Georgia Russell est une artiste écossaise connue pour ses oeuvres faites à partir de livres, dessins ou photographies qu’elle découpe au scalpel pour en faire des pièces en trois dimensions. Née dans une famille où l’art et la création sont très présents elle se tourne très vite vers des activités créatives. Un père architecte, un grand-père musicien de jazz, une grand-mère qui travaille dans une filature et fabrique des tartans et une tante parmi les premières femmes à étudier l’art à Aberdeen constituent le terreau de ce qui la poussera à rêver de devenir artiste. Sa passion, sa ténacité et son talent lui permettront d’entrer au Royal College of Art de Londres  où ses idoles, comme David Hockney, ont étudié avant elle.

Augustine Kofie est un artiste urbain de Los Angeles connu pour ses abstractions et considéré comme le pionnier du graffuturisme. Issu d’une famille d’artistes et intéressé par les arts manuels, le graphisme et le dessin, il évolue d’abord dans le milieu du skateboard. Il y découvre un univers culturellement riche et varié en termes de musique et de références artistiques. De petits projets générés au hasard des rencontres, il plonge peu à peu dans l’expression qui deviendra son art.
