Ranjiroo II am Ranjiroo. I am an Atlanta-based artist, originally from California's Bay Area. My brain is a hodgepodge of 80's pop, retro television shows, and 90's R&B references. My art is a hodgepodge as well. Because mind is not set in one specific area, my art does not come from one specific place. My work is based on my mood. I have about 5 different styles and areas of focus. I'm proud of each of them.

Kasia Matejczuk Kasia Matejczuk is a Polish photographer based in Poland. Her work is most recognized as a black-andwhite portrait and fashion photographs. Already as a child, Kasia was very captivated in the art of painting. She painted mostly portraits and their abstract versions. She sought inspiration mainly in books about art and fashion magazines. At the age of 14, she discovered the world of photography and masterworks of the greatest photographers. A huge impact on her photography had a fascination with black-and-white films, in which the elegance and simpleness in further years were very related to her black-and-white photographs. In 1998 Matejczuk moved to Berlin. She took a few years of lessons and practice in a photo studio involved in the fashion scene. In 2011, Kasia Matejczuk established in Berlin an atelier, where she worked on individual fashion projects. Some of them were published and exhibited in several fashion magazines and galleries. Today, Kasia Matejczuk works as a freelance photographer, with a focus on portrait and fashion photography. She says: I love art in it's every form. Creativity is an expression of our thoughts and feelings. My greatest inspirations are people and life in itself. I discover the unknown and confront the "new" that's the way to grow.

Michiel Folkers I am Michiel Folkers. Calling my self a contemporary artist. Living on the countryside next to Amsterdam, working in my studio in the centre of Amsterdam where I find my medium on the street. In most cases old street posters collected form the walls. Finding the right color can be difficult, but always satisfying when I develop new combinations out of nowhere. My professional career started 6 years ago. When I saw work form Raymond Hains. I went on the streets right away and pulled posters like a maniac and made 4 portraits of Carla Bruni. When I sold all the pieces that same day and got a personal reaction of Carla herself, I knew I did something good. Before my professional career in art I was working as an allround creative at advertisement agencies. Before that I was doing graffiti on the streets. All the experiences from the past can be seen in my art today. My motivation in life is only doing things that I want to do. Making art takes the biggest part of that.

DB WATERMAN I assemble original photography, assorted papers, acrylics, oil, charcoal, ink, and pencil in my works. The variety of resources I am able to use has proved indispensable to me. The biggest challenge the collage medium posed was its unforgiving lack of transparency. Finding a way to replicate the effects of transparency afforded by paint, especially watercolors, was a large victory for me. The preparing labor shows through in my collages; layer upon layer of material remains visible in the finished pieces. I believe my body of work is characterized by my skill for reinvention.

Jack Bloom Jack Bloom is hard to nail down. His style is chameleonic, moving effortlessly from modern polish to retro cartoon to whimsical satire, to name just a few examples. Yet his work all features a common thread of, not exactly minimalism, but a sort of clean elegance. Everything seems deliberate, layers of meaning working beneath other layers that merge together in the pursuit of greater significance.

Jolanta Johnsson I graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw, where I specialized in graphics. I have since then worked as a freelancing artist, and painting and drawing are the techniques that dominate in my work. I create figurative compositions and landscapes. I interpret the strong emotions that my surroundings, and especially nature, evoke. My compositions sometimes preserve observed orders and divisions, often, however, the painting leads me into more abstract grounds. In my work on landscapes the need to simplify and summarize dominates, but at the same time I work with different textures to create a living image.
