Louie Gong (Nooksack), a self-taught artist who gained national recognition for drawing cultural art on shoes, steps outside his comfort zone to participate in his first fine art exhibition. His trend-setting aesthetic weaves together artistic influences from his mixed heritage with ideas from his urban environment to make statements about identity that reverberate across cultural, geographic and socioeconomic borders.

Jonathan Wakuda Fischer combines elements from pop culture, Japanese folklore and the aesthetic of ukiyo-e woodblock prints in graffiti inspired paintings with layers of homage to explore cultural dualities. Fischer is known throughout the community for his distinctive murals, including the current KEXP mural. He currently works as the resident muralist for Seattle firm SkB Architects, a unique partnership between worlds of art and architecture.
