Sun K. Kwak: Artist, New York
Sun K. Kwak is a multifaceted artist. One of Ms. Kwak’s signature mediums of expression, masking tape allows for each line to be a direct extension of the her intent as an artist. The result is a meditative study of the surrounding environment, a dialog between the spiritual and natural forces that we struggle to reconcile culture-wide. Her wall drawings can be found permanently installed in public and private spaces.
Beautiful art, made entirely out of masking tape. This is a must-see slideshow. http://is.gd/IfBN
“Changing the Art on the White House Walls.” Very interesting article via WSJ. Great interactive feature too.
Kate Bingaman-Burt: Graphic Artist, Mississippi
Kate Bingaman-Burt is an Assistant Professor of Graphic Design at Mississippi State University. She also is the founding partner of the Public Design Center. Kate’s work has been featured in The New York Times and in Print, Adorn, Dwell and How Magazine. Her work has been published in books like Hand Job! A Catalog of Type, The Artist’s Guide to Making Money, The Crafter Culture Handbook, and Becoming a Digital Designer.
She makes her painfully mundane purchases, well, irresistible, or at least gives us something to make us feel less self-conscious about how frequently we spend to fill the void. She is Obsessive Consumption. Obsessive Consumption started in 2002 when Kate decided to photograph all of her purchases and in turn created a brand out of the process to package and promote.
Artist Inspiration: I have been drawing my credit card statements every month since October of 2004. I am doing this until they are all paid off. This credit card used to hold a balance of almost $8,000. This print is of my October 2007 statement. At that time the balance was $434.17. It has since been paid off.

I came across Annie Vought’s Papercuts series and was instantly impressed by her talent. She elevates “writing” into a new art form by painstakingly cutting the script text out of letters and notes to create a typographic display of words and their shadows.
