Euan Roberts is an artist of mixed Bajan and Scottish heritage based in St-Leonards-on-Sea, UK. His artistic practice is focused on analysing the human condition, distilling feelings of humour, hope, suffering, joy, love and longing via his idiosyncratic cast of animal avatars and visual metaphors. Euan’s work is centred on what it means to be human but humans remain absent from his art. Instead, his visual narrative revolved around a changing cast of yogic bears, drunken crabs, lonely chimps and crying sharks.Euan’s work also examines his journey as a person of colour navigating their way through the art world and wider society. Additionally, motifs like his familiar black bear taking up space in urban environments reference the feeling of alienation that people of colour often feel in art world spaces.
Using analog art, digital art, video, installation, and other techniques, she creates overwhelming expressive spaces that merge the real and virtual worlds. Her paintings are characterized by abstract expressions in which “cats” and space seem to blend, and she expresses a world without boundaries between people, time, and space from her unique sensibility. Her creative motifs range from everyday scenes and experiences to classical and contemporary art, as well as Internet culture.
2009 Graduated from CFA Olivier de Serres (Dijon, France)
He was nourished by these two cultures, which have shaped his aesthetics and his personality. His works are influenced by pop-art, cubism and Italian futurism. The artist has recently explored more personal and intimate subjects depicting portraits, still lifes, landscapes and interiors. To express it visually, Bouillot has developed his own style, using black and white as the only colors in his palette. Light, balance and strong contrasts are his research themes.
The role of the artist is to capture the present, sometimes harmless, to sublimate it and draw from it its deep value, its spirit. should not hinder or slow down creativity, at the risk of confining the creative process in a single and narrow framework: I like a lot of things, and I want to convey this variety through my own vision and creative approach. This is my signature. I am not part of any specific movement, but mine.

Narita’s works feature mass-production toys that are tossed by people and become trash. By illustrating those wasted toy figures as well as parts of the toy that are scaled up, Narita’s sculpture brings out not only a sense of nostalgia but also an odd feeling for viewers who live in the consumer society.

Kanaria uses a technique of thickly applying milky white oil paint on the canvas as a base, and scratching it with a colored pencil before it dries. Her works span a range of stories and myths, flowers and plants, animals and humans, which create a connected world that transcends time and space. She intends to spread out the sensuality of living with satire and humor.

Kenz draws his inspiration from the human state of mind, memories and the tension between consciousness and unconsciousness. He is interested in exploring the concept of nostalgia and innocent childhood memories through the depiction of his own personal objects from early life such as rubber bath ducks and walking push toys. His work focuses on the relationship between humans and objects that have the ability to bring back strong visual memories. This is executed through his signature style of vibrant tones and artificial like color palette coupled with kinetic layering lines that provide dynamism.

With the theme of the “consciousness in fluctuation,” Kyaraai creates works focusing on the moment when contrasts such as clean and dirty, the Internet and the real world, and gender switch in one’s consciousness. She aims to create works that draw the viewer in with their unique catchiness, such as large eyes like those of the girls’ manga she was familiar with as a child, and colors like those of fancy goods, so that the viewer can build up interaction with the person depicted in the work.
マレフは独学の芸術家であり、常に新しい技術と新しい表現を探しています。彼は、ウガンダとモンゴルの困難な地域に文化センターとスケートパークを建設することを目的として、Learn And Skateが管理するプロジェクトである、非営利の「Learn and skate」展の支援に参加し、2015年から現在まで資金を調達しました。 彼はまた、ロンドンのCity Of TalentsとTheWaluso GalleryのVRショーにも参加しました。 彼の芸術は今や世界中に広がっています。
It’s been a decade now that the artist, Malef, spreads his graffitis in his home town of France. packmans , clouds, hearts, and his tag name are common on the different mediums that the artist uses : walls, skate parks, skate boards, bus shelters, extinguishers, canvas, Malef stops at nothing to spread his message of love and peace. His recurring motif of clouds became his signature. They symbolized his lost loved ones and it is in a very poetic manner that he spreads them out in a 1000 ways. For him, clouds express an universal langage, they have different aspects that change with time and each of us can see ourselves reflected in them, no matter who we are and where we are from. His art combines serious subjects with a candid touch thanks to simple and colorful elements. He finds his creativity in what he sees of the real world and transcribes it in an ingenious way in order for us to search that part of childhood that rest deep inside of us. Utopian and art lover, Malef wants to spread a clear and thoughtful message through his painting where always reigns a perfume of innocence.
Malef is an autodidact artist, always looking for new technics and new medium. He participated in help with the non profit “Learn and skate” exhibition and raise fund from 2015 to now, projects managed by Learn And Skate with the purpose of building a cultural center and a skate park in difficult zones in Uganda and Mongolia. He Also participated to the VR show with City Of Talents and The Waluso Gallery in London. His art is now distributed all over the world.
Born in Japan and raised in the California Bay Area, Maya Fuji is inspired by both her cultural heritage and the exploration of the liminal space she lives in as an issei (first-generation) mixed-race woman in the United States. She is fascinated by traditional Japanese mythology and folklore, as well as Showa and Heisei–era subcultures, and expands on these themes within the context of her personal experiences. A recurring theme in her work is the exploration of what forms our sense of identity, and how that can shift during one’s lifetime on account of generations living abroad. Imbuing the complexity of being multicultural, multinational, and multiracial is central to her works, as her paintings contrast the nostalgia of childhood memories with underlying feelings of being a foreigner simultaneously navigating Japanese and American communities. She illuminates self-discovery through narration and investigation of the otherness she has felt throughout her life and uses it as a catalyst to reconnect with and reclaim space within her heritage.
2020 Graduated from Osaka University of Arts, Department of Art Planning
By playing with variation of color shades of acrylic paint with the touch of a painting knife, as well as the abstract expressions created by the mixture colors, I try to express the fluctuation of a girl’s mind and her vivid and colorful world.
1999 Graduated from Osaka University of Arts,Fine Art Department
I have a vague scene of memory. A scene that I would be seeing from a car my mother or father was driving in my childhood. Though I had no idea where we were driving, I still remember I was simply watching scenery of odd buildings and houses in line.
Today, we have access to tremendous amount of information in the Internet. Among them, pictures and movies of landscape to which I have never been remind me of the buildings and houses in my memory. I then get to realize that something in the context of memory and experience is vague and weak.
My works brings unnatural outlines and inaccurate depth to the equivalence, which makes a distance from the equivalence and creates personal scenery. I believe that this new scenery experience is to advance my life.

Fu Jen University of Chinese literature 大学卒業
ウェイティン・チェンは台湾の台南で生まれ、漫画のキャラクターを描くのが大好きな子供時代を過ごしました。大学では、中国文学の専攻にて詩を学び、Roland L. Bachmannのフラグメントの概念に影響を受けました。チェンにとって、詩を書くことは「人生の一部」であると考えています。彼の主な作品は、アクリルで描かれた題材ですが、それはどこか詩的なストーリーを思い起こさせます。また、ビデオアートやアクションアート、彫刻など様々なメディアでの表現を通して自分の表現を深め、そこに子供と大人の違いを描き出そうとしています。いくつかの作品はリーパオ文化芸術財団のコレクションとして選ばれました。またグローバルな文脈で更なる表現追求のため、現在、東京藝術大学のグローバルアートプラクティスプログラムにて学んでいます。
Wei Ting Chen was born in Tainan, Taiwan in 1991. His childhood was full of cartoon, and he liked to draw the characters. In Fu Jen University, he majored in Chinese Literature and started to write poems. He read Roland L. Bachmann’s concept of fragment. Roland wrote his books as fragments. viewers can read his works like puzzle. For Chen, he thinks the writing is a slice of life. Writing poems became another way of making a drawing.
His work is mostly graphics with acrylic paints, often accompanied by poems that correspond to the visual parts and provide a complete sense of a story.
He also works with different media, such as video art, action art, and sculpture. He took part in Nuit Blanche Taipei in 2017, an art event with lots of performance. He still thinks about the expression of his work and show the differences between child and adult. Besides, some works he created is now in the collection of Lih-pao Cultural Arts Foundation.

Yok’s works use simple lines and shapes to portray the beauty of ordinary, everyday things. He argues that life does not necessarily have to be luxurious and extravagant; instead, beauty exists in simplicity. Yok’s unique, non-traditional paintings allow viewers to step away from the complexities of art criticism and face the work itself. He works to connect his aesthetic to a variety of mediums, including architecture and fashion.
Graduated from Saga Art College and Osaka Sogo College of Design
When humans first appeared on earth, I think we were just another life form, no different from all other animals and plants. With the birth of communities, languages and cultures, we eventually created a society of distinction, discrimination, and hostility.
We now live in a society with overflowing information, which pertains not only to our own community, language, or culture, and I feel that the profusion of textual and visual images is greatly affecting the way we distinguish and discriminate others from ourselves.
If the information we receive from our surroundings approached zero, what kind of emotions would arise? In such a moment of null, I contend that the distinction between ‘self’ and ‘other’ would disappear, and you would return to a primitive state of existence.
My artistic work is research to substantiate this hypothesis of utilizing the spatial device of ‘NULL’ to approach zero bias.
Zac Yeates’s work strives for a connection with the viewer, exploring personification and human forms using mixed media—mainly gouache and oil pastels—to reveal color-intensive portraits. Fascinated by ordinary life and elements of pop culture, Yeates evokes a parallel between the absurd and the comedic, a contradiction between the familiar and the strange, and a relationship between the artist and the viewer. Yeates was born in Western Australia but continues his artistic journey in Vilnius, Lithuania, reflecting the zeitgeist back onto the viewer with the final objective of mutual understanding expressed through a knowing smile.
Graduated from the China Central Academy of Fine Arts in 2020 with a doctorate degree.
