Molokid is the alter ego of this freewheeling, rather off balance graphic designer of Buenos Aires, Argentina. In his collages, Molokid seeks to construct and to destroy morphologic relations between the elements that interact in the composition, looking for a dialogue between the parts that shape the whole of the artistic piece.
José Luis López Galván is a Mexican surrealistic painter. In his paintings, fine art develops into dark surrealism, in a world where Velasquez and Hieronymus Bosch could go into ecstasies.
Lucio Diodati is Italian artist working mostly with figurative oil painting. Diodati’s paintings are populated by new character, ready to create mysterious and suggestive situations around women. Exotic zebras and sensuous felines will be women’s plunders, of their istinctive craze for figure, for dare until the extreme luxury. Furs, daring and zebrine clothes complete Diodati’s dreamy feminine figures, characters of his poetic world where men are not left out, but they are only spectators, funny and ingenuous presences.
Meko – conceptual and figurative artist from Spain.
