Artist Description"Michael Arthur is one of the most talented young artists I've ever met. . . .He makes wonderful drawings."
Michael Arthur is the archival artist of Joe's Pub, drawing the performers during their sets and sound-checks. Michael uses no pencils and no rough drafts in his work; each drawing is a live reaction to the moment.
For the last couple of years, Michael has been resurrecting and reconceiving the Vaudeville Talk and Chalk, his drawing pad, hand and pen projected live behind musicians and dancers, creating a visual accompaniment and backdrop to the music. He is a member of the indie band, Balthrop, Alabama and has performed as with the Indianapolis Symphony in Indiana and Buglisi Dance Theater at the Joyce Theater.
