Agrume is an artist from Lyon born in France in 1993.
He began his practice with illustration and very quickly discovered multiple horizons.
Art in an urban setting is then a way to develop your work on paper, and thus, to confront it and connect it to an audience. Cities and their atmospheres, colours and architecture are so many starting points giving rise to a number of ephemeral stories.
Urban practice places his work more in reality and links him to society.
Self-taught, Agrume paints, draws, engraves, sticks and writes. An artistic practice that he conceives in its multidisciplinarity.

Austrian and French street artists Jana & Js are painting together since 2006.
The pair create polychromed stencil murals widely ranging in size. Based primarily on their personal photographic work, the stencils seem to respond and interact with their surroundings. Mostly inspired by the city and people living in, their paintings merge urban landscape or architecture details with portrait, questioning the place of human being in the modern cities. Inspired by the place where they put their work they now focus on nostalgie, melancholy. After spending some time in Madrid, Spain where they met and living a couple of years in Paris, Jana & Js are now settled in Salzburg - Austria.

Marko93 is a French artist born in 1971 in Le Mans, France.
In 1988, in Saint-Denis, Marko and his gang were immersed in hip-hop culture from across the Atlantic. They try rap, dance, DJing, and for Marko, it is graffiti that wins, fascinated by "the colourful graffiti that tattoos the walls of big cities".
First very inspired by New York graffiti and torchlight tags, Marko slipped into calligraphy when he discovered Hassan Massoudy's works.
We are at the beginning of the 90s, and Marko cuts his caps with a cutter to play with solids and deliques, to imagine abstract lettering at the crossroads of Arabic calligraphy and graffiti, becoming, without knowing it, one of the pioneers of European calligraffiti.
