Maser is an artist originally from Ireland. As early as 1995 under the moniker
“Maser”, he began painting graffiti on the streets of Dublin, where he soon earned the respect of other graffiti artists in Ireland and throughout Europe for his unique abstracted style. After studying Visual Communication at Art School in his home city, he went on to establish himself as one of Ireland’s leading visual artist working in the urban environment.
His early work, such as “They Are Us” Project (2010) was strongly influenced by typography, letterforms and sign painting, but soon after 2010 his style gradually began to transition towards graphic representation and geometric abstraction. His works demonstrate unassuming techniques emphasizing simplicity of form.
His large scale mural work and his collaborations with artists such as musician Damien Dempsey, TED prize winner - JR, Conor Harrington, and Fintan Magee have won him notoriety not only in the graffiti world, but also have helped establish him in the contemporary art world.

Tamara Alves (b. 1983) is a Portuguese artist, native from the Algarve and currently based in Lisbon. Inspired by urban life she makes use of supports with multifaceted characteristics – from painting to illustration, from installation to urban art.
Tamara is fascinated by “contextual” art, which is inserted in the world, ignoring conventional places such as museums or galleries, in order to present her works of art in the street or in public spaces.
The work of Tamara Alves represents an erotic view of a contemporary body with the effects of its own limits expanded. Instead of a rational thinking there’s a rough passion, a body-without-organs, a becoming animal, the experienced sensations, “starving histerical naked” (Allen Ginsberg).
Since 2000 that she has been a part of several projects, group and solo exhibitions and street art interventions.
Meditations with Andy materialize the mystical interchange of two mixed media artists, in visual conversation, offering emblematic refractions of their own individual experiences and daring narratives. The work represents the commitment to champion impulse and honor the powerful, directing way of instinct demonstrated by the two internationally acclaimed artists in the mixed media form.
Bystedt’s and Raul’s artistic paths crossed one day in Los Angeles; Raul had been brought to Bystedt’s studio by Destiny, a mutual friend. Upon seeing Bystedt’s Gold Queen, Raul felt compelled to decorate her radiant self-portrait with his own signature calligraphic symbols. Delighted by his artistry and the authenticity of his individualized style, Bystedt became transfixed by this piece that had taken new form as a fundamentally collaborative work. The two were soon determined to once again co-create, yet with defining intent; that commitment, the mutual interest of their respective creative souls, takes its ultimate shape in this series of 75 unique, collectible mixed media pieces. Bystedt invited Raul to join her immaterial factory, her The Lost Warhols collective, and interpret her iconic portrait of Andy Warhol, photographed at the recently late but forever great Interview Magazine in late 1982, in his own artistic language, one defined by dashing color schemes and a seemingly linguistic yet non verbal category of imagery. His crafted company of impassioned symbols echoes his diverse travels and externalizes his own internal dynamic meditations on his global experiences.
