Clearly a favorite of the Spring Break Art Show and the Instagram art world, Dasha Bazanova was on display at Spring Break Art Show 2023.

Dasha has captivated audiences with her unique and delightful sculpture practice. Her recent series of sculptures, each measuring the diameter of an ashtray garner widespread attention on social media platforms like Instagram.

Although diminutive in size, these sculptures pack a punch of creativity, color, storyline, and whimsy.

With their compact dimensions, they provide an intimate and tactile experience, allowing for a close examination of the fine details and textures.

Despite their small scale, Dasha's sculptures carry a sense of narrative and evoke a range of emotions. Each piece showcases her distinct artistic style, often combining elements of humor, nostalgia, and unexpected juxtapositions. Through her choice of subjects and imaginative execution, Dasha invites viewers to engage with her artwork on both a visual and emotional level.

Takashi Horisaki

Takashi Horisaki, of the most exciting artists Ive encountered in some time.  

Takashi Horisaki is a highly acclaimed visual artist known for his exceptional talent in creating large-scale installations and sculptures. Originally from Japan, Horisaki now resides and works in the United States.

Using a distinctive technique called "slow decay," he intentionally allows natural elements like bacteria and fungi to gradually break down the material.   Blurring the boundaries between creation and destruction. Through this process, Horisaki explores themes of impermanence, memory, and the passage of time.

By reimagining architectural fragments and abandoned structures, he invites viewers to reflect on the transience of human existence and the resilience of our shared heritage.

His installations have been shown at Whitney Museum, the Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo, and the Venice Biennale.
