Pass the sauce: It's BBQ art for Labor Day

Posted By on Tue, Aug 31, 2010 at 4:44 PM

Anyone who knows Jason Baalman, or knows of him, will catch onto this right away.

Baalman, whom we wrote about back in 2009 ("Idol Hands"), is a master of painting and sculpting artwork out of materials unusual for artistic purposes, but ordinary in daily life: Elvis in Cheetos, Angelina Jolie in lipstick, you get the idea.

This weekend Baalman will unveil a whole new collection of works created with barbecue sauce. You can see the works at various galleries and shops in Old Colorado City as part of the First Friday Art Walk on Sept. 3 from 5-8 p.m. The pieces will be on display until Sept. 12.

Baalman recently appeared on the Rachael Ray Show, with a Cheetos homage to the host.

You can get up to speed, literally, on Baalman's unique work by visiting his YouTube channel youtube.com/user/EclecticAsylumArt. Not only does Baalman paint with mascara, he also records himself doing it and posts it online, sped up, so viewers can watch his masterpiece from start to finish.
