Mike Stasny is an installation artist, performance artist, and sculptor from the midwest currently working out of Atlanta. He primarily works with raw building materials and broken furniture converting them into “creatures” inspired by natural history museums, sci-fi, and his grandfather - an eccentric taxidermist whom let Mike play in his basement with numerous dead things. His most notorious work to date is “what what in the butt” - a youtube viral video that conflates homosexuality, blackness, and religion into an absurd / escapist cartoon like universe. On occasion, he provides “MUSIC YOU NEED” for art related events.
James Cramer moved to Atlanta from LA 2 years ago and has been learning about the craft of bartending ever since. With no bartending experience whatsoever upon arrival to Atlanta, James began working at Biltong Bar in Ponce City Market. Very quickly James began to learn about the craft of making cocktails and is now the Head Bartender and is responsible for making signature cocktails for the menu.
