Incredible (Non-)Edible Easter Egg Artists
Artist Trevor Mezak
Defined and recognized for his elaborate use of texture in his signature impressionistic style, Trevor Mezak is an artist who is driven to create every day. “I feel the day is missing something if I don’t,” says the artist. Fascinated with the ocean since he was a child, he has a passion for painting beach scenes, which are most often memories from recent surf trips. Born in southern California, Mezak has been painting since his teens. His self-taught style has evolved through his vast experience with mediums and techniques. Acrylics, because of their vivid color and texture, have proven to be his medium of choice. While he notes William Debilzan and Aldo Luongo as artists who inspire him, Mezak draws much of his inspiration from his experiences in the world and the moods they establish. “Before painting, I have to go surfing. It puts me in the right place. When you’re in a good mood, it shows in your art. My studio is filled with loud music, the smell of coffee, my black lab at my side, and the occasional kid running through.” Trevor is currently partnering with Collector’s Editions and Disney Fine Art. His works are quickly growing in popularity and selling in galleries internationally.
Artist Robin Hiers
Robin Hiers paints beautiful people doing fun things. Raised by artistic parents that encouraged her natural talent — she has never questioned her role in life. She simply paints art that makes people happy. Robin has a signature style that you can recognize right away. Bold and confidant, very direct, her lines are created with no hesitation. Influenced by pop culture, fashion, the beach life, and beautiful people – her art is a reflection of the times. Currently residing in her native Laguna Beach — she is capturing the life that is a feast for the eyes.
Artist James Galindo
James Galindo is an emerging young artist from Palm Springs, California. He began drawing at a very young age and eventually decided to pursue a college degree in painting. During his senior year in high school, James enrolled in figure drawing classes at College of the Desert in Palm Desert, California. It was then that he discovered his passion for figurative art, which encouraged him to pursue a higher education at Laguna College of Art & Design. After eight years of intense study, James graduated with a Master’s Degree in Fine Art. He has been the recipient of multiple scholarships and awards. James currently lives and works in Los Angeles, and teaches drawing and painting classes at Laguna College of Art & Design and Los Angeles Academy of Figurative Art.
