Hello frends! I am an artist. My roots take place in St.Petersburg, which has great architecture, culture and history that influenced me once and forever. Today, in the times of technical progress, mass production and new artificial materials I search for inspiration in the foundation of the Arts - old Russian Orthodox icons, Renaissance and folk cultures. I seek out look for new shapes and images within my themes using different materials, but my favorite is glass for its plasticity and abi... [more]
As we flock around her right after our final MA Visual Arts First Year Juries and I request some time for an interview as directed by my professor Sir Quddus Mirza (Editor of ArtNow), there is a yes and a no in the answer that I get. The word enigmatic is a constant in all the published material that I’ve read about Sumaya Durrani in my humble quest to know a bit about her and we, the visual arts Master's students frozen in the space of her eloquence, are proof that it’s true.
Recently exhibited at Harlem School of the Arts' freshly renovated Gallery Space, Fabiola Jean-Louis' Rewriting History is an interdisciplinary series that serves up a ride through antiquity and imagination. Modern period dresses, fashioned almost entirely from paper, become actors in a photographic essay that challenges notions of reality, time and space. Visual, sculptural and performative at once, the artist creates a world that embodies an alternate past where people of color might have live... [more]

I love the beauty of the exquisite line, elegant composition, the artist touch and the rapture of the stroke of the pen or brush. It is the love that inspires me to become excited by a strong emotion and to try to move through it to this place of the universal understanding and freedom I bring to the viewer. [more]

Plastic Painting is the name I have given to my 3D painting process in solid acrylic. I developed the process of filling moulds with acrylic paint (of my own making) whilst working on a large-scale commission last year. My current residency at Goldfinger Factory, in Trellick Tower, enabled me to develop the process further to accurately recreate sections of the building's damaged concrete. After much material research and experimentation, I can successfully 'build' exposed aggregate concrete sl... [more]
I reorganized my paints yesterday after fervent months in the studio painting the work for Mystery Train. Tubes of oil paint squeezed into empty twisted shells and stray caps marked only by a tell tale ring of color were discarded. Brushes, newly cleaned, stand at attention ready for new work. A clean glass palette now sits on top of a used stack of brightly daubed surfaces. Painting trains seems to bring daily reminders of change, of process, of journeys. When a train or plane turns around for i... [more]

Laila Rahman’s abode in DHA, Lahore is distinct and otherworldly – an oasis – a home – a dream – all in one. I went there some time back in the summer of 2014 and the artist and her home were both exemplars of wisdom and the ‘taste for life’...My mother always quotes these words, which she read somewhere: “If you want to know more about a person, look for the library, crockery and the garden in their home." This home was al... [more]
