B9
Hephaistion (born 1981) and Saffie (born 1983) are visual artists, who work together as a collaborative duo known as “b9”, which means "Escape and Rebirth". The group was formed in 2007, while both were studying design at the University of New South Wales in Sydney.

They work closely with each other on a variety of media, including clays, screen printing, acrylics, oils, performance art, photography and so on. They describe their collaboration as “an aesthetic inquiry into visual perception and alterative perspectives into the concept of life.”
