Koen Hauser works as a photographer and visual artist. He finished his masters of science in social psychology, later followed by studying photography at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie.
Hauser is known for his intangible body of work flowing between fine arts, fashion and applied photography. From purely esthetical to highly conceptual, he frequently references or paraphrases the iconic visual language of historical photography, or even incorporates exisiting images into his work. Together with his distinguished feel for appearance and his love for the mysterious, alienating, strange and uncanny, these are the key elements that form the core of his body of work, which has a distinct metaphysical dimension.
Andrea Ucini is a self-thought Italian illustrator with a degree in composition and classic piano from the Music Academy of Florence and is specialized in conceptual illustration. The target of all his work is turning complex concepts into strong visual solutions without straying too far from the reality of everyday life.
Matt Hansel brings the Renaissance into the 21st century through image manipulation and decontextualization. Hansel’s work wrestles with the concept of the self and the human desire to be seen and remembered. He combines the rigor of traditional European painting with the conceits of 20th century conceptual art.
The artist painstakingly recreates self-portraits of historically significant artists. Thinking of his works as re-enactments, Hansel juxtaposes past and present. By recreating the image of the artist who once was, Hansel attaches his own intentions to that of the artist. He duplicates, doubles, mirrors and inserts himself into the works. Using a mix of humor and pathos, Hansel asks us to recognize the way we see ourselves through others.
Filip Hodas is a graphic designer from Prague. Very skillful with 3D softwares, he creates during his free time impressive conceptual compositions and imaginary landscapes with very detailed and realistic textures.
Kyung Woo Han is on a whole other level with his conceptual work. He plays on your perceptions to make you look at the work from more than one perspective. The real genius is the simplicity of the work. It is the subtle and precisely placed details that make the work so effective.
