Yoshimasa Tsuchiya was born in 1977 and specialised in sculpture at Tokyo University of the Arts, and completed PhD, Sculpture Conservation at its graduate school in 2007. He was exposed to numerous old works there, and learnt that they had been created with remarkable boldness and novelty in each era. Based on this experience, he has continued to take on challenges with traditional techniques and innovative expression. In recent years, exhibitions have been held at Kumanokodo Nakahechi Museum of Art and Yokosuka Museum of Art with increasing popularity and reputation. 

Aof Smith, a Bangkok based artist, has cultivated a following among collectors and lowbrow artists in Thailand. Greatly influenced by American Pop-Surrealism, Aof Smith maintains the dream-scape of the surrealists and the celebration of the world often associated with pop art. Having developed his own style, Aof Smith personal sense of colours brings forward vivid and full-flavoured visuals that add dimensions and volume to the layers of characters in his works.

Mrs. Zukie is a contemporary artist & Muralist from NYC and the creator and designer of the Zukie character. Mrs. Zukie attended C.W Post University and received her BFA. Mrs. Zukie has participated in art shows and charity events worldwide. She also travels to events like NYCC and Dcon to show case her work and to meet the fan base. Mrs. Zukie started drawing at the age of 5 and since then never put down her pencil. Her goal is to spread Zukie's love all around the world!

Aya Cagiu graduated from Tama Art University with a degree in sculpture in 2001, and has created and exhibited embroidery works ever since. In recent years she has established herself as an artist, exhibiting the works at Takamatsu Art Museum and Yokosuka Museum of Art. She has been searching for unique ways of expressing embroidery, which is often seen as a craft, but can possibly be art as well. The works are based on the sensibility and imagination nurtured by her relationship with nature, in a chaotic, materially and informationally saturated society today. 

Kengo Nakamura studied Japanese painting at Tama Art University and has created unique paintings using motifs that represent contemporary society, such as emoticons in emails, floor plans of one-room flats, cartoon balloons and character silhouettes. In addition to collaborating with creators from other genres, he has organised exhibitions and symposia, and is one of the leading artists of our time. In recent years, his reputation has grown significantly overseas, as he holds solo exhibitions and exhibits his works in museums.

Fukuo Tanaka, who creates works using heat-resistant glass with high transparency called borosilicate glass, studied at an art school. He has pursued the characteristics of borosilicate glass and freely created pretty and delicate works with the distinctive technique. The works are reminiscent of natural and universal beauty that exists in the world according to certain rules without human hands.

Saki, at the age of 16, went to the US to pursue her art education, and is currently enrolled at the Rhode Island School of Design. She specialises in coloured pencils, which she painstakingly applies to her work in order to imprint her own messages on it. Her work often features young girls and is characterised by a unique view, interweaving imaginary worlds and integrating them with everyday scenes. Fairy tales and myths are the subject of many of her works, in which the protagonists are beautifully transformed without being bound by conventional fates of gender, race or status.
