Prince Zaar chose not to stay in the Royalty lineup in Camaroon, but to continue his work in sacred geometry and criminal justice in the US. He uses ink to execute large scrolls he refers to as trianglerism which are intense, beautiful, and psychedelic.
Rich Cali works with ink on vintage paper recording images from his soul and subconscience with direct subjects transformed to read as elegant autobiographic imagery.
Dan Phillips works with gouache on paper which express his talent as a furniture maker. Simplistic graceful femininity subjects float on his paper.
Anthony Dominguez worked on the streets of NY with dark fabrics and simple uncommon materials such as white-out. He worked on pieces he could roll and transport for a mobile work space. His work is allegories from his thoughts about the timeless and repeated state of man and the world.
Robert Ryan is a tattoo artist from New Jersey who when not tattooing is working to maintain clarity and an enlightened state of the mind with his teacher in India. His work in ink describes this journey.
All five artists are working or have worked within what we would call “the HINTERLAND” – an area lying beyond what is visible or known.
