David Schwen 1

David Schwen is currently a Design Director at Mono in Minneapolis, Minnesota. He graduated from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design (MCAD) with a BFA in Graphic Design. Previous studio experience has included Fallon, Carmichael Lynch, and working on his own as a freelancer. Schwen never settles with a style or approach, and he is always trying to re-invent the way he illustrates and designs.

“Any artistic activity that does not combine real experience and experimentation will not achieve its aim and would not contribute a new voice to the discourse of art.” —Unknown (more…)

Anderson Horta 1

Anderson Horta is a 27-year-old product designer from Brazil, with an unfinished Master’s degree in France, who designs deeply emotive products. His work is based on human observation and all the products have a concept that transmit a message to make think and fill life. ‘Design is about people, not about objects’.

Payam Montazami

Payam Montazami 01

Born in Iran, raised in Belgium and educated in Montreal, Payam Montazami has been combining the Surrealist expression of the unconscious with culturally relevant subject matter for over 10 years. Through painting and sculpture, Payam’s work aims to challenge and probe the audience just as much as the audience does his works. On the surface, one is drawn in by the distorted beauty and underlying humor of Payam’s pieces, and this often leads to a deeper emotional connection with the work. Through use of unusual materials and color, Payam aims to accentuate and contrast the unnatural creatures that inhabit his otherworldly landscapes. Payam’s series entitled “Slices of the Perverse” is no exception, and represents a collection of mixed media works dealing with the consequences of cosmetic surgery married with genetic engineering.

Payam’s work uses traditional forms of art media such as paint and physical materials, bolstered by his years of experience experimenting with electronic and digital arts. His minimalist interactive installations have been unleashed for public consumption on numerous occasions, most recently with inclusion at the Montreal S.A.T. Interactive Arts Exhibits. Payam’s pieces have been nominated for various “best of show” awards, based on the strong innovation, inventiveness and entertainment value of his work. He currently resides in Montreal where he continues to produce unique pieces as well as supporting his website, which is aimed at helping young undiscovered artists in his community. Payam holds a BFA from Concordia University in Montreal. (more…)

Rhys Owens 01

Hidden Moves is the toybox for the collected works of Welsh designer and illustrator Rhys Owens. He grew up in the decade of Rubik’s Cubes, Thundercats, and the ZX Spectrum, and nurtured his creative talents by decorating the faces of his sister’s dolls with a ballpoint pen.

In later life, he began experimenting with photography, illustration, and digital 3D to create his own unique style. This included the creation of a number of slightly surreal characters – the product of an overactive imagination and too much caffeine.

He spends the rest of his time sleeping, eating, and playing far too much Xbox. (more…)
