Micah LeBrun is a self-taught Bay Area artist who considers his understanding of art to be derived from what he visually identifies in everyday life. His influences range from the line-oriented work of Picasso, the bold graphic nature of Warhol, and the dominant colorful brushstrokes of Peter Max to modern-day movements such as car culture and graffiti. A self-prescribed wanderer regarding the creative process, he believes that each idea should be executed in the medium and style that best relays its intention.

Lee Harvey Roswell is a self-taught artist from Freefall, New York, whose work is noted for its blend of angst and humor. Themes of death and entropy, tribulation and futility run amok in his distinctly surreal, often-slapstick/ often-nightmarish world. The result is at once mocking and melancholic. Lee now lives in Hawaii & San Francisco, and his work is shown, collected and published internationally.

Possessing a multi-faceted set of interests, Davis began painting in 1997, and attributes much of his inspiration to watching his mother pursue craft projects during his childhood, and immersing himself in art history throughout his career. From helping his mother with activities ranging from woodworking, hand-tooling leather, and remodeling the family's home, to engaging with ancient art and Netherlandish painting from the Northern Renaissance, Davis is a self-taught painter, who continues to render complex paintings of surrealist life, embedded with symbols of mortality, folly, and hubris, fixated within whimsical compositions.

Alynn-Mags are very proud to present ‘Lullaby’, a fine art exhibit, debuting at 111 Minna Gallery in San Francisco, CA, opening Friday, July 12th, 2019. By definition, the word Lullaby refers to a soothing song or piece of music that is played for children. Lullabies are also often used to develop communication skills and emotional intent. Amandalynn was inspired by a beautiful Lullaby written by her friend, Phyllis Whitney and sung by the very talented Venetia P. The simple yet meaningful words and melody of this particular Lullaby evoke an emotion of peace and connectedness to everyone. For Amandalynn, that is something that she also hopes to achieve with her new series of work for this exhibition. She shared this Lullaby with Lady Mags, and together the duo has been dreaming up a visual display of artwork intended to inspire and ease the viewer, just as the perfect Lullaby can soothe one’s inner child.
