 photo NowThen_zps5fe2f228.jpg  photo DNA_zps7b6c3573.jpg  photo Kathleen_zpsd95247f8.jpg  photo Mirrorman_zpsc9b9f16c.jpg Viviane Sassen (Dutch, born 1972) studied fashion design and photography before receiving an MFA from Ateliers Arnhem, the Netherlands. Some of her earliest memories are of life in Kenya, where she spent three years as a child. When her family returned to the Netherlands in 1978, Sassen was troubled: “I didn’t feel like I belonged in Europe, and yet I knew I was a foreigner in Africa,” she says. Ten years later, at age sixteen, Sassen revisited Kenya, and she has been traveling and working in Africa ever since. She made Parasomnia, her newest body of work, in a number of intentionally unidentified African countries, featuring anonymous subjects. Parasomnia is a category of sleep disorder whose symptoms include abnormal dreams, nightmares, and sleepwalking. In the surreal pictures in this installation, Sassen invites viewers to follow her on a journey through the mysterious remnants of her memories.

Born in 1989 in Riga, Latvia, as a bright kid, hungry for knowledge and adventure. After lots of travelling with family at early age, I finally feel at home now in Vilnius, Lithuania, where I currently reside and create. In love with traditional drawing, dry media and pencils, as well as forests, cycling and staying late at night." - Lena Klyukina  photo 79f3f71306d3f21293b1cb18b87b72cc_zpsecd4b5b2.jpg  photo 9612171_orig_zps456d0ec4.jpg  photo 3718998_orig_zps737cc4f4.jpg

The technique of repeating squares and triangles allows him to bring to life the famous people he depicts in his images. This checkered pattern, filled with different textures, lines, and shading, builds up to Eduardo Kobra's final masterpiece, a larger than life mural for all to see and marvel at."
