Artist Spotlight: Xavier Payne

The only thing Xavier Payne wants to do is make pictures. He grew up on typical ’90s cliches: Sega Genesis, Ninja Turtles, and the Fresh Prince to name a few. It wasn’t until attending Watkins College of Art, Design and Film that he decided to combine these interests with his painting and graphic art skills. He now focuses on Pop Art aimed at a Black American perspective.

Contributor Spotlight: Dylan Reyes

When I create, I often think of what Johannes Itten said, “He who wishes to become a master of color must see, feel, and experience each individual color in its endless combinations with all other colors.”. I’m also inspired frequently by love and loneliness and want folks consuming my work to be encouraged to start paying attention to the little details in everyday life, appreciate the simple things, and let them eventually inspire you! Ultimately, I’m just trying to become a mother fuckin master of color.
