Neill Wright is a multidisciplinary artist based in Johannesburg, South Africa. His satirical work braves the world of social commentary in a bold, colourful and humorous manner. Wright explores various mediums, such as sculpture, printmaking and painting as
modes of expression, drawing inspiration from the interconnected worlds of media, popular culture, politics and societal interactions in an attempt to create panoramic views of current issues, hardships, complexities and paradoxes present within South African and to some extent African society as a whole.
Alejandro Martín Moreno Alonso (a.k.a “OTTO”) is a young, emerging artist. Born in Mexico City in 2000, his art work is a mixture of Bauhaus style and modern architecture with colorful lines and curves full of life. In 2016, Otto tried his hand at producing his first piece made entirely of metal. That was the moment he realized he wanted to be a sculptor. His sculptures are a combination of the same piece
reproduced several times, creating a three- dimensional figure. Constantly looking for inspiration, sculpting gave Otto the ability to express himself creatively. His sculptures represent the care and love he has for his work and he views his art pieces as members of his family. He even considers his sculptures his kids; made by him and, at the same time, giving back a projection of his inner self.

Carlos Ramirez was born in Cuba. For political reasons his family moved to the United States when he was a child. His family’s story is like that of many immigrants, and he recalls those early days in New York: My parents came to this country with nothing but the clothes in their suitcase. They gave up a comfortable life that was deteriorating in hopes of a safe future. As an adult I can now admire their courage and determination.
