Maxim is a contemporary British artist known for his outstanding paintings, sculptures, and ceramics. He often uses a mixture of sinister and beautiful images, for example, his “Lepidopterror” collection mixed beautiful butterflies with skulls and deadly weapons. A member of the hard-hitting British band The Prodigy, known for his fierce lyrics and vibrant sense of style, in both their videos and their explosive live shows.
Maxim has more recently become known for his creativity as an artist under the pseudonym of MM. Over several years he has displayed his mixed media artworks in various exhibitions across the world. The paintings are a journey into Maxim’s mind and have a surreal edge that takes you somewhere deep into his imagination. Certain pieces show rebellion, and the rise of the underdog and the weak. Signs of strength and positivity run deep throughout his work.
Nikko Saturnus Mercialo (Saint Saturday) is a Vancouver-based artist and designer. His creative production covers a range of media to address the paradoxical themes that define humanity. Such as the way destruction leads to creation, or how strength can arise from adversity. Inspired by the apocalyptic intensity of seemingly opposite forces that exist at the time, his work presents complex moods which are simultaneously atmospheric and incendiary — raw power and vulnerability, love and sorrow, divinity and doom, memory and moment, and the tidal sweep of identity and culture in a world that is both beautiful and brutal. He invites wild emotion and speculative contemplation in the same breath, challenging the audience to reflect upon themselves in the space between.
Mercialo is the co-founder of Mythology Media, a strategic branding agency, and is the Creative Director for several on-going projects.
Gustavo Amaral is a Brazilian artist who creates photographic collages that explore the human form. His works capture simultaneously the body in its external form, and the inner emotions and psyche that exist beneath its shell.
Gustavo Amaral weaves, glues and sews the fragmentation of himself in paper, fabric and textures. Using his own photographs and images from old magazines and books, the artist interprets personal feelings in his collages. Themes such as the human body, emotions, nature, architecture and the collective consciousness are prominent throughout his work.
