Desire Obtain Cherish 強納森・保羅
(American, b. 1975）
Desire Obtain Cherish (D.O.C.), a.k.a. Jonathon Paul, is a Los Angeles, USA based artist whose works have attracted an audience worldwide. From early roots in L.A.’s street art scene, his repertoire has grown to encompass major international exhibitions such as the renowned Venice Biennale art festival in 2015. New York’s famous Saks Fifth Avenue in 2016 invited D.O.C. and his iconic Meltdown installations to take part in an art and fashion collaboration.

(British, b. 1962）
Nick Veasey uses x-ray to strip back the layers and show what it is like under the surface. The technique reveals what, and often how, things are made, which grants his art to penetrate the surface and take us on a journey into a world otherwise hidden and unseen. The artist’s work could be seen as a project that harnesses and exploits modern technology to advance the boundaries of perception and of art. By revealing the unseen details of the interior structure, material and construction, as described by London’s Victoria & Albert Museum, Veasey creates art that is redolent of a ‘forensic investigation’, which makes his work a classic example of the fusion between art and science. Nick Veasey has been exhibited internationally. His works are now in collections at V&A Museum, SFMOMA, The Museum at FIT, BMW Museum, National Science and Media Museum, Musée de Design et D’Arts Appliqués Contemporains and MOCA Taipei. He keeps broadening the possibility of his art with diverse collaboration, including projects with V&A Museum, Louis Vuitton, United Airline and Adobe.
Jonathan Rosen. 強納森・羅森
Jonathan Rosen畢業於VCU Brandcenter 廣告學系，過去於廣告界擔任創意總監的經歷使他深切地感受到文字、影像和宣傳對人們產生的影響力。現為全職藝術家的他，以概念性的拼貼與挪用藝術手法創造出夢想來揭開每個人深埋心中的渴望。以「I WANT」為主題的系列為Rosen由個人的收集品出發創作，運用大量收集的現成物拼貼與鏤空的現代感字體展現視覺衝擊，將「I WANT」作為可以隨人們慾望不斷擴張的題材，藉由作品呈現脆弱卻真實的自白，為觀者提供一個隱蔽的空間，反思自身渴求，他所收藏的不僅是物品，更是不敢與人分享的企盼。他相信這些慾望如果不被挖掘出來，它們絕不會有力量打破緘默。
Pascal Dombis 帕斯卡爾·多比斯
（French, b. 1965）

He graduated with a bachelor’s degree in engineering from Insa University in Lyon, France before settling on pursuing an artistic career.

(Czech Republic, b.1978）
Jan Kaláb was born in Czechoslovakia in 1978, during a time when urban art was not seen in the Eastern world. In the 1990s, when the country began to open itself up to Western influences, Kaláb became one of the pioneers of graffiti art. Since 2007, he has focused on the abstraction of form and colour in his studio work, and studied formally at the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague. For a decade the artist has explored this depth and motion with a vibrant chromatic energy, exhibiting in institutions throughout Europe, and North and South America. His geometric murals can also be seen in the streets of Prague, London or Bogota.
Christiane Grimm 克里斯蒂安．格琳
(German, b. 1957）
Christiane Grimm's artistic work is characterized by colors and their interrelationship. Her concept to from images is breaking through the formal stringency of abstract geometric art. In her latest pieces she is totally opening them and arranges them freely. Despite the diversity of shapes in her composition she accentuates the sensual aspect of colour. She is aiming at the process of seeing and on the movement of colours. In her objects she sets colour and form in such a way, that the one broken through the other, produces a calculated and at the same time vital image world.
Christiane Grimm's artistic work is characterized by colors and their interrelationship. Her concept to from images is breaking through the formal stringency of abstract geometric art. In her latest pieces she is totally opening them and arranges them freely. Despite the diversity of shapes in her composition she accentuates the sensual aspect of colour. She is aiming at the process of seeing and on the movement of colours. In her objects she sets colour and form in such a way, that the one broken through the other, produces a calculated and at the same time vital image world. They are poetic formations of light and floating surfaces- very rarely also achromatic. Through the use of reeded acrylic glass, Grimm achieves optical effects that are contrary to a clear spatial perception. Owing to the refraction of the color on the finely delineated ribbed glass, her work has a decidedly painterly character and seems to be less an assemblage of different materials. The artist creates the colors as simultaneous contrasts, which converge or diverge. Depending on the choice and composition of the colors, their relationship with each other is either more complementary or noncomplementary. The intuitively set colour tones appear to the viewer consonant or dissonant. The simultaneous interplay of the colors is in motion and aims at the attentive and active perception of the viewer. The reason why Grimm's pictures cannot be appreciated at a glance, is founded in the fact that light and how it is guided, is an essential part of her objects. She collages various materials such as specially colored papers and mirror surfaces, to include the ambient light in her conception. It is particularly fascinating to experience her objects in different light situations. Depending on the lighting, surfaces appear which were not noticed before; also areas, that were previously in the dark, flash up. Often certain color values are intensified so far that they appear to glow. The viewpoint plays an essential role for its perception. A step forward or backward, to the left or to the right can cause completely different or new visual impressions. With well-calculated artistic means Grimm achieves arrives, to give the static structure of her color compositions a stupendously real and virtual dynamic on different levels. The light transforms the states of the image and the perception alike. Christiane Grimm's subtle colored and non-colored picture objects often cause surprise. This generates curiosity to become acquainted with the individual piece of art closer and more intensely in all the ways it appears and the artist`s oeuvre in its various facets.
