About
Studio Member since 2012

b.1984

Ted Gram-Boarini is at once a visual artist and musician, and his preferred modes of artistic expression are mutually influential. This is witnessed in the mesmerizing rhythm of his brush strokes, and in the artistry of the lyrics he has written for the North Shore studio band, Van Go Go.

“I enjoy talking to people and toward becoming my own person. That is, to help people realize who I am. Because if I don’t, then how can I do this and be my own man in terms of art?”

Gram-Boarini reimagines music and movie references into acrylic paintings on canvas. Distinctively, his introspective nature and personal connection to the reference always shine through. Gram-Boarini allows us to see him through his work, while leaving space for the viewer’s personal reverie.

“This piece is successful because it’s supposed to show people that you can do whatever you put your mind to. Everyone has to make their own way through life. That’s what it’s about.”

Gram-Boarini is a singer and percussionist for the studio band Van Go Go. He is also a member of the studio’s curating team. His art has been featured on Arts of Life merchandise, and on our partner site, ArtLifting.com. Gram-Boarini was also interviewed on-camera by WGN news in 2018.
