**Ceno2 from Singapore:
Ceno2’s desire is to share his art with people, to uplift communities and to have his art allow someone to feel better about their day. This desire led him to start Artkhalytis, a creative arts company that serves as a platform to use graffiti for commercial and private projects,
which kept him on the right side of the law. Commercial projects allowed Ceno2 to discover “Graffiti Fine Art,” which is the use of spray paint as a medium with the technical skills of western fine art to create paintings based off of artistic movements such as realism, surrealism, and cubism; instead of the usual street “tagging.” http://www.ceno2.com/about-ceno2/http://www.ceno2.com/about-ceno2/

~Que4 Radio~
Our name depicts the true essence of our calling. Quennect 4 is a pathway for organizations, artists, and the independent community to connect with each other and with resources. When we say ‘Quennect 4’ we mean connect the music with art, the politics with people, and the freethinkers with a social setting. Our Spanish prefix “Que” means “what” as in we will connect the people with whatever they need. We will quennect 4 society, quennect 4 the people, and quennect 4 the voices that are silenced by mainstream outlets.
