In her sculptures and installations Veronica Brovall deals with existential questions of human life as well as a wide range of different kinds of fear. She constructs monumental sculptures that on the one hand are very clear with regard to the form, and impressive because of the size. On the other hand, they look in some way ambivalent as they often link seemingly familiar objects in a very strange way.
” I am a visual artist using traditional media and generative computer code. Beauty, contradictions, the illusion of control in a world much governed by randomness and the elusive nature of emotions are recurring ideas in my work.” – Sergio Albiac
Jordy van den Nieuwendijk (1985) studied Illustration at the Graphic Lyceum in Rotterdam and studied Graphic Design at the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague. His graphical language consists mostly of bold, emblematic and simple aesthetics in which he fools around with reductive values and white space every once in a while. He currently works on freelance, collaborative & autonomous projects from his studio in The Hague, The Netherlands.

Born in Madrid, 1977, David Agenjo is a self-taught artist living and working in London. After a brief career as a graphic designer, he now devotes himself entirely to painting. He has been exhibited in New York, London, Dublin and Madrid. His primary focus is on the human body, communicating a personal engagement through colour and texture allowing us to reconnect with the architecture of living beings. He develops each new painting on top of his previously used palette, fusing the given abstract random colours and textures with new layers of figurative depiction to create a new organic composition. This interlinks the whole body of his work, each painting affecting the next in a natural reproductive-like process.
Roland Corbin was born in Edinburgh and is now based in London. He graduated with a 1st class Honours from Edinburgh College of Art in 2000, with further study at the New York Academy of Art. He draws his artistic inspiration from the natural world, finding beauty and symmetry in the animal and plant kingdom. Using aspects of symbolism, surrealism and abstract expressionism, his work reflects the rich and ritualistic cultures of the East and the Pacific islands; Geisha make frequent appearances, juxtaposed with patterned birds, flowers and tropical underwater seascapes. By decontextualizing the natural world, Roland narrows the viewer’s focus, creating a new appreciation for the rich colours and shapes of his subject. Influenced by the detail of medical and botanical illustration, his recent work is representational; oversized animals are often painted in isolation or juxtaposed with unrelated aquatic creatures.
I have seen Conrad Jon Godly‘s work before but I’ve never paid attention. I should be slapped. Haha. I have to say these are looking pretty incredible.
Japanese artist Fujiko Nakaya has gained much attention and international recognition for her pioneering sculptures made from artificial fog. Nakaya’s environmental atmospheres explore the interface between art and technology and have paved the way for a unique and dramatic relationship between the two, within the context of contemporary art.
