Artem Over creates in the digital space, as well as on walls, canvases, and paper. He depicts mainly his own characters, trying to integrate the themes from his real life into his art stories: graffiti, hanging out with friends, fun and discipline, popular culture imagery, Chinese tea and Asian motifs.
The artist labels his artwork with the slogan “It's Over Again”. His growing-up experience and endeavour at self-improvement have had a direct effect on Artem’s approaches to life and creativity, so now he is convinced that the end is always the beginning of something new.

Vadim Sloof started in the early 2000s as a graffiti writer, specializing in character art. His visual language was formed based on the use of aerosols and rollers and transferred these materials and their imitation to canvases.
In his works, Vadim focuses on the figurative, where he gives more weight to the behavior and nature of the line than to the general picture form. He counts among his influences Egon Schiele, Anthony Lister, Aitor Troop, hardcore continuum, and casual culture of the 80s.

Ira is a part of Sketchar for over 3 years. She is engaged in creating content for the School section, as well as in training neural networks. When Ira take time out to draw for herself, she treats this process as meditation – so often defines her art subject, material, and technique to suit her mood. As a result, it may turn out both a "well-coiffed", neat digital picture and a quick mischievous sketch made with crayons.
