The human impulse to create art is universal. As cultural documents, works of art bring important insights into past and existing cultures, helping us to understand how the world become as it is today. There is an awareness of the melding of diverse cultural influences where we share the universal identity of explorers in this boundless voyage.

Carlos Garcia de la Nuez
B. 1959 in Havana, Cuba
Have been exhibited in various museums including New York, Miami, Buenos Aires, São Paulo, Mexico City, Paris, Berlin, London, Madrid, Moscow and Havana, Carlos Garcia de la Nuez is member of one of the key Cuban visual artist groups of the period, "4 x 4". He conceptualizes the presence of geography of courses and paths as those experiences transcendental and significant to one's journey, underlining where one is at and heading towards. The abstraction, symbolism and visual representation are of a different world, of another world. His imagination legitimizes the excellence and transcendence of history through such aesthetic discourse
Eddi Prabandono (Indonesia)
B. 1964 in Pati, Central Java, Indonesia
Eddi Prabandono as one of the country’s leading practitioners has attended various residency programs and exhibitions in Japan, USA, Italy and Netherlands. His multi-looped vespa installation “After Party #3” was highlighted at Venice Biennale 2015. Recently he was invited to Netherlands for a site-specific public art piece and commissioned a large-scale installation at Jakarta International Airport terminal 3. Eddi has a love for the eccentric and absurd. Inspired by transportation and change Eddi’s works continually discuss the mobility in life. While Eddi has often shown his knack for reconciling extremes and contradictions, the heart and soul of his art is very much human, in contrast to the mechanical contraptions and vehicles that form much of his work.
