Using a variety art media — from painting and film to 3D murals and sculpture — the artists reflect on the impact of the stressful and monotonous every-day-life on human psychology, examine the social construct around ‘youth criminality’, communicate their social and environmental commentary and attempt to dissect the human psyche, social dilemma, and environmental problems brought by industrialization, information overflow, and technology of modernity. Fine arts co-locate with graffiti, hyperrealistic photography with futuristic sculpture, continuing the conversation about the future of our contemporary culture and street art.
