SHINICHI TASHIRO Japan email@example.com Japanese street artist Shinichi Tashiro is known for constructing highly inventive collages that make humorous commentaries on subjects from fashion to consumer culture. Thus far, his artworks have been well received by international art collectors, along with celebrated street-artists like Mr. Brainwash and Nick Walker. In order to feed his creative passion, the adventurous Shikoku-born native was determined to lead an unconventional life. At only eighteen, Shinichi moved to Tokyo where he sold postcards to make a living. Two years later, he travelled to New York, where he lived homelessly in Central Park for a year. These difficult conditions proved to be catalytic for the young visionary, who repeatedly rejected commercial job offers in favor of maintaining his artistic integrity. Due to this critical decision, Shinichiâ€™s playful-looking collages often belie a quick-witted and satiric edge. Upon being interviewed on his unusual lifestyle, the streetwise artist simply replied, â€œI just like it.â€? Currently, works by the rising young artist are being shown alongside renowned Japanese artists like Kusama Yayoi and Nara Yoshitomo.es.
The Netherlands www.henkveen.nl Henk Veen, rasechte Amsterdammer, haalt zijn inspiratie uit het leven dat hij leeft in Amsterdam.

Her paintings are shown in various exhibitions. In December 2012 Loes received the ‘Global Award’ trophy in Amsterdam. Over the years Loes developed her very recognizable character which she calls ‘Pjipje’. The paintings of Loes van Delft combine an innocent quirkiness with a cheeky cartoon feel. Bluring the borders between fine brush strokes and commercialism, the characters are endearing, charming and amazingly vivid.
MAURICE VAN TILBURG Netherlands www.mauricevantilburg.com Title: Hidden Sacrifice The Hidden Sacrifice concept I like many of Maurice van Tilburg-Glimneâ€™s concepts part of his personal learning; his meaningful journey. It is about his exploration of the relationship between humans and animals. Starting from a wonderment about the way animals and animal products are a normalized part of everyday consumption, he investigates drivers and patterns influencing human behavior. The objects are materialized thoughts of the artist in discussion with himself, using literature and research as means of reflection. Van Tilburg-Glimne uses parchment as key material for his art works, adding other objects along the journey finally displaying it in old and used glass bells.

YELENA LEZHEN ART United States www.lenazhenart.com Our human shapes, our curves, are the curves of stones, softened by millennium of turbulence; the curves of birds, our prehistoric cousins; the curves of horses, our proud servants for centuries.

I express my emotions and femininity, painting destruction towards the Earth and its redemption.
BARBIE STATTMAN United States www.barbiestattman.com I am deeply inspired by folk art, story telling, surrealism and mythology. In my art, I strive to capture expression of color and line work alongside movement and flow in order to guide my audiences through a fantastical perspective.

BEA PALATINUS ABSTRACT ART Hungary www.beapalatinus.com Painting to me has always been a journey, a venture into experimenting and learning. My paintings are born from a dialogue of colors, balance and composition and are also about exploring where the limits of artistic freedom lay.

MOD | MARCELA OLIVIA DORANTES United States www.marceladorantes.com Marcela Olivia Dorantes examines the interactions of wildlife, domestic animals and humans to express the experience of expansiveness, intimacy, domesticity and remoteness through her keen sense of space, shape, color and form. Birds, bears, dogs, and felines represent unfettered spiritual creatures symbolizing the transcendence of prosaic life. Using the versitility of color in her art is her exclamation of gratitude to the world and synergy of life.
MAGALI KATRA Lebanon www.magalikatra.com â€œThat her finished work is so heavily stylized, smooth and cool suggests that Katra has worked out and refined an aesthetic long before setting foot in her studio. Her imagery draws on fashion illustration, the confluence of art and design, and, most importantly for the artist, her fascination with human behavior â€œ K.W.The Daily Star Newspaper

PIA SAWHNEY United States www.pia.ink The featured pieces are hyper realistic digital paintings; they are the result of experiments with reality, with colors, with obscure angles. The two artworks strap a surreal lens on the viewer, allowing her to see character in inanimate objects. Their pastel palette consistency and technicality highlight a tongue-in-cheek message. Unassertive yet knowing. Unnerving yet satisfying.

SILKE NATSCHKE United States www.natschkeart.net Front and back of these works are equally valuable, defying a traditional way of seeing them. Tradition as such is at stake. The production of these pieces stresses the act of empathizing with the artistic environment. There is a tension in having the two sides or faces coexist. Creating two art pieces in one process evokes the ambiguity of the human state, which is the original idea for this work.

TATAWA (WEI TAN) Malaysia www.tatawaart.com Tatawa’s art is an act of self-revelation through improvisation. Each artwork is a journal entry where outer influences are purged and inner responses are confessed. Like making soup, materials are thrown onto the canvas and mixed together through spontaneous gesture. Each layer of outer influence is shredded until the limitation of habit is revealed. This limitation is then challenged so that each painting is a set of broken habits.

TROI LUNA CLUSE United States cluseinkllc.com The Angel of Death series takes a different point of view in the perception of Death.Rather than viewing her as this dark & ominous figure that’s an inevitable force of nature, I wanted to view it as something beautiful, elegant and as a transition to a new phase in life.

VINCENT MIGNARD Netherlands www.mylifeinboxes.fr â€œMy life in boxesâ€? is the hymn to nomadism of a French-born chameleon. Driven by the urgency to stay off the beaten path, this is all about a quest for an idealism where serenity would take over fear. All these boxes are milestones of a life, the exhaust valve of a boiling square brain. Each box is triggered by life events where delivering become suddenly a vital necessity.

YASEEN M. TOM Sudan email@example.com I started to paint when I realized that I have the ability and interest to do so. I found that art is a great way to express my feeling, views and philosophy. I’ve been influenced by existentialism and many of my works are aiming to deliver such kind of messages to the world. Most of my paintings are considered dark but always there’s a bright side in the deepest darkness.
YUKI YAMAMOTO Chile www.yukiyamamoto.cl Houses, as the basic feeling of belonging. Holds us inside protecting us. As a mother protects his child inside the womb. This basic instinct of shelter is what is implied in my work. My inner need of being protected. Covered from outsider risks. Though the houses are not alone, they are gathered among many, being connected as the web we live in. Because we need each others as well.
ZHENI MASLAROVA WARNER United Kingdom www.zheni.co.uk I am a traditional painter who uses modern methods. Like the renaissance artists, I use light, colour and shape to form an harmonious whole. Light comes wherever I can find it: from the paint itself, light boxes, illuminated wire, neon, often weaving them together. Now there are two paintings! One with lights on, one with lights off, both equally coherent and exciting.
