John Paul O'Grodnick better known as JPO is a Visual artist based out of New York City known for his vibrant and elusive painting style. JPO translates raw emotions into colorful, powerful and expressive works of art while visually connecting concepts of human perception.

JPO’s passion for the arts emerged at a young age, for he was inspired by the eclectic tastes of his father and sister, who introduced him to improvisational styles of music and meditation.

JPO draws much of his inspiration from his zeal to the practice of meditation. When he paints, he channels his third eye.

His work has been shown in galleries across the country and his murals, painted on famous walls in New York city. JPO has also collaborated with such brands as: GAP, MTV, The Grammys, Lululemon and Saks Fifth Ave


B.D. White entered the art scene by painting hundreds of streetlight bases throughout New York City. Despite his spinal injury at age eighteen, he earned a reputation as a prolific street artist. He is also one of the founders of Sold Magazine, a quarterly printed magazine for artists by artists highlighting the unsung talents of the art world.

From the beginning B.D. knew he was always going to be an artist. What he didn’t count on was a sporting accident at the age of 18 that left him with a broken back, paralyzed and in a wheelchair. The art world is highly competitive and getting the initial show or big break is sometimes slow in coming. Undeterred, B.D. decided to take his works directly to the public via the gallery known as the streets of New York.  

What some call “street art,” B.D. dubs “mindful vandalism” and despite his inability to easily flee if discovered, B.D. began to create compelling art on the streets in both Manhattan and Brooklyn. Taking advantage of his seated position, his works were uniquely placed very low on walls and street lamps, areas where others may not have thought of using.
