Phoenix and River Forestier

Five-year-old Sarasota based artist Phoenix Forestier has been honing his skills in a variety of art forms for the past several years. An artist who is determined to create his vision, Phoenix can create both quick minimalistic works as well as pieces with more focus and detail. When he is not painting or drawing, Phoenix enjoys doing puzzles, building, and learning to skateboard.

He is also a mentor to other emerging artists, namely his younger brother, River, who also contributed to this piece.

River Forestier is another young emerging Sarasota based artist. At three years old, he is more of an abstract artist and loves helping his brother create. When River is not creating art, he enjoys singing, dancing, and making music, riding his bike, and twirling his mama’s hair.

Together, this team of brothers is skilled at creating and executing a vision, well beyond their years.

This piece was designed entirely by Phoenix. It is an inclusive pirate ship because Phoenix believes that love is love, and that applies to pirates too! Also, both Phoenix and River’s favorite color is rainbow.
