Jimi Lucid (@JIMILUCID)
Jimi is a NYC Brooklyn-based musician whose work fuses musical pursuits, visual work and clothing style inspired with punk and experimental artists from the 70s era. Jimi’s works are about connections of all humans, how isolation and loneliness can be catalyst to love. At the core of it, it’s an embodiment of one’s ability to get lost in their own emotions. To Jimi, colors and sounds are one— his artistic expressions, confidence in pushing boundaries are notable in his music and visual arts, becoming a representation of self, ‘a version of me (one’s self) without filter or worry about how I am perceived.’
Bo Chapli (@BOZHEANA)
Bo (Bozheana) is a New York based Ukrainian artist and photographer. Her work primarily consists of photography, video art, acrylic & oil painting, and performance, exploring the gap between staged images and candid street photography, narcissism and identity masks. Using two dimensional visual representation, painting and photography, Bo’s work seeks to connect people with their subconscious motives. Presenting the disconnect between appearance and reality, by photographing people of all demographics, staging them in a theatrical way that presents them by their desired appearance, which often transcends human nature, rather than their actual appearance, Bo is able to bring attention to that dichotomy which is very relevant to people of her age. The strong contrast and vibrance in her photography and painting mirror this existential dilemma.
Jo Rosenthal (@JUSTJOROSENTHAL)
Originally from Miami, Florida, Jo Rosenthal, an artist, writer, and model— is one of a select handful of young women in New York right now who are using art and activism to find their voice, and getting noticed doing so. Rosenthal's works explore concepts of love, intimacy, and identity, continually questioning, challenging and confronting what does it mean to be intimate, what does it mean to be in love, what does it mean to capture somebody, what does it mean to be enraptured. Rosenthal combines ideas of innocent playfulness, peerless vulnerability in such beautiful and delicate ways. Jo’s work mirrors her own energy, her aesthetic being almost chaotic, but also ‘smart and confident.’
