Bios

ColorATL

ColorATL, Atlanta’s adult coloring book, combines the power of creative activity with the thriving art culture of Atlanta to benefit those in difficult circumstances. Not only does ColorATL offer a deeper, more interactive look into Atlanta’s artists, but they believe creative activity has the ability to decrease stress, anxiety, and despair - and cultivate peace, joy, and hope. ColorATL strives to unify our city through creativity by workshops, events, and through our 1:1 model - for every book sold, one is given to a person facing hardship at local partnering organizations. William Massey, Amber Guinn, and Connor Dwyer began organizing this project in Spring of 2016 and released ColorATL Volume 1 in October.

Manty Dey

Manty Dey is a visual artist working in Atlanta, Georgia. She received a BFA in painting and drawing from Georgia State University and an MFA from the University of Georgia. Dey’s work has been exhibited at MOCA GA, Georgia Museum of Art, Macon Museum of Arts and Sciences, and Lyndon House Art Center. She has been awarded residencies at Vermont Studio Center and The Hambidge Center for Creative Arts and Sciences. She creates sculptural paintings by altering the surface through cutting, draping, and mending.

Llucy Llong

Llucy Llong is a visual anthropologist living and working between Charlotte, NC and her hometown of Atlanta, GA. Through collage, animation, and textiles, she explores the Spirit, culture, and tradition of original descendants of the African diaspora. Llucy’s current work focuses on an initiative called Ascend Together In Power, which is a nostalgic approach to the restoration of Black American families through the lens of lineage reflection, introspection, and future building. Her work has been exhibited at Pratt Institute, the University of Illinois at Chicago, and the North Carolina Museum of Art.

Cole Tanner

An Atlanta native, Cole has always strived to be a true individual. Growing up in holistic, all-natural environments he learned early on the importance of sustainability & thinking outside the box. Sinking his teeth into the hospitality industry enabled him to experiment with different approaches to culinary crafting, eventually finding that where he shined the most was in engaging with new people & sharing his passion for culinary creativity.
