Born in Cádiz, Ana Sánchez graduated in Fashion Design in the School of Applied Arts, Cádiz, and Industrial Design Pattern in Barcelona. Over the course of the last years Ana, always on a quest toward the latest impulses, felt compelled to experiment with new projects in the fashion and art world. She created and became the director of the SOUTH 36-32N THE NEW FASHION LATITUDE, a fashion festival that also incorporates international modern art tendencies. The festival features a more experimental approach to the emerging avant-garde fashion and a more open-minded commercial vision of the actual market of young Spanish fashion designers. These factors majorly influence the style of Ana´s recent collections which are slightly more risky yet equitable whilst respecting the calls of the recent fashion market.
I chose to represent, speak of those images that move me and I will continue. Continuing the discovery of light reveals things and desires... I like beaches, fresh fruit and people dancing in Casamance. It’s great when I can catch the light and beauty of the Caribbean, Africa and Menorca in a painting. Everything you see and experience does my imagination. That’s why I like traveling and painting wherever I go, because I believe everything I see or experience is interesting enough to talk, and my tongue, I know now, is the color.
Self-taught artist born in Tossa (Girona), in 1945. His career as a painter started in 1967, by participating in competitions and showcasing his work in various Spanish cities. In 1976 he enrolls in an engraving course in Paris, where he lives for 2 years. In 1980, he travels to Carrara and starts sculpting in marble. In 2004, he incoporates the methacrylate as one of his main materials, which he considers to be very suitable for capturing his new ideas. For the past 2 years, he has been working with the theme of "freedom" (both physical and spiritual) in mind.

Entering Isidoro Hernández's jewellery shop is similar to entering a world full of color, creativity and design; every single piece is carefully studied, designed and created with special materials. Like a Renaissance artist, he does not only look for the intrinsic values the gems, but he explores their beauty, color, size, type and uniqueness, and blends them together in beautiful designs. Isidoro creates all his pieces from scratch - he conceives the jewel, does the sketches, searches the materials and carves the gems.
There is a kind of glass which only responds to the manipulation made by sensitive hands of a tranquil beauty, to the authentic emotion that comes from hidden universes, to the knowledge of a technique that opens paths, to the desire to explode in bubbles and buttons of happiness that wake up as gems in the body. A kind of glass that adapts to the necessities of an open project.
