FINE ARTISTS ALVIN CLAYTON AND MICHAEL KILGORE PAYS HOMAGE TO PABLO PICASSO AND HENRI MATISSE, THEIR PRINCIPLE ART MENTORS, DATING BACK TO THE NUCLEUS OF THEIR ART CAREERS. ALVIN CLAYTON, DURING HIS EXTENSIVE YEARS AS AN INTERNATIONAL MALE SUPERMODEL IN PARIS, BECAME FASCINATED AND THEN INSPIRED BY MATISSE, TEACHING HIMSELF HOW TO CREATE ART IN THE MATISSE TRADITION WHILE PROFOUNDLY MAKING HIS OWN STATEMENT, MATISSE WAS ALSO SELF TAUGHT. MATISSE HAD SUCH AN IMPACT ON HIS LIFE, ONE OF HIS BELOVED DAUGHTERS IS NAMED "MATISSE". FAST-FORWARDING TO LOS ANGELES, ALVIN HONED HIS ART SKILLS AND PRESENTED EPIC ART EXHIBITS INSIDE HIS ABODE, IN THE VICINITY OF THE LOS ANGELES COUNTY MUSEUM OF ART, THE EXHIBITS WERE ATTENDED BY A-LIST CELEBRITIES WHO WOULD BECOME DEVOUT COLLECTORS OF HIS MASTERWORKS. IT WAS DURING THIS PERIOD WHEN MICHAEL KILGORE WHO IS INTERNATIONALLY KNOWN AS "MIKEL KILGOUR", HAUTE COUTURE & BESPOKE FASHION DESIGNER AND RETAILER, WAS INTRODUCED TO CLAYTON'S ARTWORKS. KILGORE WAS 12 YEARS OLD WHEN HE BECAME A FINE ART MAJOR, HIS FASHION CAREER WAS ALL CONSUMING AND IN 2003, INSPIRED BY CLAYTON, HE RETURNED TO HIS FINE ART CAREER, OPENING GALLERIE MICHAEL KILGORE IN BEVERLY HILLS IN 2004, NOW LOCATED IN HANCOCK PARK, LOS ANGELES SINCE 2009. KILGORE WAS MESMERIZED BY THE ICONIC DIVERSITY OF PICASSO AND TO THIS DAY, THAT FASCINATION CONTINUES. 

KILGORE AND CLAYTON ARE EMBARKING ON THIS GARGATUAN HISTORY MAKING ART COLLABORATION. IT WILL BE AN EXTRAORDINARY JOURNEY AS THEY WILL BE EXHIBITING SELECTED EXISITING ARTWORKS AND THEN, NEW WORKS, SOME OF WHICH THEY WILL CREATE ON THE SAME CANVAS BUT NOT LIKE BASQUIAT AND WARHOL WHO FAILED TO GIVE BIRTH TO ARTWORKS THAT WAS TRULY A SYNTHESIS OF WHAT THEY BOTH REPRESENT INTERTWINED INTO A NEW PERIOD IN THEIR RESPECTIVE CAREERS. CLAYTON AND KILGORE WILL BECOME ONE ARTIST, THE POSSIBILITIES ARE ENDLESS. THE EXHIBIT WILL HAVE A PRESTIGOUS ADVISORY BOARD AND BOARD OF DIRECTORS. PRESENTED IN NEW YORK AT A YET TO BE DETERMINED LOCATION, THERE WILL BE A VIP OPENING RECEPTION FOLLOWED BY VIEWING DATES FOR THE PUBLIC, WHICH WILL BE BY APPOINTMENT ONLY. ALL WORKS WILL BE OFFERED FOR ACQUIREMENT UNLESS THEY ARE PERMANENTLY INDUCTED IN THE PRIVATE COLLECTIONS OF THE ARTISTS. THE EXHIBIT HAS NOT YET BEEN ENTITLED.

ALVIN CLAYTON CONTINUES TO MODEL FOR SPECIAL BOOKINGS AS TIME ALLOWS AND IS A RESTUARANTEUR, ALVINS & FRIENDS IS LOCATED IN NEW ROCHELLE, NEW YORK. "MIKEL KILGOUR" CONTINUES HIS CAREER IN 

FASHION AS A DESIGNER, FINE ART PHOTOGRAPHER, ART DIRECTOR AND FASHION HISTORIAN.
