Featured Artist: Daria Endresen
A photographer, model and digital artist, Daria Endresen was born in Norway and currently lives in Paris. Daria’s subjects are otherworldly – resembling alien victims from a prison camp. With shaved heads and pale, ghostly corpse-like flesh, they are often stretched and pulled at, with roots or strings like a puppet or a suture. Her beings struggle – pulling apart or together, robot like and sedated with implied emotions.
David Jon Kassan paints incredible hyper realistic oil portraits often set against abstracted and muted graffiti inspired backgrounds. Technically proficient and masterful in his medium, his poignant raw souls ask to be heard. His beings are humanity at its core, unedited, complete with age earned wrinkles and messy struggles.

The skull shells of Gregory Raymond Halili are just that – gorgeous, luminous, anatomically perfect human skulls carved and painted onto small shells. He uses oil paint on raw, gold-lip and black-lip Philippine mother-of-pearl oyster shells and the natural shape of the mollusks echo and complement perfectly the lines of a skull.
