I had the opportunity to meet with one of  Atlanta’s influential collective of artists;  Chinese Foode. Emphasis on the E  because “Everybody Eats”! This collective of artist is a unique combination of innovative creatives making their way through the art industry with individual styles that compliment their vision and purpose as a unit. They are powerhouses as individuals possessing an array of skills that include but are not limited to emotion invoking photography, culinary artistry, visual art, markers only commissions, 3d toy printing and more.

 Seeing how they were making strides as individual creatives navigating their own lanes, they collectively agreed to pool their skills and expertise to create a movement that would take the art scene in Atlanta by storm.  They became a curating innovative force as a collective; Using what they had to get what they wanted. Humble beginnings put these creatives in a position to do wonderful things with their vision and purpose.most rewarding part of the experience I got to share with the collective is the love, respect and admiration they share for one another. To be inspired by the very people you are building and growing with is absolutely amazing.  These individuals are mastering their crafts and arn’t selfish in sharing what it takes for them to leave a lasting legacy through their art and purpose.
