'Donald Ross also known as “scribe” is 37 years old and currently lives in Kansas City, Missouri of the United States. The animated, public murals by Scribe are readily recognizable in Midtown Kansas City and throughout different part of the United States, Canada and down into Mexico where he has both painted murals and had gallery shows. Scribe incorporates a menagerie of animal characters developed over many years representing a particular, self-referential trait that he inserts in various scenarios. Scribe intersperses personal iconography, biblical and fairytale references, animation and metaphor in works intended as contemporary parables for public audiences, hence the use of his artist name and persona. Through accessible idiom and image, Scribe incorporates humor and play in the conveyance of serious messages regarding personal integrity, attainment of knowledge, and adventure.' Website here

Born in West Lafayette, IN and raised in Midland, MI, Joey Salamon
(b.1988) from an early age showed exceptional artistic talent. He experimented with styles for years until discovering the medium of paper collage while studying fine art at Grand Valley State University on Michigan’s west side. After graduating from GVSU in 2010, Salamon moved across the country several times while honing his craft and expanding his range in mediums. From working newspaper design jobs in Chicago and on the Hawaiian island of Molokai, interning with renowned paper-artist Jen Stark in Miami, briefly living and working at the Acorn Community Farm commune in rural Virginia, he eventually found himself back in his home state of Michigan by settling in the New Center neighborhood of Detroit in the summer of 2014. Salamon has produced work for clients including Slightly Stoopid, The Polyphonic Spree, Murder by Death, The Airborne Toxic Event, The Disco Biscuits, The Orwells, The War on Drugs, Adeline Records, Naukabout Music Festival, The NORML Foundation, Fifth Estate Magazine and Grand Valley State University and has been featured on the Juxtapoz Magazine website, People of Print, and Scene 360 Magazine. Known for his detail-oriented, eye-popping and colorful psychedelic work, Salamon credits many themes as inspirations for his creations such as; botanical illustration, ancient cultures/civilizations, cityscapes, outer space, the use of repetition, the 60s counterculture/90s grunge movement, contemporary fashion and street art.
