<-- was a renowned Polish painter, photographer, and sculptor who is best known as a fantasy artist. Beksinski executed his paintings and drawings either in what he called a 'Baroque' or a 'Gothic' manner. The first style is dominated by representation, with the best-known examples coming from his 'fantastic realism' period when he painted disturbing images of a surrealistic, post-apocalyptic environment. The second style is more abstract, being dominated by form, and is typified by Beksinski's later paintings. Beksinski was murdered
in 2005. (via Wikipedia

at Galleria Continua
in Italy. 'Liu Jianhuaâ€™s work is deeply rooted in Chinese culture and in the dynamics of a rapidly changing nation, where there is a need to find an artistic idiom capable of expressing and formalizing the complex phase of economic and social transformation that China is currently undergoing. At the same time, a central concern remains the desire to develop further by engaging with a broader international context. Liu Jianhua was born in Jiâ€™an, in the Chinese province of Jianxi, in 1962. He lives and works in Shanghai.'
