South African born A.Dub is a New York based artist. A designer/art-director/illustrator by trade, A.Dub fairly recently started experimenting with stencils and wheat-pasting in central Hong Kong and New York. Now, on a trip to Cape Town South Africa, he had the opportunity to do a series of large scale murals and plans to continue down the path of larger formats.

DALeast landed on this planet in 1984 in China, he then decided to live as an artist in this life. He studied sculpture at the Institute of Fine Arts and began doing art on public space at 2004 under the alias DAL. He is inspired by the way the material world revolves, how the spiritual world unfolds, life’s emotions and the infinite space around us. He uses different mediums, methods, disciplines and spaces to create his works.

Oscar San Miguel Erice. Born November 19, 1980 in Santander, based in Madrid since 2000. Graduated in Fine Arts from the University Complutense of Madrid. He painted in major urban art events, he been painting in the streets since 1997.

Growing up in Los Angeles and very active in the West Los Angeles Graffiti scene since the mid 1990’s, Kofie’One, as he became to be known, is a skillful and well respected street artist.Drawing on his craft of lettering he has developed an abstraction that goes beyond the traditional 3 dimensions of our known world into a crafted world that builds on itself.

The work of Andrzej Urbanski explores the structural principles inherent within our environment. It consists of murals, paintings and objects of experimental forms, shapes, geometrical structures and a wide range of color-segments. These shapes, lines and segments are often taken directly from physical objects in the world around him, stripped to their basic geometries, rendered both 2 dimensionally and 3 dimensionally with clean edges and opaque surfaces.

Louis Masai Michel explores the concept of human as animal through the painting of anthropomorphised creatures – adorning them with sentiment, attributes and paraphernalia of the modern world.

Breez is “An artist of different kinds” based in Jozi but hailing from Nyanga East in iKapa. rying to do provoke through his graffiti, illustration and film work, Brees wants to make us think. All of his work is pregnant with political meaning.

Nard the beautifully demure artist is from Rondebosch, Cape Town, she started graffiti at the age of 18. Nard has always had an avid interest in art even though she did not take any art lessons at school. She remembers sketching on paper since the age of eight. Nard studied Graphic Design at Cape Peninsula University of Technology, which she feels has some kind of influence over her work

Mike  Maka (Australia)*

Mike Maka works in a variety of media including street art, canvas and illustration. He has travelled and created work around the world. His work is preoccupied with the interface between man, beast and machine. Presenting a visual riot that stimulates the mind, Mike’s art conveys an imperative message to those confined in the concrete jungle to stay connected to the animal within them that lives in the natural world.
