Daniela Olarte Cortes was born in 1984 in Bogota, Colombia. By the mid 1990s, Colombia was gripped with political corruption and brutal violence forcing Olarte's family to migrate to the United States. While in Miami, Florida, Olarte enrolled into the American Heritage School where she produced classical drawings influenced by Picasso, Brito, Lichenstein, and particularly Obregon, a close family friend that often painted in their home in Bogota. In 2004, Olarte moved to Milan where she spent a year at NAVA (Nuovo Academia Di Belle Arti Milano) before transferring to School of Visual Art (SVA) in New York City. There her work began to mature to abstract paintings; she then earned degrees in Graphic Design and Fine Art in Madrid at U.E.M (Universidad Europa de Madrid). Daniela's work, heavy in line and color, are seemingly free-flowing and abstract, yet display a sense of constraint reminiscent of her beginnings in portraiture. Her large-scale paintings are reproduced for design companies such as BoConcept Urban Design and Letsdecco. In addition to painting, Olarte designed and completed an installation stretching throughout Barajas Terminal 2, in the Madrid Airport, of which earned her an award from U.E.M in 2007. Daniela Olarte successfully founded olARTE Studio (Madrid), an all-ages school to teach aspiring artists. She is currently represented by A-Cero.

Emerging New York City Street artist WhIsBe is noted for his whimsical iconography, juxtaposing innocuous and benign images within an edgier context. Mixed with self-taught skills and an education from New York’s School of Visual Arts, the artist’s street work began to appear in 2011 across the US and Europe when his McDictator piece received worldwide media attention. The artist was speaking out by depicting Ronald McDonald as a malevolent dictator, as The Huffington Post put it, “the McDonaldization of America.” Once on the scene, WhIsBe quickly rose from anonymity to acceptance within the international art community. A feature story on Art Net was soon followed by his art appearing on the cover of Wallpaper Magazine and a four-page interview in Materialist Magazine. Recently he was named “1 of 7 NYC street artists to keep on your radar” by the popular social website Guest of a Guest.@Whisbe Art | Whisbe Worldwide
Max Makewell’s 19 years of classical art training is the context that created his lens of abstraction. Rooted in the artistic principles and painting techniques of the old masters, Makewell perfected portraiture and sculpture through the mediums of charcoal, oil paint, and stone carving. Dissecting cadavers informed his deep, visceral understanding of the human form, and his mastery of classical techniques allowed him to transcend the physical form and explore the inner workings of the mind. Makewell’s work is an abstraction of the human spirit: a visual interpretation of the infinite complexity of human spirituality and emotion. His work creates a clearing for deep introspection. With his visually arresting colors and vibrant bilateral symmetries, his work elicits profound emotions and internal monologue, inspiring new levels of self-awareness for the viewer.Max Makewell
Homero Ganem was born in 1986 in Colombia's Capital, Bogota. He moved to the US at the age of nine and now lives and works in Miami, FLA. Besides the usual art classes throughout grade school, Ganem is a self-taught artist, and although he always valued art, he had other loves, like soccer-which he played in both Colombia and the US. After a knee injury left him unable to play professionally any longer, Ganem began to paint again. He credits his mother as the biggest motivating factor in his decision to pursue art as a career. All of Ganem's work is original; his pieces are one of a kind and he paints with acrylic and spray cans on canvas, as well as directly onto photographic prints. Ganem's style is reminiscent of '60s pop art and the cartoons he grew up watching influence many of his pieces. He uses metallic paint to distinguish his work from that of other current artists with parallel styles. Ganem's intention is to inspire his viewers with images that enrich their understanding and appreciation of street-like art.@homeroganemart_ | Homero Ganem
Miroslaw Chudy studied painting at the Department of Painting, Graphic Design and Sculpture at the Academy of Fine Arts in Wroclaw, Poland. Chudy earned an MFA ’87 in prof. Konrad Jarodzki Studio. In 1988-89 he studied at the State College of Fine Arts in Athens, Greece.His paintings and drawings are connected strongly with the tradition of Polish New Expression and International Movement called Nue Wilde/Nouveaux Fauves or New Image in 80’s. In Chudy’s art, the image of reality is more or less heavily distorted in form and colors in order to make it expressive. The artist’s application tends to be more generous and highly textured. His art tends to be emotional and sometimes it has mystical feelings, or ideas, about it. In Chudy’s paintings’ color, in particular, can be highly intense and non-naturalistic - brushwork is typically free. Chudy participated in many international exhibitions. Most important group exhibitions include Polish Drawing Now 1993-94 at the school of Visual Arts in New York, Arts Atrium, Union College, Schenectady, New York, University Galleries, Radford, Virginia, NOTORO Symposium ’91 at the Center of Polish Sculpture in Oronsko, Poland, Trio Exhibition in 1991, and Young Artist Biennale in Wroclaw Poland in ’87. He also participated in solo exhibitions – to mention some one man shows; The Common Ground Gallery, Mackenzie Hall, Windsor Ohio, S No Show-S No Show, IdeeGallery, Toronto Ontario in 90’ and a one man show at Eleni Gallery in Athens in 1989. He is currently working on his presentation at NOVA Art Fair in Chicago with Gosia Kosciealak
URNY is collectively made up of Fernando Romero and Mike Baca, whose mission is to inspire creativity amongst the youth through their work. Their mixed media art pieces are bold to say the least, paying homage to the New York City Streets, and evoking a sense of familiarity that resonates with their viewers. Drawing inspiration from their environment, some of their go-to mediums include photography, silk-screen, graffiti. When they are not brainstorming and experimenting in their studio, they travel in the name of artistic philanthropy, reaching out and exposing the youth of various cultures to graffiti and self expression. All of their work stem from their experiences in their city, life, love etc.@URNEWYORK | UR New York
