From a young age, Martin Quen studied the works of Mark Rothko, Henri Matisse and Vasily Kandinsky. Through family connections, a local Atlanta artist took a keen interest in young Quen's artistic development and helped develop his unique compositional style. This exposure to the artist's lifestyle taught Quen that creativity and artistic dreams can be realized.
At the age of 18, he became active in graffiti competitions and evolved to be a world recognized graffiti artist. He began traveling to Madrid, Miami and New York for competitions which exposed him to a great variety of styles and influences. His painting style evolved from muted pastels into a bold color palette as his graffiti style emerged. His works emphasize sophisticated compositions with bursts of color. His constant creativity showcases why he receives widespread appreciation and remains one of Deljou's most requested artists. Quen's work can be found in both national and international collections.
Sam Evans grew up in Mission Beach, California in the 70s. Painting didn't become a focus until her first year at University of Southern California at Santa Cruz. Her major became painting in her second year of college.
Upon graduation, Evans moved to Atlanta, Georgia and has found inspiration in the drastically different landscape. The lines and symmetry of this new place allow new concepts to unfold on the canvas. Evans occasionally paints more traditional landscapes but abstracts with tones emanating from nature are her primary source of inspiration.
Evans is a favorite with collectors seeking subtle color tones without a compromise in artistic depth. Her work is collected nationally and internationally.
