“Refined Grime” – a term often used to describe the work of LA / NY based artist, Bisco Smith. The “grime” is a blend of graffiti deconstruction, graphic design, and fine art which captures the untamed energy and uncharted environments of street style and expresses a sense of du- ality, spontaneity, and movement. Bisco is known for his bold, graphic, graffiti styles which can be seen not only on walls, but in books, on records, and in galleries around the globe. Smith’s aesthetic draws influences from his formal training at Pratt Institute and twenty plus years as a graffiti / street artist. Due to his diverse use of mediums he is able to walk the line between graphic design and fine art.
B. 1979 in Glendale, CA. Jason Drake aka Dfalt is an accomplished artist/producer who primarily works in audio and has recently returned to his practice in multidimensional mixed media work. His tools include acrylic, oil sticks, spray paint, high quality digital prints, resin, audio, and video. His work deals with the tension between our analog world and digital representations. He explores humanity’s desire for perfection and creation of systems that out perform their makers. The long-held taboo of crossing art and technology drives the inspiration behind Dfalt’s latest pieces.
Budman has a 20 year history of supporting and working with emerging and established artists within the walls of the Budman Studio. His beliefs in the collective experience where collaboration is cultivated and ideas are realized has helped build a solid creative community in Venice and beyond. His installation work focuses on space, dimension, and its affect on social interaction. This manifests itself into work that feels both nostalgic and familiar while firmly stating its presence and kindly commanding attention and interaction.
