Sol del Rio: Her latest show “Ojos de leopardo,” features a series of geometric paintings and sculptures including a painting of a blue leopard. Each tuft of fur and detail on the leopard is a micro painting, inspired by haikus. The radiant young artist digitally recreated each micro scene and toyed with the projected images to mirror each other and fade in and out along with her boyfriend, ZZK artist, Villa Diamante‘s music.
Nicolas Barraza: A pensive dark-haired Argentine, Barraza runs Mite galería, an underground venture he started in 2008, which was recently featured in Nylon. Nicolas began working with Grant when ZZK started in 2008, and is now one of the most prolific artists on the FeatBA label. “There are a lot of boring jobs out there,” he says, “But I have so much fun and liberty working with FeatBA. It doesn’t feel like work. I’m just hanging out with my friends and creating art. It’s ideal. There’s no set structure in our commune.”
Job Salorio: An autodidact graphic designer, Salorio runs Purr libros, a small book design shop in the plaza with his girlfriend Marina, a photographer and poet. Job has been one of ZZK’s head graphic designers for three years and now works both independently and for FeatBA. When asked when he knew he wanted to be a professional artist, the elegantly modest Salorio responded, “I still don’t know if I am an artist.”
Freshcore : The artist behind the cool graphic illustration of the Argentina Soccer Crest for this summer’s World Cup.
Gaulicho: An artist who began painting graffiti in 1998, drawing upon influences such as folk art, religious icons, comic graphics, ’60s psychedelia, and his own urban heritage.
