About LEFT E
Born and raised in Los Angeles, Estevan Machado, also known as Left E, is an artist whose distinct style draws inspiration from the work of his father, Mister CARTOON — evoking a youthful perspective on a rich and familiar aesthetic. Left E’s work was on display at The Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels in Downtown Los Angeles, a canvas for which he won an award for at an early age. He was recently featured in the Legacy group show in San Diego at the California Center for the Arts. Left E’s airbrushing skills have lent themselves to projects with Nike, Born x Raised, and UNDFTD, as well as personalized apparel for the likes of Kevin Hart, Odell Beckham Jr., Jhené Aiko and Anderson Paak. Left E currently attends Cal State Northridge, with a focus on art and design. His future ambitions are to become a multi-disciplinary artist and animator. He graduated from St. Genevieve High School in Panorama City, California in 2021.
About Kristofferson San Pablo
Kristofferson San Pablo is a Filipino-American artist based in Los Angeles whose work reflects a youthful and autobiographical viewpoint of popular culture. In contrast to the portraits of the people in his life, as well as his observations of California culture, San Pablo often explores images from media taken with a conceptual art and 1980’s appropriation art approach through painting and drawing. Most of the imagery from his work evoke ideas about his Asian-American identity met with ideas about intimacy, authority, humor, classism and piracy. To San Pablo, those oppositions serve as a way to create a type of light hearted but also serious narrative that illustrate his experience growing up in California counterculture scenes. Aside from his fine art practice, San Pablo often works as a designer and art director for the music industry with clients such as Gucci Mane, Lizzo, Rico Nasty, adidas, Delicious Vinyl, Warner Music and Coachella. San Pablo received his MFA from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California and currently lives and works in Los Angeles.
