Billy Morrison

Billy Morrison

Billy Morrison is one of the few rockers who can truly say he made it all the way to the top from the very bottom. 20 years ago, Billy was homeless and close to death. Today he is on the road with Billy Idol in support of the new Idol album (on which he co-wrote a number of tracks with Idol and Stevens) “Kings and Queens of the Underground” and able to share his ultimate success story of overcoming addiction and becoming one of the world’s top rhythm guitar players. From playing guitar in the Los Angeles-based celebrity supergroups Camp Freddy and Royal Machines to joining rock band The Cult on their 2001 reunion to writing and recording with his own bands Stimulator, Doheny, Circus Diablo, releasing his own solo material, and playing guitar for Billy Idol since 2009, Billy makes music at all levels.

In recent years, Morrison picked up paint and canvas and proceeded to paint prolifically. He has now not only amassed a body of work, but has also found a customer base that appreciates his darker introspective imagery. When asked about his new creative outlet and the subject matter, Billy replied, ”I just paint what lives inside my head. Sometimes that’s skulls, hand grenades and naked chicks. Other times its a statement on something I see in the world that I want to comment on or draw attention to.” His provocative and thought-inspiring statements embrace concepts of duality and mixed metaphors, and his use of color and mixed media has been embraced by both the music and art worlds.

An avid practitioner of paper marbling, Ellierex captures swirled, kaleidoscopic colors and intricately designed patterns painted from an aqueous surface and then transfers them onto paper or fabric. She uniquely combines traditional marbling methods with her own innovative and meditative techniques, utilizing the concepts of intuitive or automatic painting. The “flow” within her work creates a space where viewer’s minds can truly wander.

Ellierex’s creative achievements include large-scale installation public artworks, album covers for musical recording artists, print design for film and television, and exhibitions throughout galleries across the United States. For The Artist Tree West Hollywood, she created an original, mesmerizing mural, which adorns the walls of the store’s VIP shopping lounge.

Jahlil Nzinga

Jahlil Nzinga

Contemporary American artist Jahlil Nzinga seeks to transform the art world from the inside out with his highly emotional visual art, avant-garde techniques, and an understanding that an artist cannot be separated from any component of his life-affirming work.

Nzinga understands his art to be the purest expression of himself. So improvisational is his work that he equates it to a passion murder—exploding with emotion and without constraint or premeditated design. Nzinga has no desire to instruct his audience by using literal imagery but instead calls his viewers to wonder, be provoked, and conjure individual interpretation and analysis of his often-surreal renderings.

Nzinga created a custom floor-to-ceiling mural in his trademark freehand style for The Artist Tree West Hollywood. The mural, positioned at the rear of the retail showroom and the entryway to the VIP shopping lounge, inspires viewers to examine each of Nzinga’s unique interpretations of the human face.

Their work juxtaposes historical and social themes against bright colors and shapes to channel a refreshing perspective and challenge the ideas of the world. The Couto Brothers’ original “Wish You Were Here” mural welcomes visitors to The Artist Tree West Hollywood, reaffirming The Artist Tree’s mission of creating a welcoming destination for community, cannabis, and art.
