"Jing's Superhyperreal world is full of people infused with visceral, unsentimental, in-your-face attitudes! With shiny-eyed optimism and close interaction with everyday people, Jing combines his eye for subtle gestures and expressions with a tropical color palette and the classical formality of the tableau, instilling the colorful character of his subjects in his images. Utilizing a healthy dose of kitsch and humor to disarm viewers' expectations, Jing explores the social instinct of people to form communities and identities, and questions our tendency to define characters and cultural stereotypes. Jing's appreciation of cultural references and authentic environments, coupled with strong conceptual direction,help to create contemporary fictions, alternate realities and mythologies in our urban social narratives."

Working spontaneously, and utilizing a range of mediums including wood, canvas, chipboard, acrylic paints, found materials and pen and ink, Kinsey constructs multi-layered, textured environments easily likened to the complexities of contemporary urban life. His portraits depict beings who are both triumphant in their defiant stance to their surroundings, and tragic, as they transmit a visual display of raw emotion and jangled nerves.
The style and substance of his body of work originates in street art, such as his “unlearn” message, and in keeping with his goal “to expose as many people to art as possible and to honor the power art has when it’s created and accepted”, Kinsey founded the BLK/MRKT Gallery, allowing him to provide a crossroads for a new movement of young and electrifying iconoclasts.

David E. Sugar embodies the Brikabrak ethos of pushing artistic freedom. His experiments in the world of micro music have put awards on the shelf and taken him around the world. David joins the label for a collaboration with MC Ears which was composed using just three gameboys.
Peepshow are not so much safety in numbers as was their initial intention when they first set out, as strength of 10 brains, 20 eyes, and 100 fingers whose eclectic approach offers new ideas which draw on the experience and individual skills of all involved. They are responsible in no small way for shaping and informing the rapidly-changing climate of visual culture today.

Dark copper bells, giant stone trees.
Sad birds looking in the lake to peck their distorted images.
Hairy grey grass growing fast on the inside.
And every senior ghost has its own bell.
There is not night or day - just fog from swamps.
There are no clouds, just slimy paper made zeppelins.
Thoughts and dreams are slashing each other to death.
Romans and greeks are the only citizens left.
And two venetian old fools.
They all look translucent like projected by
a huge Merkur portable projector (35mm - 1922).
Soldiers with led boots marching indefinitely,
Do not reach the battlefield ! There is Avebell.
Makunouchi Bento are:
Felix Petrescu (waka x)
