Andrew Durham

Taking long vacations during the summer is probably one of my favorite things in life. When I was a kid, the summer holiday from school always seemed to define each year for me. It was the summer of… This was the time you could go on an adventure, fall in love, get lost, reinvent yourself. After summer, September always felt more like the New Year to me, never January.

Brian Lotti

As a child I was very interested in drawing and coloring things, and later on, I attended a Catholic high school in Las Vegas where the kids were pretty mean. I spent a lot of time in the art classroom, stealing away during lunch breaks. Ceramics and painting were my escape from the craziness of that school and I was able to deal with some heavy emotions there in that room. Art became a means for transforming awful feelings into a kind of peace and happiness.

Ben Venom

Ben Venom is a self-taught quilter with a die-hard DIY attitude. One scroll through his Instagram feed, you’ll see that he’s like a talented local tattoo artist armed with a sewing machine who loves classic heavy metal acts like Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden, and Metallica.

We connected with the San Francisco-based artist to find out more about his (P.M.A.) positive mental attitude, his passionate, prolific and painstaking pattern work and being an awesome dad to his baby girl, Beatrice Rose.

Fernando Mastrangelo

Known for his natural forms that reference sand dunes, melting icebergs and mountainous landscapes, Fernando Mastrangelo creates works “for the city dwellers who want to escape.” His pieces a well-balanced combination of form, content and material often trigger a primal sense of belonging, or tranquility in their viewer.

Danny Sangra’s Italian Film Picks

We asked Danny Sangra to create a film list for us, similar to the list or diary he has been creating every month in his customized yellow leather Smythson book since January 2016 (never missing a month). This time with a twist – ONLY Italian films. Enjoy!

Barry McGee

Meeting Barry McGee is the exact opposite of experiencing his art exhibitions. In person, he’s quiet, attentive and acutely focused on the conversation. He notices small details and often compliments you on the simplest things. His humble nature and youthful charm make you wonder how someone so effortlessly relaxed can make such visually jarring art.
Unlike his easy-going demeanor, his exhibitions engulf their settings with a myriad of objects. One doesn’t see a McGee show so much as experience it.

Mary Little

Mary Little explores the interaction between light, surface and gravity. Her works take the form of rhythmic, undulating hollows and rises, suggesting images of landscape or bodyscape. Sensibilities are rooted in a childhood among lush rolling farmlands of Ireland and its wild rugged coastlines. The work is ritualistic in its process: cutting, then sewing cotton canvas; much as a tailor would make a suit. The completed works are an interplay between precision planning, her emotions and the unpredictability of the canvas.
