Marcelo Holzinger was born in Argentina, and has over 20 years of combined experience as an artist, graphic designer and interior decorator. He began cultivating his artistic talents at a young age, and was naturally drawn to art. “I was born loving beauty. I have always been attracted to art, and it's always been a part of who I am.â€? Marcelo and his family experienced a lot of adversity, and that hardship deepened his sense of compassion. Overcoming the obstacles that he faced helped solidify Marceloâ€&#x;s belief that anything is possible in life. He learned to consistently put his best into everything he did, and to always pursue his passions and dreams. Those dreams led him abroad, where he explored other parts of the world. In his early 20's, he traveled extensively throughout South America, Europe and the United States. The mix of cultures, the history, the timeless art, the wonderful architecture, and especially the people that he encountered greatly impacted him as a person, and as an artist. Marcelo strongly supports charitable causes, and feels fortunate to be able to give back to his community whenever he can. He donates his work, his time, and his energy to help those in need.

Born in Ukraine, Lana Greben received a law degree from Dnipropetrovsk State University before moving to QuĂŠbec, Canada. There, she received a degree in fine arts from the University of Quebec in Abitibi-Temiscamingue. She refined her technique through workshops with some of Canada's most famous artists, and is the founder and Director of the Palace of Arts Harricana and History Museum of Abitibi, Quebec. She has had exhibitions of her work across Canada, as well as in Spain, France, Belgium and the United States. She is a member of the Circle of Painters and Sculptors of Quebec (Le Cercle des Artists Peintres et Sculpteurs du QuĂŠbec). Her work is also featured in the International Contemporary Artists book and International Contemporary Masters V, which feature leading international contemporary artists. Lana is a Gold Medal recipient from the jury of Circle of Painters and Sculptors of Quebec for the originality and technical and aesthetic value of one of her fashion-inspired artworks. "Through their creations, fashion designers create styles, imply values, aesthetics and lifestyles. Fashion, for me, is all about the power of emotion, seduction and passion. My work explores the fascinating interrelation between art and fashion, one in which there is something of a role reversal. Fashion magazines, fashion photography and graphic design, in claiming and validating the visceral emotions and desires evoked by fashion, have themselves become powerful sources of inspiration" Lana said. "If leading fashion designers adopt an aesthetic that brings fashion to art, my work uses art to explore fashion, with its concepts of liberated femininity, unisex, gender identity, and timeless elegance and sophistication. My work does not emphasize accessories or aesthetic details; rather, it is a personal interpretation of the psychological aspects of femininity in fashion design. Using the techniques of fashion illustrators, I try to show not only fragments of feminine characters, but the feelings in women's faces that create the atmosphere of fashion, ushering the observer in a world of extreme sophistication." Lana's artistic philosophy can be summed "Art is my lifestyle and fashion is my world."

Paula Shaughnessy's work is a mix of Mexican folk art and pop art. It is deliberately unrefined, and an emotional connection in the viewer is the goal. Her most significant work is the "Day of the Dead" series, and the significance of the day, honoring people we've loved and lost, is something she's always been drawn to. Paula mainly works in acrylic on canvas, sometimes adding silk ribbon, crystals, or sequins, and finds inspiration in everything around her. She enjoys challenges, such as taking on a topic that is emotionally and physically complex and making it simple and beautiful. A self-described "heavily tattooed former martial artist and roller derby skater", Paula resides in Wayne, NJ with her husband, Patrick. Images: Pumpkin, Skulls 3, Skulls 1.

Victoria graduated from the San Francisco Art Institute in 2010. She currently resides in San Diego with her husband Tahan. The camera grants Victoria permission to investigate stories. For her, the act of photographing leads to the onset of unexpected story lines and interactions. She is drawn to people who are vibrant non-conformists with large personalities and odd habits, and her photographs are portraits of her interactions with people and environments whose worlds she enters and chronicles. Victoria builds relationships with her subjects and is welcomed into their private lives to photograph their possessions, hobbies, partners, and pets without them feeling selfconscious of her flashing camera.

Philip McCobb's artistic passion started when he moved to Yokohama, Japan, and was exposed to Japanese comics and cartoons. The bold graphics and use of movement within the illustrations strongly influenced his style. His eventual relocation to Rome, Italy, proved to be a fortuitous move for a budding artist.

 Later,Philip moved to New York City to study at the School of Visual Arts, where the main practice is to teach students how to implement & harness creativity. It was there that he truly learned about idea-making and he still implements contemporary design techniques taught by leading American designers into all his designs.

Now based in California, Philip has come a long way in this rich and diverse business.

After many years, his style is bold and graphic. Heavily influenced by historic and iconic imagery, Philip loves to tell stories through his pieces, hiding symbolic numbers and images throughout. "When people see my work, I'd like them to be emotionally and physically drawn in, to want to touch and explore the piece."

We must stand strong for our visions. Many will try to scam the artist daily questions for free creativity. "Can you photograph/paint/sing/dance/ for free?"

The answer should always be NO. Value your work! Value the life of experience that is behind your creative process.

Joe Thompson

www.joethompsonart.com

“Art Saves Lives...........Give art a place to happen!”

Joe Thompson is an Atlanta native currently living in Merritt Island, Florida. Married for twenty years, he also has four children. His art reflects many years of experimentation and evolution. Being self taught gives Joe a fearlessness to explore new ideas with a sense of adventure and enthusiasm . "The knowledge is in the doing! Books and lectures only give a person synthetic experience that does no good without application” Thompson says. “Don't look for permission. Go get your hands dirty!" Presently, Joe only uses recycled materials in his art. These materials are manipulated many different ways to achieve different effects. From the whimsical to the serious, no two are the same. Every piece is authentic and original. His art is inspired by the objects he finds and his own colorful life experience. Images: Texting Lady, Shrug.. The Slam II.

Amanda Neistat was born in Miami Beach and raised in the Chicago area. She attended Hofstra University, earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. Amanda's work has been described as "controlled chaos." The most important areas of her paintings are the portions of canvas without paint. "The raw canvas is what gives the piece movement and flow. The „moving colors' allow the observer to connect in their own way to a piece. My work is best experienced without opinion and an open mind. The creative process is deceptively simple. I choose different color paints then, using a pallet knife, spread them across the canvas." Amanda counts Kandinsky and Mark Rothko as major influences on her work. She admires their use of color and geometric shapes, which allows viewers to create their own identity within a piece.

Pierre Duranleau

www.cafargo.com

Born and raised in Montreal, Pierre Duranleau considers himself a cultural product of the coldwar, space-race, and oil embargo era. He took an early interest in art and technology at a very young age. By the 1980s, Pierre studied painting and sculpture in Montreal, and spent two years in Houston, where he was an artist in residence as part of their museum of fine-arts. Today, his work primarily concentrates on core subjects such as human mutations, apocalyptic landscapes, the cold-war stigma, the space-race, the supernatural, and hybrid techno-devices. Pierreâ€&#x;s work is concerned with the incomprehensibly unhealthy, wasteful, and destructive sideeffects produced by a technologically driven, trapped and hypnotized culture.

Exclusive Interview:

Justin Bua

Everythingisart.cc

Issue | V |

P a g e 71


You studied art throughout high school and college, receiving a BFA from the Art Center College of Design in California. What did you learn there that you apply to your artwork? What did you learn in the streets that you apply to it? Art Center really allowed me to be more able and articulate. I really learned the basics there. It opened up a whole new door to me. As for the streets, there’s a lot of energy in New York. The environment that I grew up in was very chaotic. It’s where I learned creativity. I hung out with a lot of crazy kids, and it contributed to my personality and creativity. Some people look down on graffiti as not being an art form. Why do you think graffiti or street art has such a reputation in the art industry, despite the fact that it takes raw talent to produce, and requires the basics of art foundations? And what would you say to those who stereotype it as vandalism? First of all, I think people are starting to accept it as a higher art form. You have art shows featuring it. You have museums and major galleries featuring it in Europe. Those who say it isn’t are wrong. It’s legitimate. Graffiti is a big, big word, though. It implies lots of things. I think when people hear the word, they think ‘tagging,’ not necessarily the murals. Place and presentation has a lot to do with it. If you’re tagging a pastry shop, people might look at that as devaluing the person’s business. But, you could have someone do a mural on the side of a sneaker shop, and it could add value to the business. So, it’s complicated, and each case is individual.

Your “Justin Bua”-style figures in your paintings and drawings have so much character and energy in them. Are they recreated from something you may see on the street, or is it as simple as sitting down and just letting go and creating? All of the above. I have a library of imagery in my imagination that gets unleashed. Like Picasso said, how do you know you’re inspired unless you have a pencil in your hands? Where do you get inspiration from? Is there anything in particular that gets your creativity flowing, such as music? When I was younger, I was really inspired by dancing, and those rhythms really manifest themselves in my brush strokes as well as my subject matter. I get inspired by film, music, other people’s art. When you are creating a piece do you listen to music? I listen to music or Howard Stern when I paint. You have shown the world that urban art is is beautiful. How does it feel that your creativity has enabled you to partner with the biggest names in sports and entertainment, such as the NFL, NBA, and MTV? I just like that my work is out there. I have no problem with working with big corporations. In this day and age, it’s virtually impossible not to. There are some corporations, such as McDonald’s, that I won’t work with due to my own personal convictions, but it is very difficult not to work with a large corporation these days. I think my work with Target has enabled people who maybe aren’t able to go to a museum to see my work, so that’s a positive. I’m all about getting my work to the people, making my art available, and making people happy. Everythingisart.cc

Do you ever get nervous when you‟re revealing a portrait to someone? Absolutely, it’s horrifying. Especially when you get a reaction like ‘Yo, I love the piece, but I don’t really think it looks like me.’ So yea, I get nervous, but I do it because I love to do it.

Tell us a little about your new book, The Legends of Hip Hop. Legends of Hip Hop is a series of portraits of the legends of the greatest culture of the last hundred years, along with the people who inspired the culture, like michael jackson and james brown. These are people who are hip hop. It’s my homage to the culture. There hasn’t been a book that historically documents these iconic images before. There’s also an essay that goes along with each portrait, explaining why they’re significant and why they inspired me.

? What is your favorite piece of art that you have created? I can’t select one. It changes daily. What is your favorite book? Portrait of the artist as a Young Man by James Joyce. What is your favorite movie? It depends on genre, but it ranges from Rocky to Seventh Samurai. Most exciting time in your art career? Right now. By far. Most disturbing time in your art career? Right after I graduated. I was living in a fleabag motel, doing really big paintings for the skateboard industry and making very little money. Terrifying. Not sure where my next meal was coming from. Was there ever a time where you thought you couldn't make it as an artist? Absolutely. and there’s still times where I’ll hit a dry spot and wonder what the hell is going on. It’s weird.

What is your take on the budget cuts to art programs in U.S. schools and the effects it will have on the future of art in the U.S.? Typical and disgusting. I think they should cut the pay and benefits to Congress if they need money, not public school art programs. It’s disturbing. How do you define „making it‟ in the art world? It’s not financial. Financial and material success is an illusion. It doesn’t mean anything. The only thing that means anything is love. It’s doing what you love to do. Where can people find your artwork? Is there anything specific you would like EIA to let our readers know about you and your work?

I’m on twitter at: @justinbua, I’m on Facebook at: facebook.com/bua and justinbua.com. I’m always putting up new work, and it’s really a community. I love to interact with fans, and we discuss art or whatever people want to talk about.

Many revered artists have spent their careers misunderstood by their peers, only to be left immortalized by the timelessness of their work. Their example reminds us to ignore the limitations of others' imaginations and just create what is in our souls. From there it is sure to be authentic, and an accurate reflection of what you as an artist need to express. A

true artist feels compelled to create, to examine endless thoughts, to unveil to the world what travels through our minds. Written by: Rafael Casal Getrafael.com twitter: @rafaelcasal Everythingisart.cc

For anyone who has been following the Bay Area, CA‟s own Rafael Casal over nearly the past decade, it is no surprise that he continues to remain one of the prominent and forever-reaching artists of our time. From humble beginnings championing the National Poetry Slam as a teen, featuring on 3 seasons of Russell Simmon’s Def Poetry on HBO, & performing at hundreds of Universities and venues all over the country, Casal declared himself early as a force to be reckoned with. In recent years he has released 2 full-length music projects THE MONSTER LP and THE BAY BOY MIXTAPE, spent 3 years teaching poetry and theater to undergraduates as Creative Director of the First Wave program at the University of Wisconsin, Madison. There he oversaw the artistic careers of 60 students, directed 19 stage productions, designed the first 4-year undergraduate Hip Hop Theater diversity scholarship curriculum, and premiered his first 1-act commissioned solo work The Limp. His music has featured on MTV‟s The Buried Life and Showtime‟s The Real L Word, and most recently his written work has been published in The Handbook of Social Justice by Bill Ayers and The Limp is to be presented by Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in SF this December. Casal has shared the stage with music and theater heavy hitters like Common, Kanye West, Lemon Anderson, Alanis Morissette, Marc Bamuthi Joseph and George Clinton, and continues to cultivate and capture his audience through mediums like youtube, where over 1.8 million have witnessed his music, poetry, and creative shorts. This year, Casal was named one of the Bay Area‟s Freshmen 10 musicians to watch for by leading radio station 106.1 KMEL, provoking a surge of local support that inspired Casal to get back into the studio and begin recording his 2nd solo album, entitled “Whoville” coming soon!

“I'm honest Even if it is monstrous I out it Cuz the pain of an artist is the paint on his palette”.
