JARED BETTS | CANADA
From Canada, Jared Betts earned a BFA from NSCAD University. His work has been exhibited in over 100 exhibitions including, Costa Rica, Canada, Paris, London, New York City, Germany and Iceland. His paintings inhabit the space where consciousness descends into dream; where color theory, cyborgs and repeating patterns expand to become an immersive sensory experience. Inspiration is drawn from 80s fashion, his past life as a mermaid & alien abduction.
JEAN-PIERRE POISSON | FRANCE
Having also been a jazz pianist, Jean-Pierre Poisson uses improvisation in the same way for his paintings: harmony of colours instead of sounds, with total freedom of creation. His artistic language is very personal. He contrasts transparency with layers, and he uses a wide range of colours where black, in spots or in broad trails, intensifies the other colours. He lives in France.
JEFF MURRAY | UNITED KINGDOM www.jeffmurray.co.uk
When you stare deep into something, it can sometimes stare deep back into you. I create intricate artworks using pen and ink, inspired from travel, nature and urban landscapes. Including a series of country and continents, surreal animals and abstract cityscapes, these works show my journey throughout life. I invite my viewers to â€˜Look Closerâ€™ so that they can see more and more each time the gaze into them.

JIETING CHEN | UNITED STATES www.jietingchen.com
Working from New York, Jieting Chen creates work that draws from Chinese painting traditions and incorporates a feminine perspective. She uses water as much as the paint itself to imbue each work with character and space, emphasizing the contrast between softness and hardness with each of her pieces.
