William Reed (born 1991) is currently in his final year of the bachelor's program in free art at Konstfack. He recently came from two exhibitions “Like Literally” at Eldhunden and “Cult of Sin” at Lilla Baren, Riche and participates in the spring exhibition at Konstnärshuset on 29/5 - 6/6. Despite claims about the death of painting in the background of new technology, his interest lies in a visual narrative that represents a colorful and poetic visualization of the present in all its gloomy but magical reality. In his artistic practice, he works explosively with painting where mythological and contemporary concepts as well as motifs meet and are sometimes put together with finished objects to create a new context. A fictional scene where the painting plays the main role as an immortal warrior or celebrity, which requires the audience's attention and respect.
William has chosen to support ”Regnbågsfonden”. All of the profits are donated there.

"In my internship, I work in series. It is about re-managing the subject in a repetitive act to create a narrative. The story is my escapism. The feeling of being in a story makes me think away the present. My storytelling usually consists of personal memories, experiences and relationships that I think need to be told."
"In my ongoing project “Emancipation” I draw a series of homoeroticism. The series is partly about embodying my process of finding identity, but has also become an experiment with the thesis that teasing is an aesthetic. I investigate teasing in relation to withholding information with the aim of arousing fantasies about what is being withheld. The retention of information can be equated with a language. A language, an aesthetic consisting of the retention of information."

Cissi Efraimsson is a crossover artist, freely moving between various media and artistic expressions. Her films, paintings, animations, music, and drawings are strongly interconnected to one another.
Efraimsson is currently enrolled in the MFA program in Experimental Animation at the California Institute of the Arts. She received a BA in Fine Arts from the Royal Institute of Art in Stockholm in 2018.
Efraimsson works at the borderline between reality and the surreal/supernatural. She often uses a dream, myth, or creature and places it in the real world, within a contemporary context inspired by popular culture. Efraimsson is renowned for her ability to counterbalance the ordered and near-perfect with the warped and absurd. The atmosphere she creates is often a balance between the ugly and beautiful, and Efraimsson mines events and dialog from her own life – with a certain degree of twisting and turning. Recurring themes include fantasy, escapism, magic, and the subconscious, while humor and a playful energy course throughout everything Efraimsson creates.
Cissi has chosen to support ”Sea Shepherd”. All of the profits are donated there.
