Dylan Shields was born in Brighton UK. He traveled extensively, working, absorbing other people and cultures, before returning to the UK to study Fine Art at Northumbria University in Newcastle. Whilst at University he was invited to enter, and consequently won the competition to design the Dutch 2 Euro Erasmus Commemorative coin, 2011. Dylan now lives and works in London. Dylan is an artist predominantly focused on sculpture, investigating the relationship between traditional, narrative painting and contemporary materials. He explores the relationship between art history and its context in modern society, highlighting the forgotten narratives of old masters. He uses re-cycled cardboard and parcel tape to produce work that is at once familiar but dramatized by its original use of form and perspective.

” My work is interested in the phenomenon of making memories. By constructing scopes that project future nostalgias, my paintings aim to channel a mundane hedonism, fueled by a cloud of expectations and threat of the ordinary. In drawing from the traditions of both the grand portrait and the DIY genre of decorative pattern painting, the paintings start in a place of ‘pretty’, and, in examining the subjects’ dysfunctional relationship with their environment, become increasingly violated through the use of garish color, rough texture, and a surface sediment of opulent, store-bought, celebratory trash. Referencing holiday photographs, family portraits, and the materiality of disposable decor, my paintings attempt to create expected histories.” – Celeste Rapone

Jason Haggerty is a visual artist based out of the Gold Coast currently completing his Bachelor Degree in Digital Media, majoring in Fine Art and Art Theory at Queensland College of Art. The central concern of his research is the growth and rapid evolution of cyberspace, the ways in which intense streams of information are shifting the nature of human interaction, concepts of self, popular culture, social networks, advertising, and the duality of online and offline presence and the overlapping of online content into real life. Utilising technology and new medias such as motion and body tracking, video, computer software, audio synthesisers and 3D modelling/printing, Jason’s practice challenges the conceived notions of art making, with installations and digital sculptures that place the viewer’s experience as paramount. With an appreciation for art practice, art theory and curatorship, Jason has worked closely with Griffith University’s White Box Gallery and Jugglers Artspace to curate and install various exhibitions, and also completed an internship at The Walls Gallery at Rabbit+Cocoon.

Also I was working on few illustrations on movie project with Viktor Antonov. Now I’m working as concept artist in Vatra Games Studio, Brno, Czech Republic.” – Sergey Kolesov aka Peleng

Some say that artist Chris Maynard is slightly feather-obsessed. “It’s true,” he says, “my work with feathers gives me a satisfying perch from which to view the world.” He only has time to turn a small portion of his ideas, which fill many notebooks, into feather designs. His favorite tools are the tiny eye surgery scissors, forceps, and magnifying glasses passed down through his family.

Jorge Santos paintings are a profound display of picture making for the sheer purposes of formulating an all but transparent narrative via highly technical draftsmanship and paint handling. As a self-taught artist, the evolutionary process of his work is often subject to reconfiguration, repositioning, and refinement until the grand conclusion is met. Narrative is of such importance that even compositional concerns may be subordinate to the inclusion of a necessary motif in the storyline.
