About Jazz Brown

Jazz Brown is a self-taught Seattle artist who creates vivid geometric compositions in distinctive color palettes. Born and raised in Savannah, Georgia, Jazz brings a sense of Southern charm to the Pacific Northwest. His artistic style, which he’s coined “knew jazz,” presents intense vibration through contrasting hues, shapes and textures. His paintings are strongly graphic, resonating with deeper energy and a sense of unity.

He describes his technique as “consciousnesses on canvas,” while writer Sharon Arnold for City Arts Magazine included Brown in the burgeoning Seattle-based ‘Tenderness Movement,” a group of artists who “foster and celebrate highly emotional moments that are sweet, sometimes painful, not always beautiful, but always seeking affinity.” Brown has exhibited with Bridge Productions, Martyr Sauce, and Gary Henderson Gallery in Seattle, among many others. His work was included in the annual ‘Out of Sight’ satellite of the Seattle Art Fair and in the groundbreaking ‘Truth B Told’ exhibition by Onyx Fine Arts Collective in 2017.

About Jonathan Wakuda Fischer / Wakuda Studio

Jonathan Wakuda Fischer combines elements from pop culture, Japanese folklore and the aesthetic of ukiyo-e woodblock prints to create paintings with multiple layers of reference and homage that explore cultural dualities. Fischer is known for his distinctive murals, including the KEXP headquarters and the Hirabayashi Place project in Seattle’s International District.

His artwork has been covered by numerous publications including the Seattle Times, the Stranger and Interior Design magazine. Fischer has been a mentor artist for the Wing Luke Asian Museum’s award-winning YouthCAN program and artist-in-residence at the Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts in New York City. He is the resident muralist for Seattle firm SkB Architects, an innovative partnership between the worlds of architecture and fine art.

About Gabriel Marquez

Gabriel Marquez creates drawings, sculpture and paintings that explore motion, stillness, and the progression and digression of lines in a pictorial realm that wanders between emptiness and fullness. Known for his intricate line drawings of fantastically surreal beings and dreamscapes, Marquez often works intuitively and allows the markings he creates to bring about the final outcome of the composition’s imagery. Marquez was born in El Paso, TX to parents from Mexico. He studied painting and graphic design at the University of Texas at El Paso, before moving to Washington where he works as a technical designer in the interior design field for the aviation industry.

An active member of the Seattle art community, Marquez has exhibited in multiple exhibitions with the Center on Contemporary Art (CoCA), as well as True Love Art Gallery, Axis Gallery and Mainframe Gallery, among many others. In summer 2016, he was a featured artist in the acclaimed “La Cocina” pop-up Latinx art space, organized by non-profit La Sala: A Latinx Artists’ Network, a community partner of Seattle Art Fair, and supported by the Seattle Foundation and 4Culture.
