Gera Lozano was born in the Amazon jungle of Peru, and from the age of 9 was raised in the urban city of Newark, NJ. She has an MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute in New Genres. Gera Lozano is a conceptual artist based out of Brooklyn, New York. Using photo, video, artist books, and public art in her process, Lozano’s practice intentionally beautifies and brings to light both sacred patterns, and the patterns woven into our social fabric. Both her studio and public artwork carry the energy of cultures’ dreams, that transform the ethnography and the current zeitgeist into abstract geometric designs. GERALUZ, as she is as also known in the street art world, projects designs of living cultures that reflect the energetic fields of optical perception.
Jari WERC Alvarez was born in Ciudad Juarez, Ch. MX. (1980) and grew up in El Paso TX. It is in this border where it all began for Werc; 21 years ago, he became part of the graffiti movement and began his artistic career. WERC’s work is an aggregate of culture, symbols, graffiti & design. WERC’s work brings wonder into the urban environment with a free-flowing aesthetic, inspired by the dream like nature of surrealism & grounded in geometry. WERC explores the balance in the aspects of duality and the politics of identity & believes art can weave community’s thoughts and aspirations.
