Join me on the picket line and collective bargaining table!

Hanging out with under 7 years old and over 70 years old is my sweet spot. Untainted by heteronormative and capitalism. "Unschooled" by white-washed narratives.

P.S. We have more than 5 sense.

From the artist:

I am glad that you see and read me, it means that I did not go through this long creative and human path in vain! I am an artist from Ukraine! Which brings the World to the World a message that Freedom is the only true Path, freedom in manifestation and in painting - it is identical! I paint pictures that are not planned by the plot, this is only the transfer of data from space to the viewer! And I hope to create with my work that atmosphere that you will remember for a long time! See you! I'm happy to be with you!

From the artist:

1st. i conjure a thought, a mere flicker of energy originating deep inside my personal conscience firing brain waves. this thought has no weight, you can not hold it, but most intriguing the absolute fact that in your personal current universe, this thought i brewed up does not even slightly exist in any way. everything you do, see, hear, taste, touch, feel is an experience, and the thought i have is fairly difficult to explain in words.
The only way you can see, hold, or truly understand the vision of my Minds Eye, and ultimately trigger as an experience registered within your personal universe....
I have to create it in front of you.
I can take this invisible, weightless, undetectable, illusive spec of nothing that never was, never has been, and currently not even a quark of an atom of a cell.... Seemingly impossible in theory, I can make it come to fruition, materialize this sole thought into actual matter... with weight, you can see it, even hold it, even own this creation that didnt even exist 20 min prior. Its no hoax because you saw every strand and ingrediant come together from being locked out from all except me. And that exact moment will be newest creation of existence, consuming space in this intertwined and entangled world consisted of experiences all of our minds encounters in a grand collaboration fed by enlightening everything possible, and level up by seeking and adjusting enlightenment on the fly.
in short... talk is cheap, so, just watch me bring to life what has never been, and make something that never was made to begin with.


Briana is an artist from the Bay Area who works primarily in acrylic, graphite, and dance. Her practice focuses on the emotional, the abstract, and design that come naturally from the artistic process./sf

From the artist:

Our Mind is the ability to create thought. Therefore as human beings we are Creators. Art opens our minds and gives us the ability to express our inherent nature. Thank you for being here tonight and all of the support.
