Swoon, “Caledonia Curry” (b. 1978, USA)🇺🇸 [@swoonhq]

About this Artist: “Swoon (born Caledonia Dance Curry in 1978) specializes in intricate life-size wheatpaste prints and paper cutouts of human figures. She studied at the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn and started doing street art around the late 90’s and gradually got into large-scale installations thereafter. Her delicate wheatpasted cutouts take inspiration from German Expressionist wood block prints and Indonesian shadow puppets, but infuse a uniquely urban sensibility in the way they become part of the streetscape as they decay over time. Her work has shown at Deitch Projects and P.S. 1 Contemporary Art Center in New York, the 2006 Whitney Biennial, and most recently at the Brooklyn Museum.” - @newimageart

Swoon, “Caledonia Curry” (b. 1978, USA)🇺🇸 [@swoonhq]

About this Artist: “Swoon, born Callie Curry, crafts life-size wheatpaste prints and cut-paper portraits that imbue dead urban spaces with fleeting voodoo charms. The street artist, born in Florida and based in Brooklyn, begins by creating realistically rendered portraits, often of women from around the world, delicate as doilies while communicating undeniable resilience. Turning the urban jungle into a democratized public gallery, Swoon plasters her folk-inspired visions on abandoned walls and city streets, allowing her urban goddesses to interact with the various manifestations of movement, shadow and decay that come with the habitat. Over the past 15 years Swoon has transformed New York City into a public performance piece, each of her images fully coming to life only when activated by a new pedestrian passerby. Where the urban meets the ethereal, and tenacity meets fragility, where a biker's shadow can completely transform a cut-paper portrait for only a matter of seconds, this is the world Swoon so generously creates.” - @allouchegallery

AJ Fosik (b. Detroit, MI - USA) 🇺🇸[@ajfosik]

About this Artist: "AJ Fosik is an American artist who creates intricate, vividly colored three-dimensional pieces that reference folk art, taxidermy, and cultural rituals. Using hundreds of pieces of wood and found materials, he creates figurative and intricately designed three-dimensional works. His animal subjects and creatures are built using a complex assemblage of hand cut and varnished wood, painted in bright hues and layered into lattice patterns to create furry or feathered texture. Sharp teeth, claws and eyes emerge when the creatures are complete - some are constructed as freestanding sculptures while others are wall-mounted to a frame, referencing taxidermy practices. AJ Fosik has exhibited his works in numerous galleries throughout the United States, France, and Mexico." - @librarystreetcollective

AJ Fosik (b. Detroit, MI - USA)🇺🇸[@ajfosik]

About this Artist: "Simply put, Fosik’s carvings appeal to the human eye because they embody what is innate and timeless in humanity: representations of the self through animalistic beauty and spiritual iconography. These aspects are mastered in his bold, colorful, hand-carved sculptures that incorporate physical elements used throughout time and across cultures. However, Fosik’s idols are purposefully absent of meaning and religious discourse. Instead, they examine the nature of spiritual iconography, perhaps asking: can we create idols of the everyday, about the everyday, out of the everyday?" - @subliminalprojects

Dan Alva is an artist based in Miami who, whether despite or because of his background in the very type of advertising that he aims to challenge, deliberately changes the messages of recognizable ad campaigns to comment on the excesses of materialism and lifestyle marketing. Using actual billboard fragments, they retain enough of the original design that we clearly see the original message and can contrast it to his alterations.@yngspc

Kenny Scharf (b. 1958, L.A., based in Los Angeles) [@kennyscharf]

My ambition as a professional artist is to maintain the course that I set 30 years ago by establishing my work in the fields of painting, sculpture, and performance. Every project I undertake is building on my past experiences. My original approach is unchanged; it is a personal challenge to produce the best work possible every time. One very important and guiding principle to my work is to reach out beyond the elitist boundaries of fine art and connect to popular culture through my art. My personal ambition has always been to live the example.

Kenny Scharf rose to prominence alongside his friends and contemporaries Jean-Michel Basquiat and Keith Haring in the East Village art scene of the 1980s.  One of the first artists to inject elements of street culture into the main stream of contemporary art, Scharf has continued to pioneer projects like his Cosmic Cavern—a now legendary all-night DayGlo disco party held in the basement of a Brooklyn warehouse from 2009-2010.  His paintings incorporate imagery from advertisements, cartoons and classic Americana into exuberant compositions with an underlying subversive edge.  @kasmingallery

Kenny Scharf (b. 1958, L.A., based in Los Angeles) [@kennyscharf]  Muralist, painter, sculptor, and installation artist Kenny Scharf is best known for his fantastical, large-scale paintings of anthropomorphic animals and imagined creatures, as in Viva Mare Viva Mar (2011). Though Scharf’s brightly colored imagery is generally playful, he has remarked that darker themes exist beneath the surface of his works, visible upon closer inspection. Scharf was a part of the 1980s East Village Art movement, along with his good friend and fellow street artist Keith Haring. The artist says he has been influenced by all 20th-century art movements, including Abstract Expressionism and Pop Art, the latter reflected in his appropriation of cartoon characters from television shows like the Flintstones and Jetsons and his humorous depiction of snack food in Maple Glazed Donut Over Fertile Landscape (2011). Scharf’s oftentimes dense and frenetic compositions also echo a Baroque sensibility. @allouchegallery

The works of artist Michael Vasquez present the viewer with snapshots of urban life from a safe distance. Beneath layers of thick impasto, Vasquez’s expressive brushwork and pools of saturated crimson ebb and flow with the rhythms of hip-hop music, naturalistically rendered and rough around the edges. Vasquez presents his gangster types in viscous paint, personifications of masculine identity and dominance boasting chains that drip with diamonds and flickers of gold teeth. @wdwlls

Vasquez grew up in St. Petersburg, FL, and later received his BFA from New World School of the Arts in Miami. New World had a definite influence on his practice, but it was his experiences growing up in a single-parent household that most shaped his work. “Gangs idealistically embodied the concept of an extended family with its own set of values, all the while projecting a certain level of toughness and masculinity,” Vasquez explains. “These seemed to be the things I was missing, or maybe even unknowingly searching for, in my definitive and naive early years.”@thehundreds

Murakami’s influence on Japan rivals Andy Warhol’s on the United States, and he is known for disseminating and promoting pop art strategies in ways unforeseen by American critics and artists. Unifying many strands of culture that are frequently considered in opposition—traditional Japanese painting with Western influences, the realm of fine art with otaku lifestyle (juvenile culture obsessed with toys, anime, and video games), and commercial retail spaces with museums and other public venues—Murakami’s work is recognized for its ambition, polish, and fine execution.  @thebroadmuseum

TAKASHI MURAKAMI (b.1962, based in Tokyo, Japan) [@takashipom]

A lightning rod of cultural dichotomies, Takashi Murakami believes the artist to be one who perceives and limns the borders between worlds. Combining refined classical painting techniques with a supercharged mix of Pop, animé, and otaku imagery in his distinctive “Superflat” style, Murakami moves freely within an ever-expanding field of aesthetic issues and cultural inspirations. Parallel to the dystopian themes which pervade his work, he recollects and revitalizes traditional narratives of transcendence and enlightenment. Mining religious and secular subjects favored by the so-called Japanese “eccentrics”—non-conformist artists of the Early Modern era widely regarded as counterparts of the Western Romantic tradition—Murakami situates himself within their legacy of bold and lively individualism in a manner that is entirely his own and of his time. @gagosiangallery

Mary Weatherford (b. 1963, Ojai, Ca based in Los Angeles) [@maryweatherford]

Apart from the colorfully gauzy landscapes and skyscapes, perhaps the most striking part of Weatherford’s work since moving from New York back to L.A. is her propensity to lacerate her paintings with neon slashes. @cultured_mag

Mary Weatherford (b. 1963, Ojai, Ca based in Los Angeles) [@maryweatherford]

Profoundly interested in experience, Mary Weatherford makes paintings that evoke a specific time, locale, and temperature. Her recent works, in which the canvases are affixed and sometimes juxtaposed with working neon light, provide an elusive and sometimes radical comment on the legacy of gestural abstraction. Weatherford is noted for her masterful use of overlapping fields of color, and as her work has advanced the increasingly complex and luminous interactions between paint, lighting, and wiring have produced a hybrid form that collapses the distinction between painting and installation. @gagosiangallery

Mary Weatherford (b. 1963, Ojai, Ca based in Los Angeles) [@maryweatherford]  Claiming that her paintings are about mortality, Mary Weatherford turns to the Californian landscape as her muse, translating its bright and moody colors, tangled vegetation, and weathered coastline licked by the changing sea into expressively painted abstract and representational compositions. These scenes serve as vehicles for her explorations of form, space, and color, and as triggers for transcendental experiences and emotions. She works with paint on canvas, occasionally incorporating neon tubing, starfish, and shells into her compositions. As Weatherford describes, Modern movements and artists inspire her metaphysical approach to nature: “The American symbolist movement is deeply rooted in landscape, which is very important to me. I’m interested in Arthur Dove, Marsden Hartley, Charles Burchfield, Agnes Pelton, Georgia O’Keeffe. In all this work there is a compelling centrifugal force distinctive to images that point to the transcendental.” @davidkordanskygallery

Aaron De La Cruz (b.1980, based in San Francisco Ca) [@aarondelacruz]

Aaron De La Cruz presents paintings and sculpture that incorporate patterns and motifs that at their core are very simple, but when gathered together create complex, labyrinthine compositions. His pieces, with bold lines and distinctive use of color, straddle between the practice of painting and design. He reduces his expression into its most minimal form, keeping in mind the surface that he paints on as his patterns seem to flow over and within the walls and canvas. The artist’s marks are more often than not unplanned and instinctual, work that he hopes the viewer will infuse with their own narrative. By combining a minimalist aesthetic and often purposefully minimal materials, he seeks to create affecting work with maximum impact.

Aaron De La Cruz (b.1980, based in San Francisco Ca) [@aarondelacruz]

Sometimes a simple mark etched on a tree is as powerful as a masterpiece in a museum. It is this minimalist nature and his need to create with the least possible amount of mediums that makes Aaron De La Cruz’s work so unique. He constantly battles for perfection with every mark he makes and that often leads to the misperception that it is machine made. To the contrary, his work is a free flow of ideas on surface that streams at a constant pace from his skilled hands. The goal of his work is to make the biggest mark on society with the bare minimum of mediums. A simple mark etched on the world.  @powwowlongbeach

Aaron De La Cruz is artist/designer born in Los Angeles and raised in Fresno, California who is best known for his minimal yet cryptic approach — one which bridges the realms of graffiti and illustration. His work finds strengths in the reduction of his interests in life to minimal information. De La Cruz gains from the idea of exclusion, just because you don’t literally see it doesn’t mean that it’s not there. @wdwlls

With a background in fashion advertising and art theory, with furniture design and publishing thrown in for good measure, Desire Obtain Cherish is actually a he — Jonathan Paul. But it’s also brand, and beyond a brand — fine art blends with street, pop, conceptual and appropriation art with razor’s edge, using contemporary commerce as a model and as as contextual base for the art, it’s manufacturing and its marketing, commenting on social stratification. In an interview at his studio Paul/DOC explains: “I don’t want to be the focus... My work is commenting on society and art systems. It’s my role as an artist to maintain manufacturing habits...I’m not an activist. I just give you what you want.”

Working under the alias Desire Obtain Cherish (D.O.C.), Jonathan Paul emerged as a street artist in the early 2000s. Merging street, pop, conceptual, and appropriation art, D.O.C.’s cast resin sculptures are marked by a subversive edge, satirizing status symbols and revealing a commerce-driven social conscience. A stint at an advertising agency helped D.O.C. understand the psychology of communication and contributed to his marketing-driven ideas and artistic style, which boasts a glossy, modern finish and unexpected juxtapositions. His “Designer Drugs” (2013) series, for example, addresses the concept of a “shopper’s high” by featuring luxury brand logos on pill packets. “Heresy’s Cross” (2013) consists of crucifixes made of melting Hershey’s chocolate bars; the series calls attention to contemporary objects of worship. @unixgallery

D*Face ( London, based in London  uk) [@dface_official]

Drawing inspiration from New York’s pioneering graffiti scene of the 1970s and ’80s, British street artist D*Face has painted walls all over the world with his incisive, Pop-inflected murals that critique the modern world, in particular consumerism and the American Dream. In past works he has appropriated familiar cartoon figures such as Mickey Mouse and Hello Kitty—dissecting them with images like skulls or economic signifiers—and created portraits of icons like Jimi Hendrix and Kurt Cobain. “Thematically my work always draws upon personal experiences, whether that’s the saturation of media in our lives, our fascination with celebrity and stardom or more singular experiences such as the loss of loved ones,” D*Face says. Although he has increasingly shown at galleries, he approaches these sites with the same anarchic energy as his in situ works in public spaces. @dface_official

D*Face is one of the most prolific contemporary urban artists of his generation. Working with a variety of mediums and techniques, he uses a family of dysfunctional characters to satirise and hold to ransom all that falls into their grasp – a welcome jolt of subversion in today’s media-saturated environment.
His aim is to encourage the public not just to ‘see’, but to look at what surrounds them and their lives, reflecting our increasingly bizarre fascination for with celebrity, fame, consumerism and materialism, re-thinking, reworking and subverting imagery drawn from a refuge of decades of materialistic consumption, imagery appropriated from currency, advertising, comic books, these now iconic motifs, cultural figures and genres are subverted to comment upon our conspicuous society.  @stolenspacegallery

Beginning with extended planning and engineering of four to six inch maquettes, the artist works toward a compositional conclusion he deems worth realizing in large scale. Leather hinges allow him to fold canvas-covered panels into spatial forms that mimic both midcentury minimalism and Japanese design, and it is from the 3/4 vantage point that his works may be at their best. Moreland combines his materials with the goal of achieving aesthetic synthesis, while allowing the inherent characteristics of each to remain intact.  @librarystreetcollective

Jordan “Pose" Nickel, (b. 1980 Evanston, Illinois, based in Chicago, Illinois) [@tenderj] 
Jordan Nickel, aka POSE, began making graffiti in 1992. In the years since then, he has expanded his vigorous career to include gallery shows of his mixed-media paintings and works on paper, trips around the world to tag with other graffiti artists, and the cofounding of a creative agency, We Are Supervision, that focuses on large-scale, hand-painted signs and murals. “I’m stoked man, every day is like a freebie right now,” he once said about his career. Inspired by the streets, fellow graffiti artists, cartoons, and pop art, his compositions—whether on a wall or on canvas—burst with bright color, energy, and a pileup of fragmented, overlapping images. Humor meets violence in POSE’s works, which may contain references to crime, cops, and destruction next to images of bananas, melting ice-cream cones, or open sardine tins.

As his work evolves, so do POSE’s methods of encouraging people to let their imaginations run wild. “I get very obsessed with the work that I create. It yanks me out of bed early in the morning and doesn’t let me sleep at night. I get really high from the relationship I get with a body of work.” Seeing more than just the value of the walls in a gallery setting, POSE has added three-dimensional installations to his repertoire. The result is an experiential art environment that the viewer can live and walk through.@romanfineart

Jordan “Pose" Nickel, (b. 1980 Evanston, Illinois, based in Chicago, Illinois) [@tenderj] 
Named “One to Watch” by CNN in 2015, modern pop artist Jordan Nickel (POSE) has been applauded for his inventive ability to take everyday objects and ideas and successfully communicate something deeper. His attempt to make sense of the environment around him started with young rebellion and has matured into a body of work that is a pop blend of illustration, lettering and comic book aesthetics. While his work relies on harnessing very simple human emotions like love, loss and triumph, these feelings are presented in a complex union of vivid colors and a layered application. As of late, Jordan’s newest collection of works offers a radical departure from maximally collaged elements into more direct, pared down imagery, and the result is intriguing - mature, poised, and candid. Having exhibited his works at galleries spanning the globe – including Dubai, London, New York, Detroit and Los Angeles – his diversity as a visual artist is also apparent in grandiose outdoor settings on six different continents. Museums have also taken notice, including the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit and the Museum of Contemporary Art Denver. His aim to promote community engagement and outreach has received press from the likes of The New York Times, BBC News, Vanity Fair and Forbes. @librarystreetcollective

In 2014, Kelly released his first self-published coffee table book titled Tony’s Toys. Kelly chose the self-publishing route to sidestep the constraints of commercial publishing, allowing him to reflect his signature level of extravagance – right down to the hand stitched pages. The book is limited to a release of 900 copies + 100 special edition copies.Described by Blink magazine as “ground breaking for both its innovative layout, dimensions and the scale of the images presented, this limited edition piece cements Kelly’s position as one of the most original and provocative photographers of our time”. @guyhepner

Sarah Morris (b. 1967 Sevenoaks, Kent, Uk  based in New York, NY) [@sarahmorris001] 
Morris began her career making graphic paintings that adapted the dramatic, emotive language used in newspaper and advertising tag lines. Her city-based paintings are executed in household gloss paint on square canvases, employing rigorous, all-over grids that reference architectural motifs, signs or urban vistas. Their vivid colours derive from each city’s unique vocabulary and palette, but, most importantly, its dynamic. In her film work, Morris both seduces and alienates the viewer, employing different kinds of cinematography, from documentary recording to seemingly set-up narrative scenarios.@berggruengallery

Sarah Morris is an internationally recognized painter and filmmaker, known for her complex abstractions, which play with architecture and the psychology of urban environments. Morris views her paintings as parallel to her films - both trace urban, social and bureaucratic topologies. In both these media, she explores the psychology of the contemporary city and its architecturally encoded politics. Morris studied at Brown University where she received a BA in 1989, and at Cambridge. She was a participant in the Whitney Independent Study Program. @petzelgallery

Sarah Morris (b. 1967 Sevenoaks, Kent, Uk  based in New York, NY) [@sarahmorris001]

Titled after Carlos Diegues’ ground-breaking film from the 1970s that encapsulated a key moment in the modernization of contemporary Brazil, the work in this exhibition focused on the country on the eve of another era of dramatic change. Morris describes her paintings and filmmaking – parallel activities within her practice – as a way of investigating, tracing and playing with ‘urban, social and bureaucratic typologies’. In Rio (2012), Morris’ eleventh film, she depicts the multifarious and complex layers of this most contradictory of cities, from its highly orchestrated and eroticized surface image, to the infinite realities of its vast urban sprawl, industrial production and the minutiae of its day-to-day living. Johanna Burton has described Morris’ films as being characterized by a ‘pulsing, nervous, chromatic attention’ and in this film, her camera wanders flaneur-like through Rio’s Ipanema beach, hospitals, iconic modernist architecture, football stadiums, factories and favelas

Victor Solomon (b. 1981 Boston, MA, based in Los Angeles, CA) [@victorsolomon]

He elegantly balances wit, irony and fastidious craftsmanship in exploration of a host of disparate narratives: the religious devotion to sport, the athlete as modern-day king of court, the proletarian drift of basketball from project pick-up games to newfound cultural heights, even a cautionary comment on the fragility of luxury. For Solomon, the medium is the message; having never had worked with stained glass before, he apprenticed for a year under Bay Area glass masters to realize this process-specific concept. The result is a gorgeous and evocative appropriation of basketball iconography, rendered with an athlete’s discipline: Solomon spends over 100 hours on each piece. @joseph_gross_gallery

Victor Solomon (b. 1981 Boston, MA, based in Los Angeles, CA) [@victorsolomon]

From as early as 600 AD, it’s rare materials and exhaustive process have made stained glass a paramount symbol of wealth and power. Throughout the 12th century, stained glass windows adorning monolithic cathedrals flexed on behalf of a manors reign. The irony of the embellishment: removing the window’s intended function. HIs newest series, “Literally Balling” appropriates luxury material and antiquated processes to parallel a history of impractical grandeur. Literally Balling is the result of Solomon’s year-long apprenticeship under the last remaining stained-glass masters and hundreds of hours of fastidious, historically accurate craftsmanship. @guyhepner

Kelly Graval, better known by his graffiti tag RISK, was one of the first artists to exhibit graffiti and street art in galleries. With a background in fine art, Graval has a style defined by cleanly executed lettering paired with graphic imagery and architectural lines. He has participated in a number of street art crews, most famously West Coast Artists (WCA) and the Seventh Letter. In the course of his nearly 30-year career, Graval has become one of the most influential figures for subsequent generations of graffiti artists, particularly in Los Angeles. He is also considered one of the first artists to have painted on freight trains, as well as a pioneer of “painting in the heavens”—a graffiti term referring to highly elevated surfaces like billboards, rooftops, and overpasses. @weinstein.gallery.sf

Melbourne natives Dabs and Myla are a dynamic duo who have lived, worked and soaked in the sun of Los Angeles since 2009. Dabs started painting graffiti in 1995, and began teaching Myla the ropes of writing about ten years later, after they met while studying illustration in art school and fell in love. Soon afterward, they decided they liked their collaborative pieces better than their individual work, and from that point on, they worked together exclusively, as Dabs Myla. Inspired by graffiti, food, travel and their wonderful chaotic life together as a couple, their paintings play Dabs’ mischievous and sometimes ribald characters off Myla’s photorealistic cityscapes. Since their move to California, they have never spent more than a few hours apart. They say, “I guess we are pretty lucky… @thinktankdtla

Jason “Revok” (b. 1977 Riverside Ca, based in Detroit) [@_revok_]

Entirely self-taught, Jason REVOK is known for pushing creative and legislative boundaries that began in the street. Murals and assemblages of urban decay have evolved as the artist has moved from alley to studio; arguably, he has done more to bring spray paint to minimalist art than any before. He relies on self-made tools for a number of processes that have consumed him like no other: “I’ve never been so committed to an idea,” he says, “and I feel like there are infinite possibilities”. One such invention is an apparatus that holds 8 cans of paint and allows them to spray simultaneously, marking a system of lines that move in synergy for an imperfect pattern that could never be created by hand. The artist introduces gestural glitches in latex and spray that disrupt the type of exacting patterns seen at the height of 60s minimalism, reminding us that there is always a human being behind the work. @librarystreetcollective

The artist introduces gestural glitches in latex and spray that disrupt the type of exacting patterns seen at the height of 60s minimalism, reminding us that there is always a human being behind the work. @librarystreetcollective •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• •••••••••• Help us share your art with the world and repost us 🌏 •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Please tag #buffedmag  and follow us @buffedmag 👈🏼 for a chance to be featured
Jason “Revok” (b. 1977 Riverside Ca, based in Detroit) [@_revok_]

Los Angeles-based artist Revok first became interested in art through his father’s collection of 60s and 70s album covers and comic books, as well as the skateboarding and graffiti scenes. For over two decades, Revok has continually pushed the boundaries—both creative and legislative—of street art, producing vibrant works that meld structured with dynamic colors and forms. A completely self-taught artist, Revok finds freedom in his naiveté. After years of a decidedly anti-institutional practice, Revok began making studio work, finding inspiration in his ability to refine the techniques he mastered as a street artist. His ultimate goal is to be constantly maturing and evolving as an artist, never confined by any one way of making work. @ruttkowski68

Piet Parra (b. 1976 Netherlands, based in Amsterdam) [@pietparra] 
Characterized by curvaceous line work and bold, complementary color palettes, Parra’s work in fine art over the past decade has evolved into an expression that is distinctly his. Evoking influences of Roy Lichtenstein and Tom Wesselmann in their bold, poppy graphics, Parra’s work is inspired by his everyday surroundings, popular culture, and his love of music. For each body of work, the thematic undertones to Parra’s art develop later in the creative process, with the formal compositions dictating the direction of each series. The artist elaborates, “I collect images in my head from what I see around me in the times I’m not painting, and then scribble them down with pencil… the theme plays a big part but I focus mainly on the composition, and that it will be a painting that is interesting to look at.” As the title of the exhibition suggests, the subject matter for No Work Today playfully explores simple leisurely pleasures from staying in bed and reading a book, to reclining poolside. @joshualinergallery

Piet Parra (b. 1976 Netherlands, based in Amsterdam) [@pietparra] 
Dutch illustrator, painter, and animator Parra produces vibrant, post-Pop imagery populated by hybrid figures with elongated beak-like noses and the artist’s unique typography. Parra began his career drawing flyers and posters for music venues, later employing his eccentric, hand-drawn approach to illustration and design in fine art works. Recent works such as Holding a Stick (2012) and Game (2012) depict curvaceous nudes with Parra’s signature bird-like heads engaged in provocative situations and rendered in bold, saturated blues and reds. Parra’s images have been compared to those of Keith Haring and Victor Moscoso. @artsy

Jen Stark (b. 1983 –L.A based, USA) [@jenstark] 
Jen Stark creates mesmerizing, intricate paper sculptures and wall pieces, as well as drawings, installations, murals, and animations, in rainbow explosions of color. Her work resembles natural phenomena such as tree rings, vortexes, and clusters of microorganisms, and the compositions call to mind psychedelic visions and op art illusions. “I love thinking about how enormous shapes out in the universe can have the same patterns as tiny microorganisms under a microscope. How geometric shapes and certain spiraling patterns apply to designs in nature big and small,” she has said. Stark is best known for her cut-paper pieces, which she crafts out of countless sheets of construction paper.-@artsy •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• ••••••••••

Seaty (b. 1983 –France) [@seaty_art]

Starting in 2008, with his experience of graffiti in the open air, he chose to give a new direction to his work. Entirely self-taught, it is as a rider alone that he passes from the wall to the canvas with the greatest talent. From wall to canvas, his work evolves more precisely, while preserving the codes of urban culture. In 2012, he decided to live off his passion and devoted himself entirely to his art. Over time, multiplying exhibitions, he was able to develop a style peculiar to him, his painting reveals a style asserted, posed on different supports, has no field of predilection. Inspired by his emotions and his experience, Seaty wants to share with the general public his vision of urban art, which is very rich. Coming from the urban culture, where he draws his inspiration, his paintings unveil a painting full of emotions without limit. Today, after more than 15 years of artistic career and practice of street art, he continues to represent with as much passion and audacity his movement. @seaty_art

Born in 1983, Seaty is a French artist. His personal quest for identity and his thirst for freedom led him, at the end of the 90s, to the discovery of the hip-hop movement. This cultural, musical and artistic movement brought him to discover graffiti tag  Art, which became his main interest. He began his first tags in the street and appropriates walls from his youngest age, where he realized his first “wild creations”.@lesgaleriesbartoux
