Massarelli Andrea is an Italian artist who presents a selections of 10” x 15” postcards, the result of years of selection with a constant process of elimintation and removal, arriving at the perfect balance. Despite cleaning, important traces of alteration remain visible in Andrea’s photographic work on paper.

‘I love reading and writing, connecting with people through letters and postcards. The ’10 x 15’ project is a narration, partly an autobiographical summary of daily life. The works encapsulate dreams, desires, considerations and authentic representations. Struck by the humour of a sentence, a comic strip, I let myself be carried away…’. |


Angus Gray Burbridge is a British-born editorial and package design illustrator. For almost all of his career he has lived and worked abroad as freelancer and as in-house illustrator with contributions to Stern Magazin, Freundin, Bertelsmann, Radio Times, the Telegraph Magazine, Readers’ Digest and many others. He headed the illustration portfolio for the complete rebranding of Julius Meinl Austria, if you drink Polish beer, there’s a chance his illustration’s on it and you can see his package design work at airport duty-free stores from Vienna to Moscow. He is currently based in Poland. When not illustrating, he is mostly thinking about illustrating and occasionally surfaces to be amused by the world around him.

The difference between an artist and an illustrator is that with an artist, if you don’t understand something, it’s your fault. With an illustrator, if you don’t understand something, it’s my fault.

Prints are for sale without frames and available through direct contact to the artist.


Anna Ostanina is a photographer from Russia who has learnt and perfected the unique methods of manual hand made photographic printing. Her works are in galleries, museums and private collections in Russia and abroad.

Gumoil or Gumoil printing is the method for producing photos with gum, chromium salts and oil paints. It’s a very expressive photographic method that combines a special author’s point and documentary photography. Through the use of materials for art works – cotton paper and oil paints, archival photos have unique properties that are comparable to paintings on canvas. Handmade Gumoil prints are unique. It is impossible to make an exact copy of your photo, just as it is impossible to paint an identical picture on canvas. | |


Laura Mangone is an Italian artist who graduated from the Design Academy of Eindhoven in the department of Man and Communication. Her drawings explore a variety of themes, ruminating on love, lust and self pleasure.

Sarah Kane said “You get mixed messages because I have mixed feelings.” This is my vision of love, self-love and everything in between. |

Barbara Fregosi is a graphic designer born in Italy currently living and working in Paris. Basic geometries and recurrent shapes participate in the creation of a balanced system. They evolve through symmetry, then details and different levels are added, switching from simplicity to complexity.

‘I’m currently using paper for its texture and the way the light interact with it. The flatness of the paper and the superposition create the illusion of bi-dimensional illustrations.

These nine artworks can be considered independently or as a unity.

From far to close, simple to complex, same to different, the shadows reveal the different compositions of each piece’. |

Henrique EDMX Montanari was born in Sao Paulo, Brazil, in 1977. He has a Masters Degree in Fine Arts (University of Sao Paulo) and has been working with design since 1996. In 2002 he moved to Toronto, where in 2003 he earned a Post Graduation in 3d Digital Animation at Seneca College. His works have been published and shown in many galleries and streets around the world.

‘I use different media in my artistic work as painting, graffiti, collage and 3d, with the objective of passing a positive message about life and questioning contemporary social and cultural moments. Born in São Paulo, I learned to see the beautiful in the midst of chaos, making street art and underground culture ever present’. | |


Ina Mazzei was born in Utah, USA, but grew up in Venezuela. Ina has worked as an illustrator and Graphic Designer and has worked extensively in Venezuela and Brazil.

‘I’ve been always in love with colors and how they are perfectly matched in nature so I’m always looking for the perfect palette. Every piece of my art is drawn and painted by hand giving attention to every detail. I like natural strokes and sometimes I mix them with structure shapes. Nature and childhood inspires my work.

Watercolor is my favorite medium, which I think is very flexible to work with. I love it because you can blend the colors and create the most beautiful shades’. |


Rizza is a Brazilian artist exhibiting a selection of works on paper.

‘Dimensions may be seen either through a real or an abstract prism and their distinction lies in the nature of the perceptual experience of an individual mind. The series D.mension, a work presented by Rizza, is a proposal for how those manifold dimensions might be fruitfully perceived in coexistence in the universe. Through the process of image duplication of he same subject, the work addresses the underlying aspects of expansion and unity, and broadens our scope of consideration as to our role as co- creators of an existence of infinite possibilities. Though unique, we are also part of a whole, and we all carry within us a universe created by perceptions, thoughts and sentiments generated by our self. |
