Meet Our Secret Strokes Artists

Christian Dallas is a contemporary painter and muralist who works in Cincinnati. Upon receiving his BFA in painting from Northern Kentucky University, Christian began to experiment with the large format of mural painting through ArtWorks. Observing the unique scale of each wall and its surroundings, Christian uses the many elements of design and painting technique, to create a unique and thoughtful work of art that intends to complement its urban surroundings.

Lizzy DuQuette has worked with ArtWorks on many projects, as an apprentice, teaching artist, and designer. This summer, Lizzy led a group of apprentices on a shadow puppet project for BLINK.

Matthew Grote is a designer and an artist. His work ranges from furniture, to painted murals. Most recently he contributed artwork to the HUEmanity projection for Blink 2019.

Isabelle Hudson is an emerging artist living in Cincinnati. She recently graduated from Amherst College with a BA in Art and the History of Art, focusing on painting. She combines figurative and abstract elements in large scale, colorful paintings. Inspired by the connections between many fields, including psychology, music and nature, she aims to unify seemingly disparate ideas in her work.

John Lanzador is an educator, designer and artist. He has created murals around Cincinnati, including some for ArtWorks. He has had exhibits in several galleries. He currently has his carved paintings on display at Summit Hotel’s gallery.

Tenzing is a Cincinnati based visual artist, muralist, and designer. He has painted numerous small and large scale public murals locally and nationally, shown fine art pieces in multiple galleries throughout the United States, as well as created custom commissioned artworks, murals, and graphic designs. Tenzing hopes to use his art and creativity to inspire people and share a creative and imaginative vision with the world.
