Dominique Baron-Bonarjee is the definition of a cosmopolitan artist based everywhere and nowhere simultaneously. Her performances are well organised and thoughtful but yet emotional and deeply rooted in human nature and expression. She is a keen observer of social behaviours and questions how we engage, communicate or even react to our inner self. Talking to her is one of the most inspirational moments within this project. Dominique is currently working on her PhD, and we wish her all the best.
"Digital, analogue, inspiring, futuristic, spiritual" attributes that would perfectly fit in a description of Dennis Rudolphs artworks. He truly is a 21-century artist working with augmented reality while simultaneously bringing colours on the canvas. His works are a transformational play between an analogue reality and a fairytale digital cosmos. Doing that, he maintains to examine human behaviour in its beauty and its ugliness.
Maxim Gunga is a german artist based in Berlin. Friends, family and the emotional effect and leverage of colours are his primary source of inspiration.

Chrisine Erikah Brey
Born in the south of Germany Christine Erikah Brey found her interest in art and drawing at a very young age. Her works are predominantly drawn with graphite, and her motives are somehow taking out of an everyday life situation, but jet still contains surreal elements. She is a member of a female artist collective aimed to break the stigmatisation of drawings not being or considered infantile art. Christine's pieces are amazingly detailed and transport the amount of time and patients needed to create them.

Asked how she would describe her artworks, she answered: "Me experimenting with paint and having fun."
Marcus Jealinho is a german based artist with roots in Brasil. He grew up with his caring adoptive family, where he was exposed to art at a very early age since his uncle is a painter and sculpturist too. Pan-African tradition and stories are the foundation of Marcus' creations. Art to him is a form of therapy and a triumph over pain and hardships, something infinite and borderless, a constant requestioning of the status quo.
Tarik Chebli is a French painter born in Nantes. His works look and feel like gateways to a fairytale world. Inspired by Japanese garden culture and nature, he creates mystical and yet very realistic atmospheres. Perfectionism is something evident in his works even though his process of creation doesn't resemble it. Paradoxically, his works simultaneously appear like a chaotic result of an artistic act.

Thomias Radinís paintings are collages of cultural references through which he investigates questions of identity and epistemology. Elements of urban culture, juxtaposed with elements of early-modern European art create a map of aesthetical values that have informed the artistís practice. Borrowing to the musical technique of sampling, fragments of these memories and references are reappropriated. - Beya Othmani
