Knutzen's Surrealist Landscapes Return to BalMar for December Artwalk

Paul Knutzen is a local artist who currently lives in the Beacon Hill neighborhood of South Seattle. Paul attributes his interest in art to his father, a painter himself, who exposed Paul to a wide range of art as a child. He graduated from Seattle Central Community College with a degree in graphic art and soon found a home in the video game industry, where he spent over a decade creating 3D environments.

Much of Paul’s artwork reflects his strong affection for architecture and the organic elements found in man-made structures. He enjoys experimenting with different mediums and surfaces in order to create subtle and unpredictable textures in his artwork. When he is not working in his garage studio, Paul can often be found wandering the city streets with a camera looking for inspiration in unusual buildings, trains, colorful signage, or local street art.

Chicago native and NOW a Seattle resident, Super DJ Johnny  Price, aka Battle/ Turntablist DJ "J.P. GUNNz" is definitely a "master" in the game of making you dance. For over 20 years as a high-level, party-rocking DJ, Johnny has filled the dance floors of various music festivals, fraternity and sorority parties and nightclubs not only in Seattle, but in Chicago and surrounding areas and in other parts of the world as well, leaving the same, successful results. He is a 2013 Pacific NW DMC Vice Champion scratch DJ, a 2009 West Coast Hip-Hop Awards Turntablist DJ Battle Champion, A 2008 DMC U.S.A. National Finalist (check out the video: ), A 2007 Skribble-Jam National Finalist, a 2007 Hott Mixx Chicago Turntablist DJ Battle Champion. He is also a 2006 DMC N.W.

He also rocked the dance floors and had resident DJ positions in various nightclubs in Hong Kong, Singapore, and Japan. Johnny is pushing his top-notch cutting, scratching, and trick-mixing skills to the highest level as he combines his varsity-level party-rocking skills with the precision, timing, and creativity of a high-level battle-mix-master turntablist dj on the ones and twos. Johnny's funky, unique, and technical "Busy Skillz Style" make him, on the same level, as much fun to watch as to listen to. If you're not dancing, just chill back and watch him spin and have your mind blown. Don't blink, he's incredibly, rhythmically fast with his hands and body. His mixing style and cuttin' and scratchin' are all razor-sharp and great to listen to. If you like cutting-edge dance music (House and Hip-Hop) with cutting-edge, varsity dj skills & energy to match then come & check out DJ Johnny Price AKA DJ J.P. GUNNz.  Here's an idea on how Johnny gets down live: Come say, "Hi" & have your mind blown by the many forms of House music he spins.
