“THE NEW ARTIST”


BOOMER MAGAZINE | FIRST EDITION | THE NEW ARTIST

In the last hundred years humankind has seen unprecedented innovations and changes- from skyscrapers to

moon landing to social media to human rights to Art.

In this very moment in our society everything moves really fast, time doesn’t seem sufficient anymore, artists

seem to find their path much harder, the ongoing changes create a need for a continuous state of Transcendence.

The aim of this publication is to find out what’s the trend in contemporary art and to create a dialogue between

the artists and the viewers.

Editor’s Note.

As we’ve mentioned previously, the aim of this publication is to connect artists with a wider audience and to

find out what’s the trend in contemporary art.

While most of the art collectors are looking to invest in very established artists, buying a work of art from a

not so known artist is not a bad investment at all.

For this publication we have chosen

Picasso as a role model so let’s have a brief look at he’s artistic development in regards to our publication.

While in Paris in 1905, Picasso was no different from any other artist and most of he’s works were bought for

a purely decorative purpose and not as an investment.

One of this works was “Young Girl with a Flower Basket”, purchased by the young collectors Leo and Gertrude

Stein for some 200 francs. Over a century later that same work was auctioned for $115 million dollars,

an amount that neither Picasso or the Steins would have ever imagined and here we come to my previous

remark- you can’t go wrong investing a reasonable amount of money into a work of art that you like, you will

be able to enjoy something that you genuinely had a desire for and you might end up with a million dollar

artwork in your collection with no effort and no major risk, something that develops on its own, purely on

the artist’s own hard work and artistic development.

Don’t take my word for it, let’s briefly look at some contemporary artists.

Jeff Koons, works valued at some $20000 in the 80’ are now worth over 20 million dollars, the same with

Damien Hirst, Andy Warhol, Jean Michel Basquiat, Tracey Emin, David Hockney etc.

While we look at this great artists we need to keep in mind that great art can be anything in any form, it

doesn’t have a pattern or a standard - From childlike lines to colour spots spread over a piece of canvas to

realistic portraits or landscapes to a bed installation to a video to a formless idea- ANYTHING CAN BE ART!

Ok, so far so good but what’s the new trend in contemporary art, who is “THE NEW ARTIST”?

Everything and anything is the new trend and anyone can be “THE NEW ARTIST”. As we look into my previous

mentions, any kind of art style and artistic practice can be very successful so... is not about a particular

style or technique, it’s all about the artist- the ability to overcome hard times and critiques while carrying on

doing ART.

Action is the foundational key to all success.- “Pablo Picasso”.

Editor @Constantin.lll

Borbala Eszteri

Borbala was born is Hungary and now lives and work in Basel,

Switzerland. She is a mixed medium painter whose colourful

works include the use of oil paint, oil pastels, acryl, aquarelle,

and ink. This merging of painting techniques allows colors and

lines to take persistent on the overall image. Borbala describes

that in her practice, she focuses on the colours and how they

affect her. Borbala has moved places many times and has

lacked a sense of permanence in her life. She uses her art and

the act of painting to find comfort in unfamiliar places. “For me

creating art is a way of finding my inner home. As long as I am

surrounded by my paintings, I feel at home,” says Borbala.

The young artist paints almost entirely people. She then uses

colour to depict the certain moods or traits on the somewhat

abstract human faces. Borbala also represents faces based on

her current attitude or her feelings towards the person that

@borbalaes

she is painting. She believes that the use of different colours

is sometimes a better and more meaningful way to describe a

person than words.

John Denniston II

Born and raised in Los Angeles, California by a family of dancers,

painting came natural to a self engaged young boy who

was too self conscious to get on stage. I moved to Brooklyn

to study at Pratt, and now I’m being introduced to the hard

part of artistry-honesty. Not like confessing, it’s not about

me, it’s about making something that I or someone might be

able to confess to. From the start of my artistic pursuit I have

believed thought is the beginning and end of painting, but

painting is also a crafted form and it is this form which delivers

@john.does.art

ideas to the view-er. From bathing in the process of crafting

paintings I have come to realize that I am a viewer in my own

right, and I don’t like spoiled tales so I usually paint to discover.

It keeps the relationship spicy and keeps me on my toes.

Jenny Jiyoung Han

Jenny Han is originally from South Korea, studied Fashion at

the University of Arts London and graduated in 2017. She

worked partially as an illustrator and a private art tutor for

young children in the middle of her education years. Previously,

she engaged in fine art studio works for three years back

during her 20s in South Korea.

She was intrigued by cartoon-based storybooks, making her

enthusiasm to see reality as an abstract figure of platforms. She

loved the dreamy lanes of focusing eyes into the philosophical

world.

I Know What I Am Looking for

@jennyjiyounghan

The majority of her works contribute to linking the syntax of

image makings that she tries not to use any of the previous

inventions experimented by other artists. The complicated-self

from her whole engagement into identity journey through

educations and experiences lead to being a multi-disciplinary

visual artist.

She takes some whimsical abstract figures and cartoon based

illustrated resources into one particular 2D format and then

re-format the subjective images, remaining equivocal resemblances,

and familiar symbols. Typically, her adoration of the

sunflower became her loveable symbol of creation. It contains

the whole validity of representational seeings into

the abstract formation.

Selin AYDINOL

Selin Aydinol (1994) moved from Istanbul to Belgium in 2016.

She received her masters in painting from Royal Academy of

Antwerp in 2019. She lives and works in Antwerp. Her first

group exhibition was “Omg Is Pink The New Black?” (2019,

Feb) curated by Spank Moons. Followed by the “To Be Antwerp”

exhibition at Geukens en De Vil Gallery (2019, Nov).

Most recently, “Zonder Kunstenaars Geen Kunst” at Muhka,

Nick Lodgers (2020, Feb), a group show which included

Chantal Akerman, Fred Bervoets, Leo Copers, Ria Pacquée and

more. Her process starts with a drawing. Selin sections this

drawing into even pieces which creates unique compositions

for each painting. She then treats them as a new territory to

integrate into. Not by manipulating the composition, but by applying

colours and textures. Selin wants to take the image and

rediscover it section by section, exposing the already existing

values that were not visible at first sight. She values the impact

that basic shapes and textures can have. She mostly cares

about the image being beautiful, without trying to define it.

William Hughes

William Hughes (b.1999, Coventry) is a multidisciplinary visual

artist working in a semi- abstracted way around themes of

memory and remembering. He draws on specific memories and

nostalgic material from his family’s history, influencing his multimedia

approach to working. He works with often discarded

and forgotten material to depict intimate and fragile themes.

“Memory is a delay. Memory is a fragment. Memory is of the

body that passed. Memory is the trace of a wave goodbye

made with a slightly clenched fist. ” (Robert Morris, 1994).

How do we read memories? Hughes’ practice seeks to explore

processes of memory and remembering, reflecting and

drawing ideas from nostalgic material from his family. Working

with multimedia processes, he creates works of abstraction

and suggestion set in spaces that trigger feelings of familiarity

in the audience. Processes of abstract marking, texture built

through layering, and its residual traces, depict confusion and

ambiguity. He uses materials found or inherited; through

@will.hughesss

reclaiming old furniture, photographs and equipment;

to using found and weathered material.

Hughes worked in collaboration with his late

grandfather, using his equipment, his memories,

to create pieces. As his Grandfathers memory

gradually worsened, the work mirrored him; gradually

becoming more deteriorated.

Ekaterina Demenina

My name is Ekaterina Demenina and I’m a Moscow-based

visual artist, Fine Art photographer. Received an MA degree in

Art History.

As a photographer and video director, I work with musicians.

Under the pseudonym Arte Obscura I launched a personal

project «Still Lifes».

Still life photography for me is a way to stop and take a breath

in the era when time is flashing like a blurry landscape in the

high-speed train.

Still life is a metaphor for still time.

@arte_obscura

The picturesque features of photography and the photographic

nature of painting are the themes I constantly explore.

I like to confuse the viewer whether it is a photographic artwork

or a painting and prefer to call my still lifes “photopaintings”.

“The Dutch Still Life” is the hommage to the XVII century

Dutch and Flemish mas-ters. The series represents the results

of my striving to “wash out” the boundaries between contemporary

photography and the Dutch Golden Age painting, to

erase the time gap.

Nowadays it is very hard not to find your path

but to be heard in the informational ocean. The

non-contemporary art is not in trends so galleries

and art dealers are not interested in my works

which seem to be outdated. But in the fast changing

times a «today» will be outdated tomorrow.

Zoe Antona

Zoe Antona is a multi-disciplinary artist and photographer,

whose work addresses self discovery through abstraction.

She grew up in Atlanta, Georgia in the US, relocated to Cincinnati,

OH, and is now based in the greater NYC area. She is

currently earning her Bachelors of Fine Art and Art History.

Her work explores relationships with self and others that

is representational of the weight and the power dynamics

all relationships possess. Zoe’s work continuously explores

intimate experiences between that of only two people. As

well as depict-ing how intimacy impacts not only the emotional

state but also the physical state. Her work aims to evoke

a visual and emotional reaction through the aesthetics and

installation of her work. The concepts for her work repeatedly

revolve around life experiences that represent power dynamics

through abstraction. In her current body of work, Zoe is

working in abstraction to manifest inner emotions from life

ex-periences.

Ana Maria Guta

As an artist I seek to explore more about the nature of Universe,

consciousness, divinity , life journey and energy around

and inside us. I admit that our universe is crossed by invisible

flows and currents which are found and influence the artworks

of each artist. I am mesmerised about the subtle things, which

are not things, thoughts, emotions or sensations, the nature of

our reality and our interpretations of it due to many labels that

impose different perceptions, behaviours and ways of being.

@amgsoulart

I have developed my painting technique following the lines of

abstract suggestion. It is required that the viewer comes with

the contemplation, feeling and interpretation. I usually prefer

using acrylics on canvas as a medium and material. The green

colour is present almost in every painting because, for me, it is

about life force, rebirth, aliveness and finding my inner self. Art

is something divine, it is love, peace, stillness, balance, harmony,

joyfulness, it makes me whole and a much more spiritual

being. The focus of my work is the colours, shapes and structures,

which I want to integrate in a certain harmony in order

not to imitate, dictate, compare, repeat, model or compensate.

My paintings speaks not only for me, but for people

who are in a deep process of transformation

and who are seeking to find life again.

Anna Wiesinger

Anna Wiesinger, an artist living in Berlin and Lowersaxony, is

known for the suggestive power of colors and shapes in her

work.

She sees herself in a tradition of sensual and at the same time

transcendent color perception, rooted in an early experience

when she came to know and love the stained glass windows in

the Gothic church of her childhood.

Raised in the countryside, she experienced the essence of

nature as stillness, strength and unlimited.

Pictures that free us in this unlimited space and yet contain

human emotions and concerns are her goal.

@annawiesinger.art

Wiesinger tries to develop a language of colours that leave

traces and point to a new experience.

She was born in Königswiesen, Austria and studied at the University

of Art in Linz.

She regularly takes part in solo - and group exhibitions.

Her work has also been featured in online and print publications,

most recently

in 2020 on the occasion of the conclusion of the commissioned

project “Art in the Industrial Monument”.

Her perception of art is defined by the belief that

the universal language of art can change the way

you interact within yourself and in society.

Because: “Here we are closely connected, here

we exist in a timeless, fantastic space full of joy

and awareness.“

Vincenzo Cohen

@vincenzocohen

Vincenzo Curcio (stage name, Vincenzo Cohen) is an Italian artist

with a classical formation. In 2005 he graduated in Fine Arts

from Fine Arts Academy and in 2007 he received a second

master’s degree in Archaeology from la Sapienza University in

Rome. Polyhedric artist, his eclectic production is the result of

a continuous process of historical-scientific research addressed

to the representation of cultural content, often with a social

and naturalistic background. He has always been interested in

studying African wildlife and he has much travelled through

Africa and Middle East to get inspiration for his art production.

His work consists in reworking of life experiences through an

expressionist language and by means of photography. Three

core themes prevail in his painting: the historical portrait, the

wildlife extinction and the marine nature. Currently he collaborates

with different Art Institutions abroad and has received

some important awards in the artistic field.

Alberto Magrin

@alberto.magrin

Alberto Magrin studied architecture at the University of Genoa.

He underwent a brief stint in the theatre after having obtained

a scholarship to study alongside sculptor Arnaldo Pomodoro at

University of Urbino. He was awarded the ‘Libertas Prize’ for

visual arts and literature by MP Ferri and collaborated in the

creation of the ‘G. A. Rol Scientific Association’ in Turin, the

purpose of which was to demonstrate man’s victory over time

through the capacity of the individual spirit. In the meantime,

he was also awarded the ‘Open Art’ prize by MP Vita in Rome.

He participated in founding of the International Digital Art

Organization ONDA. He designed the ‘ONDA Contemporary Art

Museum’ in order to allow internationally renowned artists to

construct their own permanent spaces and create a dialogue between

themselves and eternity. Like a premonition and a symbol

of ‘eternal nothingness’, this project represents the downfall

and rebirth of the modern era. Through a series of donations,

he succeeded in creating a worldwide network of art galleries,

which he called ‘Magreen Galleries’, the artworks of which are

located in public and private institutions, thus eliminating every

form of personal control or management over the works them-

selves. These artworks are currently held by

some of the worlds most important permanent

collections: The British Museum (London), MOCA

(Los Angeles), Stiftung Museum Kunst Palast

(Dusseldorf), Spazio Oberdan (Milan), Staatliche

Kunstsammlungen (Dresda) and more.

Joyce Camilleri

Joyce Camilleri is an artist teacher at the Malta School of Art.

Through regular studio practice and weekly life class sessions,

Camilleri maintains and develops a personal visual language

that attempts to explore drawing and printmaking as distinct,

nonetheless symbiotic art practices. Ongoing studio practice

allows Camilleri to push the boundaries of essentially graphical

elements through the use of mixed media, bringing about both

figurative and quasi-abstract visual metaphors that meander

along the fine line that divides yet unites the real and the

surreal. Alongside, such artistic research enables her to explore

the poetic space of contemporary drawing, whilst constantly

nourishing and revisiting an artistic process that is allowed

to prevail over subject-matter. Artistic intent and process-led

practices retain interchangeable roles throughout Camilleri’s

approach to art theory and practice.

Sarah Waters

@sarahwatersartist

As a felt artist for almost thirty years, Sarah understands the

importance, especially in these fragile and uncertain times, for

the need to highlight the history, sustainability and renewable

resources of wool and to be able to educate and show this to a

wider audience.

Sheep, wool and farming are in her blood and her current practice

of felt artwork reflects her desire to connect with the land.

For the past several years Sarah has been looking at the history

of our rural land by drawing and researching standing stones,

the ancient markers of the countryside. This culminated in

2017 in her exhibition ‘Stone’ that toured across the UK and

Canada (World Festival of Threads Solo Show), including as

part of the Richard Demarco Archive’s ‘Homage to Joseph

Beuys’, a two-person exhibition in the Demarco Wing of Summerhall

Art Centre, Edinburgh, in 2018 and in Dunoon Burgh

Hall in 2019.

Sarah is currently working on a series on pieces looking at

the earth and strata on the land, for a solo exhibition entitled

Above:Below to be shown at Farfield Mill, Cumbria in 2022.

artist based in, wherever I am.

I studied at the Polytechnic of Turin at the Faculty of Architecture,

then I completed my education at the Nad Academy in

Interior Design.

@_sabrina_barrera_

My artistic research focuses on continuous experimentation,

placing particular interest in the exploration of the soul, authenticity

and nature. Traveling solo around the world has led

me to get to know not only different cultures, but also to have

the opportunity to learn about artisanal techniques for processing

materials. For example, my last experience in Thailand

taught me traditional techniques of how to process Thai clay.

In addition, I acquired skills to construct bamboo houses and

the use of the welder to create artistic iron sculptures.

In recent years I combined architecture with the art world and

I began to exhibit in collective exhibitions (Geneve, Alba and

Turin).

He is proud to be a finalist in the Passepartout Photo Prize in

The photographs and paintings Adam produces come from a

pure and vulnerable place.

He incorporates the emotions he is feeling during the time of

creation and tries to provoke a feeling of serenity for the viewer,

using the emotional aspect of colour and setting.

A theme that surrounds his art and has intrigued his imagination

since he started creating is the idea of enlightenment;

what that term represents, and how humanity is in a constant

struggle to achieve this transcendental state.

The psychedelic nature of Adam’s distinct style moves the

audience to feel its strength, providing a window into the

heart of its creator and transporting the audience to a different

an unruly gesture of improvisation using paint. The paintings

evoke an essence of fluidity, movement and improvisation,

creating paintings with recognisable elements that contrast

with unknown and intriguing marks and shapes.

I allow the physical presence of the artist, the mark making is

Sanna Tairi is a self-taught fine artist from Stockholm, Sweden.

Her art originates from a space of a raw, unapologetic introspection

of reality and of the past. As a result of the sexualization

of girls in all forms of media, Tairi struggled with her own

self image and she started to paint herself as a way to take

back control and to celebrate womanhood.

Tairi mainly paints with oil today but she also likes to experiment

with other mediums like acrylics, spray paint, colouring

pencils and textiles. Her aim is to capture moments in time,

that represents her mindset or views of life. She has always

been motivated by the use of photography as a basis for her

practice and as a subjective response of what she sees in her

surroundings.

Magarita Ivanova

My name is Magarita Ivanova. I am a professional artist living

in Russia. Painting is an integral part of my life. For me, not

drawing is like being silent. From early childhood, I decided

to live by creativity, painted a lot, received an art and then an

architectural education. But in the end, painting took over and

became my main profession. Now I am an active participant

and winner of various international exhibitions, and my works

are in private collections around the world. The object of my

work is a person. What he is, what he feels. I am primarily

interested in the relationship between the head and body of

one person. Where is our true essence? Thoughts in the head

and body movements are sometimes completely unrelated and

even contradict each other. In my works, I play this game - who

is who. Images of the plaster heads of the gods of Olympus

are a symbol. On the one hand, this is our divine principle, on

the other, our Ego. I like this analogy of the Gods of Olympus

with human heads, thoughts. They are very similar. Immortals,

capricious, often sin, love, cruel and generous. In my works, a

person is always in dialogue with himself.

Through her lived experiences she captured glances in the lives

of others. This perspective, on the lives of many, provoked her

uneasiness that would guide her to an artistic practice of painting

and other art forms that she explores through personal,

creative and social struggles.

Her work is a constant exploration of the media, materials, and

mixed media and the base is typically canvas or paper but

her artwork also often takes the form of installations, sculpture

with social engagement thematics such as domestic violence.

Katrin Loy

I work photographically with the overlay of images and / or

digital image processing.

Photographic work plays a decisive role, because for me is not

about the depiction of the reality found, but about the new

imaging resulting from associative overlay or alienation of the

original photographic image.

One could ask: Does the form in which we perceive, think,

feel and intuitively perceive the world really correspond to a

combination of a perception of reality and associative-projective

fantasy? And what exactly corresponds to reality and what

to fantasy? And what exactly is reality and what is fantasy?

Ultimately everything is a question of consciousness ... so it is

probably both and neither and at the same time it is neither

both nor neither ... a PARADOX ...

life is just a dream of a higher AWAKENING ...

Salvatore Esposito

I’m an Italian artist, based in London, UK. I’ve studied graphic

design and photography and in fact these transitional experiences

had and still have a crucial effect on the whole process

of creating my artworks. Born and raised in Naples, south Italy,

I had to live with the very concept of discarded and recycled

material. The fact of knowing what is art and what is considered

just discarded material has always been of my interest.

That is why I tend to use upcycled material in almost all my

works, trying to picture an abstract, cultural and architectural

urban view.

My name is Ksenia and I’m 18 years old artist living in Russia.

My meeting with art began at the age of three, when, as a

baby, I started drawing on home wallpaper. Now I draw on

canvases that are taller than me. As I like to say, “the higher the

canvas, the more opportunity to express myself”The depth of

human emotion is hard to determine, but I’ll try - art will help

me with that. My goal is so that the viewer can fully plunge

into the emotion set by the author. As Mark Twain said, “Every

emotion is involuntary, if it is sincere.”

I do art because I believe that art connects, art unites, art

changes and art is unique, specifically painting, which even

without speaking, or moving can bring us countless feelings

and sensations, and this is one of my main reasons for making

art , it is for the magic of being able to touch and make each

person see my art in a unique way, being able to take to the

and loss.

Adam Shea Lancaster is an American artist from Dallas, Texas.

He creates representational paintings in a style he’s called “NeoRomantiClassical”—a

contemporary take on draped figures in

traditional poses.

His themes explore Western culture’s mythical beauty, asking

the important question: Is beauty as conceived by Western

culture (in the Greco-Roman tradition) mythical in the sense

that myth is an “untrue story” or in the sense that myth is a

“storied truth.”

Andromeda

Lancaster prides himself on creating fine art with humble craft

paint from hobby shops on drop cloths from hardware stores.

Although fluent in more refined media, he’s made it his mission

to present painting as accessible to everyone—beginning with

the art students he enjoys teaching when he’s not in his studio.

@cherieleecreations

Ancient craft in the modern age.

Prehistoric engravings have been found incised on ostrich eggshells

dating as far back 60,000 BCE. I wonder: What if they

had my tools? Using high-speed rotary equipment, I reduce this

single-celled wonder to the brink of it’s breaking point, producing

spherical sculptures inviting you to question what you believed,

and find renewed respect for what you believe possible.

Strength and weakness are together built into the structure of

all things, yet the persistent notion that big = strong & small =

weak implies an assigned separation where separation cannot

exist. When we perceive something as ‘strong’ there is attraction;

when we perceive something as ‘weak’, there is aversion;

when we ignore half of the equation, there is distortion. However

ordinary, please don’t see anything as mundane.

Wherever the unusual arises, approach it with curiosity.

What you consider to be strong, revere it’s frailty.

When you see something delicate, appreciate it’s strength.

Whether my subject-matter be ecological, sociological or anthropological,

I’m doing what’s been done for all of mankind’s

existence: appreciating the natural world around

me, marveling at it’s boundless capacity.

Raisa Khairudinova was born in 1962 in Kazakhstan. Her

interest in drawing and creativity was noticed and developed

by grandmother, who was a teacher. Raisa graduated from the

children’s art school. At that period, she didn’t plan to connect

her life with the fine arts and linked her with medicine.

The dream of an art education came true after retirement. In

2017 she graduated from the Kazan College of Folk Arts and

Crafts with a degree in “Designer”.

@raisakzn

Wassily Kandinsky, Kazimir Malevich, Piet Mondrian - influenced

the formation of her artistic style, because it allows you

not to be limited to a given shape and makes it possible to express

the deep essence through colours and arbitrary shapes.

Raisa which gives the work volume and texture: plaster, jute

thread, coloured gravel, texture pastes, shells. She works with

Mixed Media technique, uses oil and acrylic, prefers bright,

clear colours, which have a regenerative perception on the

viewer.

The main idea of Raisa’s creativity is the visual expression of

feelings, emotions and thoughts, eternal questions of communication

with the outside world.

Since 2020 - a member of the Russian Artists

Union.

Sarah Bird

Sarah Bird’s collages are made up of photographs of domestic

surroundings that have been fragmented, digitally distorted

and re-composed as abstract artworks. They follow the

tradition of artists meditating upon the theme of ‘home’,

re-imagined for the digital age. They explore architecture and

community: the places we inhabit and share. Bird uses veils of

vivid colour to blend real with imagined,

making the familiar, alien.

@sj8ird

Windows and doorways are common motifs that mark thresholds,

the liminal points of boundary and change. The weave

of a curtain dissolves into pixels; the view through a window

reveals nothing.

Bird is drawn to things that show traces of human action over

time: the layers of paint and wallpaper, or imprints on a bedsheet.

These are symbolic of narratives becoming distorted,

entrenched and even oppressive over time. They reflect the

fragmented way in which we pass on and take in information in

the digital age.

Sarah Bird studied at Goldsmith’s College and lives and works

in London. She exhibits regularly and her work

is held in private collections in the UK and USA.

Her work has been used on an album cover for

Japanese artist Brockbeats and she has been

shortlisted for the Apthorp Prize.

northern Germany in 1994 and later moved to Australia at

the age of 19. Throughout her life, Honey has always been

fascinated by people, images and how the mental world is

represented though the eyes of others. Needles to say, she

was drawn to the idea to become a clinical psychologist. The

interest was cultivated already during her young teenage years

and developed when she opted her university degree of the

same subject. She likes to create a realistic interpretation of

people, while focusing on expressive elements of light and texture.

Honey uses art as medium of self-therapy, which is why

it helped her heal, understand others and herself better. She

believes that stimulating the creative mind while relieving mental

strain can be well expressed in painting rather than words.

Feelings of sadness and harmony emanate from her paintings.

Honey’s recent paintings seek to expose a delicate equilibrium

between a sense of tumult and painterly texture.

I am a conceptual installation artist and painter based in London.

I moved to London from Ukraine in 2001. I have been a

part of Insight school of Art since 2013, having recently joined

their Studio Fridays. My work is constructed from material

found on building sites, which I represent as visions of my my

own inner fears, like ageing, loneliness, anger and mortality.

My organic materials are glued, wired and layered tightly, interconnecting

and merging into each other. I am telling a story

of my personal cultural dilemma and the experience of loss.

I am currently researching the philosophy of ageing. I enjoy

researching my body of work through books and dialogues. My

symbolic objects remind us of mortality, fragility of life, memory

loss and passing physicality. I am trying to transform decay

into something beautiful, therefore giving it another life. My

recent Ageing project has a strong message of fear of ageing

process and the stigma of dementia. I am explicitly highlighting

the damage that time imposes on human body and mind, how

it erases lingua, memories and consciences. My focal point is

the importance of human validation. I would like to highlight

the current social denial and dehumanising power of vulnerable

and old. I am a multidimensional artist working on

3D, mixed media, video, sculpture and installations.

Lise Bouissiere

@lisebouissiere

I am a London based RSS artist and graduate from Central

Saint Martins and Chelsea school of art. My practice focuses

on the optimization of space and the use of material through

the specific construction of ideas I play with to create minimalist

and straight forward compositions. My constructions reveal

a memory, a current state or a hidden side of a place with the

elements that surround it. In many cases, the place I construct

my art is transformed like a mental space, offering to the viewer

a large panel of interpretations. I often qualify my sculptures

as ephemeral and infinite: the modular compositions made of

salvaged materials I develop open up to endless variations.

London is an essential source of inspiration to me, my sculptures

stores… thus; branches, straws, and hangers are some examples

of components I use to portray this thrilling city full of life

and contrasts. I come from a remote place surrounded by nature,

so I interpret the London cityscape in a very organic way,

both themes of nature and architecture are fused to create

odds and playful compositions.

Alpana Mittal Tejaswini

Tejaswini is an accomplished and versatile artist working in

multiple media. Her major contribution to the world of Art is

her creations using beads on canvas.

Tejaswini creates intricate pieces made with perler beads on

canvas. Her interest in this unique medium began in 2008,

when she purchased an art kit, as a Christmas gift, for her

daughter. As her little girl created small birds and flowers using

the beads in the kit, the artist started visualizing different patterns

on the canvas with these beads and realized she found

the perfect texture for her designs.

Born into an art loving family, Tejaswini was exposed to art and

its appreciation from early childhood. She chose Fine Arts as

her major and has a M.F.A. from CCS University, India. She also

has an Arts Management diploma from New York University.

@tejaswini.ap

Tejaswini has displayed her artwork globally in exhibitions and

has been widely acclaimed for her multifaceted style. Her traditional

painting depicting “Krishna” was judged Best in Show

by Hudson Artists on NJ at their 60th anniversary Exhibition

in 2013. She received an Outstanding Service award from Sing

for Hope, NYC 2019, having painted a piano for the organiza-

tion, titled “Basant Utsav.”

Lucy Ellis

@lucyellisart

Lucy Ellis is a digital artist based in London whose work explores

anthropology, the human condition and herd mentality

within society. In “Untitled” she explores sexually antagonistic

selection in modern society and how pornography has affected

male fitness. In her work “Grass Carpet” she explores urbanisation

and its growing dominance globally in relation to economic

development, as well as our perception of nature and its use

for decoration. In “Digital Tapestries” the use of digitalising the

images presents the distortion of humanity and how we have

adapted as a human race. These tapestries will live forever

online and won’t overtime become worn out like how a traditional

woven tapestry would. She is currently studying Fine

Art at Central St Martins where she is emerging and adapting

her digital practice. She works mainly in animation and video

as well as sculptural work and digital paintings. The use of a

digital practice relates to her exploration of the distortion of

humanity away from primates and our association with the

natural world.

Joely Neilan

Joely Neilan (b. 1996) is from Kettering, England. She is a multidisciplinary

Artist, whose practice predominantly focuses on

Sculptural Paintings and Objects made from concrete.

The inspiration behind Joely’s work is derived from exploring

urban environments. In a world where no condition is permanent,

she finds herself gaining inspiration from what she calls

“urban imperfections”, often found in the more derelict areas

of towns, cities & built environments. She is also particularly

interested in the Anthropocene and the “man-made” & often

re-uses single use plastic to create different textures within her

work.

@neilanjoely

Joely takes visual cues and snippets from architectural forms,

textures and surfaces which are represented through the

characteristics of the materials she uses within her work. She

creates a unique aesthetic that resembles a derelict ‘chic’

visual with accents and bursts of colour. For Joely, the process

behind creating her work is very important and centres around

the relationships between the materials she uses, layers, structural

integrity, tensions and fragility.

Penny Stuart, an experimental and published Dublin artist,

draws from life with charcoal. She has been attending the Life

drawing class in Trinity Arts Workshop for 3 years. Many of

her portraits are recognisable as African Heads, and these

make reference to her first encounters with a sitter as she was

embarking on this creative journey. Penny also does very large

abstract acrylic paintings that are strong colour and textural

statements . In tandem with this two dimensional work Penny

has over the past year begun experimenting with clay/sculpturing

heads and using mobile digital media to manipulate images

from the original photos taken during the creating process of

the pieces, to produce exciting abstracted juxtapositions that

offer the viewer different dimensions of immersion. Exhibitions

include a collaborative event with the Whispering Trees Collective

in May 2019 in Blackrock Market and an exhibition with

Trinity Arts Workshop at Pearse Centre Dublin, June 2019. She

has had a number of her charcoal pieces with the themes of

Metamorphosis and Audacity published in respected Literary

publication Jolt. (Journal of Literary translations with 7 images

in 3 volumes) I am recently taking zoom life drawing workshops

Dolores Mephistopheles is a Croatian artist based in Berlin,

who combines energy work with painting in order to express

herself. Inspired by life lessons, music and techno culture, she

is painting with acrylics on paper where for some paintings,

she uses her whole body as a tool. Colours that dominate her

work are only red, blue, black and white. Combination of those

four colours represent a union of her feminine and masculine

energy, together with light spirit and dark necessities. Paper

that she uses is theoretically not meant for painting and thus,

symbolises vulnerability of the creations. The mission of her

work is to connect the viewers with parts of themselves that

they might not be connected with.

Rita Hisar

My life journey is unique, as I have always been an Artist but

only recently did I pursue it professionally, after working in Law

and Education. I have always expressed myself through art and

color. As a child, I grew up on a farm entranced by the beauty

of trees, flowers and animals. I wanted to capture the fleeting,

fragile Beauty of nature through art…before it disappears.

However, growing up, I did not think being an Artist was a possible

career, so I decided to study and pursue other passions: I

obtained 4 university degrees and worked as a refugee lawyer

and teacher. Nevertheless, I always found time to paint, to

create. A few years ago,I decided to pursue art more seriously,

studying art at The Ontario College of Art anDesign University

and The Toronto School of Art. My art education gave

me the confidence to pursue an Art Career. Inspired by the

Movements I studied-Expressionism, Fauvism and Pop Art – I

developed my own style using a palette knife and acrylic paint

to paint bold and vibrant portraits, still life and figure paintings.

@se________va

I DRAW WHAT I WANT AND LOVE.

I SHARE THE BEAUTY WHICH I SEE AND FEEL,

I LEAVE FOR THE AUDIENCE A SPACE FOR THEIR OWN

FEELINGS AND THOUGHTS”

In my art, I work at the intersection of styles of fine art,

forming my own. I try to raise questions from the viewer, to

introduce the viewer into a state of some confusion at the first

eye contact with the work, and it is a moment of beauty transfering

and the exchange of energy between art and man takes

place. And I try to strengthen this exchange with symbols in

my works on the principle of a reliable and solid foundation. In

my works of small format, I have already managed to derive the

term Trashrealism.

Trashrealism is the moment when fragments of a pictorial

form strive to convey reality with the help of an artist, me,

Seva Boytsov. I find these “fragments” in the abstract space of

unnecessary forms of fine art. I bring them to life by working

from nature. And I broadcast all this to the viewer.

The spaces and heroes in my works have an alternative color

scheme - with this I emphasize that the color of the skin does

not matter. The modern world still cannot accept the truth - we

are all equal and everyone is unique.

Most often, the subjects for my works are myths and ancient

scriptures. These themes are always relevant to Humanity -

they tell us about love, passion and death. They inspire me to

create my artworks.

@_marinaclemente

Marina Clemente is a conceptual artist and painter living and

working in Paris, France. Her work is concerned with the

theme of searching for a new connection through disconnection

in our fast- paced world. Clemente approach this theme

through the metaphor of sleep and dreaming.

Dreaming is a unique experience which cannot be fully shared

with another person. We cannot take a friend’s hand and call

him to come along. When we are plunged into the dream world

we go there alone.

For the past 5 years Clemente was noticing and capturing

sleeping people from her daily life, her friends or family.

From the archival material collected, a series of paintings “In

Dreams” was born.

Clemente’s work is an exploration of the connection between

the dream and the reality in the context of our perpetually

hurrying world. She exhibited in Europe, most notably in Paris

and Berlin.

Her paintings are hanging in private collections in Europe,

Russia and the United States.

Through the exploration of visual myth-making Larissa

Monique Hauck expands on concepts surrounding femininity

and nature as a vessel for catharsis, vulnerability, and impermanence.

Her ethereal drawings reflect a duality between fantasy

and reality, by conjuring dream-like imagery that develops into

a transformative state reflecting on the fleeting aspects of

time and humanity. These notional subjects respond to feelings

of isolation in a crowded and alienating world by evoking the

healing that comes from within.

@larissamoniquehauck

There has been major changes across the world this past year,

and as important as it is to adapt it is equally if not more important

to take care of ourselves. This series of small-scale ink

drawings were created during the quarantine of 2020/21 and

reflect upon the importance of remembering that as humans

we are a part of nature ourselves, and like flowers and plants

we need to tend to our parts (whether is is spiritually, mentally,

or physically). Otherwise we will atrophy and eventually wither

Patricia Figueiredo

Patrícia Figueiredo lives and works in Rio de Janeiro. Initially,

her creative process found a place in her training in architecture,

a place that served as a trigger for the development of a

creative-artistic vision that would emerge in other media.

With collage, she found a possibility of enunciation of her

language, where images and words subscribe to each other and

resurrect motivating issues of painting and sculpture. Starting

from this, Patricia begins an exhaustive and obsessive process

searching for the word that will unfold in its original form,

such as the link of chain that somatizes an incessant search for

a proper word or by a proper name, which always results in

something new.

@venetiajollandsart

I am an artist and musician based in Crouch End, London. Having

always felt a huge need to feed my creative spirit, I continued

to draw and paint whilst studying the violin at the Guildhall

School of Music and Drama. Recently, I have had time to take

my career as an artist further alongside my music making and

can often be found painting in my studio at Blue House Yard. I

enjoy exploring various painting media, but predominately use

acrylics, oil and pencil in multiple layers on my canvas. I aim to

use as much recycled material and packaging as possible, as

I believe that creativity should exist in harmony with nature,

wherever possible.

My work explores the connection between aesthetics and reality;

I am inspired by both life’s unanswerable questions and the

startling beauty of our fragile existence and the planet that we

call home. Alongside this, I am interested in historic iconography

and the meaning of art in different cultures and places, by

patterns found in nature, and traditions in design and architecture.

I deeply enjoy the process of painting, whether through

bold mark making or fine details, and am always

looking to create a sense of unity in my work

using form, colour and texture.

Nick Lawrence

Nick Lawrence studied fine art at Winchester School of Art;

specialising in sculpture, printmaking and painting. Nick’s painting

series “What’s That Noise?” seeks to portray the blurred

lines between our physical and digital memories, and the

fragmentary nature of identity and information in the contemporary

world. In a reflection of the way this data is chopped

and changed the paintings themselves have been cut up and

collaged back together, producing a new result each time the

process is repeated. This process draws parallels between the

way human mind interacts with and constructs its own memories

with scraps of sound, smell and sight, and the ever increasing

lack of clarity surrounding how information is compiled and

presented as fact in the digital age.

Rustem Ibatullin ( Rustie

Muar)

My name is Rustem Ibatullin. Born 29.04.1980

I am an artist from Russia and live in city Kazan. I graduated

from the Faculty of Design (KSABA Kazan) in 2012, and earlier

from the Art School. I was also taught (privately)by professional

ol painter artists.

I use the initially acquired skills of understanding the basics

of perspective, composition, design and artistic thinking, but

in order to be an artist and not a graphic designer, you need

expression of technique, color, subjective vision, which allows

you to go beyond what is possible for a physical object in terms

of its practicality and convenience (if you take the design).

In terms of the emotional component, I am an adherent and

@ibatullinru

lover of style and artists who profess the idea of sharp perception

of color and form, stylish rigor, clarity, tension of emotions,

the presence of objectivity, despite the fact that non-objective

art is currently the most popular and advanced. But still, I do

not depict a copied or just a landscape, but a plot and mood. I

paint pictures on different topics, without focusing narrowly on

something specific, but I think that it would be good for any

mature artist with many years of experience, the

most important thing is to keep your style, but

you can’t fake it.

Alicia Quigley

@nakedquig

Alicia ‘Quig’ is an Irish artist, currently residing in Berlin .

Mainly working in large-scale format and dabbling in various

mediums from acrylics and oils to spray paint and graphite,

Quig makes use of any material necessary to tell the story of

each visual creation. This often leads to intricately layered textures

and tones that bring a unique element to each and every

piece. Quig’s art career began with her fascination with painting

on recycled and used materials, such as old wooden cutoffs

that she would collect from a local wood artist. The one-of-akind

scrapes, scratches, tones and dimensions in every piece

would prompt an idea or subject matter which she views as a

continuation of the story that has already begun. From here,

she has taken part in various group exhibitions throughout

North America, such as, the RAW Natural Born Artist Showcase,

the Pancakes and Booze Exhibition, Vancouver, and

MADS Milano, Milan, as well as multiple commissions including

her participation in the Squamish Mural Festival in BC, Canada.

‘’Exploring themes of identity and transformation I like to ta-

-ke strong recognizable subjects and morph them

into a form that is conflicting and contrary to

expectation. The ideas of expectation vs reality

and sincerity vs deception, are ones that I believe

are prevalent within our society.

I’m a young mixed media artist from the Netherlands, born

1991. I tend to work with different mediums such as photography,

painting and drawings. Usually my work is intuitive, and

I try to find spirituality within the work. What made me come

to this point is having studied a variety of religions and also

Buddhism. Painting cán be very meditative and arts can be

spiritual. Nevertheless, my path drew me here after mental

illnesses, so I believe it’s a good path to take, working with

color, intuition, lines, and subconscious drawings.

The artist focuses on emotional expression, strives to achieve

as great an effect as possible by simpler means. She loves

the light, often uses bright and contrasting combinations to

produce the best impression. Alina likes to arouse the viewer’s

curiosity with unusual details and implied sense in her works.

The storylines in her paintings are left open for interpretation

by the viewers themselves. The artist opens us her own

perspective of the world and its inconstancy. The primary

objective is creation of works that do not provide the viewer

with ready answers through either the plot, or

the colors, or the rhythm. Currently lives and

creates works in Kazan, Russia.

I was a child. In 2004, I graduated from the Art school with

honors. However, after a difficult adolescence and uncertainty

caused by my love for natural sciences, I postponed my dream

of becoming an artist and decided to become a doctor. I still

love medicine as science (not practice), but I feel happy only

with the brush in my hand. Becoming a mom made me realize

that dreams cannot be postponed! There is no better time than

now!

@elillustration

So now I am an artist with a medical diploma and an unlimited

love for science, art and the human body. In my artworks, I

want to convey to the viewers important aspects of our life

related to health and threatening environmental pollution, in

order to inspire people for a more conscious attitude to their

bodies and their environment. Medical education has given me

such knowledge that I want to share, since knowledge about

the human body and the influence of external and internal

factors on it can qualitatively improve a person’s life and help

to avoid many problems.

@stuartanna

Anna Stuart is an emerging artist based in France. Her grandfather

was a talented self-taught Russian artist, whose skills and

vision were admired by many. A lawyer by trade, Anna lived

and worked in different parts of the world, which gave her a

chance to get deeper insights into various cultures, traditions

and customs. This experience allows her now to see many

things from a different perspective and to use techniques and

inspirations which create her own unique style. Already, her

works are getting noticed. Her aquarelles were recently exhibited

in one of London’s central galleries.

“If I could say it in words there would be no reason to paint”

– this quote by Edward Hopper guides Anna in her work.

Working with watercolours, gouache and pastel primarily in

the style of art naïf, her creations can be very detailed; many

with humour, and some of them are puzzles. She always tries

to tell a story - whether it’s real or imagined.

Constantly discovering ways to express herself in visual art,

Anna tends to use a more contemporary approach and follows

only one rule: “THERE ARE NO RULES IN ART”.

exhibition What It Feels Like a Girl tries to capture a woman’s

life (desires, thoughts, and feelings in individual important

moments of their lives) in 20 oil paintings. I have always taken

women as muses that inspire me not only in an artistic career.

I admire their way of thinking and looking at the world. During

my life so far, I have met several exceptional women who have

strongly influenced and supported me in my decisions. For

these reasons, I decided to dedicate my new exhibition mainly

to them. The paintings created during the years 2018-2020.

It’s a manifesto celebrating women, trying to deal with the

question of the position of women today and the concept of

feminism as such. And also, to bring a woman’s life closer to

the male audience and portray how it feels to be a woman.

Mary Badalian is a contemporary visual artist currently living

and working in Yerevan, Armenia. A lawyer by training, Mary’s

interests span international relations, human rights and

questions of ethics and integrity which she developed through

internships at the Armenian Constitutional Court, Chamber of

Advocates and at the UN in Armenia. In parallel to her university

studies in law (Slavonic University of Armenia, 2018), Mary

rediscovered her passion for art and creativity as a form of

self-expression. For Mary these two paths - although distinct

- are interconnected: while the law creates an environment for

freedom of thought, art is the expression of that liberty in its

most human form.

Since 2017, Mary has immersed herself in a practice of mixed

media on canvas that involves intricate embroidery of thread

and beads covered by acrylic paint, often in a monochrome palette.

Her practice is both an ode to her Grandmother, an avid

embroiderer, as well as a “quiet rebellion” as she transforms a

traditionally female, domestic craft into large scale works of

fine art.

in 2008 she started working as a freelance photographer. She

focuses on artistic projects.

As a photographer I work on snapshots of a fictional world.

They deal with personal feelings, relationships and troubling

situations in one´s life. In my work I get inspired by classical

paintings such as Fra Angelico or Hieronymus Bosch and their

peculiar perspective and image composition. Therefore, all my

photographs reflect a certain plot.

evakosinar.at

I work experimentally and alienate my works with different

methods. Digital photographs of persons of objects are the

point of departure for my work. I design and produce all the

backdrops and props for my photographs myself, which reflect

the influence of classical paintings. Afterwards I manipulate

them digitally. Again, medieval examples from oil paintings

strongly influence me. I use different materials for this, which is

why primed newsprint or fabric can serve as image carriers in

addition to classic photographic paper.

express symbolism, simplicity and emotion where in the final

viewer.

All of Ilana`s works were created using authentic Chinese

materials and tools such as xuan rice paper, black ink, colored

mineral pigments and special brushes.

@anastasiia.serge.artist

@k.romanovich.art

Ksenia Romanovich and Anastasiia Serge graduated same architectural

faculty in the Academy of Art (2012, 2014). Ksenia

works as architect with large companies designing buildings for

them in Russia and Greece. Anastasia works as Illustrator and

textile designer for international brands. Both artists take part

in group exhibitions, and each had a personal one.

Studying architecture for 10 years led them to a realization

that the description of the world is alike drafting a design,

where the complex can be uncovered in parts. The act of creation

becomes space “appropriation” for the artist, at the same

time as the “conquests” of own boundaries are exposed. Painting

and graphics, in this light, are tools for the architectural

design of one’s own perspective — inside out and back inwards

again. Heavy turns light, dark — bright, empty becomes filled,

and then in the opposite direction ad infinitum.

I studied monumental art at university in Crimea. I started my

after that russia occupied the Crimea, I moved on in Kyiv, and

here I started the business again from zero. During this work,

I took the course of calligraphy, I fell in love with it, and I even

participated in the calligraphic exhibitions, including the main

festival of literature in Kyiv, Mystetsky Arsenal.

In 2018 we started to make my own jewelry, for realise my

ideas. But this was not enough for me too, I have always been

felling that I need to say much more to this world, and during

the quarantine I started to search my own style in the art.

I have made more than 50 artworks in 10 months, and even

for me. Now, I finally feel my way, where I should move. Now

@the_beautiful_error

Katie Hallam is an artist working primarily in digital photography

and print but has recently moved into creating sculptural

works where new media art meets geology, fossils and contemporary

spaces. This allegory is shown in motifs of geology

representing ‘ancient power’, with the digital age represented

with an electrifying palette; neon green and ultraviolets. Katie

considers the traces our digital culture will leave on the earth

by creating hybrid manifestations through sculpture and digital

materiality. Like alchemy, her works connect new media technology

with archaic power. These ‘digital-mineral hybrids’ are

hypnotic works that sit against a background of open, natural

and urban landscapes as Katie teases the question of a glitch in

nature.

Sun Boyi is a motivated Chinese independent filmmaker and

artist. Since her first encounter with electronic video equipment,

Sun has been practising moving image for nearly 14

years in the genres of video, television, documentary, digital

film, experimental film and, most recently, film installation art.

Sun’s practice interests have always revolved around the creative

development of ‘Gan Jue’ (translates as ‘feeling’) as a tool

to promote ‘mutual understanding’ between different societies

and species in film practice, and to help to break down ‘boundaries’.

Influenced by Taoist and Heidegger’s phenomenological

thought, she is particularly adept at using allegorical techniques

to expose social issues through the trivial experiences

of everyday human life. So far, she has produced a range of

works, including The Inner Voice (2013), The Gate (2015), The

Beginning of a War (2016), Mr Zhang(2018), and A Truth Hunter(2021).

Her works were awarded Best Black Humour Movie

at both the Los Angeles Film Festival and Festigious International

Film Festival, and selected by the China Documentary

Academy Awards, London Independent Film Festival,

Atlanta International Film Festival, Ethnografilm

Paris Film Festival, Barcelona Planet Film Festival

and the Golden Globe Awards. Sun is currently

studying for her PhD at the University of the

Arts London. Her current practice is particularly

concerned with the translation of different ways

to feel’ formed by Chinese culture to the international

community through film practice in the

post-epidemic era.

Krzysztof Bobrowski

Born …. to paint and create.

Educated in a country between the West and the East, the

artist was influenced by dissonance of the two worlds. Broad

education injected intellectual depth and spiritual experiences

embellished it. The artist unites different contradictive

rhythms, aggressive expression of drawings, nostalgic slash of

portraits and suggestive intenseness of the conceptual art.

The artist was inspired by various art civilizations: glamour and

nostalgia of Italian art, furiousness of Spanish art and reflection

of oriental art. The pieces of art have been created in different

techniques like drawings in pencil or Indian-ink, pastel, oil and

acrylic painting as well as water-color.

experiences.

In my works, I talk about human perception and self-identification.

First of all, this is the psychology of the perception of

the human body. I work with the body-object, using semiotics

and technical modifications, I create a certain image. What we

see is our experience. My knowledge of the visual arts gives

me the opportunity to play and freely turn to the semiotics and

pictorial heritage of the past.

Lacey Kim

I always loved the feeling of applying paint with a brush. The

texture created when paint is combined with liquid solvent,

and the changes observed when colors are mixed with one

another, provide a constant, intimate thrill.

@lkimstudio

My painting reflects a line-based language, defined by layers

and color combinations. I try to be true of myself while I work

on each painting. I believe directness of acting and being is

the way to one’s true nature. This nature is not something we

make; it is already there. Zen teaches that we spend years

forgetting and abandoning this nature, but that we can always

access it again. Once realized, this clear approach translates

effortlessly to everything I create.

The process of painting is not simply about my own journey

but about connecting with others. My work reflects something

that is shared; Mahayana, or ‘great vehicle’, captures the idea

of finding wholeness in harmony with other beings. Creating

art is, therefore, a powerful way to engage this wholeness.

I consider the contents of each painting to reflect a captured

moment - the record of a fleeting experience. I

hope my work provides viewers with a window to

the truth of their own being.

Ohkyoung Noh

Ohkyoung Noh (b.1997) is a socially-engaged artist and progressive

educator based in Seoul, South Korea.

For the past three years, Noh is interested in highlighting

various kinds of “dislocation” that city dwellers experience due

to their limited resources. “Dislocation” occurs when residents’

largely unsuccessful attempts to make their dreams of ideal

living conditions real create a variety of mismatches between

their expectations and their limited materials. This state indicates

the unattainability of one’s ideals and the insufficiency

of our material lives but also are easily neglected by the same

person unmindful of visual and material ironies. Noh visualizes

this matrix of dislocated ideals in a city by layering and

contrasting multiple examples of individuals’ hoped-for ideals

and their actual material conditions through performance,

digital images, and installations as well as urban media. Noh’s

works have been exhibited in A-brick Gallery, Woosuk Gallery,

Hongik Museum of Art(HOMA), and CICA Museum.

also reflected in my art: my topics are searching for meaning,

aspiring for calmness and clarity; harmony with nature; the

relationship between human and nature; microcosm inside

everyone. Throughout my life, I have seen many nations and

cultures, thus, myths, legends, and fairy tales also attract me,

and I show all these topics in my art. In my paintings I aim to

show the world, what fills me: a deep beauty full of secrets and

discoveries, a world that connects with nature, and causes the

deepest experiences. Now I work creating paintings and book

@ellie_hawkes_designs

My practice explores nature in all forms through processes of

photography and printing techniques. The subjects I use have

primary references to environmental matter and can be perceived

as physical samples of nature. My work more recently

has been focused around printed matter and digital processes,

exploring seasonal colours and shapes. The prints respond to

natural settings and appear three dimensional in form.

Circular shapes are the main theme within my practice, used to

magnify specific areas of a photographic image or design. Perspex

and vinyl materials are used to compose the circular discs

I create. The translucent material enables light and colouration

to infiltrate through the work, creating depth and obscurities.

I submerse myself in nature to gather new concepts. I love capturing

flowers in circular forms and presenting them within a

circumference, as in nature there are no straight lines or sharp

corners. Circles to me also represent the sun, the moon and

the earth, which are ever-changing and evolving around us, just

as nature is. There is something beautiful and intricate about

taking physical samples of nature and representing them in an

artwork, it makes us stop, look and appreciate

how exquisite our surroundings are.

Anna Stevens

@mulier_d_stulta

The artist works with performative experimental film and

installation to explore the vulnerable corporeality of the body.

Inspired by 1970s and 80’s horror films (such as David Cronenberg’s

Videodrome), they balance comedy with horror through

low-value, tacky imagery and techniques. They aim to increase

mortality and bodily awareness to discuss absurdism, the idea

that one cannot create a meaningful existence in a meaningless

reality, whilst also encouraging an audience to accept and embrace

this fact. Fleshy imagery is used to theatrically immerse

an audience in fakery to highlight key factors of reality and exhibit

the body for what it really is—just meat. By taking Geoffrey

Gorer’s idea of the pornography of death, removing the

gore-driven imagery from its context, and re-contextualising it

in an art space, the imagery grows to cause a deeper contemplation

of the vulnerable body. However, rather than dwelling

on unfulfilling death anxieties, awareness of life’s shortness

and meaninglessness should be liberating, as one can construct

new and enjoyable meanings for oneself to live by. The artwork

induces laughter and revulsion for cathartic release.

I am interested in the participants relationship with production

and outcome. Through site specific work, interventions and

workshops I explore this interest using materials such as paper,

whiteboard and tape for participants to engage with to reveal

new insights or ideas in the form of drawings, sculptures, and

live performances.

My role within this process varies depending on the project,

acting as a facilitator, observer or active participant. I operate

in this manner as it allows me to explore curiosity through a

trans-disciplinary lens rather than fixing my practice to a specific

medium or discipline.

Lena Snow

@janagoddessarts

Lena Snow is an international recognized mixed media artist

based in Germany. She uses different materials like everyday

objects, plastic, fabric and implements them into her artworks

thereby creating unique pieces of art. Her current Goddess

series shows female entities that are both mythical and energetic.

The artist wants to highlight the feminine, emancipated

and evolved characteristics, sometimes even the recreational

or protective maternal features. Lena’s Goddesses are strongly

connected to nature and therefore sustainability and a re-use

of materials is reflected in her creations. Lena’s goal is to create

art that her viewers experience as an energy source on their

walls and to evoke a deeper connection to themselves. She

intends the textures of her artworks to be touched so that the

beholder feels a deeper connection with them and can fully

internalize the effects of her creations. She wants to express

a “higher” self that is spiritually elevated and transformed.

Lena has been chosen to be one of the most investable artists

in 2021 and has been published in several art magazines and

books like the Contemporary Art Book of Excellence.

studied Latin American Studies at the University of Cologne

and UNAM, focusing on research about the Mexican urban art

scene. Later I worked various years as a cultural project manager

I have continuously worked on my own artistic production and

participated in exhibitions in Germany, Mexico and Switzerland

during this time. I am dedicated to painting, illustration and

murals and like to experiment with different materials, techniques

and styles. Lately, I have been working particularly with

watercolors and acrylics, creating blurry and colourful, yet harmonic

scenes which I then intervene with delicate illustrations,

using ink, ball pen or oil paint brushstrokes, alluding to dreams

and the subconsciousness. This way I create associative and

surreal, imaginative worlds.

Sylwia Żółkiewska

@zolkiewskaart

Polish visual artist working across various mediums such as

painting, digital graphics, and animation. Digital researcher

thriving to find connections between art, technology, and

reality.

In her art she draws her inspiration from both the offline

and online worlds, touching upon issues related to durability

and data processing, memory and oblivion, and the vision of

post-digital culture. In the center of her interest lies the image

itself, both the ‘real’ and the digital one, its conventionality and

illusory nature. In her work, she explores the potential of the

image to affect the viewer, its interference and multisensory

nature, experimenting with time, movement and texture. Using

a variety of surfaces and media, her works often change and

update when the viewpoint changes, reflecting the ephemeral

nature of the digital world. She also creates transmedia narratives,

drawing inspiration from interactive film, new media,

graphics, typography, architecture.

In 2007 she received an MFA from the Academy of Fine Arts in

Krakow (Poland), and for a while studied Media Arts in Finland.

Currently, she is working on her Ph.D. at the Faculty of New

Media in Polish-Japanese Academy of Information

Technology in Warsaw.

Stella Dragovic, a conceptual artist that studies on Bauhaus

statement „The observer must become a participant because

that is the only way he can have the double experience, of

being the observer, and being observed.“ you can feel in all her

works. It is the way she works and what art means to her, it is

the way to give observer the possibility to feel the same emotions

that she feels. Her work is very raw and gives you more

than one dimension of it. The emotion she is trying to bring

over is the feelings of fear, absence, incoherence, rejection,

and emotional instability.

When I was 9 years old, a teacher told us in class to draw

whatever wewanted, it occurred to me to paint an abstract

expression with manycolors that was exactly what I liked and

made me feel. Very proud of mydrawing, I presented it to the

teacher and tore it into as many piecesas he could. That moment

marked my artistic life forever and until manyyears later I

was not able to express myself like that again.

@ferro_crearte

When I decided to do it, I started painting on canvas and

presenting myworks in small galleries and places such as

restaurants, Pub’s, etc. I donated one of my works to the public

school of Domaio where my son studied, I do street performance,

I paint on canvas, I have painted scooters, I have painted

mannequins, I have crushed irons and painted with colors

and everything that I play to express what I feel.

My artistic training is based on observing what I feel and capturing

it. I learn from any type of art and I try to advance every

day and that my works evolve with me.

Bismark Alejandro Rex

@alejandro.bismark_

An interdisciplinary artist merging painting, sculpture and

architecture studies through the breaking down of boundaries

of what is considered a work of art. This is expressed

in an intuitive creative process through the use of discarded

mundane objects and salvaged materials, being guided by

what nature can reveal when one knows how to seek. A vital

recurring theme in his works is a deep-rooted quest for identity,

having dual nationality between Mexico and the US and

experiencing both cultures existentially. Inherent with a native

instinct to push the limits and finding a sense of freedom, his

artworks embody that of a neo-shaman wandering through the

simulacra of buildings, paved ground, lush forests and serpentine

bayous in the paradoxical landscapes of the metropolis.

Throughout his travels and experiences he also illustrates a

reference to ancestral wisdom through Mexica folklore, thus

revealing our lost connection to nature.

Asha Lepiarczyk was born in Poland in 1984 and immigrated

to Canada in 2011. Currently, she lives and works in Burnaby

British Columbia. Her upbringing is tightly related to horses as

her parents are equestrian coaches. Asha was raised among

those animals in a beautiful valley in the heart of National Park.

In her early 20s, she attended Jagiellonian University for Russian

Philology as well as Judaic Studies. She was also studying

in the department of European Studies and Advertising Studies

however the love for horses won the battle with science and

later in life, she became an equestrian coach herself. After

arriving in Canada, being in an equestrian environment was an

obvious choice as a continuum of her carrier. She earned the

title of Equestrian Competition Coach in the next few years.

Unfortunately, due to the live events in 2017, she was forced

to give up on her carrier. This is when her passion for painting

started to develop. As not able to being among horses anymore

Asha started creating them for herself. Driven by forceful

sorrow and longing Asha’s drawings and painting became a

new passion. She puts all her love and devotion into her new

obsession - visual arts.
