Alison Perez, aka Miss Zukie, is a contemporary artist from NYC and the creator and designer of the Zukie character.
Perez, says that "Zukies are mysterious creatures that do not talk. They communicate with thought bubbles and facial expressions. Zukies intend to generate emotions through their visual thoughts and that is how they create an emotional bond with us."
JPO is a New York-based artist with a passion for painting what he calls “beautiful dirty industrial street art”. His passion for the arts emerged in his hometown of Fairfield County, Connecticut, where JPO was inspired by the eclectic tastes of his father and sister, who introduced him to improvisational styles of music.
