Artist Arellano Gustavo Teaches Everyone Color Is Freedom, Tavi, The Renowned Painter Shares His Extraordinary Artwork

Recently a friend shared the artwork of renowned artist Aellano Gustavo.  His unique and dynamic works are  delivering a message that we need to hear so badly right now and some of Hollywood’s elite are fans and collect his work as well as collectors around the world. 

TAVI by Aellano Gustavo (  has been featured in: New York, Arizona, Miami, Chicago, Sante Fe, and Laguna Beach). Born in 1965 n Texas, where he grew up, he learned a lot about patience and art.  He is now a Huntington Beach, California resident. The self taught, Native American artist is the creator of TAVi Art. His whimsical style and use of ‘puffy paints’, acrylics and resin create works that embody his love of color. Wanting his audience to feel a wide gamut of emotions and feelings, the characters TAVi has created are muses for bringing the power and experience of emotions and feelings on canvas. Admiration for Andy Warhol, Keith Haring and Picasso have influenced the portrayal of his unique style. For TAVi, “Color is Freedom.”

Arellano’s works include messages of Love, Faith, Believe, Trust, Hope, Dream, etc.  Among the personalities and public who have discovered “Gus'” as they refer to him, find these messages in their homes to be a reinforcement of their own internal needs.
