A recipient of the 2012 John Simon Guggenheim Fellowship and a scholar of literature, art semiotics, painting, and sculpture, Brooklyn-based artist Chitra Ganesh is certainly no stranger to the art world and understandably so. Her incredible installations, drawings, digital and painting-based collages look to excavate and circulate buried narratives typically excluded from official canons of history, literature, and art.

Wayne White is a little bit of everything: illustrator, musician, art director, apparently a puppeteer... you know, all those things that make one an artist. You may know him for his art direction of Pee-Wee's Playhouse, or perhaps for his fast becoming signature text over landscape reproduction works that have been part of an amazing monograph edited by Todd Oldham.
