Ernest Zacharevic (Lithuania/Malaysia)

Lithuanian artist Ernest Zacharevic turns the corners of towns into a brilliant series of interactive murals. He first creates a setting mixing paint and real objects in an ordinary alley, then invites people to interact with this scene and takes pictures of their propositions. The goal is to guarantee the consistency between the setting and the participant to make the scene as lively as possible. Since Zacharevic was given the mission to embellish the Malay city of Penang, he settled there and spread his participative art through the run down streets of the city. His interactive murals have become a landmark in Malaysia. (cf. Street art community)

Paolo Patrizi | on Tumblr (Italy/Japan) - Starlings

"Across the spectrum of Patriziʼs work, we see an approach to visual storytelling that is marked by an intellectual and artistic vigor, at the heart of which is a compassion and feeling for the people and cultures he reveals in his vibrant essays", says Wayne Ford. Paolo Patrizi is a documentary photographer, whose recent stories explore the underlying themes and contradictions between traditions and modernity and cultural disconnections produced from rapid economic growth. Paolo’s subjects range from portraiture and feature projects to social issues and politics. His focus is always on the human and social aspects of a story.

He began his career in London working as an assistant to other professionals. While doing some freelance assignments for British magazines and design groups, he started to develop individual projects of his own. Today, his work is featured in leading publications and exhibited internationally.

Dimitri Tsykalov born 1964 in Moscov, Russia has used a number of varied tools - from electric drills to spoons - to create ornate skulls from fruit and veg! Over three years, Tsykalov has produced a collection of beautiful and rotten sculptures to comment on immortality, classical still life and consumer waste.

Inspiration is in the air and, at the same time, it is a complex work. It always comes from a form that strikes me. A kind of filter process in which old masters paintings, TV news, highways and supermarkets fuse to create a new entity…

I enjoy working with what I call “anti-matter” - not marble or clay, but meat, vegetables and wood. They are alive, fragile and as ephemeral as we are. Anyway, I’m no longer hungry after carving…
