Jutta Koether (born 1958) is a German artist, musician and critic based in New York and Berlin since the early 1990s. Koether’s paintings are exercises in color, line, form and pattern and often feature text. Her style has precedent in the work of Sigmar Polke and Kenny Scharf. She is also inspired by artists and intellectuals who have created an alternative to mainstream culture, including underground filmmaker Kenneth Anger and musician Patti Smith

Gabriel Kuri (Born 1970 in Mexico City) ‘creates visually refined sculptures, collages, installations, and photographs, working from repurposed natural, industrial, and mass-produced objects (insulation foam, shells, soda cans, and stones, to name only a few). In Kuri’s work, which is often responsive to its exhibition site, questions of form and the nature of sculpture are of equal importance to more social, political, and economic concerns regarding the circulation of commodities (artworks included) and information within a global market.’ (via Hammer Museum)

Hannah Rothstein creates. Born with a contagious can-do attitude, Hannah doesn’t believe artists should have to limit themselves to one medium. So, she makes paintings, illustrations, jewelry, murals, carefully crafted copy, and a whole lot of good, clean trouble. In addition to all this, Hannah is often employed as a freelance copywriter and editor.

” Art should challenge you. I am interested in creating moments where things click. My practice is idea based. The core focus of my work is to raise questions, reveal in the inconsistencies, and interrogate the obvious through a series of connections and to create a state of self-awareness. Each concept dictates its own way of revealing itself so the means of expression are determined by this.” – Radu Cioca

” I always wanted to be an artist and to be able to use my ideas and creativity in different ways. Since graduating Clydebank College here in Glasgow i have been working full time on my Art and have created some interesting painting series whilst experimenting with several different and unique techniques and media. My Meteorology Series are a collection of mixed media paintings that are inspired by infrared satellite images of extreme weather conditions across the planet, whilst my Abstract series focuses on trying to show the beauty found in the every day world especially when nature and the environment have an influence. I’ve always been so inspired by nature, the environment and the beauty of the planet and have found that through painting I can express what I see and feel more clearly than with words. To me often the simplest and most overlooked things are extraordinary, like the surface of the ocean seen from below or the weathered rustic face of an old wooden door, The textures and the unusual colours found in nature can be very inspiring especially when the elements manipulate them. My goals and hopes for the future of my art is to try and make an impact with abstract art on how we see the environment and nature and try to show abstract that is a little different from the normal.” – David Munroe
