Olaf Breuning is a multi-disciplinary contemporary artist, originally from Switzerland and currently living and working in NYC.

His drawings, made with pencil, paper and a sense of humour, reveal and delight in the absurdity of life.
Portuguese illustrator and artist Rita Gomes, A.K.A. Wasted Rita, scrawls and almost scratches her drawings and text works onto the page. Her black and white images are dripping with sarcasm and challenge you with their explicit content and strong emotion. Restless and easily bored, she has a thirst for new people and places, hurling herself into new experiences that inspire her in creating her work.
Sitting among fallen oranges, Rubén Martín Hernández has a quick, mischievous grin and sparkles with enthusiasm and energy. Rubén pours that energy into Dodo Magazine, his self-published adventure, science and fantasy magazine for anyone with an inquisitive mind and joyful sense of discovery.
Arthur Carvalho is a Brazilian freelance animator and illustrator, based in São Paulo, who creates hand-drawn, collage and digital animation and illustration for businesses and bands. Inspired by the world of skateboarding and rock and roll, as a teenager Arthur found an avenue for his love of drawing, creating fanzines and t-shirts for local skate shops. Now years later, his sketchbooks are filled with bizarre creatures, geometric patterns, skateboard adventures and blocky text, which he brings into his animation videos.
