Above Art Studios

Happy #MancrushMonday #HipNJ! Today we have not one, but two #mcm’s: Wilford Charles and Dontae Muse, owners of Above Art Studios in New Brunswick.

The studio has four resident artists, but rotates between the artwork of other artists. Some of the artwork is local, while others come from different states. Some pieces even come from other countries like Australia.

Above Art Studios’ focus on “art and all of the above” is clear: the studio features poetry, comedy, and music, as well as pop art and fine urban art. Once a month, the studio holds a poetry night. Every month and a half, a mini-concert series called “The Listening Room” takes place. Even more events to be found on their website, with electronic flyers posted for a “Painted Poetry Slam,” “Paint & Sip Thursdays” and a “Fall Student Exhibition”. By hosting these ongoing events, Wilford and Dontae are encouraging all aspects of art to be shared and appreciated. The studio is great for not only the art community, but for the general community it is a part of.

Dontae brought a work of art to #HipNJ’S studio that he commissioned for Mother’s Day. It is a gorgeous piece of Dontae and his mother by a resident artist.

To join Dontae and Wilford for a poetry, music, and art-filled night, visit aboveartstudios.com.
