Portland Musician Portraiture Project

With a desire to capture and immortalize the inspired time in which Portland has become a hotbed of creative activity and musical ingenuity, Brian Wannamaker has commissioned contemporary American oil painter Alexander Rokoff to commemorate the most influential musicians in Portland, 2008-2012 in individual life-size portraits. 

Framed, the portraits measure 9 x 5 feet.  For this project, the musicians are invited sit for their portrait. Commissioned participants to date include Isaac Brock, Storm Large and Michael Papillo as completed paintings, with others in the works but as yet unveiled.  Subjects are chosen based on musical merit, musical influence and visual interest. The long-term goal is to house the painting collection for display in a public gallery, most ideally in a live music venue.

Besides immortalizing of some of our local musical heroes, Wannamaker’s commission of the Portland Musician Portraiture Project directly supports a local artist.  Wannamaker believes in the importance of directly supporting artists in the community, rather than art administrations, and he implements this philosophy by collecting local works of art.

The Portraiture Project links the two connected genres of the creative world (visual art and music) and upon completion, will be accessible for public viewing for future generations to enjoy.

Falcon Residence Portraiture Project

Rokoff and Wannamaker first collaborated on portraits when Wannamaker commissioned Rokoff to paint portraits of twelve tenants who had lived in the Falcon Apartment Building for over ten to thirty years – both to honor them, and to capture a moment in time in a rapidly gentrifying neighborhood.  This sense of history adds to the community feeling at the Falcon.  Brian wrote an “experience” story about each tenant, which is mounted by each piece.  The Falcon Residence Portraiture Project paintings are currently on display in the Falcon Art Community.
