Artist Feature - Kevin W.

KEVIN W.



 The common thread that connects all of Kevin’s work is the idea of social equality, justice, and a guiding code of morality. Whether depicting presidents or historical events alongside quotes of tolerance and perseverance, or developing his own stories, characters, and illustrations, this theme is apparent. Kevin has a deep and personal connection to his art, expressing himself through his work, his triumphs, as well as the struggle to achieve those moments. Kevin states that by viewing his art he hopes that it can show people a certain way to live, while encouraging that we all go our own way.

Duck...duck....GOOSE!






Today we took a little break from art-makin' and played a little afternoon game of duck-duck-goose at the request of some of our artists!

Artist Feature - Josh Y.

We'll be starting another weekly post on Tuesdays that will be dedicated to introducing you to each of our artists and their work! Our very first artist feature is about Josh! He recently had his first solo art exhibition, Game Over. Be sure to check out the post about his show here!


JOSHUA Y.




Josh’s art seldom settles. Because his interests and passions are eclectic and ever-changing, it only seems appropriate that his art reflects the same qualities. Josh’s work often operates as an homage to his favorite pop culture icons, delving into actors, local celebrities, athletes, and current as well as classical films. Josh engrosses himself with these themes by collecting any and all memorabilia related to his interests, often having pictures or objects surrounding him while working. Josh also works around the philosophy that everything can be used to create art, often using found objects to repurpose into his sculptures, as well as disassembling older works to use for a new project.
