Marc Fresh is a local spray artist and devoted father. His works are heavily inspired by his angel, his daughter Asher. This series of angels and magnolias are works that he has longed to do but due to a heavy commission schedule, had been unable to develop. Viewing this exhibition as his chance to delve into his heart's desire, Fresh was finally able to execute these paintings. He has not forgotten his playful side with the Mickey Mouse assemblage cut-out, though of course still tempered by the weight of a boxer portrait.
Many photographers will, in an attempt to capture a moment, orchestrate photo-shoots with costumed models and sets. Kelly C. Tate prefers to possess the moment.

Miguel Angel Belinchon Bujes (Belin) began his art career as a graffiti artist tagging his city of Linares, Spain as a youth. Belin loved the street art he saw regularly; he viewed it as beauty made available for the public. This inspired him to create that of his own. Today, Belin exhibits throughout the world. With masterful dexterity, Belin traverses medium and technique from painting and sculpture to clothing. One constant is his superhero theme. In the words of Belin, “We all have the capacity for greatness...somewhere inside all of us lies a real superhero.”
