Artist/Dramatist Joseph Kaknes
Two years ago, Joseph Kaknes stood at the graveside of Vincent Van Gogh when he heard the great artist's words echo in his head. "Fear nothing; just paint." One look at Kaknes' bold strokes and vivid use of color, and you see the spirit of Van Gogh. In fact, Van Gogh became such a mentor to him, that Kaknes created the one-man show Van Gogh. Part homage, part history lesson, Van Gogh transports audience members to Auvers-sur-Oise, France where the 37-year-old artist conducts his final painting lesson, recounting his life. During Van Gogh, Kaknes will paint, completing a canvas by the end of the performance.
