Greg Ivens is a Mixed Media/Digital Artist living in Napanee, Ontario. With a focus on bright and vibrant colour palettes, Greg’s primary medium is Liquid Light, a live artform first pioneered in the 1960’s Psychedelic Rock era. In an attempt to meld these live methods with digital distortion, mirroring and glitch art techniques, Greg creates unique and vivid images that span the spectrum of colour. With professional experience as a performer, educator and freelance artist, Greg combines these skills to merge digital and physical art, via NFTs and Live Art performances.
Liam Mills is a multidisciplinary designer and all-around creative, with a love for celebrating and promoting arts, culture, community, and out-of-the-box thinking. I have been a graphic designer for 12 years, and have professional experience public speaking, large-scale event creation, and more. Liam is working full-time as a Graphic Designer in downtown Kingston, but when he isn’t doing that, you can find him getting up to something creative - dabbling in visual arts, music, clothing design, and more.
