JERRY SCHWARTZ

Born in the Bronx. Childhood formed by an obsession with dioramas and a love for the Museum of Natural History. Got a journalism degree at NYU. Paris called after college. Shelved journalism and wrote postcards instead. Stayed in the City of Light for six years and fell into fashion. Moved back to New York to make large scale dioramas and began a career in set design. Dioramas aside, he thanks his journalism studies for making him an acute observer of culture, inspiration, and visual details that lend to his craft. Feels most comfortable collaborating and entering a new world each day. Has been called on to create everything from ice caves to mini paper cities. Media agnostic and works in everything from kraft paper to cashmere, and from chic to cheap. He spreads his unique point of view not only in his set design and installation work, but also as an art director, illustrator, stop motioneer, and paper artist. www.jerryschwartzny.com/→

Kristyna Archer

Kristyna Archer is an award-winning advertising photographer and director with a knack for telling stories through her images. Her body of work is conceptual and compelling, highlighting offbeat moments with a nod to the idiosyncratic human condition.  She spent her formative years chronicling  Detroit with a Pentax K1000 around her neck and soon fell in love with the magic of the darkroom processes.  She studied photography at Columbia College and followed up with a decade of work in Chicago.  Now she splits time between LA and NYC, eats 3 cups of carrots a day to nurture her best asset (keen vision), and can be found befriending any cat that crosses her path.  Her photographic accolades include awards from the Lucie International Photography Awards, Communication Arts Design Annual, and the APA awards.  Her clients range from Leo Burnett and Ogilvy to The New York Times and VICE.  She also recently created a podcast about the intersection of art & commerce with trailblazers in today’s creative landscape, called MergeLeft.  http://archerstudio.co/→

Jon Burgerman

Jon Burgerman is a UK born, NYC based artist instigating improvisation and play through drawing and spectacle. He is a purveyor of doodles and is often credited and referenced as the leading figure in the popular 'Doodle' art style. His work oscillates somewhere between fine art, urban art and pop-culture, using humour to reference and question his contemporary milieu. His is a pervasive and instantly recognisable aesthetic that exists across a multitude of forms including canvases, large scale murals (indoor and outside), sculpture, toys, apparel, design, print and people (as tattoos and temporary drawings). Burgerman studied Fine Art at The Nottingham Trent University, graduating in 2001 with First Class Honours. In 2008 his 300 page monograph entitled 'Pens Are My Friends' was published by IdN, collating the first 7 years of his professional career. In the same year Jon appeared on the seminal BBC TV show Blue Peter to create a mural 'doodle' live on set. This along with many international brand collaborations (including Nike, New Era, Sony, Puma, Pepsi, Levis, MTV), exhibitions and events around the world (including the Southbank Centre London, Centre de Cultura Contemporania de Barcelona, Neurotitan Berlin, 798 District Beijing, Madre Museum, Naples) and a series of collectable vinyl toys, (including 'The Heroes of Burgertown', produced by Kidrobot), helped introduce Burgermans work into the public consciousness. Performance, intervention and actively engaging, often directly, with an audience has been prominent within the evolution of his practise. Burgerman created a pop-art band entitled Anxieteam, having never been in a band or wrote music or lyrics before. The band, during their 4 year duration, signed an independent record deal, released an album and singles, performed in America, across the UK, Germany and Italy, and were played on, amongst other stations, prime time BBC Radio 1. Burgerman now regularly performs at events, conferences and universities around the world, (including FITC, OFFF Festival, SVA School of Visual Arts, Nuart Norway, NYU, FIT New York, Red Dot Design Museum Singapore, Offset Dublin) delivering keynote lectures and running creative workshops. His works include a focus on what he calls 'quiet interventions', where subtle, often cheap, nonpermanent actions drastically (and sometimes comically) alter the reading of a signifier, object or situation. It's Burgerman's belief that through these playful, creative acts, Art can act as an agent to change the world, by being the catalysis to allow people to change their worlds. http://jonburgerman.com/→
