Adrian Kay Wong (@adrianadrianwong)
Adrian Kay Wong’s paintings explore the interactions between negative space and figure, segmenting his surfaces with shapes that are collectively representational, but independently function as abstract forms. Wong exacts an extreme flatness that forces ground and figure on more equal planes.
The paintings are distinctively personal through the portrayal of narratives that are often sourced from his own adolescence. By investigating these sentimentalities with a deliberate and measured simplicity, Wong attempts to glorify the ordinary and reimagine the everyday.

Otha "Vakseen" Davis III (@vakseen)
While working on hit records in the music industry has played a driving force in his career, it’s Vakseen’s (born Otha Davis III) passion for the arts that has served as his key to sanity in the fast paced entertainment business. The self-taught, Floridian has developed a distinct collage-influenced painting style (Vanity Pop) that fuses elements of cubism, photorealism, fashion design and pop surrealism into vibrantly alluring, abstract portraits. While most viewers assume they’re viewing collage or mixed media art, each creation is in fact meticulously hand painted directly on canvas. Drawing distinct inspiration from our fascination with popular culture,

Nikkolos Mohammed (@nikkmohammed)
Nikkolos Mohammed is an artist working and living in Los Angeles. Since childhood, he was introduced to the art of collections through thrifting by his father. His collections range from prints to shoes, to sports jerseys and even tuxedo shirts from the seventies. Another facet of collecting, was “people gazing”, and learning how to observe identities through body language and clothing as a symbol of ideals. Over time, Nikkolos realized that some of his collections were also immaterial such as ideas and memories, which inspired his approach to art.
Minas Halaj (@minashalaj)
" The concept of beauty is a burdened one. We are living in a society that fears its adoration in contemporary art, yet intimidates its women into accepting it as their highest value. We have degraded it in mass media and the celebrity yet revere it above all other qualities of life. Beauty is a double edged sword an instrument of seduction and inaccessibility burdened sword an overwhelming distrust in the simple sensation of pleasures. Minas Halaj

All of my spare time was dedicated to painting, it was only natural that I pursued a career that would allow me to further explore my creative aptitudes. The study of graphic design, advertising and sociology.
James Porschen (@jporschen)
James Porschen’s work abstracts reality, transcending the literal and focusing on the underlying essence of nature, letting it’s sublime reflection emerge. Using references from Color-field theory Porschen's large scale images attempt to convey a sense of reverence for the natural world to establish a reconciliation in direct response to the divisive milieu currently seen in contemporary culture. In order to establish a common link in which past, present and future are blurred the landscapes remain void of notions that deal directly with time and space. With the loss of narrative associations, these images may then serve as vessels for contemplation.
