The Girl Next Door Charcoal/Acrylic on Canvas with Walnut Branches 74.4" x 49.2" x 20" Andreea Anghel Cluj-Napoca, Romania http://cigaro.carbonmade.com BIO: I am currently 23 and as of October 2011 I am studying for my Bachelor's Degree in Graphics at UAD Cluj-Napoca, Romania / ASP Wroclaw, Poland. I'm a visual artist who manipulates photos, paints and draws on various surfaces with all kinds of materials. Recently I've started creating installations as well. Notable Exhibitions: Damned II & III, Detroit, USA (2009 and 2010) - group exhibition "I am Abnormal" - Group Exhibition, Berlin, Germany (2009) Damaged People - Cluj-Napoca, Romania (2011) - Solo Exhibition Human Being (The places of presence) - Venice, Italy (2011) - Group exhibition Crucifiction of Modern Man - Cluj-Napoca, Romania (2011) - Solo exhibition Publications: nEgoist’s “Obscene seduction” art book (2010, Poland) George Canon’s “175 photographers” contemporary art book (2010) Datacolor’s “Colors of my life” art book (2009) ABOUT THE ART/SERIES: “Damaged People” is a series of 6 installations created between January-June of 2011, in Cluj-Napoca, Romania and Wroclaw, Poland. The artworks presented include close friends and well-known models. I chose models in contrast to relatively unknown people because anybody can be famous, anybody can be damaged, no matter how good their life is. The five characters represented have a strong, even contagious sexuality, as they are a result of our modern society, which inevitably revolves around sex. Through these works I am questioning who and what we perceive as damaged, because apparently it may happen to anyone, regardless of background or current situation, and whether or not they’re actually damaged, or we just choose to question this based on what we think happens inside them. People transform their bodies in sync with what they’re going through inside. When they exceed socially-accepted limits, they become damaged in the eyes of others, but also interesting to a few who are open-minded. The artworks question making yourself accepted in a society that sees you as (mentally) damaged: being borderline anorexic, having most of your body covered with tattoos, visually exposing what you believe in, trying to be something you’re not, or maybe trying to show people what you really are and, because of this excessive sincerity, people reject you. Regarding the installation itself, the need for branches is supported by wanting to project the inner self of my models outside of the canvas in an expansive and interactive way. I am trying to express the rebirth of a generation, of something new, and I want the public to take part in it by feeling a strong connection to the artworks presented, to the fact that they break the barrier between what’s depicted in two dimensions and what people see as their three-dimensional continuity. The technique used, a loosely realistic charcoal drawing on canvas, is in opposition to the raw branches, and the characters’ interaction with them suggest borderline reality, questioning what we perceive as real (the drawings or their 3d projection and continuity). Ice Cream Packages Tower Stained Paper with Mixed Media 23.6" x 15.74" x 33.46" Takanori Aiba Tokyo, Japan http://www.tokyogoodidea.com Takanori Aiba was born in 1953 in Yokohama, Japan. Studied Japanese traditional textiles and dyed clothing in Tokyo Zokei University. Built a first career as a freelance maze illustrator since 1978. His maze works were serialized in “POPYE”, Japanese fashion magazine for 10 years. Founded his own company,”Graphics and Designing Inc.”, in 1981. Expand a range of his career to a concept maker and art director for architectural spaces. Total production of “Shin Yokohama Chinese Noodle Museum”, “Muse Du Petit Prince De Saint Exupery A Hakone”, “NINJA AKASAKA“ were one of his major works.Since, 2003, He put his mind to create three dimensional art works which combines his knowledge and experience of both maze illustrator and architect. On September, 2010, He had a solo exhibition, “Adventures of the Eyes” at Kakiden Gallery, Tokyo Japan with his works. Kazuko Todate, Art Critic, talks about our exhibition, *1 Works are created through Aiba’s extraordinary fantastic and sometimes even chimerical imaginations. However, they do not look like pipe dreams. In fact people believe that they are real buildings and spaces because Aiba depicts not only the outline but also all of the elaborate details in each works. Though the paintings are flat and two-dimensional, Aiba creates images of the side, back, and even the inside of the buildings. Aiba’s eyes circle around, and sometimes intentionally wander between buildings in the space. His eyes are like those of a bird or like those of wind.” *2 If you explore any small part of Aiba’s works, you find amazing stories and some unique characters. Those works are not just imaginary compositions; it is indeed possible to construct the amusement parks. Murakami, who makes Aiba’s models, is also a civil engineer. He is a realist sharing dreams with Aiba. The early bonsai-type models look like bonsai art. Bonsai reflect the Japanese traditional aesthetic sense of expressing the magnificence of nature in a small potted plant. However, the density of decoration and the rich stories of Aiba’s works contain extraordinary times and spaces which differ from the bonsai world determined by plants physiology. *1*2 “Adventures of the Eyes: AIBA Takanori’s Aesthetics of Space Creation, KAZUKO TODATE, Art Critic” AWARDS 2011-Hong Kong Design Award’ 11 ”Bonsai-B” 2005-Japan Display Design Association Award/ Display Design Award ”Doutonbori Shoutengai” 2002-Hong Kong Design Award’02 “NINJA AKASAKA” 1995-New York ADC Award ’95 ”Shinyokohama Chinese Noodle Museum” 1992-New York ADC Award International “Unix CI design” SOLO EXHIBITIONS 2011-solo exhibition “Adventures of the Eyes”- Kakiden Gallery, Shinjuku, Tokyo 1980-solo exhibition “Maze Metamorphosize”-Sapporo, Kazazawa 1979-solo exhibition “Maze Metamorphosize”- AXIS Gallery, Roppongi,Tokyo PUBLICATIONS 2010-Tokyo Good Idea Development Institute-Nikkei Publishing Inc. 1992-Takanori Aiba’s Maze World -Shin- Hyoron Publication 1992-Maze Metamorphosize <Series of World Masterpieace>, Shin-Hyoron Publication LECTURES 2010-Musashino Art University, School of industrial, interior, and craft design, Tokyo, Japan 2008-Nihon Kogakuin College, Tokyo, Japan Mona Akbari Kashan, Iran email@example.com George Barecca Brooklyn, NY http://www.georgebarecca.com/Gallery_Main.htm Boy in the Chicken Mask Oils on Canvas 64" x 48" Michael Ward Costa Mesa, CA http://www.tmichaelward.com/michaelwardartist.htm Beautify Your City Acrylic on Canvas 24" x 30" Joan Lamb Midland City, AL Joanlamb001@gmail.com Oyster Lunch on Dock Acrylic 28" x 20" Origins Joe Walsh Aerosal & Acrylic Montclair, CA 26" x 36" http://www.facebook.com/JoeDedArt Mari Yamagiwa Kyoto, Japan http://mariyamagiwa.web.fc2.com Do You Have to Return?

The increased number of sells in famous international auctions is proof of this point. Iranian art entered a new phase of presenting the works of its visual artists to the world after the commencement of first Christieâ€™s institute auction in its Emirates branch and also with the increased interest of other international auctions in Middle Eastern art. For the first few years most of the clientele of these auctions had mostly been Iranian and Arab buyers, but gradually new audiences from all over the world were added to the previous list of buyers. We have also seen an increased presence of Iranian visual artists in established European and American museums and galleries. This fact verifies the increased interest of the world in Iranian art. On the other hand if we consider the current situation of art in Iran, we undoubtedly will encounter some difficulties and insufficiencies. Among these problems we can mention a lack of systematic introduction of young artists, limitations in freely and desirable presenting artistic productions, the low cost that is paid for buying these works. Image and imagination is an artistic group which started its work in 2011 with the aim of introducing the works of Iranian artists to the world. The primary goal of this group is to compensate for the lack that exists in terms of introducing domestic artists and sale of the works and ultimately it strives to establish a place for talented artists in the international community. In this edition of Artist Portfolio Magazine the works of several Iranian artists have been published. The works of a group of young artists who have achieved their special grammar and are currently looking for further grow and develop their art.

Ioneʼs artistic expression, creativity, and passion for communication have resulted in numerous awards for her painting, sculpture, mixed media, and assemblage. Her work has also been featured in several important publications. Ione maintains an extensive exhibition schedule in juried, non-juried, and invitational arts venues. “Ione Citrin is one of the most dedicated artists of our day, painting, sculpting and mixing media with delightful abandon. She turns out piece after piece, and the work has a purity of expression that is rare in an artist that is as eclectic herself.” DATE \@ "MMMM d, yyyy" September 9, 2011Marjorie Kaye, Director – Caladan Gallery, Beverly, MA “Thank you for submitting your work to Montserrat College of Art Gallery. In reviewing your works it is apparent that your creative energy knows no boundary. Your courageous experimentation with a variety of techniques and styles is a testament to your devotion to the arts. I was most impressed with your mixed-media work, which provides the viewerwith the opportunity to enter and explore the environments youʼve created.” Leonie Bradbury, Director/Curator-Montserrat College of Art Galleries. Thank you for your gentle spirit and wonderful talent. I loved your painting in the current show in Korea Town. Thank you for the beautiful catalogue. Your work is amazing. I think you are the most diversified artist that I have ever met. Have a beautiful week. You are an artist who has no fear of any medium. Never change.” – Tony Clark/Affinity Gallery, West Hollywood, CA.. I am simply amazed at the work you have done. I believe that art is everything. It's a gateway to higher consciousness. It's a statement about who we are as human beings, it's a look into our own subconscious mind, a direct expression of our souls. I have a slogan I came up with called "Life is Art!" I truly believe that Life IS an art and the Creator of all is the master artist. It is infinitely creative and infinitely beautiful. Have a great day! James A.

Mon univers de création s’exprime à travers une écriture empruntée au monde du design graphique et puise son inspiration dans la photographie. Retouchant, déstructurant les images, je les décompose pour mieux les recomposer à ma façon. Analysant l’ombre et la lumière à l’aide de lignes, trames ou motifs, j’élabore des textures et des brosses, disposant ainsi d’une inépuisable palette d’outils de création que j’utilise comme un pinceau sur la toile pour créer des nuances et enrichir la composition de subtiles touches de couleurs et de formes. Je travaille simultanément détail et vue d’ensemble, créant ainsi des oeuvres complexes dont la perception change selon notre éloignement du tableau. Ce qui parait monochrome dans une lecture globale est en réalité composé d’une multitude de petits éléments ou de lignes qui oeuvrent comme des pigments macroscopiques incitant à s’approcher du tableau, à entrer dans l’mage pour se perdre dans les détails. De l’atome à l’univers, tout ce qui nous entoure est le résultat d’un assemblage d’éléments plus petits. Ce que l’on croit lisse apparaît rugueux sous le microscope, ce que l’on voit uniforme est hétérogène, tout est une question d’échelle. Comme un voyage dans le microcosme, je réalise des oeuvres offrant plusieurs niveaux de lecture, pour qu’audelà des apparences, on découvre les pierres de l’édifice. De 1986 à 1998 : Vit à Paris. Etudie à lʼENSAD puis travaille en tant que maquettiste volume, designer et graphiste en agence sur des projets dʼaménagement dʼespaces muséographiques et expositions temporaires. Réalise et met au point un système utilisant lʼimage vidéo incrustée dans un décor miniature en volume - travaille sur le scénario, conçoit et réalise les décors (installations à la Tour Eiffel, événement Chanel au Printemps, magasin Sephora). 1998: Quitte Paris pour sʼinstaller en tant que graphiste indépendant dans le Haut-Doubs. Multiplie lʼutilisation de la photographie et le travail de lʼimage dans ses créations, réalise de nombreux reportages photographiques dans le cadre de ses projets et pour son travail personnel. Au travers de ses projets, il développe son style graphique, associant photo, typographie et recherches graphiques. Conjointement à son travail professionnel, il utilise lʼoutil informatique pour sʼexprimer au travers de compositions numériques personnelles. 2005: Il travaille sur le traitement vectoriel de lʼimage. Une technique qui permet de générer des motifs géométriques dont la taille et la forme varient en fonction de lʼombre et de la lumière du sujet.

Leppanen's interest in physics, the universe and the unknown is depicted in his large abstract paintings. He says "In my experimental art, I take ideas, thoughts, colors, action, materials - add energy and let the paint flow. I attempt to direct its interaction with the forces of nature creating texture and depth that encourages viewers to travel in their minds.” His materials used for art can be found in nature, aside the road or from discarded materials...a sort of upcycling. Eric loves discarded paraphernalia – giving it a new life and purpose. After 16 years working in the corporate world...banking, finance, budgeting and reporting...I was “released” or laid off. I really look at it as if I were released from a prison like world where my life was “ones and zeros”, “black and white” and “accuracy and attention to detail”. After leaving I felt this inner urge to paint with pure energy flow from within. I have never felt more fulfilled in my exsistence then the last two years. I get to paint and create and also run a business. While in school I always dreamed of creating a product and bringing it to market. Art has allowed me to fill both of those goals. My work over the last three years has been composed mainly of recycled materials. I find my paint and accessories aside the road that people discard or in old barns and basements that I clean out. A majority of my canvas, board, media and frames are made or recovered from discarded paraphernalia. I hope my work connects with you and inspires thoughts and emotion. Leppanen says that painting creates a peaceful balance in his life that he will continue to embrace and explore. He lives in Belfast near friends, family and with his wife Linda and two amazing children Brogan and Zepherin. They drive everything he does! Leppanen has been sharing his work at galleries, schools, and businesses in the Mid-Coast, Portland, Brunswick and Bangor, Maine. He is currently represented by Asymmetricks Arts in Rockland with a current Holiday show. Leppanen's work is in private collections and he was recently involved in a creative arts experiment “Resisting Entropy” with Asymmetrick Arts, creating an installation piece using all found materials.

Indebted States of America - Plastic, Paint and Quarters - 30" x 40" Transition Reclaimed Paint on Canvas 36" x 48" I am an "action painter" letting the nature of the medium take over, add energy, and try to orchestrate a constellation of effects with paint. I look out to the evening sky, often sitting by a small fire or at the ocean edge, my mind opens and energy for creating grows. I appreciate the lucid beauty of nature, it's imagery created both in precision and serendipity. I hope my work connects with you and inspires thoughts and emotion. â€œWhen I am dead and gone my energy will be frozen in time - here...there...somewhere...â€? - Eric Leppanen Cleopatra Griffin email@example.com Anne Labovitz - Sage II www.labovitz.com Todd Siegel - What Are We Comparing? http://www.toddsiegelart.com Crow Megan Steele - Loss of Equilibrium firstname.lastname@example.org Mark Ross - Float in Time http://www.markfighterross.com Joseph Jusinski - Shenco Susan Toler - Glorious Song http://josephjusinski.com http://www.susantoler.com Nancy Richmond - Confidence Kristine Synowka - Edge of Inspiration http://www.nancyrichmondphotography.com http://www.ninthrunswild.com John Pompeo - The Edge http://www.JohnPompeo.com Scott Sesko - As the Duck Swims http://500px.com/ssesko Lesley Rutherford - Sincere Gifts: Chinatown, Los Angeles http://www.lesleypaige.etsy.com Brian Parker - A Toast http://brian-parker.artistwebsites.com Richard Lund - Distant Gray Bryana Zurad - Beautiful Tragedy Richie_Lund@yahoo.com email@example.com Queen City Dreaming Hasaan Kirkland http://kairosindustry.com Classic Vanessa Wiggins - All Roads Lead to Isis Steven Sewell - Johna http://halophotography.com.au http://stevensewellart.com Rachel Mosey - Self Portrait Bruce White - Pynq http://www.rachelmosey.com firstname.lastname@example.org Rebekah Foord - Born This Way http://rebekahfoord.com Heidi Cowgill - Numbers http://www.facebook.com/HeidisPaintBrush Richard A.

Growing up in an unstable, abusive home, she found comfort in drawing. When her mother left her abusive father and raised her as a latchkey child, her passion for art kept her company and gave her self confidence. “I remember as a little girl entering an art contest that I heard about on the radio. It was for an orange drink. I drew this picture of an orange with big lips, and when they announced I had won on the radio, I was overwhelmed.” Ironically, later when Stacia’s mother left her abusive relationships to focus on raising Stacia and her brother, she had to fight yet another battle with cancer and lost. Stacia’s mother died at the age of 37. At 18 years-old, Stacia found herself alone again but this time she had to also take care of her little brother. Aside from working to support her brother and herself, Stacia found solace in studying art design at the local community college. Art was always there to take care of her when no one else could. With so much darkness in her young years, Stacia says she tries to show the bright side of life in her work. “I love color and use it as much as possible. I’m very spiritual. I look at everything in life with color like the energy of the sun --the strongest form of light. I love to reflect the sunlight on glass or water and create images. It fills up my soul and I get lost in it. I can do it forever. I hope my art triggers an emotion and a sense of well being. I hope my work inspires and brings that energy to others when they see it. I hope to generate that spiritual feeling so that they can go into their world and maybe carry some of that positive light or energy with them for the rest of their day.” Today, Stacia’s family life is stable with a supportive husband and two teenage sons. For the last 20 years she has kept up her passion of art with projects for her son’s schools and various home productions. Now that her sons are older, she can finally focus on her art. Last year she started buying canvases and painting seriously. By May she was showing her work at The Happening Gallery in Marina Del Rey. By the end of 2011, her photography was being shown in the Los Angeles Center for Digital Arts. She has continued to win more awards across the country including first place in Art Scene Today for her acrylic painting of a piece appropriately titled “Spiritual Sky.” Statement; The soul of a child is a precious thing. It can absorb all the light that it form and transcend it into a journey of great joy. But when the soul has no light to absorb it will breakdown and the journey is dark and lonely. As the soul develops it learns that it is very powerful. It takes the dark canvas and splashes it with light and color, creating the journey it needs. â€œIt is through light we find our spirituality, and it is key to a peaceful journey.â€?

She met her husband, Robert, in high school and they married in 1981. They moved to Los Angeles that same year and Christie began her formal art instruction at a private art school called Mission: Renaissance. Christie has always been interested in creating and has done so since she was old enough to pick up a crayon. Her parents were very proud of her talent but did not have the funding for an art education so they bought her an art course from a T.V. commercial. Christie passed with flying colors! Christieʼs husband was a tad more generous and agreed to fund her education at Mission: Renaissance. She received excellent instruction under the guidance of Mr. Larry Gluck. Along with her private instruction Christie has completed many college courses in the arts from Fulton College, Glendale College in Los Angeles and College of DuPage in Illinois. She has complimented her formal training with a variety of seminars, workshops and panel discussions on every subject from “How to take slides of your artwork” to “How to sell your art out of a tent”. During her education her artwork continued to change and grow from reality based art to abstract. In the midst of all the art schooling and creating Christie and her husband had two children; the artwork slowed a little but never stopped. They continued to raise their children and Christie continued create and participate in shows both locally in California and nationally. In 1990 Christie and her family moved to Chicago. She promptly joined the Chicago Artists Coalition and The Arts Alliance and began to show her work throughout the city and suburbs. She has been in several gallery stables, Gallery 500, the Blue Mule Gallery and Gallery Atlantis to name a few. Christieʼs children are now completing their college educations (one in the arts) and are on their way to becoming selfsufficient adults. She is the proud owner of three English Bulldogs, two of them are certified therapy dogs, she and her Bulldogs work all over the city helping 2 and 3 grade children improve their reading skills through SITSTAYREAD and helping the mentally and physically handicapped children and adults use their minds and their bodies to work with animals and make their lives a little better. This is accomplished through Rainbow Animal Assisted Therapy. Christie donates up to four pieces of artwork each year to her favorite organizations, including Treehouse Animal Foundation, NOW, Rainbow and a variety of other worthy organizations who might be having a silent auction to raise money for their cause. nd rd Christieʼs family resides in the South Loop of Chicago and Grant Park is her dogsʼ back yard. Her studio is in her living room, spreading throughout the house. She works with oils and acrylics on canvas and is quite prolific as well as inquisitive and moves forward with her art by striving to become more creative and original with each new series. Her paintings fully occupy her time and she works hard to produce art that speaks about her own acknowledgements on life.
