Felipe Pantone travels today around decorating large murals, instalations and got solo exhibitions ongoing in all the corners of the world with his distinctive style based on data structure and glitches. And is therefore perfectly suited for the magic factory where the daily recycled thousands of old data parts that turn into future pattern and routine.
He will paint a wall almost 70meters long surrounding the area where the magic happens
Underneath you will find picture of walls in Oslo, Paris, Montreal, Long Beach and Atlanta. A couple exhibitions and a commercial job for Ford Racing on Ken Blocks car
"Felipe Pantone’s work is at the cutting edge of street art. Straddling conventional graffiti, typography and abstraction, his work fuses bold elements of graphic design with highly evolved geometric shapes to create an ultra-modern aesthetic which complements and reacts with the stark modernity of our cityscapes.
Drawing on our concerns of the digital age and the speed at which technology is developing, Pantone’s art is like looking several light years ahead into the future and discovering a new language in which to communicate."

Artist duo, Holland
“CREATØRS ØF CØNTEMPØRARY ART” Artistic Duo, Muralists and imagemakers. Both Telmo Pieper as well as Miel Krutzmann started working on their creative abilities from a very young age. But it wasn’t untill 2007 they met at the Willem de Kooning Academy. Telmo (25) at the time a talented young illustrator and designer, Miel (31) decorating walls for several years, practicing the art of graffiti. In that period they started working together on walls, and grew to the ambitious artistic duo they form today.
After the academy they moved to the Sober-Concept Store, where Sober-Industries (also academy-friends) just started their new studio and shop space. This is the spot where the company ‘TELMO MIEL’ became official in the beginning of October 2012.
Working together seamlessly, they both enjoy working in realistic styles. With loads of contrast in subjects. Technique and style have a high priority in the artwork of Telmo & Miel, true craftsmanship is what they want to produce. They work separately on ideas for murals and come together with the sketches to see if combinations can be made. The result is usually very surrealistic, with attention to detail. They always work on the same piece together and are able to switch places when ever wanted or needed.
As the collaboration progressed between TelmoMiel and all the other creatives anchored at the Sober Store, the overall creative platform was named Sober Collective. A team & family of creatives that can support each other in any way necessary. Everyone with their own set of skills, so endless conceptual combinations were made possible.

Gabreielle Dadgostar -Australian born videographer who has been working with Selina on projects across the world.
Shujah malik -Norwegian based photographer known for his landscape photos and high quality hyperlaps-movies.
Right before the imminent demolition of a massive warehouse in Brisbane, street artists Sofles (previously), Fintan Magee, Treas, and Quench had the opportunity to go wild. The four artists cover almost every inch of wall space with a seemingly unlimited amount of paint in this timelapse seen over 11 million times on youtube. By Selina Miles.
In August 2015, film director Selina Miles travelled with artist Guido van Helten to Akureyri - a town on the north coast of Iceland, to produce a very unique work. This 6-minute film documents their journey, and offers insight into the unique personality of one of Australia's most sought after street artists.
This video was made possible to an amazing group of people, who came together to help us celebrate and pay homage to the Collingwood and Fitzroy area of Melbourne. Our goal was to create one continuous drone shot, captured in one take. The amazing team from Swarm UAV pulled it off.

Eric Ness Christiansen
Born in Drammen, Norway in 1985 and has been painting graffiti-art since 1999.
All Eric's art is based on a strong urge for getting colors and design out in public, to make people remember that our surroundings should contain entertainment for everybody regardless of age, sex and interests. It gives the public the right to make their mark on society, and not just in society like humanity has been doing since the break of dawn.
Taking the artform to the public with nearly 5000m2 in the city center of Drammen covered in his distinct art, lead to Eric being the first graffiti artist to have a graffiti painting bought by the Drammen Museum, and now cooperates with serious firms as both Curator and artist.
Eric is now active as leader of the "ugangprosjektet" in Norway.
