Kate Buffton I am a third year student at Salford University and I am a book artist, I transform old unwanted books into a new and innovative designs. I cut into the pages and also fold them to create sculptures from the books. Each sculpture is similar yet diffierent to the one before. I have been working with old books for the past few years and have produced a variety of pieces.

started as an independent zine run by artists Tommy Eugene Higson and Nikki Marie Jackson showcasing emerging and established talents in art, illustration, design, photography, literature and other creative and visual practices. Cheap has been involved and represented in various events and exhibitions internationally and is distributed internationally.
As artists we work and exhibit both individually and collaboratively and our work addresses various subjects and themes with several constants; accessibility, relevance and aesthetics. Cheap is a reflection of these abiding concerns and an ongoing project to describe and detail developments in regards to the broader visual and creative
cultural landscape in the form of products, exhibitions and events and critical writing.

Dee Core
I bake vegan/vegetarian cakes and thought why not spread the deliciousness around!

Liam Dobson My vector work is a very minimalist type of artwork, based on outlines and cellshaded objects, the imagery withing these pictures helps to portray many problems within our society whilst also providing comical subject matter which is appealing to the eye in a way in which may other forms of art are not.
My photography is based around what I enjoy looking at, the beauty of the world around us defines the picture rather than the photographer.
