Tran Trong Vu is a Vietnamese Artist born in 1964, in Hanoi. He is the youngest son of the poet Trần Dần. He graduated at the Hanoi School of Fine Arts and won a scholarship at the Ecole Nationale des Beaux-Arts in Paris. He now lives and works in Paris. His work beyond aesthetics reflects the obsession of a past that continues, the political and human derision. He paints on large transparent plastic sheets, then installs them in the workspace to create works in 3D. The modes of presentation themselves maintain an ambiguous relationship with the viewers: his installations composed of forests of plastic covers hanging from the ceiling, invite the spectator to get lost amidst painted silhouettes, in the anxiety inducing world of the artist. His achievements raise a public participation, complicity or at least an acceptance to enter the work. Visitors should seek their path in the transparency between images, figures, colors, and behave as if they were on a stage. His work is played on visual and psychological effects caused by its virtual maze of the image... Like the attractions at an amusement park: visitors go for fun and they find fear. He has had solo and collective exhibitions at the ASU Art Museum (Arizona), the Singapore Art Museum (Singapore), the Youth Art Palace (Tashkent), Espace Ecureuil, The Foundation for Contemporary Art (Toulouse), Künstlerhäuser (Worpswede), Casula Powerhouse (Sydney), Stenersen Museum (Oslo), Stiftelsen 314, International Contemporary Art Foundation (Bergen), Exhibition Center of Baie-Saint-Paul (Quebec), Galerie Mirchadani & Steinruecke (Bombay), Islip Art Museum (New York), Museum für Lackkunst (Münster), Espace Paul Ricard (Paris), Haus der Kulturen der Welt (Berlin), the Modern Art Museum of Paris (Paris), Plum Blossoms Gallery (New York), Tobin Ohashi Gallery (Tokyo), Tropen Museim (Amsterdam), Watertoren (Vlissingen). His works are in the collection of the Singapore Art Museum, the Vietnam Museum of Fine Arts and the ASU Art Museum. He was awarded the first price at the Austria Biennial 2006 and the prestigious Pollock-Krasner Grant in New York for the season 2011-2012.

Mahmud Rustamov was born in 1967, in Azerbaijan, Baku. He is a graduate of the Faculty of Sculpture of the Azimzade Azerbaijan State Academy (1986), of the State University of the Arts (1992) and of the Creative Workshops at the USSR Arts Academy headed by Omar Eldarov (1998). In 2000, Mahmud Rustamov became a holder of the “Sculptor of the Year” prize awarded by the Ministry of Culture and Tourism and the Ministry for Youth and Sport of the Azerbaijan Republic. His works can be found in private collections across Europe and at the State Museum of Art in Azerbaijan. Mahmud is an acknowledged master, whose work was acquired in 2013 by a major collector during the London exhibition “At the Crossroads”, organized by the auction house Sotheby’s. The sole participant in the “012 Baku Public Art Festival” project, inspired by the idea that the Maiden Tower is of extraterrestrial origin, which took the risk of setting up a golden sculptural figure of a visitor from another planet right in the center of the city... This is Mahmud Rustamov, artist, and the latest representative of a well-known artistic dynasty. The sculptor's works are at the same time aggressive and beautiful, full of refined eroticism and self-mockery. Brittle marble, rounded, almost female forms, through which mysterious flowers made of black rubber, erupt. Some might see these dangerous flowers as more like the sharp claws of a hawk, tormenting the tender white marble flesh. Thorns and roses are inseparable. Cool restraint can be combined with unbridled sensuality. The essence of nature goes hand in hand with the triumph of genetic engineering – the sculptor's works are like that. Looking at them, we ask ourselves: “Who do we have here – creatures of flesh and blood or superb bio-robots?” The same feeling of duality and bipolarity arises when we view the works made from bronze... At the center of the exhibition is the skull of the dragon brought low by St George's hand... From a gaping wound, a bayonet from the time of the Civil War protrudes, a weapon that languished for many a year at the back of the extinct fireplace in Granddad’s old house.

Teymur Rustamov was born in 1960, in Azerbaijan, Baku. He graduated from Azim Azimzadeh College of Art and Tbilisi Art Academy faculty of sculpture. His works are held in state museums in Baku and the Azerbaijan Culture Center in Paris. Teymur Rustamov is considered an important emerging artist in Azerbaijan, because his work was also featured at the 53rd Venice Biennale in 2009 and 5th International Biennial of Contemporary Art Baku. Teymur´s offer approaches something like reality seen through different alternative media. We see a new rendition of reality expressed in sculptures, video art, soundscapes, abstract works, animation and some audio-visual animation, inspired by a mix of ancient and contemporary art, Art-Déco, science fiction and music. His sculptures, video art and graphic works, present the viewer with an alternative perspective on the real world. The graphic works that are computer-generated, such as “Blue” or "Red", can create an intersection between society and technology. The result of all these efforts often creates a different concept of beauty, definitely poignant but certainly not in natural form.

His ability to engage with his subjects on an extremely honest and raw level has made him a trusted choice for a wide spectrum of female celebrities, including Kate Moss, Ines de la Fressange, Emma Watson, Gemma Arterton, Darcy Bussell, Erin O’Conner and Daisy Lowe.

Andrea Giuseppe Picci was born in 1989 and grew up in Lausanne, Switzerland. After studying photography at ECAL (Ecole Cantonale d’Art de Lausanne), he moved to Paris (France) in order to complete a BA of Graphic Design and Visual Communication at ESAM (Ecole Supérieure de Arts Modernes). In 2013, motivated by a will of polyvalence, he moved to London and obtains a MA of Fine Arts in the prestigious Central Saint Martins UAL (University of Arts of London).He had the honor to present his artworks next to the most influent artists such as Banksy, Damian Hirst, and even the iconic Andy Warhol. Constantly exploring new art techniques, oscillating between music, video directing, painting, sculpture, audiovisual realization, art installation and, more recently, even performance, Andrea loves to break the boundaries, in order to create new shapes and meaning to the classic sense of art. During the summer of 2015, one of his art projects created a buzz, as he impersonated Peter Doherty and succeeded being published on the cover of french newspaper Le Parisien instead of the infamous rockstar. Les Inrockuptibles noted that « impersonating a fake Doherty in a picture sold as real, the sosie (Andrea Picci) joined an appropriationist art process in a Richard Prince’s style, questioning the construction of identity (hello Cindy Sherman) and tackled our society of the spectacle. »

Luka Moncaleano was born in Piacenza in 1990. He attended the first year of the "Bruno Cassinari" School of Arts in Piacenza and dedicated himself, in his spare time, to artistic research.

Agneta Hildén was born in Sweden, Gävle, in 1959 and it is educated both as architect and artist from Sweden and France. Currently she lives and work in Stockholm’s archipelago, on Mouse Island. Her palette is colourful and her artworks are studies and research of human nature. She expresses a deeper meaning in her artworks and she draws skilful with a typical line. LA MODULOR is her main study about female proportions etc in the grammar in architecture. Of course in history, mens body and mind has been the issue. For example who Agneta E Hildén studied in Paris was Le Corbusier, Vitruvius etc. The old grammar in Architecture She calls her study LA MODULOR. The study is based on observations of her own body and mind and space and time. To Agneta E Hildén art and architecture connect more and more on an deeper plane inside the human as archetypes. From this artstudy Agneta E Hildén also now started to develop architectural projects in several countries. Her work is commended in how it pushes boundaries – Agneta’s work in examining the female form, body and mind is groundbreaking and alleviates her architectural designs. Originally inspired by the French modernist architect Le Corbuisers and his study LE Modulor, most of the work in art and architecture combine with inspiration from how the female body and soul expresses itself.  Agneta E Hildén says it’s very important and absolutely necessary because otherwise in the future we will create empty rooms in society. Females have to express their own rooms. In addition, there is also a kind of human sustainability: how people can understand each other’s reality from different gender, cultures, economic systems, et cetera. She already participated with USIA in several events, such as the “Exclusive Exhibition” at the Bulgari London Hotel, “Four Seasons” at Ritz Four Seasons and her solo exhibition at Eurostars das Letras, where she displayed more than 25 works, spanning most of the entire career works.

He has also been featured in several books and TV shows. Since 2007, he exhibited in Austria, China, Italy, US, Hungary, Portugal, France, Sweden and Spain. Friedhard Meyer´s abstract works create an illusion of space developed out of an accumulation of spontaneous, reactive gestures, closely associated with the De Stijl and Concrete art movements. His work creates an unusual experience, pulling the viewer into its world by the dynamism of the composition in a symbiosis of vitality and harmony. “With this project I have set myself the task of reducing paintings to colours, and to let colours lead the way, ways of abstracting colours as much as possible, reducing them to the impact they may have, i.e. turning colours into art.”, he says. For him “paintings convey a message that goes beyond the feeling of colourful and formal.

She already exhibited her work in Portugal, Qatar and Spain. Her last participation was at the Katara Foundation in Doha, an USIA project based in Transitory Art movement.

Sahatarch Pittarong, professionally known as Sahatarch is a visual artist who graduated from London College of Communication, University of the Arts London (UAL) in Illustration, Experimental Illustration and Digital graphic. After graduation, he worked for many magazines as commercial illustrator and columnist and worked for street wear brand as graphic designer. Now, he has worked for KitiRin Jewellery brand as a conceptual manager, art director and graphic designer and worked simultaneously as an international artist who has exhibited worldwide. In his own own words, Sahatarch has a main porpose, which is to motivate, stimulate and impress an audience to learn his arts by their own view. The struggle to get to the root of what could be a “fact of nature” and what could be a “nature of fact” is a central theme in Sahatarch’s work. He constantly explores the relationship between an uncertainty of nature and a certainty of fact by using uncontrollable and controllable techniques, arguably one of the most ancient debates in all great human civilizations.For this artist, art is universal art, combined narrative art, creative art, and innovative art. He explores it all by using many forms of media, including hand drawing, painting, illustration, sculpture, and graphic design that is full of colour and details. Like all the sages from the many thousands of years before us, Sahatarch is attracted by the mysteriousness of fact and the secret of nature. Sahatarch’s individual art has been created from independence, creativity, imagery and tangible vision. He creates art as any other observer of life ever since natural philosophers of the Classical days started illustrating and decorating their natural-philosophy notebooks. And he becomes yet another artistic scientist to experiment and make new creative and useful objects, gladly following the steps of his predecessors from the days of the Scientific Revolution.  As all other naturalists and natural theologians, he tells us about charming mysteries of this planet, and mathematical complications of the universe that only the angels could solve, as Newton believed they would. For Sahatarch, once you chose to be as an innovative artist, then art is important for the world because it can identify who we are, what we do, where we come from, when we change, and how we live. Art is a perfect tool to send messages and to connect to each other. For every important period humankimd lives through, art is a powerful sign of tradition and culture, of civilisation and revolution. Art gives us a better understanding of life, of nature, and even of the world. Without art, the world would not have grown up yet. Only something larger than life can pull entire societies out of childhood.

Cristina Albaker was born in Lisbon, Portugal. She currently lives in Doha, Qatar. In 2003, she graduated from IADE, the Creative University, in Lisbon, Portugal. She is recognized for landscape art paintings that develop ecological and psychoanalysis issues. These landscapes work as models to make us think about our ecosystems and their natural beauty, aiming to amplify the concern of nature protection. To fully appreciate Cristina´s paintings, we always need a deep and wide sense of time. “There is an endless source of radiant energy inside the speechless beauty of nature all around us.” she says. On the other hand, when she puts more emphasis on details and subjects, she also creates the illusion of a reality that in fact either does not exist or is beyond human eye. Her artworks are marked by a  combination of spiritual emotions and rêveries on the environment, on the confusion of time, on organic and inorganic, on magical places, always operated on her own terms, and beautifully unhindered by human presence.

The purpose behind this directional move was not only to understand but also capture the emotions of the subjects.
