Richard Lapham- I have a passion for psychology, and I focus my work on understanding human nature and our consciousness. I’ve explored how we perceive and internalize visual information in the past, and I am currently interested in Jung’s collective unconsciousness, specifically the idea of archetypes. Using myself as a tool of exploring the unconscious, I visually document how my mind shapes and realizes familiar archetypes in a mash of mixed media. This process usually takes me through cycles of building up a space/subject and breaking it down again. The closest I’ve come to understanding my own unconsciousness is in the moments of ambiguity between a recognizable subject and total abstraction.

Henrik Aarrestad Uldalen (1986) “is a self-taught artist whose creative production revolves around classic figurative painting, presented in a contemporary manner. Henrik explores the dark sides of life, nihilism, existentialism, longing and loneliness, juxtaposed with fragile beauty. The atmosphere in his subject matter is often presented in a dream or limbo-like state, with elements of surrealism. His focus on atmospheres rather than narratives and realism leaves his painting open for many interpretations.”
Erik Jones ”Was born in 1982 in a sunny beach community in St. Petersburg Florida.
He received a bachelor’s degree from Ringling College of Art and Design in 2007.
Out of college, Working primarily in cover illustration, Erik toured the US, showing
at different pop culture and art conventions. He gradually made his way to
Brooklyn, New York in 2009, where he now resides.Erik’s work is vibrant and colorful, expressing a heightened sense of realism, captured
in his female subjects, juxtaposed with sporadic mark making and nonrepresentational
forms that could be said to mimic geometric high-end fashion. This effect is achieved by
using multiple mediums such as watercolor, colored pencil, acrylic, water-soluble wax pastel and water-soluble oil on paper mounted to board.”

Conrad Roset “Spent the first part of his 29 years in Terrassa, his native city, among boxes of crayons, felt-tip pens and notebooks; the other part in Barcelona, surrounded by paints, moleskine notebooks, muses, colored pencils, and in the company of his gray cat. Drawing has been his passion and a constant feature in his life, since he played with his brother at drawing everything they liked until, years later, he draw inspiration from women to create the Muses, his most personal collection. “I search the beauty the body exudes, I like drawing the female figure.”
He received his education at the Joso School and at the Faculty of Fine Arts in Barcelona. Thanks to the spreading of his illustrations through the Internet, he started working for Zara. There, he says, he learnt about his trade, about regularity, and how to study styles of reference illustrators. A year later, he launched himself as a freelance artist, and since then he works for different brands, advertising agencies, and publishing companies.
He has exhibited his work in galleries and museums, such as the MOMA in Virginia, Spoke Art in San Francisco, London Miles in London, Tipos Infames in Madrid, and Artevistas and Miscelanea in Barcelona. Besides, he is a professor of illustration at the School of Design BAU.”

Emanuel De Sousa-“Working with acrylic was not a choice but a health issue at the beginning – at the age of 19, Emanuel de Sousa developed a severe allergy to the chemicals in oil paint and diluents, having to give up this medium and switch to acrylics. This became a blessing in disguise, allowing him to explore a medium less used in human figure painting.
Adaptation was almost instinctive, developing and manipulating acrylics until technique was perfected.
Acrylic and charcoal on canvas were, and are, the perfect medium for developing the fundamentals of painting and drawing; with its seductive characteristics, fluidity, thickness, rapid drying and bold graphics, acrylic and charcoal allowed a very swift and decisive build up on canvas, with both a subtle or blunt intent that help convey an energy and pragmatic attitude to both the composition and painting.”

Alex Yanes- “Sometimes the only way to veer off a path of self-destruction is to set out on a road of creation and self-discovery. When I was at my darkest point, it was my art that planted a seed of hope and allowed me to see all the color in the world. As an artist, creating different pieces of art is the one thing I have complete control over and the one thing that lets me give back. My love of art began at a very young age when I discovered I loved to build things and draw cartoons. Because I was the only one of my friends who could draw, it gave me a sense of individuality and purpose. Using reclaimed wood, I even built a treehouse and skate ramps, which taught me how to take something and make it new again. Despite all the warnings from people who told me that I would never make it as an artist because all artist starve, I have made it, and making art for a living is the one thing that I cherish above all others. My hope is that my art and my style convey that lighthearted freedom I encountered as a youth and that my work inspires people to overcome their own adversities.”
