Krista Kim (b, Canada, based in Toronto) [@krista.kim]

Krista Kim is a contemporary artist based in Toronto and working out of New York and Paris. Krista is the founder of the Techism movement since 2014, promoting the confluence of art and technology, and technological innovation as a medium to further the development of digital humanism. She believes that artists must participate at the vanguard of technological innovation in order to contribute to the creation of future culture during this pivotal period of technological innovation, adaptation and disruption. In her Digital Consciousness series, Krista gathers digital images of LED lights, and manipulates them using multiple software to create her artwork, a technique that she has developed since 2012. She was an abstract expressionist, and she uses the same artistic approach to create her digital artwork. @artrepublicglobal

Krista Kim (b, Canada, based in Toronto) [@krista.kim]

Krista is a Techism artist whose work is a response to our constant exposure to LED lights through our devices. Recently relocating her artist studio to Brooklyn, Krista further pushes the boundaries of the digital art making process. Her work is concerned with the evolution of contemporary art through the rise of digital media and expresses digital consciousness and questions our current aesthetic principles. Her work explores digital technology and its revolutionary effects on human perception, media, social structures and communication. @guyhepner

Michael Kalish (b. 1973, Atlanta,GA  based in Los Angeles) [@michael.kalish]

Like no other American artist of his time, Michael Kalish is recognized for inventing an entire genre and brand out of the license plate and for creating distinctive iconic sculptures made solely from reclaimed materials. Over the past 20 years Kalish has been creating large scale interactive public Monuments as well as smaller scale works that hang in Galleries and Museums around the Globe and in the private collections of world leaders, fortune 100 companies, past Presidents, professional athletes, and musicians. His unique position as a preeminent arbiter of design and style has led to features in a wide variety of media including The Wall Street Journal, NY Times, Details, Wired, ArtNews, CBS Sunday Morning, CNN, E!, MSN, TLC, and most recently as the host of Discovery Channel’s “Final Offer”. @olivercolegallery

Michael Kalish (b. 1973, Atlanta,GA  based in Los Angeles) [@michael.kalish]

Out of the utilitarian and overlooked, Kalish fashions works of steely confidence, proudly displaying their wear, patina and rust as a tribute to that which endures. His license plate works include homages to America itself and to many of it’s most recognizable faces, capturing the likenesses of Marilyn, Elvis. The Beatles, and Mickey Mouse, all with a wink to pop masters such as Warhol and Lichtenstein. His roses, both framed and freestanding, are made from automobile parts; their surprising voluptuousness led to solo exhibitions in Museums and Galleries in Stockholm, Geneva and New York. His giant abstracts, comprised of recycled classic car parts from the 50’s and 60’s, triumphantly declare their resurrections. His three-dimensional editions, constructed of high-gloss metal layers, playfully interact with viewers, affording unique experiences depending upon their vantage points. @michael.kalish

Michael Kalish (b. 1973, Atlanta,GA  based in Los Angeles) [@michael.kalish]

When Michael Kalish combined pop culture and Americana with the object of his fascination, the heretofore “lowly license plate” was elevated from the junkyard to the museum, from garages and highways to the living room wall. In the process, he became the artists responsible for creating a new genre, winning international acclaim, and setting his expectations-defying career into motion. @edenfineart

Dan Alva is an artist based in Miami who, whether despite or because of his background in the very type of advertising that he aims to challenge, deliberately changes the messages of recognizable ad campaigns to comment on the excesses of materialism and lifestyle marketing. Using actual billboard fragments, they retain enough of the original design that we clearly see the original message and can contrast it to his alterations.@yngspc

Kenny Scharf (b. 1958, L.A., based in Los Angeles) [@kennyscharf]

My ambition as a professional artist is to maintain the course that I set 30 years ago by establishing my work in the fields of painting, sculpture, and performance. Every project I undertake is building on my past experiences. My original approach is unchanged; it is a personal challenge to produce the best work possible every time. One very important and guiding principle to my work is to reach out beyond the elitist boundaries of fine art and connect to popular culture through my art. My personal ambition has always been to live the example.

Kenny Scharf rose to prominence alongside his friends and contemporaries Jean-Michel Basquiat and Keith Haring in the East Village art scene of the 1980s.  One of the first artists to inject elements of street culture into the main stream of contemporary art, Scharf has continued to pioneer projects like his Cosmic Cavern—a now legendary all-night DayGlo disco party held in the basement of a Brooklyn warehouse from 2009-2010.  His paintings incorporate imagery from advertisements, cartoons and classic Americana into exuberant compositions with an underlying subversive edge.  @kasmingallery

Kenny Scharf (b. 1958, L.A., based in Los Angeles) [@kennyscharf]  Muralist, painter, sculptor, and installation artist Kenny Scharf is best known for his fantastical, large-scale paintings of anthropomorphic animals and imagined creatures, as in Viva Mare Viva Mar (2011). Though Scharf’s brightly colored imagery is generally playful, he has remarked that darker themes exist beneath the surface of his works, visible upon closer inspection. Scharf was a part of the 1980s East Village Art movement, along with his good friend and fellow street artist Keith Haring. The artist says he has been influenced by all 20th-century art movements, including Abstract Expressionism and Pop Art, the latter reflected in his appropriation of cartoon characters from television shows like the Flintstones and Jetsons and his humorous depiction of snack food in Maple Glazed Donut Over Fertile Landscape (2011). Scharf’s oftentimes dense and frenetic compositions also echo a Baroque sensibility. @allouchegallery

The works of artist Michael Vasquez present the viewer with snapshots of urban life from a safe distance. Beneath layers of thick impasto, Vasquez’s expressive brushwork and pools of saturated crimson ebb and flow with the rhythms of hip-hop music, naturalistically rendered and rough around the edges. Vasquez presents his gangster types in viscous paint, personifications of masculine identity and dominance boasting chains that drip with diamonds and flickers of gold teeth. @wdwlls

Vasquez grew up in St. Petersburg, FL, and later received his BFA from New World School of the Arts in Miami. New World had a definite influence on his practice, but it was his experiences growing up in a single-parent household that most shaped his work. “Gangs idealistically embodied the concept of an extended family with its own set of values, all the while projecting a certain level of toughness and masculinity,” Vasquez explains. “These seemed to be the things I was missing, or maybe even unknowingly searching for, in my definitive and naive early years.”@thehundreds

Michael Vasquez (b.1983, based in Miami, Florida) [@michaelvasquez_]  Michael Vasquez’s work explores a world of misguided youth, subjects who are in search of acceptance and belonging amidst undeserved communities, broken homes, street gangs, and cliques. With his portraits, Vasquez presents groups of “extended families”, governed by their own sets of values and social codes. His work is deeply embedded with signs, symbols, and the performative bravado of his subjects, an examination of the reoccurring themes of masculinity, identity, and community. Vasquez’s work has been exhibited in numerous institutions, including the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery (D.C.), the MDC Museum of Art + Design (FL), the MOCA North Miami (FL), and the Orlando Museum of Art (FL). @castaniergallery

Takashi Murakami is the originator of the “Superflat” Theory and the artist most associated with its tenets. He has maintained a multifaceted career as an artist, curator, collector, film director, and the founder of Kaikai Kiki. As a curator, Murakami organized a trilogy of exhibitions, beginning with SUPERFLAT ( which traveled from Parco Gallery, Shibuya to MOCA, Los Angeles and other museums) and continuing with Coloriage (Fondation Cartier pour l’Art Contemporain), and Little Boy (NY Japan Society), the last of which was awarded the prize for Best Thematic Show by the US of the International Association of Art Critics.

TAKASHI MURAKAMI (b.1962, based in Tokyo, Japan) [@takashipom]

Takashi Murakami is one of the most visible and important Japanese artists working today. Murakami’s influence on Japan rivals Andy Warhol’s on the United States, and he is known for disseminating and promoting pop art strategies in ways unforeseen by American critics and artists. Unifying many strands of culture that are frequently considered in opposition—traditional Japanese painting with Western influences, the realm of fine art with otaku lifestyle (juvenile culture obsessed with toys, anime, and video games), and commercial retail spaces with museums and other public venues—Murakami’s work is recognized for its ambition, polish, and fine execution.  @thebroadmuseum

TAKASHI MURAKAMI (b.1962, based in Tokyo, Japan) [@takashipom] Takashi Murakami is one of the most visible and important Japanese artists working today. Murakami’s influence on Japan rivals Andy Warhol’s on the United States, and he is known for disseminating and promoting pop art strategies in ways unforeseen by American critics and artists. Unifying many strands of culture that are frequently considered in opposition—traditional Japanese painting with Western influences, the realm of fine art with otaku lifestyle (juvenile culture obsessed with toys, anime, and video games), and commercial retail spaces with museums and other public venues—Murakami’s work is recognized for its ambition, polish, and fine execution. @thebroadmuseum •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• •••••••••• Help us share your art with the world and repost us 🌏 •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Please tag #buffedmag  and follow us @buffedmag 👈🏼 for a chance to be featured
TAKASHI MURAKAMI (b.1962, based in Tokyo, Japan) [@takashipom]

A lightning rod of cultural dichotomies, Takashi Murakami believes the artist to be one who perceives and limns the borders between worlds. Combining refined classical painting techniques with a supercharged mix of Pop, animé, and otaku imagery in his distinctive “Superflat” style, Murakami moves freely within an ever-expanding field of aesthetic issues and cultural inspirations. Parallel to the dystopian themes which pervade his work, he recollects and revitalizes traditional narratives of transcendence and enlightenment. Mining religious and secular subjects favored by the so-called Japanese “eccentrics”—non-conformist artists of the Early Modern era widely regarded as counterparts of the Western Romantic tradition—Murakami situates himself within their legacy of bold and lively individualism in a manner that is entirely his own and of his time. @gagosiangallery

Mary Weatherford (b. 1963, Ojai, Ca based in Los Angeles) [@maryweatherford]

Apart from the colorfully gauzy landscapes and skyscapes, perhaps the most striking part of Weatherford’s work since moving from New York back to L.A. is her propensity to lacerate her paintings with neon slashes. @cultured_mag

Mary Weatherford (b. 1963, Ojai, Ca based in Los Angeles) [@maryweatherford]

Profoundly interested in experience, Mary Weatherford makes paintings that evoke a specific time, locale, and temperature. Her recent works, in which the canvases are affixed and sometimes juxtaposed with working neon light, provide an elusive and sometimes radical comment on the legacy of gestural abstraction. Weatherford is noted for her masterful use of overlapping fields of color, and as her work has advanced the increasingly complex and luminous interactions between paint, lighting, and wiring have produced a hybrid form that collapses the distinction between painting and installation. @gagosiangallery

Mary Weatherford (b. 1963, Ojai, Ca based in Los Angeles) [@maryweatherford]  Claiming that her paintings are about mortality, Mary Weatherford turns to the Californian landscape as her muse, translating its bright and moody colors, tangled vegetation, and weathered coastline licked by the changing sea into expressively painted abstract and representational compositions. These scenes serve as vehicles for her explorations of form, space, and color, and as triggers for transcendental experiences and emotions. She works with paint on canvas, occasionally incorporating neon tubing, starfish, and shells into her compositions. As Weatherford describes, Modern movements and artists inspire her metaphysical approach to nature: “The American symbolist movement is deeply rooted in landscape, which is very important to me. I’m interested in Arthur Dove, Marsden Hartley, Charles Burchfield, Agnes Pelton, Georgia O’Keeffe. In all this work there is a compelling centrifugal force distinctive to images that point to the transcendental.” @davidkordanskygallery

Aaron De La Cruz (b.1980, based in San Francisco Ca) [@aarondelacruz]

Aaron De La Cruz presents paintings and sculpture that incorporate patterns and motifs that at their core are very simple, but when gathered together create complex, labyrinthine compositions. His pieces, with bold lines and distinctive use of color, straddle between the practice of painting and design. He reduces his expression into its most minimal form, keeping in mind the surface that he paints on as his patterns seem to flow over and within the walls and canvas. The artist’s marks are more often than not unplanned and instinctual, work that he hopes the viewer will infuse with their own narrative. By combining a minimalist aesthetic and often purposefully minimal materials, he seeks to create affecting work with maximum impact.

Aaron De La Cruz (b.1980, based in San Francisco Ca) [@aarondelacruz]

Sometimes a simple mark etched on a tree is as powerful as a masterpiece in a museum. It is this minimalist nature and his need to create with the least possible amount of mediums that makes Aaron De La Cruz’s work so unique. He constantly battles for perfection with every mark he makes and that often leads to the misperception that it is machine made. To the contrary, his work is a free flow of ideas on surface that streams at a constant pace from his skilled hands. The goal of his work is to make the biggest mark on society with the bare minimum of mediums. A simple mark etched on the world.  @powwowlongbeach

Aaron De La Cruz is artist/designer born in Los Angeles and raised in Fresno, California who is best known for his minimal yet cryptic approach — one which bridges the realms of graffiti and illustration. His work finds strengths in the reduction of his interests in life to minimal information.

But it’s also brand, and beyond a brand — fine art blends with street, pop, conceptual and appropriation art with razor’s edge, using contemporary commerce as a model and as as contextual base for the art, it’s manufacturing and its marketing, commenting on social stratification. In an interview at his studio Paul/DOC explains: “I don’t want to be the focus... My work is commenting on society and art systems. It’s my role as an artist to maintain manufacturing habits...I’m not an activist. I just give you what you want.”

Working under the alias Desire Obtain Cherish (D.O.C.), Jonathan Paul emerged as a street artist in the early 2000s. Merging street, pop, conceptual, and appropriation art, D.O.C.’s cast resin sculptures are marked by a subversive edge, satirizing status symbols and revealing a commerce-driven social conscience. A stint at an advertising agency helped D.O.C. understand the psychology of communication and contributed to his marketing-driven ideas and artistic style, which boasts a glossy, modern finish and unexpected juxtapositions. His “Designer Drugs” (2013) series, for example, addresses the concept of a “shopper’s high” by featuring luxury brand logos on pill packets. “Heresy’s Cross” (2013) consists of crucifixes made of melting Hershey’s chocolate bars; the series calls attention to contemporary objects of worship. @unixgallery

D*Face ( London, based in London  uk) [@dface_official]

Drawing inspiration from New York’s pioneering graffiti scene of the 1970s and ’80s, British street artist D*Face has painted walls all over the world with his incisive, Pop-inflected murals that critique the modern world, in particular consumerism and the American Dream. In past works he has appropriated familiar cartoon figures such as Mickey Mouse and Hello Kitty—dissecting them with images like skulls or economic signifiers—and created portraits of icons like Jimi Hendrix and Kurt Cobain. “Thematically my work always draws upon personal experiences, whether that’s the saturation of media in our lives, our fascination with celebrity and stardom or more singular experiences such as the loss of loved ones,” D*Face says. Although he has increasingly shown at galleries, he approaches these sites with the same anarchic energy as his in situ works in public spaces. @dface_official

Working with a variety of mediums and techniques, he uses a family of dysfunctional characters to satirise and hold to ransom all that falls into their grasp – a welcome jolt of subversion in today’s media-saturated environment.
His aim is to encourage the public not just to ‘see’, but to look at what surrounds them and their lives, reflecting our increasingly bizarre fascination for with celebrity, fame, consumerism and materialism, re-thinking, reworking and subverting imagery drawn from a refuge of decades of materialistic consumption, imagery appropriated from currency, advertising, comic books, these now iconic motifs, cultural figures and genres are subverted to comment upon our conspicuous society.  @stolenspacegallery

Beginning with extended planning and engineering of four to six inch maquettes, the artist works toward a compositional conclusion he deems worth realizing in large scale. Leather hinges allow him to fold canvas-covered panels into spatial forms that mimic both midcentury minimalism and Japanese design, and it is from the 3/4 vantage point that his works may be at their best. Moreland combines his materials with the goal of achieving aesthetic synthesis, while allowing the inherent characteristics of each to remain intact.  @librarystreetcollective

Jordan “Pose" Nickel, (b. 1980 Evanston, Illinois, based in Chicago, Illinois) [@tenderj] 
Jordan Nickel, aka POSE, began making graffiti in 1992. In the years since then, he has expanded his vigorous career to include gallery shows of his mixed-media paintings and works on paper, trips around the world to tag with other graffiti artists, and the cofounding of a creative agency, We Are Supervision, that focuses on large-scale, hand-painted signs and murals. “I’m stoked man, every day is like a freebie right now,” he once said about his career. Inspired by the streets, fellow graffiti artists, cartoons, and pop art, his compositions—whether on a wall or on canvas—burst with bright color, energy, and a pileup of fragmented, overlapping images. Humor meets violence in POSE’s works, which may contain references to crime, cops, and destruction next to images of bananas, melting ice-cream cones, or open sardine tins.

Jordan “Pose" Nickel, (b. 1980 Evanston, Illinois, based in Chicago, Illinois) [@tenderj] Jordan Nickel, aka POSE, began making graffiti in 1992. In the years since then, he has expanded his vigorous career to include gallery shows of his mixed-media paintings and works on paper, trips around the world to tag with other graffiti artists, and the cofounding of a creative agency, We Are Supervision, that focuses on large-scale, hand-painted signs and murals. “I’m stoked man, every day is like a freebie right now,” he once said about his career. Inspired by the streets, fellow graffiti artists, cartoons, and pop art, his compositions—whether on a wall or on canvas—burst with bright color, energy, and a pileup of fragmented, overlapping images. Humor meets violence in POSE’s works, which may contain references to crime, cops, and destruction next to images of bananas, melting ice-cream cones, or open sardine tins. @matthewnamourgallery •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• •••••••••• Help us share your art with the world and repost us 🌏 •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Please tag #buffedmag  and follow us @buffedmag 👈🏼 for a chance to be featured

As his work evolves, so do POSE’s methods of encouraging people to let their imaginations run wild. “I get very obsessed with the work that I create. It yanks me out of bed early in the morning and doesn’t let me sleep at night. I get really high from the relationship I get with a body of work.” Seeing more than just the value of the walls in a gallery setting, POSE has added three-dimensional installations to his repertoire. The result is an experiential art environment that the viewer can live and walk through.@romanfineart

Jordan “Pose" Nickel, (b. 1980 Evanston, Illinois, based in Chicago, Illinois) [@tenderj] 
Named “One to Watch” by CNN in 2015, modern pop artist Jordan Nickel (POSE) has been applauded for his inventive ability to take everyday objects and ideas and successfully communicate something deeper. His attempt to make sense of the environment around him started with young rebellion and has matured into a body of work that is a pop blend of illustration, lettering and comic book aesthetics. While his work relies on harnessing very simple human emotions like love, loss and triumph, these feelings are presented in a complex union of vivid colors and a layered application. As of late, Jordan’s newest collection of works offers a radical departure from maximally collaged elements into more direct, pared down imagery, and the result is intriguing - mature, poised, and candid. Having exhibited his works at galleries spanning the globe – including Dubai, London, New York, Detroit and Los Angeles – his diversity as a visual artist is also apparent in grandiose outdoor settings on six different continents. Museums have also taken notice, including the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit and the Museum of Contemporary Art Denver. His aim to promote community engagement and outreach has received press from the likes of The New York Times, BBC News, Vanity Fair and Forbes. @librarystreetcollective

Sarah Morris (b. 1967 Sevenoaks, Kent, Uk  based in New York, NY) [@sarahmorris001] 
Morris began her career making graphic paintings that adapted the dramatic, emotive language used in newspaper and advertising tag lines. Her city-based paintings are executed in household gloss paint on square canvases, employing rigorous, all-over grids that reference architectural motifs, signs or urban vistas. Their vivid colours derive from each city’s unique vocabulary and palette, but, most importantly, its dynamic. In her film work, Morris both seduces and alienates the viewer, employing different kinds of cinematography, from documentary recording to seemingly set-up narrative scenarios.@berggruengallery

Sarah Morris is an internationally recognized painter and filmmaker, known for her complex abstractions, which play with architecture and the psychology of urban environments. Morris views her paintings as parallel to her films - both trace urban, social and bureaucratic topologies. In both these media, she explores the psychology of the contemporary city and its architecturally encoded politics. Morris studied at Brown University where she received a BA in 1989, and at Cambridge. She was a participant in the Whitney Independent Study Program. @petzelgallery

Sarah Morris (b. 1967 Sevenoaks, Kent, Uk  based in New York, NY) [@sarahmorris001]

Titled after Carlos Diegues’ ground-breaking film from the 1970s that encapsulated a key moment in the modernization of contemporary Brazil, the work in this exhibition focused on the country on the eve of another era of dramatic change. Morris describes her paintings and filmmaking – parallel activities within her practice – as a way of investigating, tracing and playing with ‘urban, social and bureaucratic typologies’. In Rio (2012), Morris’ eleventh film, she depicts the multifarious and complex layers of this most contradictory of cities, from its highly orchestrated and eroticized surface image, to the infinite realities of its vast urban sprawl, industrial production and the minutiae of its day-to-day living. Johanna Burton has described Morris’ films as being characterized by a ‘pulsing, nervous, chromatic attention’ and in this film, her camera wanders flaneur-like through Rio’s Ipanema beach, hospitals, iconic modernist architecture, football stadiums, factories and favelas

Victor Solomon (b. 1981 Boston, MA, based in Los Angeles, CA) [@victorsolomon]

He elegantly balances wit, irony and fastidious craftsmanship in exploration of a host of disparate narratives: the religious devotion to sport, the athlete as modern-day king of court, the proletarian drift of basketball from project pick-up games to newfound cultural heights, even a cautionary comment on the fragility of luxury. For Solomon, the medium is the message; having never had worked with stained glass before, he apprenticed for a year under Bay Area glass masters to realize this process-specific concept. The result is a gorgeous and evocative appropriation of basketball iconography, rendered with an athlete’s discipline: Solomon spends over 100 hours on each piece. @joseph_gross_gallery

From as early as 600 AD, it’s rare materials and exhaustive process have made stained glass a paramount symbol of wealth and power. Throughout the 12th century, stained glass windows adorning monolithic cathedrals flexed on behalf of a manors reign. The irony of the embellishment: removing the window’s intended function. HIs newest series, “Literally Balling” appropriates luxury material and antiquated processes to parallel a history of impractical grandeur. Literally Balling is the result of Solomon’s year-long apprenticeship under the last remaining stained-glass masters and hundreds of hours of fastidious, historically accurate craftsmanship. @guyhepner

Kelly Graval, better known by his graffiti tag RISK, was one of the first artists to exhibit graffiti and street art in galleries. With a background in fine art, Graval has a style defined by cleanly executed lettering paired with graphic imagery and architectural lines. He has participated in a number of street art crews, most famously West Coast Artists (WCA) and the Seventh Letter. In the course of his nearly 30-year career, Graval has become one of the most influential figures for subsequent generations of graffiti artists, particularly in Los Angeles. He is also considered one of the first artists to have painted on freight trains, as well as a pioneer of “painting in the heavens”—a graffiti term referring to highly elevated surfaces like billboards, rooftops, and overpasses. @weinstein.gallery.sf

Melbourne natives Dabs and Myla are a dynamic duo who have lived, worked and soaked in the sun of Los Angeles since 2009. Dabs started painting graffiti in 1995, and began teaching Myla the ropes of writing about ten years later, after they met while studying illustration in art school and fell in love. Soon afterward, they decided they liked their collaborative pieces better than their individual work, and from that point on, they worked together exclusively, as Dabs Myla. Inspired by graffiti, food, travel and their wonderful chaotic life together as a couple, their paintings play Dabs’ mischievous and sometimes ribald characters off Myla’s photorealistic cityscapes. Since their move to California, they have never spent more than a few hours apart. They say, “I guess we are pretty lucky… @thinktankdtla
