The Soho Renaissance Factory is an artist collective dedicated to revitalizing and rebuilding New York City. Co-founders Konstance Patton and Trevor Croop (aka Light Noise) met at the beginning of the COVID-19 lockdown, painting next to each other on the wood covering store windows in Soho.
Most of Patton’s work revolves around her Goddess Project- “a series of portraits of powerful, imaginative Black women that embodies themes of adornment, attitude and style.” Croop uses glass paint that illuminates under light. Manny Pulla is a visual artist with prolific pieces across the city. Amir Diop is developing his own style called neo-savageism. Brendan T. McNally does contemporary portraiture, blending realism and abstract art. Keiji Drysdale is a multi-hyphenate artist who blends technology and immersive media. Sule’s work is demonstrative, on different mediums from plywood to skate decks. You can check out their work at sohorenaissancefactory.com.
