In my artwork I am dealing with questions of identity, explore notions of age(ing) and the realization that we all share a deephumanness that is comprised of memories, emotions, and a collective (superficial) awareness of meanings.

In a practice that engages with images and public space in a militantly active way, he employes numerous methods and materials - including stickers, plastic bags, spray paints and even the human body itself - in an effort to enliven the banality and sterility of the modern city."  photo 1375706509_10962-LON-JJOG-12-08_02_zpsymna2pmb.jpg  photo Upstream-Jeroen-Jongeleen_zps6kq7slh8.jpg

Gottfried Helnwein

He has worked as a painter, draftsman, photographer, muralist, sculptor, installation and performance artist, using a wide variety of techniques and media. Helnwein studied at the University of Visual Art in Vienna (Akademie der Bildenden Künste, Wien). His early work consists mainly of hyper-realistic watercolors, depicting wounded and mistreated children, as well as performances – often with children – in public spaces.[1] Helnwein is concerned primarily with psychological and sociological anxiety, historical issues and political topics. As a result of this, his work is often considered provocative and controversial. Helnwein lives and works in Ireland and Los Angeles.  photo Gottfried Helnwein Loacutegi Cult x13_zpsx3vmqtol.jpg  photo 1_zpsws3avhga.jpg

I use delicate and emotive gesture, rich texture, and subdued, sepia tones to create telling, intimate objects that capture current psychological, environmental, and cultural feelings. The figures are contemplative and inward thinking, seeing a future outcome that is uncertain. The animals I use are either extinct or have become endangered due to human impact in this era of “great acceleration” since the Industrial Revolution. The concepts behind the work are about our contemporary environmental issues while the visual structure pursues a totemic feel. I am looking at visual material including Native American ceremonial masks and regalia, Byzantine and Renaissance devotional painting, secular portraits and altarpieces, and Egyptian antiquities. I am interested in how human advancements in technology, agriculture, and urbanization have imposed stress on natural ecosystems and the species that live within them. Through my sculptures I try to humanize these ideas and present them in a way that is accessible, interesting, and conversation provoking. I hope that the viewer comes away from my work thinking and asking questions about our role as humans on the earth and our relationship to other living beings. I hope to raise awareness of these urgent issues while also showing our humanity, ingenuity, and ability to be flexible and innovate as species." - Crystal Morey  photo crystal-morey-ceramic-sculpture-1605938935_zpso5375qky.jpg  photo 03_cmorey_ZealotsElixir_zpsuwdnvzo0.jpg  photo Untitled-1_zpsqxsj3u4f.jpg

I discovered computer graphics several years ago (around the mid 90's). After some experiments with 3D modeling I decided to work only with 2D painting because I consider it the best way to expand and concretize my ideas. To create my pieces I use mainly Corel Painter (Photoshop for some my old pieces)." - Corrado Vanelli  photo 12_i_by_narciusart-d60nfi0_zpspgbekvma.jpg  photo 397434_1357502917_large_zpslmaguoi4.jpg
