His photography has been exhibited internationally at museums and galleries, including the Musée de l’Elysée (Switzerland), the Torrance Art Museum (Los Angeles), Jen Bekman Gallery (New York, Hey Hot Shot ’05), Clamp Art (New York) and Forma (Milan).

2. Henrietta Harris

Since graduating in 2006 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Auckland University of Technology, Henrietta has steadily built up a name for herself as a solid New Zealand illustrator.

She has skilfully hand-drawn hands, faces, brains, glaciers and at least seven other Categories of Things, many of which have appeared on canvases in shows all over New Zealand, Australia, London and New York; some of which have appeared on her own successful line of hand-printed t-shirts; some of which have appeared on t-shirts made by other hands (namely those of Parinto and Barker’s Men’s Clothing); and some more of which emerge from the pages of fine print publications such as BITE, Metro and Sunday Magazines. She has a varied list of clients, including Flying Nun Records, Amnesty International, Four Paws Media and Vice Magazine.

Henrietta has developed the timeless style that can only be achieved by having occasionally dipped one’s paintbrush accidentally in one’s coffee, but also combines tradition with less hazardous digital methods, all of which has resulted in an extensive, mutable, and memorable body of work.

4. Jenni Sparks

Jenni on Jenni:
I'm an illustrator who also works with typography. My work takes a fairly graphic quality to it, however I like to use hand-drawn aspects to reflect the content that I am interested in. I am inspired by daytime television, trashy magazines, and humorous events that occur in day-to-day life.

10. Tilt - Panic Room

Tilt :
The hotel Au vieux panier asked me to design a room, I first told them that I wasn't interested doing just decoration in the room but I wanted
to create something that will look more like an installation. I thought about it also as a huge canvas where I needed to think about the composition
and play with the empty white part of the room to accentuate more the idea of Chaos on the other part. Then I asked my friend Tober who gat a great
old school style for tags, Grizz who is also the man behind the camera and Don Cho who is a Hip Hop singer from Marseille but who used to be
a tagger from my home town Toulouse. It took one week to do the whole thing cause the idea was to exaggerate what you can usually see in some
abandoned places. Too much tags, too much drips, too much sentences, too much throw ups ... What I also wanted to show is that people can appreciate
any type of graffiti, even the more basic, it's just a matter of point of view ...
