Funtastic original art by Nan Coffey at Tender Greens Point Loma (Liberty Station)

Back in January I met with two of the owners of Tender Greens Restaurants, a fast casual restaurant chain in California. Josh and I have been regulars at their Point Loma location since it first opened a couple years ago. Their food is fantastic to say the least! This summer they are opening their 13th location in downtown San Diego on the corner of First and Broadway and they’ve hired me to create a permanent installation of original paintings for this new location. As we began conceptualizing the work for this new project, they asked me to also create new originals for their Point Loma location as well. Good times indeed.

I first met with co-founder/owner Erik Oberholtzer and executive chef/owner Pete Balistreri. They were introduced to my work thanks to their catering manager, Heidi Wahl whom Josh met by chance one night while managing at Bali Hai.  Heidi showed my work to Erik and Pete and we all decided to meet.  I invited them to my place so they could see some of my work in person. The fact is, the internet is a great tool to introduce people to your work, but it really does not do justice to seeing things like art in person. I guess this was a good idea because it seemed clear to me from the start that this would be a great match – their concept, food philosophies, and friendly demeanors seemed to meld well with my painting style. Plus, they love art. You can just tell. By the questions they ask, the artists they talk about, the interest in my background. I didn’t realize it at the time, but it turns out they have already worked with some of my favorite artists on their other locations – Chris Reccardi for their Pasadena location, Jeremyville for Santa Monica, 123Klan for Irvine and Jon Burgerman for La Jolla. More good times. This puts me in good company for sure.

Here are a few pictures of the install of paintings at the Liberty Station Tender Greens in Point Loma. More pieces are still being made for this location, so there will be more pics to come. Also working on the new pieces for their Downtown San Diego location which will be opening soon!

About Nan Coffey

Nan pulls her inspiration from the past, present and future and has developed a unique style filled with bright colors, clean lines and funtastic characters that are submerged in a chaotic pop filled world. Her varied influences range from the art of Takashi Murakami to Dr. Seuss to Mary Blair to Andy Warhol. Nan has had 2 one day expositions at the world famous Bali Hai in San Diego as their featured artist in 2010 and 2011, had a piece displayed at the 2011 Disney D23 Expo in Anaheim, and has been commissioned by Google for her artistic talents.  Her work can be seen in galleries in San Diego and Las Vegas and she is regularly commissioned by both corporate and private collectors. She is currently working on a new body of original paintings for Tender Greens restaurants that will hang permanently in their Point Loma and Downtown San Diego locations. Nan has a BA in Animation and Visual Effects. She paints every day in her home by the beach in San Diego and regularly paints live in galleries for the public to view her process.
