Curly illustrations by Gabriel Moreno

Madrid illustrator, Gabriel Moreno has a way with lines. His line-work nearly dominates his drawings, creating luscious pathways and texture.

Often incorporated into his images as long locks of hair, the repeating lines create form through pattern. In a recent interview, Moreno states that he is inspired by “the ability of drawing to multiply that beyond reality.” In his work, this idea of extended reality is often framed around a face or a human figure which anchors the image as a focal point.

Itay Ohaly etches onto black walls to reveal colored memories

Ohaly explores this technique in two spaces, creating two diverse experiences. the first space, painted in all-black, invites the museum visitors to participate and etch on it freely. Adults and children alike are asked to scratch the walls. Revealing the vibrant color beneath.

The second space is the artist’s own interpretation, autonomously planned and carefully etched using a CNC machine. The project binds together a playful, analog world with a professional, adult one, while stretching the boundaries of the color etching technique with the use of digital technologies.

One mans junk really is another mans treasure

Dave Pollot spends his time injecting life back into the unwanted paintings that he finds in charity shops and at garage sales, blending modern elements into discarded portraits and landscapes. He came up with the idea when he and his girlfriend, she, were joking about putting humorous objects into paintings, as they rummaged through the disused works at their local charity shop. One day, his girlfriend returned home with a print, which she asked Dave to modify. He added a monster peaking over one of the buildings that featured, which they were then able to sell at a local show.
