Bruce Munro: Lighting Designer, England
In the March/April 2009 issue of Azure Magazine, there is a spotlight on Bruce Munro. After reading the brief description of his glowing landscape for the Eden Project in London, I found his work to be fascinating, so I did what we all here at Wall Art do best, researched! Although this exhibition ends today, I think everyone should go to his website and read about his inspiration and view his portfolio filled with lighting sculptures and installations. www.brucemunro.co.uk

Tyler Shields: Photographer, Los Angeles
I first saw Tyler’s work when a close friend suggested I check him out. After spending a long period of time on his website it was clear to me why he is one of Hollywood’s most sought after photographers. What I enjoy most about Tyler’s work is his sole style; combining indie rock and urban modernism with a certain aspect of flare and charm.
