Jim Lind

Taken from the artist's website: " I’m Jim Lind and an entering senior at Savannah College of Art and Design in Georgia. I strongly believe that each person is made up of a collection of the stories they tell. For this reason I’ve always felt compelled to share my stories with others. Whether real, somewhat real, or entirely fictional, these events expose that which is truly important to me. Often the images illicit fabricated narratives that are deeply rooted from the stories I experienced as a child. My photographs are a window into the realities and fantasies that I immerse myself in every day. There is a need to create new work that visually excites the imagination much in the same way a book does. While a picture may be worth 1000 words, a great picture escapes words and enters the imagination. "

Masakatsu Sashie

' Masakatsu Sashie's works are often called "orb paintings" since he paints details from his youth as very detailed, compact spheres. Hailing from Kanazawa, Japan, his art captures the scope of his youthful activities and the orbs often represent memories that fade away from the world. His previous works were full of dark imagery, but his more recent pieces include vibrant, often colorful details such as vending machines, fast food signage, and videogames. He cites Mobile Suit Gundam as an influence, and enjoys art by Yukio Oscar Oiwa and Antonio Lopez Garcia. Currently, he teaches at his alma mater, Kanazawa College of Art. ' (via Art Info)

Adam Hathorn

' Adam Hathorn was born in New York in 1977. After bouncing around the tristate area a bit, he and his family settled down in Boston, Massachusetts. An above average intellect and way above average Attention Deficit Disorder led him to turn his notebooks into sketchbooks, his social studies class to art class and gym to nap time. Besides skateboarding, and lighting things on fire, drawing evil shit was all he really cared about. From old Pushead skate graphics to underground comics, anything gross or funny was what made the cut on his trapper keeper. In 8th grade, Hathorn was supposed to do a report on something that he planned spending a lot of money on, so he chose tattooing. Instead of spending a lot of money on it, he turned it into a career, and has used it to fund numerous adventures, rent, and a gang of stuff he does not need from the swap meet. After high school, Adam attended the Savannah College of Art and Design in Georgia where he also did a tattoo apprenticeship. After doing his time in the south, notably Savannah and Atlanta, he moved west to find gold. He now resides in sunny San Diego where he can be found slingin' and stingin' tats with the Guru Tattoo wrecking crew, and keepin' it real on the regular with the rest of the folks in this show.
