Beauty is the main reason and purpose for my art. I spare no obstacle in both challenging and expressing the power and mystery of beauty.
My favorite media are acrylics and watercolor. The subject matter are birds in their real or mythological interaction with the human universe. I strive to depict the dualistic nature of reality, conscious and subconscious states of the mind, and to create examples of modern mythology. My paintings explore a dream-conscious state in order to increase a depth of perception and to develop a poetic world view.Read More Featured Artist | Vlasta Smola
NY based artist since 2009, working primarily in oil and ink. Studied at the Art Students League, National Academy of NY and Grand Central Academy. As a faithful and respectful learner, then successor of legendary master’s vision, style and performance, loved very much traditional choice of medium and ground his own colors. And after colossal dedication to art, some times, 72 hours nonstop painting or drawing, unintentionally or maybe subconsciously created unique, unrepeatable style and technique in post divisionism and ink drawings, never observed before.
Below, are Atom’s own understanding and description of his art works in these particular two styles:Read More Featured Artist | Atom Hovhanesyan
A multidisciplinary artist with a main focus on sculpture and engraving of material as diverse as actual natural eggshells to hand- forged steel. I find the strength and fragility of these two mediums themselves reflect my personality as well as my subject matter.Read More Featured Artist | Cherie Lee
This work is a study of how nature and power rhyme. It is an exploration of candy-colored sensual puzzles printed on metallic paper on the back side of clear plexiglas. Viewers are drawn in closer to feel comforted yet disturbed, to wonder if it is science fiction or science illustration, mythology or an updated version of Titian’s master paintings. Tensions are created with hints of sensuality but paused at the detachment.Read More Featured Artist | Paul Pinzarrone

The painter Franck Sastre the color invades his mind and eyes when he picks up the palette and begins to mix his delusions of colors, to compose his new works that we present: La Dame des fleurs, Jean Michel Basquiat, Pas de folie, Broken black soul .
He continues to give a lot of personality to his way of painting trying to break the ways of expressing the drawing and the way of giving color. Searching within his creative instinct in painting that desire of any painter to create his own style.
A large painting exhibition called “1920s” has been presented to us in Stockholm and Madrid a month ago but with the originality that the painter Franck has shared his work with another painter Asun Glez doing both paintings. Some of his works will be exhibited at Art Basel Miami.Read More Featured Artist | Franck Sastre

I am an expressionist artist and my work is concerned not with objective reality but is metaphorical — telling a story through the symbolism of life. I strive to evoke reactions either positive or negative. Distortion, exaggeration, and fantasy are the filters through which I paint the modern world. My work is not conventional, academic, or the new modernism. I am creating a new avant-garde.
I believe in equality and I want my work to reflect that. The stories in my paintings are situations that everyone faces equally, I paint them from the female perspective because, unfortunately, women are still targeted unfairly so I put them front and center to, in my way, show that we are all equal.Read More Featured Artist | Ric Conn

My works are an interpretation of a voyage to self-discovery seen through the eyes of retained memories. Memories are the driving force that sculpt my paintings. When placed onto the canvas, the sequences of these memories intermingle to expose, at times, a sense of uniformity while, at other times, a juxtaposition of emotions, perceptions and a melded reality.Read More Featured Artist | J.
