BD White

B.D. White entered the art scene by painting hundreds of streetlight bases throughout New York City. Despite his spinal injury, he earned a reputation as a prolific street artist using spray paint and stencils as his main medium. The artwork's aesthetic appeal and poignant messaging stood out, like “The Hashtagger”, a bronze sculpture that is far from your usual hastily sprayed tags and simple wheat paste works. It is Rodin’s Thinker sculpture with a modern update; an iPhone. Inspired by Shepard Fairey's style, B.D. has taken the stencil technique to unprecedented levels of complexity; utilizing 60 to 95 stencil layers per painting. The works are visually stunning, however the concept and message are most interesting. B.D.’s recent works depicts an astronaut in multiple states of movement, sometimes alone, sometimes entwined in a tragic embrace with a female form. The astronaut represents man at his most lonely and distant self, though present in many of the paintings with the female love interest, the seemingly insurmountable obstacle of love lost, and longing is obvious. ​ B.D. White is not the first artist to overcome physical limitations. When his hands became to arthritic to paint, Renoir strapped brushes to his wrists and continued on and Chuck Close overcame near total paralysis to continue as one of the most significant living American artists. B.D. expertly demonstrate that nothing can dampen or contain an artist’s almost instinctual, obsessive need to create and share with the world. To date, B.D. has shown in group exhibitions in New York, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Chicago, Miami, and Berlin. An installation at the World Trade Center, exposure at Scope Art Fair during Art Basel in Miami, a month long solo show at Castle Fitzjohns Gallery in Manhattan, a window display at Saks Fifth Ave. as well as his continued work on the streets of New York; have garnered him a strong and growing collector base. ​


JPO is a Visual artist based out of New York City known for his vibrant and elusive painting style. JPO translates raw emotions into colorful, powerful and expressive works of art while visually connecting concepts of human perception. JPO’s passion for the arts emerged at a young age, for he was inspired by the eclectic tastes of his father and sister, who introduced him to improvisational styles of music and meditation. JPO draws much of his inspiration from his zeal to the practice of meditation. When he paints, he channels his third eye. His work has been shown in galleries across the country and his murals, painted on famous walls in New York city. JPO has also collaborated with such brands as: GAP, MTV, The Grammys, Lululemon, Saks Fifth Ave, JBL Audio, Puma and Maxim Magazine. ​
