Oscar Murillo, born in Colombia, 1986, is a painter and installation artist whose work incorporates a variety of different media and techniques, including text, recycled materials, and fragments collected from his studio. Murillo earned his BFA in 2007 from the University of Westminster in London, and completed his MFA in 2012 at the Royal College of Art. Murillo has had numerous solo and group exhibitions at museums and galleries around the world, including a 2014 show at The Mistake Room in Los Angeles. In 2013, the South London Gallery held the artist's first major solo exhibition in the UK. In 2012, he created new paintings during a five-week residency at the Rubell Family Collection in Miami, which were shown later that year as part of the artist's first solo exhibition in the United States. The artist lives in London.

Rodolfo Peraza, born in Cuba, 1980, a year associated with the birth of "new Cuban art," belongs to the generation of emerging artists concerned with the freedom of artistic expression. Interested in the questions of isolation and self-identity, his works address the connections of technology, geography and the individual. Using the internet, social media, and animation, Peraza creates a body of work that explores the moral, spiritual, and social modes of conduct governing society. The artist lives in Miami and Havana.
