KuKula comes from a small town in Israel. All her neighbours were retirees who had both patience and lots of free time, so as a child KuKula found herself playing with dolls and old people. Her imagination therefore constructed itself of equal parts princess fantasies and World War II horror stories. One of the most important things KuKula learned was that “childhood is a permanent state of being—people grow older, but they never fully mature.” In other words, everyone still struggles with their earliest memories, and even the memories passed down from others.

Ryan Myers (New York, USA)
Ryan Myers was born in 1978 in the suburbs of Long Island, New York. Trained at Hartford Art School and weaned in New York City, his playful, sombre paintings grew out of an obsession with Pee Wee Herman and the bad children from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. His works reflect an interruptive view into a sullen, mannequinesque world where sadness is masked in pinks, greens and blues. He currently lives and paints with his wife, dog and a spiteful lovebird.

Zoe Lacchei (Rome)
Zoe Lacchei grew up in a small town near Rome. Being isolated has given her a great abstraction and escapism ability, two characteristics that form the basis of her work as an adult. After high school, she focused on the subjects she loved the most, such as human anatomy and Japanese culture. This last one has affected her enormously: she simply adores Japan, with its contradictions and oddities, with its great sense for the art of image, in a traditional and at the same time modern way, given by Manga, Anime and videogames.

Lost Fish (France)
Lost Fish was born in the south of France in 1983. She started her illustration works as a freelance designer in 2007 by making digital paintings with her computer. Her sweet and often macabre Character designs marked the beginning of creating her own unique style and as a result she quickly started to receive international attention and show her work in art exhibitions throughout Europe and America.

Tiffany Liu (Taipei)
Tiffany Liu was born in Taipei, Taiwan in 1981. She studied at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, CA. and graduated in 2005 with a BF. She has crafted a compelling and absorbing visual world playful and sometimes macabre phantasmagoria filtered through the eyes of an adult artist who demonstrates that her adoption of a "childlike" point-of-view is never a "childish" one. Her canvas is her playground; awash in rainbow hues and populated with a veritable circus of cute (and freaky) creatures, her candy-coloured acrylic paintings are at once strangely familiar.

Working as a freelance illustrator, he has provided artwork for book covers, collectable card games, comic covers, album covers, film posters, magazine covers and much more.

Tadaomi Shibuya (Japan)
Tadaomi Shibuya reconstructs various motifs such as the human face, animals and industrial products with unique surfaces. Firstly it gives the viewer a sharp and flat impression only to reveal more: a deep texture with brush marks in an uneven painted field. Shibuya’s parents run a sign making business and he grew up with many craftsmen. Shibuya majored in product design at art college, but he was looking for creative connections between 2-D expression and music through his interest in Hip-Hop.

D’Holbachie Yoko (Japan)
D’Holbachie Yoko’s seemingly endless supply of images portrays animals, insects, fish and toys, taking form on canvas or as digitally rendered creations. Despite their initially grotesque appearance, her works bestow a feminine charm that is mysterious and gentle. The subjects of these works is very much open to the audience, with D’Holbachie claiming that their form simply exists as something within her prior to her physical intervention, and that they simply manifest themselves, through her, as paintings.

Mike Bilz (California, USA)
Growing up, Mike Bilz was the nerdiest punk rocker in San Diego and ventured out to Los Angeles to attend Otis College of Art and Design. In 2006 he graduated from Otis College with a Bachelors in Illustration. Mike Bilz's work walks the fine line between adorable and disturbing, giving life to the odd little thoughts that permeate his imagination by creating eccentric characters that are both endearing and upsetting. Most often his characters are pulled right from the pages of his sketchbook, happy accidents born of boredom and carried on by a wandering stream of consciousness.
Luke Kopycinski (Australia)
Luke Kopycinski is an Australian born artist currently working and living in Melbourne, Australia. His work is intriguing, dark and has an underlying current of something very human. Best described as Dark Noir, his subject matter is of the beautiful and the melancholy, aspects of the people around him, both what they project on the outside and what they keep inside. His oils are a mix of realism and impressionism, a mixture of strong soft shining lights and heavy sharp shadows that centre the focus of the pieces. His graphite works have been described as painting themselves, illusionary in depth and form with imagery like deceptively frozen moments.
