Artist Joey DeRuy (@joeyderuy)
Raised in both Montana and Kenya, self-taught painter Joey DeRuy has forged a specific, line-driven, figurative style all his own. His work combines the playfulness of late 20th Century street art with the geometric, African-inspired abstraction of Cubism, often with witty references to pop culture and geographic places.

I use abstracted organic shapes positioned within traditional graphic arts grid systems to recreate the tones of the situations and environments I want to remember.

charlie bonallack (@ellocharliebquiet)
With the ubiquitous digital image taking centre stage and the decline of the printed photograph, Charlie (a british artist based in Montpellier, France) presents the printed photograph as a thin receipt or a fossil…a half truth, a trace, possibly a clue to the past.
“I never liked photography,” Robert Mapplethorpe is quoted as saying, “Not for the sake of photography. I like the object. I like the photographs when you hold them in your hand.”
