DS Kinsel: A talented and award winning cultural agitator, DS Kinsel brings his latest collection Brain Bone Blood to Red Dot Miami.

Bold brush strokes, text based pattern, and intense surface texture are the key features of the paintings. Kinsel is the co-founder of BOOM Concepts and his work has garnered attention for its focus on space keeping, urban tradition, hip-hop, informalism and cultural re-appropriation
Jason Sauer: Raised in both derby garage culture and contemporary art circles, Sauer creates transformative sculptures, crafted from crashed and painted cars of demolition derbies, merging chaos and beauty. With an olive branch and dove motif symbolizing peace, his work embodies resilience and renewal amidst destruction.

A classically trained Sculptor holding a BFA, Shawn creates everything from large outdoor sculptures to portrait busts. Focusing on the human form, Shawn conveys emotion and a message in his work. His latest piece titled “Memento mori” is designed to remind the viewer of their mortality and shortness of life and to be forced on their goals. That we all go through changes and to embrace the beauty of life even when death is around. Coming from a rural area Shawn defies the social norms by pursuing his art career. But living close to nature Shawn gains insight to the structure of nature’s beauty and majesty. Shawn has participated in state and national shows in recent years. “Looking to the great masters in the past, I take lessons to create something new. Theses’ are timeless lessons that everyone can relate too”
