Ibrahim Said

From the narrow streets, pottery ovens, and noisy workshops of Fustat, Ibrahim Said was born in 1976. Fustat is an area in Cairo, Egypt that has etched its name in the history of the pottery industry since the Islamic conquest.  Ibrahim comes from a family of potters, and his father became his first teacher and the rich cultural heritage of Egypt became his second. 
Known for his elegant vases that are included in some prestigious Middle East collections, Ibrahim’s work is inspired by the ancient work of Egyptians- the strong lines and bold shapes- although his signature work embodies a lightness that comes from his silhouettes, small bases, and delicate finials.
His carvings are derived from Islamic jug filter designs, which were both functional and aesthetic. The carved area in the neck of the jug filtered out impurities when water was collected in the Nile.  Ibrahim wanted to find a way to bring these ancient carvings back to life while somehow maintaining their history.
He has participated in workshops and demonstrations throughout the Middle East, and has been highly recognized for his technical ability, creativity, and innovation in the field of ceramics.

In recent years artist Juan López (born 1979 in Alto Maliaño, Spain) has been working with different formats such as drawing and video, but the core of his work is a series of ephemeral interior and exterior murals. In his interior pieces, he uses drawings made with adhesive materials to change the perception of the space; in his exterior ones, he throws out messages to spectators using aspects of advertising language without actually selling anything.(via artdiscover)

Marcantonio Raimondi Malerba was born in 1976 in Massalombarda, Italy. He attended the Art Institute and the Academy of Fine Arts. Soon he begins to create unique pieces of design in parallel with a production of art, but step by step the two careers are beginning to become contaminated.

Connections between Man and Nature are his favourite theme. He loves thinking about his work as a direct continuation of what he used to do when he was a child, playing with everything he founds, and create what her mind immagine, taking ideas from the same sources he created while playing:stones, branches, crystals and fossils.

The main inspiration come from nature and its life principles. He learned from Art how an idea could be elegant, that’s why he’s always looking for pure concepts and summary.
