The Beautiful Art Work of Georgy Kurasov

By on September 17, 2013, in Paintings

Georgy Kurasov was born in 1958 in the USSR, in what was then Leningrad. He still lives and works in the same place, but now the country is Russia and the city is called St Petersburg. Without any effort on his part whatsoever, Georgy seems to have emigrated from one surreal country to another. His native city was irrational from the very moment of its foundation. Situated on the same latitude as the southern shores of Alaska, on the swampy delta of the River Neva where no one had ever settled before, this new capital city grew up on the very edge of a monstrous empire. Here on the totally flat surface carved across by rivers, streams and canals, European architects laid out, like images on a canvas, straight avenues, streets and squares, they built Greco-Roman porticoes and Baroque palazzi, erected sculptures and fountains, amidst something akin to permafrost where half the year is dominated by ice and frost and the other half by damp and rain. It is hard to find a more artificial – more artistic – city.

Girl with Gold Hair

I was born and grew up in the beautiful county of North Yorkshire. My interest in portraiture developed at an early age, during the seventies, when I used to draw my favorite pop idols such as David Bowie. My love of art led me to study Art and Design at the local college, and then later to specialise in Textile Design at Huddersfield Polytechnic.

Agnes Boulloche was born in Paris, she spent her childhood in Morocco. These young years in North Africa made Agnes a legend and Djinn connoisseur, a lover of the uncanny. Back in Paris in the Sixties, she was a student at the Ecole des Arts Décoratifs, in the followed years, she entirely concentrated on oil painting on wood panels using the old “glaze” technique which consist in superimposing thin transparent layers of colours and makes it possible to combine fine strokes and luminous tints.

Oil on Canvas by Dominique Hoffer

By on July 12, 2012, in Paintings

At first, I am working as a professional pilot for various swiss and south african airlines (1972-1988). In 1988, I quit cockpits and dedicate myself to painting. Oil on canvas has become my tool very soon. I like to figure strange, unusual, poetic situations and atmospheres, including these four elements, most of the time : Nature, characters, animals and objects. All elements are figured in a realistic manner, but in an unreal collection.

Art Work by David Lloyd Glover

By on July 3, 2012, in Paintings

John Lennon

Let there be light and DAVID LLOYD GLOVER will find it. A prolific painter, David uses the difficult medium of water-colour and deftly achieves a multi-layered emotional — and for some, transcendental experience. White light, if you will, becomes the portrait path of self- exploration and fulfilment and the illumination of truth and echoes of eternity are shared by both artist and audience.

Glover’s paintings are on 300lb, T.H. Saunders, Waterford-series cold pressed paper. Always, a detailed under drawing is executed in 2B pencil which is a discipline learned from Illustrating. He uses Winsor & Newton transparent water-colours and Winsor & Newton brushes as he believes that superior quality materials is so important when marketing your work through top level fine art galleries.

The Digital Art Work of Cindy Grundsten

By on June 23, 2012, in Graphic Design

My main interest is to create. In my years, I have created different things. I have worked among others with clay during a period. And I have created beautiful floral arrangements with dried flowers. I have also sewn vintage decorative teddy bears at one time. When I was a little girl I drew all day long. So when I look back on my life I have always loved to create in any form. Later in life, I have found happiness in creating images. I wish I could draw and paint freehand. It would be a dream. But there I have a lot to learn. So my way of creating images is through photo manipulation.

Probably everyone knows what photo manipulation means. But for those who are not familiar with the subject I’ll explain a little fast. When I start a new artwork I need many different photographs. I mostly get my source images from image banks. To create a background, I worked on several photos. I mix up the photos into a single image by using the various ways in my imaging software Photoshop. I pick also details from photos that I put in my art work. The hardest thing is to fuse all the details in a good way so that everything looks consistent out. It should look like that all the details I have built up the image actually belong to the image.
