Alberto Murillo's art is strong, soulful, and colorful showcasing the juxtaposition of order found within chaos. Colombian American artist America Martin&rsquo;s bold lines and vibrant color palette found within her Native American series are reflective of Andy Warhol. The Native American paintings were inspired by her visit to the enormous Pow-Wow in Taos, New Mexico.&nbsp; The series portrays a visual story of the people who come together to celebrate, to commemorate and to remember.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Belgian Artist Anja Van Herle's figurative paintings are inspired by both classic and contemporary fashion while exploring issues of identity, emotion and human interrelationships. &nbsp;Annie Vought an artist based in Oakland, California. Vought finds inspiration in both the organic world and the built environment, imbuing her cut paper pieces with a richly woven series of patterns, lines, and words that recall the chaotic experience of contemporary life. While there is an intimate quality to each of these artists&rsquo; work, the universality of their themes allow them to resonate with many.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>The arresting palettes and vigorous compositions of British artist Anthony Hunter allow for works that are both emotionally powerful and visually captivating. Hunter, who has been immersed in the art world as an art fabricator for Damien Hirst, dazzles viewers with his contemporary twist on abstract expressionism. Marjorie Strider emerged on the New York Art Scene in the 1960&rsquo;s. Strider&rsquo;s three-dimensional paintings and soft-sculpture installations place the techniques of <a href="" rel="nofollow">Minimalism</a> within the Pop Art movement. Inspired by images of pin-up girls, Strider&rsquo;s paintings carved from wood, foam, and urethane placed her Pop culture subjects within a medium-centered realm.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Figurative artist Pedro Bonnin approaches his subjects in a highly skillful, photorealistic manner. Bonnin is remarkable for his deft handling of oil paint, but what further distinguishes him is his rare ability to create moods. His darkly comic figures frequently border on the absurd. Robert Mars&rsquo; artwork chronicles an evolving fascination with the Golden Age of American popular culture celebrating the icons of the 1950&rsquo;s and 60&rsquo;s by taking inspiration from this culture long past. By using symbols from mass media culture &ndash;whether the flag, classic film stars, or logos of popular brands &ndash; Mars both critiques our culture&rsquo;s fascination with celebrity and consumerism, while indulging his own nostalgia for America&rsquo;s golden age of advertising. Deeply influenced by Pop Art, Mars appropriates vintage ephemera into striking new forms that invite the viewer to question their own relationship to these symbols.</p> <p>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;</p> <p>The Pacific Northwest duo Stallman, Stephen Stum and Jason Hallman, partners in art and life, are pioneering an innovative technique using canvas and paint as sculpture, taking a traditional medium and turning it on its head giving canvas the leading role. They sculpt in separate locations within the piece simultaneously, then switch places and respond to each other&rsquo;s movements creating a dynamic dialog within the composition. This union of minds dissolves the boundaries of possibility turning the ordinary into the extraordinary. We feel this is a strong representation of contemporary works by a varied group of artists...that go "POP".</p> <p align="center"><strong><em>&nbsp;</em></strong></p> <p align="center"><strong><em>These artists will inspire, provoke, engage and mesmerize.
