Zacaffeine is best known for her expressive oil paintings of boats and urban landscapes in abstract forms that capture feelings of the environment. Her work is not as much about the boats, but what the surrounding landscape is trying to communicate to the viewer. The boats are as figures captured by the artist in gestures with the environment capturing the place and mood. Companionship, isolation, anger and serenity are common themes in her work. The artist’s personal technique with oil uses only palette knives and various other tools, but no brushes. Largely influenced by artist Kim Cogan and teacher/mentor Mark Kang O’Higgins from Gage Academy in Seatt

I derive my figurative work from the most pregnant moments, the kind that oscillate between ordinary and extraordinary, and embody sensations as well as instill them. Just as there is an instant between reception of sensation and comprehension of its meaning, a held breath, there is a moment in a work’s development that teeters in between becoming and being. This threshold moment, a resonating tension, drowns out a logical pedigree as well as a point of documented arrival. Instead it may only be self explanatory by its penetrating effect: felt of the body.

Nick Santos Banuelos was born in a small town known more for its agricultural exports than for any artistic scene. The town was dated and home life wasn't the greatest Nick's solace came from rummaging through his uncles old sketch books and trips with his aunts into the "big city" Los Angeles. Seeing murals and graffiti throughout the city in the backseat of an SUV, with music rumbling through the trunk resonated with nicks visions of another world created with the simplest tools ; a pencil and paper.
Nicks goal is to be the influencer giving people a vision of another world and to also pay homage to the voices that where the score to his dreams.

"I am in constant pursuit to discover the alternative realities beyond the primitive perceptions of our existence. It is a search to know and to feel the impenetrable that is manifested through the beauty that is found in the asymmetrical, the grotesque and the true religiosity of the uneven in our human condition. My work tries to connect with the other-wordly, tries to attain insights into mysteries that transcend our human awareness as by direct communication with our intuition."

Once people slow down, they'll realize I'm just like them.

This body furthers an exploration into the phenomenology of abstraction. These images concentrate specifically on color field theory, focusing on the interplay of lines and colors to create emotional responses. The neon tubes help further the work from its original geographic location. This enables the viewer a subjective interpretation rather than the dismantling of the image objectively. The images are not intended to reflect the location they were taken but rather the inner destination one creates while viewing them. With the loss of narrative associations, these images may then serve as vessels for contemplation.
