The Viennese fine artist Julia Faber comments in her work on the technical evolution of the human body. She describes the vacillation between alleged necessity, perfection and dependence on these technical enhancements. Through their creative negation of the natural real devices and historical and centemporary inventions drift off into a surrealistic image. Julia Faber interprets technology a spacer to the human body.
Rudolf Fitz aka. grundieweiss_vienna, born 1989 in Vienna, is artist and graphic designer. He started with graffiti about 12 years ago, his interest in art grows more and more, since a few years he is doing his art also on canvas. In the beginning he followed an abstract, expressive style, but it developed to a clear, figurative style on the one hand and on the other hand, into a straight, colorful and geometric style for the other part of his artwork. The main part of his art refers on the classical charme of vienna, most of it is fictitious. He prefers using oil color for his paintings.
Ben Reyer is a collage artist who subverts popular imagery to create fantastical combinations. In his slice and dice technique he uses vintage posters, books, magazines, and other printed matter. Always made by hand, his collages are pieces of history, made for the future, critiquing the now. The artist, born in 1985 in Vienna, Austria, grew up in Los Angeles. He earned his Bachelor of Geography Degree at UCLA in 2008, traveled the world, and now lives and works in Vienna.
