Takanori was born in Yokohama, Japan. He studied Japanese traditional textiles and dyed clothing in Tokyo Zokei University. He became later a freelancer illustrator for Maze magazine. Now days he’s famous for creating astonishing mini buildings using mixed media such as Suiseki stones and paper taking inspirations by his fervid imaginations and from bonsai tree art. He is helped in the construction of these amazing small architectures by civil engineering Murakami which shares with him a passion for Art.
Kate works with acrylic paint, inks and other mediums. Her landscapes explore the sublime in nature adding to it a sense of toxicity and artificiality. “I am fascinated by the way the movement of the paint mimics something from the natural world such as a lava flow, a landslide, an avalanche” she says in her artist statement. “Within the dried paint pour I look for something that looks like a tree branch, a cliff or a mountain and then cut and collage the pieces. I use airbrush to achieve sky and watery effects and finally resin as a finishing surface.” (Kate Shaw, artist statement)

Alessandro lives in Milan where he produces his marvellous paintings. This selection comes from a series of pictures, which are inspired by a certain genre of movies, Horror, Noir or as we say in italy “poliziesco”. Some of them have a black stripe on the bottom with the title wrote in white, almost as they were movie posters. The paintings all share a unique atmosphere which is enhanced by the artist original practice of disfeature the faces and the body characteristics of the people portrayed.
