Artists Bios:
 
Frank August is a Brooklyn photographer born and raised in New York.   Watching his dad's passion for photography,  he developed his interest in photography at a young age.  He always carried a camera around snapping away at his friends in school. To this day, he still has shoe boxes with undeveloped rolls from his high school days.
Frank August has no formal training in art or photography. He became an early adopter of the digital photography revolution. His first digital camera was a 1.3 megapixel Sony.

Now Frank August shoots high end digital as well as black & white film with a Leica rangefinder, developing in his bathroom. His work includes art, fashion, beauty, photojournalism.  With themes relating to urban cultures, identity, minorities and urban life, his work allows him to complete a part of his life and identity.
 
Gary St. Clare is a digital artist who was born and raised in New York, Manhattan. He began his formal art training at LaGuardia High School of the Arts in New York City with a concentration in Art & Music. He studied at the Art Students League for Illustration, built a strong portfolio and continued on to the School of Visual Arts (SVA) majoring in Graphics Design where he combined Illustration, graphics & typography.
After graduating SVA he studied in Barcelona, then returned to New York to work with a broad range of commercial companies in advetising and the music industry. St. Clare’s experience in the commercial world has enabled him to produce work that
represent other people’s vision.  His work presents his personal stance on life that the audience can universally be touched and relate to.  He is on a life long quest to refine his artistic knowledge and technique to express what surrounds him as a member of the society.
 
 
Béatrice Kusiak is a Franco-Polish young artist. She studied Fine Arts at the University of Paris 8, and completed her studies with training in Fine Arts in Granada (Spain), where she actively took part in José Freixanes' workshop, and studied drawing at a workshop with Elbzieta Kalinowska Motkowicz at the Koszalin Design Institute in Poland. She also completed courses at the Warsaw Fine Arts Academy.

Her Andalusian and Moroccan experiences (the installation and realization of José Freixanes' work Al Final del Amanecer in Casablanca, Morocco) probably influenced her work with fabric.
 
 
Although her realizations are mainly paintings, it does not exclude the various performances, photographs and experiences in nature and in the urban landscape, that all take part of an attitude in quest of fluidity in our daily lives.
She is currently working in a Parisian suburb.
  

 
Virginie Sommet is a mid-career artist from Paris, France. She has been active in the New York City art scene for the past 8 years. Her focus has been on creating found object sculptures that reflect her familiarity with a wide range of social issues.  Sommet is driven to visually tackle challenging topics that examine societal constraints. The focus is on matters that separate individuals related to gender and urban subcultures issues. She is vigilant and dedicated in spreading awareness of this topic to mainstream viewers. In addition to her various exhibitions and Art Salons, her work is in private collections of Archbishop Desmond Tutu, President Nelson Mandela, Susan Sarandon and Terry George.Besides her high profile collectors, her work continue to be supported by Eyal Levy, Dr.Martin Rotman of New York and Yolanda TorresTorres of Barcelona, Spain and many others.
