Aks is the final Hero from our three first year grant winners and we’re excited to catch up with her to take a closer look at what inspires her and the process behind her work.

Hate In-Situ by David Mrugala wins Fresh 19's Art Best in Book prize. Exploring unique patterns of hate and anger through vocal expressions and generative design. Recorded during the Hate Festival in Korea, each audiovisual is an isolated circular artifact of hate and critical to the interpretation and, consequently, of the culture and the experiences of the people that formed it. The series is in progress and based on discussions regarding the definition, expression and aesthetics of emotions though audiovisuals. The visuals are made with code (Processing).
A self-initiated series of coloured pencil portraits. Adding a surreal twist to a very realistic drawing to make it much more engaging and unusual. These red figures almost become beautiful, alien creatures rather than everyday humans you’d meet on the street.
Lithuanian-born, Berlin-based Aiste Stancikaite often pairs precise pencil drawings with abstract uses of both digital and traditional mediums, to create images with a focus on detail and texture. For her impressive work she was awarded a Gold in Illustration and a Best in Book mention at this year’s Fresh Future showcase.

John Robert Brown
John Robert Brown on his Photography Best in Book Entry 'In the Middle of Chandi Chowk Road’: An ongoing project documenting people passing time on the concrete blockade that separates the dual carriageway that is Chandi Chowk Road, the main thoroughfare that runs through Old Delhi, India.
Old Delhi market surrounds this road with an abundance of tiny streets leading off it, always busy and bustling with life. The blockade / island, even though in some way is just as intense, has become a sanctuary to these people as a moment of calm in the storm. Capturing a moment of stillness is no easy task and John Robert Brown has succeeded in doing that.
Boris directs the Fresh 19 Motion & 3D Best in Book entry spot for Roma Europa, the leading festival bringing dance, theater and music together. Made using more than 750 drawings, Boris delivers a fantastic piece of work which combines animation, graphic design, and flowing storytelling.
Last Words: A haunting, emotive and funny short film by Mike Fisher.

A must watch, catch the Film Best in Book entry.
