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.
My newest work draws upon the underlying beauty of urban decay. I get inspired when I see things like weathered signs stuck on abandoned buildings, advertisements layered on subway platforms, and graffiti in dive bar bathrooms.
With my artwork, I attempt to tell stories through fragmented visual clues. These stories and their subjects are rarely given in their entirety but offer viewers an incomplete narrative through which their own conclusions can be drawn. The layers, although torn, ripped and sometimes almost unintelligible, help to convey a message. That is a message of reliance, of defiance and sometimes, even a message of hope.

Jason Ackerman (@jasonackerman)
I have been a professional tattoo artist for a number of years and have been feeling a compulsion to explore a new means of self-expression. By the first few strokes, I found that painting was the missing key that would free my creativity. This quickly grew into an insatiable desire to create exclusively with acrylic and canvas. By juxtaposing notable historical and religious figures in my paintings, I am leaving the viewer with an uncomfortable image to pick apart individually. I find it fascinating to see the reaction and how it varies from person to person. The paintings typically evoke a feeling of shock and confusion. The plastic appearance of my cha
