 Adrian “AWER” Garcia is a Phoenix, AZ born street artist and curator who
specializes in graffiti and large-scale mural painting. His style is influenced
by his love for both realism, and abstract art. Garcia was first introduced to the creative process at the age of nine through a family member who gave him a drawing. Then at the age of 17, he discovered the vast world of street art. He has been motivated to continue his art journey through the love and support of his daughter and is continually inspired by his two young grandsons. When either working from his studio on a canvas painting or out in the field on a monumental size wall, he prefers spray paint, paint markers, and acrylic as his mediums of choice. His murals can be seen all over the Valley of the Sun, and he has been commissioned by Amazon, Walmart, and the US Military for murals in their facilities. He also spends his time curating a rotation of artists painting live, himself included, at a local Phoenix coffee shop, Tres Leches Café and activates artists at the Almeria Mural Alley in conjunction with the Oak Street Mural Alley in the historic Coronado District in Phoenix. “As an artist, I see the world differently than most people. I am inspired by even the simplest daily routine. I feel like I have so many ideas but there is never enough time to get them down on canvas.”

theresa 'risk-a' perez

At just thirteen years old, I am already a force to be reckoned with on the dance floor. My name is Theresa Perez aka B-Girl Risk-A, and from the moment I took my first steps onto the dance floor at the age of seven, I knew that dancing would become more than just a hobby—it would become my passion, my calling.
For the past seven years, I've dedicated myself wholeheartedly to the art of movement, exploring various dance styles until I found the one that truly spoke to my soul: breakdancing. For the past four years, breakdancing has been my muse, my driving force, the rhythm to which my heart beats.
From practicing with some of the valley's best breakers to battling it out in dance competitions, I've poured every ounce of my being into perfecting my craft. Every spin, every twist, every gravity-defying move is a testament to the dedication and love I have for this art form.
Despite the challenges and obstacles, I've faced along the way, from doubters to setbacks, my passion for breakdancing only continues to grow stronger. With each performance, I aim not only to showcase my skills but also to inspire others to follow their dreams, no matter how young or old they may be. For me, breakdancing isn't just a hobby—it's a way of life.
