Athos Zacharias

I am involved in computer manipulations of Pop images assembled into collages and painted on canvas. My images are culled from popular media – magazines most commonly – and my paintings have a surreal tone. Still, my subject matter remains rooted in the spatial traditions of modern, abstract painting. Indeed, throughout my career I have had a preoccupation with spatial ambiguity. I would say that this idea – the dynamics of uncertain perception, of positive and negative forms within a restricted depth of space – links my work over the past 40 years.

Bob Allen

Having had no formal training or artistic background, my introduction to the world of sculpture was by accident, rather than design. Whilst recovering from major surgery I began chopping wood to regain strength and develop stamina. I was soon carving unique wooden pieces to order - and quickly realised that creating sculptural forms was the most satisfying, wonderful work I had ever done.

Nathan Beatty

“The painter of the future will be a colorist the like of which has never been seen.” Vincent Van Gogh 1889 These words were written in a letter to Theo van Gogh and in my mind they were written to me and for me, my hopes and dreams and passions are to combine colors and textures and light in a way that has not yet been explored, to create the movement and energy that is within us and without us at all times...

Helidon Haliti

The artist is similar to the river that cannot find rest but continues to flow in search of the sea …; but differently from the river that streams from the height towards the down, the artist overflows towards the peaks; he doesn’t descend, but climbs toward the height of the human spirit, heart and mind, extending himself all over the cosmos and all over the human micro cosmos. The artist accepts neither limits, nor rest; he occupies always new lands …; he is always in movement and searching …

Lou Ros

"I live and work in Paris. I'm born in 1984. I started to paint when I was a graffiti artist. The relationship between the fixed image and movement really interests me. To captivate the eye by transforming the clear into a blur and the fixed into a movement is an active ingredient in my research. I paint in a very instinctive way. Through the colours, brush strokes, composition, background and rhythm of the painting, I attempt to create works which truly represent bodies in movement without distortion.
