Jaanus Samma (b.1982) is a visual artist from Estonia. His body of work includes photos, installations, and videos with topics that have been grounded in the study of urban space and the subjective experiences of it. Over the years his interests have moved towards gender studies investigating into the representation of male sexuality and ways of portraying this by artistic means.

Nina Vynnyk’s (1928–2011) works can be boldly placed among the Ukrainian naïve art’s greats. Having moved to Estonia from her homeland at the age of 70 to live with her eldest son, Vynnyk took advantage of the Ukrainian Cultural Centre to begin creating unique narrative pictures in appliqué medium from textile scraps such as pieces of wool and cotton cloth, lace, fur, feathers and braids (all sorts of stuff found around the house).
