Timo Fahler (b.1978, Tulsa OK, United States) is a sculptor living and working in Los Angeles California. His work is made using plaster/hydrocal, ceramics, steel, wood, and found objects. Fahler combines mold made forms with collected materials, and translates them into sculpture based on his current ideas and understanding of formalist principles. He received an MFA from the University of California Los Angeles in 2012, and a BFA from the Kansas City Art Institute in 2009. Fahler’s one person exhibitions include LA><Art, 2015.
Jaime “Vyal” Reyes began painting graffiti art in the late 80’s and painting under the name Vyal since 1990 when he started developing his trade mark style and can control. In 1993, he was invited by Chaz Bojorquez to participate in his first gallery show at 01 gallery in Hollywood, after which he began to focus on exhibiting his work and pursuing his art as a full time profession. Now, over 20 years later, Vyal is considered one of the best Graffiti artists in Los Angeles, and his work has now been exhibited at museums and galleries including MOCA, and in more than 30 cities in the U.S. as well as international exhibitions in Germany, Mexico D.F., and most recently Israel and Palestine. Vyal currently leads a weekly workshop at Self Help Graphics, teaching his refined spray can techniques to youth and adults alike.
