Xué GilPhotographer & video-maker Donostia / San Sebastián

When he first met surfing 8 years ago, his world and perception of life changed completely to the point that his life moves now mainly around this single sport. Few years later, when photography came to his life, he decided to quit his job in Barcelona and dedicate his life to photography and videography.
Influenced not only by the surf culture, but also skateboarding and contemporary art, his photography tries to bring new perspectives and feelings about the surf culture and all what he lives during his travels.@xuegil
YOANN FOURNIERGraphic and art designer Biarritz
Yoann Fournier is a 29 years old artist based in Biarritz. He is a Graphic and art designer mainly in the skateboarding and surfing industry.
Immersed in the punk scene and music garage, in skateboarding and surfing since his youngest age, turning into this artistic scene was a natural evidence for him.
Apart from his numerous projects for various clients, he has kept on creating his own visual and graphic identity, which has eventually given birth to Kill your Ido, his signature work. His collages on paper made under this name successfully marry sad reality and utopia to sensually reflect his vision of the absurdity of this world. He draws his inspiration from various artists as well as a psychedelic, grunge and authentic culture. His motto is : no rules of perspective or proportions, he tears, cuts, glues and draws without any imposed constraints.
However, we detect a constant and conductive line: to have a vanishing point architecturallly speaking in order to plunge into a psychedelic unreal delirium, which therefore delivers a kind of loophole by revealing the erotic and colorful images of his feelings of the moment.@yoannfournier
