Mexico City based artist Martin Ferreyra was born in the city of Cordoba, Argentina. Regarding the arts, he is mainly self-taught, participating in workshops in painting and ceramics. In recent years his work has been divided between those two, developing a personal world within his visual imagery. He has been investigating and working with concepts around identity, ritual, and myth, latent in the collective unconscious of latin culture.

Los Angeles based artist Meagan Boyd‘s work often depicts utopian atmospheres filled with modern day nymphs, deities, holy beings, and party monsters who reveal the the interconnectivity of animals, people and nature. Through her art making process, she explores the transcendence between dreams and waking-life in the context of magic and myth.  Using an explosive color palate along with intricate line-work, her freakishly folkish style combines the nostalgic essence of the fauves juxtaposed with a neon-like urban glow.
