2019 Artist Lineup



Originally from Bogota, Colombia, Angie is an illustrator and painter who creates drawings with detailed linework- sometimes with no deep concept behind them, and sometimes reflecting memories and random silly ideas.

Austin Blue is a San Francisco native living in Atlanta. His work is generally a juxtaposition of geometric shapes and varying colors/ gradients and layers, usually in contrast with the actual subject.

Lindsay Ryden is a painter (slash illustrator). She spends her days in the (sometimes) masochistic pursuit that is capturing the ordinary, in excruciating detail, crafting intimate portraits of both human and inanimate object alike (along with the occasional celebrity zombie).
She also loves breakfast food, sharpie pens, and above all else, the subtly macabre art of self-deprecating humor.

Sanithna Phansavah

Sanithna's art focuses on examining the human condition, particularly the dynamic between creation, existence, and permanence. His work has been exhibited nationally and internationally, with notable showings at the High Museum of Art, on the Atlanta Beltline, and through the City of Atlanta’s Public Art programs.

How does it work?

Six of your favorite local artists will race the clock to complete a painting in just three hours. But there’s a catch- each artist starts with just a blank canvas and will need your help to earn the supplies they need to finish their masterpiece.  Donations will unlock cans of paint, paint brushes, and all the tools the artists need.

Most importantly, your donations will provide future programming for youth in our community.

It will be a fun, fast paced, and interactive atmosphere for everyone!
