Ashley was born in Johannesburg in 1984 and is currently living in Scotland. She is a no boundaries artist, rushes between performance, sculpture and drawing and between the the animal that is inside human nature and the homo sapiens sapiens.

Hara Katsiki

Hara was born in Greece and lives in Berlin. She moves on different platforms never losing her original style made of pale gray and pure white mixed with ghost black. Her pararrel “mondo” is populated by innocent creepy creatures, old images magically turned alive by gif animations and actual by a strong vision of contemporary global discomfort. Most of her alien human beings seem at ease and comfortable in her universe, can we declare the same thing? Check more and more of Hara’s amazing artworks here and more of her eCollage serie after the cut.

Olle Essvik

Olle is a game artist from Sweden. Endgame is his latest creation, a mix between an ancient 8bit game (but made in Flash) and an anti utopian drama. In his words: <<The work consists of a programmed interactive animation sequence, where the gaming element has been left out and what remains is a kind of theatre play that you control with your computer keyboard.>>. Every floor brings a surprise, it’s like descending the hell of capitalistic society. You can play it HERE  for a limited time. More images after the cut.
