Argentinian artist Miri Baruch was born in 1964 and moved to Israel when she was 15 years old. Painting is her most profound passion, and she is inspired by colours and shapes of nature, the sky, the clouds, the trees, the sea, and the mountains. She is also inspired by the human body and facial gestures. Miri considers the process of making an abstract painting an adventurous journey. For the artist, it starts with a few random strokes and slowly develops, layer by layer until she feels she has conveyed the story to the canvas. When creating her vibrant paintings, Miri enjoys exploring abstract elements and adding dynamic dimensions to her canvases. She paints with acrylic using brushes, spatulas, and sponges. She also occasionally works with oil, incorporating cold vax medium to the oil paint.
Born and based in France, Mea Ambrozo has exhibited her works nationally and internationally. The artist uses painting, photography, and drawing to explore themes of nature, architecture, and time through shadow, contrast, and colour. Mea describes her work as semi-abstract, and she creates pieces that generate meaning without referring directly to concrete ideas. She uses acrylic paint and pigments on linen canvas and Sennelier wood fibre. She is deeply inspired by Anglo-Saxon paintings and artists such as Edouard Hopper and David Hockney. A sense of silence is something that can be felt in each of her paintings. She explores the silence of deserted streets, isolated houses, and rooms that seem empty.
Romanian artist Andrada Elena Anghel moved to Montreal, Canada in 2000, and this is when her dream to became a full-time artist transformed into reality. When she paints, she prefers to let her natural instinct and spontaneity guide her. To the artist, the material used in an artwork has the ability to express something and tell a story. Most of her works have thick textures that give a three-dimensional quality to the piece. Andrada experiments with different mediums, and her works are inspired by nature, myths, and legends. Through her abstract painting, she tries to encapsulate several dualitys: abstraction and figuration, textures and fine lines, and reality and myth.
Muriel Napoli lives and works in Marseille, a port city in southern France. Her works evoke a sense of connection between living beings and inanimate objects. Muriel is inspired by nature and its ability to change regardless of humanity's actions. She draws visual imagery from the creation of the oceans and the formation of fire and magma. She utilises the scientific origins of these elements and focuses on conveying the organic essence in her paintings.
A product of dual heritage, Tamary Kudita was born in Zimbabwe whilst her ancestry can be traced back to Orange Free State, a historical Boer state in Southern Africa. She chose to study fine art at Michaelis School of Fine Art at the University of Cape Town. There, she graduated in 2017 with a bachelor of fine arts. Subsequently, she established herself in fine art photography thus beginning her artistic career. She maintains an active studio practice and has exhibited in Zimbabwe and outside the country. Her investigation of colonialism's legacy on the family structure has resulted in works and solo exhibitions that delve into the history of the postcolonial identity.

Justin’s paintings, installations, and mixed media works are assemblages of appropriated imageries and borrowed signs from a variety of Pop culture sources such as cult or popular films, cartoons, comic books and graphic posters. His works examine the contemporary social context, touching on issues such as politics, culture and religion by using potent metaphors usually associated with urban subcultures and applying a cut-and-paste painting method in which eclectic images are juxtaposed to create startling interpretations.
American artist Adrian Sibley paints with the goal of placing the viewer in different frames of consciousness. His ultimate goal is to open his viewers' subconscious through his abstract expressionist-style works. To the artist, if his abstract forms can make his viewers feel slightly uneasy, he feels that his paintings have done their job. The titles of his works are mostly inspired by music, colours, emotions, and the complexity of human life.

British artist Gill Bustamante paints large colourful semi-abstract landscapes and wildlife paintings with a magical quality. Whilst her paintings are mostly inspired by the Sussex landscapes that surround her, she captures most of the environment that she encounters. Her style fuses fantastical, vibrant, and ethereal elements with a range of styles such as impressionism, abstraction, Art Nouveau, and something she terms 'memory impressionism'. This involves the artist walking amongst a rural landscape, absorbing and experiencing the sights around her. She then tries to emulate the essence of the place from memory.
