Eloy My name is Eloy, I started with a camera five years ago, I'm twenty-three years old, my stage for photography is Madrid, where I currently live. It is a city with a lot of movement and many people. There are times when that can turn against you, a lot of stress, too many people, but other times it gives you a wide repertoire of situations and stories that you can capture. Being honest, many times you go out looking for the photo, but you don't always get what you want.

Mike Edwards Mike Edwards is an established artist based in Brighton UK. He is well known for his portraits made of text - such as the commissioned typographic portrait of Lord Attenborough, now on permanent public display at the Attenborough Centre for Creative Arts in Brighton - or the portrait of Nadya from Pussy Riot created from the text of a William Wordsworth poem. The new Black Fireworks body of work is a break out from Edwards recognised style and signals a new direction towards a more sophisticated approach to painting.

Julie Ahmad Julie attributes her life as an artist to her daughter. When she was pregnant, she often felt this strong burning desire to be creative and work with her hands. There was some kind of organic correlation between her body being in the state of creation and her heart urging her hands to do the same. She was most drawn to the looseness and forgiving qualities of abstract art. There were no rules here - you could make them up as you went along, and she wanted more of that. She paints in an intuitive style, not always having the final outcome in mind from the start.

Victor Fitz My recent abstract compositions are inspired partially by my casual and pedestrian fascination with theoretical physics. Quantum Field Theory, String Theory, and the Everettian "many worlds" interpretation of quantum mechanics influence these efforts (just please do not ask me to do the math). They are also attempts to create objects that allow the viewer to explore the physiological sensation of vision.

Veronika Aron Veronika Aron, artist, painter from Vladivostok, Russia. "I work with oil paints. It’s a tool that helps me truly express myself and makes my ideas come true on a canvas. I love painting portraits, painting people because I’m attracted to their beauty and individuality. I express myself, my feelings through my paintings, and I touch on matters that are important to me."

Vanessa Teodoro I'm a South African-Portuguese visual artist based in Lisbon. I find that my academic and professional background in graphic design and advertising have an important part in the creation of my visual identity. My style is defined by a complex battle between graphic patterns, fig urative elements and strong contrasting colours, all with a touch of chaos and humor. Having dedicated myself exclusively to illustration and fine art for the last 10 years, I have since worked with numerous renowned international brands.I take a special liking to street art projects and find the challenge of painting large public murals very rewarding.

I loved horror and sci-fi movies and I became interested in making things that only existed in my mind. I enjoyed escapism.

Derek Friday I am an Environmental Graphic Designer, based in Boulder where my practice includes identity development, immersive branding, large format patterning, signage and way-finding systems and original art. I have worked with a number of major architectural and development firms on large retail and mixed-use projects across Europe and the U.S. for the past 15 years, ten of those as lead creative for my own small agency, Finndustry. The applications of my work can be varied depending on the specific need for creating brand continuity across an environment. I have entered at the visioning and concept phase as a consultant for bigger picture discussions, collaborated with design teams on an ongoing basis as a multidisciplinary designer throughout a project, and created comprehensive concept packages and monitored each component through fabrication. On occasion, I have jumped in towards the end of a project when the need for wayfinding and other brand integration has arisen unexpectedly. I was recently awarded the 2018 SEGD Global Design Award in the category of Identity and Placemaking for the Sagamore Pendry Hotel in Baltimore Maryland. Other projects of note include Sagamore Spirts, Baltimore, Pearl West, Boulder, 360 Mall, Kuwait, The Boulevard at Downtown Dubai, The Roosevelt Collection, Chicago, Alexa, Berlin, Designopolis in Cairo among many others.

Mackenzie Nicole Strange Main the pop music division of Strange Music to release Mackenzie Nicole’s Mystic on February 14, accompanied by a no-holds-barred video series. While Mystic perfectly combines sultry sounds with pop sensibilities, it also opens a conversation to further break the mental health stigma. “Fun” is the third song and accompanying video that continues the journey of Mystic. Layered with effervescent sounds and brooding swirling atmosphere an ethereal melody drips off Mackenzie’s honey-coated, yet haunting vocals. The track weaves with steady tension and raw moments as she lyrically slices through the darkness.

Andrew Hetherington Andrew Hetherington is an Australian indie musician, songwriter and producer. One of life’s polymaths, Hetherington straddles these roles with confidence bringing a fierce originality yet still classic sound, forged by the music he grew up with. 80s retro-wave, laced with smooth synths, mellow guitars and achingly beautiful vocals meet the harmony and rhythms of classic pop. It’s addictive, something both new and familiar at the same time.
