Let it never be said that a gift you give a child today won’t make a difference tomorrow.
Brothers Michael and Brian Jasinski, our Featured Artists for the 27th Annual Cadillac Las Olas Art Fair, discovered their love of photography thanks to their stepdad, who gave Michael a camera when he was a young boy. He took a photography class in high school and soon discovered the power of interpreting everyday scenes through his camera lens.
When he left for University of Florida to pursue a degree in accounting, his younger brother Brian picked up the camera and he, too, found out what a powerful instrument of expression photography can be. After high school, Brian attended UF as well, and after getting his degree in criminal justice, he moved to Colorado. During one of Michael’s visits to his brother, Brian showed him a photo he had taken. It was then that Michael realized that Brian, too, had an eye for photography.
A short time later, the brothers realized that they were unhappy in their respective careers. After all, taking pictures has always felt natural to them. So in 1999 they started their business and in 2003 the Jasinski brothers went into photography full-time. They have been a staple of Howard Alan Events shows since around 2001, where they have the opportunity to meet others who are passionate about art in some excellent venues.
“We feel really blessed to do what we’re doing,” says Michael, describing how many of the people they’ve met at shows all over the country have become like family. As for the brothers, they have truly created a family business; their stepdad — the one who truly started it all with a holiday gift — makes custom frames for their pieces.
The Jasinski brothers capture the essence of the sandscapes, reminiscent of their childhood home in Merritt Island with depth and finesse. From breathtaking ocean shots to beautiful landscapes, Michael and Brian share their vision of the world around them, turning otherwise ordinary scenes into unforgettable slices of still life. Their talents, individual and collective, are part of what makes Howard Alan Events shows so great. To learn more about the Jasinski brothers, please visit their website.
This weekend, at the 27th Annual Cadillac Las Olas Art Fair, the Jasinski brothers are giving away what Michael says is his favorite image: “Whispering Waves,” a gorgeous 36″ x 60″ print that transports you to the cool, calm waters of the ocean at sunset. Patrons can enter the Featured Artist Giveaway at the Jasinski Brothers booth, where they can see the piece displayed. The winner can find out if they take it home on Sunday afternoon, when the winner is chosen about an hour before the festival ends. Remember, the festival is free and open to the public, so bring your friends and family and enter to win this amazing piece!
