The duo art show runs in conjunction with Artform Studio’s “Tastemakers,” a collaborative monthly event featuring resident designers and stylists of Artform Studio. This unique event calls upon each participant to unite their specialized skills, fostering an experience like no other. Hair styling and cuts by Sherry Younge adds an intriguing spin on live art.

Exceptional designer cupcakes by Little Sweeties and ChaCha Covers Nail Art will also be available, each drawing inspiration from the works on display.

This family- friendly event is FREE and open to the public.

Alfie Ebojo, better known as Alfie Numeric, is a multimedia artist and art advocate, working and residing in Los Angeles, California. Her work has been shown both nationally and internationally and is a regular showcased artist at Thumbprint Gallery in San Diego. She currently holds a seat in the Board of Directors at FilAm Arts and is the Programming Chairperson for the nonprofit art organization where she works closely with community leaders, talented artists and esteemed academics in providing local programs and events to help advance the arts and diverse cultural heritage of Filipinos through arts services, presentation, and education.

 “All the Right Weaponry” stems from the swirling thoughts of igniting the female spirit and healing after reading Sun Tzu’s “Art of War” with Bell Hooks’ “All About Love.” This series is a reflection of Alfie Ebojo’s inner dialogue of the deconstruction and reconstruction the definition of what “female empowerment” means to her.

Stephanie Takemoto is a Los Angeles based, self-taught painter and illustrator who dreams of a life filled with endless creative possibilities. Her style is highly influenced by her mixed heritage, growing up amongst Japanese pop culture, manga, toys, urban vinyl, art nouveau, illustration, geek culture, pop surrealism, film, and the complexities of the female psyche.

Stephanie has exhibited in group shows across the U.S. and is a reoccurring artist with Thumbprint Gallery.

"She Versus I" is a collection of recent and past illustrative works examining the various aspects of the female psyche. Her signature can be found in the maze-like spiraled tresses adorning each of her painted muses. Her female characters are often portrayed in a quiet inner conflict of longing, desire and self-contemplation.

The exhibition will run from Feb 21 – March 21, 2014.
