Altpick Features Scott Lowden, Owen Brozman, Umberto Grati and Craig LaRotonda

This week’s Altpick Member Focus Round-Up includes Photographer Scott Lowden and Illustrators Owen Brozman, Umberto Grati and Craig LaRotonda.  To see more of their work please visit Altpick.com.

©Scott Lowden

Scott Lowden is a compulsive photographer who carries his camera everywhere. An avid team player, he consults both sides of his brain to bring concepts to life. An award winning photographer with over 20 years of experience, he’s been shooting for some of the biggest brands including Kodak, Coca-Cola, Delta, and AFLAC, just to name a few. He spent the first part of his career specializing in still life, a few years directing for TV and creating some festival worthy short films, and has been concentrating on lifestyle photography for the past 10 years or so. Shooting worldwide, he currently calls Atlanta home with his wife and Sophie the dog.

©Owen Brozman

Owen Brozman is an illustrator based in Brooklyn, NY.  His recent work includes the New York Times best seller You Have to Fucking Eat, the sequel to the best-selling classic Go The Fuck To Sleep. Written by Adam Mansbach, You Have to Fucking Eat is in stores now. A children’s version is also available.  Kindness & Salt, an illustrated cookbook by Doug Crowell and Ryan Angulo, the owners of Brooklyn’s Buttermilk Channel and French Louie, will be published this winter.  His work has been recognized by 3×3 Magazine, The Society of Illustrators of Los Angeles, Creative Quarterly Journal, and CMYK Magazine. He received an MFA from the School of Visual Arts, Illustration as Visual Essay program.

©Umberto Grati

Umberto Grati was born and raised in Ancona on the east coast of Italy, he graduated from the Fine Arts and Restoration Institute in Florence, Italy. Umberto is a versatile painter and illustrator, he  enjoys collaborating with art directors on editorial projects for weekly, monthly and daily magazines. His media includes oil, acrylic, and watercolor paint, tempera, and mixed-media. Umberto’s different styles can always find solutions for every type of assignment. He works quickly and always meet the deadlines.

©Craig LaRotonda

Craig LaRotonda’s richly layered paintings are provocative; his signature iconic-style is reminiscent of Renaissance and Byzantine art while remaining boldly contemporary. His work possesses a dark narrative and grotesque elegance.  These distorted creatures are captured in a timeless space — surviving the brutality and beauty of existence. Craig’s ability to make deformities and oddities become aesthetically magnificent is what makes his art so unique.  LaRotonda’s artwork has been featured in Time Magazine, The Washington Post, Juxtapoz, The New York Times and numerous other publications.  Through his relationship with Film Art LA, his acclaimed art also appears prominently in television and 5 feature-length motion pictures including “Traffic” and “The Other Guys”.
