MEET THE ARTISTS FROM:
Joe Louis Molina
Born in Arizona, Joe Louis Molina has lived in Colorado for over 30 years. A poverty-stricken childhood motivated Joe to move toward an artistic path of self-expression. As an ongoing student of the raku art form of Japanese pottery, Joe is most attracted to the colors and brilliance that are produced through the process of raku. Most of his pieces are created at his home studio where he enjoys experimenting with various shapes, sizes, and glazes. In addition to his pottery, he is also a mutli-medium artist who creates large scale paintings and acquires inspiration from photography. Each work that he creates is a unique piece of artwork that comes from his heart. When not creating his artwork, Joe is a DJ and enjoys coaching, building, landscaping, organic gardening, mentoring high-risk youth, and adventuring.
I was born in the beautiful island of Puerto Rico, where he lived for 18 years until I graduated college with a Bachelors degree in Fine Arts (BFA) from the University of Puerto Rico (Rio Piedras) in 1992. He is showing a series entitled "Dollpera", filled with variations and mediums, combining fine arts and graphic design and introducing one of my newest passions, the world of Opera. The series is in process and could be endless...Keep coming back to see which new characters are part of the" Dollpera"
Featured At M.O.M.A
Anthony Daniel Stevenson was born in 1988 in Brooklyn, New York. When he attended his early years in High School, and also the Saturday program at Cooper Union; he began to realize his passion for the world of art. He found much value in conventional and non-conventional mediums which is recycled materials. His work is in three different styles such as, Abstract, impressionism, and cubism.
Since his emergence he has been featured at several art galleries thought out New York City including the Museum Of Modern Art, MOMA. He continues to work hard at his young and very promising art career.
Ian Costello is a Brooklyn based painter and illustrator working primarily with oil and watercolor paints to create urban environments and human forms.
“To practice any art, no matter how well or badly, is a way to make your soul grow. So do it.” This statement, by one of my favorite authors, Kurt Vonnegut, rings true to me on many levels. To me, practicing art releases the energy the soul thrives on; art is about creation, connection and energy, and is powerful because it can evoke so many different reactions from both the artist and the viewer.
Most recently I have been working on a series of oil portraits, each painted in a different monochromatic color scheme. This collection as a whole also explores the nature of confrontation between the viewer and the pieces; instead of simply contemplating the paintings, the viewer is also confronted by the faces looking straight back at them, which can elicit an unnerving awareness of being observed. This series, in part, will be displayed in Cranky’s, a restaurant in Long Island City, NY, this upcoming July.
Anastasia Teper is originally from a small Russian town, with a gypsy heritage, rich in color and stories. She has traveled extensively up until the age of 14 when she moved to Brooklyn, New York. Since then most of Anastasia’s time goes into making art as well as finding new themes for ongoing creative work. Anastasia’s themes always change as people and lives usually do, always trying to advance, adapt, find new truths and revelations-
“My present creative theme is about “re-thinking”
Kailee Winslow grew up in the small town of Telluride, CO, but in recent years has moved to Manchester, MA, right outside Boston. She attended Pomfret School, a boarding school in CT, where she found her passion for black and white photography. Since then she has gone on to study at Hobart and William Smith Colleges studying studio art with a concentration in Photography.
She greatly enjoys documentary photography, as well as, portraits. She has done various projects ranging from documenting the streets of Boston, to her own family members, to even faculty members within her high school. She hopes to continue her work and hopefully one day become a photojourn
Christina Quillen was born in Korea but raised all of her life in Wilmington, Delaware. As a child, attend Philadelphia University to pursue a degree in fashion design. She received her Cosmetology license in spring of 2005 and hasn't stopped doing hair since.
In between hours at the salon and struggles to move to the big apple, Christina began to create her first piece of artwork. Her first collage called "The Transition" which marks a time period in her life, a time period in which all of us pass through at several times throughout our own lives, where she was living in comfort but craving the achievement of her dream.
Christina currently lives in the NYC, living her dream as a hairstylist for Sally Hershberger by day and creating inspiring artwork by night.
