Ben Tolman (dA username: bentolman) has been a member of deviantART for six years. He lives and works in Washington DC, where he also received his BFA from the Corcoran College of Art in 2005. In 2006, Ben started a collaborative art project called ‘The Antipodes Project’, an ongoing, evolving collaboration between artists from all over the world, dedicated to exploring the antipodes of the collective mind. This project combines the efforts of dozens of hand-selected artists, over the course of several years, creating inner landscapes of unprecedented detail using only black micron ink pens and panels of vellum bristol paper joined to create a single image. More art from Ben’s portfolio as well as art from the Antipodes Project can be viewed here.
Bomba Estereo, the Columbian electro-folk-hiphop rockstars, made their mark on Coachella and now they’re heading to The Roxy May 24!
They combine traditional Columbian Cumbia music with electro beats and a reggae-esque female lead singer. The band’s live performance will blow your mind with the psychedelic backdrop and beats that will put you in a dance party trance.
They’ve played the huge stages at all the major festivals and we’re expecting quite the party for this one. The show is being presented by Club Mercy and tickets are on sale now. Get them online with Ticketweb here or by calling The Roxy box office at 310-278-9457.
Ryan Mauskopf (dA username: RYE-BREAD) is an illustrator, graphic designer, musician and digital/broadcast media expert living and working in New York City. He has been a member of deviantART for 6 years, is kind of a smart ass, has trouble remembering names and much to the dismay of others, is a habitual whistler. Currently, Ryan is the lead graphic designer for The Onion News Network’s online videos and also freelances in his spare time. His tools of the trade are a glass of wine and a lot of work - clearly all of that hard works is paying off. View his full gallery here.
