Emit - has been around, painting and switching up styles, since the late 80’s. He pioneered the DF crew with fellow artist Sub not long after, and has garnered a tremendous amount of attention, both individually and collaboratively, over the last few decades for his vibrant large-scale works and productions, and his trademark clean, textbook, metropolitan b-boy style; always legible, always packed to the brim with texture and detail.
Tuke One - I’ve worked on all kinds of projects from logo design, silk screen designs, commercial signage, all the way up to large scale fine art murals and pretty much everything in between. I can only hope that my art brings the kind of joy to people that I have experienced as the result of other people’s work over the years. There is something inherently beautiful about continuing to test the boundaries of your capabilities and that is the driving force behind my passion for creating.
Keith Jive - His prolific pieces are found in countless graffiti magazines around the world, national street art festivals and legal walls. His exposure is wide-spread, exhibiting graffiti canvases and paintings in group and solo fine art shows throughout the United States.
Mike Graves - is a multi-disciplinary artist focusing on a large range of mediums, including paintings, illustrations, murals and art figures. The ability to create and share art with people makes him truly happy. Mike’s goal is to paint whimsical, bright character-based work that brings people joy and helps them feel like a child again. His art has been seen in Hawaii, Las Vegas, San Francisco, Phoenix, Miami, Chicago, Denver, Houston, LA, New York, Canada, and Australia.
Topher Straus - My work is a deconstruction of reality that is layered with radical color combinations and bold texture. My style is unconventional, drawing on couches and painting on metal. My work is fun, fearless and full of rhythm.
Art by 13 - is an exploratory project that is ever evolving and branching out to new territories as time unfolds. The work is intended to be seen and enjoyed by anyone and everyone regardless of social class, race, gender, or age in an effort to convey a universal message to be seen and heard. Although we are each unique individuals there is the idea that we are all tied to the collective, and as such share a collective understanding
