ABOUT THE ARTIST: Monte Trevor Carlton is an American artist. While he painted throughout high school, his first artistic passion was acting. Although he was offered an art scholarship, Trevor decided to pursue his dream of becoming an actor and moved to Los Angeles.
Amidst the chaos of auditions and callbacks, Trevor paid the bills by working in a custom furniture store, specializing in antiquing and faux finish designs. It was here that a style was born. Using reclaimed lumber as his canvas, Trevor started painting images of vintage Americana with subjects ranging from iconic celebrities to the famous Blues greats.
Using wood, albeit an unorthodox substrate, lent itself well to Trevor’s need to push the envelope and explore new avenues of artistic expression. Soon he was perfecting his signature distressed style by painting a raw canvas to create the appearance of wood and then using solvents and sandpaper to give the piece an overall “distressed” look.
ABOUT THE FILM: Frozen is a 2013 American 3D computer-animated musical fantasy film produced by Walt Disney Animation Studios and released by Walt Disney Pictures. The film is inspired by Hans Christian Andersen's 1844 fairy tale The Snow Queen. It tells the story of a fearless princess who sets off on a journey alongside a rugged iceman, his loyal reindeer, and a naïve snowman to find her estranged sister, whose icy powers have inadvertently trapped their kingdom in eternal winter.
