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.

Hikari Shimoda plunged into the contemporary fine art world after completing her studies in illustration at the prestigious Kyoto Saga University of Arts in Japan. She has always created portraits of children as a concept. As quoted in the work, "God is dead" is the word of the philosopher Nietzsche. Denial of fiction, affirmation of emptiness. There is always anxiety about denying God and living in reality. The truth is to keep asking and staring at something. It is a painful and sad task that requires a great deal of energy. It conceptually depicts the image of the person facing them.

Karim Hamid was born in Los Angeles and is now based in Colorado. A single subject of his work is that the female body is idealized and consumed in classical art history and contemporary culture. “It is about the thing/person being observed,” he writes, “as well as the method of being observed.” In his paintings, the female figure, from a variety of sources, is usually distorted and exaggerated as a means of criticizing the superficial way women are presented in history and in the media. 

Satoru KOIZUMI completed his postgraduate studies in sculpture at Okinawa Prefectural University of Arts in 2009 and now lives and works in Okinawa, Japan. He is one of the artists who has received attention for exhibitions in Japan and abroad, and his official collaboration with Disney. He has harmonised faces and figures of various animals, from the ferocious to the vulnerable, living in their natural habitats, with those of humans living in society, to create a single life in sculpture. The seemingly lovable wood sculpture, carved with traditional techniques, and recent paintings reveal his deep reflection on the diversity of contemporary society. 

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.

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.
