Kaiser Kamal is a Bangladeshi -American artist resides in New York. He has had several solo exhibitions and numerous group shows all over the world.
Writing artist Will Kaplan combines different mediums, techniques, and text to probe boundaries. This New Jersey native grew up exploring highway hemmed nature preserves; tensions between the organic and the human-made manifest in his work.

He currently serves as a board member at the Manhattan Graphics Center, and works for the art-handling company, Maquette Fine Art Services.
