Dave is a musician, activist, and street artist and has been working in the creative field for most of his life. As a child, Dave spent his evenings seated by his father, a graphic designer, at the drafting table, where he learned many of his techniques. A one time oil painter, Dave admittedly claims he didn’t have the patience for oils and traded in his visual art medium for the immediacy of the street. A trauma survivor and a sufferer of PTSD, Dave’s motivation has been bringing awareness and normalization surrounding the stigma of mental health issues. Through the art he creates, especially his #traumakids movement , he aims to share strength through the concept of trauma and how we all have had challenges in our lives that connect us more than we are aware. Our deepest darkest fears and feelings are sometimes that which unites us, not matter how great or small.
PADHiA is a Los Angeles-based street artist, designer, and writer. Her work can best be described as psychological commentary. Where most other street artists pull from external themes such as politics, pop culture, and social commentary, PADHiA’s work explores the often undiscovered and obscure aspects of our interior human landscape.
She is the originator of several viral movements including Unfuk Yourself : be who you were before all the stuff happened that dimmed your f*cking shine, and the Love Me Anyways thought initiative, which she has also expanded into fine art and an apparel line. Her first book Unf*K your Shine is anticipated late 2020.
