Antonella Baldacci – Antonella’s work revolves around nature and the human condition. A trained artist from Tuscany, Antonella uses colour and movement as the protagonist of her artistic story. She has a magical and surrealist quality to her work, expanding the concept of dreams as untouchable and a place of refuge. Transposing the internal journey into art, she immerses herself in alternations of poetry and abstraction.


Emily Ma – Emily is a 15-year-old artist from the Netherlands. Despite her young age, she has begun to take her artistic career more seriously by attending art and drawing classes and accumulating a substantial following online. Emily has yet to define her own style but has a preference for rich, bright colours to depict natural and floral motifs.


Haser – Haser’s work reflects a lifetime of exploring the limits and boundaries of the alphabet in the context of graffiti. Although his work is heavily influenced by the history of graffiti he believes he is paving his own path as he heads away from the traditional forms of graffiti as well as the alphabet.

“Love Lost” and “Love Found” derive from a series of works that were a direct response to the tragic Christchurch terror attacks that took place in Haser’s home country of New Zealand on March 15 2019.


Maurizio Fioretti – Maurizio is a professional painter, musician, composer and author from Italy.

“Through the act of painting, I am interested in seeking beauty, searching for truth and authenticity of being deeply human, up to the unconscious forms that are expressed through the vitality of colours and the emergence of lines. My movement on the canvas merges with the rhythm, composition, harmonic layers, silences (pauses), improvisation, that belong to me and that characterize my identity as a musician. Through painting I am passionately searching for a fusion between the physical and psychic world, between the movement of the body and deep internal images.”


Lili da Silva – Lili, a German Psychology graduate, began to exhibit her works in 2002. She uses mainly oil, acrylic, pastels and aquarelle on canvas.


Mikio Urasaki – Mikio transposes overwhelming feelings he encounters when visiting different landscapes. He has discussed a duality between harsh landscapes that attract visitors to its own danger. Mikio presents these scenes to us through painting, the focus of the works is not the place, which he blurs, it is the colourful foreground in which he attempts to objectify his own emotions. There is a dichotomy between the two elements and the theory itself, allowing us to question – can we experience an emotion or a place without feeling it or seeing it?


Halcyon Jarrett – “I’ve been inspired by almost every art movement you could name at one point or another, and over time a concentrated, distilled set of ideals have solidified in my mind. The final elements I adhere to in my work are twofold – a visual reaction caused by a pleasing or vivid composition, and an interaction or story of sorts between either individuals or forms, usually carrying a clear strong emotion to the viewer straight away. When I do it right, it feels like I catch an emotion and keep it trapped in the paint pigment or charcoal dust, creating a permanent talisman.”

Halcyon’s work has been featured in the Netflix series “Nightflyers”


Salman Alhajri – Salman is an artist, graphic designer and professor from Oman. He presents his own artistic style, his experiences and his philosophy with a contemporary vision that is distinguished by his creativity, his sense of colour harmony and the simplicity and attractiveness of his compositions. In his artworks, Salman displays a great sensitivity to colours and light in his scenes of Omani villages, sceneries, landscapes, and people. His artworks are also distinguished by the diversity of artistic practices, including abstraction, expression, contemporary Arabic calligraphy and the design of publications. His drawings and paintings represent the Omani culture, its inhabitants and its heritage in all its forms.


Sophie Baker – Sophie’s pieces represent the damage human kind has inflicted on nature. Her paintings depict wildlife amongst chaotic splashes of colour. Her work combines her compassion for the planet with her own background. After growing up in Bristol and Devon she has combined the bold colours and technique of urban graffiti with unusual or exotic animals.
