NEW CHAPTER: The final Liferlife collection
Staff Writer By: Andrés Bustamante
'New Chapter' is an exhilarating collaborative exhibit curated by Nashville-based artist Andrés Bustamante.
It will showcase his final collection of contemporary street fashion under the alias of 'Liferlife'.
Featured will be new mixed media works that will complement one another, creating a space of visual stimulation.
Through symbolism, a 'New Chapter' in life unfolds; a rebirth of creative experimentation, spirituality, and mindset. The group show involves four creative forces uniting to celebrate the lifestyle of a brand. The gallery will be adorned by paintings, installations, a live model, and photography. This collaborative work includes pieces by photographer Zachary Gray, abstract impressionist Eric 'Mobe' Bass, and an installation by Hans Lambert.
The very essence of Liferlife is present within the space; street art influences, creativity, collaboration, experimentation, and the celebration of life.

Eric "Mobe" Bass is an artist born and raised in Nashville, TN, currently residing in Ormond Beach, FL.
A self-taught artist, his work resembles his background in street art and mural work combined with a mix of beautiful abstract impressionist portraiture. He describes his work and techniques as "intense and powerful, at the same time meticulous and systematic. The work merges sinister or nefarious ideas and lovable, light-hearted conviction." mobewashere.com @too_nasty_86
Hans Lambert is a Nashville-based artist born and raised in South Carolina.
Inspired by skulls, style, and spirits; His creativity invokes the eerie with the contemporary.
Lambert and Bustamante will collaborate on an installation in the center of the gallery that will become the common thread; utilizing icons and symbols to portray a rebirth of creative experimentation. cargocollective.com/hanslambert @skullhungry
