The artist uses a character in her works who is fully integrated into these backgrounds and architectural objects. Dorothy Circus Gallery once offered this on the character: “Koralie fancies mixing elements of different origins and has achieved to create a harmony out this association. About the evolution of her work, she says: ‘My character has become a pretext. Standing straight and always bearing the same expression on her face, I’m not interested in her as a person but in the way I’m going to arrange her hair, her costumes and the background. I have great fun in dressing and combing her, as if she was a doll.’”

Koralie began in the field of architecture, before moving on to television sets in advertising. In the early 2000s, she embarked on her career in art. Her Instagram account offers in-process shots that show how each of these intricate works are constructed.

Barcelona based multi-disciplinary artist Suso33 is constantly seeking different ways to express himself. His explorations have taken him from beginnings in the graffiti scene, to painting and performing arts, and he has become one of Spain's most established live-painters. When he paints murals, he doesn't think in terms of labels, whether it be "street art" or "graffiti". To him, what's most important is the communication of an idea, and his come in many forms and visual styles. His most recent mural in Bilbao, Spain borders on the surreal and supernatural.
