About the Artist:
Bradley Carter: is an award winning, international selling artist who grew up pursuing his passion for art in Virginia before moving to Wilmington, NC in 2007. He predominantly works in the medium of painting, with a passion for abstract expressionism. His works also include collage and paint skins. Carter completed his BFA in painting and printmaking form Virginia Commonwealth University in 2002. He is active in both local and national juried shows, curator of Abstract Expressionism, and currently has work in Eclipse at Blue Moon Gallery and Every Good Thing Artisan Gallery in Wilmington, NC. His work can also be seen in ABC's TV show "Secrets and Lies."
Jason Parker: was born and spent most of his childhood in Charlotte, NC, but has spent the past 16 years in Wilmington. As an adolescent Parker was heavily influenced by skateboarding, early hip hop and punk rock. Always a doodler and sketch artist it was only a matter of time before his influences lead him to graffiti. Parker quickly fell in love with spray paint as a medium and spent many years working as a graffiti artist. Since the age of 15 Parker has been involved with various bands, which has given him the opportunity to make use of his artistic abilities by creating flyers, stickers and T-shirts for whatever project he was currently involved in. He also learned to cut stencils as a rudimentary form of screen printing. As he strayed away from graffiti, stencils soon became Parker's dominant form of artistic expression. Parker continues to create music and art influences every aspect of his life. Currently much of his work has combined spray paint stencils with water color or acrylic under painting. The graffiti and pop culture influence remain very evident in his work. Parker is constantly searching for new mediums, new methods, new influences and new ways to inculcate creativity into his daily life.
