Milan Nenezic

 Born 1983 in Belgrade, Serbia. Lives and works in Belgrade.
What has so far inspired my work is the human body and human perception. The way we see ourselves and the way the personality is transferred to the outside world by creating a new reality.
I'm particularly interested in different states of consciousness, their effect on the perception of time and space - what we call reality. A man in love perceives the reality completely different than the one that has been left, and therefore will be viewed differently by other people. Dream-like altered state of consciousness along with the symbolism of dreams is another important part of my work. Unique symbolism of each individual, in my opinion, is one of the highest levels of human creativity. The way in which we exist in this framework, to me, is a huge source of ideas and insights into the human being.

Trudy Good

Trudy Good 



Born in Hampshire, Trudy Good spent her younger years exploring and romanticising the beauty of figurative painters work such as Rembrandt, Richter, Sargent, Degas, Giacometti and Bacon. From an early age she was drawn to the worlds of these artists and of the Pre-Raphaelites, where a subtle, supernatural beauty seems to be hiding under the breath of the human form; worlds where something beyond our natural perception is present.
Although Good did begin an academic art education she opted out after a year, disillusioned with the institution and wanting to find her own path uninfluenced by current trends and teachings. In an effort to discover her own artistic sensibilities, she began over a decade-long journey of continued self-instruction and independent study.

Josef Unucka

Josef Unucka 
 
  Kresbě tužkou se věnuji od počátku 90. Let a v roce 2000 proběhla má výstava v prostorách Univerzity v Karviné, která byla charitativní akcí nadace Zdravé město. Všechny kresby byly prodány, rozdány a jako vzpomínka mi zůstalo jen pár fotek z vernisáže.

  Po roce 2000 jsem si dal několik let pauzu s kresbou a spíše občas, jako samouk, jen zkoušel pracovat na různých detailech tváře a těla.
  Poté přišel čas na první mé portréty. Ty byly blízko mým představám kresby tváře, výrazů, zachycování stínů obdobně jako fotografie a čím dál více jsem se věnoval větším a větším detailům.

Trent Gudmundsen

Trent Gudmundsen



Trent Gudmundsen grew up on a small farm in rural Utah. As a young man, Gudmundsen's passion for art was obvious, and although his paintings were raw and emotional, he showed great promise. Nearly every day he would go out into the fields and hills near his home and record his impressions of the world around him. As a teen, the artist became acquainted with Valoy Eaton, an award-winning landscape artist who guided Gudmundsen's passion. One lesson that Trent feels very fortunate to have learned from Valoy was the importance of constant study of the best art the world has to offer.

Tadeusz Machowski

Tadeusz Machowski

Tadeusz Machowski was born in 1955 in Lancut, Poland. Since his early childhood, his main passion was all kinds of art.He has been developing his talent by creating realistic landscapes for about twenty years. Then, inspired by early twentieth century art, Tadeusz started looking for some other kinds of depicting reality and expressing emotions. Drawing inspiration from artists that had been created between 1940 and 1960, he started to work on his own abstract style. Today we can be really impressed when looking at his current art.

Pavel Werner

Pavel Werner



Jmenuji se Pavel Werner, narodil jsem se 3.8.1951 v Pavlovicích, což je dědinka na Moravě.
Vystudoval jsem elektro obor s titulem inženýra, na vysoké škole jsem začal soustavněji fotit akty, protože estetika ženského těla je pro mě nejvyšší forma výtvarného cítění. Focení mi pomohlo zachytit pomocí světla křivky ženského těla a vrýt do paměti sametové odlesky pokožky. Fotografie se mi stala později vodítkem při kresbě pastelem, který se stal mým výborným vyjadřovacím nástrojem, protože je schopen vytvořit jemné přechody barev a při kresbě aktů a portrétů zcela vyhovuje mému výtvarnému cítění. Mám rád jemné tony, které dotvářím dotekem prstů na papír a tím dosahuji jemného pelu, který se tak výborně hodí k portrétování dětí.

Melissa Mailer-Yates

Melissa Mailer-Yates 

 14th October 1958
Born in the UK. Indulged in painting since I could lift a pencil. Paintings now sited all over the world, hanging in homes and public venues from royal palaces to celebrity homes, to medical facilities and other fascinating places.

Painting for me is an experience that involves every aspect of the body, every sense and every dream, not just for the artist, but more essentially for the viewer too.
My paintings have to have movement, but the majority of my paintings contain some percentage of entirely representational material, something that people can recognise and hold onto through their journey across the canvass. I love to emphasise the subject's innate beauty and life through abstract movements, which are an extrapolation of the emotions contained within the work. Thus my work often centres on an image of a person or other live subject and the kinetic energy that is inherent within it is expressed through colour, material, lines and light.


Kent Williams

Kent Williams

Kent Williams has built up a formidable reputation as a powerful contemporary painter. His is a bold realism with combined attributes of abstraction and neo-expressionistic sensibilities. His work is characterized by strong gestural forms combined with areas of arresting detail, rendered with rich dynamic brushwork.

Williams’ approach to his subjects is often subjective and intense. Whether through multi-figured compositional complexity and suggestive narrative, or with the straight-forward lone human form, there is often autobiographical narrative at play. Favorite models, friends, and the artist himself all play a role in the human story of his paintings.

Williams lives in Los Angeles. He has two sons, Kerig Sun and Ian Kai.

Stephanie Noblet Miranda

Stephanie Noblet Miranda


 Stephanie Noblet Miranda discovered that she possessed artistic talent only three years ago. She started drawing when she moved from France to Miami with her husband and her three children. Little by little she began to receive support from her family, and continued to draw more and more. Then she decided to move from paper  and to canvas. After living in Miami for two years the whole family left for New York. Then the inspiration hit her and continues to this days.  “The most important moment in my artistic career was when I moved in NYC in 2009.There, I saw all my inspiration break through for me. New York City woke something up inside me that I never know existed”, says Stephanie.

My name is Andrey Yakovlev. I am an artist, designer, and musician, and am currently studying towards a professional architecture degree at the Harvard Graduate School of Design.
My passion is creating things, bringing them into the world—to change it, but also to change the perception of it. Whereas some seek to explain the world, to measure and document it finitely, I try to mystify it, lower its resolution, inhibit understanding, and evoke a sense of wonder through which imagination may flourish.http://andreyyakovlev.com/about.html

Talantbek Chekirov

Talantbek Chekirov


 Talantbek Chekirov was born on April 15th 1971 in the former Soviet republic of Kygystan. He is an interesting new discovery in the sphere of art.
Chekirov's paintings show varied aspects of the beautiful and the decorative art; his works are extracts of his rich and broadly situated ideas concerning the ideal notion of beauty in painting. Therefore, it is of little surprise that such dissimilar genres as landscapes and stylised antique nude paintings are represented in his work.
