Founded by sculpture/fashion graduate Jamie Raap and Henrik Mauler with a background in engineering/architecture, Zeitguised combines their common interest of digital surrealism in a world full of realities.

Surrealism, fantasy, magic, strange creatures and a beautiful doll-like character among all these with very distinct innocent facial features. There’s definitely much more in Nicoletta Ceccoli’s work to make you feel absorbed in a timeless and spaceless world she paints. I came across this brilliant Italian artist’s work through Bak Magazine and enthralled since.
Nicoletta Ceccoli, an award winning children’s book illustrator, has illustrated over 30 books since 1995 mainly with USA, UK , and Italian publishers. Her clients included among the others Random House, Simon and Shuster, Houghton Mifflin, Mondadori, and Grimm Press.
In 2001 she was awarded the Andersen prize ‘Baia Delle Favole’ as the best illustrator of the year in Italy. In 2006 she was awarded with a silver medal from the Society of Illustrators of New York. Nicoletta Ceccoli has exhibited her work in group and solos shows across Europe and North America.
Fantasy, dream, surrealism, to whatever it takes to escape reality. Casajordi has redefined reality based on his imagination. He enjoys ‘pictures’ and playing with their meanings, and with the duality in between illumination and darkness. I felt lost in his work like Alice in the Wonderland only to wish if I could understand French!
Based in Perpignan (France) near the Spanish border, Casajordi draws his ideas on paper before taking them into Photoshop to create collages – sometimes with over 300 layers spending 15/16 hours on each piece. From overall composition to minute details, you can sense strong narrative expressions as well as unexplained references in his work.
