Gray Malin, an L.A.-based photographer, graduated from Emerson College with a degree in photography and marketing. His work has been exhibited in the Dallas Museum of Art, David Streets Gallery in Beverly Hills, and Gallery 825 of the Los Angeles Art Association. In his photographs Malin searches for (and finds) beauty the world over, capturing breathtaking landscapes (often beach scenes) from a helicopter. The resulting photos and their gem-like hues are sun-soaked and almost impossibly perfect. Fittingly, Malin’s work has been featured in fashion magazines like Elle and he has collaborated with David LaChappelle, whose photographs also blur the boundary between commercial and fine art photography.

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.
