Alberto Seveso is an illustrator and digital artist from Sardinia, a beautiful island in the Mediterranean sea south of Italy. His love of graphic design started with skate decks and music cover album art for metal bands. He wanted to know how to reproduce such artworks and started exploring on his own, playing with colors and textures. He also introduced high speed photography into his designs.
“I had a computer in my home as early as the Commodore Vic20 and I knew it could be useful in some way. I mean I can use my computer to make art and not only to play.”
Alberto is completely self-taught. “I did it to just have fun. I did not expect it to become a profession. I am very interested in people’s faces and expressions. In a way, I give them a new face. I start with black and then add vector elements. In a way, the face sort of creates itself.”
Alberto now lives in Bristol, UK working as a freelance artist. His clients have included Adobe, Nike, ESPN, Sony and many individual musicians and bands.
At 23 years of age, Ásgeir has released 2 albums and led 2 global tours. His debut album Dýrð í dauðaþögn (2012) at the age of 21 was Iceland’s biggest selling debut album by a domestic artist, winning 4 Icelandic Music Awards and nominated for the prestigious Nordic Music Prize.
Born on 1 July 1992 and raised in Laugarbakki, a small town in northern Iceland, Ásgeir has traveled to major cities performing in front of large audiences worldwide. He is currently on tour in the United States and Europe. In the Silence (2013) is available in iTunes and at www.asgeirmusic.com.

"I’m not simply manufacturing art for you. My art is inquiry into the nature of existence. It’s the journey of an artist that creates photos which speak, ceramics that inspire, or woodworks that breathe- these are never the product of contrivance or artifice. I wander because there is much to see and I gather because there is so much given. I open myself to the possibility of the world rather than chase an image of mastery. I don’t need to be the best, or the most recognized, but if my study inspires you, reminds you of a place in time, or leads you to re-imagine the world we live in, then I’m grateful to have you join me."

Machine Dreams (Maschinenträume) by SA-PO
SA-PO is the artist team of Sven Sauer and Igor Prosavec.
In this series, Sven and Igor demonstrate the contrast between the speed of ultra-connected technology in urban megacities such as Tokyo, Shanghai or New York with the loneliness of the individual. At a time where civilization is obsessed with reality, a mega robot wanders through the city searching for identity and intimacy.
