Kouki Tsuritani (Japan):
Kouki Tsuritani is a printmaker born in Tokyo, Japan in 1967. He combines the philosophy of traditional Japanese art (such as Ukiyoe, which means "Floating world") with traditional European printmaking to produce black and white mezzotints, photogravures and wood engravings.
"I like the rich harmony of monochrome and think it the most sympathetic for expressing the depths of our emotions and for reflecting the inner views of people who live in a "floating" modern world. I hope that viewers of my works find them intriguing and are provoked to feel something of their lost memories."
He has trained in painting and printmaking at Kanazawa College of Art, Japan, and exhibited extensively throughout Japan and in international exhibitions.
Renée Chevalier (Canada):
Born in Cap-Chat in the Gaspé Peninsula, Quebec, Canada, Renée Chevalier holds a master's degree in fine arts (painting), under the direction of the late Pierre Ayot, from the Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM). She has had several solo and group exhibitions.

Chevalier's visual research is multiform; her work is hybrid, as she explores
Digital print, drawing, painting, installation, and photography. She lives in
