Artwork: The Stone Twins (IE)

The Stone Twins are the Amsterdam-based creative duo Declan & Garech Stone, originally from Dublin. Their studio which equally embraces the palettes of graphic design, art-direction and copywriting has a reputation for engaging and witty work.

“Echo Chamber No.1” (2018)
The metal artwork is a commentary on the pseudo-profound and the nothingness of social media. It’s a reflection on the distortion of reality and the endless scroll of narcissism. An attempt to give permanence to the ephemeral. A search to make sense of the nonsense.

Artwork: Audrey Stone – ‘I’ll Have What She’s Having’ (US)

[ artist statement ]
“Observing shifting color is an ecstatic experience for me. I am intrigued by transitions from one color to the next and the way the eye and brain process these transitions, informing the viewer’s emotional and physical response to the work.

Color gradients have become a prominent element in my work. Through the perception of light and color in nature I often find myself feeling both excitement and calm simultaneously, producing a desire to bring this dynamic opposition into my work.”

Artwork: Tânia Filipa Silvestre (PT)

Tânia Filipa is a very recognizable Graphic Designer based in Lisbon, Portugal. All the work that she presents is very carefully calculated and projected. She has her own Art Design project called TF Concept that was founded in March 2013. Through the years she has worked with a variety of clientage, from start-up labels to well-known clubs around the world.

The main influence present in all projects is minimal art. Simple, objective and catchy. Her approach is very striking and bold creating a beautiful outcome that combines an extremely strong and formal reduction in the use of neutral color-based products. Lines, circles, triangles and squares it’s always part of the process, the beauty of simple elements it’s what she stands for. Her work embodies her abstract vision in the electronic music world.

Artwork: Alex Avgud (Rus)

In his work, Alex Avgud explores the notion of power in both social and artistic contexts — where the former deals with beauty and tragedy of being human, the latter tackles limitations and possibilities of the photographic medium.

Recently he became fascinated with directing physical performances inspired by current political issues and translating them into emerged fictional interactions. Resulting in multidisciplinary works accompanied by a range of elements from 3D graphics and abstractions to altered found footage and sounds.
