Armando Silva is a world renowned performance artist from Greeley, CO who received a Fine Arts degree from the University of Northern Colorado. He goes by the name "Art Man Do" when he is creating one of his very unique original performance pieces. Armando was the highlight of the evening at the 2016 SAVA Soiree at Embassy Suites in Loveland on Friday night.

Silva believes strongly in giving back to the community. On his website, Armando wrote, " I believe with my artistic powers I have a responsibility within my community to lead, educate and give back." His beautiful painting, that he created as we all watched, fetched $1,000 in the SAVA Soiree live auction. The event benefits the programs at the Sava Center that impact those affected by sexual violence in Northern Colorado.

My lovely wife, Jenny, captured some photos of Art Man Do in action on Friday night. Watch a blank canvas become a beautiful piece of art in just 20 pictures.
