AR Mini, Amanda Raynes & Bagfry

Amanda Raynes is an artist based in Costa Mesa, California.  Originally from New England, Amanda moved to Southern California and completed her BFA at Laguna College of Art and Design in 2014.  She draws inspiration from old family photographs, plants, and almost anything with a compelling history.  She aims to combine natural, organic forms with bold and graphic elements in much of her work. 

 

Born and raised in Phoenix Arizona, Aaron Brown (a.k.a. Bagfry) is currently based in Costa Mesa, CA.  Aaron relocated in order to attend Laguna College of Art and Design, graduating with a BFA in 2015.  With an emphasis on graphic, cultural imagery, Aaron aims to build a brand ranging from paintings and murals to apparel and skateboard decks.  It is clear in his work that he believes that art should be fun and come naturally, focusing on improvisation and problem solving.  His stylistic approach and use of bright, psychedelic colors and shapes reflects his personality as an artist.
