Allison Tinati, who paints under the moniker 'Hueman', grew up drawing and painting in Northern California, and received her degree in Design | Media Arts from UCLA. Whether she is creating delicate visions on canvas, or crushing massive walls with a spray can, she often draws on the human condition to create colorful mash-ups of the abstract and figurative, and the beautiful and grotesque. Hueman's unique freestyle process involves creating tightly refined compositions from a spontaneous beginning of paint splashes, drips, and sprays. Through this method she is interested in creating tactile dimension and motion on flat, two-dimensional surfaces. Companies such as Nike, L’Oreal, Universal Pictures, Lionsgate Films, and MTV have all tapped Hueman for her bold-but-delicate unique style, and her layered works can be seen on public walls and in galleries worldwide.
Hueman was one of the main design and artistic collaboraters to Artthaus Studios.

Painter, Sculptor, Illustrator
Born and raised in Philadelphia, Jason Byrd, 26, graduated with a B.A. in Studio Arts in 2014. Part action painter, part mixed media sculpture, part illustrator, there is no single way of working or medium he ascribes to. He explores themes such as contemporary Black male culture, Consumerism and Capitalism, and dualities such as perspective/permanence, and innocence/ignorance. Through his own nuanced personal practice and with references to artists of multiple disciplines both past and present, he aims to synthesize his ideas surrounding family dynamics and personal history with contemporary issues and world hisory. Many of his works and series incorporate the idea of repurposing and realizing multiple interpretations, or perspectives, of every inch of life. At its heart his process is an ongoing investigation of the human condition through the embodied research of mind, body, and spirit.

Dee Lee Fine Art
After years of working in a advertising and high tech, transitioning to a career in fine art was a lifelong dream. I returned to school and studied painting and drawing at California College of the Arts.
In my paintings, I capture the individuality of ordinary objects by representing them in larger-than-life-size scale. I think of these paintings as character studies or portraits whether they are inanimate objects or actual people. Working at a larger scale allows me to depict the details that individualize the subject so that they become individuals with personal attributes, interesting in their own uniqueness. As sitters posing for the pictures they complement each other in their differences, relating to one another as distinct individuals.
I’ve simplified the settings and diffused the lighting to create a sense of luminous calm and serenity. As I paint, I focus on distinctive elements like the textures of the organic forms, the flesh of fruit, the subtleness of hair and skin or the reflectivity of glass, using traditional oil media to produce smooth, blended, seemingly effortless surfaces. The play of color, light and shape synthesize into an image more real than reality in its observed detail.
