The artist differ in medium and composition, but are brought together by their unifying element of mixing mediums, street art aesthetics and thought provoking imagery. Coli uses layers of hand cut stencils to paint photorealistic images; often focusing on portraits. Typically his paintings are done in a grey scale with colors popping in the background. Donkeeboy has recently focused more on pop culture – past and present. Using house paint, paint markers and other mediums, he puts his own unique spin on famous icons, creating works of art which tend to consist of various double entendre and visual puns. Anaïs Alessandra is a self taught painter, musician, and native Los Angeleno born and bred in the streets of Los Angeles. The emotions evoked through the music scene along with the bold, unapologetic attitude of the city are reflected in the vibrant colors and the undisguised sentiment each painting displays. She is of the belief that one has to be a little crazy to remain sane, and exhibits her vulnerability through the use of acrylic, oil, spray and enamel paints, though often using unconventional mediums such as coffee and lipstick, which along with the conventional brush, is often applied with paper towels, peacock feathers, her hands, or her vintage Chanel dress. Blake Byers is from Idyllwild, CA currently working in San Diego, which he now calls home. He’s involved with the practice of deconstructed portraits using Condensed Polystyrene Sheeting and Latex, Oil, Aerosol, and Acrylic paints.
