Editor’s Note Every time I meet an artist, I always find myself interested in how their work has evolved over the years. More often than not it’s difficult to understand their journeys. They go from practice scratchings on a paper as an art student to paintings on gallery-wrapped canvases in a brilliant solo show. And it’s not limited to “trained” artists. I have observed self-taught artists start with childish sketches and over the years their works are celebrated in the industry. And these journeys are always fascinating. FAKE Art is proud to present its second issue, that focuses on an artist’s journey. It’s difficult to chart this in two images only --- some have completely change their styles, some have changed medium, others have even changed their industries! And there are those who have retained their art personalities through the years. We have tried our best to choose a selection of works that have shown, either a lot, or very little variation, in work style. And each of the twenty nine artists are unique in their journeys. Some have taken months to evolve, some a year, and some have taken decades! It was a pleasure to see artists from around the world respond and an even bigger pleasure to see the calibre of work that was submitted. A big thanks to all the contributing artists! Happy arting!

Maxwell G Miller As I grow as an artist, my work develops to reflect the artwork I enjoy. Since my first self portrait, I’ve started using oil paints as I have gained an appreciation for classical realism and an academic approach to painting. I’m excited to see where my work takes me next!

Mani Saemi My art journey started when i was 4 years old, I knew that I was creative and had a big passion for art from a young age. I see myself as an painter but I have more opportunity now to express myself by painting on canvas, paper, walls,coastal cliffs, clothes, mirrors, boards and naked skins. My work has changed a lot since 2017 and became more focused on fashion. The change from fine art to fashion started when I asked myself why not be the sculpture. I was tired of still art so I focused my career on something that I found myself fall in love with.

Robert Connolly My work has changed surprisingly little - I still occasionally make things, but it’s mostly performance, as it was when I started, and there’s still often an element of humour or absurdity.

Alain Gavrilutiu What I learned while working on my paintings is that an artist should count more on instinct than on reason. To experience true creative freedom an artist should be able to empower his emotional self at such a level that will allow him to express his/her most intimate feelings, fears and wishes without thinking about it. As an artist I learned that to reach total honesty I must suppress the ego and with it the reflex of transforming intent into thought.

Ricardo Carioba I intent to create using the minimal elements of the visual and sound languages, often disturbing the habits of our sensibility. Many of my works were developed after laws or concepts from physics and use light to reveal some characteristics of space, present but usually invisible. I always try to explore in different ways the intervals, the emptiness that defines space. My intention is to disturb our linguistic and sensible habits in order to decondition it and make possible the birth of different forms of thinking and feeling. My works are created after recognizing a space empty of desire – they act inside of these empty spaces.

Jacqueline Valenzuela Over the years I have learned to really experiment with my paintings. Ultimately resulting in better integrated compositions. My paintings are becoming what I had imagined after countless years of struggling to get my ideas onto the canvas. Although I'm not always sure I still continue to push my limits.

Mani Saemi London, UK

Robert Connolly Oslo, Norway

I am a contemporary realist artist focusing mostly on portraiture and figure work. My primary influence stems from the emotional and dynamic visuals of romanticism artwork and capturing the expressive nature presented in classical realism. I hope that my work will introduce ideas of introspection through emotional and expressive imagery.

Mani Saemi, widely known as an Iranian painter, was born in Tehran, Iran in 1987. His passion of art emerged in the very early stages of his life which led him to work predominantly in the mediums of painting, illustration and graphic design. Living in a family with an artistic background helped him nurture his abilities in the field. Mani got his bachelor’s degree in visual communication with a focus on graphic design in 2009, beside which he pursued a degree in interior design.Through his art works, he has strived to separate himself from the intellectual bands that puts him in connection to this world. Instead, he has tried to get in touch with the world that is full of emotions and which is found in the different layers of our inner selves. The world that is the center of silence and that is defined by the colors and emotions. He believes his inspiration and energy comes from the nature and painting for him is a kind of meditation. Mani moved to England after seven years living and studying in art and Fashion design in Sweden. Mani is currently live in London and working as an painter and graphic and fashion designer.

I am a conceptual artist usually working in the category of performance art. My naturally severe authority figure-style appearance is typically combined with symbolically charged apparel and actions to enact a brief scenario or concept, often with an element of humour or the absurd.

Ioana Elecfi I love drawing as I am interested in studying and developing my line and I am curious about how it helps me in all other mediums. I enjoy playing with colour. My canvases are all works in acrylic. I sometimes make collages and recently I am playing with negative space.

Kate Theodosiou My ďŹ rst collective exhibition was while still at college studying photography. My ďŹ rst work remains, a work i personally love due to its medieval theme and also because it got published in National newspapers instead of the photo chosen by my college. I turned to drawing/painting through the years and my art has become more personal, more intense to match whatever it's happening in that particular moment in my life. My technique is improving as i'm drawing all the time and taking lessons experimenting with materials and mediums.

Jola Gmur “The limits of my language means the limits of my world” Following the thought of Ludwig Wittgenstein we may conclude that naming colour or some object is directly related to our knowledge of its subject. Due to our intuition it is possible to interpret any abstract phenomena. Let’s make a theoretical assumption that the “colour” does not exist. Identifying something as “blue” or “red” is just a matter of a specific “code” which we use in order to communicate with one another. However, when contemplating the same object, do we absolutely see the same thing? 20

Artur Silva Rios In the beginning, my paintings used to be representation of monster, going through self-portraits of animals with my face, now only animals, and I'm cogitating to paint humans again, but not being myself. My work walks through the non-human-animal and the human-animal as part of a same thing.

Farhad Babaei I started photography while I was studying Electronics and when I decided to enter the world of photography, I had no support and knowledge of photography yet I believe in faith power and I believe that if one loves their job and try, they will be successful. I live in the Iranian society, an Islamic country full of social, political and cultural contradictions. I think that studying these contradictions and viewing this process made me have wider point of view in photography. As a photographer, I tried to witness some events in Iran and take photos of important ones without being extremely biased. During these years, I tried to improve my job qualitatively and quantitatively by studying more and having more interaction with people, however this process is endless to me and I am learning every single day.

Kenneth Ricci My early collages were image/improvisations on a large board 24" x 48" where I selected and assembled with a strictly visual metric of success. Happenstance brought me to work on a 8" x 24" board which begged for a narrative element. Incorporating the narrative by way of caption/image juxtaposition I hope to have the panel resonate with a sensibility beyond the image itself.

Romanho Cid My work is an examination about the interaction between people and the news media. The sense of chaos we witness in whatever news we read daily make a huge impact in our daily life in different levels of our consciousness. We construct our life with those messages bombarded 24/7 designed to impact our social behaviors. A mental dialogue arises in us where we separate ourselves between us and them. Then my characters emerge in different forms and shapes, without shielding us from the world, creating a personal dialogue, altering the meanings of those words printed on the paper, transforming chaos into beauty. My raw emotions are shown on the subjects, graceful yet forceful, strong and defiant to tell my own story in a cubist/futurist dimension.

Reanna DiPaolo My art has changed over the years due to the materials I use and what my subject matter is. I started out using tons of texture and brushes to create abstract images, now I use pallet knives and more colors to excite the viewer.

Gradually, I started to pay more attention to the essence of things, to the mythological foundations of the world culture, I consider the influence of religion and mysticism, the relationship of physics and metaphysics.

Kaja Wielowiejska At the beginning of my path, the main motive of my search were elements taken directly from nature (man and landscape) referring to the nostalgic theme related to dying. The turning point was switching to the language of abstraction while maintaining the same content that I undertook in early painting.

Sonja Hillen “Teacosy” was the first project I worked on for a show after I graduated. In that period, my work was primarily influenced by motherhood. It was humorous, slightly cynical and self mocking. Lately, my work has evolved to become more serious and quiet. I draw with coloured pencil and I use embroidery. My most recent project is called “To the Heartland” and it reflects the place where I want to be. That may be a literal location, or a place which only exists in my head and in my heart.

Kaja Wielowiejska Warsaw, Poland

Karolina Cegiełkowska Warsaw, Poland

Sonja Hillen Nijmegen, The Netherlands

I am a student at the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw at the Faculty of Painting. I love minimalism art, which can be classified into a genre of geometrical abstraction and sometimes to the art of an object. Structured images, enriched with insertions of invoices referring to elements of nature.

I am two in one: architect and a painter. I was working in the biggest polish architecture office for ten years. Then I decided to look for my way in life. I found it in the process of painting. That was the way I started to express the real myself.

After a career as a nurse, I finished the art academy in 2004. Theemuts (Teacosy) was my first artwork in an exhibition. Christopher is my latest work. In both my two- and three-dimensional work, I use textile in a combination with drawing as well as embroidery.

Pit Kinzer 1987 the magazine "Graphische Kunst" wrote about Pit Kinzer's art combinatoria "...he stages and arranges, associates and quotes, he illuminates a theme from different perspectives and behind the mask of reality unexpected connections, meanings and subliminal backgrounds become visible ...". The same applies to his current working phase too.

Jack Kay My work and how I create it has evolved significantly. Previously I crafted sculptures through imitating relevant items or incorporated pre-manufactured objects to convey my chosen subject matter. I have now simplified my compositions to an abstract form, although I am always experimenting in adding and subtracting various elements.

Bruce Rimmel Over the past eleven years, my work has deepened and widened in its scope. Thematically I now tend to eschew tightly-focussed ideas towards conveying multiple imagistic experiences. My media has also radically transformed away from illustration into an innovative approach to painting with distinctive aesthetics which retain illustrative avours.

Ginger Cochran When I began exhibiting my work professionally, I started experimenting with watercolors and painted watercolor abstracts and animals. The first gallery where I exhibited preferred my smaller watercolor abstracts and they sold very well. "Destiny" was one of the first larger paintings I created and was slightly figurative, as I am heavily influenced/inspired by music. As my work has evolved, I began experimenting with various media and added notions of flora. Now I create small and large scale mixed media paintings on canvas. The changes in my work over the years have paved the way for several exhibitions, publications and juror opportunities.

ChaeWon Moon Brooklyn, USA

Jack Kay Inverness, Scotland

Born 1951, freelance artist, former typesetter and architect. nearly 800 solo shows and other exhibitions all over the world.

ChaeWon Moon is an interdisciplinary artist living and working in Brooklyn. She pull off pictures and texts from the manual and reassemble them into a pseudo-logic. Her work parodies the language of the manual; the document which supposed to present a concrete and helpful solution as a tool for alluding imperfection of rules and system. The original utility is edited during the process of painting and printing, and this transfer allows the viewer to think about multiple meanings instead of a single, concrete conclusion.

I am a political/protest artist, using alternative materials such as leather and acid to produce sculptural compositions which illustrate the social and personal political aspects which can and/or have affected the everyday lives of people. These pieces not only illuminate the physical “pain� but also the psychological scars left behind.

Bruce Rimmel UK

Sumantra Mukherjee Kolkata, India

Ginger Cochran Denton, USA

Bruce Rimell is a British visual artist whose work addresses visionary, ethnographic, archaeological, queer and cognitive themes. His imagery combines these disparate elements towards a single holistic aim – Beyond-The-Self Exploration – and multiple narratives are enfolded to create the sense of experiential depth and hyperactive visual engagement.

I am a graduate from The Government College of Art and Craft, Kolkata (2005). Since then I have been practicing and being participating in several shows. I make imagery reflecting my everyday surroundings, living in contemporary Indian society. Like my surroundings the works are loud, colorful, whimsical and chaotic. Subjects are chosen through emphatic involvement and understanding of local difficulties and changes. This allows a local public, not necessarily interested in artistic practice, to be involved and addressed by my images. Although I am aware this might cause the work to be less accessible to those who are not familiar with daily situations faced here, I hope the visualization of the particular, might lead to a broader understanding of the universal. Trained as a draughtsman, I feel most comfortable when approaching my work as a drawing, even though my physical practice extends to (wall-and-street) painting, sculpture and design.

Fresh. Romantic. Uplifting. Those are only three of the many ways my paintings have been described. It’s this that I strive to have my artwork embody….a feeling or story that someone cherishes in their own part of this life. A dear relationship with a loved one, a dream, or even a memory. But how to do I describe my paintings? A creative journey. A small snapshot into my personal expedition. And through my journey, I hope for viewers to create their own stories and journeys; to ponder what each piece brings to them on a personal level.

Harshita Nandwani Art pulls you towards itself. My well-paid job could not tilt the balance. I started with painting the outer world, but art made me aware of my inner-self and it reflected in my work too. My work become more abstract and mature with time. It started connecting with people. My work is now a reflection between my hands & heart, without letting my brain interfere.

Denis Malbos Frustration, transparency and fascination. “You can see it but not touch it!” led to onanism – obviously a comfortable but rather limited derivative. And to reach for the inaccessible, to explore the limits, absolutely. Why is it forbidden? What is behind, what is inside? How to realize the impossible. How to lift up the mountains? These are the fundamental unanswered questions that still drive my life and work.

Karen Grosman Toronto, Canada

Harshita is an abstract artist. Her work reflects her journey.

Paul Edward Pinkman Plainfield, USA

Eliana Pernigotti (Perni) Cañuelas, Argentina

Authenticity has been a driving force in Mr. Pinkman’s work. He paints ambidextrously avoiding studied strokes and lines. An enduring goal is to illuminate his essential self through the perception of space and object. “My works are conceptual in the truest sense; the idea is as important as its execution.”

Perni is an artist from Argentina. Her work has been published in "WotisArt Magazine", UK (December 2018), and "Good Art Guide", USA (June 2017). She participated in the Art Fair "BADA", the "Buenos Aires Arte Experience", and the International Art Fair of Contemporary Art in the Borges Cultural Centre.
