TribeLA Magazine: What fires you up?
Charles Bibbs:  Whenever I see something new and inspiring in the arts. Whenever I finish a work of art, it’s a time to celebrate. I may indulge in a libation or break out in a dance.

Charles Bibbs continues to lend his support to artists through his mentorship and the Art2000 Visual Arts Association, a 501c3 non-profit organization which he founded in the year of 2000. Before becoming a full-time artist, Charles spent 25 years working in corporate America where he gained invaluable experience in the business world, including learning the principles of marketing which he applies to many aspects of his art business.
