Angelika Millmaker is a Norwegian artist, and the essence of her work is rooted in the colours from Scandinavia and the elegant design of Nordic art. The Scandinavian landscape comes alive during the long summer days and the light nights of the midnight sun, which then becomes majestically silent as the autumn colours fade into the white snowfalls of winter. This quality of light gives colours a brilliance that is rarely found in other regions. The contrast between the cold almost whitish-blue winter landscape and the bright colours of summer is inspiring to the artist. Angelika's paintings are characterised by bold contrasts between colours, textures, shapes, and light.
Huang Yulong was born in 1983 in Anhui Province, China. In 2007, he graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Sculpture from the Jingdezhen Ceramic Institute in Jiangxi Province. As part of the new generation of Chinese sculptors and part of the post-1980 'only child' generation, Huang is strongly influenced by street styles such as hip-hop and street art in China. He combines this interest with his fascination with pottery and the material world in his works.
Edinburgh-based artist Robert Pereira Hind's unique artworks are perfect in any setting with their beautifully decorative gold palette. He mainly uses acrylic paint and organic photographic pigment in his works and layers it onto gilded wooden backgrounds coated with shellac and art glazes. An important element of the work is that each piece will slowly oxidise and mature in appearance over the years. While the artworks hang on your walls, the golden backgrounds will eventually take on a light and elegant tarnish over a period of ten to twenty years. Each piece will bring colour and light to any environment as ambient light reflects from the works to create a warm look and feel.

The artist aims to capture society in her work to preserve a slice of the current era for future generations.
Hong Kong artist Jane Peng is a contemporary abstract based in London. A key theme of her works is the exploration of landscapes - not the ones we see in the physical world, but the landscapes of our inner world. These landscapes comprise intense personal experiences, encounters, and emotions, all of which leave marks on a person's mental state. For Jane, these landscapes are often difficult to express in words. Thus, she turns to art to visually express these complex encounters. Jane considers her works as abstract expressionist creations, and she explores the landscapes of the inner world and the inevitable facets of life: change, disruption, resilience, and hope.
Dent-de-Lion du Midi works in contemporary art, film, illustration, sculpture, literature, and orchestral music. A classicist with a modern eye, his works explore the philosophical dichotomy between realism and myth. As a professional inventor, Dent-de-Lion holds numerous patents and was Director of Digital Research for LEGO, trailblazing projects in VR, digital toys, and feature film.
Alex SanVik's abstract expressionist paintings are centred around concepts of truth, love, simplicity and harmony, and the emotional impact of the image is always the main focus of his paintings. Working with acrylic on canvas or paper, Alex creates original artworks with rich colours, forms, and textures. He paints with his heart and is inspired by the surrounding world.
Born in 1982, Giorgi Kukhalashvili's works are a blend of impressionism, abstraction, and surrealism. His works often deal with the subject matter of nature, religion, and modernisation. Apart from aesthetics, Giorgi often inserts socio-political undertones and communicates larger narratives through his oil paintings. Art experts recognise him as an artist with a very peculiar technique and pictorial language. The Georgian artist is also the founder of an organisation called “Language of Art”, and his works have been exhibited in many countries such as Georgia, Netherlands, Russia, France, Belgium, Germany, and the USA.
Danish-Australian sculptor, textile designer, and ceramicist Naja Utzon Popov was born in Copenhagen, Denmark in 1973 into a family of artists. She inherited her creative genes from her grandfather, Jørn Utzon, a Danish architect known for designing the iconic Sydney Opera House in Australia; her mother, prominent Danish artist Lin Utzon; and her father, acclaimed Australian architect Alex Popov. Naja’s childhood years in Denmark have always been an important source of inspiration for her work, as were the years she spent in Australia studying drawing, painting and etching at the Julian Ashton Art School. Naja's influences from nature and her travels find expression in her work, where she translates her encounters with nature into textiles, glassware, ceramics, and sculptures. By adding her own personal touch to works that beautifully combine contemporary design with Mother Nature’s gifts, Naja carries on the family tradition of creating outstanding art.

Before becoming a full-time artist, she worked as a sustainable architect. In her abstract works, she passionately and energetically explores innovative stylistic techniques inspired by observations in nature.
