Artist Bio:
A self-taught artist. From day one, Yedi Fresh has been creating. Whether it is illustration, painting, digital art, or mural work, he has allowed his creative nature to explode across canvases, notebooks, and even some walls around y'alls. To him, it is a nonstop vision. From an oversized yeti to some cool color therapy, there are always works in progress. Not a day goes by that Yedi can't be found with pencil, brush or can in hand. Always working, always improving. It is this very persistence, the one that keeps him up long hours into the night, that springs his creative worlds into reality. R.O.Y.G.B.I.V. thats how I live.
- Yedi Fresh

Artist Bio:

McLee Mathius a stamford native was  raised by a single immigrate mother  from Haiti who had taught him the value of hard work and self perseverance from an early age.  Since the moment he picked up a trumpet in elementary school his passion for music and the arts was fueled.  First it was music, then photography and now he is growing his profile into the art world.

Being self taught in all these fields his passion comes from his home town of Stamford.  With always being told he would have to "leave" to make it in the industry, McLee decided to take the challenge head on and "master his own domain".  Loving the diversity of people, socio economics, landscape and over all culture of his hometown offers he implements that in his own work.  The creation of making a non-tangible idea, tangible is exuded throughout all his passions.  As a photographer, he works with his subjects to make their visions come to life.  As an artist his use of multi-layering is synonymous with his outlook on life.  Every person, place or thing has layers to them and McLee brings it to the surface.

His journey has just begun and as the new featured artist to recently join the Mad Lab, only time will tell where is artistry experiments will end up.  Stay tuned, he is just getting started.

MAD Creative: Wilson Beltran
👁 willy_b.04
•••
Driven by an ever-growing passion for developing and designing platforms, in which all individuals are invited to connect, grow, build, and experience together. In January 2020, Wilson joined the MAD Lab, LLC as an operating partner. Despite not considering himself a “true” artist, Wilson exercises creativity & ingenuity as a leader and team player both in the physical and digital space. Having spent over a decade dabbling in digital media, technology, fashion, events, and the Arts, Wilson has begun the behind the scenes work implementing essential processes and systems that will help elevate MAD to the next level.

When he is not at the bedside caring for patients in the Emergency Room as a Registered Nurse, you may find Wilson either at the Lab or on the move with his book-bag & notebooks, yapping on the phone or clicking away on his laptop plotting the next move.

“We are organically growing every single day and will NOT STOP until Connecticut, specifically Norwalk, becomes the ART CAPITAL of the World. BOLD! I know, but only we can stop we. Join the MADness.”

Wilson believes that MAD: “Manifesting All Dreams” is a way of life, a personal mantra. Something he lives and breathes every single day. As a product of two immigrant parents, he was taught at a young age to take risks, never fear failure, learn & adapt quickly, be resourceful and that together, anything is possible.

Opening Reception: Saturday, October 10th : 5PM - 9PM
Exhibition Dates: OCT. 10TH - 17TH
🟣LINK IN BIO🟣

This exhibition is a collection of illustrative designs by two Black womxn, Lewis Derogene and Scheba Derogene, depicting BIPOC womxn as ideal in their normality.

There is a variety of illustrations with different forms of womxn from skin to hair to features and more.

Beyond Beauty: the ideal form is a celebration of all BIPOC womxn in all of our splendor and beauty.

With the different appearances that we all uniquely have, we break down the Eurocentric beauty standards by accepting who and what we are as well as standing strong for our choices of being unapologetically us.

We are beyond beauty, we are beyond the ideal form.

BIPOC womxn are beyond beautiful, and this exhibition is here to share that with you.
>
🟣All artworks in this exhibition are for sale🟣
🟣All proceeds go to the individual artists🟣

There will be a suggested donation at the door to help raise funds for the artist Lewis Derogene to attend an artist residency program with Chateau Oqruevaux for 4 weeks; the funds will cover the cost for the program’s fee, travel and meals for that whole month. Any contribution is appreciated.
