Artist Spotlight: Christy Lee Rogers 

Christy Lee Rogers is a visual artist from Kailua, Hawaii. Her obsession with water as a medium for breaking the conventions of contemporary photography has led to her work being compared to Baroque painting masters like Caravaggio. Boisterous in color and complexity, Rogers applies her cunning technique to a barrage of bodies submerged in water during the night, and creates her effects naturally in-camera using the refraction of light. Through a fragile process of experimentation, she builds elaborate scenes of coalesced colors and entangled bodies that exalt the human character as one of vigor and warmth, while also capturing the beauty and vulnerability of the tragic experience that is the human condition.

Artist Spotlight: Jhonattan Arango

Hopefully you are following our Facebook page and Instagram feed, if so then you saw the focus on TAPE ART today. What is tape art you ask? Well it’s art…with tape, and it can get pretty intense! We were fortunate to find this gem in our submissions- some fun BEE THEMED tape art right here in our own backyard.

And are we biased to the bee theme? Of course we are, especially when it is an intricate bee tape mural by artist Jhonattan Arango. In the words of Nicole Belmonte, Co-Founder & Agent for Culture Climax - A Creative Agency;

‘Jhonattan Arango, known as Anon communicates his purpose and artistry through narrating stories of interconnectedness & unity using shapes and art forms.

In murals, this experience comes to life as he empowers the community to pick up a paintbrush and contribute to the creation of a collective masterpiece creating a colorful, cohesive union of contrasting triangles. Jhonattan’s curation of community murals invites participants to find their inner creative, let their guard down and relax into the artistic expression they thought they left back in school. Once dry, the tape is peeled off to reveal a co-created mural symbolizing a boost of culture and camaraderie within that community, business or building.’
