Simply coining Fernando Pintado as a painter is a mockery of the word. Hailing from San Juan, Puerto Rico, this multi-faceted creative uses silk-screen canvases and acrylics to illustrate his world of Alternative Rock and Free verse poetry. The imagery from his works and videos couple seemlessly with his pieces; capturing the audience's attention.

Palletes, patterns, and shapes. Alone, they exist as the basic building blocks of Art. But put these tools in the hands of an exceptional creative, and you have the beginnings of something special.
We introduce you to Art by Jasber.
Amanda Rothschild recieved her BFA in Painting with minors in Art History and Anthropology from Washington University in St. Louis. She now lives in New York City as she continues to produce amazing pieces while working at The Met (Metropolitan Museum of New York).
Her paintings, primarily done in oil, focus on emphasizing and beautifying otherwise mundane places and objects through the physicality of a painted surface. She works with overlooked objects, often those found in an average home, including microwaves and countertops, especially focusing on sinks and drains. These paintings use areas of abstraction combined with areas of precise detail that give these objects a life and narrative separate from their original utilitarian usage. During her years at Washington University in St. Louis she has been featured in a number of student shows including Knuckle Knuckle: a Junior Painting show, and Community Visuals: A Student Exhibition in Two Dimensions. She has served as both treasurer and president of the Art School Council and was an active member of the Undergraduate Council, while also serving on the Undergraduate Experience Committee. She was nominated for the Eileen Battell Stoeckel fellowship in the spring of 2013 and received the Eda L. and Clarence C. Cushing Memorial Prize in Painting in 2013. Prior to her managing role at The Met, Amanda worked as a Studio Assistant in the studio of St. Louis based artist John Sarra and worked as a Museum Teaching Intern at the Saint Louis Art Museum.

JAY DAVIS - Jay Davis is an emerging, self-taught artist born and raised in Washington, DC. Jay discovered his love for art at the age of 8 when he created his first abstract piece that still hangs in the home of his proud parents.
Jay creates vivid abstract paintings with a contemporary flair, specializing in acrylics and textured art designs on canvas. He loves bold color, and enjoys using some very unique textures that gives his abstract work a powerful presence. Jay finds his inspiration in his many life experiences.
Growing up in a middle class home, Jay excelled in sports, especially soccer and basketball. Unfortunately he opted for a fast paced lifestyle which exposed him to adventure and risk as he witnessed crime, betrayal, separation and tragedy. This environment helped shape and develop his intense love for his craft.
Art became his refuge later in life and has now developed into his passion. Jay’s life experiences have given him a colorful outlook on life, which is vividly displayed in his work. A steady stream of friends and acquaintances along with word of mouth, have created quite a buzz around Jay’s art work. Corporations and private collectors up and down the east coast have commissioned his work and now he is proud to be able to share his talent with the world. (source:Facebook)
