Meet the Artists
Mykal Aubry: Inspired by Primal Light, Mykal Aubry's Visions of Origin invoke peace within the heart and reflect the majesty of being alive. Born in Southern California in 1973, Mykal loved to draw animals as a young child, specifically focusing on owls. Upon graduating from Otis College of Art & Design, he went to work for Warner Bros. Pictures as an art director in feature film advertising. After many years of deep exploring and opening to his inner Self, Mykal was inspired one day in 2003 to begin expressing his inner universe, through paintings that reflected his intrinsic passion for the Divine Radiance and Beauty that we all are, as Human Beings. Check out Mykal's website Visions of Origin
Arjuna Noor: I do large scale, dramatic art installations using a patented method that makes the art change as you view it. The idea being, rather than put a piece of art on the wall, make the wall the art making it come live and be a source of inspiration, mood, leisure, chill, lounge. I create art in the computer in conjunction with LED lighting which when applied to the finished art on canvas, glass, fabric gives you the illusion that your world is changing in front of your eyes.

Born in Tashkent, Uzbekistan –Central Asia /foothills of The Himalayas.
His first art teacher was his father, Chaim Buchwald, an artist and Holocaust
survivor who supported his family painting stage sets for Tashkent opera productions and creating Soviet political art posters. By night Chaim painted portraits and landscapes.
After meeting his spiritual teacher in 1971, Marek traveled to India and studied traditional arts with some of the last living masters of these traditions in rural South India.
Lea Petmezas As a landscape painter, I started to explore the outer landscape up and away in the sky. Using images from the Hubble telescope I became fascinated with the loose and colorful forms, creating their beauty using acrylic and water on loose canvas, demonstrating the movement and vaporous qualities. Lea Petmezas
Betsy Enzensberger : Born into generations of artists, Betsy has been creatively expressing herself from a very young age. Extensive travel and living abroad have also influenced her as she immerses herself in new places and begins to view the world in alternative ways. Using primarily acrylics as a medium, Betsy’s paintings are a collection of dynamic abstracts that play with luminescence and movement to invoke reactions. Inspired by the warm tones of the earth and the sensations of cultural discovery, her works are a continual experimentation in texture, light, layering and reflection. Whether in form, composition or color, these primal details continue to take shape in her pieces. Betsy Enzensberger
Joe DiVincenzo: Malibuite Joe DiVincenzo has long established himself as a top-notch artist, both locally and abroad. Dale M. Lanzone, president of the International Public Art Marlborough Chelsea in New York, once referred to DiVincenzo's picture boxes-a combination of poetry, paints and personal possessions-as "a paradoxical relationship of poetic construction, wisdom, wit, humor, tragedy, mystery and invention."
