Hernan Bas

Born in 1978 in Miami, Florida, Hernan Bas creates works born of literary intrigue and tinged with nihilistic romanticism and old world imagery. Influenced by the Aesthetic and Decadent writers of the 19th century, in particular Oscar Wilde and Joris-Karl Huysman, Bas’s works weave together stories of adolescent adventures and the paranormal with classical poetry, religious stories, mythology and literature. 

Daniel Bilmes

Daniel Bilmes is a contemporary painter, working in Los Angeles. His approach is characterized by deep personal exploration, combining realism with elements of symbolism and abstraction. Through tactile textures and delicate expressions, his paintings weave together the magical and mundane. His work is at once hopeful and brooding. Realistic and symbolic. Somewhere between the vitality of the Russian circus and the gravitas of a Churchill speech. 

Secundino Hernández

Secundino Hernández's diverse and energetic painting practice resists easy characterisation. His work features intricately structured compositions that mix strong linear elements and rich bursts of colour. Some canvases feature abstracted, atomised forms, while others have more densely overlaid imagery in which it is possible to discern figurative elements.

Ryan Sullivan

Ryan Sullivan (b.1983, New York) graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design, Providence (RI) in 2005. Built up in multiple layers, Sullivan’s large-scale paintings reflect his dynamic and constantly-evolving mode of abstraction, with each painting standing as a physical record of its own creation – both embodying and describing material flows and physical processes. Distinctive and unrepeatable, Sullivan’s works have been praised for their assertion of painting's enduring critical importance and potential.

Malgosia Jankowska

Painter Malgosia Jankowska was born in 1978 in Sochaczew, Poland and studied painting in Warsaw and Berlin. With fine brush strokes, she sets people and nature in opposition to each other. She masterfully creates pictures of stunning depth and spaciousness by alternating translucent and pastose colors. Mysteriously, white light bursts through the tree trunks of some paintings like a white haze. The filigree lines, together with the softened tones – sometimes restricted to a single color on a white background, hearken back to the engravings of old fairytale books.

Jana Brike

Jana Brike was born in year 1980 in Riga, Latvia. She has studied academical painting in the Art Academy of Latvia and received M.A. degree in year 2005. Her work has been exhibited internationally in professional venues since 1996 while she was still a young teenager, and since then she has had 13 solo exhibitions and nearly 100 other projects and group exhibitions all over the world.
