- Fouhy My work as an art director, photographer, and digital concept creator has allowed me to grow an international following with a spectrum of imaginative endeavors that attempt to transform the internet into one big friendly neighborhood.Currently focusing on photography, I offer a unique take from behind the viewfinder, capturing words scrawled across pavement, handwritten on walls, and stated de facto on signage from around the world. By compiling the words I’ve found into new combinations, I provoke unforeseen sentiment and meaning through a series of (very) short (visual) stories.In all my work, I gravitate towards a theme of nostalgia, allowing those who view the work to tap into their own feelings and memories that may be provoked. This nostalgia may be brought on by a word or phrase photographed, the subject matter of of a url, or the items used in one of my curated living room installations.I currently reside in Boulder, traveling and exploring as extensively as possible.Relevant Links:
- Emma Balder
Emma Balder is a New England-bred visual artist with a BFA in Painting from the Savannah College of Art and Design. Emma was awarded a Staff Artist Fellowship at the Vermont Studio Center and was recently named a finalist of the Peripheral Vision Arts Foundation Prize Fellowship. She has received recognition in publications such as Art Maze Mag, Dialogist and Fresh Paint Magazine. Emma has exhibited both nationally and internationally and her works are included in private and public collections such as the Dave Bown Projects. Emma currently works and lives in Denver, Colorado.
Emma Balder’s sustainable art practice focuses on recontextualizing wasted material in an effort to preserve the natural environment and raise awareness of excessive waste. Manipulating and repurposing the studio waste she generates, as well as that from other makers, counteracts the instant gratification of mass production and consumption of the modern world. Through exploring and accentuating the colors and contours found in nature, she turns every mark into one with intention and purpose, mixing a colorful glimpse of reality with visions of a contemporary, sustainable world.For more information, visit:Continue reading →

- Robin Arthur Artist Statement:I am an artist specializing in joyful, colorful and contemporary animal portraits. As a native Texan, the imagery of the Southwest and abundance of Mexican culture in my background helps inform my uniquely bold style.My paintings embody a current cultural shift happening in the United States and are a reflection of the infusion of Mexican style into everyday lives of all Americans. They are fresh, bright, beautiful, passionate, and filled with the warmth and sunshine of Texas and the great Southwest.Typically, my portraits include design elements such as bones, flowers, ferns, butterflies, spiders, flower-rimmed eyes and starry skies. In recent years, I have begun painting in a more naturalistic style in order to even better capture the inner personality of each animal through its eyes and expression. My goal is to highlight their unique features in a way that reflects their cheerful quirks and therefore bring joy to my customers. Many have commented that my portraits translate the true essence of their pets to canvas and capture their personalities.My work can be found in private collections all over the United States, Mexico, Canada, and Europe.
- Cassandra Zook Artist Statement:“My creative process and artworks are influenced directly from my personal experiences as well as by the changing dynamics between culture, technology, and individuality in our ever-diversifying world. For me, art is a tool to be used directly as activism to start a conversation or cause a change in perspective.I focus on the juxtaposition of the handcrafted qualities of painting and the perfection of digital images. My process involves editing the coding of a picture on a computer, then painting the digitally edited results. The conversation is changed to how my hand reveals the impossibility of creating perfect lines. Social and political ideas/issues such as feminism and socioeconomic inequality stemming from my Quaker, pacifist roots is a dynamic I also explore.”Bio:Cassandra Zook is an artist working in oil painting, but also explores collage, mixed media, and woodworking. She currently lives and works in Denver, originating from a small town in Kansas. After receiving a Bachelor’s degree in Painting from the Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design, she now has a studio with 40 West Studios in Lakewood, CO.instagram: @cassie_sandraContinue reading →
- Aaron Best
The work of street artist Aaron David Best personifies a vibrant landscape of color, fusing movement and sound into a violent cacophony. Diving into the surreal and abnormal, Best deconstructs reality, plays with space and depth, saturates colors pallets, and intensifies rhythm and movement. Heavy color contrasts violently against equally vibrant characters, ideas, and themes. Best separates himself from social and political statements and instead focuses on bringing a unique perspective on reality. Pop surrealism, glitch art, graffiti, and illustration are some of his greatest visual art influences. Best enjoys combining two or more aspects of each medium into a single piece, creating a hybrid of the mediums. Best has stated he gains the majority of his influence through music: “My creative process always involves music. I gain the greatest influences of my work through it, specifically hip-hop and jazz.”

- Drew Sarka
Drew Sarka’s medical background influences his artwork. His landscape, equine and figurative oil paintings are crafted with intention and careful consideration for how light, shadow and form capture everyday life experiences and the simplicity and beauty of what Colorado has to offer.
Artist Statement:Continue reading →
“As a family doctor by day, my job is to take care of others. With my art, I attempt to do the same thing. Though I paint representational subjects, my intent is to convey a broad abstract concept in each of my paintings that are produced with compassion and care. My work is inspired by the simple beauty all around us, in what we experience every day. As a result, I hope to capture just some of life’s joys and pleasantries in my work and daily life.”
- Mike Rogers
“My name is Mike Rogers and I’m a local artist and art teacher here in Colorado. I work at Adams City High School up in Commerce City and I’ve been there for over 7 years. I recently decided that it is time for me to take the advice that I give to my students which is to always follow you’re dreams. My goal is to be a professional artist alongside teaching and I was hoping you could help me in my journey.
I consider myself to be a graffiti style artist who paints pictures of alternative models. I’ve always enjoyed painting people with dyed hair, tattoos, and piercings because I feel that they have already turned themselves into a work of art, however, a lot of times, these individuals are viewed as being uncanny, abnormal, and unapproachable. I find these people to be the most interesting. These are my people. But I don’t paint models simply because they have a particular fashion sense. The people I paint tend to evoke some sort of feeling that I can relate to. It might be the look in their eye or the way they carry themselves, but somehow, this person is telling us a story and my paintings offer a glimpse into their world.
Currently I show my artwork in a variety of galleries in Denver and I also share my work on social media along with my website www.lifeofmike.com. So far, I feel like I have been pretty successful with this endeavor and I know that it has inspired many of my students to pursue their dreams as well.Continue reading →
- Denver Artist Profile: Caleb Hahne
By Scott Bailey
Welp, have to confess feeling a little late to party. After getting lots of attention from national art outlets like Juxatpoz, Hi-Fructose, and Platinum Cheese and being named one of the 10 People To Watch in 2015 by Westword, I am finally catching on to how awesome Caleb Hahne is.
Despite only being one year out of school, Caleb is an absolute fixture in the Denver art scene, showing at a number of galleries and being an ever present supporter of other artists by attending their shows. However, Caleb has branched out beyond The Mile High City, and in the first half of 2015 he has already had shows at some of the nation’s most prestigious exhibiting spaces including Soze Gallery, Modern Eden, and Athen B. Gallery. But he hasn’t forgotten his home town: we will be treated to two upcoming shows this weekend right here in the 303 starting with a 5-person show titled “Nothng Belongs To Us” at Rule Gallery opening July 10th, then one day later (July 11th) a solo show titled “Eveninig Ceremonies” at the Svper Ordinary Gallery. You can count on 1/1 for coverage, hope to see you at both shows!

Gold monarch butterflies invoke my mind, a million and one different moments fuel my spirit. And suddenly a different world takes me home. With animals with crowns, with saints not yet born . Suddenly it comes out of me like a dream thats been hiding in me for so long. All my pain and wounds seem to fade. And a world comes to surface within my hands, and those butterflies give me kisses to keep moving on…Continue reading →

- Rashelle Stetman
The way we perceive one another, the intensity of a relationship and what that would look like in a still moment on paper is what drives me as an artist. I work primarily in pen, graphite, oils, and color pencil. My subject matter consists of a series of realistically rendered portraits incorporating both internal and external features. My works utilize extreme detail through the use of illustrating then using oils to create depth and transparent color into the wood.
Portraiture can communicate strong emotions when incorporating the effects the model and I have on one another. While selecting the most prominent individuals who have touched my life, my portraiture has conceptually developed on a more profound level.
I am captivated by the human body, especially our heads and heart which hold our most sacred thoughts and emotions. Being fascinated with the human condition in which we live our lives, I strive to create work through my vision of all we encompass.

- Adrienne DeLoe
My interest in creating nature themed artwork is founded on my love of nature and the desire to create works that exude beauty and wonder. I use materials that reflect the elements of our inspiring environment including seedpods, pressed flowers and encaustic.
I consider each piece of artwork that I create to be a microenvironment. A place where my imagination gives way to fantastical landscapes which present the illusion of having grown all on their own. I strive to invent work that offers the viewer a sense of whimsy, while simultaneously invoking a feeling of peculiarity.
Our beautiful planet provides me with continuous inspiration as well as the source for much of my medium. I am deeply concerned about our environment and my art is an outlet for me to call attention to the power and splendor of nature.

- Ozi Magaña
Drawing from a multitude of cultural, institutional, and fantastical influences Ozi Magaña strives to create a body of work that is as diverse as it is unique. His artistic style is heavily influenced by classical figure painting and contemporary illustration. This is a man who isn’t afraid to show you his technical skill and childhood heroes simultaneously. Growing up on a healthy diet of comic books and cartoons Ozi knew almost immediately uponn entering this world that he wanted to create visual imagery. Once out of high school he began a serious pursuit in the study of anatomy, to better understand the dynamic work he was so intent on creating. Lost he became upon the study of light displayed by the likes of Carravagio and Goya and through their work learned a new found love for the level of drama paintings could possess.
Eventually Ozi would go back to his childhood obsession of the super heroic. He would begin to break apart and recombine these classic tales with his own heritage in order to show that these stories and characters were universal, timeless even. Why couldn’t there be a spider-esque avenger swinging through the jungles and pyraminds of the pre-columbian world? How much would the civil rights movement have changed if Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. could read minds or if Malcolm X could manipulate metal? These are worlds Ozi dreams of living in and ones he is determined to bring into reality albeit on a visual scale.
Ozi believes in a diversity of disciplines. While his main focus has been oil painting he also uses acrylics, gouache, watercolors, pen and ink, pastels, charcoal, graphite, mixed media and spraypaint. He also wants to incorporate more sculpture and installation into his work to help push his paintings into a new direction.Continue reading →
- Andrea Gordon
“My name is Andrea Gordon. I was born and raised in Denver and still live in this incredible place. Art is not just about aesthetic beauty but also about the importance of possibilities and the affirmation of living an honest, inquisitive, caring and engaged life. My goal is for my paintings to express these values. I constantly explore new ideas, switch genres and/or mediums searching for new possibilities. My art reflects what I feel are important qualities of a meaningful life – be honest, have an open mind and an open heart, truly listen to others, be open to new possibilities, work to make things better. I’m not interested in ignoring or glossing over the many important issues we face, but instead of painting specifically about one particular issue, I hope my paintings inspire a state of mind and heart to find commonality, hopefulness and open and honest conversation. At the very least, my goal when I am painting is to be completely present and engaged with the process so that what comes out is completely honest.”Continue reading →

- Steve Adams
Steve Adams, is an American post-abstract bucket and brush man, who grew up in the 70’s/80’s NYC Lower East Side Art Movement. He is a man of many interests and tastes. Steve has a long fascination with the CIA, beautiful blondes, large block V-8’s and the bohemian life. Steve’s work mixes conceptually based, commodified technique with surrealistic self-expression sensibilities. Working within Steve’s untraditional process, he has eliminated that part of Western tradition in which painting is an illusionist picture of part of the world.
Steve, along with his wife Heather, have just opened the Steve Adams Gallery in old town Littleton, a brand new “art house” showcasing international and regional contemporary art.Continue reading →
- Raimundo Rubio
Raimundo Rubio is a New York City based Chilean artist who positions his recent work at the intersection of several movements in art history. His painterly technique features the artist’s fascination with color and abstraction. The works immediately convey a fascination with Jackson Pollock’s all-over abstract expressionist technique and a constant balancing of color evocative of Clyfford Still in his color field discoveries. Rubio’s emotional investment ultimately takes the discussion to a place where his work represents a dialogue about our complicated world and our relationship with the cosmos.
His work is currently being shown at the Steve Adams Gallery in old town Littleton.
- Stephen Lack
Stephen Lack’s car paintings are not too far removed from the traditional 19th century paintings of horses like those of Stubbs, except now the horses are compressed and multiplied under the hood and the colors are pumped to the radiant palette of Samsung and Sony. Still, the musculature of the machines are poised with the stillness and formality of the tradition from which they herald.
Truly, Stephen Lack is a 21st Century landscape artist. In his hands, the landscape expands to the world of media, and beyond the materialism represented, are the complex emotional conflicts that inspire so much of our entertainment.
Each painting is a distillation of the action happening all around us all the time….. and he morphs it into an unexpected celebration.
“……there is a Bay Area sense of light in his work. At his most figurative, his paintings call to mind Fairfield Porter and Milton Avery. But, it is probably most apt to consider him a hybrid Hopper– capturing both painter Edward Hopper’s sense of alienation and film actor Dennis Hopper’s seductive menace.” Katie Clifford ARTNewsContinue reading →

- Patricia J. Finley
My art reflects the joy I take in creating. I love the process of creating art as well as the result of creating. I go, and thus my art goes, where the process takes me. While I always start a new piece with an idea, a concept, a design or a goal in mind, only rarely does the result match my intentions exactly. This is a result of the qualities of my chosen medium, for I create by adding paint and ink to resin and painting with colored resin.
Creating with colored resin requires certain flexibility, a carefully cultivated adroitness and a savoir-faire attitude for this fascinating medium rarely does what I had originally expected it to. Experimentation, as well as a willingness to fail, is key.
The immediacy of resin and its flowing movement are what make this difficult medium so appealing to me. As with life, there is only so much control that I have over resin. Mistakes happen; sometimes those are happy mistakes; sometimes not.
My most recent series is called the Riot (of Color) series. In this series, I have used the same four colors in each piece with wildly different results.Continue reading →

Swirling skies with beasts sprouting clockwork from their bodies, deer manifesting from trees and embryos floating within moons are just some of the common visuals found in her mostly watercolour on canvas work which she often refers to as surrealist in nature.
- Kort Duce
“One could call my painting style naïve art with a pop art and contemporary art influence. I like to create paintings that have a simple design, tell a story and use a vivid color palette. I add heavy texture using paint, 3D objects and other acrylic binders to bring depth and complexity.
To date, I have completed nearly 50 paintings in my rooster and chicken series.
In 2012 newspaper article about “Collective Whimsy,” an art show I headlined, Miyai Abe Griggs, the executive director of The Art Museum of Eastern Idaho, was quoted as saying ‘Art doesn’t always have to be so serious. There’s nothing wrong with art that makes you smile.'”Continue reading →

- Antonia Fernandez
Antonia Fernandez is originally from Colorado and recently graduated with her BFA from Metropolitan State University of Denver. She concentrates on realism and portraiture, spending intimate time recording their history and personality. Using oil paints she gives focus to the wrinkles in their face and puts extensive detail even in the subtlest marks, as they serve as maps of the subjects’ life. . Usually, in history only wealthy patrons could afford portraits and were designed to depict their social status, wealth, and an idealized depiction of what was thought to be beauty. Combating this historical bias, Antonia’s paintings showcase the subjects’ moral wealth and values by depicting them in a manner true to their individual character.

- Ian Cochrane
I am a self taught artist specializing in unique, bold, and often colorful paintings, that tend to have a high level of ambiguity. This seems to engage the viewer, almost like asking them to solve a puzzle( which may or may not be there). When I paint, I almost go into a zen like state and my works are usually not planned and never sketched out beforehand. I rely on my intuition to guide me through the piece and create a feast for the viewers eyes.

With that being said, no life is lived without death therefore death is just as much a part of life as breathing is. Art is my life, art is my legacy, art is my death.”-Kans

Common threads of the human condition which bind us all together.

My artwork has largely been influenced by my understanding of the natural world as being in constant flux. Through my drawings I explore natural life processes that are both beautiful and destructive, addressing growth and decay. I manipulate the surface of the paper by staining, cutting away at, and adding texture to it, resulting in varied and interrelating forms. The various elements of the drawings work together to create the feeling of an amorphous entity in the midst of uncertainty and change.

The work of Disbound represents an exploration of the creative inclination that’s entirely unconstrained by a commercial imperative. As an abstract representationalist, cultivating a dialog based upon social commentary is the heart that drives his creative process. The conceptual theory of Disbound’s oeuvre is to remove the incarcerating tint created by rose colored glasses of conservatisms and show the true nature of the human condition.

- Ravi Amar Zupa
www.ravizupa.comContinue reading →
Ravi Zupa’s art education started with his family and continued on at his local library. Zupa has spent the last decades studying art from cultures and movements that span history and originate from nearly all geographical regions. He considers books the best way to experience art. Being entirely self-taught, he looks for inspiration in works by German Renaissance print makers, Flemish primitives, abstract expressionists, Japanese woodblock artists, Mughal paintings, religious iconography from Europe, Asia and pre-Columbian Latin America, and revolutionary propaganda the world over. With a distaste for ironic art or the thoughtless appropriation of culture, Zupa seeks to integrate these disparate elements in search of some universal experience that explains, at least in part, what our incredibly fortunate historical position might mean.

CT Nelson’s paintings do not fit into one artistic movement. His approach draws from many and has developed into a unique style that is completely his own. A captivating contrast of urban linear illustrative street aesthetics within fragmented Americana and Neoclassical narratives encourages further investigation of complex, emotional contemplation. Employing an exceptional awareness of light and color, Ct creates an opportunity to delve deeper into phantasmagorical landscapes where the initial discomforts and distortions of the grotesque transform into genuine intellectual curiosities.
