Wasted Rita (1988) is a Portuguese graphic designer and illustrator who has been amassing a huge following since starting her blog “Rita Bored” in 2011. The self-styled “natural born agent provocateur” likes to think and write and draw and pour forth little gems of sarcastic wisdom dipped in acid, reflecting an unconventional upbringing in a Catholic school to the sound of Black Flag. Her angst-ridden poetic invectives on life and human behaviour have found their way into magazines, books, exhibitions and art commissions in a growing number of countries.

Catarina Glam is a Portuguese urban artist whose work started at the beginning of the year 2000, when her passion for colours and shapes took over her life and she began focusing on graffiti and painting murals. From that moment on, all the conditions were created for her to develop work in other platforms and mediums. The transition from graffiti to multi-dimensional works on paper and wood was inevitable. Since then she has been creating design pieces and characters for several brands, various art exhibitions and international festivals. Her universe is vast, her mind is racing, and is an organised chaos, but everything she creates is done in a careful and attentive way down to the smallest detail.
