Our latest collaborative project with Chicago artist, poet and filmmaker Paul Branton, is an exploration into the intersection of coffee, jazz and art.
The art for this carefully selected top-grade Ethiopia natural process coffee from the Guji region is “inspired by the relationship of Miles Davis and Betty...how she opened him up to new creativity,"
Paul Branton was born in 1973 in Chicago. He was influenced at an early age by the sights & sounds of the South Side’s urban environment. His acute awareness of his surroundings and love for storytelling guided his education, which ultimately guided his career.
Choosing visual art as his main focus, he entered Millikin University in Decatur, Illinois, majoring in Commercial Art with a strong emphasis in painting. It was at Millikin where he also discovered a love for poetry, a strong desire for painting, eventually putting on a one-man art exhibit displaying his works.
The art of Paul Branton is/has been exhibited throughout Illinois, including Millikin University, South Side Community Art Center, Gallery Guichard, University of Illinois at Chicago, Gallery D’Estee, Phoenix Gallery, NYCH Gallery, Chicago Truborn, Legendary Gallery, Galleryna 19, Art Basel Miami and Hyde Park Art Center.
