Aya received her MA in English Language and Literature in 2012. She likes dancing, traveling, cycling and spending time with her pets.

Millo is an Italian street artist, born Francesco Camillo Giorgino in 1979. He is known for his predominantly black and white large-scale murals. His artworks are characterized by child-like figures, simple monochromatic lines combined with a dash of color, and elements of architecture.

The architectural element in his works might be rooted in the fact that Millo was a student of architecture. He didn’t plan to became an artist, he just liked to paint. However, art became his profession.
