Martine Johanna

Martine Johanna's work is largely autobiographical. Using color, form, and composition as language, she investigates the role of women within a patriarchal culture, beauty, adolescence, oppression, inner worlds and dualism are themes recurring in her wordless communication with both figurative and abstract elements. 

Kris Knight

Kris Knight is a Canadian artist whose paintings puncture the membrane between dream and reality, historical and contemporary, light and dark. Within their apparent ambiguity, Knight’s sensitive character based paintings and portraits of queer men are an evocative combination of romanticism and nostalgia, exploring notions of performance in both an everyday and theatrical dimension.

Stephanie K. Clark

Utah-based artist Stephanie K. Clark considers herself a painter, but the works she creates are not made with a traditional painterly medium. Using embroidery techniques and strands of floss in a spectrum of colors, Clark paints little houses, landscapes, and other scenes that look as if they exist in the natural world and are being lit by the moon or sun.

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. 

Frank Gonzales

My work is about taking reference from various sources including books, the net and photos to comprise and create my own imagery. By creating my paintings through reference or made up elements, there becomes a play between artificiality and realism.

Sho Tsunoda

‘Being an international individual has helped me to think globally and made me aware of how to make paintings that will potentially communicate with many people of the world regardless of their cultural background. While I embrace our personal uniqueness, I seek collective humanity in all we share’. -Sho Tsunoda

Kelly is big on the upcycling of materials and is forever collecting discarded wood scraps, root ends and timber bits.

GIOVANNI DE BENEDETTO

PREMATURE is the mixed media art project by the multimedia artist Giovanni De Benedetto. The pictures do not mean to represent subjects pre-defined by the artist but rather, he wants them to be conceived as visual inputs for the observers so they can find their own personal meaning inside of the images. 

Lonac

His signature huge, eye-catching pieces – created with spray cans and brushes – are usually influenced by skateboard culture, comics, graffiti, movies, music, but also current social issues.
