Andy Thomas has developed an iconic visual language that is uniquely his own. Using a combination of digital technology and water colours, Thomas’ work is a symbolic representation of nature’s collision with technology. Inspired by the beauty of nature and extensive travel to some of the world’s most ancient rainforests, Thomas fuses together images of flora and fauna into evolved abstract forms. Intricately layered compositions of plants and animals make a strong statement of technology’s impact on planet earth and how advancements in society are affecting the natural systems of life.

Atomic Art by David Mankey
The mysterious and magical patterns of atoms
Atomic Art is inspired by the mysterious and magical patterns of atoms as seen through modern microscopes. These microscopic images are the inspiration for David’s hand drawn art which is then screen-printed by hand. At present, the art is based on Silicon and Iridium atoms.
David Mankey has been creating Atomic Art since 1988 and has held many successful exhibitions including a ground breaking multimedia driven show at the National Science and Technology Centre and at the Front Gallery.
Danipo are a happy crafter couple from Brazil that love play around and collect some gifts from nature to make crafts and jewellery. Their intention is to share with the world a little bit of the art made in South America.
Combining drawing and painting styles such as dot work and sacred geometry, I create fusions of geometric and psychedelic art to create vibrant canvases full of emotion and energy.

Mady is a Sydney based self-taught illustrator and artist, also graphic design junior. Born in Germany, she grew up spending many days walking and wandering through fields and pondering skies, as she does here wandering the Australian lands. Inspiration comes from anywhere. But mostly within.
Asking about her art, she says she likes colours and pretty things, feminine shapes, forms and expressive characters, hardly ever knowing exactly what will happen when a piece is started. Inspiration and the flow of the moment guide her to make and create and to see what will manifest.
Mady's art relates very much to her personal experiences, moods and thoughts, which makes every piece very individual and personal. While she is working with different mediums, it usually all starts with a pen and paper sketch. Then coloured markers, ink, acrylic or water colours as of late. She also likes mixing it up by creating line and dot art, bit by bit, putting together little stories in psychedelic dreamscapes to explore.

She is also an artist and a writer, who only wants that the two leggeds of this planet be not just in wholeness and harmony with each other, but also with the Pachamama (Mother Earth).
I am inspired by the natural world and spend as much time there as possible.
My artistic skills lie firmly in the digital realm where I push the boundaries of my imagination and seek to translate the underlying fabric of nature through the medium of electricity.
In short what you will see in my images is energy, transferred from the world at large, to the depths of my mind and back out through digital space.
They are coherent images capturing the inexpressible…
I’m Rob Mack, I’ve been doofing and painting for over 25 years… To me they’re both powerful sources of connection to the divine and both of them feed into me in ways no other part of my life really can.
I doof to gather inspiration, then translate that inspiration into my art, which I then take doofing with me to gather more inspiration. I’m so happy to have this opportunity to share both the dancefloor and my art with you all.
Zoe Rayne is a visionary artist from Sydney. The underlying vision of her art practice is that of unity, synchronicity and the connection of all things from the personal to the collective, which she portrays through the use of natural elements and sacred spiritual symbols that create a narrative of her dreams, visions, and childhood memories. She utilizes the archetype of the divine feminine to help convey a message of peace and connection to all life on earth and the cosmos. The human body becomes a microcosm for the macrocosm, moving beyond a mere portrait and becoming a powerful symbol for personal and collective growth. Zoe hopes to inspire people through her actions and art to remember their connection to all other beings and to break down humanity's illusion of separation.
