“THE NEW ARTIST”


BOOMER MAGAZINE | FIRST EDITION | THE NEW ARTIST In the last hundred years humankind has seen unprecedented innovations and changes- from skyscrapers to moon landing to social media to human rights to Art. In this very moment in our society everything moves really fast, time doesn’t seem sufficient anymore, artists seem to find their path much harder, the ongoing changes create a need for a continuous state of Transcendence. The aim of this publication is to find out what’s the trend in contemporary art and to create a dialogue between the artists and the viewers. Editor’s Note. As we’ve mentioned previously, the aim of this publication is to connect artists with a wider audience and to find out what’s the trend in contemporary art. While most of the art collectors are looking to invest in very established artists, buying a work of art from a not so known artist is not a bad investment at all. For this publication we have chosen Picasso as a role model so let’s have a brief look at he’s artistic development in regards to our publication. While in Paris in 1905, Picasso was no different from any other artist and most of he’s works were bought for a purely decorative purpose and not as an investment. One of this works was “Young Girl with a Flower Basket”, purchased by the young collectors Leo and Gertrude Stein for some 200 francs. Over a century later that same work was auctioned for $115 million dollars, an amount that neither Picasso or the Steins would have ever imagined and here we come to my previous remark- you can’t go wrong investing a reasonable amount of money into a work of art that you like, you will be able to enjoy something that you genuinely had a desire for and you might end up with a million dollar artwork in your collection with no effort and no major risk, something that develops on its own, purely on the artist’s own hard work and artistic development. Don’t take my word for it, let’s briefly look at some contemporary artists. Jeff Koons, works valued at some $20000 in the 80’ are now worth over 20 million dollars, the same with Damien Hirst, Andy Warhol, Jean Michel Basquiat, Tracey Emin, David Hockney etc. While we look at this great artists we need to keep in mind that great art can be anything in any form, it doesn’t have a pattern or a standard - From childlike lines to colour spots spread over a piece of canvas to realistic portraits or landscapes to a bed installation to a video to a formless idea- ANYTHING CAN BE ART! Ok, so far so good but what’s the new trend in contemporary art, who is “THE NEW ARTIST”? Everything and anything is the new trend and anyone can be “THE NEW ARTIST”. As we look into my previous mentions, any kind of art style and artistic practice can be very successful so... is not about a particular style or technique, it’s all about the artist- the ability to overcome hard times and critiques while carrying on doing ART. Action is the foundational key to all success.- “Pablo Picasso”.

Borbala Eszteri Borbala was born is Hungary and now lives and work in Basel, Switzerland. She is a mixed medium painter whose colourful works include the use of oil paint, oil pastels, acryl, aquarelle, and ink. This merging of painting techniques allows colors and lines to take persistent on the overall image. Borbala describes that in her practice, she focuses on the colours and how they affect her. Borbala has moved places many times and has lacked a sense of permanence in her life. She uses her art and the act of painting to find comfort in unfamiliar places. “For me creating art is a way of finding my inner home. As long as I am surrounded by my paintings, I feel at home,” says Borbala. The young artist paints almost entirely people. She then uses colour to depict the certain moods or traits on the somewhat abstract human faces. Borbala also represents faces based on her current attitude or her feelings towards the person that

@borbalaes

she is painting. She believes that the use of different colours is sometimes a better and more meaningful way to describe a person than words.

John Denniston II Born and raised in Los Angeles, California by a family of dancers, painting came natural to a self engaged young boy who was too self conscious to get on stage. I moved to Brooklyn to study at Pratt, and now I’m being introduced to the hard part of artistry-honesty. Not like confessing, it’s not about me, it’s about making something that I or someone might be able to confess to. From the start of my artistic pursuit I have believed thought is the beginning and end of painting, but painting is also a crafted form and it is this form which delivers

@john.does.art

ideas to the view-er. From bathing in the process of crafting paintings I have come to realize that I am a viewer in my own right, and I don’t like spoiled tales so I usually paint to discover. It keeps the relationship spicy and keeps me on my toes.

Jenny Jiyoung Han Jenny Han is originally from South Korea, studied Fashion at the University of Arts London and graduated in 2017. She worked partially as an illustrator and a private art tutor for young children in the middle of her education years. Previously, she engaged in fine art studio works for three years back during her 20s in South Korea. She was intrigued by cartoon-based storybooks, making her enthusiasm to see reality as an abstract figure of platforms. She loved the dreamy lanes of focusing eyes into the philosophical world. The majority of her works contribute to linking the syntax of image makings that she tries not to use any of the previous inventions experimented by other artists. The complicated-self

from her whole engagement into identity journey through educations and experiences lead to being a multi-disciplinary visual artist. She takes some whimsical abstract figures and cartoon based illustrated resources into one particular 2D format and then re-format the subjective images, remaining equivocal resemblances, and familiar symbols. Typically, her adoration of the sunflower became her loveable symbol of creation. It contains

the whole validity of representational seeings into the abstract formation.

Selin AYDINOL Selin Aydinol (1994) moved from Istanbul to Belgium in 2016. She received her masters in painting from Royal Academy of Antwerp in 2019. She lives and works in Antwerp. Her first group exhibition was “Omg Is Pink The New Black?” (2019, Feb) curated by Spank Moons. Followed by the “To Be Antwerp” exhibition at Geukens en De Vil Gallery (2019, Nov). Most recently, “Zonder Kunstenaars Geen Kunst” at Muhka, Nick Lodgers (2020, Feb), a group show which included Chantal Akerman, Fred Bervoets, Leo Copers, Ria Pacquée and more. Her process starts with a drawing. Selin sections this drawing into even pieces which creates unique compositions for each painting. She then treats them as a new territory to integrate into. Not by manipulating the composition, but by applying colours and textures. Selin wants to take the image and rediscover it section by section, exposing the already existing values that were not visible at first sight. She values the impact that basic shapes and textures can have. She mostly cares about the image being beautiful, without trying to define it.

William Hughes William Hughes (b.1999, Coventry) is a multidisciplinary visual artist working in a semi- abstracted way around themes of memory and remembering. He draws on specific memories and nostalgic material from his family’s history, influencing his multimedia approach to working. He works with often discarded and forgotten material to depict intimate and fragile themes. “Memory is a delay. Memory is a fragment. Memory is of the body that passed. Memory is the trace of a wave goodbye made with a slightly clenched fist. ” (Robert Morris, 1994). How do we read memories? Hughes’ practice seeks to explore processes of memory and remembering, reflecting and drawing ideas from nostalgic material from his family. Working with multimedia processes, he creates works of abstraction and suggestion set in spaces that trigger feelings of familiarity in the audience. Processes of abstract marking, texture built through layering, and its residual traces, depict confusion and ambiguity. He uses materials found or inherited; through

Ekaterina Demenina My name is Ekaterina Demenina and I’m a Moscow-based visual artist, Fine Art photographer. Received an MA degree in Art History. As a photographer and video director, I work with musicians. Under the pseudonym Arte Obscura I launched a personal project «Still Lifes». Still life photography for me is a way to stop and take a breath in the era when time is flashing like a blurry landscape in the high-speed train. Still life is a metaphor for still time. The picturesque features of photography and the photographic nature of painting are the themes I constantly explore. I like to confuse the viewer whether it is a photographic artwork or a painting and prefer to call my still lifes “photopaintings”. “The Dutch Still Life” is the hommage to the XVII century Dutch and Flemish mas-ters. The series represents the results of my striving to “wash out” the boundaries between contemporary photography and the Dutch Golden Age painting, to

Zoe Antona Zoe Antona is a multi-disciplinary artist and photographer, whose work addresses self discovery through abstraction. She grew up in Atlanta, Georgia in the US, relocated to Cincinnati, OH, and is now based in the greater NYC area. She is currently earning her Bachelors of Fine Art and Art History. Her work explores relationships with self and others that is representational of the weight and the power dynamics all relationships possess. Zoe’s work continuously explores intimate experiences between that of only two people. As well as depict-ing how intimacy impacts not only the emotional state but also the physical state. Her work aims to evoke a visual and emotional reaction through the aesthetics and installation of her work. The concepts for her work repeatedly revolve around life experiences that represent power dynamics through abstraction. In her current body of work, Zoe is working in abstraction to manifest inner emotions from life ex-periences.

Ana Maria Guta As an artist I seek to explore more about the nature of Universe, consciousness, divinity , life journey and energy around and inside us. I admit that our universe is crossed by invisible flows and currents which are found and influence the artworks of each artist. I am mesmerised about the subtle things, which are not things, thoughts, emotions or sensations, the nature of our reality and our interpretations of it due to many labels that impose different perceptions, behaviours and ways of being. I have developed my painting technique following the lines of abstract suggestion. It is required that the viewer comes with the contemplation, feeling and interpretation. I usually prefer using acrylics on canvas as a medium and material. The green colour is present almost in every painting because, for me, it is about life force, rebirth, aliveness and finding my inner self. Art is something divine, it is love, peace, stillness, balance, harmony, joyfulness, it makes me whole and a much more spiritual being. The focus of my work is the colours, shapes and structures, which I want to integrate in a certain harmony in order

Anna Wiesinger Anna Wiesinger, an artist living in Berlin and Lowersaxony, is known for the suggestive power of colors and shapes in her work. She sees herself in a tradition of sensual and at the same time transcendent color perception, rooted in an early experience when she came to know and love the stained glass windows in the Gothic church of her childhood. Raised in the countryside, she experienced the essence of nature as stillness, strength and unlimited. Pictures that free us in this unlimited space and yet contain human emotions and concerns are her goal. Wiesinger tries to develop a language of colours that leave traces and point to a new experience. She was born in Königswiesen, Austria and studied at the University of Art in Linz. She regularly takes part in solo - and group exhibitions. Her work has also been featured in online and print publications, most recently

In 2005 he graduated in Fine Arts from Fine Arts Academy and in 2007 he received a second master’s degree in Archaeology from la Sapienza University in Rome. Polyhedric artist, his eclectic production is the result of a continuous process of historical-scientific research addressed to the representation of cultural content, often with a social and naturalistic background. He has always been interested in studying African wildlife and he has much travelled through Africa and Middle East to get inspiration for his art production. His work consists in reworking of life experiences through an expressionist language and by means of photography. Three core themes prevail in his painting: the historical portrait, the

Joyce Camilleri Joyce Camilleri is an artist teacher at the Malta School of Art. Through regular studio practice and weekly life class sessions, Camilleri maintains and develops a personal visual language that attempts to explore drawing and printmaking as distinct, nonetheless symbiotic art practices. Ongoing studio practice allows Camilleri to push the boundaries of essentially graphical elements through the use of mixed media, bringing about both figurative and quasi-abstract visual metaphors that meander along the fine line that divides yet unites the real and the surreal. Alongside, such artistic research enables her to explore the poetic space of contemporary drawing, whilst constantly nourishing and revisiting an artistic process that is allowed to prevail over subject-matter. Artistic intent and process-led practices retain interchangeable roles throughout Camilleri’s approach to art theory and practice.

Sarah Waters As a felt artist for almost thirty years, Sarah understands the importance, especially in these fragile and uncertain times, for the need to highlight the history, sustainability and renewable resources of wool and to be able to educate and show this to a wider audience.

@sarahwatersartist

Sheep, wool and farming are in her blood and her current practice of felt artwork reflects her desire to connect with the land. For the past several years Sarah has been looking at the history of our rural land by drawing and researching standing stones, the ancient markers of the countryside. This culminated in 2017 in her exhibition ‘Stone’ that toured across the UK and Canada (World Festival of Threads Solo Show), including as part of the Richard Demarco Archive’s ‘Homage to Joseph Beuys’, a two-person exhibition in the Demarco Wing of Summerhall Art Centre, Edinburgh, in 2018 and in Dunoon Burgh Hall in 2019. Sarah is currently working on a series on pieces looking at the earth and strata on the land, for a solo exhibition entitled Above:Below to be shown at Farfield Mill, Cumbria in 2022.

My artistic research focuses on continuous experimentation, placing particular interest in the exploration of the soul, au-

thenticity and nature. Traveling solo around the world has led me to get to know not only different cultures, but also to have the opportunity to learn about artisanal techniques for processing materials. For example, my last experience in Thailand taught me traditional techniques of how to process Thai clay. In addition, I acquired skills to construct bamboo houses and the use of the welder to create artistic iron sculptures. In recent years I combined architecture with the art world and I began to exhibit in collective exhibitions (Geneve, Alba and Turin).

The photographs and paintings Adam produces come from a pure and vulnerable place. He incorporates the emotions he is feeling during the time of creation and tries to provoke a feeling of serenity for the viewer, using the emotional aspect of colour and setting. A theme that surrounds his art and has intrigued his imagination since he started creating is the idea of enlightenment; what that term represents, and how humanity is in a constant struggle to achieve this transcendental state.

My favorite colors as a child were pink and purple. They still are today. I love to use those colors with nature as a dominant theme in my paintings. My years of experience have opened opportunities at local art shows and in galleries. I love the possibility of taking these paintings to a world audience. The ultimate purpose of the work I do is to create happiness, peace, fun and above all Love.

Sarah Boisvert Before I was a painter I was a writer. And in my new series of modern paintings I’ve incorporated my love of storytelling. They are rich in detail and tell a complete story, if you listen closely. I get my inspiration from grunge style; from music to road signs to bad people and worse habits. From expectations and let downs and a love/hate relationship with social media.

Lauren Brown My work has developed using a balance of colour, marks and space achieved through different variations in paint application, an unruly gesture of improvisation using paint. The paintings evoke an essence of fluidity, movement and improvisation, creating paintings with recognisable elements that contrast with unknown and intriguing marks and shapes. I allow the physical presence of the artist, the mark making is controlled, yet unpredictable with a feral nature. The paint to walks and talks across the canvas. The paintings are open to interpretation.

As a result of the sexualization of girls in all forms of media, Tairi struggled with her own self image and she started to paint herself as a way to take back control and to celebrate womanhood. Tairi mainly paints with oil today but she also likes to experiment with other mediums like acrylics, spray paint, colouring pencils and textiles. Her aim is to capture moments in time,

Her work is described as a freeze frame in a movie or a page in a book, or a party you wish you’d been invited to. Her collages include Modigliani like characters, paint and impeccably cut magazines; curated together like a puzzle, replicating everyday culture of life in the Hamptons, or a loft party in SoHo. One might think Jackie is an interior designer. Her ingredients are nostalgic, identifiable and relatable, compelling the viewer to collect her work.

Magarita Ivanova My name is Magarita Ivanova. I am a professional artist living in Russia. Painting is an integral part of my life. For me, not drawing is like being silent. From early childhood, I decided to live by creativity, painted a lot, received an art and then an architectural education. But in the end, painting took over and became my main profession. Now I am an active participant and winner of various international exhibitions, and my works are in private collections around the world. The object of my work is a person. What he is, what he feels. I am primarily interested in the relationship between the head and body of one person. Where is our true essence? Thoughts in the head and body movements are sometimes completely unrelated and even contradict each other. In my works, I play this game - who is who. Images of the plaster heads of the gods of Olympus are a symbol. On the one hand, this is our divine principle, on the other, our Ego. I like this analogy of the Gods of Olympus with human heads, thoughts. They are very similar. Immortals, capricious, often sin, love, cruel and generous. In my works, a person is always in dialogue with himself.

Katrin Loy I work photographically with the overlay of images and / or digital image processing. Photographic work plays a decisive role, because for me is not about the depiction of the reality found, but about the new imaging resulting from associative overlay or alienation of the original photographic image. One could ask: Does the form in which we perceive, think, feel and intuitively perceive the world really correspond to a combination of a perception of reality and associative-projective fantasy? And what exactly corresponds to reality and what to fantasy? And what exactly is reality and what is fantasy? Ultimately everything is a question of consciousness ... so it is probably both and neither and at the same time it is neither both nor neither ... a PARADOX ... life is just a dream of a higher AWAKENING ...

Salvatore Esposito I’m an Italian artist, based in London, UK. I’ve studied graphic design and photography and in fact these transitional experiences had and still have a crucial effect on the whole process of creating my artworks. Born and raised in Naples, south Italy, I had to live with the very concept of discarded and recycled material. The fact of knowing what is art and what is considered just discarded material has always been of my interest. That is why I tend to use upcycled material in almost all my works, trying to picture an abstract, cultural and architectural urban view.

Ksenia My name is Ksenia and I’m 18 years old artist living in Russia. My meeting with art began at the age of three, when, as a baby, I started drawing on home wallpaper. Now I draw on canvases that are taller than me. As I like to say, “the higher the canvas, the more opportunity to express myself”The depth of human emotion is hard to determine, but I’ll try - art will help me with that. My goal is so that the viewer can fully plunge into the emotion set by the author. As Mark Twain said, “Every emotion is involuntary, if it is sincere.”

Adam Shea Lancaster Adam Shea Lancaster is an American artist from Dallas, Texas. He creates representational paintings in a style he’s called “NeoRomantiClassical”—a contemporary take on draped figures in traditional poses. His themes explore Western culture’s mythical beauty, asking the important question: Is beauty as conceived by Western culture (in the Greco-Roman tradition) mythical in the sense that myth is an “untrue story” or in the sense that myth is a “storied truth.” Lancaster prides himself on creating fine art with humble craft paint from hobby shops on drop cloths from hardware stores. Although fluent in more refined media, he’s made it his mission to present painting as accessible to everyone—beginning with

Cherie Lee Ancient craft in the modern age. Prehistoric engravings have been found incised on ostrich eggshells dating as far back 60,000 BCE. I wonder: What if they had my tools? Using high-speed rotary equipment, I reduce this single-celled wonder to the brink of it’s breaking point, producing spherical sculptures inviting you to question what you believed, and find renewed respect for what you believe possible. Strength and weakness are together built into the structure of all things, yet the persistent notion that big = strong & small = weak implies an assigned separation where separation cannot exist. When we perceive something as ‘strong’ there is attraction; when we perceive something as ‘weak’, there is aversion; when we ignore half of the equation, there is distortion. However ordinary, please don’t see anything as mundane. Wherever the unusual arises, approach it with curiosity. What you consider to be strong, revere it’s frailty.

When you see something delicate, appreciate it’s strength. Whether my subject-matter be ecological, sociological or anthropological, I’m doing what’s been done for all of mankind’s

existence: appreciating the natural world around me, marveling at it’s boundless capacity.

Sarah Bird Sarah Bird’s collages are made up of photographs of domestic surroundings that have been fragmented, digitally distorted and re-composed as abstract artworks. They follow the tradition of artists meditating upon the theme of ‘home’, re-imagined for the digital age. They explore architecture and community: the places we inhabit and share. Bird uses veils of vivid colour to blend real with imagined, making the familiar, alien. Windows and doorways are common motifs that mark thresh-

@sj8ird

olds, the liminal points of boundary and change. The weave of a curtain dissolves into pixels; the view through a window reveals nothing. Bird is drawn to things that show traces of human action over time: the layers of paint and wallpaper, or imprints on a bedsheet. These are symbolic of narratives becoming distorted, entrenched and even oppressive over time. They reflect the fragmented way in which we pass on and take in information in the digital age. Sarah Bird studied at Goldsmith’s College and lives and works

in London. She exhibits regularly and her work is held in private collections in the UK and USA.

The interest was cultivated already during her young teenage years and developed when she opted her university degree of the same subject. She likes to create a realistic interpretation of people, while focusing on expressive elements of light and texture. Honey uses art as medium of self-therapy, which is why it helped her heal, understand others and herself better. She

I have been a part of Insight school of Art since 2013, having recently joined their Studio Fridays. My work is constructed from material found on building sites, which I represent as visions of my my own inner fears, like ageing, loneliness, anger and mortality. My organic materials are glued, wired and layered tightly, interconnecting and merging into each other. I am telling a story of my personal cultural dilemma and the experience of loss. I am currently researching the philosophy of ageing. I enjoy researching my body of work through books and dialogues. My symbolic objects remind us of mortality, fragility of life, memory loss and passing physicality. I am trying to transform decay into something beautiful, therefore giving it another life. My recent Ageing project has a strong message of fear of ageing process and the stigma of dementia. I am explicitly highlighting the damage that time imposes on human body and mind, how it erases lingua, memories and consciences. My focal point is

My practice focuses on the optimization of space and the use of material through the specific construction of ideas I play with to create minimalist and straight forward compositions. My constructions reveal a memory, a current state or a hidden side of a place with the elements that surround it. In many cases, the place I construct my art is transformed like a mental space, offering to the view-

London is an essential source of inspiration to me, my sculptures are made of left over elements found in its parks, pubs, stores… thus; branches, straws, and hangers are some examples of components I use to portray this thrilling city full of life and contrasts. I come from a remote place surrounded by nature, so I interpret the London cityscape in a very organic way, both themes of nature and architecture are fused to create odds and playful compositions.

Tejaswini creates intricate pieces made with perler beads on canvas. Her interest in this unique medium began in 2008, when she purchased an art kit, as a Christmas gift, for her daughter. As her little girl created small birds and flowers using the beads in the kit, the artist started visualizing different patterns on the canvas with these beads and realized she found the perfect texture for her designs. Born into an art loving family, Tejaswini was exposed to art and its appreciation from early childhood. She chose Fine Arts as her major and has a M.F.A. from CCS University, India. She also has an Arts Management diploma from New York University.

In her work “Grass Carpet” she explores urbanisation and its growing dominance globally in relation to economic development, as well as our perception of nature and its use for decoration. In “Digital Tapestries” the use of digitalising the images presents the distortion of humanity and how we have adapted as a human race. These tapestries will live forever online and won’t overtime become worn out like how a traditional woven tapestry would. She is currently studying Fine Art at Central St Martins where she is emerging and adapting her digital practice. She works mainly in animation and video

The inspiration behind Joely’s work is derived from exploring urban environments. In a world where no condition is permanent, she finds herself gaining inspiration from what she calls “urban imperfections”, often found in the more derelict areas of towns, cities & built environments. She is also particularly interested in the Anthropocene and the “man-made” & often re-uses single use plastic to create different textures within her work. Joely takes visual cues and snippets from architectural forms, textures and surfaces which are represented through the

Many of her portraits are recognisable as African Heads, and these make reference to her first encounters with a sitter as she was embarking on this creative journey. Penny also does very large abstract acrylic paintings that are strong colour and textural statements . In tandem with this two dimensional work Penny has over the past year begun experimenting with clay/sculpturing heads and using mobile digital media to manipulate images from the original photos taken during the creating process of

2019-2020 - study of muralism in Mexico and participation in international festivals. Each of the works is a frank conversation with the viewer about the most intimate and elusive, an appeal to the inner world of a person, his experiences, which are transformed into symbols on the canvas. This is a sincere story of an individual who, nevertheless, is not only an integral part of society, but also builds it. “In art, it’s interesting for me to go not into the external, but into the depth. I am trying to find answers through painting, and “awaken” viewer.”

Dolores Mephistopheles Dolores Mephistopheles is a Croatian artist based in Berlin, who combines energy work with painting in order to express herself. Inspired by life lessons, music and techno culture, she is painting with acrylics on paper where for some paintings, she uses her whole body as a tool. Colours that dominate her work are only red, blue, black and white. Combination of those four colours represent a union of her feminine and masculine energy, together with light spirit and dark necessities. Paper that she uses is theoretically not meant for painting and thus, symbolises vulnerability of the creations. The mission of her work is to connect the viewers with parts of themselves that they might not be connected with.

Rita Hisar My life journey is unique, as I have always been an Artist but only recently did I pursue it professionally, after working in Law and Education. I have always expressed myself through art and color. As a child, I grew up on a farm entranced by the beauty of trees, flowers and animals. I wanted to capture the fleeting, fragile Beauty of nature through art…before it disappears. However, growing up, I did not think being an Artist was a possible career, so I decided to study and pursue other passions: I obtained 4 university degrees and worked as a refugee lawyer and teacher. Nevertheless, I always found time to paint, to create. A few years ago,I decided to pursue art more seriously, studying art at The Ontario College of Art anDesign University and The Toronto School of Art. My art education gave me the confidence to pursue an Art Career. Inspired by the Movements I studied-Expressionism, Fauvism and Pop Art – I developed my own style using a palette knife and acrylic paint to paint bold and vibrant portraits, still life and figure paintings.

In my works of small format, I have already managed to derive the term Trashrealism. Trashrealism is the moment when fragments of a pictorial form strive to convey reality with the help of an artist, me, Seva Boytsov. I find these “fragments” in the abstract space of unnecessary forms of fine art. I bring them to life by working from nature. And I broadcast all this to the viewer.

The spaces and heroes in my works have an alternative color scheme - with this I emphasize that the color of the skin does not matter. The modern world still cannot accept the truth - we are all equal and everyone is unique. Most often, the subjects for my works are myths and ancient scriptures. These themes are always relevant to Humanity they tell us about love, passion and death. They inspire me to create my artworks.

Marina Clemente Marina Clemente is a conceptual artist and painter living and working in Paris, France. Her work is concerned with the theme of searching for a new connection through disconnection in our fast- paced world. Clemente approach this theme through the metaphor of sleep and dreaming. Dreaming is a unique experience which cannot be fully shared with another person. We cannot take a friend’s hand and call him to come along. When we are plunged into the dream world we go there alone. For the past 5 years Clemente was noticing and capturing sleeping people from her daily life, her friends or family. From the archival material collected, a series of paintings “In Dreams” was born. Clemente’s work is an exploration of the connection between the dream and the reality in the context of our perpetually hurrying world. She exhibited in Europe, most notably in Paris and Berlin.

Shadow and light play with the three dimensionality of the canvas surfaces to add kinetic interest, while fiber inspires touch and movement. MTHR is equal parts craft and fine art: canvases are hand sculpted and stretched on digitally designed frames while the wool used is dyed by the artist and hand shorn from local east coast farms by the artist’s mother.

Her ethereal drawings reflect a duality between fantasy and reality, by conjuring dream-like imagery that develops into a transformative state reflecting on the fleeting aspects of time and humanity. These notional subjects respond to feelings of isolation in a crowded and alienating world by evoking the healing that comes from within.

Patricia Figueiredo Patrícia Figueiredo lives and works in Rio de Janeiro. Initially, her creative process found a place in her training in architecture, a place that served as a trigger for the development of a creative-artistic vision that would emerge in other media. With collage, she found a possibility of enunciation of her language, where images and words subscribe to each other and resurrect motivating issues of painting and sculpture. Starting from this, Patricia begins an exhaustive and obsessive process searching for the word that will unfold in its original form, such as the link of chain that somatizes an incessant search for a proper word or by a proper name, which always results in something new.

Venetia Jollands I am an artist and musician based in Crouch End, London. Having always felt a huge need to feed my creative spirit, I continued to draw and paint whilst studying the violin at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. Recently, I have had time to take my career as an artist further alongside my music making and can often be found painting in my studio at Blue House Yard. I enjoy exploring various painting media, but predominately use acrylics, oil and pencil in multiple layers on my canvas. I aim to use as much recycled material and packaging as possible, as I believe that creativity should exist in harmony with nature, wherever possible. My work explores the connection between aesthetics and reality; I am inspired by both life’s unanswerable questions and the startling beauty of our fragile existence and the planet that we call home. Alongside this, I am interested in historic iconography and the meaning of art in different cultures and places, by patterns found in nature, and traditions in design and architec-

Nick Lawrence Nick Lawrence studied fine art at Winchester School of Art; specialising in sculpture, printmaking and painting. Nick’s painting series “What’s That Noise?” seeks to portray the blurred lines between our physical and digital memories, and the fragmentary nature of identity and information in the contemporary world. In a reflection of the way this data is chopped and changed the paintings themselves have been cut up and collaged back together, producing a new result each time the process is repeated. This process draws parallels between the way human mind interacts with and constructs its own memories with scraps of sound, smell and sight, and the ever increasing lack of clarity surrounding how information is compiled and presented as fact in the digital age.

I use the initially acquired skills of understanding the basics of perspective, composition, design and artistic thinking, but in order to be an artist and not a graphic designer, you need expression of technique, color, subjective vision, which allows you to go beyond what is possible for a physical object in terms of its practicality and convenience (if you take the design). In terms of the emotional component, I am an adherent and

Alicia Quigley Alicia ‘Quig’ is an Irish artist, currently residing in Berlin . Mainly working in large-scale format and dabbling in various mediums from acrylics and oils to spray paint and graphite, Quig makes use of any material necessary to tell the story of each visual creation. This often leads to intricately layered textures and tones that bring a unique element to each and every piece. Quig’s art career began with her fascination with painting on recycled and used materials, such as old wooden cutoffs that she would collect from a local wood artist.

Siu Lin Ho I’m a young mixed media artist from the Netherlands, born 1991. I tend to work with different mediums such as photography, painting and drawings. Usually my work is intuitive, and I try to find spirituality within the work. What made me come to this point is having studied a variety of religions and also Buddhism. Painting cán be very meditative and arts can be spiritual. Nevertheless, my path drew me here after mental illnesses, so I believe it’s a good path to take, working with color, intuition, lines, and subconscious drawings.

sions, natural materials. The artist focuses on emotional expression, strives to achieve as great an effect as possible by simpler means. She loves the light, often uses bright and contrasting combinations to produce the best impression. Alina likes to arouse the viewer’s curiosity with unusual details and implied sense in her works. The storylines in her paintings are left open for interpretation by the viewers themselves. The artist opens us her own perspective of the world and its inconstancy. The primary objective is creation of works that do not provide the viewer

with ready answers through either the plot, or the colors, or the rhythm. Currently lives and creates works in Kazan, Russia.

I am not content with standing by and watching the world’s beauty dissipate, my quest is to immortalize it in a painted form while saving it for future generations to enjoy. I evoke feelings of wonder and awe while enhancing the beauty I see so quickly disappearing. I am passionate about conservation and donate percentages of each sold piece to reputable wildlife charities. I hope to share my emotional investment with the viewer and, hopefully, inspire in them a piece of my fire for wildlife conservation.

Having a diverse background, I get inspiration from my childhood memories and life events. Many things motivate me to draw: from a bird flying by on a shiny day to a large-scale event in the world. Being an academic artist, I begin my work with finding the spot, composition, color scheme

and collecting the necessary materials. And then I proceed to implementing my plans.

Ellaya Yefymova I am an artist from Ukraine. I’ve had a passion for art since I was a child. In 2004, I graduated from the Art school with honors. However, after a difficult adolescence and uncertainty caused by my love for natural sciences, I postponed my dream of becoming an artist and decided to become a doctor. I still love medicine as science (not practice), but I feel happy only with the brush in my hand. Becoming a mom made me realize that dreams cannot be postponed! There is no better time than now! So now I am an artist with a medical diploma and an unlimited love for science, art and the human body. In my artworks, I want to convey to the viewers important aspects of our life related to health and threatening environmental pollution, in order to inspire people for a more conscious attitude to their bodies and their environment. Medical education has given me such knowledge that I want to share, since knowledge about the human body and the influence of external and internal

Many years I did not touch any art materials but in 2016 I have taken the strong decision – I am a painter, I am an artist, I have a lot of things inside of me accumulated to be shown on this world. I have returned to practice drawing and painting art again, refreshed my art knowledge and still trying to develop my own style.

Anna Stuart Anna Stuart is an emerging artist based in France. Her grandfather was a talented self-taught Russian artist, whose skills and vision were admired by many. A lawyer by trade, Anna lived and worked in different parts of the world, which gave her a chance to get deeper insights into various cultures, traditions and customs. This experience allows her now to see many things from a different perspective and to use techniques and inspirations which create her own unique style. Already, her works are getting noticed. Her aquarelles were recently exhibited in one of London’s central galleries. “If I could say it in words there would be no reason to paint” – this quote by Edward Hopper guides Anna in her work. Working with watercolours, gouache and pastel primarily in the style of art naïf, her creations can be very detailed; many with humour, and some of them are puzzles. She always tries to tell a story - whether it’s real or imagined. Constantly discovering ways to express herself in visual art,

After high school I decided to study History of Art, because I wanted to have more scope about curatorial work. Now I am trying to fully start my artistic career, open a studio and things related to it... The exhibition What It Feels Like a Girl tries to capture a woman’s life (desires, thoughts, and feelings in individual important moments of their lives) in 20 oil paintings. I have always taken women as muses that inspire me not only in an artistic career. I admire their way of thinking and looking at the world. During my life so far, I have met several exceptional women who have strongly influenced and supported me in my decisions. For these reasons, I decided to dedicate my new exhibition mainly to them. The paintings created during the years 2018-2020.

Mary Badalian Mary Badalian is a contemporary visual artist currently living and working in Yerevan, Armenia. A lawyer by training, Mary’s interests span international relations, human rights and questions of ethics and integrity which she developed through internships at the Armenian Constitutional Court, Chamber of Advocates and at the UN in Armenia. In parallel to her university studies in law (Slavonic University of Armenia, 2018), Mary rediscovered her passion for art and creativity as a form of self-expression. For Mary these two paths - although distinct - are interconnected: while the law creates an environment for freedom of thought, art is the expression of that liberty in its most human form.

@qaminpchi

Since 2017, Mary has immersed herself in a practice of mixed media on canvas that involves intricate embroidery of thread and beads covered by acrylic paint, often in a monochrome palette. Her practice is both an ode to her Grandmother, an avid embroiderer, as well as a “quiet rebellion” as she transforms a traditionally female, domestic craft into large scale works of fine art.

Eva Kosinar Eva Kosinar was born 1977 in Bratislava/Slovakia and grew up in Hainburg/Lower Austria. Since 1999 she lives in Vienna and in 2008 she started working as a freelance photographer. She focuses on artistic projects. As a photographer I work on snapshots of a fictional world. They deal with personal feelings, relationships and troubling situations in one´s life. In my work I get inspired by classical paintings such as Fra Angelico or Hieronymus Bosch and their peculiar perspective and image composition. Therefore, all my photographs reflect a certain plot.

evakosinar.at

I work experimentally and alienate my works with different methods. Digital photographs of persons of objects are the point of departure for my work. I design and produce all the backdrops and props for my photographs myself, which reflect the influence of classical paintings. Afterwards I manipulate them digitally. Again, medieval examples from oil paintings strongly influence me. I use different materials for this, which is why primed newsprint or fabric can serve as image carriers in addition to classic photographic paper.

He works in both analog and digital formats, which puts him in a unique creative position, Whereby he can cross and recross the traditional and the contemporary. Silvio is searching for new values, new visual languages that will allow him to incorporate photography, collage, and animation in new formats. With Silvio and his work, photography often becomes collage, with collage often becoming animated gif. It is an exciting new frontier in contemporary art for which this artist is at the forefront. This is an artist that understands the technology of gifs, glitches, and loops, the bedrock of contemporary gif animation and video art. He finds himself in an enviable position whereby he can use these technologies to expand his work.

Studying architecture for 10 years led them to a realization that the description of the world is alike drafting a design, where the complex can be uncovered in parts. The act of creation becomes space “appropriation” for the artist, at the same time as the “conquests” of own boundaries are exposed. Paint-

April Winter April Winter lives and works on a small island off the coast of British Columbia. She creates playful yet introspective self-portraits in self built, often claustrophobic sets. Her work revolves around the transformations of these little worlds, filling the space with found, made or borrowed objects to tell a story; often about such topics as sexuality, utopia and isolation.

Sun Boyi Sun Boyi is a motivated Chinese independent filmmaker and artist. Since her first encounter with electronic video equipment, Sun has been practising moving image for nearly 14 years in the genres of video, television, documentary, digital film, experimental film and, most recently, film installation art. Sun’s practice interests have always revolved around the creative development of ‘Gan Jue’ (translates as ‘feeling’) as a tool to promote ‘mutual understanding’ between different societies and species in film practice, and to help to break down ‘bound-

Krzysztof Bobrowski Born …. to paint and create. Educated in a country between the West and the East, the artist was influenced by dissonance of the two worlds. Broad education injected intellectual depth and spiritual experiences embellished it. The artist unites different contradictive rhythms, aggressive expression of drawings, nostalgic slash of portraits and suggestive intenseness of the conceptual art. The artist was inspired by various art civilizations: glamour and nostalgia of Italian art, furiousness of Spanish art and reflection of oriental art. The pieces of art have been created in different techniques like drawings in pencil or Indian-ink, pastel, oil and acrylic painting as well as water-color.

My work has always been related to visual art, I work in film production, fine art and as a photographer, but I am more interested in interdisciplinary experiences. In my works, I talk about human perception and self-identification. First of all, this is the psychology of the perception of the human body. I work with the body-object, using semiotics

Cristina Balan Cristina Balan is an emerging abstract expressionist. Born in 1977 in Moldova, she studied arts from the age of five. Very early on, her works were exhibited at various artistic performances in Moldova and abroad. The fall of the Soviet Union paused Cristina’s creative ascension and she had to work to be able to support herself. In her thirties, she became a business community leader, and at 41 was appointed as the Ambassador to the United States. In 2019, Cristina returned full-time to art, her abstract paintings being quickly noticed and appreciated by the public. Contemporary art magazines including Diafano, Spain and Art Hole, UK, published her art works. The art experts tagged her as a “smash-hit-ho-be” and her paintings have been displayed in art shows in Washington D.C. and New York City. Cristina’s works are currently featured in galleries from New York, Tokyo and Barcelona. ‘I create art that hopefully goes straight to the heart. My pur-

In 2020 the artist first showed her work to the world (in social media). In addition, the global lockdown became the impetus for the creation of the Born.of.scrawl project, within which new possibilities of Scrawlgraphy was opened and a great interest of the audience in her unusual work was noticed. Scrawlgraphy is her way to show the world that in chaos you can always findsomething special and beautiful.

@born.of.scrawl

Scrawlgraphy is a very gambling activity. Every painting is a challenge and an experiment. Never know in advance what image will turn out. Tatiana Kramarenko dreams of popularizing Scrawlgraphy, which will help develope the creative thinking of mankind and everyone will discover new talents in themselves, both in life and in creativi-

Lacey Kim I always loved the feeling of applying paint with a brush. The texture created when paint is combined with liquid solvent, and the changes observed when colors are mixed with one another, provide a constant, intimate thrill. My painting reflects a line-based language, defined by layers and color combinations. I try to be true of myself while I work on each painting. I believe directness of acting and being is the way to one’s true nature. This nature is not something we make; it is already there. Zen teaches that we spend years forgetting and abandoning this nature, but that we can always access it again. Once realized, this clear approach translates effortlessly to everything I create. The process of painting is not simply about my own journey but about connecting with others. My work reflects something that is shared; Mahayana, or ‘great vehicle’, captures the idea of finding wholeness in harmony with other beings. Creating @lkimstudio

art is, therefore, a powerful way to engage this wholeness. I consider the contents of each painting to reflect a captured

moment - the record of a fleeting experience. I hope my work provides viewers with a window to the truth of their own being.

Ohkyoung Noh Ohkyoung Noh (b.1997) is a socially-engaged artist and progressive educator based in Seoul, South Korea. For the past three years, Noh is interested in highlighting various kinds of “dislocation” that city dwellers experience due to their limited resources. “Dislocation” occurs when residents’ largely unsuccessful attempts to make their dreams of ideal living conditions real create a variety of mismatches between their expectations and their limited materials. This state indicates the unattainability of one’s ideals and the insufficiency of our material lives but also are easily neglected by the same person unmindful of visual and material ironies. Noh visualizes this matrix of dislocated ideals in a city by layering and contrasting multiple examples of individuals’ hoped-for ideals and their actual material conditions through performance, digital images, and installations as well as urban media. Noh’s works have been exhibited in A-brick Gallery, Woosuk Gallery, Hongik Museum of Art(HOMA), and CICA Museum.

Mariia Jones I was born in Asia, in Kazakhstan, I spent my childhood and grow up in Russia. Late I received my architectural education in Russia and in Europe. After graduating I moved to the USA. For some time, I was working as an architect in Russia and in the US. Later, I started to take commissions for book illustrations, and afterwards started to make paintings and sell them, because I always liked to draw. Throughout all my life, I practiced yoga, and I was interested in the spirituality in man. This also reflected in my art: my topics are searching for meaning, aspiring for calmness and clarity; harmony with nature; the relationship between human and nature; microcosm inside everyone. Throughout my life, I have seen many nations and cultures, thus, myths, legends, and fairy tales also attract me, and I show all these topics in my art. In my paintings I aim to show the world, what fills me: a deep beauty full of secrets and discoveries, a world that connects with nature, and causes the

Ellie Hawkes My practice explores nature in all forms through processes of photography and printing techniques. The subjects I use have primary references to environmental matter and can be perceived as physical samples of nature. My work more recently has been focused around printed matter and digital processes, exploring seasonal colours and shapes. The prints respond to natural settings and appear three dimensional in form. Circular shapes are the main theme within my practice, used to magnify specific areas of a photographic image or design. Perspex and vinyl materials are used to compose the circular discs @ellie_hawkes_designs

I create. The translucent material enables light and colouration to infiltrate through the work, creating depth and obscurities. I submerse myself in nature to gather new concepts. I love capturing flowers in circular forms and presenting them within a circumference, as in nature there are no straight lines or sharp corners. Circles to me also represent the sun, the moon and the earth, which are ever-changing and evolving around us, just as nature is. There is something beautiful and intricate about taking physical samples of nature and representing them in an

I explore the concept of storytelling, games, and symbols used as a metaphor to describe the labyrinths of life. My work is inspired by the beloved childhood, dreams, and fantasy. My sculptures tell a story with characters, symbols and haiku poetry; while my paintings are the textured background world where the story is played. Clay and color are my transportation to memories and nostalgia of childhood.

Anna Stevens The artist works with performative experimental film and installation to explore the vulnerable corporeality of the body. Inspired by 1970s and 80’s horror films (such as David Cronenberg’s Videodrome), they balance comedy with horror through low-value, tacky imagery and techniques. They aim to increase mortality and bodily awareness to discuss absurdism, the idea that one cannot create a meaningful existence in a meaningless reality, whilst also encouraging an audience to accept and embrace this fact. Fleshy imagery is used to theatrically immerse

@mulier_d_stulta

an audience in fakery to highlight key factors of reality and exhibit the body for what it really is—just meat. By taking Geoffrey Gorer’s idea of the pornography of death, removing the gore-driven imagery from its context, and re-contextualising it in an art space, the imagery grows to cause a deeper contemplation of the vulnerable body. However, rather than dwelling on unfulfilling death anxieties, awareness of life’s shortness and meaninglessness should be liberating, as one can construct new and enjoyable meanings for oneself to live by. The artwork induces laughter and revulsion for cathartic release.

Kevin Boardman I am interested in the participants relationship with production and outcome. Through site specific work, interventions and workshops I explore this interest using materials such as paper, whiteboard and tape for participants to engage with to reveal new insights or ideas in the form of drawings, sculptures, and live performances. My role within this process varies depending on the project, acting as a facilitator, observer or active participant. I operate in this manner as it allows me to explore curiosity through a trans-disciplinary lens rather than fixing my practice to a specific medium or discipline.

Her current Goddess series shows female entities that are both mythical and energetic. The artist wants to highlight the feminine, emancipated and evolved characteristics, sometimes even the recreational or protective maternal features. Lena’s Goddesses are strongly connected to nature and therefore sustainability and a re-use of materials is reflected in her creations. Lena’s goal is to create art that her viewers experience as an energy source on their walls and to evoke a deeper connection to themselves. She intends the textures of her artworks to be touched so that the

Digital researcher thriving to find connections between art, technology, and reality. In her art she draws her inspiration from both the offline and online worlds, touching upon issues related to durability and data processing, memory and oblivion, and the vision of post-digital culture. In the center of her interest lies the image itself, both the ‘real’ and the digital one, its conventionality and illusory nature. In her work, she explores the potential of the image to affect the viewer, its interference and multisensory nature, experimenting with time, movement and texture. Using a variety of surfaces and media, her works often change and update when the viewpoint changes, reflecting the ephemeral @zolkiewskaart

nature of the digital world. She also creates transmedia narratives, drawing inspiration from interactive film, new media, graphics, typography, architecture. In 2007 she received an MFA from the Academy of Fine Arts in Krakow (Poland), and for a while studied Media Arts in Finland. Currently, she is working on her Ph.D. at the Faculty of New

Media in Polish-Japanese Academy of Information Technology in Warsaw.

Stella Dragovic Stella Dragovic, a conceptual artist that studies on Bauhaus University in Germany was born and raised in Croatia. The statement „The observer must become a participant because that is the only way he can have the double experience, of being the observer, and being observed.“ you can feel in all her works. It is the way she works and what art means to her, it is the way to give observer the possibility to feel the same emotions that she feels. Her work is very raw and gives you more than one dimension of it. The emotion she is trying to bring over is the feelings of fear, absence, incoherence, rejection, and emotional instability.

Sarah Zelmati Sarah Zelmati is a french visual artist based in Berlin. She gets a MasterDegree in june 2020 in ESAD Grenoble (Ecole Supérieur d’Art et Design). Actually, She is working in two art spaces in Berlin Kreuzberg as assistant manager. She lives in Berlin for some months now and tries to find her professional artistic way there. She is inspired by several subcultures as punk and non-faschism skinhead movements and a creative process inspired by the Do-ItYourself subculture. It engages in an extravagant aesthetics, purulent with humour and strass, under an aspect which is as repulsive as curious. It is a work which aims at approaching the viewer, a parodic imitation of popular culture. A mix between an enchanted dream and a traveling nightmare. She is working mostly with recovery and antiquing objects. She likes crafts @zelmatisme

and all elements which imitate preciousness but which are junk.

Ferró When I was 9 years old, a teacher told us in class to draw whatever wewanted, it occurred to me to paint an abstract expression with manycolors that was exactly what I liked and made me feel. Very proud of mydrawing, I presented it to the teacher and tore it into as many piecesas he could. That moment marked my artistic life forever and until manyyears later I was not able to express myself like that again. When I decided to do it, I started painting on canvas and presenting myworks in small galleries and places such as restaurants, Pub’s, etc. I donated one of my works to the public school of Domaio where my son studied, I do street performance, I paint on canvas, I have painted scooters, I have paint@ferro_crearte

ed mannequins, I have crushed irons and painted with colors and everything that I play to express what I feel. My artistic training is based on observing what I feel and capturing it. I learn from any type of art and I try to advance every day and that my works evolve with me.

Bismark Alejandro Rex An interdisciplinary artist merging painting, sculpture and architecture studies through the breaking down of boundaries of what is considered a work of art. This is expressed in an intuitive creative process through the use of discarded mundane objects and salvaged materials, being guided by what nature can reveal when one knows how to seek. A vital recurring theme in his works is a deep-rooted quest for identity, having dual nationality between Mexico and the US and experiencing both cultures existentially. Inherent with a native @alejandro.bismark_

instinct to push the limits and finding a sense of freedom, his artworks embody that of a neo-shaman wandering through the simulacra of buildings, paved ground, lush forests and serpentine bayous in the paradoxical landscapes of the metropolis. Throughout his travels and experiences he also illustrates a reference to ancestral wisdom through Mexica folklore, thus revealing our lost connection to nature.

Britt Conley Britt is a synesthesic music-visualist who creates artistic works thatvisually represent music via personifying composers writing styles,concepts of the musical composition process or particular music pieces. She often collaborates with composers and musicians for event-basedexhibitions.Born in the mid-60s in Washington D.C., Britt began her drawing tutelage at an early age, and under the influence of her artist and conservator grandfather. She learned about sounds, touch and phrasings, of pianists and composers from her mother. During her musical upbringing, Britt was concerned with the color and feel of @brittconley_artist

musical sounds. It was years before she and her family understood she had synesthesia. Her early childhood experience informed her drive to visualize music. As a child, she found it frustrating that no one seemed to understand the colors in the air or that contemporary artist’s depictions of music didn’t seem to reflect her own experience. Although she decided to begin her philosophic quest for how to visually personify music around the age of 6. It would take decades for her to create the complexity of expression and visual potential

of her visual language. Britt holds a BA in Fine Arts from George Washington University, a MALS from Georgetown University, a certificate in Art History: History of Color from the Univer-

Dragan Luiza My name is Luiza and I am from Romania, from a small town near Bucharest.Now I am living in UK,London and I am a student.I am passionate about art especially painting and photography.I started painting 2 years ago at the urging of a friend. If in the beginning it was just a game, now painting for me means passion.When I painting I feel free and I forget everything around me. By painting I can express my feelings even are good or bad.I find inspiration in nature and photos.My friends appreciate my paintings and told me that I had talent.I am a simple person who appreciate everything that is simple and beautiful.I feel motivated every time I finish painting a canvas and I like what I see.At that moment I feel joy and fulfillment and I think it is something beautiful and unique. And I still think that,if Good gave you a talent,it is a great sin to waste it,you have to use it.In the future I would like to be able to exhibit a lot of paintings, to have a studio and to delight the eyes of art lovers.

Park has recently exhibited at the SVA Chelsea Gallery and was featured on Artsy.net for an online exhibit organized by SHIM. Park is also the founder of the Emerging Artists Collective, an online community for artists where he interviews other artists.

Asha Lepiarczyk Asha Lepiarczyk was born in Poland in 1984 and immigrated to Canada in 2011. Currently, she lives and works in Burnaby British Columbia. Her upbringing is tightly related to horses as her parents are equestrian coaches. Asha was raised among those animals in a beautiful valley in the heart of National Park. In her early 20s, she attended Jagiellonian University for Russian Philology as well as Judaic Studies. She was also studying in the department of European Studies and Advertising Studies however the love for horses won the battle with science and later in life, she became an equestrian coach herself. After arriving in Canada, being in an equestrian environment was an obvious choice as a continuum of her carrier. She earned the title of Equestrian Competition Coach in the next few years. Unfortunately, due to the live events in 2017, she was forced to give up on her carrier. This is when her passion for painting started to develop. As not able to being among horses anymore Asha started creating them for herself. Driven by forceful sorrow and longing Asha’s drawings and painting became a new passion. She puts all her love and devotion into her new @asha_lepi

obsession - visual arts.
