CHIARA LETO Chiara was born and raised in Rome, daughter of an English artist and an Italian Civil Engineer. Following high school she completed a BA in Fashion and Textile Design and worked in the industry for two years, after a further two years living and working in Australia she returned to Europe and in 2012 began an MA in Visual Communication and Illustration. She has been living in London for the last 2 years, working in illustration, design and printmaking. The work you will see on Gala Night is mostly screen printed, a technique that lends itself very well for her kind of work, allowing to overlay strong and bold colours whilst creating unexpected combinations. Her inspiration comes always from her surroundings, nature being always the biggest influence. She dreams of a world reclaimed by trees and climbing plants.

MARTINS BAUMANIS Mārtiņš Baumanis is a sound explorer, currently pursuing a MMus in Leadership at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. He uses his voice, electronics, the piano and anything in between to create meaningful sounds, both as a composer and a performer. Originally from Latvia, he maintains an important connection to the ever singing and musically prodigious Baltic country. Sound for him is a way to break barriers, to shoot right through the inhibitions and reservations of people. Sound can avoid all the rituals of human interaction and get straight to the point, straight to one's inner being, and in this elusive ether work very efficiently to perform social actions and bring people closer to each other.

MAXIM NILOV Maxim Nilov studied painting, conceptual art and photography at Central St. Martins.  “I believe that Photography is its own language, made up of regional as well as individual dialects.
