Rezene Tsegai has only been painting for three years. At 23 years old, this up and coming painter also happens to be self taught.
This short documentary by Futsum Tsegai captures Rezene while he works to master the art of portraiture and aspires to document those in his community who represent him.
Jeremy G. Bell is a West Seattle native. He is currently pursuing his masters in fine arts at Montclair State University in New Jersey. Jeremy’s unique combination of abstraction and representation has been compared to the “neo soul” style of music by those eager to collect the art form. With a background in graphic design, his work clearly reflects the use of layering often associated with graphic design. He has been featured on the cover of Quilt Journal, and selected as an Emerging artist for Gasparilla Arts Festival.
