PROTECTION BY JENNY POKRYVAILO
Jenny Pokryvailo born in St. Petersburg, Russia, is an illustrator and a tattoo artist who undertook her studies in the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Jerusalem and in Instituto Europeo di design in Milan, Italy. Many years of designing and drawing experience lead Jenny to shape a personal style that often combines elements from nature and man-made objects exploring the relationship between shapes, materials and textures, always with a fantastical air. Curves vs lines, soft vs solid, flow vs steadiness, feminine vs masculine - Pokryvailo’s unique and favorite compositions are distingised by contrast.

Being a minimalist, she believes in the design that is definitive in its appearance and has a clear statement. The artist achieves that by using a strict monochromatic ink demonstrating the magical ability of the black color to capture the pure essence of things.

NÚVOLS BY ILUSTRACHO
Nacho Sánchez who goes under "Ilustracho" graduated from the Elisava Design Academy of Barcelona. Throughout his trajectory as an illustrator, he has always looked for a personal language characterized by the use of vibrant colors and textures that connect his digital work to something more human. In his illustrations he brings charismatic characters that are sweet, docile and harmless that represent such concepts as incomprehension, anxiety and fear. This contrast allows Ilustracho to generate a bridge between the appearance of things and what is really behind them.

Ilustracho’s main goal is to create a dialog between him and the viewer through empathy and give a voice to very common feelings that are hard to bring light to.

In a parallel and stealthy way, dance, martial arts and performing arts have been the platforms where he was able to use his knowledge from the graphic world, producing logos and posters for theater companies, performances with painting, photographic reports, mural painting.

MOO BY EM BOLIEU
Wildlife technician and illustrator Em Bolieu finds herself joyfully working on many scientific illustration projects in the province of Quebec, Canada where she was born. Her art process is about drawing things she is in love with: birds, butterflies, mountains and animals, - and spending probably too many hours finding the perfect colors to reflect that love. She lives by sea and forest, which comes through in her rich, colourful digital illustrations, bursting at the seams with narrative and charm.

Em says she is just obsessed with color and also fascinated by science and anything vintage and uses illustration as a way to reunite unlikely partners in one dance.

RISK BY CÉSAR MARCÉN
A fine arts graduate in Barcelona, César Marcén approaches his artistic projects from an ironic and surreal perspective. Among his work we can find typography art, epic portraits and drawings representing the apocalyptic scenes which seem to come from a dream world. His light and expressive brushwork glides across the page, recreating the human or animal form with an inherent elegance. A lover of Indie comics and experimental electronic music, he finds joy in a digital drawing. His most notable graphic references range from Katsuhiro Otomo, James Jean and Daniel Richter to classic figures such as Albrecht Dürer and El Bosco.

César is currently working as a graphic manager in a high-end fashion brand that will start its journey this year in Barcelona.

LITTLE RED RIDING HOOD SYNDROME BY ALDO CRUCES
Aldo Cruces originally hails from Cuba and started drawing at an early age and soon after got into graphic design, focusing heavily on the beauty of composition. His work is characterised by the use of traditional tools (pencils and pen), attention to detail as well as a strong sense of colour. He masterfully makes use of the latest technology available by combining traditional drawing with digital illustration, and by creating fully digital graphics. He enjoys the process of reading texts, imagining the scenes, and then capturing them into his work.

Using limited graphic elements in bold, two-or three-color compositions with black and white, Aldo Cruces’s conceptual editorial illustrations are featured in newspapers and magazines internationally. His designs can also be found in advertisements, on various product packaging, and today in space!

RISK BY BELÉN MORENO
Belén Moreno was born in sunny Sevilla and graduated in Fine Arts from the University of Granada, the place where she met and fell madly in love with illustration. With a classic style, steeped in tradition and popular culture, she aims to tell stories full of insight and subtle narratives, leaving an open door for the reinterpretation. The chromatic scarcity prevails in her figurative work contrasting with the meticulousness and exaggeration of the detail.

Today she brings on board of Exquisite Workers the experimentation and fun in pure state without losing the delicacy of the good know-how.
