This talk will take place in the beautiful offices of Joey's company - Gigapixel Creative - which double up as gallery space and events venue. Come and hear Joey's intimate, revealing, intensely life-affirming story and then join an honest conversation about bridging the gap between passion and work. See details below... I hope to see you there!

Have you ever felt caught in the space between seemingly opposite worlds, unsure of how to engage one without losing the connection to the other, and heavy with pressure to sort out your loyalties? If the answer is yes, then artist and entrepreneur Joey Kilrain will offer you a glimpse at a life large enough to encompass opposites and a pathway there.
TOPIC DESCRIPTION FROM JOEY
Living in both the Art and Business worlds is a simple balancing act. It's a matter of judging which world wins my undivided attention during the day.
During this discussion I will explain the following:
How I focus my mind on what is most important at that moment in time.
How my art and business sides act as counter-balances and keep me as my own best inspiration.
Lastly, and most importantly, how my faith shines through no matter the issue.
Educated by Philadelphia ( a love story)
How I was raised in South Philly
Why the life of an artist picked me
My epiphany / Luke 11 9-13
Why I moved to New York (the death of loved ones)
How I got started and moved up the ladder
The hard lessons learned / divine intervention
Rebounding from the loss of my first company, bad friends, and death of my brother
Restarted by faith
My faith can fill a mustard seed (sort of)
Why I won't let myself down
ABOUT JOEY KILRAIN
Born and raised in South Philly, PA. I learned art through my family, catholic school, and adventure. When I was younger inspiration came from comic books, trading cards, and graﬁtti. As I got older, my spiritual side began to shine through and the messages in my work became more associated with real-life situations.
My work can be divided into two topics: the whimsical paintings and raw drawings.
