DISCOVER “VISION QUEST, a journey to happiness”

When corporate executive Jane Ramsey found herself facing sudden retirement, she embraced the opportunity to embark on a long-awaited metaphysical journey of discovery and profound reinvention. With one foot grounded in the rational world, and the other in the ether, she was free to pursue her lifelong dream of becoming an artist and wisdom-seeker. Experimenting with new mediums of painting and finding a connection with her deeper self, she yearned to better understand why we are here and what life is all about, further seeking guidance from spiritual teachers Deepak Chopra and Jean Houston.

Now with the release of VISION QUEST: a journey to happiness, she invites readers inside her spiritual ‘vision quest’ as she studies, travels, finds optimal health, deeper love and seeks answers to life’s mysteries, culminating with the realization that it’s an inside job––the answers are always available when we tap into our inner soul.

Lil Poppa “Man of the Year”

INTRODUCING LIL POPPA’S NEW SINGLE “MAN OF THE YEAR” OUT NOW! LISTEN ON ALL PLATFORMS HERE

NEW PROJECT UNDER INVESTIGATION 2 — OUT THIS SPRING!

With his powerful wordplay and soulful storytelling, Lil Poppa turns each of his songs into an up-close account of life in his hometown of Jacksonville, FL. Today the dynamite young talent has released the first offering off his upcoming new project Under Investigation 2 (out this Spring) — a powerful anthem in “Man of The Year.”

LISTEN TO “MAN OF THE YEAR” by LIL POPPA

At just 18-years-old, Lil Poppa has already drawn major attention for tracks like “Purple Hearts” — an independent release that’s organically amassed over 2.6 million YouTube views, all on the strength of Poppa’s straight-from-the-heart delivery and hard-hitting lyrics. Signed by Interscope’s Executive Vice President Joie Manda, this new signing further cements the company’s proven track record in breaking exciting new rap artists; “Natural talent spotlights itself, and with Poppa’s raw talent and unwavering mission to get his message out — there seems to be no stopping Poppa’s undeniable rise. He’s one to watch,” adds Joie.

Poppa began rapping each week at church, joining a group of friends and sharing rhymes with a spiritual bent. At age 12, he built a makeshift studio in his closet and started self-recording with a laptop and Radio Shack microphone. With a string of mixtapes under his belt, Poppa made his breakthrough with a pair of singles from 2018: “Nightmare on Elm St.” and “Purple Hearts,” whose cinematic video revealed the real-life story behind the song.”

Michelle Cadreau x “Dominate”

Hip-hop lyricist Michelle Cadreau has developed a writing and rapping style with both subtlety and introspection to reflect her Native Canadian Indian and Polish ancestry. With four CDs to her credit, the Hamilton, Ontario melds hypnotic and soulful beats with her trademark urban poetry to create a performance style that is equally juxtaposed and complementary.

 

Given the native Indian name Blue Sky at birth by her grandmother (who was born on a reserve in northern Ontario), Cadreau has a tattoo on her back of blue zebra stripes in the shape of an eye with the inscription ‘Blue Sky.’ It is a physical reminder of her spiritual relationship to the earth and heavens and her family.

 

With musical influences that include Biggie Smalls, Eminem, Dr. Dre, and Snoop Dogg, Cadreau proudly emulates their style. Her ideas often come from a word or phrase that sparks inspiration and builds from there.  She also credits her parents for her love of music. Both played in bands most of their lives – her mother (a nurse by profession) is a vocalist and drummer and her father a vocalist and bass guitarist.

 

Like her mother, Cadreau also plays drums, having begun lessons at age five. She is also an accomplished painter and jewelry designer and has a degree in interior design. Her connection to the visual arts has been a foundation for her lyrics, which paint pictures of the joy and pain of life.

 

Among her releases is the breakout number, “Precipitation,” an articulate and explicit song that boldly details a rapper giving a slam performance for fans; “Like a Killer,” uses boxing to symbolize violence; and “Hip Hop Clerk” is a commentary on making it in the music industry.

 

Also included is “Ineffable,” a look at fan adulation; “Give Me The Prize,” a nod to intelligence and the rewards it can provide; and “Tallest Mountain,” a heartfelt look at making your way up the hip hop ladder. Her strongest response by far from both fans and critics online has been for the song “Ghetto Survival,” which equates creating powerful rap music with persistence and success.

 

Cadreau is using her lyrical deftness and distinct vantage point to create music that is true to her while paying homage to the complex backstory of rap and hip hop.

Claim Your Awesome Life Of Freedom! 

This powerful series of genuine, short-and-sweet conversations with successful entrepreneurs, artists, coaches, best-selling authors, and healers who have developed and crafted their work around living a meaningful life, they’ll get practical advice, tools, and strategies for becoming clearer on their vision for their work in the world, while aligning their mindset with abundance.

Specifically, they’ll learn:

•  How to get clear on their potential and purpose, without the overwhelm (no more feeling like it’s just impossible to figure out what to do next!).

• Strategies for profiting from their unique experience, so they can make money living their purpose.

Christina is the perfect person to host this interview series, because she knows what it’s like to wake up every day feeling the resistance that comes from knowing you aren’t on the right path, living your purpose. Her “rock bottom” came while being in a destructive relationship, holding three jobs, and still not having enough money, or enough time for her loved ones. When her little sister passed away, Christina became acutely and painfully aware of our limited time on this planet.

She hired a therapist and a coach to help her recognize her own power and potential. She learned how to become an active creator in her life—a life that would be in service to others. And by doing so, she discovered how to have the stability, flexibility, and freedom in her work that she so desired.

Now, Christina is committed to having it all! She plans her work around her life, not the other way around, and she’s hosting this interview series to empower people to recognize their power, move into their potential, and experience their purpose … so they can live the same life of FREEDOM and SERVICE that she does!

TUNJI ADENIYI-JONES × EXHIBITION A

Tunji Adeniyi-Jones

Blue Dancer

28″ x 22″, archival pigment print

Signed edition of 50

$250

BUY NOW

Tunji Adeniyi-Jones explores the visual motifs and mythologies from ancient West African art through his high-gloss paintings imbued with lyrical grace and effortless movement. Drawing inspiration from the aesthetic traditions from ancient West African Kingdoms, specifically the deities of the Yoruba (orisha), Adeniyi-Jones channels the spiritual undercurrent significant to these cultures via arrestingly beautiful painted characters who fill the entirety of the canvas, enfolded in saturated transportive hues.

His new Exhibition A print edition, Blue Dancer, is based on the painting of the same name that was recently featured in his solo exhibition at Nicelle Beauchene. A voluptuous figure is suspended in space, time, composition; navigating through a rich azure color field with an acrobatic otherworldly grace reminiscent of the orisha.

Tunji Adeniyi-Jones recently mounted a solo show at Nicelle Beauchene Gallery. Selected group shows include No Foundation (Toronto), Mulherin Gallery (New York), New Release Gallery (New York). and Golbourne Gallery (London). Adeniyi-Jones received his BFA from University of Oxford in 2014 and MFA from Yale University in 2017.

Rilke Guillén

Rilke Guillén 

Artist Plásticomexicanocatalán, spiritually and vitally grown and split between two ways of being, of thinking and feeling. He has exhibited his work in Spain and Mexico for many decades. 

Artist statement

I believe to express my vision of this splendor-decadent world that witnesses our existence, to try to move in the emotion of the viewer, to make him see inside yes; by the right and the reverse of the same glove of what is and exists and of what is not and also exists. Like the dream inside the eye and the outside eye. Like the truth and vertigo of the depth of the fractal-cosmic spiral. As a picture, as truth, as the line that springs from my pen. Creating images and sculptures gives meaning to my existence and being me from the inside-out, so I can communicate with others. I am an insatiable explorer of the plastic techniques that I am encountering in my path, such as painting, watercolor, engraving, sculpture, design, etc. My search in these different lands has the same objective: to find the voice that is capable of taking out this animal-human being, who is thronging in my heart. The fine perfume of the flower of my spirit.

Biography 

I remember as a child drawing horses and birds obsessively. The representation of images has always seemed to me as a matter that holds great power, as if in representing an object or being, somehow one was made with his skill, with his unique quality. I have always been surrounded by art. My father, in his poetic dimension, attracted artists from all disciplines to the house to share his presence and talent, some of them had a great impact on me. There was a very special one that made me the honor of taking me as a disciple for a short but unforgettable time: The great teacher Rodolfo Zanabria (who in peace rides in infinity with his maidens with long hair and beautiful faces). From him, I learned that the road is long and if you know how to walk you will reach the Magical Domain. Destiny had the willingness to be a Mexican-Catalan artist, spiritually and vitally grown and split between two ways of being, thinking and feeling. This has allowed me to exhibit and share my work on both sides of the Atlantic since my debut on the plastic scene, until today.
