    BIIJA-ARTIST

    in Entertainment

    Biija (bee-zjah), a Sanskrit word meaning “seed”, grew up in the Washington, DC, New York, Los Angeles, and Paris, France metropolitan areas. Her first memory of painting was when she was about four or five years old. She would doodle on her wallpaper, once her parents discovered the doodles, she was promptly punished. This did not deter her; she simply pealed the wallpaper up and doodled underneath.


    Throughout college, she studied art at numerous art schools, as well as privately with world-renowned professional artists to master, broaden, and perfect her skills. In the Washington, DC area, she established a thriving commercial faux, decorative and mural business for many years, until she was called to pursue her own self-expression through her fine art. Leaving everything behind seven years ago, she drove across country to create Biija Fine Art, LLC as a fine art business and brand, specializing in large-format abstract oil paintings. She creates original paintings, prints, clothing and home goods for sale, lease and commission. Originally, trained in photorealism, when given the opportunity to paint whatever she liked, she chose abstraction. Biija feels that abstraction transcends above time, culture, language, and other conceptual and intellectual barriers that may otherwise alienate the viewer. Biija explores perception, reality, the cosmos, and the Creator with the specific intention to contribute to the positive elevation of her audience. Her perspective is to reach, touch, and inspire all people of the world, regardless of social, cultural, political, or other obstructions. Biija’s work has been collected nationally and internationally. .

We will talk to him during the first half hour about the project, it's history, the process of selecting artists, and anything else from behind the scenes that he wants to share.    We will then talk to Lily Butter at around half-way through the show. Lily is an incredibly unique artist, and she has created a 90 feet wide project that is called "Ultra Church, 50 VIP Party People 1948-2014". This piece contains dozens of portraits of people who have been integral in the LGBT party scene over the past 60 years. Mandy Goodhandy and Todd Klinck are honoured to be two of the people included.
