Cole Sternberg

@Cole Sternberg

Cole Sternberg is a conceptual artist who lives and works in Los Angeles. His practice contemplates humanity’s existential quandary: that of being hopelessly destructive, yet forever and inevitably linked with nature. Through varied media (including painting, sculpture, installation, performance, photography, film and writing), Sternberg positions the aspirations of humankind against the dominant and regenerative forces of the environment and the arbitration of time. For the artist, the conclusion is unavoidable. Human enterprises -- art, language, history, law, and republic -- are ephemeral / illusory endeavors that attempt to reflect, parallel, and challenge the ascendency of nature to no avail. In recent years, Sternberg’s painting practice has centered on the environment acting as the true artist. Some pieces have incorporated poetry, suggesting imprecise narratives or descriptions that can’t be fully apprehended through words. His photographs interrupt time, while historical and cultural myths are pursued and deconstructed in sculptural installations and film. These confrontations frequently materialize in instances of erasure; erasure of marks and words, erasure of history, or the erasure of the natural environment. Sternberg’s works remain subversive in their unremitting search for truth, noting humanity’s attempts to create beautiful permanence while failing admirably. Sternberg has exhibited nationally and internationally, including exhibitions at the American University Museum (Washington, DC), El Segundo Museum of Art (El Segundo, CA), Hochhaus Hansa (a Ruhr.2010 Museum, Dortmund, Germany), Los Angeles Nomadic Division (LAND, Los Angeles), LA><ART (Los Angeles), Praz Delavallade (Los Angeles), Yeo Workshop (Singapore), Primary (Miami), David B. Smith Gallery (Denver), Peter Blake Gallery (Laguna Beach), There There (Los Angeles), MAMA (Los Angeles & Berlin), e105 Gallery (Berlin), Paris Photo (Los Angeles), Zona Maco (Mexico City), ArtBo (Bogota), and Art Los Angeles Contemporary (ALAC). His works are held by major collections throughout the world, such as the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), the Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM), the El Segundo Museum of Art (ESMoA), the American University Museum (AUM) and Deutsche Telekom. It has been featured in publications such as, the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Whitewall Magazine, Issue Magazine, Autre Magazine, Hercules, Denver Post, Miami New Times, LA Weekly, Art Ltd., Architectural Digest, Angeleno, Sleek, Metal Magazine, ArtNet, Cool Hunting, Huffington Post, Elle, Flaunt and Elephant.

Electralina

@electralina

Electralina is a wife and husband collaboration between Alina Karo and Ryan Junee. Alina started her professional career as a fashion photographer in 2004 and by 2006 she was working with top modeling agencies in Paris, London, New York and Moscow, with her photographs featured in Vogue, Esquire, Harper’s Bazaar, Interview, L’Officiel, Interview, Numero, Tatler, Elle, Marie-Claire and many others. In 2014 she turned her attention from the commercial fashion industry towards artistic independent work and created collections like “Seven Deadly Sins'' and “Vollipsis” that were exhibited at galleries in Paris, New York, Miami and Los Angeles. Combining the elegant poses of high fashion with the grotesque, the anti-sexual and with stunning disregard for what is expected, she told the story of society’s increasing consumerism, environmental destruction, false idols and the irony of modern trendy spirituality. Continuing her artistic journey, the rise of NFTs and digital generative art caught her eye and became her newest medium for exploration in collaboration with her husband. Ryan has a background in programming and technology, originally studying engineering at Stanford University. He always believed coding was an art form - an elegantly written algorithm inspires the same feelings of beauty as a painting or a sculpture. He is particularly attracted to abstract art, perhaps due to its similarity to code. Collaborating with Alina on Identity has been the perfect marriage of art and code (pun intended).

@mwiederrecht

Melissa Wiederrecht (1988-) is a Generative Artist from America, living and working in Saudi Arabia. She chose generative art as her career after earning an MS in Computer Science in 2014. Having been fascinated by code-generated art for more than 20 years, Melissa continuously pushes the boundaries of generative art as a medium, both technically and aesthetically. She is an Artblocks Curated artist and released “Sudfah” on Artblocks Curated in June 2022. She then released a playground drop “Sandaliya” in October 2022, and she has released several collections on fxhash (including “Take Wing”, “Zbageti”, “Solitude”, “Orbs”, and others). Prior to joining the NFT world, Melissa worked for several years on generative Surface Pattern Design, creating dozens of collections of seamless patterns to be digitally printed on surfaces of products. Melissa was influenced in her practice by Jared Tarbell and Tyler Hobbs, many traditional abstract artists, and Islamic art and culture. Her work tends to center on the theme of the paradoxes between order vs. chaos, intention vs. accident, and control vs. randomness. Her work is often colorful and creatively combines blurs, textures, and linework. In recent work, her primary tools of choice are p5.js and GLSL fragment shaders. Her work has been featured on 1stDibs as part of the exhibition “Coded Elegance” curated by Sarah Mayohas, on verse.works as part of “Arithmetic Phenomena” curated by Ronan Tanchum, and in dekabinett in Berlin as part of “In Touch”, curated by Anika Meier and organized by VerticalCryptoArt. She has also done an fx(collab) project with Amber Vittoria called “In Due Time”.
