Sam3 is a Spanish artist whose artwork is ironical, poetic, inspiring, but also provocative and challenging. Sam3 is well known for his large scale black and white paintings that remind of silhouettes or shadows. The reduction of colors and clear simple shapes caused by their intense presence builds the focus of his paintings and turns them into a magnet for the observer. Sometimes they even take the space of the whole house wall and refer to the urban surrounding. read more

BLO is a French artist and a member of Da Mental Vaporz crew (DMV) who uses creativity as a device to question, invert or pervert aspects of daily life. There is a recognizable speed of the hand, looseness of line, as well as composition and materials (the frequent use of spray paint and ink marker) that directly draw from traditional graffiti. BLO is still actively working in urban settings, but is moving away from letter styles and illustrative characters. His current street work has become more figurative, drawing from religious imagery, sex, death, and classical painting. Within the exploration of this subject matter another parallel to graffiti is conceptualized–the assertion of power by actively defacing or reappropriating common images. This difference in context between the street and in the studio does not divide the work, but creates a visual dependency – a mutual relationship that ultimately strengthens both parts of his practice. read more
