Joelle Perry is a representational artist, who studied art under the atelier tradition of Charles H. Cecil Studios in Florence, Italy. She now aims in her career to become a contemporary sacred artist, her passion being Christian theology and prayer. Although she holds representational art as the truest or most beautiful form of art, she also uses other styles. These, she recognizes, can have the ability to convey deeper messages and ask deeper questions than representational art.

Singaporean contemporary artist Jahan Loh forayed into street art in the early '90s. Counterculture yet well ahead of times, Jahan is a visual artist whose roots are firmly entrenched in both fine and street art. Jahan paints, invades, reinvents and paradises modern culture and popular iconography with a barrage of imagery laden with socio-political undertones. Devoted to breaking the banal momentum and didactic approach to art and life, his works often overload the senses with collages of contextual riddles. Offering an alternative universe where nothing is sacred and everything else is subverted, he conceives theories through his neo-pop aesthetics and subliminal social narratives.
His works have been featured at art exhibitions internationally. Jahan was also one of eight Singapore contemporary artists selected for 8Q-RATE, the inaugural exhibition for the opening of Singapore's 8Q museum in 2008.
