Featured Artists:

Janeine Scandrett: I’m 19 years old. Technically I’m half black and half Korean, a blasian, I like to say. I enjoy painting canvases, shoes, water bottles, etc. I have lived in Colorado my whole life; the majority of it has been spent creating. By that, I mean iconic characters on a new medium, a fresh playlist, or a trick line on my skateboard.
Jasmyne Jones: I’m a 19 year old Portrait/Abstract artist. I am an artist with many interest. I have tried just about every form of art, but my favorites portraits with abstract art occasionally. My biggest inspiration are cartoons that have a diverse cast of characters.
Malachi Clark: Hello everyone! I am 17 years old. I have a disability and I am a recent Widefield high school graduate! I love to express myself through the art of poetry!
Marqel Wilson: I am a 19 year old artist born and raised in Colorado. The type of art I do is categorized as hyperrealism art. I fell in love with art the moment I saw my mom’s pictures she did as a kid. I was astonished by how real it looked and just the amount of detail she displayed. It blew my mind that you could use a pencil to make something look so life-like, and ever since that moment I’ve fallen in love with hyperrealism art.
Kendrick Trujillo: When individuals see my work, I want people to see the beauty in humanity. As a species, we are far from perfection, but when I take photos I want to express what makes us great. I personally believe that I was put on earth to be an artist. I’m proud black artist from Denver which is such a privilege. Being a creative is in my blood.
