Andrew Osta was born in Kiev, Ukraine, in 1982. He immigrated to Canada in 1994, and graduated with honors from the University of Toronto’s Arts and Sciences program. Osta started writing music in 2002 and began drawing and painting in 2005. His turn towards art was a complete surprise to his friends and family. “It happened as a result of a certain emotional breakthrough. I felt an overflowing of emotion that demanded to be expressed, and the only way to express it adequately was through art.” After moving to Peru, where he exhibited along with Pablo Amaringo at the 5th International Amazonian Shamanism Conference, Osta wrote a manuscript which became the book “Shamans and Healers: The Untold Ayahuasca Story” (www.ShamansAndHealers.com). Several songs he wrote were also selected to be recorded for a full - length musical album, Dimension Dream. Images: Love, Mexican Cowboy, Holy Ground, The Lovers.

JV: According to your bio, you

failed art class as a child for coloring outside the lines” and "

despite this, your parents always encouraged you to think outside the box.

in me when I was growing up. She was a little Italian lady who had a lot of heart. She actually went in to the school and got all worked up when they failed me for coloring outside the lines, and that really gave me the confidence to be myself and to do my own thing, regardless of what anyone else thought. And my dad and I are very close. Even now, I’ll call him up and just ask what he thinks of different ideas that I have and he’ll give me his opinion. He still paints and sculpts, and he’s a big inspiration to me. JV: Obviously, you love music. You mentioned touring with several New York hardcore and punk bands, which ones did you tour with?

AB: My parents were always supportive and encouraged me to be myself. They would tell me to do my own thing and not worry about what other people think. I think my mom was really instrumental in really ingraining that independence

AB: I toured with Muphy’s Law, then I joined a band called Handsome, which was made up of guys from bands like Helmet, Murphy’s Law and Cro-Mags. After that, I played with the Breeders, but they had some problems, and at that point, I just didn’t want to do it anymore. So I went home and hung out for two months or so, and that’s when I ran into my friend who got me involved with David LaChappelle

!"#$%&'()*+,-+.$&+++++/+,--0#++1++

JV: You were involved with Z-Bar, a legendary New York location for the hardcore and punk scene. How did you get involved with it? AB: My brother is a restaurant guy, and he was running several restaurants and bars in Manhattan. I would come in to his places and sometimes I’d DJ, sometimes I’d build stuff, and it evolved into something where I’d design and renovate a place and get it looking really cool with a really nice vibe, and then the place would open and it would totally change. It got me thinking that if I had a place of my own, I could continue that vibe with the music, the staff, food, etc. So, there was a place, Z-Bar, near where I

was living at the time, and it was in bad shape. But my brother knew the owners and when they heard what I was looking to do, they basically gave me free reign to do whatever I wanted to it. So I went in there, painted everything flat black, and called some friends. I brought in graffiti artists and had them just do their thing. We had a few guys from Marvel comics who used to hang there, and I got them to do some illustrations, so it was a really unique atmosphere. I brought in local bands to play and within six months we had lines around the corner. It became a really successful place. It’s cool, because people still tell me how they remember Z-Bar from way back and what good times they had.

JV: According to your website, you operate under the mantra "go big or go home." Are there any other mottos or mantras you as an artist live by? AB: Without sounding too cliche’, I

without taking a risk, there’s no reward. I love taking risks, whether I fail or succeed, I’m not afraid. When I do fail, it makes me feel like

JV: Where do you get a lot of your inspiration from? Is it from the streets of NY, your background, or is it a more complex synthesis of a bunch of elements?

come back stronger and inspires me to keep pushing. And when I succeed, it’s really cool. It’s kind of weird, because people either love me or hate me, and the people that do love me aren’t necessarily in love with everything I do, but they’re inspired by some of my work, and that’s what it’s all about. That’s what makes it all worth it.

AB: I’m inspired by everything around me. Past experience, family, friends, or just walking down the street. I recently moved to downtown LA, and a few months ago I was feeling really uninspired. I took Chewie [my dog] on a long walk. We just walked the streets for hours, going nowhere in particular, and when we got home and I had all these new ideas. I tend to collect a lot of thoughts and images in my head and they kind of pop out at weird times.!

So now onto the favorites: Set Designs By Antonio.

Band?

Movie? The Jerk

Oh man, there are so many different ones, I don’t think I can choose just one. I love so many different types of music. Metal, rock, reggae, funk, soul. I love collecting vinyl. growing up, it was kiss, and they still inspire me. When I was a kid, I had all the Kiss dolls, and I would build little stages and sets for them.

Book? “Hotel LaChappelle” by David LaChappelle. I’m really proud of being a part of that whole scene.

Artists?

Francis Bacon, Picasso. I love the thought behind Jackson Pollack, how everyone gave him shit because they said his artwork looked like spaghetti, and how he changed the game, so to speak. Reading about him, I really appreciate the things he went through for being different, and now he’s considered one of the masters. It’s inspiring to me. When I read some of the critical things that people write about me, knowing what he went through, I know that just comes with the territory of being an artist. Not that I’m comparing myself to him in any way, but just knowing that he went through all of that stuff and kept on going is inspiring to me.!

JV: How have things (both personally and artistically) changed since you started giving people The Antonio Treatment? ! AB: Well, it’s a little strange. I’ll be walking through Home Depot and people will come up to me and say “hey, I love the show!” and most of the time I’m wondering if I know them, because I forget I have a TV show. So in that way, it’s kind of weird. But what’s really awesome is when people will contact me and tell me that my work inspired them. People will send me pictures of stuff they built, stuff they created, and that’s killer. That makes everything worth it. It’s the ultimate payoff. ! JV: Can you please tell us more about your LA studio, Studio 413, and "The Ingredient Group"? ! AB: Studio 413 is my loft where I live and work. We started it as a full time design studio, but with the Antonio Treatment, happening it’s kind of taken over the space. The Ingredient Group is me partnered with Chef Sammy D, who I like to call the ‘food version’ of me. He’s a Brooklyn guy, so we’re from similar backgrounds. He’ll take traditional dishes and create a crazy twist on it. ! JV: Will that be filmed? ! AB: We’re trying to work out the details. I don’t know if it’s going to be Antonio Treatment or an online thing or maybe a special. I’m not sure yet. I think it would really show the true, fullest potential of the thing. Especially in Vegas, where everything is larger than life to begin with, I think these two projects are going to be really over the top and special. It’s definitely going to be documented. ! JV: Your dog, Chewie, is a big part of your life, as well as the show. How is he doing? ! AB: Chewie’s doing great. We get a lot of Chewie paintings and Chewie art work sent to us. It’s pretty cool. He loves the fans, and I think the fame is going to his head a little bit, but he’s still all about love and cuddling. I’m thinking about getting a little sister for him to play with, so that’s something that might be happening soon. ! JV: Are there any other projects on the horizon that you want to talk about? ! AB: I’m really excited about the downtown LA Art Walk. It’s a once a month thing, and something like 40,000 people converge on downtown LA. They basically take over all these empty spaces and turn them into galleries. I just met with people from the Art Walk, and they offered me a great opportunity to do whatever kind of shows I want to do. I’m really happy to be here and really stoked at where my life is heading. ! ! !"#$%&'()*+,-+.$&+++++/+,--0#++1++

Franz Salazar New Jersey http://www.wix.com/ezark40/artfz

65+


Born in Peru, Franz Salazar is a fine artist, painter, graphic designer, and photographer. Family has had a great impact on his life, and he grew up surrounded by art. The death of an uncle, who was an artist, writer, and poet, had a huge influence on his creative and artistic side. Recently, painting has been his main focus, but he continues to illustrate and photograph. He is a strong believer that there is a way to communicate by being expressive through his art. Even though the work develops from different concepts, his style is consistent. “Since the mid 90's, my approach to art has evolved. This evolution is evident in all my work. I'm a strong believer that there is a way to communicate by being expressive and feel as if I'm able to do this with my pieces. As an artist, I put so much passion into my work, which means my pieces are a part of me as well.” “I find art very therapeutic, it relaxes me.” Images: Killer Bee, Love Hurts, Friend. !

Eladia Alvarado New Jersey www.eladiaalvarado.com Eladia was born in Peru in 1969 and immigrated to the NYC area in 1973. She completed her artistic training at the School of Visual Arts in 1992. Working primarily in oils and in abstract form, Eladiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s paintings are vivid in color and hold up to three layers of paint to add depth and translucency. She does not adhere to current art trends, but prefers to be true to her own artistic expression from within. Her influences are everywhere in NYC, with its rich multi-cultural and diverse population and constant activity. ! Artist Statement: My work is a mixture of emotions and reflects my love for the forces of nature, both healing and harmful, as well as my love for music and diverse cultures. I paint my daily life in color and form as a writer might write on his journal every day, taking note of every minute detail in color instead of words. My goal is to have the viewer feel the fluidity of the ocean or wind through my painting. I paint dreams and emotions in the form of color, and through my brush try to translate it to others as best I can. Images: Mazda, Rain, Inception.

Born and raised in the Bronx, New York, Christina Rodriguez is a graphic designer by trade and an artist at heart. In addition to being a full time student at The Art Institute of New York City, she currently runs her own venture, 'Drk Grphc Arts.' She likes to draw, paint, admire photography, and write poetry. Most important of all to Christina is that she is the mother of two beautiful girls, who serve as her ultimate inspiration. Artist Statement: I have always found a way to see everything as beautiful, and I have a unique sense of aesthetics that enables me to create desires & motivate responses. I don’t just draw or create what I see with my eye, but what I feel with my heart. My media of choice is pastels and charcoal, as it is a much overlooked traditional artistic medium which I think should be given a lot more credit. I feel that working with dry media is very hands on, and when it comes to size, small is not an option for me. The bigger the better. As of late I have found ways of incorporating my traditional artwork into digital based designs.

Artist Statement: I am drawn to photographing contemporary urban spaces that are absent of people and have minimal evidence of human involvement. I refer to these spaces as being void, not empty. The void seduces my sensibilities and is a pathway for my psychological release. I photograph ideas and select the type of photography applications that best describe the projectâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s focus by using film or digital. Scale is also a consideration, and large prints will be used when it benefits the message I want to express. The use of color versus black and white is a powerful decision when considering emotions such as nostalgia, whereas color can stimulate senses in another way that can arouse a more inviting and exciting side. Sometimes color is the main character, and the message shifts. !

www.abramovichpatricia.com Patricia Abramovich views art as “the freedom to create with no boundaries, to express the diversity of color from which the human soul is composed.” Spreading color across a canvas is a means of meditation that enables her to connect with her inner self. Her hands move with rhythm using the painter’s knife to mix the colors directly on the blank canvas, letting her soul do the conducting. When working in water color aquarelle, Patricia allows the colors to merge with the water in whatever direction they choose, allowing the painting to proceed in the direction it is meant to go. “I feel when the artwork is ready and reaching a balance between the colors. I usually have no preconceived idea and am always curious to see the final results of my painting.” Patricia’s major influences are Monet and Cézanne, but she also appreciates the works of Van Gogh, Sissley, Renoir and Michelangelo.

Michael Benjamin grew up in an extremely rural area of Pennsylvania, the youngest of six children. His parents instilled in him a spirit of acceptance, love for all people, hope, and enjoyment of life. His method of expressing this spirit is art. As a child, he was heavily influenced by his brother, who was a fantastic, but critical, artist. Michael felt that he needed to judge art and artists at a young age due to his brother’s influence. Entering an art competition when he was in sixth grade, which required him to attempt to duplicate several famous paintings, freed him from the negative influences of his brother’s views and allowed him to gain real world artistic experience. After moving to Pa, and receiving mentoring from a wonderful art teacher, Michael was accepted to Pratt in 1992. There, he experienced what he describes as ‘artistic heaven’. After leaving Pratt due to financial reasons, he attended Cooper Union, but found the competition amongst the students to be disillusioning. After 2 years, Michael took a leave of absence to help his family build a house and never went back. He came away with a deep respect and admiration for the handful of students who did not succumb to the politics and artistic banter. After living in the Chicago area for several years. Michael moved to New York with his wife and child. He landed an art handling job with Pace Wildenstein (now Pace Galleries) and found himself boxing Picassos, and and talking with famous painter Chuck Close. Michael later worked at the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art, installing the 25-year retrospective of Sol LeWitt’s work. There, he rediscovered his love for painting. He rediscovered his works from his Pratt days, and picked up where he had left off many years ago. The magic of art had come back to him, and he’ll never let it get away again. www.emichaelbenjamin.com Images: Beyond Kedron, In The Garden, Conception, Cezzane Abstract Self, The Final Lucky, It’s A Ship, Shipping Anchor.

Ya La’Ford New York

Ya La’Ford’s pieces are symbolic of a lifelong fascination with ancient tribal languages. An exploration of life, survival and existence, La’Ford’s art reflects an intimate window to humanity and history shared with the present day. ! She attempts to quiet the mind in her pieces, allowing the viewers solitude, and to direct their thoughts toward what nourishes the body, mind and spirit. Her work touches those who observe it in a way that it becomes somewhat of an escape, providing a touchstone to return to when needed.

Do you have a specific motto or mantra that you live by?

My motto is ‘do anything, don’t give a shit.’ There are no rules in fashion, there is no wrong or right. It’s about selfexpression. !

How important do you think art is in fashion design?

Art and fashion design go hand in hand. I consider myself an artist before a designer. I feel like I’m an entertainer and a performer. Fashion is just wearable art. !

Where does your inspiration come from?

Inspiration is everywhere. People, places, things, music, movies. I can find inspiration in anything.

Favorites...?! Book? The Secret Music? Hip Hop has been a huge part of my life. I love all types of music, though. I love Fiona Apple, Madonna, Michael Jackson, Prince, Lady Gaga. I love so many different types.

Is there anyone you haven’t worked with yet that you look forward to working with? I would love to work with Lady Gaga. I love her, and I love her message. She’s somebody who is herself, and I love her work.

Just do it. Just don’t stop. You can accomplish anything if you don’t quit and don’t give up.

What advice would you give to an up and coming designer or artist?
