ART BATTLE L.A. : Cut and Paste





Competitor: ANDREI COJOCARU 
Andrei Cojocaru is a collage artist and illustrator, originally from Bucharest, Romania, now living in Paris, France. He has no formal art training,  but when he was in Law School he needed a creative outlet, a way to escape a well regulated, sometimes boring reality to a world where he could create his own rules.
He describes his work as a mostly random mix of ideas, shapes, colours, letters, numbers and patterns and he loves the idea of remix: taking things apart, mixing them up and putting them back together to create something new, unexpected and hopefully pretty to look at. In the near future he would like to experiment with new techniques (such as screeprinting) and start working on editorial illustrations, album covers and t-shirt designs.

ART BATTLE L.A. : Celebrity Portrait





Competitor: MICHAEL SHANTZ 
Michael Shantz is a practicing artist from the west-coast of Canada. Raised in an artistic family where he watched his mom, dad, and both grandmas do art, he learned to get his hand into every aspect of art, from painting to toy making, jewlery to custom clothing.  This drive to constantly create has taken him around the world doing art, from the UK where he was inhouse designer for Drop Dead clothing, to Montreal where he was asked to join the now massive art crew, En Masse.
Still living as a starving artist, but never happier, Michael Shantz now runs Grimjob, and Vampire Club, clothing lines and outlets for his art.
