Artist Ravi Zupa sees books as the best way to experience art. He spent decades studying books on art, mythology, religion, and the history of cultures across geography and time. Entirely self-taught, Zupa looks to the works of German Renaissance printmakers, Flemish Primitives, Abstract Expressionists, Japanese woodblock printmakers and Mughal painters for inspiration. He also frequently incorporated religious iconography from Europe, Asia, and pre-Columbian Latin America into revolutionary propaganda around the world.

Meep (Kophie Hulsbosch) is an artist based in Christchurch, New Zealand whose work spans a wide range of fields including graphic design, illustration, painting, graffiti and clothing design. This production is strongly influenced by hip hop culture, popular art and the question of sustainability. A central intention in his work is the disruption of the status quo, reflected in his graffiti and clothing brand.
