He first began exhibiting in 1979 and his works deal primarily with ways of representing urban topographies and narratives. He is known for panoramic layered city vistas and figurative groupings and has a long held preoccupation for the way human beings negotiate territories. Within his paintings, drawings and prints we see influences of contemporary global culture and recent history that range from science fiction and film through to urban social debates. His extensive travels in Asia and living in cities such as New York, London and Venice have deeply influenced his practice. Cattapan’s work has been accorded many accolades.  photo Dominik-Mersch-Gallery-Jon-Cattapan-Atonal-Group-Cannareggio-1-2014-monotypes_zpsylr2skdo.jpg  photo Dominik-Mersch-Gallery-Jon-Cattapan-Atonal-Group-Cannareggio-4-2014-monotypes_zpsvfkuzh6e.jpg

On a recent skiing trip Charlie Clift, a London based portrait photographer was struck by the effect the weather has on our faces. Panda eyes, red noses, wide grins and sun-kissed cheeks - Charlie took his camera to the slopes to photograph the faces of winter sports enthusiasts as they arrived down from the slopes for their lunch break. The result is a collection of fascinating faces all exposed to the same weather conditions - harsh alpine wind, blazing sunshine and icy snowflakes. If there is one piece of advice to give it is: always wear sunscreen. More photos on Charlie’s website here.  photo 09_SkiingFaces_zpskiy21cdz.jpg  photo 02_SkiingFaces_zps9zkorppd.jpg

He works with self-reference painting. Metaphorically connecting images of his own body, feelings and banal situations, he aims at pointing out conditions inconceivable to be portrayed but through artifices and distortions of reality. As for this, his art pieces are the result of a modus operandi that makes part of the photographic universe and results in a kind of parallel reality, materialized in the universe of painting. In which, he creates contours of a disturbing reality.  photo GZqfXp7HFeSWCnCwFS84hkkHg6yYxFgt2MYf43LmcpngQXCZNt5cw419E5KBTnPN4_zpsebe3gvbg.jpg  photo NYHKzrAjxeL8Ks2HDGyt48TTqWetf1cGCN1K6yTwRKAjqcXczbtS31SWMHMswEsh7_zpsdjuwmkdp.jpg

Mike Dargas

 photo tumblr_nlffud0kPT1qjg75jo4_540_zps4z1wmfpx.jpg  photo mike_dargas_04_zpsrktiijww.jpg Mike Dargas was born 1983 in Cologne, Germany. Inspiried by Dali, Caravaggio and HR Giga Mike begins to focus on surrealism and realism. His works show the picture of people, painted realistically in oil on canvas. The precise technique gives, like a photography, a snapshot of the moment. The artist studies his motifs with such intensity, that each portrait pictures a profile of increasing intimate closeness. The perfection of his technique seems to search for the perfect image, like he was searching for the soul within each single one. With his works Mike Dargas challenges us to take a deeper look, to understand the nature of human being and to question our own emotional perception. The artist lives and works in Cologne, Germany.  photo tumblr_nlffud0kPT1qjg75jo3_540_zps2tls3aim.jpg  photo tumblr_nlffud0kPT1qjg75jo2_540_zpsqpsdvobi.jpg  photo tumblr_nkda42KBPb1qa4iv8o2_1280_zpse07avcgp.jpg

The setup is very simple: Various shades of acrylic paint are dripped onto a metallic rod, which is connected to a drill. When switched on, the paint starts to move away from the rod, creating these amazing looking structures. The motion of the paint happens in a blink of an eye, the images you see are taken only millisecond after the drill was turned on.  photo eb6a3db3b8754880c73f7c928068bc40_zpsbq4eicew.jpg  photo 499cec15a58a852630d6074b0c8f4be8_zps1kbtdaaq.jpg  photo a36e3801bd1b076d9714628e515c6b87_zpshanbe4sm.jpg
