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: Big Hero 6 is a 2014 American computer-animated comedy-superhero film created and produced at Walt Disney Animation Studios and based on the Marvel Comics superhero team of the same name by Man of Action. The film is the 54th film in the Disney Animated Canon and the sixth film in the Disney Revival era.
Big Hero 6 was the first Disney animated feature film to star characters from Marvel Entertainment, which The Walt Disney Company acquired in 2009 and thus gave special thanks to that subsidiary.
The film received universal acclaim from audiences and critics and was a box office and commercial success. It won the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature and was nominated for an Annie Award for Best Animated Feature and a Golden Globe Award for Best Animated Feature Film. An animated television series following the events of the film premiered on Disney XD in Fall 2017.
