His exhibition record is staggering with hundreds of exhibits in dozens of countries. Endo is one of the most important pioneering artists of the emerging digital age.
Yoshikatsu Tamekane - Yoshikatsu Tamekanes vivid wood cut prints are a striking example of a new era in Japanese printmaking that blends traditional and abstract elements with time honored technique to produce a work that is both powerful and timeless. This Nishinomiya City-born artist is one of Japans most exciting emerging artists. His work is included in many prominent collections including the New South Wales State Museum, (Australia), the National Library of France, and The Agency for Cultural Affairs, (Tokyo).

Roman Verostko, artist and educator, began integrating personal computers with his studio work around 1982. In March of 1986, at the MCAD Centennial Faculty Show, he exhibited his Magic Hand of Chance, his first self generating sequence of visual improvisations. The following year he focused his software on creating pen plotted drawings and achieved the worlds first software-driven brushed strokes using oriental brushes mounted on his pen plotter (1987). By adding a network of several pen plotters that he views as scribes, his studio emerges as an information age digital scriptorium.
Recipient of the Golden Plotter First Prize (1994, Gladbeck, Germany) and an Ars Electronica honorable mention (1993) his work has been exhibited in major art and technology exhibitions on four continents including Genetic Art and Artificial Life (Linz, 1993) and the ARTEC 1995 Biennial (Nagoya, Japan).
Eric Polise reaches in the deepest corners of the mind to extract the denizen that haunt the psyche. This South Florida artist works in oils using muted earth tones and bold brush work. His work has been regularly exhibited in South Florida art galleries and in alternative exhibitions including the Ft. Lauderdale Hortt Exhibition, and the South Florida Literacy and Art Competition.
Maribel Cabrera Martin has exhibited internationally and focuses on the flowing movements and vibrant colors of dancers. Her compositions are set within frameworks of rectilinear abstract windows creating a relationship between the decorative painted surfaces of her work and the figures that are represented within.
Silvia Villanueva This southwestern-raised artist uses the figure and its component parts to evoke emotions in the viewer and she uses the symbol of a heart to convey emotional responses. The modeled contours of the nude figure bring her pencil drawings to life. Her style is both moving and joyful as she attempts to capture the essence of life in her work. Her artwork, previously only available in the South West, is a welcome addition to our local art scene.
