Elle Seven

Episode 10 features artist, curator, quad roller skater and all around power house, Loriann Hernandez/ Elle Seven. Hernandez is connected to various sub-cultures and creative hives across the globe and has a keen eye for spotting authenticity in a persons character and work. I wanted to allow a space for further connection into the world of Hernandez, highlight her diverse community, and create an introduction to the many artists and collectives that Hernandez contributes her energy to. I invite you to take a moment to widen your gaze and look further.

Pavel Acevedo

The Mexican born Acevedo hails from Oaxaca, the same state as the great artist Rufino Tamayo but his major influence come from across the pond via the figurative painter Francis Bacon who's known for bold and emotionally raw imagery.

Mila Gockman

Born in Kiev, the capital of Ukraine, early into her career Mila abandoned engineering to pursue art. As a self-taught artist Gokhman found her own approach to the materials she worked with: wood, clay, precious stones, metal, fabrics, and her preferred medium-leather. Gokhman collaborated with the best fashion houses in the Soviet Union, and she worked as designer and costume director for the theatre. She has exhibited at museums, libraries, and palaces throughout Kiev, St. Petersburg, and Tallinn.

Gavin Bird

A second-generation illustrator, Gavin Bird at a young age had already developed his own artistic style. Mechanical birds, decorative skulls and morbid paintings are subject matter that are not often associated with artists from the Dirty South, yet these are the ideas that Bird tends gravitate toward, executing each piece with a unique and refreshing interpretation of line and form. Currently out of Jackson, Mississippi, Bird is on a roll being a skateboarder himself and is designing for organizations, companies and crews looking for fresh new ideas to bring to the skateboard community.
