Art by Mambo. Mambo builds his compositions using a unique visual vocabulary based on his fascination with humanity. Flavien Demarigny, also known as Mambo, is a Los Angeles-based artist with international influences. Mambo was born in Chile to a French father and a Hungarian mother, and was raised in Latin America. He started his artistic career in Paris in the mid 80s as a street artist and graphic designer. He cites funk and jazz music as well as the New Wave era style as important creative influences during his time in France. This early period in his art practice continues to inform his canvas paintings and murals. Mambo consistently releases videos to allow people to get closer to his state of mind when he is sketching or creating new work.
Art by Eric Doeinger. Warhol’s iconic soup can gets an update in this pop-art tribute. Eric’s “Recreations” series challenges notions of authorship and intellectual property in contemporary art.
Eric Doeringer started out slinging exact replicas of famous artworks outside of galleries, museums, and fairs. Through these “bootlegs” and “recreations,” Doeringer challenges the notions of ownership and brand while exploiting grey areas in the laws of selling art. Though his work outrages some, he has cultivated a large following and even has artists approaching him to be replicated. His work has been featured in numerous media outlets such as Forbes, The New York Times, Artforum, and the Financial Times. Eric Doeringer once made a series of fake VIP passes that worked for Miami Art Basel, allowing people to access exclusive exhibits and events.
