They change the way we experience the world and when provided with intention and understanding, they can reduce stress, increase positivity, and reinforce self-efficacy. Most of all, the very existence of creative expression as a human behavior embodies the everpresent transformative possibility for hope to emerge from despair, aggression and violence.â€? -Cathy Malchiodi, PhD, LPCC, LPAT, ATR-BC Cover art: untitled self by marley van portrait peebles m.a.m.a.earth presents ONE PEACE m.a.m.a. earth presents: One Peace: A Charity Art Event at Andrew Weiss Gallery at the historic Bergamot Station in Santa Monica, CA Curated by Jaime Kailani Bayot and Andrea Miller New oďŹ€erings from emerging and established artists from Los Angeles, New York and the Philippines.

We partner with schools as well as local and global non-profits to present workshops and fundraising events.

Global chapters have been launched in places like Brazil, Chile, the Philippines and Germany with young people planting trees, cleaning up neighborhoods and collecting clothing and toys for local orphanages.

Live screen printing by hit+run of the young man Portrait as a artist Marley He Mana'o Akamai Van Peebles was born at home in water on November 9, 1998 in Los Angeles, California. He is the progeny of (film director) Mario Van Peebles and (artist and philanthropist) Jaime Kailani Bayot, grandson to the legendary filmmaker Melvin Van Peebles and nephew to international pop star Bruno Mars. Marley is a venerable third generation artist from both mother and father's side so his improbable artistic genius is as cumulatively congenital as it is objective and rare. Van Peebles may be 14 chronologically but artistically and creatively, he is a wondrous, complex and artistic force who has great potential to develop and succeed in art. While young talent is somewhat abundant in the art world, style certainly is not. Have you ever read about gifted children with the incomprehensible ability to eﬀortlessly rattle oﬀ answers to very complex mathematical equations? Well, Marley's art talent would be analogous to that kind of genius but in an artistically and visually creative way. His "vision" and how he lays it down on paper is a wonder and curiosity. Marley’s work has been collected by serious art collectors like actor and filmmaker Leonardo DiCaprio. Van Peebles will oﬃcially debut his work in Los Angeles at the “One Peace” art event on June 9, 2013.

Ben has been working as a registered nurse as his main profession for the last 14 years and currently works at Keck Medical Center of USC, where he discovered and started his artistic journey. Ben began drawing coworkers and patients as a means of engaging and uplifting them, as well as their families.Ben sees his talent as a mere reflection or an honest capturing of what he sees in reality. His main goal as an artist is not to be flawless or perfect. Instead, Ben’s approach is to maintain the integrity of the subject(s) and to tell his/her story; which he does beautifully. Although on the surface nursing and artistry seem unrelated, Ben feels that nursing contributes very much to his artistic development and journey. Nursing has made him sensitive and responsive to emotions and expressions – which he feels is key to recognizing his patients’ needs. Ben adds that, “Many years of bedside nursing has provided me with emotional maturity and a wealth of knowledge in understanding individuals at their most diﬃcult, trying times. Behind every face there is a great story to be told. There is an essence, a soul, a fighting spirit. Thus, I put forward my best eﬀort in capturing these characteristics and making them apparent in the portrait.” Artwork by shah wonders ius Creative gen Shah wonders Shah Wonders is a Grammy and MTV award winning, Brooklyn-based graphic artist.

Currently, Ronda Brown is Art Director and teacher at Crenshaw High School.
