I’m an 23 year old artist who has a passion for oil painting and pen/pencil drawings. I love to create portraits in a realistic and traditional art style but sometimes incorporate other style such as, fantasy art, digital, and little bit of abstract. I started drawing when I was 4, and I’ve always had an affinity to creativity and imagination.
My inspiration is drawn from the renaissance era, victorian era, and 50’s hyperrealistism, and I wish to reach the skill level in future. Art for me has always been about aesthetics and visuals, and seldom about having some deep meaning, however the older I got, I realized my painting can have a meaningful impact either to me or the viewer. Art has the power to inspire, heal, teach, and move society forward, so I feel I have a duty to fulfil with art.

Tion Torrence aka Bukue One is a modern day bboy, graffer, producer and emcee from the Bay Area, equally influenced by the cultures of skateboarding and hip-hop, found prevalently where he was raised. In 1998 Tion‘s company, Urban Productions, put together a four-day hip-hop / action sports festival in San Francisco that united skateboarding and hip-hop, featuring an A-list of artists, bboy crews, DJs and professional skaters.
Frank Knight, also known as Knizza or Frank Knizza, is a hip-hop artist and activist, born and raised in Brooklyn, NY. Frank uses his artistry and influence to convey the message of hope, self-determination and love to express the stories of all the impoverished low income individuals from all corners of the world, and has been featured on The Source, Hot 97, Hip-Hop DX and many more.
Our team has delivered an expressive cover art for Most Def, using an abstract arctic scenery as the base element, along with the song credits in solid sans serif typography on the bottom side.
For a short period in the early 90s, the parallel worlds of hip-hop and skating went askew and converged. At the time both were still perceived by the mainstream as antisocial behaviors and temporary fads. Hip-hop was not “real music”. Skating was not a “real sport”.
In 2006, these perceptions couldn’t be further from the truth, as both disciplines have become fully integrated into the mainstream consciousness, not to mention multi-billion dollar industries. Somewhere along the way their paths diverged and these days they have few intersections even though they remain brothers in spirit. Yet there are some who walk among us that remember those days when hip-hop was an integral part of skating, says Tion.
Bukue One is a product of that confluence of underground currents. In his hip-hop dictionary, there are 5 core elements: rapping, DJing, breakdancing, graffiti and skateboarding. Intromission is the extraordinary album of a true Bay Area original, who in a single leap can pull a 360° kickflip, throw up a graffiti burner, and spit a tight verse.

Hi, my name is Daniele also known as DJart.Iam a visual creator and educator residing in the Caribbean. My creations are mainly done using water base paints or oil paints. My inspiration comes from many sources, it just depends on what I will like to communicate or express in a piece. However, I am deeply motivated by using brightcolours in artworks, simply because it improves and uplifts the mood.

The Monegasque restaurant Le Pinocchio host the artwork of Houda Bakkali, “Life is beautiful” in an exhibition that also proposes the public to experiment with augmented reality.
The Monegasque restaurant Le Pinocchio will host the artwork of Houda Bakkali, “Life is beautiful” in an exhibition that also proposes the public to experiment with augmented reality.
With the artwork “Life is beautiful”, the visual artist Houda Bakkali launches a universal message of optimism and hope. The protagonist is a female figure inspired by her missing mother, a women’s rights activist to whom the artist dedicated this work in memory of their summers in Monaco.
“Life is beautiful” becomes an icon of free and strong femininity. A tribute to nature is reinterpreted through the flowers. A fresh, romantic, funny and snobbish vision. The work is completed with two performances based on augmented reality.
