I was born in S. Jorge, and now live and work in the small medieval town of Porto de Mos, located in the centre of Portugal. I began my education at the Antonio Arroio school for the decorative arts, and finished it attending an art course (1982/85) at the National Society of Fine Arts. In the past, my paintings were of, what I like to call, figurative expressionist nature. As time passed, the figurative elements began to dilute. Now, and looking forward, I focus mostly on pure expressionism, lightly touching upon abstraction - expressionist abstraction, where lines and unexpected shapes, spots and different tones of gray, dominate the surface of the canvas at their leisure. «... Here are the shapes. Most are not fixed on just one space; their presence is temporary, as they disperse, as soon as they can, to mix with other shapes and conquer other spaces, merging, thus becoming important. Other shapes are fixed, they stay faithful, delicate, and sustain firmly the idea of a set, a piece that is whole, finished. »(Journal of the artist).

I am an artist living in Switzerland sharing my time between Engelberg, Zurich, and the world. my artwork is based on a personal approach mainly inspired by Dasein concept. - I use some Japanese technique of calligraphy for my painting and drawing - Also involved in digital media, video art, 3D printing, and virtual world, I like to define myself as a Cross Media Picture Maker. Contemporary art has to use all mirrors, techniques, and spread cultural ideas through the big network around the earth. There is no inferior or depreciated way to perform art, web, TV, digital facility, social network or simple paper, all are pencils and medium of the century.

Valentyna Protsak started painting more than 20 years ago. She held her first very successful opening in 2007. She sold over 50 paintings since then, most of them in Switzerland, but there are also paintings located in Southern France, Russia and Spain. Valentyna Protsak was born on June 9th in 1988 in Kiev, Ukraine. In July 2006 she graduated in Fine Arts from The High School of Arts by T.G. Shevchenko. In the years 2007 and 2008 she took artistic classes at the College of Arts in Zurich. In the years 2011-2014 Valentyna studied Design and Arts at the High School of Arts in Luzern. „In my world of arts it‘s important to see the interplay of colors and to find the form which matches my reality“ VP With expressive movements and fast brushstrokes the young artists manages to put people and subjects from an outsiders view into the picture. The unadorned elegance of the today’s scenes and situations of Monaco are visualized in the works by means of a gentle yet intensive expressionism. Bright, glowing colors and powerful brush strokes that reflect and trigger atmosphere and emotion are typical for the oil paintings by young artist with Russian-Ukrainian roots: Valentyna Protsak.
Je suis autodidacte. J'ai commencé à dessiner il y a plus de 20 ans pour mon plaisir. J’ai une préférence pour les portraits au crayon et à l’encre de Chine. J’utilise l’acrylique, l’aérographe et les logiciels pour réaliser des créations numériques abstraites.
Bonjour et bienvenue ! Tout mes dessins sont réalisés au feutre fin à l'encre de chine et au colorex et mes impressions sont fidèles aux originaux. Aucune retouche numérique n'est effectuée. Bonne visite !
Née à Clermont Ferrand ( France) , Artiste peintre ,Corinne DUBOSQUE, est tout d‘abord tatoueur, elle dessine et tatoue depuis plus de 20 ans, certains de ses dessins étaient travaillés sur toile ou sur papier, comme des sujets-objets à part entière, avant d’être tatoués, ou non. Depuis deux ans, elle a découvert comme par nécessité, le besoin de travailler sur le terrain sensible de l‘abstraction…D’ailleurs cette technique et ce terrain sensible lui vont bien , et face au franc succès rencontré par ces travaux, elle continue cette recherche de la justesse entre les formes, les couleurs et les éléments sensibles qui surgissent de ces assemblages. Elle est influencée par le travail de Zao Wou Ki ,Mathieu, Pollock ... Pour ce qui reste à dire, il est préférable de regarder les toiles…
Hugo Pondz, is a regular visitor to New York in his dreams and is interested in both the urban landscape of the city and places empty and forgotten,. The caracters are waiting or dreaming and maybe both . It seems there is a war between shadows and light. The aim is straightforward: to create paintings that provide a strong sense of places in which the time stands still waiting,.... In terms of important influences, he admires the work of the American artist Edward Hopper and Giorgio de Chirico Stephen Jared Los Angeles
I have been painting for over 4 decades. I paint feelings, emotions, and the moods of my life-journey in the attempt to escape the harsh realities of this world. I would like my art to touch other people minds making them reflects about their own surrounding. Art should evoke emotions -negative or positive- to anyone who views it. I would love to have the opportunity to allow people all over the globe to see my art and share, maybe, their impression and opinion about my work.
"La peinture est un jeu entre regardeurs et regardés, un clin d'oeil à la vie, peuplée de portraits comme autant de visions qui interrogent le monde"
