Handmade collages by Molokid 

Molokid is the alter ego of this freewheeling, rather off balance graphic designer of Buenos Aires. He finds a way to escape from the daily routine through his handmade collages. These act as an outlet, in which he works relations of forms, colours and textures. In his collages, Molokid seeks to construct and to destroy morphologic relations between the elements that interact in the composition, looking for a dialogue between the parts that shape the whole of the artistic piece. Vintage magazines, paper clippings, cutting elements and glue replace computers. It´s all about leaving the comfort that digital retouch programs offer and returning to the handcrafted thing. This way, manual experimentation is prioritized over conceptual subject matter. His work has been displayed in art galleries in Buenos Aires, and abroad.


Korean artist Horyon Lee’s pieces are classified as paintings, although they look much closer to photography. The suggestive and dynamic of his overlapping images, skirt flirts in this case with a highly erotic component, make them visually delightful.

Intersection by Alexander James 

The inspiration for many of James’ works is taken from a long artistic tradition of momento mori, highlighting the temporality and fragility of life for each of us. This is particularly evident in his Vanitas series directly influenced by the 17th century Dutch masters, and their way to express the inevitability of death in all things living. Revisiting the works of the 17th century Dutch Masters using period props, food and real insects including butterflies that he breeds himself. Each carefully staged underwater scene is created with subtle distortions of light & movement from the waters own wave energy to create a unique and painterly effect. The subjects appear as if to be floating in a black space that neither interferes nor disrupts the subject matter, the collaboration within this void offering a serene and dreamlike sensation.
