When you walk into the intimate space of Art Fiend Foundation And observe the scene, you start to believe in their motto, “anything is possible”. Operated by four partners, Carol Gimbel (musician + music Teacher), Johanna Hofring (Designer), Ron Jean Gilles (Accessories designer), and Wen Chi Chung (Graphic designer) They’ve created a haven to support the designers + artists of The lower east side community. What you can expect to find are special hand made items such as Ron’s geometrical Brass cut out leather belts, delicate crochet Jewelery by Johanna, leather embroidered asymmetrical leather Cuffs by Valentine, even items made by Sami people who live with the reindeers in the mountains of Northern Scandinavia. Carol might even play her viola and Johanna play her accordion while you browse. Also anyone who comes by is welcome to play the drums. Check out the pieces made by the following artists/designers listed from Convention now carried at AFF.
