Eric "EMAGN1" Nodora

EMAGN1
“I’m capable of anything; my imagination can give me wings.” -NaS

This favorite quote of artist Eric “Emagn-1” Nodora goes cleverly with his signature character/logo- a classic style light bulb with wings floating across the city skyline.

A talented visual and multi-media artist born on the islands of the Philippines, Nodora moved to Sacramento, California when he was seven years old. He became influenced by Saturday morning cartoons and skateboard graphics. As every little kid growing and alive with imagination, Nodora picked up a pencil and pad. Since then he has never stopped drawing.

Currently, Nodora’s versatile style keeps him busy working on paintings on canvas, on the wall, and as computer graphics and designs. A true artist, he continues to cultivate his ever growing passion. His love for painting especially, has led him to study drawing and fine arts at the Academy of Arts University and finished his Bachelors of Fine Arts Degree at San Francisco State University. With an education from the streets and from the university, Nodora has a uniquely strong background that continues to further his creative style file.

Henry Rasheed Francisco

Henry Rasheed Francisco

In 1989, Henry Rasheed Francisco laced up a pair of OG Air Jordan 4 Black Cement . In 1996, he witnessed the 72-10 Chicago Bulls and Michael Jordan play against the Los Angeles Clippers at the Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena. In 1998, he anticipated to buy A Tribe Called Quest's last album, The Love Movement, and Blackstar's (Mos Def & Talib Kweli) debut album. Later that year, he bought The Source magazine with Tribe's break up on the cover. These were formative years that led Henry to become a sneaker connoisseur, hip hop enthusiast, basketball player, and later a digital media arts teacher and basketball coach.

Henry studied film & cinematography and photography & design at Antelope Valley College in Southern California. He received both his B.A. in Asian American Studies and M.A. in Education: Equity & Social Justice at San Francisco State University. As the former Program Manager of the "I've Known Rivers: The MoAD Stories Project" at the Museum of the African Diaspora (MoAD) in San Francisco, he produced oral history projects in San Francisco and Oakland, and a recipient of the Cal Humanities Community Stories and the James Irvine Foundation.

Utilizing his graphic design, film, and photography background, he currently teaches Digital Media Arts and is the head coach for the boys basketball team at Denman Middle School in the San Francisco Unified School District (SFUSD). He continues to discover inspiration from the essence and grit of 1980s and 1990s culture, which informs his philosophy, artwork and photography.

Currently, he has taken a pilgrimage to the Middle East, and has captured film and photography footage of playground basketball courts in places like the West Bank Palestine, Taba Egypt, Jerusalem and Nazareth. He is currently working on a new project based on his travels throughout the Middle East. Henry will be showcasing his photographs and an art installation along with other artists in San Francisco, CA at SOMArts May 2018 for BETWEENCAPES. Stay focused for the second half of the game.

Will Tinson The Archbishop

The Archbishop

The Origins of Will Tinson The Archbishop center around the concentrated ruination of Compton and South Central Los Angeles during the crack era, circa 1983. From the lessons absorbed through experience, family and Hip Hop, he was able to maneuver through the madness and develop a sense of the True Self through Knowledge Wisdom and Understanding. Inspired by MC’s from KRS, Chuck D, and Big Daddy Kane, through to Pac, The Wu and Nasir, The Archbishop’s sound is rooted in the Realest of The Real, who consider knowledge to be first!

Today as a English/Hip Hop Studies Teacher at your local continuation/alternative high school, his message remains the same, and is in tune with the righteous movements of those who manifest Love above all - “We Rae and Ghost, modern day disciples to approach, for a daily quote, to say William Tinson has given hope/is the reason why I’m here - I’m in my quiet years, amongst violent peers who laugh at gun shots as tires smear...”

He and Prince Rasheed Henry Francisco met in the 8th grade in Palmdale, CA and developed an eternal Brotherhood playing basketball, trading kicks, and listening to the raw unadulterated Hip Hop.
