Lisa Aurora   lisa@thenaminggallery.com Lisa works with street artists, musicians, makers, and producers. When a project’s culmination is realized and an event is produced or someone’s story is told – there’s a stillness and a love she enjoys above all else – to build a freer world and to curate subtle storylines with eloquence and impact. She utilizes social media and words her grandfather whispered to her. She was destined for something magical and has set out to create other people’s visions as they see better ways to build awareness, self-love, and have fun. Her tools of the trade include apps and analog devices, and a rolodex that is 35 years old.

Imari Hendrix (Cheflee) imari@thenaminggallery.com Born and raised in Oakland CA, Cheflee learned the ways of the audio alchemist from an unknown nomadic mad scientist. Cheflee formed his own style of beat chemistry until the cursed early two thousands television program “Pimp My Ride" attempted to wipe his brain. A survivor of the onslaught, he took to YouTube, and then to record stores to find the perfect sound, to help other audio alchemists around the world defeat the TV. Today, this constant search for the perfect blend of sounds is what keeps Cheflee motivated to create and share ideas. You can find him at the Naming Gallery creating and facilitating O.G. Beat Meets beat making classes, hosting film/projection nights and dishing out fresh hugs to the masses.
