Shut Up Claudia (@shutupclaudia)
Portuguese Freelancer Illustrator, Graphic Designer and Clown
Have you ever tried to get back to a place you glimpsed once a long time ago? When I was growing up my family moved many times, and every new home held mysteries and secrets. I knew there was a hidden stairway that led to unknown attics somewhere, or cellars underneath that held forgotten treasures. I knew I could get there if I just kept looking.
That low door is still elusive, but when I pick up my pencil or paint brush, I know I can find it for a little while. When I paint I try to bring a little of that magic country back with me.
Bauhaus Movement (@bauhaus-movement)
Rethinking the world. Learn how the Bauhaus influenced design history with its emphasis on theory and practice as taught by the masters.
For many artists, architects and designers, the Bauhaus was an ideology and a conviction, not just a school of arts and architecture. Experimenting with new materials and forms entailed a whole new living environment.
Leibal is focused on the most recent minimalist works in regards to architecture, interiors, furniture, and products.
Mattias Adolfsson (@mattiasadolfsson)
Freelance illustrator from Sweden
Dan Covert is an artist and director who lives in Brooklyn, NY. He began to experiment with painting and woodworking as a way to reconnect with making. Since then, he developed a graphic language of organic and decisive forms. His work explores structuring and ordering these abstract shapes so they appear composed yet spontaneous. Dan is as interested in negative space as he is the positive, while he continues to develop new forms and compositions, using both analog and digital processes.
Dan grew up in Ohio and studied graphic design at CCA in San Francisco. In 2007 Dan co-founded Dress Code, a production company, with his friend Andre Andreev.
