“DAZZLED” casually creates a visual thread that unify the artists under a generic theme of a specific Neo Pop, contemporary and whimsical dimension, but it mainly focuses on the singularity that defines each artist style, pointing out the overpowered optical effects and the viewer’s astonishment.

Gao Hang depicts ironically, up to date and controversial topics, mastering a combination of air and regular brushes technique  that allows him to blur out faces and outlines, without losing the attention to details; Kenz creates imaginary bittersweet characters, inspired by comics and animations, that are brought to life by an extremely vibrant color palette and a sophisticated kinetic outline job that provides dynamism; Adam Lister represents iconic and recognizable symbols of cultural society, belonging to different time periods, through a timeless approach that digitalize everything with an 8bit pixelated procedure and nostalgic faded pastel colors; Kentaro Okawara conceives playful and bizarre figures, influenced by warm childhood stories and memories and the willing to connect people, executed with an airbrush- spray-paint technique that takes out every volume and perspective melting the subjects to the background and throwing them into a perpetual dimension.
