Bowman Featured

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 its 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.

Hydro74

Hydro74

100% Motherfucker. Hydro74 is a Orlando based designer, otherwise known as Joshua M. Smith. The soul purpose of my career is to push the boundries in doing what I feel is relevant to the market as well as extract various elements and trends to be able to offer them up in my own personal work. But let’s be honest. I do what I love because I love it. Not because I have to do it, nor am forced to do it, but rather passionate about doing what I do. I firmly believe in having set style tones, yet a sense of diversity to make any various project unique to the demands that are set forth.

Alex Garant

Alex Garant

Queen of Double Eyes, Alex Garant studied visual arts at Notre-Dame–De-Foy College just outside Quebec City. After graduating in 2001, she ultimately settled in Toronto, Canada. Her alla prima oil paintings offer a graphic quality combined with traditional portrait techniques. Garant  uses patterns, duplication of elements,  symmetry and image superposition as key elements of her imagery. Alex Garant’s paintings are not far from a perfect optical illusion: her protagonists trying to escape themselves, almost possessed by a distinct version of their own individuality, an exorcism of the soul.

James Gardner

James Gardner

There has always been a strong internal drive or compulsion to create images. My art practice is borne from a steady diet of cartoons, comics, music and other low brow sentiments. Figures/forms as contemporary iconography distilled through a pop-cultural lens. Ink, aerosol, and acrylic paint is used to create abstract, ephemeral spaces where figures float ungrounded. Creation of places where form, line, colour, pattern and melancholy collide. Robots are used primarily as a symbol of mankinds’ folly and fears, manifested in mechanical form.

Gnarled Branch

The Gnarled Branch

The idea behind the Gnarled Branch first evolved in 2004 when David Irvine noticed a wooden table that was discarded in the trash. He repaired it, refinished it and it became a beautiful painted piece of functional art. The positive reaction to it from friends and family paved the way for Dave to expand from traditional art formats (i.e. canvas, paper, board etc) into making furniture art.

Dan Springer

Dan Springer

Hailing from the cold shores of Lake Ontario, Toronto artist SKULLUXE (Dan Springer) paints, draws, builds and creates things to make him and his friends laugh and the ladies swoon.

Working mainly with acrylics and wood panels, Dan’s main focus is to simplify and beautify in a basic visual way. Big bold lines and imagery make the eyes pop and the brain whirl.

Tim Shankweiler

Tim Shankweiler

Tim was born and raised in Allentown Pennsylvania. Home of Yocco’s, “the Hot Dog King”, and the Liberty Bell Replica Museum. By the time he was 15 all of the factories had indeed “closed down” (please excuse the Billy Joel reference) . As such, he was forced into life as a carney, drawing caricatures at Dorney Park and Wild Water Kingdom, where his mediocre talent and charm made many a tween girl cry, and incited numerous threats of violence. Tim also tries to pretend he’s a real artist from time to time hoodwinking some less-discerning galleries to occasionally hang, what he adore-ably claims, are “paintings”. He is currently the Assistant Director of the pre school show Bubble Guppies for Nickelodeon, lives in Jersey City with his wife and 2 sons, and is now only threatened with physical violence for mediocre artwork periodically.
