Hannah Adamaszek injects some new talent and energy in to the street art scene with her female portraits which bring a painterly style often found in contemporary art to the street art scene. Earthy tones and harmonious contours have earned Admaszek’s works a place on many an outside space, from the unique Brandalism project to StreetFest and UpFest. And her unique canvases offer a calm feminine approach and emotionally-charged contribution to an art scene predominantly saturated by many a male artist.
“I think a lot of urban art can be visually sharp – I’m not sure if this is due to the male prevalence or part of its makeup but my work definitely brings in a softer female touch with emotion being brought into a sometimes a more aggressive world.”

Kristin Gaudio Endsley is an abstract artist whose work has quickly caught the eye of crit- ics and collectors alike. Her work has been showing consistently since arriving in London in 2011. She was one of hundred emerging artists selected to particpate in The Other Art Fair, and recently had her work published in British Vogue.
Influenced by organic and manmade patterns and colors found in both internal and external environments, her works ask the viewer to participate in interpretation. This starts with most viewers’ first question regarding abstract art: What am I looking at? Beyond the basics, viewers are also asked to contemplate more existential questions: What’s inside? What’s outside? What’s intentional? What happens by chance?
Raised near the rolling shores of Chesapeake Bay, Kristin’s perspective was strongly shaped by the visual clash of industry and nature in and around the bustling American port town of Baltimore. Descended from a long line of artists and craftsmen, Kristin has a family history in highly tactile expressions of creativity. Her grandfather was a furniture maker; her mother is a mixed media artist. Family influences in materials and craftsman- ship helped fuel Kristin’s interest in textiles— both natural and synthetic textures and patterns. As a result of this interest, in addition to her fine arts work, Kristin obtained her Bachelor of Science in Fashion Design at Virginia Tech.
Kristin is constantly working towards fresh ideas for new bodies of work and continues to take on commissions for collectors worldwide. She currently lives and works in East Lon- don. Kristin is an advocate of “shop local” which consists of supporting local businesses and artists. www.krgendsley.com
