The Italian artist Dario Tironi is extremely multifaceted. All his sculptures, photographs, installations, and graphics are equally interesting and distinctive. The figures of people and dogs, made from improvised material and even garbage, caused the greatest resonance. He uses plastic bottles, lego toys, audio cassettes, and tablet packs.
In his works, he tries to answer the question: How is the world of consumption connected with the world of nature?

The Englishwoman Carolyn Rothwell lives simultaneously in London and Sydney. She is inspired by the nature of the southern continent greatly.
