An old women told her granddaughter: “My child, there is a battle between two wolves inside us all. One is evil. It is anger, jealousy, greed, and resentment. The other is good. It is joy, love, hope, humility, kindness, empathy, and bravery.” The girl thought about it, and asked, “Grandmother, which wolf wins? The old woman quietly replied, “The one you feed.”

At Redefine Gallery we love to support and encourage the next generation of artists. Our exhibit this month is a special collaboration with the local art group: ArtReach Orlando. We teamed up with ArtReach and artist Boy Kong to put together an art show featuring a group of children that live in the community of Bithlo. ArtReach has been working with these children on various art projects, and we will be showcasing a few of the works they have produced, as well as some photography focusing on these children in their community, by photographer Wille J. Allen Jr.

This event is free and open to the public – Donations and a portion of art sales will go to benefit ArtReach Orlando and the children they work with.
Donations and purchases can be made at the gallery. Donations are also accepted on the ArtReach website here:

Below is more information about ArtReach Orlando and what they do.

*ArtReach Orlando:
ArtReach Orlando is an art outreach program that works with children in underserved areas of Orange County, Florida. We are a 501 © 3 non-profit that explores the nexus between art and social justice.
Our Mission: ArtReach Orlando supports art projects that foster creativity and hope, develop self-esteem, and offer children a platform to reflect, re-vision, and rejoice. By fostering creativity, we are encouraging and empowering children to imagine the positive changes they wish to see and be in their own lives, their communities, and the world.

*SAAFE Project:
SAAFE: Social Awareness – Arts For Empowerment is a special initiative and partnership between ArtReach Orlando and The Orlando Repertory Theatre. SAAFE combines visual, written, and dramatic arts programming to engage middle school students in conversation about how we treat one another and give them insight into the dynamics of bullying. The interactive programming provides students the ability to explore bullying from the inside-out; understand why people bully, the causes & effects of bullying, and the individual part they play in bullying. We hope this program will create an open conversation about bullying to raise awareness and help students understand how they can address it in their own school community.

*Art Truck Mobile Classroom:
Last summer ArtReach Orlando became the proud owners of a 1989 Born Free camper. The camper has been converted to our very own Mobile Art Classroom. Full Blown Advanced Automotive restored the truck, and Hittn Skins designed its graphic wrap, customizing it into a functioning art studio. The art truck made its debut voyage in March 2015. This amazing mobile art classroom has enabled ArtReach to provide hands-on arts programming featuring professional local artists to children and their families in underserved areas of Orlando and Orange County. ArtReach is “Taking the Art Mobile!”

*Community Outreach: Bithlo United Global Outreach and Orange County Academy
In 2012, ArtReach Orlando began working with students at Orange County Academy in Bithlo, FL through a community outreach initiative with United Global Outreach. ArtReach provided a free children’s summer art camp in partnership with Orange County Academy and hired award-winning photojournalist, Wille J. Allen Jr., to document the faces, culture and living conditions of Bithlo residents. The children’s artwork and photographers were featured in an installation called the “Welcome to Bithlo” Art Show in August of 2012. The exhibit called attention to the past, present and future of an ignored community in Central Florida. We are excited to announce that we have returned to Bithlo! ArtReach Orlando’s Artist-in-Residence, Jenn Benner, is currently providing art classes once a week to students at Orange County Academy and we will be offering a special free winter break art camp. Orange County Academy is a K-12 school that takes in children who have fallen through the cracks of public school education and who need a little more love and attention. We’re so honored to be a part of the great work being done there.

Crayon Carvings by Hoang Tran

About The Artist-
Wax Nostalgic is the work of Hoang Tran, an artist residing in Sunnyvale, CA. Hoang carves geek and pop culture inspired characters out of everyday crayons. He draws influence from a variety of sources including movies, television, animation, comic books and video games.
Each crayon is hand carved using precise dental instruments under a bright light with the naked eye. The multiple colors that some of the carvings have are not made with paint. Instead wax from other colored crayons is melted and carefully applied to the main crayon. Thus each carving is made completely out of crayon wax.
Hoang enjoys combining the nostalgia of crayons from our childhood with the nostalgia of our favorite characters we grew up loving. By using crayons in an entirely new way, he hopes to encourage creative thinking outside the (crayon) box along with showing how ordinary things can become extraordinary.
Words from the Artist –
My background probably isn’t typical for an artist. Growing up I was very artistic and enjoyed being creative. However eventually art became less important during everyday schooling so I did it less and less as time went on. Luckily though I was a very bright student and found myself in dentistry school years later. Unfortunately after three years there, I came to the realization that dentistry was not for me and I made the difficult decision to withdraw from school. I decided I wanted to try to find a more creative career path. During this time when I was trying to find myself and what I wanted to do in life, I came across carving crayons and have been doing it ever since.
I didn’t come up with the idea of carving crayons myself. Around the first year of dental school, I saw the work of Diem Chau online who carved some animals out of crayons. That in itself was remarkable, however what really struck me was the fact that I was doing something similar to that already. During the first years of dental school, we had to carve teeth out of wax to help learn dental anatomy and improve our hand skills. So when I saw Diem Chau’s work, I knew I already had the tools and skills to do it myself. I wanted to give it a try but I was just too busy at the time. After I quit dental school, a friend of mine was putting on a small art show. She asked if I wanted to participate and I agreed to. While brainstorming what to make for it, I remembered the idea of carving crayons. I gave it a try and they were well received at the show. Then I posted my work online which also became popular. Because of this and since I also enjoyed doing it, I just kept on going.

Peace Out

Redefine’s own, Peter Van Flores, will begin his travels this year. His first stop and indefinite residency will be in the Bay Area, California. He takes off at the end of May and we would like to invite all of you to one final showing of a collection of his works created between 2012 and 2015. All will be available for purchase, and the pieces from previous years that were trapped in his studio just got a fresh update with new details added to them. Peter is deeply appreciative of all the support for Redefine Gallery and becoming one of Orlando’s artists. We hope you all stop by and say “Peace Out” to him so he can return the favor.

All the Art Work is heavily influenced by Street Art, Typography, Graffiti, along with History and Politics.
