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.

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.

What touches me deeply nowadays is the increasing disconnection that people experience between and within themselves.
The development of technology, which is meant to increase communication, is paradoxically limiting the situations that favor genuine contact and is creating a very fast paced reality.

Sheryl Luxenburg is a Canadian hyperrealist painter based in Ottawa who uses watercolour on paper and acrylic on linen with airbrush and regular brush to capture ultra realistic subject matter. The flattened depiction of space revealed in her paintings is so hard to distinguish from reality, especially when viewed online, that many scroll over her hand painted work thinking they are photographs. Although Luxenburg’s technical skills are impeccable, it is most important to her that the viewer identifies with her subject matter and finds the soul in her artwork.
