New Orleans has so much wonderful culture from Jazz Musicians to Blues Singers and of course Artists. This city seems to embrace all different kinds of artists and has been the start for many who have become famous. But, what is special about all of these famous artists is that they are New Orleans Locals and they will treat you as friend.
One such artist is the famous Terrance Osborne. Terrance Osborne, a 41 year old native New Orleanian, grew up in the heart of the culturally rich city of New Orleans. Being inspired by his diverse and colorful social surroundings, Osborne always held an undercurrent interest in art, largely fueled by his mother and his older brother. Fascinated by color, Osborne worked with whatever materials he could get his hands on. He attended the prestigious New Orleans Center for Creative Arts (N.O.C.C.A.) while in high school and later graduated with a degree in Fine Arts from Xavier University in New Orleans. After Hurricane Katrina Osborne decided to dedicate his time completely to his art. His work has recently become a national recognized item. Over the past few years he has been featured in a slew of public media. In 2004 Osborne was granted the honorary “Forty Under Forty Award” for his teaching and artistic contributions to the city of New Orleans. In 2006 Osborne was honored by New Orleans Magazine as one of the “Fifty People to Watch” for 06′. In 2007 his Official Jazz & Heritage Festival Poster quickly became one of the most sought after posters of the year. In 2008 Osborne partnered with Nike to design a poster and the first New Orleans Air Force 1 tennis shoe. His association with Nike lead to a relationship with the NBA Hornets of which Osborne designed the first official Hornets poster. Be it art connoisseur or causal collector, Terrance Osborne’s art continues to be highly sought after.
