Anya Anti - Brookly, NY

Anya Anti is a New York based internationally published and award winning photo artist who specializes in on-location fine art and conceptual female portraiture. Originally from Ukraine she moved to United Stated in 2014. Anya's been into photography since 2009 and as a self-taught she gained all her knowledge and inspiration through social media and online photography communities. A year-and-a-half later, she started creating fine art surrealistic female portraits, which became her preferable genre and a hallmark of her work. Installations, costumes and Photoshop manipulation help Anya to embody her fantasies into a finished piece of art. She shoots mostly with old vintage manual lenses like Helios and Petzval. Their imperfections help her be more creative and achieve that dreamy effect. As a workshop instructor, Anya has already taught in different countries. She has showcased her work at exhibitions and been published all around the globe. In 2015 she was a lucky winner of Broncolor GenNEXT sponsorship and took 2nd place at Fine Art Photography Awards Professional Fine Art category.

Sam Dolman - Chesterfield, UK

I have always been a keen artist but it wasn't until after University whilst pursuing a dull career in Accountancy that I realised my true calling. I started painting seriously when I moved to Spain. The sunsets were spectacular which I painted from a villa in the southern mountains. When I returned to England, the Peak District motivated me in a different way... One day I stumbled across some cows whilst photographing the landscape. It was my first real encounter as I leant over a fence. Soon they had all come over to give me a lick and say hello. Cows, with their intelligence and curious nature remain my favourite animals to paint to this day. Nature provides me with a constant source of inspiration. I often spend considerable time with the animals I paint; they all have unique personalities which I try to capture in oil paints. I work very slowly, my paintings are usually worked on over several months to allow drying in between different layers. Nowadays I paint entirely on wood. I use synthetic brushes, carefully blending each brushstroke into the next to create a very smooth finish.

Joshua Talbot - Los Osos, CA

From humble beginnings in Georgia, Joshua Talbott's early experiences in scenic art for film and theme parks led him to New Orleans where Josh sold paintings on Royal Street to people from all over the world. Connecting with a group of artists in an this environment resulted in a path to technical refinement. Stormy weather inspired an empty pocket trip cross country and introduced Josh to the beauty of the southwest and California. Josh lives in a small coastal California town. Audiobooks are always going while he paints, fueling an insatiable curiosity. In addition to painting, he loves his garden and can often be found afloat on the ocean. I live in a small coastal California town and my little home is my studio. Where I sit to paint there is a bookshelf of oddities looking over my shoulder. Things I have built or collected over the years, old books, rubber dinosaurs, and scraps of paper that are markers for various ideas. These are artifacts of a genuine and playful curiosity. These odds and ends in this little world of my bookshelf will sometimes fall into relationship with one another or take on a different context. I like the idea that nothing"is" on it's own but rather identity is reflected from relationship. I enjoy seeing how people tell the stories for these still life paintings and show themselves in the process. This is part of my process of rediscovery that keeps me deep in a weeds of ideation. Ideas are magic. Taking one to completion means five more knocking at your door, till eventually you just take the door off the hinges. I work hard to refine my eventually you just take the door off the hinges. I work hard to refine my humanity, pushing the envelope on sincerity and transparency.
