Jermaine Percy Neal, Fashion Institute of Technology graduate, visionary, and true Washingtonian uses his artistic skills as a mechanism of survival. Neal paints for his life! "In the intricate details of my paintings, you will find the pain and passion that I see through my eyes." Taking a closer look at his works, the viewer will begin to see depictions of eyes, arrows, and crosses representing pivotal points in Neal's life. The viewer is encouraged to evoke the supernatural when ingesting Neal’s visual buffet.

Nayda Pirela is a graphic illustrator using both technology and passion to materialize her fantasies and express her emotions. Based in both Washington D.C. and Los Angeles California, Nayda uses her bi-coastal aesthetics to emanate her personal reflections.  Her desire to both comprehend and cope with her everyday experiences now has the opportunity to gift our metropolis with renditions of human behavior, culture, and spirituality.
