C215: Stemming from his thesis in art history and research in German and Anglo-Saxon Civilizations, Classic Painters haunt his imagination and art. Within the past two years C215 has published two conceptual, illustrated poetry books and participated in fifteen group shows. Recently he has increasingly used and mastered stencil applications in his own art. C215 is one of the most active French stencil artists in the streets and his World Tour keeps going though 2009.
EPHAMERON: Belgium artist, Ephameron, combines lyrical imagery and text. Through her art she recreates everyday feelings and thoughts, capturing precious moments in life. Recurring themes like hands, birds and female figures live in her pastel colored backgrounds and huge black tape drawings. She is currently a freelance artist working for national and international magazines. Her award-winning Web site www.ephameron.com has been an ongoing art project since 2000, her second book Found+Lost will be published in January 2009 by Bries in Antwerp.
JOAD: Born and raised in Athens, Greece, she is currently studying in Amsterdam for her postgraduate degree in Urban Studies. JOAD has developed her skills on various media from a young age and recently focused specifically on spray paint and street art. Her unique style concentrates on the female form and typically female aesthetics. Her female figures create intimate stories between themselves and the viewer, revealing their disarming vulnerability, as if they are whispering a secret: their present, their past, their scars, dreams, and hopes.
