 photo Untitled-3_zps3s1zljzv.jpg Paul Lewin: " I was born in Kingston, Jamaica in 1973 and moved to the U.S. with my family in 1977. I spent most of my years growing up in Miami FL and I am now living in Oakland, CA . My Father was passionate about woodworking and very driven in his practice. He was my first artistic inspiration. He also loved collecting art. My childhood home was filled with paintings, sculptures, and artifacts of many different cultures from around the world. These works ,along with my love of sci-fi and Fantasy art inspired a lot of my early creativity. My art over the years has also been influenced by indigenous folklore,tribal cultures, world religion,and ancient societies. I am currently working on a series of surreal folk art paintings inspired by Afro-Caribbean folklore entitled "Roots of the Cotton Tree". The work reflects on the journey of my ancestors through the diaspora and of ourselves today as our stories continue to unfold. In the Caribbean much of the folklore has been passed down from generation to generation,dating back to ancient Africa,and kept alive through the traditional art of storytelling. The work for this series formed somewhere in the cross-section of Sci-fi, fantasy, and folklore. I like to mix traditional Caribbean and African motifs with surreal visions of nature and the ancestry that surrounds us daily."  photo Untitled-2_zpsrfrgtaqs.jpg  photo Untitled-1_zpsclp2f7vt.jpg

The 23-year old artist considers his art as a personal hobby which turned out to be his part-time freelance work after being recognized by various design blogs, international magazines and online communities. Most of his works are characterized by whimsical lines, patterns, characters and little elements that are spontaneously combined to create massive compositions depicting his everyday experiences or anything that inspires him.  photo 655ca01edca06780921a20f00cf5b62e_zps839l98lk.jpg  photo f809a8a0d7771961dcc973af50591f8b_zpsvy7dcjaf.jpg  photo 6c086dedec7cc8bbc1451caf20c88531_zpsxibf3q7r.jpg

She studied fine art at UCLA and received her BA in 2008. Isabella’s work pervades many mediums. It is a critique of pop culture and society through a lens of humor, irony and sarcasm. Cosmetic color palettes, sparkly things, liberal use of pattern texture and a healthy smattering of fashion and design are implemented to render her imagery. She works in Los Angeles.  photo Sibyl-200dpi_zpsirvs3060.jpg  photo poupee-200dpi-2014_zps6ccvi43u.jpg  photo Debutante-Debbie_zpsqi8hkd3t.jpg

I exhibit work in the UK and internationally and like all things quirky, scary and surreal; drawing inspiration from dusty attic treasures, behavioural ponderings, a desolate art film or two, unnerving animals, nature and adventures." - Ruth Munro  photo RuthMunroIllustration211_zpsifvpplok.jpg

Daliah Ammar

Daliah is currently earning her BFA at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. The purpose of Daliah’s work is to transcend the notion of the self and the physicality of paint, resonating from her own vulnerable and personal experiences – as a means of conveying life as it blooms and decays from within. Expressing that awareness of the self and reflecting to the viewer establishes a relationship between themselves and herself. Daliah’s works are confrontational, yet, intimate and personal – using the painted surface as a trope for the physical and psychological presence between the inner self and external viewer.  photo tumblr_ndmbrxBMkl1qdy3qwo1_1280_zpspijysse3.jpg  photo tumblr_n9gbsh2a0T1qdy3qwo1_1280_zpssqdpllgc.jpg  photo tumblr_n69jh6pGT51qdy3qwo1_1280_zps8jveppof.jpg
