Lido Pimienta (b.1986) is a Toronto-based Colombian-born interdisciplinary artist-curator and musician. She has performed, exhibited, and curated around the world since 2002. Her work explores the politics of gender, race, motherhood, identity and the construct of the Canadian landscape in the Latin American Diaspora and vernacular.

Zara Diniz is a Toronto-based artist recognized for her work as a tropical style painter and international muralist. Ever since a young age Zara has been fascinated with the physical properties of paint, the timeliness of the painting process, and her ability to manipulate both in her quest to reproduce the familiar and the recognizable within a painterly matrix. She is the owner of Maluca Studios founded in 2007; a company that offers artistic services and creates murals. She believes that public art can create a positive climate that is empowering and celebrates diversity within the community. Her work is deeply influenced by her travels around the world, which have introduced her to new environments and ways of living. These visits have invariably provided her with a robust memory-collection of individuals, scenes, colours, and patterns, which she incorporates ever-so-subtly into her paintings. Indeed, by playing with space and perception, through a combination of classical realism and painterly expressionism, Zara’s works often have a fleeting, surrealist quality, as figures emerge from and simultaneously fade into their painterly surroundings. She hopes to bring back an appreciation for the beauty of form and colour, and their fundamental role in the reproduction and recreation of emotional and experiential associations in the mind.
