Hello, Bonjour, Hola, Ciao, Hallo, Hej and 你好 Welcome to my Art. I have been an abstract expressionist painter since my early teens. The immediacy and freshness of this style as well as its complexity and boldness has always spoken to me. To this end I usually paint with acrylic paint in an alla prima style, in a spontaneous and physical way, moving back and forth across the canvas, making marks that dance across that surface. I start by introducing colour, shapes and line, then respond to their development. I move these elements around, adding and removing paint in multiple layers, having been described as an emotional painter, I am free to indulge and be spontaneous experimenting with colours and textures, creating multiple layers resulting in visceral unique painting with mood and depth, as I paint I recreate a part of my own story, as you view hopefully you create your own. I've been described as an emotional painter, my abstract paintings are my first love as I am free to indulge and be spontaneous experimenting with colours and textures, creating multiple layers resulting in visceral unique painting with mood and depth. My paintings are in customers homes all over the world, Australia, Canada, Finland, Germany, Ireland, Netherlands, Spain, UK and the USA   My inspiration comes whilst walking on the beach or in the many Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty that Wales has; a holiday I've taken, seasons, landscapes and my imagination. In my abstracts I try to express my personal thoughts and emotions which I capture on canvas and express through bold colour, strong composition, textures and shapes I thoroughly enjoy creating and sharing my art with you and am honoured and overjoyed to the buyers who decide to make a purchase to display my art in their homes.

Born in Ukraine. Work as engineer designer but I try not to become a spiritual hostage to my work . Autodidact artist,whose imagination is developing according to the life experience with the post-Soviet imagery minds on the verge of schizophrenia which is manifested in recent time, converging with the impact of the literature and movies(basically mystic,like David Linch...) and with the great influence of love to pure nature - All this reflected on the yet unformed style which is trying to escape from the imposed system of the iron curtain of our exposed eastern European society. Tourist-Introvert by the nature I can stay by myself for a long time creating my own world while listening music and riding the bycicle through the forest. Maybe I chose painting to express myself because of philosophy of moments . Through our life we experience some beauty moments that happend accidentally (Some appear in the elementary things) or were gained by hard work . The same experience we can contemplate on canvas . Once we have laid some amount of paint on canvas we can not replay our acts . My paintings invoke somethings mysterious,perhaps because of rejecting the futility of existence by filling this with oracular sense . But I try not to fulfill the painting leaving the viewers to contemplate with their own imagination,whether it is poetically,perversely,funny or all at once.

My main theme is our nature that surrounds us, which we interact with. These murals are fictional vistas balancing between abstract and figurative art. The rich artistic display, the relationship between plane and space, vibrating colours, variant shapes, the contrast of the powerful UV reagents and subdued tones gives my paintings movement and excitement

Info:

I was born in S. Jorge, and now live and work in the small medieval town of Porto de Mos, located in the centre of Portugal. I began my education at the Antonio Arroio school for the decorative arts, and finished it attending an art course (1982/85) at the National Society of Fine Arts. In the past, my paintings were of, what I like to call, figurative expressionist nature. As time passed, the figurative elements began to dilute. Now, and looking forward, I focus mostly on pure abstraction, lightly touching upon abstraction expressionist. The paintings of colored lines, wid or narrow, appear as a turning point in my most recent work. Contrasts, calm harmony, balance and tonal beauty characterise these 'lines paintings'. The bright palette ranges from strong, full colours tones, to soft watercolour values and finds its peak with an almost "black and white" intensity, applied in parallel on the canvas.

morena beltrami
morena beltrami Vote Number of votes: 1/50
Info:

Morena Beltrami est né à Modène (Italie) en janvier 1965. C'est une artiste très sensible aux besoins de la société. Morena Beltrami ne se cache pas derrière aux masques hypocrites de ceux qui «restent silencieux et consentants», mais elle parvient à transposer dans les images la sensation de détresse sociale en œuvres uniques de haute qualité et très expressif. Ses pensées prennent forme et ils reviennent à la vie dans ses peintures avec des taches de couleurs vives et intenses qui vont remplir des espaces chaotiquement et frénétiquement, parfois en colère et au même temps poétique et évocateur. Apparemment, les formes qui émergent, elles ressemblent non-sens, mais rien n'est jamais laissé au hasard. Avec l'utilisation de craies de couleur et de stylos acryliques, les images prennent bientôt les connotations programmées de formes sombres, de personnages maudits et d'âmes inquiètes qui représentent les «cris» du peuple, déni de justice à l'innocent et parfois l'âme inquiète de l'artiste, capable d'arriver au cœur et à l'âme de l'observateur. Les travaux de Morena Beltrami sont destinés à rester dans le temps parce qu'elles représentent la réalité concrète de nos conditions sociales pratiquement à la débâcle, sans plus l'esprit pour avoir des idées et des projets pour l'avenir. L'artiste ouvre une petite fenêtre sur l'art en introduisant un nouveau contexte non contaminé par des techniques monotones et répétitives. L'âme de ceux qui admirent l'œuvre de Morena Beltrami sera envahi d'émotions fortes et intenses à cause de son concept, de son expressivité et de son résultat final. Ses œuvres restent gravées dans nos esprits pour nous faire réfléchir. Morena Beltrami a participé à des compétitions nationales et internationales. Artiste sélectionné en 2012 pour “Orler Art” “Artetivù” avec télévente à Marcon (Venise), et exposition collective à Londres (Brick Lane Gallery et la Galerie Royale de Londres) en Janvier et Avril 2015, exposition à la Galerie Quirinus Stokolm en Suède en Mai 2016.

Elena Zaharia
Elena Zaharia Vote Number of votes: 4/50
Info:

ElenaZaharia creates pop art paintings, mixed media artworks and new medias designs. By using popular themes such as sexuality and everyday life, Elena wants the viewer to become part of the art as a kind of added component. In her new medias , multilayered images arise in which the fragility and instability of our seemingly certain reality is questioned. Her use of colors are visions that reflect a sensation of indisputability and serene contemplation, combined with subtle details of eccentric or odd elements. Her works often refers to pop and mass culture. Using symbols she creates situations and breaks the passivity of the spectator, she touches various overlapping themes and strategies.Her works sometimes radiate descriptive intensities of emerging beauty. The inherent visual seductiveness, along with the conciseness of the exhibitions, further complicates the reception of their manifold layers of meaning.

Dougie Hayz
Dougie Hayz Vote Number of votes: 4/50
Info:

“The Art of Dougie Hayz is a contemporary blend of absurd pop culture meets the technological age. Doug’s art focuses on the more important things in life. Like what if OJ Simpson and Screech from Saved by the Bell had a baby with a high pitched voice and carving knives for hands. Doug's art is what television will look like 200 years from now when we can look back and not be horrified. It’s a bold and seemingly senseless jangle that makes you happy for reasons you can’t quite explain. Like a hidden 3d picture, or hologram cards of your favorite superheroes." --- The HMC aka The Healthiest Man In Canada

BIOGRAPHIE J'étais au collège en classe de 6ème, lorsque mon professeur de dessin décida un jour de convoquer mes parents. Cette rencontre qui avait pour but de m'orienter vers des études artistiques, allait radicalement changer le cours de ma vie. Dès lors, j'ai toujours considéré que l'art et la peinture en particulier allaient faire partie intégrante de mon existence. Après un long parcours jalonné de rencontres artistiques, d'expositions, de fréquentations assidues de groupes de dessin, croquis, peinture, sculpture et même poterie, j'ai créé et animé un atelier durant 3 ans. Aujourd'hui je suis toujours amoureux du bel art et je vous propose de me suivre dans ma galerie où vous trouverez les créations des dernières années jusqu’à ce jour. Vous pourrez remarquer ainsi comment ma peinture a pu évoluer entre figuratif et abstraction, pour s'installer depuis dans un climat conceptuel moderne. Mais avant de vous remercier de votre visite et de vos éventuels commentaires, je vais vous raconter comment je suis reparti dans la spirale de cette influence. Bien cordialement………..Alain ‘’ Dans l'escalier qui conduit au plancher de mon grenier l'envie est grande de retrouver les quelques toiles laissées par mon père. A chaque pas, c'est le bois qui grince et qui propose son atmosphère toute particulière d'une quête pleine d'espoir. Le rayon de lumière filtré par la petite lucarne m'indique avec précision la poutre maîtresse où sont appuyés les tableaux. Encore une enjambée et voilà......Je procède délicatement et m'empare de l'une des œuvres, c'est un paysage, un voyage, un horizon ou plutôt une aventure. Je commence dès lors à laisser cheminer l'idée de reprendre à mon tour les pinceaux. Quoi de plus magique pour poursuivre l'évasion ‘’
