Max Neutra -
After spending five years developing his distinctive style while painting across Los Angeles and abroad, Max Neutra has made a name for himself as one today’s premier contemporary artists. He has risen to the international arena through sponsored tours across Europe and India, and has recently been awarded the first Guerilla Arts Foundation grant. Following his second consecutive sold out exhibition at C.A.V.E. Gallery on Abbott Kinney in Los Angeles, he continues to develop his art and explore new ways to bring his visions to the public. Riding the line between mayhem and control, Max creates images that are both chaotic and deliberate, each canvas an arena where chance and skill come together in a colorful fusion of iconic imagery. He has become known as an artist that thrives in a state continuous growth and experimentation, often employing new materials and technology. Utilizing his distinctive gonzo style, he explores the fading line between man and machine, the mysteries and methods of human communication, and the beauty and wonder of the natural world. www.maxneutra.com

Angelina Christina
Fine artist, street artist, photographer and producer: Angelina’s unique talent lies within every image she constructs, in every single stroke of her brush, in every color she mixes, in every mystical story behind her work. Her education varies from a BFA in Art in from UCLA to NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts and the Art Center College of Design. Most recently, Angelina completed several paintings and window dressings exclusively for Christian Louboutin at Neiman Marcus Beverly Hills (the paintings have now become part of Neiman Marcus’ permanent collection). In September of 2011 she created the cover art for Rodrigo Y Gabriela’s latest album, “Area 52”. Angelina has also appeared as herself in several documentaries, films and most recently the music video for Van Hunt's latest single, "Eyes Like Pearls," which debuted in December on Rolling Stone.
Angelina is a process-oriented artist and her objective is to find the temporal and raw moments that define a lifetime and then cram all the details and nuances into one image. When she isn’t bound by professional commitments or finishing a painting in her studio you can find her wheat-pasting her drawings to the beautifully weathered and sun-stained city walls. http://www.christinaangelina.com

Jules Muck
Jules Muck started doing graffiti in Europe and great Britain almost twenty years ago. Muck began bombing in New York in the late 90s where she was discovered by Lady Pink who took her on as an apprentice for the next 4 years. At age 20 she was the first female graffiti artist invited to paint "The Wall Of Fame" at 106th and Park ave in Harlem. Under her tag name Muck she has shown at Tokyo Big Site, the Bronx Museum of Art, the Weisman Museum in Minneapolis and the Fuse Gallery in New York. She has been published in Ganz's Graffiti Women, Cey Adam's Definitions and both of the Murrays books Burning New York and Broken Windows. Since moving to LA almost 4 years ago and adding her first name Jules to the equation, Jules Muck has shown at The Pacific Design Center and Rivera Gallery in Hollywood. Her murals are prominent all over the Venice Beach area, where she lives and has her studio. Her works include a mural on Gelina restaurant featured in Food & Wine magazine and the Main St Lindsay Lohan portrait that received a large amount of press including a spotlight on Access Hollywood and an article in Newsweek's The Daily Beast. Muck is currently exhibiting new works at Lab Art Gallery in Hollywood. This summer along with exhibiting at the Laughing Goat in Boulder, Jules Muck is showing in Pasadena California and at Phantom Gallery in St. Louis.www.julesmuck.com
