From drawings and sculptures that serve as models, the couple tries to create spaces; by crossing and fragmenting volumes, they recreate a dislocated, rickety universe that is, a priori, completely illogical.  photo FeipelBechameilhhF4_zpsd177b22b.jpg  photo FeipelBechameilhhF6_zps2f890fe8.jpg  photo FeipelBechameil_09_zps8377059e.jpg

In 2009 Fred decided to dedicate himself to painting. The “women painting” collection expresses the female beauty with its both sides – it is severe and delicate at the same time.

Mimi Yoon

 photo large2_zps8f8d247d.jpg  photo flat550x550075f_zps08d4d431.jpg For international artist Mimi Yoon, there is no concrete definition for art. To her it is simply that “art is.” Her artwork vibrates with tangible and sensual beauty and honesty. It subtly allures then climaxes to demand attention and is immediately unforgettable. Mimi has a BFA in Graphic Design from California State University Long Beach, and has founded an art academy for youth and mentored for 10 years before she started to paint her passion. When not painting, Mimi can be found curating art shows and contributing to local charities, with the goal of using the arts to bring raw honest humanity into the realm of community.  photo large1_zps8092dc53.jpg  photo tumblr_n1awrbTTU31qbmgeto3_500_zps4bd9169a.jpg

Claudia Giannuli

 photo Untitled-1_zps138d72de.jpg  photo 2-2_zps3a48d110.jpg  photo Untitled-3_zpsb33ad189.jpg Claudia Giannuli was born in Bari in 1979. She got her degree in Fine Arts in 2004 then she decided to keep herself away from the Accademy and find her personal style. Her “NU DOLLS” (as the artist Guido Corazziari defined them) are absolutely white creatures, cynical and irriverent, half-children, half-women. Their whiteness and purity are opposed to their sense of deep solitude, their dramatic existence in which man is just a walk-on actor, crucified at the right moment. The Nu Dolls stare at us proudly. Sometimes it seems they’re laughing at us like innocent and erotic post-atomic temptresses. Clay has always been her favorite material. In the last years Claudia has been mixing it with resin, wood, plastic, creating settings just like theatrical stages scrupulously built in scale. A little mnemonic architecture, halfway between fiction and reality.  photo Untitled-4_zps0390937f.jpg  photo Untitled-2_zps9e6b7114.jpg

 photo SomeLikeItHot_zpsf1999aeb.jpg  photo TheQuickBrownFox_zps85c78584.jpg  photo DrMonk_zps145cb4d4.jpg " My creative impulse is driven by a fascination with childhood paraphernalia: dolls, toys, fairy tales, stage sets, fun fairs, found objects mixed with whimsy. These personal recollections are complimented by the cultural heritage of Victoriana, vintage fashion, film iconography, pin-up imagery etc. We cannot escape the past and our sweet yesterdays, whether imagined or real, are my repository. Any search for particular meaning in my idiosyncratic work may not yield much. If one word were chosen to describe my paintings, it would be ‘edgy’. Superficially they may appear ‘cute’ but my intention is to unsettle, albeit subtly. As the creeping wasp on the fairy cake does." - Xue Wang  photo Eavesdropping_zpscc66389a.jpg  photo wombservice526F672C_zpsa98e2a28.jpg
