  • BNS

    Biography : Mariano, known by his tag BNS, is a Buenos Aires-born, Brooklyn-based street artist. He pulls Pop cultural memes into a frenzied burst of color and dry humor, from bespoke-suited Stormtroopers to a tatted-out Elvis. He combines aerosol paint, acrylic, silkscreen, ink and photography into his non-stationary work. His work appears in locations throughout the U.S., Spain, Australia, Russia and Argentina.

  • DAIN

    Biography : One of the most influential street artists to emerge from New York City, DAIN intriguingly combines the visual language of graffiti with old Hollywood glamour. Often mingling a female visage with male fashion, he creates distinct pieces with characteristics known only to his works. DAIN selects black and white images that speak to him, often not knowing the subject of the photo but choosing an image in which he finds the eyes outstanding. With a love for 1940s and 50s Hollywood glamour, his work reflects appreciation for an era when women dressed beautifully, revealing very little and leaving much to the imagination. DAIN works single pieces between the street and studio, and combines wheat pasting, silk screening, spray paint, collage and acrylic. He commences the process with collage, the foundation for the piece, using a photo that he layers with old advertisements, logos, and various images. He then chooses the colors for the piece after which he paints and layers spray paint onto the work. He finishes his works with his unmistakable “circle and drip” around the eye, an unintentional trademark yet clearly distinguishing factor of his dynamic works.

  • Florian Eymann

  • Gold Man

    Biography : Born into an art-collecting family in New York City, Gold Man has had lifelong exposure to the arts from a childhood in Soho in the 1980s to his family’s development of Wynwood and the Wynwood Walls. However, it was the untimely death of Gold Man’s father, Tony Goldman (both his best friend and business partner), which led Gold Man to explore a new life path. Grief-stricken, Gold Man spent one year to discover new skills and hone his craft, culminating into his oeuvre which centers on a celestial theme inspired by the Hubbell telescope. As an eternal optimist, Gold Man focuses his energy on the present and future, never looking back. He works spontaneously with thoughts of the cosmos running through his brain, and creates works by imagining what exists in far-flung galaxies. His use of colors and textures does not require forethought as he chooses them instinctively during the creative process, and also extemporaneous is Gold Man’s use of glitter which he applies as star dust, reflecting his vision at that moment in time. The varied textures, colors, and depths of Gold Man’s pieces reflect his notion that the universe is filled with infinite opportunities while the dynamic relationship between light and the glitter demonstrates his appreciation for the world’s constant state of flux. His multilayered technique using rich hues along with varying degrees of gold lends to mysterious abstraction and allows the viewer to fantasize and ponder his or her own meaning of the cosmos, fulfilling Gold Man’s artistic objective.

  • Skyler Grey  (+)

    Biography : As the youngest artist ever to be internationally exhibited, 15 year-old Los Angeles-based Skyler Grey is a rising star and one of the newest fixtures on the LA street art scene. After the tragic loss of his mother at age 2 and subsequent placement in therapy that involved art and drawing, Grey’s father noticed his son’s incredible artistic interest, talent and creativity. Over the years, with his father’s encouragement and continuous practice on various mediums, Grey has already transformed his talent into an extraordinary career. Although not formally trained, Skyler has educated himself by exposure to the arts and constant sharpening of his artistic skills. Influenced by artists like Jean-Michel Basquiat and Keith Haring, Grey has developed his own distinctive style and artistic concept.

  • Will Kurtz

  • Guy le Baube

    Biography : Guy Le Baube, a celebrated fashion photographer, uses precision and wit to capture every nuance of the female form in his bold, sexy and spirited black-and-white photographs. Moving to New York from France in the 1970s, Le Baube worked as a commercial photographer working on editorial campaigns and receiving high acclaim for his works which appeared in publications such as Vogue, Harpers Bazaar, and Elle. After several years shooting commercial work, he decided in the early 1990s to pursue his own artistic vision and create several series centered on the female nude. Le Baube’s works are glamorous and erotic but also daring and surprising. His first series entitled “Behind the Scene” consisted of intimate portraits of leggy models, often only donning heels. He demonstrates his expertise in light, shadow, and the female form and although his works have a playful element, he approaches his work with an awareness of the darker side of fashion: the objectification of women. He addresses this issue with his “Readymade” series of oversized photographs of females in various set-ups, packed into crates, ready for shipping.

  • Alec Monopoly

    Biography : Although his true identity is shrouded in mystery, Los Angeles-based Alec Monopoly is one of today’s most recognized graffiti artists. In Monopoly’s tableaux, done on city surfaces, newsprint, sheet music or canvas, his work typically depicts the mustachioed, top-hat-wearing, Monopoly board game character performing a variety of activities. From sprinting with a moneybag under one arm to spinning turntables as a DJ, Monopoly uses cartoonish illustrations as his own political commentary and in the process has generated his own recognizable style of street art. Inspired by the financial crisis of 2008, the first real figure Monopoly painted was Bernie Madoff, whom he considers the ultimate symbol of the financial collapse. Now using a broad range of well-known public figures as his subjects, both fictional and real, Monopoly creates works that speak to current events in international political and pop culture realms. Growing up in New York City with a classically trained painter as a mother, Monopoly considers himself a lifelong artist. Eschewing formal training for his pursuit of creating street art, Monopoly has established himself as one of the foremost artists of this genre. His unique style takes a lighthearted approach rather than the typical grim slant of street art, differentiating him from his contemporaries and giving his art a relatable quality. Monopoly exhibited for the first time in Hong Kong during Art Basel 2015 and opens his first solo show in May 2015 at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Bangkok.
