Name: Dave Webb Aka Davemarkart

Location: Arizona

Start date: Been painting for over 10 yrs.
been customizing for about 4 yrs.

Influence: My influences… Music. Don’t think I could create without it.  Always been a fan of Tara McPhersons work… As well as Tim Burton.
Both artists work has always captivated me.

Effect: My “Fragile am I” character would be that character that I think might make people think twice. And realize we are all fragile and even a small break destroys the structure.

Long run: Would love more than anything to create full time. (I already do but I still have a 40hr day job as well) so that’s my goal to do this Full Time and this only.  If nothing more because people appreciate the work I put into art. And Nobody gives a shit at the day job. I’m just a number.

Feature: Gold Poo

Name: Gold Poo
Location: NYC
Start date: Fall 2013 for this project but I suppose I’ve always been artistic.
Influence: As an artist and art fan there are too many people to name that influence me.  In terms of painting poop I had really never seen it done before.  So when I ran the idea of spray painting dog shit gold by a few close friends and got good feedback, I decided to actually run with the idea.  It is great to have people in your corner making sure you don’t do too many dumb things.  I can easily say I wouldn’t be doing this without the support of the people around me.  I have really awesome friends.
Effect: First, I don’t want people to step in shit.  So I hope they see it.  Then, I hope people laugh.  But it actually is a metaphor.  People will all too often over value an item when in reality is just shit underneath.
Long run: I really don’t have a clue where this may take me, but I am having a lot of fun.  My hope is to one day have a serious one man show where I’m forced to take this concept to another level.  But until then, I’ll stick to playing in the streets.

Feature: K•NOR

Name: K•NOR

Location: Brooklyn, NY

Start date: Making art under my alias since 2013.

Influence: Horror movies, picture books, skate graphics and punk rock, combined with an unhealthy fascination with graffiti and a general appreciation for people who push their own imaginations.

Effect: Good or bad, I just want my art to have an effect on people. I think the worst art is the kind that you look at and don’t think twice about.  Ultimately I am telling my own story and doing what I love, so if I can get a stranger to relate to what I am trying to say or inspire them to push their own creativity– those are all bonus points in my book.

Long run:  My goal is to never stop challenging what I think I am capable of as an artist.  For me, this means getting outside of my comfort zone as much as possible and trying to express myself in unfamiliar ways that are not guaranteed to work. Over the next few years I want to paint more, paint bigger, continue collaborating with people that inspire me and fail as often as I succeed.  Before I am dead and buried I want everyone to know my name.

Name: Mathew Curran

Location: North Carolina & Los Angeles

 Start Date:
I have always been involved in art as far as I can remember. I studied art throughout high school and received a degree in fine art & design in college.
While learning through school, I spent just as much time learning in the streets and will always continue to learn and develop. It’s what I love :)
Influence:
My influence was my surrounding friends. Watching and learning different techniques in graffiti, stencil work & printmaking. I was always in the library reading books like “Getting Up” by Craig Castleman & fascinated by works by Joan Miro and others.
Effect:
I like to bring nature back into the urban setting. Bringing it back into decaying areas of the city as well as peoples homes.
It’s my way of fighting urban sprawl.
Long run:
I’d like to be able to continue to do what I love, continue to learn and to share with others.

Name: kaNO

Location: NYC/LA, bicoastal art hustling

Start date: I’ve been doing art ever since I can remember. It’s always been a part of my life.

Influence: My first major influence was my uncle. He drove a Cadillac, had tattoos, wore leather trench coats and was a really good artist. He was the coolest, RIP Uncle Jorge. Aside from that I was very fortunate to grow up around artists; all of the kids I skateboarded with where artists, they all tagged up, read comics and watched anime. I had older friends that would airbrush jackets and design club flyers, when they were to busy they’d send clients my way. I learned art could be a business at a very young age, because of that…I’ve never had a job in my life that wasn’t an art job.

Effect: In the most simplest terms… I think I want my work to affect people in the same way that good art affects me, I want a person to walk away from one of my art shows with a punch of inspiration to the face and swift kick of motivation to the ass. Go home and pick up a pencil, brush or spraycan, I want my work to make you make something!

Long run: I have no idea where my art will take me or what I’ll be doing in a few years, my current objective is to always stay creatively stimulated. I know I’d like to paint more walls, work on more apparel stuff, design a sneaker or two and maybe do a couple of lectures and stuff. I usually just go about my business, linking up with like-minded people and brands, before I know it… I’m working on something awesome that I never saw coming.
