Meet the Artists
Stephanie Avery is a Toronto-based multi-disciplinary artist with a degree in visual art from York University. With an emphasis on interactivity and empowerment, Stephanie’s practice intervenes with familiar spaces, objects and imagery to imbue her subjects with new meanings and narratives. Being especially interested in our collective relationships with the spaces we inhabit, Stephanie explores the world with an equal balance of joy, curiosity and skepticism: a balance she strives to represent in her practice. Her work is both playful and critical, and nothing she does is without a hint of mischief. Stephanie has exhibited widely within Toronto, notably at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Nuit Blanche and the Artist Project. She has painted murals locally and internationally, recently participating in the Hands Off The Wall mural festival in Munich, Germany and with Global Street Art in London, England.
Yuvia Maini is a Stockholm-based animator and visual artist working with immersive motion and public art. Her practice examines dichotomies and divisions through Augmented Reality, painting and animation.

In 2022, she painted and programmed the first permanent AR artwork in Sweden. She is the founder of the interactive animation studio BLOBB.TV and a member of the renowned art collective Misschiefs.
