Yin Jun

' Yin Jun powerfully expresses the emotions of the increasingly demanding and materialistic society of which we are all a part. The oppressed and weak cry and shout through captivating childish faces, letting others know about their dreams, frustrations and hopes as they release their inner feelings. At first, onlookers cannot help but smile as they look at the comical, yet satirical caricatures, but soon the realization of their deeper meaning becomes apparent.

Troy Moth

Troy Moth was born in a remote tree-planting camp on the west coast of Canada and spent the first few years of life in a tent guarded by large dogs. He loved the wild and abundant nature he grew up immersed in, but eventually the call to adventure became too much and he moved, first across Canada to the big city (Toronto), then across the world to India, to pursue a career in photography. Troy has worked for numerous commercial and editorial clients, including Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, Rolling Stone, GQ and many others. But he's never forgotten his roots, so with a career in fashion now behind him, he's focusing instead on his art, and living, once again, deep in a forest on the west coast of Canada.

Tomáš Gabzdil Libertiny

' During Design Miami/Basel 2010 last month, Dutch designer Tomáš Gabzdil Libertiny built a glass vitrine and suspended this martyred figure in the middle. 40,000 worker bees were then released over the course of the event so that a wax honeycomb structure was created over the figure. The red pigment color comes from the fact that Libertiny tinted the entire honeycomb structure red. Representing flesh and blood, the work comes to signify "the toil of everyday duty...masked by the hope of eternal rest in an after-life promised by the believer." ' (via Designboom)
