The Chicken Man

If you're from around here, you probably know what I'm talking about. If not, you probably think I am crazy! You may have seen in in Southern Living -Ernest Lee, The Chicken Man. Don't worry, he does paint more than chickens. He is a Columbia, SC based artist who sets up a portable gallery/studio on the corner of Lady & Harden streets and also travels to various art festivals throughout the year. He has been painting for forever and has recently decided to expand his artwork into the fashion world. Check out some if his t-shirts as well! If you don't live close or aren't passing thru, you're in luck. Some of his painting are available online here. Grab a couple...small painting start at just $20!

"Be what you are.
Don't be what you ain't.
Because if you be what you ain't
then you ain't what you are." -- Ernest Lee
