I have projected frozen moments-good and bad-onto the canvas. As my style and personality matured, I traveled the world. I was born and grew up in Bulgaria, where I obtained a Bachelor's Degree from Velico Tarnovo University of Fine Art. My free spirit, and lust for discovery and exploration fueled a worl... [more]

(Image: Gyeong Yoon An,Time is on my side, 2010, carbon pencil on paper, 29.7 X 42 cm; © Gyeong Yoon An)   Gyeong Yoon An (b. Korea) In my recent work I have focused on three projects: First is a sculpture series about icons, second a drawing series as a more narrative form of my practice, and third an installation series in which I try to combine the idea of abstract and figurative image through a mixed form of sculpture, installation and painting. In my sculpture series ‘Icon _ Goddess’... [more]

(Image: Lisa Welcher, Camilla, 2010, photo-based, digitally manipulated, painted; © Lisa Welcher)   Lisa Welcher (b. Los Angeles, CA) Passion is the cornerstone of Lisa's art inspiration. A world traveler with diverse interests and a keen eye for all things that stimulate the soul, Lisa translates sight into sound and sound into image; the laughter of a young child in play, a crackling bonfire on the beach, a steamy lagoon in the Asian jungle. Lisa's art has a heartbeat that can be felt in... [more]

(Image: Fred Holle, BEHIND THE CURTAIN, 2009, free-hand airbrush with acrylic, 40 x 30 x 0 inches; © Fred Holle)   Fred Holle (b. 1931, Milwaukee, Wisconsin) I'm a figural artist of "Romantic" persuasion. I'm also a painter/printmaker who's aware that drawing is the genesis of all of my work. I constantly draw from models, partly for the great pleasure it affords but, primarily, to maintain perceptual sensitivity and to obtain fresh data to fill a mental reservoir of images that may be tapp...

(Image: Ira Upin, Strong Man Series Chapter 11 - Zero Gravity, 2012, Oil on Panel, 36"x 36";  © Ira Upin)   Ira Upin (b. 1948, Chicago, IL) The two constants in my work have been the narrative and the intensity of the visual. I want the viewer to be intoxicated  and perplexed by how I make my paintings and intrigued by the stories I am trying to tell. I’m interested in human dynamics whether they be social, political, or emotional.    In the end though it's about randomness and our inability... [more]

(Image: Rachel Williams, White Bull, 2009, monotype, ink on paper, 70 x 50 cms; © Rachel Williams)   Rachel Williams (lives in Trevi, Umbria, Italy) I create works about man and his effect on the land, the work under taken by man in order to control nature, about the seasons, perseids, nature in general (sounds naff when you write it down but in truth its quite compelling). I love the mad complexity of what I see with my eyes. In my work I regurgitate that bombardment of the senses. At ti... [more]

(Image: Philippe Sauvie, Angelina: The Ochre Nude, Technology & Digital Art, 2012; © Philippe Sauvie)   Philippe Sauvie (b. 1959, Portland, OR) Artist Philippe Sauvie engages the viewer conceptually in a multiplicity of visual approaches, connecting, sampling and tagging all manner of imagery, created, sought after and stumbled upon. He takes the position that good art can't help but be derivative yet must have its own, new identity. His images feel familiar but speak of the present and into th... [more]

Jones (b. 1973, Memphis, Tennessee) Bold energetic lines, bright colors, and interesting composition are the essentials of my work. I’m inspired by storyboard type compositions, and sketch marks which come from animation. Vibrant colors and abstract features are the other inspirational tools that come from my traditional art side. My art contains abstract forms and g... [more]

He also has a hand-drawing personal style that he loves, and one will find some of that intermixed with the photo collages. On top of that he continues to enjoy explorations in many other directions, including computer graphics, pen and ink work, and w... [more]
