"For the last 20 years, South Korean artist Me Kyeoung Lee has traveled around her home country, armed with acrylic inks and a penchant for painting quaint little convenience stores. Throughout her childhood, Lee recalls frequenting these charming corner stores that are now becoming few and far between in modern-day South Korea. In each painting, she captures every little detail, highlighting each store’s idyllic features, its traditional signage, and miscellaneous bric-à-brac."
"Jahnkoy" means "new spirit village" on Crimean. Jahnkoy’s work is a decisive return to craft, meaning the very hands that create and define cultures.

Maria is a graduate from Parsons School of Design with a MFA in Fashion Design & Society, also holds a BFA in Fashion Design from the British Higher school of Art & Design, Moscow and a Graduate Diploma in Fashion from Central Saint Martins, London.

Also Kazakova was able to secure a collaboration with Puma and resources from Swarovski for her debut collection, quilting second-hand sports t-shirts with embellished fabrics that swaddled the wearer."

"In 2012, Oregon-based sculptor Chris Antemann was invited to participate in artCAMPUS®, the art studio program of Germany’s renowned MEISSEN® Porcelain Manufactory. The program enabled Antemann to collaborate with Meissen’s master artisans on unique pieces and a series of limited-edition sculptures, resulting in a grand installation that reinvents and invigorates the great porcelain figurative tradition."
"Using the Garden of Eden as her metaphor, Antemann created a contemporary celebration of the 18th-century banqueting craze. Inspired by Meissen’s great historical model of Johann Joachim Kändler’s monumental Love Temple (1750), the artist sculpted her own 5-foot version."

With an ever growing audience, Dmitri Bishop leaves a sense of wonder and mystery with his magical work."

Typoe (Michael Andrew Gran) is a multidisciplinary artist whose practice plays upon the constant tension between the dark recesses of the urban underground and the shimmering bling of celebrity. With both gravitas and irreverence his work might be regarded as a contemporary memento mori with a smile.
Typoe’s work evolves in response to a given situation or environment and he often works with gunpowder, fire, plastic, spray paint and found objects in the creation of his works and installations., the messenger that while laughing, points to hypocrisy and excess while announcing the melancholy of time lost.
Based in Miami, Typoe has participated in gallery and museum shows around the world and exhibited his work in Mexico City, Mexico, New York, Los Angeles, Buenos Aires, Argentina and Basel ,Switzerland. Typoe is cofounder and Creative Director of PRIMARY, an art collective and gallery in Miami.
