Daniel Egnéus is a self-taught artist, who has created award-winning work for clients such as Haagen-Dasz, BMW, Nike, Swarovski, Penguin Books, and Audi. Recently, he published a gothic interpretation of ‘Little Red Riding Hood’ for Harper Collins, based on the classic Brothers Grimm fairytale.
Born in Sweden, Daniel has lived in Prague, London, Berlin, Bologna, and Rome. He now resides in Milan, where he works in a seventeenth-century studio on a canal, designed by Leonardo da Vinci. Finding inspiration in [what is clearly] a rich life experience, he masterfully juxtaposes loose swashes of color with intricate line work, to create effortlessly bewitching and elegant images.
Yeji Yun is a freelance illustrator and an artist, based in London and Seoul.
“All of my collages are composed by hand — cut from books I’ve been collecting for years, and painstakingly pieced together as seamlessly as possible. They create themselves through a process beginning with a loose concept, followed by a series of trials and errors, subtle maneuvers, selection/elimination, harmonious unions, and happy accidents. It is a meditative process, and there is a lot of decision-making behind each element involved.
My general intent, throughout all my work, is to portray the world as a flawed thing of beauty — a place that shines brightly, but has a dark side to match.”
Toiletpaper Magazine is a new collaboration between artist Maurizio Cattelan and photographer Pierpaolo Ferrari, both of whom live and work between Milan and New York City. It is a “new generation magazine that combines commercial photography, twisted narratives and surrealistic imaginary to create a series of powerful visual tableaux”.

Cedric “Honet”, born in 1972, lives and works in Paris, France. When he’s not working for Prada or showing his paintings in the Speerstra Gallery, he practices graffiti as an act with “symbolic” nature, a day to day action. He joins a gothic illustration style, inspired mostly by his life, with a romantic exploration of abandoned, forgotten and hidden places.
Madame Peripetie explores the boundaries between fashion, sculpture and the human body, experimenting with various fabrics and patterns; whilst infusing high-fashion elements with abstract and conceptual ideas, creating an eccentric escapade of color and texture. In her work she is focusing mainly on the interaction between body, language and new media. Her inspirations include surrealism, dadaism as well as the new wave era of the 80s, British post punk scene and the avantgarde theater of Robert Wilson.
