Not just show the balloon as an object but create a world with them. I created new shapes of balloons and played with colours." - Julien De Repentigny  photo JulienDeRepentigny_kusama_3_zps3270acb8.jpg

Joey Salamon

 photo KillingFields-1200x952_zps0967fbf8.jpg  photo YouHaveArrived-1200x889_zps9c2e9e91.jpg 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.  photo StayFree-647x1024_zpsef313fa9.jpg

I am inspired by the poetry of landscape and the endless creative potential of the portrait. I have been working from my studio in the beautiful Norfolk countryside for the last twelve years licensing my images to the fine art publishing industry. I am constantly looking for meeting points between painting and photography." - Sarah Jarrett  photo IMG_1198_zps0b981736.jpg  photo photo-255_zps10f23547.jpg

For her, the internet, streets, gallery walls, paper and materials of any size can easily turn into efficient spaces. In this context, the artist is enthused by animation figures, commercials and narrative styles of urban origin that surround her."

I then map triangles over the face drawing, around the different tones on the face. The lines are added in afterwards to determine the amount of tone needed in each triangle." - Josh Bryan  photo 02_zps6d0e30ce.jpg  photo 03_zpseeca746e.jpg
