Davide Cristofaro Anders Ekelund Anna Engebrethsen
Maurizio Caruso was born in Italy. He paints since time immemorial, from childhood he drew everywhere, spattered, leaved his marks and, as he did not have the money to buy paper sheets, he used anything that could be used: even the bread wrapping. After junior high school he went to the Liceo artistico statale of Cosenza (an art vocational school). After his art diploma, he moved to Padova for work, hanged out in nearby Venice were he
Born in a little coastal town in Sweden called Falkenberg, Anna Engebrethsen is a well-traveled artist. At only 27 years old, she has already exhibited her paintings in great places around the world. She has participated in exhibitions at the Grand Louvre in Paris, at Grimaldi Forum in Monaco, Gallery 69 in New York, Art Gallery ADA in Barcelona and latest at Dubai International Art Center in Dubai, to name a few.
With thick layers of oil, she tells the story of the often forgotten world, the world that keeps all the forest creatures and contains the spirit of life. With her unique technique she takes advantage of the Scandinavian color scheme and lets the abstract structure on the canvas create clear pictures of a flourished nature in our minds. She finds her inspiration in the nature, in humans and our hearts. Doc. Riccardo Baldelli wrote in an art critical review "Artists like Anna Engebrethsen could be the bridge between nature and humans that we have lost and that only a young soul like Anna can give us back." Visit her website www.annaengebrethsen.com for more information and pictures of her art works.
After many layers of paint she finally decides what to bring to the surface to be seen by others. In her work different people see different things and the artist finds that very interesting. She enjoys hearing about what you see when your imagination flows, your eyes go deeper, beyond the surface and let forms, shapes and figures reveal themselves before you. Since 2011 Anna-Stina has her own studio in Åby outside of Norrköping where she paint and hold classes for all ages. She is involved in a project where schoolchildren can come to her studio to get inspiration to create and to be able to feel the flow of creation.

Michelina Gatti Michelina Gatti was born in a village in the north of Toscana, Italy. As a child she moved with her parents and siblings to the town of Västerås in Sweden. Art has always been her passion since her early years. First she combined a working life in a private company with her painting activities. Nowadays she is able to focus entirely on her artistic occupation. She uses oil paint, water colour and acrylic paint. Her painting style is figurative but not in a detailed and photographic way. The images, forms and motives are depicted in a blurred and floating way; she wants to express feelings and emotions and she tries to catch the soul of her motives when she paints. She has attended many courses led by different artists in Västerås. She has also joined several painting courses at a school of art called Gerlesborg in the county of Bohuslän, Sweden, where artists like Lars Holm, Anders Wallin and Hasse Karlsson were inspiring teachers. She has attended a one year course in an art program at Skinnskattebergs Folkhögskola where she took classes in oil paint, water colour, acrylic paint and silk screen printing/serigraphy. She is a member of the Swedish Art Association (Svenska Konstnärsförbundet, SK), the Water Colour Art Association (Nordiska Akvarellsällskapet, NAS) and she is also a member of a group of artists called Änglagruppen with a studio at the school of Sörby in the outskirts of Ängelsberg.

In her work she prefers to stay with the impulse for as long as possible. She let the colour lead the way and paint intuitive.

Eta Hedman Freja Hjälmbåge Freja Hjälmbåge is the Swedish artist that feels her roots are partly coming from the original shape of a rock engraving from Fossum in Bohuslä in Sweden, 3114-2614 years ago, from The Bronze Age. ”A Dancing Sacred Goddess”. Because of her huge interest in the spieces homo sapiens, and the development of this spieces, Freja Hjälmbåge studied to anthropologist (the science of humans/homo sapiens), she also made a lot of fieldwork. It was her own inner knowing that found wich places to go. And she always found great ”power-places” out in Mother Nature, who had also been used back in the human story of time for various ”healing-aims”. In the year 2009 Freja Hjälmbåge made a big installation that was part of the exhibition ”media art”, in the Arthall of Trollhättan, Sweden. It was called ”The Big Mystery” and included screen prints on exclusive woven cottonweb hand crafted by herself, where one of the designs where the original engraving ”A Dancing Sacred Goddess”. Painting, dancing, singing, storytelling, reading and playing music
is the childhood background Freja Hjälmbåge comes from. She is also an educated designer/manageress/textile-engineer, and a qualified healer. She have been working with her own classes in topics like colour science, shape science, construction science, individual development, drum journeying and meditative and sacred dancing. She has been working with children as well as adults. As an artist Freja Hjälmbåge is mostly autodidact, even though she studiously learned some fundamental knowledge through working along with experienced artists. She was working with modellpainting, portrait, still life, in various media, graphic and linocut. But as the years went by she began dreaming of beeing able to release the concepts she had learned, because she wanted her feelings, deep emotions and spirituality to come out moore freely when she painted. It took many years, and Freja Hjälmbåge worked in periods of time with the new way of painting, simultaneously along other things, like partly her own indiviual development and working with clients personal development and group meditations. Today Freja Hjälmbåge is a very bold artist who loves glorious, vibrant and strong colours and she find it practical for her to work with different acrylic mediums. Her works come from her love and passion, from her heart and spirit and she is always experimenting with new ways to express herself. It is the sacred path of her life – ”FREJA ART Sweden”, love, positive energy and awareness.

Lambarri Lambarri, with a unique vision and approach about our role in life and the drama of loosing reality´s compass, express himself with the simple argument allowed by substances and colors. Lambarri enters into the Arts in a committed and total way, after strolling through the different techniques and themes that suggest him a fertile ground, finds the way or try to understand the presence of being at this physical plane, so complex as thought and its programming and so simple and infinite as unconditional love. It is therefore a journey in the sensations and emotions, more than in the intellectual interpretation. In society like in the human body, actions and movements are in full performance, these are part of the organism to which they belong; artistic expressions are nothing but a way to understand our Universe and the elements comprising it. No subject is outside the interest of people, curious, proud and arrogant in addition to a long list. Entering the field that interests him, the emotions, and trying to find shortcuts to get directly to the sensations, in order to avoid the dangers of being received by prejudice and its complex system of knowledge, it is not easy to get out of the path of methodical programming systems caused by cultural, family and religious beliefs. The adventure is well worth the risk of being rejected, criticized, accused and even worse, not being able to demolded. We did not realize how insensitive we become the more we intellectualize. He wonders if there is anything that human beings provide or influence on the great social movements of a humanity that could act under the influence of a planet that generates changes according to their own needs. This leads him to wonder if perhaps the human being is an actor with a script. Are we actors or writers? Do we write a script or so we think? Do we just move? It seems that even in our annoyance and disapproval changes occur, the course of history continues to progress, we keep filling libraries, museums and galleries, the works still, the creators disappear, time is responsible for cataloging a piece either as trash, decorative object or a piece of art.

She believes that watercolor art is a very powerful way to express the feelings and can be effectively used to represent the artistic vision on a piece of paper. Watercolor paintings are considered an unique way to creatively represent dreams, illusions and emotions using watersoluble pigments. This highly dynamic process makes each painting an exciting adventure. She likes to paint primarily in transparent watercolor because its character allows for a wonderful blending of spontaneity and control.

Elisa Muzzillo Renata Magdalena Gabriella Nilsson Eva-Lotta Persson Gabriella Nilsson is an artist, born 1973 in Avesta, Sweden, where she still lives and works. Painting has become a very important part of her life, above all because it makes her feel good, but if the viewers like her art it makes her even happier. She works mostly with acrylic and oil colours and the motives and techniques vary greatly. A lot of things inspire her, but you can often find a sense of nostalgia in her art. Through the years the themes have been everything from dancing couples, café paintings and cats, to nature scenes and also some Vedic art. Lately she prefers to create her “rain paintings”, where the motive often is a lonely woman walking in the rain with an umbrella and with a diffuse background. She sees herself mostly as an autodidact, but she has taken several courses both in art and graphic design, and also at a folk high school. She has participated in multiple art exhibitions the last couple of years, among others Stockholm Art Salon 2014, but this is her first exhibition abroad. Website: www.galleriella.dinstudio.se

Susanne Wikström lives and works in Västerås, Sweden. She has studied art for four years. She now works mostly with screenprinting and painting, and preferably both screenprinting and painting in combination on canvas and in large format. She feels that an exciting mix is created by combining various techniques. She most often uses acrylic for her paintings, as these are water-based and dry quickly, and she also uses acrylic for screenprinting. The colour scale she uses leans most often towards the rather muted range, and Payne´s grey is one of her current favourites; she likes it and thinks that the colour feels beautiful, yet brings a touch of melancholy. Susanne enjoys working with a theme, and for several years now her paintings contains interior environments and older houses. The rooms she creates most often have influences of the past with traces of history. Susanne explains that when she was a young teenager she received a painting assignment from her grandfather, which involved repainting his recreation room. “Guess how surprised my grandfather was,” says Susanne, “when he opened the door to the room and saw the walls decorated with animals of all forms and colours. He burst into hearty laughter. My explanation was that the animals needed a house and a room. That is something we all need: a physical, spiritual and historical room. A room is not just a room, nor a house. It carries something with it, for instance memories, a history. There are always traces of something, not only physical things such as interior furnishings, but also the social interaction it has experienced, some person or people who were there previously.” Susanne hopes that her rooms, each in their own way, inspire thought, imagination and reflection and she leaves the interpretation over to the eye of the beholder.
