Lecia Dole-Recio, Mixed Media Artist, Los Angeles, California

Based in Los Angeles, Lecia Dole-Recio works in collage and mixed-media to create supremely elegant and vibrant abstractions that explore the play between translucency and opacity, inside and outside, light, color and materials.

Behold a trio of kids Trick-or-Treating as Architecture! Today, architecture blogArchitizer posted a Halloween-costume guide. Above, a photo of three NYC kiddos dressed as NYC architecture: (left to right) the Whitney Museum of American Art, designed by Marcel Breuer; the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright; and the New Museum, designed by Kazuyo Sejima and Ryue Nishizawa of the architectural firm SANAA.

Jennifer Stegmann, Painter, San Diego, California

Artist Statement: I am an art enthusiast on every front. I love to discover the work of other artists, and look at it in galleries and museums across the globe. I enjoy collecting art myself, but mostly I love to create it.

Most of my pieces would be described as urban, minimalist, abstract, simple, vibrantly colored, textured with layers of color. It is contemporary and of a high quality…My artistic training ranges from formal & professional to self study. I have practiced watercolor, oil & acrylic paintings, sculpture & photography. I love them ALL but have found my favorite form of expression is to create simple, abstract oils with the pallet knife.

Design is where science and art break even. Design is everything. It is about the details: style, usability, packaging, and so on!

Parvez Taj, Mixed Media Artist, Los Angeles

Parvez immediately caught our eye when we saw his reclaimed Douglas Fur slats with eco-friendly, non-solvent UV curable inks. The layered imagery, with the rough geometric bands of worn, color-drained wood overlaid with delicate washes of abstract, almost neon stain, creates a mysterious study in depth and contrast. It’s very easy to spot a Parvez Taj piece. His creations are hip, edgy and urban encompassing many cultures and emotions. The compositions are unnatural yet their harmony is perfect in every way. Parvez has dedicated his career to making beautiful art accessible. He uses water paints, photographs, software and UV cured inks to create his unique style of wall art – of which he is pioneering ultra violet ink technologies as a fine art medium.
