Craig's artwork is interpreted as whatever the viewer sees it as.
Tiny bubbles in beer, interplanetary star clusters, fractals, the spiritual connection between everything, a puddle of spit, or microscopic cell division; each definition is correct.
Seen as both "tense" or "obsessive" and "soothing" or "gentle", Craig's work is all labeled FLOW.
Craig is a New Haven area artist who shows his artwork throughout the state.
A participant in CWOS for many years, Craig enjoys gearing up and making new art for the CWOS weekend, creating art throughout the year, and eating Mexican food.
I LOVE PEOPLE! The more intimate, trusting, open, vulnerable, accessible, electric, revealing the relationship, the better. Photographic portraiture offers me a way in. Deep in. It’s beyond satisfying when my subject offers a glimpse inside the recesses of his/her tender soul, and then I get to share evidence of that mystical beauty with the world.

I have always been fascinated with cartoons and monsters. Most of my inspiration comes from those two things. I like to create paintings that illustrate a story within the piece. I definitely have my own style. Most of my paintings have a comic relief aspect to them. I just hope that my work can make people laugh or spark something inside of them.

The serenity, seasonal changes in color and interplay of light on the landscape are images I want to give life to on paper. I love working in pastel because I can modulate the intensity of color and texture by blending subtle layers of colors to contrast with more definitive marks to create the fleeting effect of light and mood.

After listening to an album called, "All Amerikkkan Bad Ass," created by Joey Badass. I started reading some American history and there were articles & stories that showed me the lies I was taught in school and it was upsetting. Using acrylic and spray paint, I made an American flag and a blackface type character with a George Washington wig.
My name is Jarrell Brantley but I prefer the name Amir Green. I’m 19 years old and I had a gift for the arts since I was 4. Music and cartoons are my influences and pop culture & society issues is my fuel.

I write computer code to produce 2D prints, 3D printed objects, animations, and physical installations, and my background in mathematics often informs my work.

I have a Ph.D. in mathematics from Ohio State and have taught at both the college and secondary levels. Computer programming came to me outside of my formal education, and has become a means for my creative expression.
Imaginary sea organisms, psychedelic fungi, and surreal creatures these are the creations found in my multi-media body of drawings, paintings, and sculptures.

Unable to return to Syria during his architecture training in rural Iowa because of his student visa, Hafez began making models of his beloved homeland to cure homesickness. He never knew he was documenting a culture that would soon be lost to a brutal war. Now his pieces stand as a testament to the desolution of his nation.
A Syrian artist and architect, Mohamad Hafez was born in Damascus, raised in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, and educated in the Midwestern United States. Expressing the juxtaposition of East and West within him, Hafez’s art reflects the political turmoil in the Middle East and is architectural in its appearance yet politically charged in its content.
