Herekita uses these bold beauties to reveal the inner monologue of modern womanhood. She illustrates our vulnerabilities on the bodies of these women and in the titles of her paintings. Each of her luscious ladies oozes their fierce femininity within their environments.

Luisa Rivera

Paper Darts is a longtime fan of Luisa Rivera. Originally from Chile, Rivera now lives and works in London. But before living in London, she lived in Minneapolis, the original nesting place for Paper Darts. We have ties to her that we never want to sever, but mostly because she's an incredibly artist and human. Rivera uses water-based paints, such as acrylic, pencil, watercolor, and gouache, to create quick thumbnail sketches. Both the female figure and nature are at the heart of her work. After finding her favorite direction, Rivera goes large-scale, fiercely relying on her intuition and gut to compose each piece.

Hector Barajas

Barajas grew up in the Sonoran desert of Tuscon, Arizona. His budding art career depicts equally soft and strong images of the cultural conflicts surrounding sexuality. As a member of the gay community, Barajas is interested in blending elements of classical painting with the faces of pornographic actors, as well as his own face and the faces of his own romantic situations and relationships. These tender portrayals explore the conflicting spheres of religion, social expectations, and politics that surround sexual identity. 

Christopher Williams

California native Christopher Williams is currently earning his BFA from the San Francisco Art Institute, a promise he made to his father, who passed away two years ago. His overwhelming sense of chromatics and culture have become the foundation to his painting practice.
