STUDIO 5 - Shplinton
Quentin “Shplinton” Thomas is an artist, illustrator, graphic designer, and curator who has exhibited in galleries and museums within the L.A. and Inland Empire areas. With a psychedelic color palette caught somewhere between surrealist philosophy, AbEx painting, and skate + surf culture with a bit of art school kid tossed in, there is an entry point for a wide variety of audiences in his work.

STUDIO 6 - Ammon Rost
The primary focus of his practice is to broadcast spiritual fact through the pictorial image. Automatic painting, the practice of “letting the art pour out of you”, free from contrived statement, is the method at play in Ammon’s work. The method opens a portal to his unconscious, allowing for ethereal emotions to crossover onto the canvas. The emotional charge dictates the aesthetics and language of form and color, consequently allowing his painting to take on a life of its own while being conceived.

STUDIO 12 – Tslil Tsemet
Tslil Tsemet is a painter, sculpture, and a Tattooer based in Los Angeles, Ca.
"Through Art I examine the human species based upon the social and cultural values to which it is bond, and to those ideals we grasp in order to maintain our sanity. Therefore, I paint and sculpt with the use of symmetrical composition, and blur the line between Kitsch and Sacrament, and thus I sanctify so called amoral, secular, modern situations. The works play a role of mythological illustration, where the modern, western mind completes the tale."
