Parr, Gina (UK)
Painter/ Photographer and former Set Designer for BBC, explores the line between abstraction and figurative recognition, between chance and control. Whilst her work is fundamentally abstract, the foundations are born out of figurative reference and autobiographical themes, presenting an atmospheric and moody empty stage influenced by her work as a Production Designer for television. Her work is represented in collections worldwide, including the permanent art collection at Keble College, Oxford.
Van De Stolpe, Margot (Netherlands)
Monumental artist, designer and ceramist, member of 'Tropism', the art movement that prefers to deviate from the predictable, she was educated at the Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam. She is particularly interested in patterns derived from nature. Interaction between one fractal structure and an other in the natural environment is the underlying starting-point for her work, and photography, photo collage and computer-graphics are the means.
Martino, Larisa (Turkmenistan - USA)
Larisa is primarily an easel painter. Her style is focusing on fantasy themes, illustrative ideas, and fashion sketches in acrylics, ink pen, oil pastels, ink on wet, color pencils, fabrics, faux finishes, and often a combination of the above for different effects. Many of her pieces are representations of women - the feminine forms of emotions, moods, and characters. Larisa is also accomplished as a muralist, decorative painter and faux finisher.
Casty, Jill (Bolivia - Mexico)
Abstraction in Three ~ cm78x102x12
American artist Jill Casty, now also living and working in Italy and Mexico, creates unique sculptures of bright, joyful fused glass and metal. The works are standing or wall-hanging. They present abstract expressions of her responses to the beauty that still endures in nature or impressions of beautiful aspects of the natural world. Flores de Primavera is wall-hanging, nine brilliant glass blossoms over a shimmering stainless steel “vase.”
Kala, Ana (Serbia)
I see painting as creative strive of the subconscious and its communication through art media. Trough Jungian psychoanalytic theory, my body of work can be read as a move from art practice as a form of expression to its communication on symbolical level. From simple organic forms, pieces are gradually developed into complex organic systems.

Hadwin, Lee (UK-Australia)
‘Sleep-drawing’ since the age of four it wasn’t until he was 14-15 years old that his nocturnal talents as an artist began to emerge. He recalls: That during his early teens the drawings became a lot more intricate and had more depth to them.
Lee draws or scribbles on walls, tables, clothes, discarded newspapers - with pens, crayons, paints and coal - anything he can get his hands on. After all these years he is prepared and has his sketch books and materials scattered around his apartment.

Einstein, Ula (USA)
Included in “100 hottest Artists to Watch in 2014″ by Michael Corbin
Exploring the humble and the sublime Ula Einstein is a New York City-based artist who is remarkably in tune with her process. I would say she does a better job at describing her work and inspirations than many artists I’ve interviewed to date.
