Alice Pasquini is a visual artist from Rome who works as an illustrator, set designer, and painter. Alice’s preferred canvases are city walls and she’s traveled widely in the past few years to bring her artwork to life on the streets of different cities across the globe. Growing up in the culture of ’90s hip-hop, she was struck by the heroine of a comic named Sprayliz, which centered around a girl who created politically themed graffiti, and using this inspiration she began moving toward the world of street art. Through her art she strives to demonstrate the small moments between people and their connections to one another. She wishes to represent human emotion and explore these emotions from a different point of view. Alice is particularly interested in the representation of women in art and the desire to show strong, independent women in a way that differs from the highly sexualized image of femininity that is typically seen in society.
Born in 1980, Alice graduated from Rome’s Academy of Fine Arts and then lived and worked in Great Britain, France, and Spain. While in Madrid she completed coursework in animation at the well-respected Ars animación school and, in 2004, obtained an MA in critical art studies at the Universidad Computense. She then worked with the Spanish department store El Corte Inglés as a set designer for Cortylandia. Here she was able to use her design skills to design amusement parks for children. Alice has also worked with international clients (Nike, Range Rover, Toyota, Microsoft, Gazzetta dello Sport) on PR campaigns and has collaborated in a wide range of design projects, both as a graphic designer and illustrator. Some of these projects include work with the design magazine Experimenta, Il Venerdì della Repubblica, and as the art director of the satirical magazine Greenager.

Ever (Nicolás Romero) is a former graffiti writer who began painting in the streets of Buenos Aires in the 1990’s. From the beginning, he was inspired by the street’s potential for projecting concepts and colour into the daily lives of thousands of passers-by.
Though he began as an artist practising letter-based graffiti, Ever’s style developed over time and moved into the realm of murals and street art. As he moved further away from graffiti, he began to explore different subjects such as portraits of ex-lovers, his brother and anonymous faces. He also experimented with more conceptually motivated pieces; such as giant portraits of chihuahuas, meant to refer to materialistic cultural tendencies. More here
