His essay work supports his analytical position about mechanisms and processes of signal languages transmission. His first stay in Europe, led him to Amsterdam, where he established the platform of artists creation “TARA projects”. In February 2011, in Spain, creates “Funda Mental” project, a documentary records about language systems studies, emphasizing in communicative noises, distortion and transmission processes in general. Funda Mental diffuses these records and try to build a window into the collective work and avoid the obstacle that institutional promotion usually assumes against the young creators’ methods. In the search for these spaces he found another social networks to share his work. Currently also works on documentation and diffusion of community projects in Havana (Cuba)”.

She lives and works in Marknesse, The Nederlands. With color, space and personal symbolism I search for a certain feeling, deeply rooted emotions, not bounded to culture, religion or race, but universal and recognizable for every human being. I hope the spectator finds something of himself in my work. My search is not spectacular or shocking, I am searching in the world of silence. Paintings and objects showing large color fields, with small figurative elements in it, like a leaf, a jacket, or a child. Approximate formed squares and circles are connected with thin lines to each other or to the space outside the painting or object. Glass is a material that gives me the opportunity to enter light literally into the work. Paper looks vulnerable and transient. These materials are becoming more and more important in my work.

MARIA KAVVOU VLATAKI Maria Kavvou-Vlataki brings to life a love affair with paint as she abandons herself to the sensuous and sensual nature of her medium. Nude figures bathed in mood and mystery, flowers brilliantly exploding into bloom and glowing visions of natural beauty emerge in these wondrous creations. In a style of both abstract and expressionist realism, Kavvou-Vlataki finds freedom in paint, fearlessly exploring new textures, methods and subjects in watercolors on paper, or acrylic on canvas, with occasional strategic touches of charcoal and mixed media. â€œMy goal is to follow the painting where it leads me!â€? she exclaims. Maria Kavvou-Vlataki recently renewed her career in painting with a triumphant return after an extended absence spent focusing on family and her work as a guide at various historical archeological sites and museums. Born in Greece on the island of Crete, the artist studied at the Privet Fine Arts School in Crete and Paros islands and now divides her time between studios on the islands of Crete and Paros

The last 25 years she is dealing with naïve painting, she is taking photos of Corfu and Greece and often collects her thoughts in poetic form. Since 2004 she suddenly changed her style and painted “furiously” her first abstracted work just with her hands. In her work Magdalena tries to feel the life again and expresses views of eternity, capturing the moment. She considers her work as a presentation of life itself. Life is an interaction field where people put their signs and leave their marks. She often uses findings from the beach, which underline her intention to create a representation, an image of the existence. After all, is there any better way to perform the meaning of human destiny than the sea? From 2008 she is a member of the Corfu Art Union.

It is, for example, in the act of looking at nature and how it can be reused for patterns plastically always subjective and cultural beauty. It is this mystery that drives the work of Jose Americo in his ongoing research materials. The main feature of his sculptures and wall table is in the mix of types of wood (mastic, for example) with metallic elements (carbon steel, among others). The visual result of the dialogue is marked by the dominance of abstraction and the curved line. Various compositions generally appear in subtle organic shapes. The artist also makes jewelry. Work as studies of larger works, constructed from pieces of wood found on the banks of the Parana River and the shaping of the steel... (Oscar D’Ambrosio).

Gabriela Z. Pickett-Mosier Gabriela Z. Pickett-Mosier is a native of Mexico City (March 20, 1969). Coming from a long line of artists, she studied art at Wright State University in the United States. Her life is full of experiences that have allowed her to develop her talent as an artist. Being born in Mexico she developed a fondness for what most people would label as morbid images. The horrendous reality of war and political instability that Mexicans endured from 1810 to the late1930â€™s inspired many great artists. Some wanted to use their artistic abilities to attest to the brutal living conditions of every day life in Mexico. Others used their art to express their political opinions. When Gabriela paints or creates sculptures she uses a fusion of influences from her native country, drawing on the influence of Jose Maria Velasco and his landscapes, Posada and his morbid sense of humor, Diego Rivera and his desire to show us the harsh reality of life experienced by the Mexican peasants oppressed by corrupt governments, and Frieda Kahlo, who painted from the heart communicating a sense of physical and psychological anguish. Gabriela aims at raising awareness regarding the living conditions of the Mexican indigenous people who have been marginalized by economic realities and social discrimination. As an activist, Gabriela uses her art as a venue for social commentary in the hope that indigenous people are not forgotten. In an era where Zapatistas have put down their guns and use words as a weapon against tyranny, she uses her art to compliment the messages of peace and respect for human rights emanating from the jungles of Mexico. Her landscapes are memories of her childhood recorded for posterity. As urbanization takes over the Mexican landscape, Gabriela wants to show the world the beauty of Mexicoâ€™s countryside before it fades away.

She received several awards and bursaries in UK.

Right from the beginning I have always been interested in translating emotions into a visual language, to give feelings form. Thematically the work moves between opposite poles: the personal, things I have experienced, seen, imagined or dreamt; and the political, where secondary source material generates primary images. The underlying subject throughout all my work could best be described with the word CONFLICT. This can be of a political nature or equally inspired by autobiographical events.
