Thomas Oscar Miles

My art looks to inspire self empowerment, through embracing

our vulnerabilities. This is celebrated through fragile and

detailed imagery, centred around the narratives. In my work,

I talk about personal fears and darker experiences. I give my

characters opportunities to wear these like a crown. How can

we appreciate our light when we brush the darkness under the

bed, ignored? I hope that my work can show people how multi-layered

each one of us is, showing a unity in our humanity.

I talk in my work about personal experiences such as mental

health and my ever-growing relationship with my autism. I

choose to represent these in my work through visuals such as

decay, bones, and shadow filled corners of a woodland. My

new series ‘Our Beautiful Demise’ speaks on a similar theme:

wearing our fears with pride, binding them tightly to our flesh.

I have grown up fearful of my personal shadows, I now instead

hope to educate others on this and create a platform to spotlight

issues we all go through.

Gisseline Amiuny

Gisseline was born in Caracas, Venezuela. She studied architecture

for two years, and made some works of art, design and

decoration, including jewelry design.

His most recent stage begins in 2010, where he begins his

research work on geometric and kinetic art, the relationship of

the works with natural light being very important and mostly

with the use of RGB LED lighting, using programmed electronic

controls and specifically developed by the artist, to have precise

control of colors and sequences.

She describes her work: “I can express myself as an artist

through lines, curves and geometric shapes. I get inspired

when I experiment with light, shadows and reflections that

produce geometric shapes interacting with materials”.

The artist created her own artistic language within the field

of kineticism, for which her work was included within the

Neo-Kineticism current, during her participation in “Lumiere et

Mouvement”, Denise René-Rive Espace Marais Gallery, Paris,

France, 2016.

@veronika_sekotova

“I shut my eyes in order to see”

The author of this wisdom is one of my favourite artists, the

French painter Paul Gauguin. I have yet to discover a more brilliant

one. Art has been part of life since prehistoric times and,

with me, since my early childhood. I discovered the beauty and

power of art, especially fine art, from a very early age.

When I was at high school, I fell in love with art history, which I

decided to combine with studying tourism.

Thanks to work and having a family, art soon turned into an

occasional hobby. Now art is firmly back in my life as a means

to express myself and relax. I am constantly trying to develop a

relationship with visual art and the whole field of visual culture,

so I can perceive the beauty of nature and the aesthetic values

in what is happening around us. As I believe that a creative

outlook enriches our lives immensely, my aim is to promote

creativity not only in the field of fine arts but also in my entire

way of thinking. Painting is my joy, pleasure, relaxation and

helps me express my feelings. I like to try new techniques,

but mostly I work with acrylic paints on canvas. I don’t have a

favourite style, because I find “my thing” ...

Aaron Santos Boyd-Rochman

I am almost entirely self-taught except for a few public school

art classes and art institutions in adolescence. My work is an

exploration and coalescing of who I am as an artist and as a

person. Learning to be comfortable with uncertainty is my goal

both as an artist and as a human moving through this world.

I love the multiple dualities my work evokes:stillness and

movement, structure and entropy, order and chaos, solace

and uncertainty, natural objects created from human-made

ones. My creative process leads to the organic forms my work

evokes. I use discarded and overlooked objects and transform

them into something beautiful, unexpected, and fun - I make

art stuff from other stuff.

Davide Sannino

@davidethepainter

Born in Peschiera del Garda (Verona) – Italy - on July 12, 1968.

Died in June 2020.

Art has always been with him since his childhood and released

during the hardest time of his life.

As a child, while recovering from a serious illness he started

drawing using a pencil or a charcoal and, after having emerged

victorious from this battle, he expressed his Hymn to Life also

through canvas and colors.

His style, typically figurative, is represented in modern paintings

made in acrylic to give emphasis and vitality to the subjects.

Sometimes his creations differ completely from reality,

with a peculiar and highly imaginative view, special prospective

and colored effects perceptible in the pursuit of lights and

shadow contrasts.

He always proposes to the public a new vision of his paintings

facing innovative and multi-faceted/stylized compositions.

This will make him immortal through the amazement in the

eyes of people watching and appreciating his paintings looking

at images conveying strength and intensity of the lines, sensitivity

and charm of the subjects, happiness of colors.

Bella Nunn

Bella Nunn is a British contemporary textiles designer. Living in

Norfolk, she specialises in weave and sustainable textiles. The

qualities of natural fibres inspire her honest weaves, influenced

by seasonal landscapes and uplifting tones. Her practice

conveys the charm in imperfections and the responsibility to

campaign for biodegradable materials. Natural materials and

traditional hand-weaving techniques are brought together in

her contemporary designs and evoke tactility in the nature of

each thread. From graduating from Norwich University of the

Arts, she now works on an old wooden loom, innovating dyes

and sourcing uniquely spun fibres. The connections between

the land and our lives can be sensed through a visual language

of storytelling and placemaking. Her self-initiated projects

hope to raise awareness for the environmental devastations in

the textile industry and realise the potential to minimise waste

through a soil-to-soil practice.

@abstractblue1

I’m an abstract expressionist painter, with great sensitivity,

who creates works by bending reality and sometimes even

touching on irrationality. On canvas, I expresses my subjective

point of view of things, people and the world.

My motto ‘Everything that is not obvious is exciting’.

I use colour and form to express a taste of a moment and

feelings .

I’m self-taught artist I lived in London for almost 30 years .I

owe my experience and love for painting to my mother, Anna,

artist and painter. Enchanted by my mothers world of exhibitions

and painting, it was thanks to her that I developed

my passion for fine arts. In late 90 I was more in to the music

creation , Than only in around 2004 I felt more towards Fine

art and decided to switch directions .

I believe I have an increased sensitivity to emotional or social

stimuli , all is related deeper in Quantum states within , I believe

we can translate Quantum process and receive information’s

, Through perceptive -conscious state of mind and

combine those to get the right outcome ,

For me that translation is Colour and form on my Canvas.

Courtney MacIsaac

Courtney MacIsaac is a contemporary artist born in Ontario,

Canada. She was accepted and graduated from art school, apprenticed

under an established artist which helped her sharpen

her skills in graphite, ink, and oil painting.

While working tirelessly to hone her technique, her emotionally

charged paintings have been the subject to group exhibitions

throughout Canada, United States, the UK and Europe.

She is inspired by artists such as Rembrandt and Caravaggio

for realism in their art, Dali for illusion, dream, and imagination,

and Banksy for pointing out the absurdity in the world.

Her art relates to the constant battle that hinders us from making

decisions, the feelings of conflict captured into fear, anger,

confusion, and loneliness.

Courtney is able to translate her experiences through her realistic

paintings by using elements of art and principles of design

to create feeling, emotion, and to challenge the viewer.

Artist from Minsk. Participant of exhibitions and open call in

England, Switzerland, Italy.

She has learned to paint on her own.

She paints in her signature style, using classic paintbrushes and

palette knives.

The basis of her work can be called the desire to express her

feelings on canvas.

With the help of color and shape she conveys subtle and

invisible connections that appear in the first sketches and are

already fully revealed in the finished work.

“Dreams give us the ability to go beyond the limits of our own

consciousness. The beauty of nature is a source of emotions

that gives inspiration and becomes the basis for creative ideas,

unity and harmony.”

@helga.sherr

I am Olga Shermachkova (Helga Sherr)

I am from Russia and I am an experimenter watercolor artist.

I have two art degrees and I am the winner of many art competitions.

My story began 5 years ago. When my daughter bought a

ferry ticket for 0.06$. I didn’t believe that it can be possible,

but something forced me to join this adventure. Well, it was

the first time when I saw Norway and Denmark. And it was an

amazing experience. New culture, new places, new thoughts.

The beauty of this world inspired me to visit a lot of new

countries. So I visited 20 countries in only 5 years. And every

new place left an indelible mark in my memory and my life

turned upside down. Since then I understood that I want to

share these wonderful moments with people and so I started

to paint.

I like watercolor. I like its unpredictability. I like to play with

colors and shapes. I think that painting should have its own

meaning for everyone. Art should make you think and lead to

new discoveries.

Veronika Weberová

Veronika Weberová 1987 (Slovakia)

She studied Didactics of Art Education of Comenius University

in Bratislava (SK), where she received her PaedDr. and PhD.

During her studies she focused on painting techniques and

their use in school.

She works with the author’s modified ebru technique, painting

on the water surface. She mixes the colours herself. She

often combines abstract painting with surrealistic pen drawing,

which is created by layering lines. This type of pen-drawing

forms the second distinctive part of her artistic work.

She has exhibited in Slovakia, the Czech Republic, Italy, Austria,

Serbia, the Canary Islands and Ukraine. She was awarded the

Premio Speciale Della Critica at the XXI Premio Internationale

D’Arte San Crispino (IT) in 2019 and 2nd place for her pearl

row in the national round of the Tahitian Pearl Trophy in 2005.

She lives and works in Bratislava (SK), where she is also an art

teacher.

Will Terra

I am a 29-year-old self-taught artist, born in Brazil but currently

based in Lisbon, Portugal.

My paintings portray oneiric realities. I explore themes of

metaphysics such as existence, time, consciousness and space.

I often mix these concepts with the natural world and some

social critique. The force of chaos in the universe is an important

subject in my paintings, and this concept also influences

my method of painting which uses a certain degree of improvisation.

My main source of inspiration is the mystery of our existence

and our relationship with the universe. The fact that all things

in the universe are made of matter and nothing is eternal, is

depicted in my paintings by the strong brushwork, merging

elements, dynamic objects and fading edges.

Ulrike Gamst

Ulrike Gamst uses terms of sculpture to develop her colorbased

paintings. After her studies of sculpture in the 80ies,

painting became a possibility to continue creating and opened

a whole new world of colour. Fascinated equally by the transparency

and material of the colours in painitngs of old masters

and the huge canvases of american artists of abstract expresssionism,

having been formed as a sculptor, she understood the

canvas as an object in the space of a gallery or a museum. In

her door sized canvases she evokes the colour as a conterpart

of the viewer offering communication on an equal footing, being

literally of the same size and having the same importance.

She uses eggtempera in up to 50 layers, kind of sculpting the

substance of the colour. Because of the importance of exploring

reality, her work includes also realistic studies of figure and

anatomy in pencil and charcoal.

Olga Bonitas

Artist, illustrator, teacher.

Watercolor is my passion. The watercolor process is always

improvisation. It is an unpredictable and almost uncorrected

medium. Sometimes it takes several attempts to achieve the

desired effect. While painting I feel that I have a co-author:

the result depends not only on me but also on the behavior of

paints.

That’s why watercolor illustrations are so fresh and delightful.

They remain popular and in demand despite the widespread of

digital art.

Tending to realism I love to add something unusual and unexpected

in my illustrations.

I tell stories through my paintings. And believe that art is powerful

and makes the world a better place.

I’ve studied art throughout high school and college alongside

photography and pottery. At 17 I moved to Cyprus and studied

at the Cyprus college of art in Limassol. After that I graduated

from the school of life! I became a mum, started working and

built my world and family. Now in my 30’s I’m finally having an

opportunity to start doing what I love again. I’m blessed to live

in a rural town in Staffordshire and there is no end of inspiration.

I have no specific style I just love to create, by any means

Donna Dent

I am a Designer who loves to paint, with a background in

textile design and yarn technology, providing the inspiration

behind most of my paintings.

Textiles to me, are remarkable, and my ambivalence towards a

digital future has me creating paintings that represent digital

textiles whilst remaining completely analogue. I like to push

the boundaries of what I can achieve using paint and resin to

create layering and give real depth to my painting. I like to use

florescent colour and textures finished with a glass like surface

of resin that produces a slightly 3D effect.

I studied Textile Design at Huddersfield University and prior to

that, I went to Bath Academy of Art.

Dominique Zuber

My name is Dominique Zuber and I live with my two kids in

Switzerland.

With 16 I began my artwork to express myself, to get in touch

with my soul and my feelings. I was influenced by Basquiat and

Picasso.

There is nothing more fulfilling for me then to get in the flow

state. It is the best therapie I‘ ve known.

5 years ago I started to have some private lessons with the

great artist Eva Pospisil.

She learned me a lot and always convinced myself in believing

in the process and in me.

To be in touch with the colours, to try, to explore new things,

to use my hands and my heart- and not the brain, listen to good

music like David Bowie, Placebo or Florence and the Machine,

takes me to an inner world, that is hard to describe… but hopefully

to feel in my works..

I could not imagine a world without.

Without creativity the soul is dying.

Caitlin Smith

@thenortherngoth

Caitlin is a multidisciplinary surrealist completing her master’s

degree at the University of Sunderland. Working with a plethora

of mediums, Smith favours relief printmaking processes

& painting, acrylic being her preferred choice. At present, her

practice explores the figurative narrative of the internalised

femme fatale conjuring fragmented paintings and prints.

She strives to eradicate the unspoken autocracy and biased

attitudes implemented within both society & the Arts, alongside

prioritising inclusivity, and representation. Smith visually

transcribes an outrageous oeuvre displaying themes of politics,

societal taboos, and conflict.

Referring to the theory demonstrated by poststructuralism,

Caitlin’s practice confronts the notion of gender biases and

stereotypes. She creates works that shift the objectification of

women and marginalised genders onto men, conveying a reciprocated

image that depicts the man as the subject of societal

standards and scrutiny. Smith celebrates women’s bodies as

they are, rather than the subject of degradation and sexualisation.

Amanda Kessaris (2001) is a Danish-American artist with roots

in California but currently living and studying art in Aarhus,

Denmark. Though previously identifying as primarily a painter,

Kessaris has in recent years begun incorporating various artistic

disciplines in her work to convey a shared theme. Through

translating her 2-D works into films, photography, or performance,

she uses medium as language to bring her work to life

in a way that can be experienced and understood in different

contexts. Her work investigates gender roles and expectations

both in terms of behavior and appearance, as well as comments

on a culture where the body is a blank canvas that lies in the

field of tension between something natural and something

assumed.

“Painting and drawing made me fall in love since I was little

in Seville. Light, color, perspective, composition have always

attracted me.

I took painting and drawing courses at an Art School in Paris,

and in addition I prepared the title of Graphic Designer where I

learned and perfected digital creation.

I like both traditional art and digital art. In fact, as a result of

these studies, I often make original creations as a result of of

amazing mixes of my paintings, watercolours, India inks and

charcoal drawings with Photoshop.

I try to reflect in my works what I see around me: a gesture,

a landscape, a look, a smile… A beautiful photograph can also

inspire me. Reflect environments, shapes, colors, light, character,

looks, feelings, impressions.”

Marina Ogai

She was born on April 3, 1993. Originally from Moscow, Russia,

and currently living and working in Gwangju, South Korea).

Drawing has always been a passion of Marina’s for a big part of

her life. She began with oil painting technique at the age of 15.

Being an artist had been her dream since childhood.

Marina Ogai is a Koryo Saram (also known as Goryeoin or

Koryoin), one of the descendants of Koreans who emigrated

by and large from the northern part of the Korean Peninsula to

eastern Russia between the late 19th and the early 20th century.

In 1937, such ethnic Koreans were forcibly relocated by the

Stalin regime en masse to present-day Central Asia.

That is why the theme of her work is korean woman in all

his beauty. She is inspired by strong woman, Korean culture,

flowers and nature. Marina is a sincerely believer that there’s

an deep bond between a woman and nature. The main idea

behind Marina’s paintings is to show asian people inner beauty

and character.

Myrzakhmetov Marat

My mission as an artist share your feelings with the whole

world!

He graduated from a higher educational institution, specializing

in teaching fine arts and drawing. For a long time he worked in

the field of graphic design.

Moving to a resort town by the sea forced me to return to the

questions of my creative realization and allowed me to concentrate

only on my work. Starting to draw some new work, it is

impossible to predict what it will be like. I just sit down, turn on

the music, take a blank sheet of paper, a pen and get to work,

never knowing what it will be and in what material, an irresistible

desire to express my thoughts and feelings through art. The

complexity of the images and the originality of the technique

of performance allows you to move up the creative ladder,

moving away from the usual standards and stereotypes. For

me, as an artist, graphic art seems simple and complex at the

same time. It seems to me very interesting to look for and find

the line between black and white, adding a little red to it.

Vanessa Wenwieser

Vanessa Wenwieser’s work places the female into the centre of

her imagination, she liberates them from the typical male gaze

and brings her female perspective to the forefront.

In her artworks, women are seen as beings with minds, emotions

and intuitively powerful. Using the figure and allusive

storytelling elements Wenwieser examines the gap between

appearance and being.

Feelings are exhibited naked and vulnerable, she explores them

in an imaginative and beautiful way, trying to make people see

the transcendent.

Her aim is to pull the viewer inside her pictures to make them

inhabit her otherworldly depictions.

These artworks, show what particular transformative emotions

and feelings could look like. Be it love, metamorphosis, imagination,

healing, regaining lost strength and the afterlife.

Wenwieser uses space to create feeling of the sublime, when

describing strong emotional places of the soul.

tragic losses in less than a year that I dedicated myself to art

(outside of my day job). Whilst working through my grief in

front of a canvas I discovered my passion and stepped into

my purpose. Every piece is revealed in the moment, evolving

spontaneously and organically with each stroke of the brush

(or comb, or shower squeeze or de-icer tool…..whatever is on

hand can be part of the creative process). My work has been

displayed in two London galleries and my creative vision has

led to a devoted international clientele.

Holly Davis

Holly wavers through digital and physical realms, allowing her

to try and merge the two worlds together. This is due to how

the natural self is constantly questioned by the digital persona

she may constitute online. The new rapid growth in this cyberspace

world brings into question whether there is a crossover

between the two, a connection between the programmed self

and the subconscious. With an interest in digital aesthetics,

this is explored through manipulated digital image creation,

presenting the distorted perception she has of herself through

the selfie culture and creative computing (Augmented Reality

and Artificial intelligence), which is later further manipulated

using traditional methods (acrylic paint). Her identity or “identities”

are presented through layering showing the complexity of

the self.

Holly is a multimedia artist currently based in London. Her

practice has begun looking at immersion as a way of inclusivity

to get others to self-reflect on themselves too.
