A spray paint artist from Plum borough, he’s become well-known in the community for his “banksy-esque” distopian imagery. A lover of hip-hop, Durty is embroiled into the scene, producing work for the likes KRS-1 and Rakim. As he continues to push the envelope, his work becomes a statement against the status quo.
An artist, educator, and curator, Carolyn Pierotti is drilled into every facet of the art scene.

A curator that has called Pittsburgh his home since 2010, Sean Beauford’s shows are visual masterpieces, collaborating with artists to create new pieces to fit his vision for the show instead of using already finished works.
