About the Artists

We’re pleased to announce an international show highlighting pieces from the following artists.


Lauren Briere

Lauren Briere, in her early 30s, watches too many movies and eats popcorn as a meal more often than not.  She grew up in Wrentham, MA and got her BFA in illustration from MassArt in Boston.  She works in Austin, TX now and runs multiple projects from home.  

Her professional artist’s resume consists of work ranging from children’s book illustration, designer rain umbrellas “Over Our Heads”, animated music videos (two of which for the awesomely sweet band, The Weepies), and quirky painting series made for her own amusement. Robots. Lots and lots of robots.

Julia Las

Julia Las (Julia Laskowska) is a miniature-painter. She was born in Kiev, Ukraine in 1986 and has enjoyed drawing since early childhood. She studied at a specialized secondary art school and then graduated from the National Academy of Fine Arts, faculty of graphic design. 

Julia spent more than 5 years working at advertising agencies as a designer and art director and has been immersed in the watercolor miniature technique for about 4 years. The basic sources of her inspiration are animals and nature. Julia’s miniature watercolor paintings are in private collections all over the world.


Justo Amable

Justo Amable is a well known cuban artist, born February 2, 1966 in Cuba. The main theme of his work is migration: where am I and where would I like to be, what do I have and what can I lose.

It seems that his artworks want to make us accomplices of an act in which the emigrant or the artist can not define whether he should go or remain. His work is a representation of the desire in the mind of the emigrant: A fantasy in which the emigrant risks expensive resources to save himself. But Justo Amable renounces taking sides in the ideological game. His aim is not to give answers to the immigration conflict, he focuses on its dream side, that romantic and essential motor that moves human beings—their illusions.
