Valeria Real
Photographer – Madrid

Valeria Real is a young and audiovisual artist from Patagonia, Argentina, who combines her passion for photography and innovation, generating spaces where her concept expands and comes alive, giving an opportunity for people to interact with her work beyond the visual. She puts a spotlight on the emotion and sensation transmitted by the captured images, mixing her interpretation with those who experience her photographic and artistic works.


Anton Strandgren
Painter – Upsala

Anton is a self taught artist working primarily with acrylics and charcoal. He usually creates what he calls “emotional memories”, that is, paintings representing feelings from the past. He sees his work as a visual journal and doesnt mind what many call “negative” emotions, instead he tries to portray those scary, unmanageable and painful feelings to be able to accept them as a part of life.


CMO Photo.
Photographer – Amsterdam

In 1995 Christian got in touch with photography. He did a 12-month internship at a renowned photography model agency in Berlin working with Ali Kepenek. Christian offers photography shootings for fashion brands and events. His own work covers landscape and portrait.


Simon Findlay.
Painter – Berlin

Simon Findlay blends performance and painting by using a broom to create powerful strokes on large canvas. His artistic process is linked with his physical/mental health, which is supported by consistently painting a large work every month.

Mixed Media – Berlin

The artist has taken these self portraits to search for the woman inside, the women reflected in the mirror.
 Art is a healing remedy for the heart and soul. She hopes you reflect on the other side of her mirror, then Vava art has a meaning above the esthetics.

Alena Kononova
Painter – USA

I see a lot of beautiful things around me and I want to learn how can I capture all of it by hands. I get inspired by many talented artists and mostly by their lives. Strong interest by art I started to notice about 4 years ago since then I draw little by little. Little by little only because I’m afraid to make mistakes thats why I draw not that often. I tend to idealize everything and this is my main block. As the time goes by I get to know myself and the world around me better. My addiction by color grows faster and faster and I love to be in paint more often. Mixing those colors and dive inside them becomes my passion.

cool good eh love2 cute confused notgood numb disgusting fail
