Internationally recognized contemporary public artist and award-winning painter Alex Brewer, known as HENSE, has been creating colorful works of art combining techniques of street art and abstract painting for nearly two decades.
Brewer’s artworks incorporate line, shape, and gesture to creative abstract compositions that are invigorated by the quick pace and commentary of street culture. His works in the realm of public arts, grants, commissions, and cross-media connections have landed him local, national, and international public art projects and commissions. Brewer has received numerous notable commissions from the city of Atlanta, Peru and Arizona, and from local big names like Alton Brown and Fay Gold.
Atlanta-born artist, Peter Ferrari, is founder and curator of Forward Warrier and cofounder and gallery manager at Facet Gallery, a multidisciplinary arts space in Atlanta’s Old Fourth Ward.
“He’s been an essential part of the ongoing public art conversation in Atlanta for a very long time—a large-scale mural artist before there were any formal organizations in place for it. A former Living Walls contributor, Ferrari paints his vibrant colors and slightly-psychedelic patterns along the city’s buildings,” — Vice.com
In addition to his contributions to Shops Around Lenox, you can find Ferrari’s work around town at places like the Mews on Edgewood Ave, W Hotel – Midtown, BeltLine and more.
