Adam Harteau

Adam Harteau was born in Los Angeles, California in 1977. During his formative years, he lived and travelled with his family along the Western coast of the United States in a salvaged schoolbus that his father had reconfigured. The family later built and settled in a cabin near the treeline of the Angeles National Forest, where Adam lived off the grid without electricity until age 15. At 18, he moved to Los Angeles to attend Otis College of Art and Design, where he received a scholarship for fine art painting. He has remained in Los Angeles since then, balancing his diverse and eclectic artistic endeavors with grand explorations of the world. His travels throughout Southern Africa, Central America, Japan, Southeast Asia, the Caribbean, New Zealand, Polynesia and a 13,000-mile road trip around North America in his Volkswagen Westfalia have all brought great inspiration to his life and work.

Billy Childish

Billy Childish was born in Chatham, Kent, U.K. in 1959. After leaving secondary school at age 16, he worked at the Naval Dockyard in Chatham as an apprentice stonemason. Initially denied an interview to the local art school, he produced hundreds of drawings that gained him entry to St. Martin's School of Art. Childish's defiance of authority led to his eventual expulsion from art school in 1981. Childish then embarked on an artistic odyssey exploring a broad range of worldly themes including war, history, social protest, as well his own experiences of alcoholism, and the abuse he suffered as a child. Over 35 years, Childish has gained a cult status worldwide; writing and publishing over 40 volumes of confessional poetry, 5 novels, recorded over 100 LPs, and painted hundreds of paintings.

Claude Cahun

Claude Cahun (born Lucy Schwob) was born in Nantes, France, in 1894. After studying at Oxford and at the Sorbonne, Cahun moved to Paris where she published essays and short stories in various magazines. From 1914 on, she focused her work on self-portraits in various masks, costumes and make-ups. Throughout her lifetime she fostered confusion about her identity; her pseudonym, Claude, which in French can be applied both to men and women, was symbolic of the provisional nature of her sexual identity. In 1930, Paris publishers Carrefour published her autobiographical work "Aveux non avenus" with photomontages by her and Suzanne Malherbe, alias Marcel Moore. In 1937, she and Suzanne Malherbe became active in the French Resistance and distributed pamphlets, posters and manifestos. In 1944, they were arrested by the Gestapo and sentenced to death. In 1945, they were pardoned but remained in prison until liberation in May 1945. She passed away in 1954.

Leni Riefenstahl

Helene Bertha Amalie “Leni” Riefenstahl was born in 1902 in Berlin. Adolf Hitler put her in charge of filming the 1934 Nazi rally at Nuremberg, as well as the 1936 Olympics in Berlin. The two films, "Triumph of the Will" (1935) and "Olympia" (1938) are landmark documentaries, and Riefenstahl is considered one of the great innovators in moving pictures, though she arguably remains one of the most controversial filmmakers in history. She is the sole woman director on a Time magazine list of the all-time 100 best films. In the 1960's Riefenstahl began voyaging frequently to the African continent, creating her world famous Africa oeuvre of various film and photography projects over the last half century. At the age of 72 she began scuba diving; her 2002 film "Impressions Under Water" was compiled from footage she took while diving. She lived to be 101, dying in 2003.

Richard Pryor

Richard Franklin Lennox Thomas Pryor, born in 1940, was an American stand-up comedian, actor, social critic, writer and MC. Pryor was known for uncompromising examinations of racism and topical contemporary issues, which employed colorful vulgarities, and profanity, as well as racial epithets. He is widely regarded as one of the most important and influential stand-up comedians of all time. Jerry Seinfeld called Pryor "The Picasso of our profession"; Bob Newhart has called Pryor "the seminal comedian of the last 50 years." This legacy can be attributed, in part, to the unusual degree of intimacy Pryor brought to bear on his comedy. As Bill Cosby reportedly once said, "Richard Pryor drew the line between comedy and tragedy as thin as one could possibly paint it." He passed away in 2005.

The Clash

The Clash were an English punk rock band that formed in 1976 as part of the original wave of British punk. For most of their recording career, the Clash consisted of Joe Strummer (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Mick Jones (lead guitar, vocals), Paul Simonon (bass guitar, vocals) and Nicky "Topper" Headon (drums, percussion). Headon left the group in 1982, and internal friction led to Jones's departure the following year. The group continued with new members, but finally disbanded in early 1986. Their debut album “The Clash” was released in 1977 and their third album “London Calling”, released in December 1979, was later declared the best album of the 1980’s by Rolling Stone Magazine. They became widely referred to as "The Only Band That Matters", originally a promotional slogan introduced by the group's record label, CBS. In January 2003, the band—including original drummer Terry Chimes—were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
