~Brandon Paul (B-Paul), Painting live~ Brandon Paul’s art is an eclectic mix of pop culture
and surrealism, with heavy influence from street art, tattooing, skateboarding, and urban culture.
His paintings resemble a mass of organic matter, that somehow engulfed a piece of graffiti,
and a hip hop concert then toss in some pretty ladies, sea life, birds, and what your left
with is a beautiful piece of controlled chaos wearing nikes .

~Tribe of the Red Moon ~ Actor, singer, dancer, choreographer, director, and circustician; Lucky Bruno,
Tribe of the Red Moon, has been part of Moksha Family for the past 8 years performing eccentric, innovative,
and other worldly performances. During his performances he aims to create a sense of global circus hysteria,
with the extreme hope of touching and captivating his audiences with joy and inspiration.

Seattle, Wa. She has traveled the world spreading light through creativity for a wide range of artists &
