Angry Woebots: Aaron Martin was born on the island Oahu, Hawaii. Most of his childhood was spent growing up in California and Nevada and returned to Oahu during his senior year in High school. In 1999 a car accident changed everything. His life threatening experience inspired him to leave the island once again and moved to Seattle. Inspired by the rain and being indoors he found himself dabbling in art again. After a year he returned to Hawaii with a new perspective in life, did his first art show in 2002 and hasn't stop since. He has shown in galleries up and down California, the east coast, Hawaii, and China. He also sews costumes, stuffed animals, sculpts, and dabbles in graphic design.
"Angry Woebots was never a name it was a concept of what I created, from my accident until now taking something from my dark space and flipping it
into something positive, my life experience's gained me momentum into following something strange and that is not what's in front of me but what was standing next to me, life it's self. The stress, love and lost it's all a party to enjoy, through hardship comes its rewards." That's what's in the name." -Aaron Martin

2H: Using the name of his brother's graffiti crew back in high school, the Seattle based artist 2H decided to keep the name alive and now uses it as
his alias. Whether on the street, live painting, working on gallery shows, or being involved in worthy commercial projects, 2H's art is an evolutiono
of numerous styles he's incorporated throught his time thus far on this planet. His characters expresss emotions he's had to deal with living in
downtown Seattle next to a major freeway, its vibrations and noise a constant distraction and reminder of urban life during all hours of the day.

Phoneticontrol: Phoneticontrol (born Eric John William Broers in 1975) is a San Francisco based artist curator, muralist and clothing designer. With a strong sense of reuse and recycling themes throughout his work, his creations are often composed on found objects or other items brought home after a victorious trip to the local Salvation Army. Working intuitively and almost organically, he packs in cords, fins, and add tons of sci-fi doo-dads wherever they fit, almost as if the subject matter itself is born of salvaged parts. Phoneticontrol's artwork has been shown the world over, with most notable exhibitions in the US, the UK, Australia, China, Italy, the Philippines, and France. Aside from showing his own work worldwide, he has been collaborating on projects with other like minded artists and clients.
