✘ Drew Merritt: is native of New Mexico. In his work, the artist transposes classical art into contemporary art. His characters are traditionally beautiful and often contrast the white canvas which creates a theatrical effect.
✘ Kurar: is the pseudonym of a French street artist. In his works he addresses social problems such as post-urbanisation, climatic change, terrorism, etc., with poetry and dark humour.
✘ Aaron Li-Hill: is a Canadian artist specialised in movement. His unique style enables him to create figurative scenes which gives them a sweeping sense of energy.
✘ Vera Kochubey: is a Russian Artist based In Berlin. After graduating, she chose to work on the representation of spirituality in art. Her works mix interrogative statement and the concept of sexuality through ambiguous characters.
