Leegan

Leegan began drawing and painting at a young age by himself. He grew up moving from one metropolitan city to another - Baltimore, Philadelphia, and New York City; and cultural diversity and experience of dynamic urban life became the major source of his artistic inspiration, along with jazz, hip-hop, and graffiti.

In 2011, Leegan began to focus on painting cityscapes - a visual manifestation of memories and emotions attached to certain places - and experimented with various styles of realism and surrealism. In 2013, he moved to San Francisco to attend Academy of Art University where he received his first formal art education. In 2014, Leegan moved to Los Angeles and joined Leftbank Art, a corporation that specializes in producing and printing artworks for clients such as Crate and Barrel, Pottery Barn, Z Gallery.

He currently lives and works as a freelance artist and art instructor in Los Angeles.

Ashley Gallagher

A child of rock n' roll and pop culture, Ashley Gallagher places her focus on the quirky images created in her mind and the real life situations in the world around her. With her friends as models, she uses photography to capture the perfect scene to use as a reference. This process is integral as this collaboration provides her with moments to draw more inspiration and to gain a special insight into her overall focus of the piece.

Pop culture, music, friends and even strangers on the street serve as a main influence for her to create images that evoke humor and nostalgia. Using fantastic and vibrant oil paint reminiscent of her native San Diego, she creates a bold and electric tableau. Ashley received a Bachelor's degree in Studio Arts with an emphasis on painting and printmaking in 2007 from San Diego State University. Her work has been displayed in galleries in San Diego and Los Angeles and New York.

Will Gibson

I am old enough to have had my first experiences with photography at a time when black and white imagery was still a dominant form. Ansel Adams, the Westons and others were at the peak of their careers and Life and The Saturday Evening Post magazines were touchstones for the cultural life of the country. Once I started printing my own work in 1968, I was hooked. I have ever since been fascinated with the possibilities inherent in a medium that deals with time, light, shape and form. It allows me a way to see in new and different ways. It has always been a way for me to make sense of the world, and to focus on things and ideas of substance.

Victor Roman

Victor Roman's passion for expressing himself through art motivates him to sketch and paint whenever he can. Sometimes, you can find him sketching people on the train or in a casino but on most days, you will find him painting in his studio until the early hours of the morning. Painting in the night after work, shows dedication and after 3 years of study at Palomar College, Victor's talent has grown exponentially.

The emotions that his art evoke have developed in complexity and because of this, the viewer must think twice about what they are looking at to figure out their own interpretation of his art. Art pieces include depictions of artillery, child soldiers and portraits of mankind in various states of mind.

The art is masterfully painted on wood, a feat accomplished by few artists. As this artist's girlfriend and in my experiences as his peer in art classes, I've witnessed Victor draw from life with swift and graceful movements. I have also seen him make a gun drawn on a piece of paper exciting and to witness this phenomenon for yourself just stop by Studio #5. He will be happy to turn up the bass for you on his sound system or play a timeless record on our record player.

Julie Arroyo

"My love of art began in Philadelphia when my folks enrolled me in a summer class at the age of 6. We werebeing taught about oil pastels that year. I remember feeling very inadequate (big word for a 6 year old, huh?) since I was so young and inexperienced, but I absolutely loved playing with the pastels. I went into my own world, ignoring what the teacher was showing us, and just made picture after picture until my parents picked me up at the end of class.."

Martita

Art has always been part of who I am. I have been creating ever since I can remember. From coloring within the lines as a child to beyond the lines as a grown up. I am free and bound at the same time as an artist. I do not take it lightly to say that I am creative being, we all are. I just am so compelled to create with my hands. I have much to share from within. I move about within my mediums and they are jewelry, painting, and photographing.

sally reis vogt

German born architect Mies van der Rohe once said "God is in the details." As a photographer and designer, I am in constant search of those visual moments and details which, for me, give meaning and excitement to the everyday world.

Seeing, rather than photographing, is my passion and I enjoy these moments with or without a camera. I make these observations whether sitting in a room, riding in a car or exploring the great outdoors. I do it consciously and unconsciously. My greatest joy comes from the visual stimulation which exists as much in the mundane as in the grand. It is in the nuances of light, pattern, color, gesture, proportion, form and expression that I find my entertainment. The camera is merely a tool to record and share these moments with others.

Daniel Nougier

Having squandered the first 40 years of my career life as an engineer, I am pleased to now have the opportunity to devote my time to the challenges of photography. While I've also been photographing for over 40 years, I feel there is always more to learn. I embrace the endless creative controls offered by the modern digital darkroom.

However I also enjoy the satisfaction derived from producing a quality platinum/palladium print. My goal is to present photographs with a unique point of view that will allow the viewer to experience the scene as I experienced it. Not necessarily how it looked, but rather how it felt. One of my favorite quotes by Ansel Adams is "There are two people in every photograph: the photographer and the viewer." Creating an image that can equally engage both the photographer and the viewer is the true magic of photography.

Christina Preiss

The primary aim of my miniature photography is to have the viewer stop, engage in the present moment and laugh. The present moment is all we really have, but people are often lost in past memories or future anxieties. However, seeing tiny people actively participating in our "super-sized" world, makes the viewer stop and take a second look. The image plays with their perception.

A lot of my miniature photography doesn't have intense or deep meaning. I enjoy seeing life in a humorous way and being playful with my work. However, some of my beliefs and passions are naturally revealed through my images.

Matthew Land

Matthew Land blends aspects of abstract expressionism, surrealism, folk, pop, and realism into paintings that create a certain mood or atmosphere to be determined by the viewer. Tangible textures take on a 2D feel as painted images exist in 3 dimensions in the foreground and background. Blends are achieved through the removal of paint as well as the addition of paint giving each piece an antiqued charm. Matthew studied under Northern California artist Myron Stephens for 4 years and has exhibited work at various galleries including Art Hatch, Thumbprint Gallery, Voz Alta, Molotov Gallery, Park Gallery, Alexander Salazar Fine Art (resident artist June 2012- September 2013) Smoking Mirrors Gallery, The Spot Barrio Logan, Roots Factory, GCS Santa Ana, and Shiny Nickel Art Gallery.

Matthew has done commercial artwork for clothing companies such as Volcom Stone, Hurley, Mada Inc, and Reign Apparel. Regarding his current body of work, Matthew has explained the concept as, "...paintings depicting the metaphorical walls that we as humans put up between ourselves and society to protect us, or reinforce beliefs handed down to us through the years?and the tools that can be used to destroy those walls."

Matthew Land is a Sacramento native, Santa Cruz transplant, currently residing in North Park, San Diego.

I'm a Christian artist with a contradictive dark style and street art roots who has worked with acrylic, models, one-shot, automotive and house paint, oil pastels, Prismas, plastercast, computer parts, recycled material, clay, leather, vinyl, wire, cloth, oil, spray paint, clothing, hats, paint markers, sharpies, paper-mache, masks, bracelets, stencils, pen, and black-book drawings. Using almost anything for a canvas inspired by everything I see.

When it comes to art I find myself emulating other artists works, applying my own style and also doing complete originals.

Jennifer Anichowski

My paintings would best be described as dreamscapes, images from reality in an un-real situation or environment. Like a stand mirror that is growing roots into dry desert ground or a widow to daylight in a night sky. My paintings are unique, though my style is influenced by artists like Salvador Dali and Michael Parks. I choose to use mostly oil paints because of their ability to have a depth and saturation of color that I feel captures my subjects the best. I love having the ability to work with colors that I can continually manipulate until I feel they are right. My artworks express...

Aja Kusick

Aja Kusick is a fine artist residing in Scotia, NY. She attended Montserrat College of Art in Beverly, MA with a concentration in painting from 2001-2003.

Aja's work focuses primarily on the female figure and how she reacts with her surroundings. The current body of work utilizes mixed media such as acrylic, ink, enamel, spray paint, and even glitter encased in resin on cradled wooden panels. Several layers of materials are built up over the course of the creation of the painting, melding background, foreground, and figure together in a visceral swirl of color. Texture has always been a prominent quality in her work, and this new body of work continues to explore the push and pull between subject and medium. Emphasis on movement is heightened by the application of paint directly to wet resin, wherein the materials themselves become collaborators in each finished piece.
