Alice Andreoli

Alice Andreoli's most current series of works hope to explore the notion of the student, 'gap year'. "Gap year" means the need, for the young people at a certain time of their life, to suspend any activity, any plan involving an existential project, in order to reflect upon themselves and their future." she says, adding, "My work is aimed to symbolize and understand this existential gap." Born in 1979 Andreoli studied a postgraduate in painting at the Accademia di Belle Arti in Venice. She has participated in numerous exhibitions across Italy where she presently lives and works and has works in numerous private collections.

XY ankamierzejewska

A painting is deemed to be expressionistic if it distorts the image significantly in order to create an image that matches the one in the painter’s mind. This collection is of very beautiful expressionistic works that glow and growl with a potent energy and pop with a colourful explosion onto the canvass. See how her rendering of Andy Warhol moves with an intense energy, befitting its subject perfectly. The greens and reds collide emphatically, causing the forms to dance in front of the viewers’ eyes. Her series on the great painters shows the enthusiasm and personality of each artist, while also creating a fabulous series of individual works. In her hands, Pepsi cans come to life and interact in a most familiar manner, writhing and bonding with the most human of touches. She paints with such a wonderful style and individualistic touch, only the most cold-hearted viewer would fail to be moved. Check out the extensive list of her exhibitions in Poland and enjoy viewing this lively work.

Mirek Antoniewicz

"My mind has always perceived painting as a process in which I am lucky to participate. It is wonderful to realise that one represents a tiny moment in this animation, which has continued on the earth for many thousands of years. The pigment, paste and the surface remain equally important as they were thousands of years ago. Nothing much has changed in this respect at all. I find the colours of the earth very close: ochres, siennas, umbers, and sepias. They beautifully render the mood of flowing time. Therefore, I have used these colours to paint vessels where water, olive oil and wine is stored." Mirek Antoniewicz

Victoria Ascanio

Victoria Ascanio is a Spanish artist who studied at the Ruskin College of Art in Oxford. She produces images of bathers: a traditional choice of subject matter since Titian, Michelangelo & Rembrandt. This subject was taken up again by Modern artists such as Seurat, Cezanne, Picasso & Matisse in order to develop stylistic innovations and express new attitudes toward the portrayal of the human form. Ascanio continues this innovation and is one of our few artists who explores the printmaking process known as collagraphy. This technique involves gluing a variety of textured materials to a cardboard or metal base before putting through the printing press, ensuring that an element of chance is included as well as the skilful manipulation of materials.

Nazik  Aslanyan

Born in 1977, Nazik Aslanyan lives and works in Yerevan, Armenia. His wide, blocked brush marks, combined with a vibrant and bold use of colour, are inspired by nature. "In my paintings I want to explore the most important feature of the Universe. I am trying to reach its essence. It is in everything: In the Sun, in flowers or trees, in all details of our life. Understanding of it is mean to reach a real happiness..." Nazik Aslanyan.

Filipe Assuncao

These confident oil paintings, with their rounded, textured forms call forth comparisons with Dubuffet, Guston even Picasso. Their comic-like cartoonish style endows the work with a charming simplicity yet it is clear that the artist knows exactly what he is doing. The animal/human forms are softly modulated with tonal gradations that simultaneously give them a monumental feel, as if seen at extremely close range. At times, the forms the thick outlines describe become transparent, serving to further the visual play between solid weight and a comic lightness.
