Gus was born and raised in the cold mountains of Pennsylvania where he started his art career in 1999 by painting on an old dictionary.
He pulled from a dumpster. By turning nothing into something Gus adapted his own unique style that mixes nightmares, emotions and creative ideas.
He has since turned his artwork into multiple toy lines, fashion, video games, jewelry and more. In 2016 Gus started writing and directing short films.
The starting point for his work is to pull new ideas out from the universe and place them onto the canvas of choice.
His goal is to innovate all aspects of the arts and entertainment industries so that there can be a global shift of not accepting mediocrity.
S.ALVES is the artistic name of Sérgio Alves de Oliveira. He was born in 1958, Rio de
Janeiro, Brazil, where he began the artistic studies at Escola de Belas Artes in 1976.
Over the last 10 years, S.ALVES has sought a new way of painting contextualizing with a cross-sectional view between real and abstract. With this starting point, he has sought to develop a different style of painting, which it defines as 'SUBJECTIVE EXPRESSIONISM'.
S.ALVES personal vision leads him to a different way of looking at contemporary painting.
S.ALVES begins to develop what he believes to be a new style, named "The Subjectivity of Painting in Expressionism" or "The Subjective Expressionism". This is because S.ALVES understands that figurative drawing, geometrical drawing of objects, drawn landscape and still life are artistic concepts, which in modern times and in collective movement thinking are losing space for the new generations in which everything is disposable.
S.ALVES seeks, through painting, to follow this actual tendency and the way of seeing things, from the old and new generations, as everything being considerably Subjective. This is "The Subjective Painting in Expressionism".
Humberto Poidomani was born in Argentina. For over twenty years, Poidomani has developed an artistic career centered on ideological notions of societal crisis, ecology, life/death, poverty, which he develops through complex assemblages, sculptures, paintings, boxes and objects, and videos. He creates in his works a dense compound of repurposed industrial and found materials mixed with thick gestural highly textured and colored brushstrokes, intercrossed with personal and literary word references. Echoing the provocative stanza of the arte povera and in a spirit of subversion, Poidomani creates absurd and comical overlapping combinations of wires, objects, rocks, fabrics with an individual high subjectivity. He points out to the diffraction of our culture and the lack of Utopias in contemporary times.
Poidomani has presented his works in museums, galleries and art fairs. His solo shows include a retrospective in the Contemporary Art museum of Salta, Salta Province, Argentina; E.C.A. Contemporary Spaces of Art, Mendoza, Argentina, Museo Centro Cultural Borges Buenos Aires Argentina. He has participated in curated shows in Spain, Miami and Buenos Aires and several International Art Fairs . He lives between Buenos Aires, Argentina, and Miami, Florida.
