Bio: My name is Yusef Yohance Woodruff, and I am an Artist, Musician, and Producer based in Atlanta, GA. From a young age, I discovered my passion for the arts, which was nurtured and encouraged by my family’s unwavering support for my creative pursuits. Since the age of 7, I have been playing guitar and producing music, As of now I teach guitar to all ages. I am constantly driven by a desire to push my creative boundaries.
Emyerz (Edward B. Myers), a Fine Artist, Furniture Designer and Poet dedicated his life to the profession of Art and Design for 40 years. For 15 of those years, he ran a successful Custom Interiors & Furniture Design business: Lux Mezzo in Atlanta, GA.
His professional creative progression turned from Master Upholsterer and Furniture Maker towards a more art centric approach creating ‘sculptural furniture’ where each unique piece carries its own narrative.
Construction components derive from recycled wood, furniture parts or found objects; repurposed as utilitarian art, he began producing mixmedia artwork.
Subsequently, Lux Mezzo furniture morphed into Emyerz Art + Design which achieved success selling his furniture and mixmedia painting series: Quasi Cubiste, Afrikan Kurrents and Mineyez. His Collectors continue to acquire his work.
In efforts to reach a broader audience, a brief stay in Los Angeles and frequent excursions to New York, Emyerz moved to Brooklyn where he lived for the last five years of his life.
Most notably in January 2015 he was a part of the New York City Parks’ Ebony Society’s group exhibit, The Great Migration, at the Arsenal Gallery Central Park and subsequently the 2016 exhibit: America: The Legacy of African American in Public Service.
Emyerz has also self-published a collection of love poems titled: When Beauty Whispers, distributed through Lulu Publishing. EMyerz, transitioned to the universal realm, July 20, 2021, after a heroic battle with cancer. He leaves a legacy of ethereal artistry and an extensive body of work that is maintained by his estate executors, AJ Favors (Life Partner/Soulmate) and Jonell Myers Williams (Sister/Soulmate).
My name is Bryce Landingham. I am an artist in Atlanta, GA originally from Milwaukee, Wisconsin. I am a lover of love, music, and people. My artistry exemplifies the essence of these categories. I aspire to be an inspiration to those who love any aspect of art and be a positive remnant to those I encounter through life. Music is my go-to therapy when everything seems to go downhill in life. I use music to fuel my energy and equate to its lyrics which allows me to express that emotion on paper or canvas. My musical taste ranges preferably across old-school 70s R&B, Jazz music, Alternative R&B, and most Hip-Hop. My visual artistry is also heavily influenced by hyperrealism as well as expressionism.
