Helena Maratheftis is a London-based professional doodler who is obsessed with saturated colour and in-your-face patterns. Her work spans the fields of illustration, graphic design, hand-drawn type and cheeky humour.
Stephen Knapp believes in the power of pure color and light. Though he describes his art as “light painting”, these brilliant light installations were created without any actual paint whatsoever.
