Featured Artist: KOFIE:: Los Angeles

Draftsmanship is definitely an aesthetic I strive for overall. I did not study architecture nor any form of industrial design past my high school education, so my involvement in that form of design has been a curiosity & personal study. The focus of my work is centered on an affinity to architectonic aspects, the ideology of building from the ground up, and the line-work involved in the development process. The sketches, the blueprints, the t-square, all these things I collect for my own interest and admiration. My Pops passed down a drafting table in 98, from that point on vintage paperwork & publications on drafting found it’s way to me and on my desk. It found me.

Featured Artist: PROBLAK:: Boston

The concept that a picture is worth an infinite amount of words inspired Problak (Rob Gibbs) and provided him with the opportunity to take ownership of one of our cultures' most modern hieroglyphics: graffiti. He developed a vision of beautifying the ghettos of Boston, MA purely by instinct, experiencing his "calling" at a young age. A child of the Hip-Hop golden age, this culture became a personal creed for Problak, who chose the "unspoken heard" as a communication tool within his city. With an extensive repertoire in several media, Problak's work has challenged both the viewer and himself the artist, to see and celebrate graffiti's evolution for over 15 years. His work as a solo artist and as a member of Boston's A.L.A. crew, has been seen across the world.

Problak has demonstrated a continued commitment to passing on the tools, techniques and traditions he has learned to the next generation of artists, serving as both mentor and inspiration to countless young people through his work as a co-founder and studio manager at Artists for Humanity. The need to place social consciousness in Hip-Hop culture is a driving force behind Problak's creativity. His work impacts the viewer to allow imagination to become a playground for testing boundaries and breaking rules.

Featured Artist: KWEST:: Boston

In my work I convey a variety of socially relevant themes commenting on urban life, and political and cultural events. As a visual artist, I have never received formal training, but began drawing and painting out of pure passion and interest. I draw on my development as a graffiti artist, but cover a far reaching range of topics. Motivated by themes such as love, oppression, freedom, cultural heritage, and history, I create work that typically includes the human form, yet moves well beyond portraiture. A series of acrylic paintings portray a fusion of female subjects and stylized landscapes, which calls attention the connection to humans and nature. I magnify urban issues with cityscapes and street scenes, conveying both a subtle documentation of everyday life, as well as negative media portrayal. I work as a freelance artist, doing live painting at community events, creating murals for youth programs and schools, and creating several series of paintings for exhibition. I hope to continue to elevate, improvise, educate, and process the gamut of my experiences while enhancing my skills as an artist to uplift others.

Featured Artist: MASSIEL GRULLON:: Boston

I paint portraits. Mainly famous people, friends, family, or myself. I do portraits because I like to capture the person's expression. My style and technique or art have a gist of graphics and surrealism, but leans more toward the realism style. I really like getting into detail. Sometimes i like to trick the viewers who are observing my pieces because some of the work I do looks like silkscreen prints- but it's not. Everything is done with a paint brush, acrylic paint, and a wooden board. I like to use bold or soft colors and black/white for a contrast graphic look.
