Meet the Artists

Bowman700_02

Bowman

Drawing inspiration from icons of our time, Bowman’s work provides personality to contemporary pop culture. He boldly explores the humour in today’s society and it’s over-saturation with idolization, the media, and consumerism. The recycled, retro feel of Bowman’s work comes from his use of discarded, common-place items – old mirrors, windows, door and a variety of other surfaces – as his canvas. New School Lounge Pop for all those Old School kids out there.

Doty700-700x700

Brent Andrew Doty

Throughout my life and artistic explorations I have always been fascinated with Pop Culture, Celebrities, and their ability to both inspire and repulse the masses simultaneously. By replacing the brushstroke with images I was able to construct large works of art out of juxtaposed, biographical, and otherwise symbolic imagery. The repetition in Serialism mimics our own mass consumer culture and also gives me the ability to convey a visual narrative within each piece.

Curator
(Bo-Man-Eye-Tis) – Adding Personality to Pop Culture since 1998.
I grew up like most kids of the 80’s: with Star Wars and acid washed jeans. Comic books and Sci Fi movies had a big influence on me. My choice in materials is fueled heavily by my schooling and experience in animation as I treat all my glass canvases as an animation cell by drawing on one side of the pane and using the other for colours and backgrounds. I also incorporate old window frames and table tops to give my work a retro, organic, lived-in feel. New School Lounge Pop.

I live and breathe the web. A passionate online geek, I’ve always had an entrepreneurial spirit from launching successful web development and hosting start-ups such as Nerd North Media to social media networks and blogs like GeekPr0n. Nerd North was Joey’s answer to bringing all his loves under one roof – a media company that brings people together through music, entertainment, web and events.
