Ibon Mainar uses visual multimedia to create whimsical and colorful work. Whether he is creating gifs, torn cardboard designs, Instagram videos, video projections onto foil and tinsel, or sculpting gum and popcorn, Mainar’s aesthetic is contemporary and playful. His interjections into Edward Hopper’s paintings create a curious juxtaposition of modern and contemporary aesthetics. With simplicity and humor, Mainar develops a visual language across various media that feels novel and universal. Mainar lives in San Sebastian, Spain.
Daphne Arthur explores religious expression and cultural identity through her mixed media design. It is in Arthur’s work where the two dimensional meets the three dimensional. You can catch a look at her work at New York City’s RARE Gallery exhibit lasting from October 14th through November 11th.
