Artur Bordalo aka Bordalo II is a Portugese street artist born 1987 in Lisbon. He presents us a figurative painting full of vivacity and movement, where he paints his own interpretation of urban landscapes and city entertainment. He’s exploring his own mixed media on wood stand base, and are thus made a series of collages of objects (garbage). It is not only a way to recycle, but also a critique of the world we live in, where we often have nice things, which are based on junk without realizing it.

Brendan Shea is an 18 year old artist from the United States. He got his start in drawing during his sophomore year of high school, and since then has become a self-taught illustrator and painter. When asked what inspired him to begin creating his delicate and beautiful pieces, Brendan said:

“When I started creating, I desperately needed an emotional release in my life, so I picked up art as a hobby. Now it’s so much more than a hobby… I’m very inspired by the human form and evoking emotion. [I’d describe my art as] fragile, emotional, and tender.”

Some of Brendan’s favorite artists are Marina Abramovic, Caledonia Dance Curry / Swoon, and Carne Griffiths.
