Zin Limit – Paintings (Born in Seoul, South Korea Zin Lim moved to San Francisco)
Lim works is predominantly cross-over (hybrid) figure in the medium of oil and charcoal.
Contemporary art – Abbey McCulloch (Australie) – born 1975, New Zealand, lives and works in Queensland.
Abbey McCulloch paints quirky sometimes unsettling, representations of female figures sketched onto a sparse background. Working with bold colour choices and often highly textured facial features, McCulloch creates visually engaging paintings, resulting in figures that entice us, yet stand guarded and restrained within our presence. Raw emotion is presented to us through the use of loose charcoal sketches that work up to the highly worked-up painted facial expressions. “I like the idea of exposing the processes and, in doing so, the final product is left with a more restless conclusion.” (source : hscvisualartresources)
Emanuele Dascanio Painter Artist. (Italia)
Emanuele Dascanio was born in Garbagnate Milanese in 1983.
After graduating from art school Lucio Fontana di Arese, in 2003 he enrolled at the Academy of Brera painting section: having learned to live in an environment decadent for the same painting, leave after six months.
Continuing, however, to have the desire and the need for artistic growth, in 2007 I began the study of Gianluca Corona, finding in him a good teacher and learning the technique of oil painting.
He has participated in various competitions and exhibitions nationally and internationally, ranking near the top.
Emanuele Dascanio is a perfectionist, he has devoted much time to the study of artistic techniques and the search for continuous improvement in his skills as a painter, before embarking on the exhibition schedule.
Géraldine Georges Illustrations, Illustrator from Belgium, Bruxelles.
After graduating from the Academy of Fine Arts in Brussels Géraldine worked as a graphic designer in various advertising agencies for 7 years. Towards the end of 2006, She started to work as a freelance illustrator. She did not felt like she was leaving behind the graphic design world but rather she was able to see & bring some graphic design elements into her illustrations. The two are inevitably linked for her. Her approach is pretty simple, she tries her best to transcribe emotions, find a perfect balance through the collages without falling into the trap of over-using Photoshop or other effects…
Beautiful work sculptures Nicola Hicks (UK) – born 1960.
Hicks studied at the Chelsea School of Art from 1978 to 1982 and at the Royal College of Art from 1982 to 1985.
Animals are her primary subject matter, usually sculpted in straw and plaster. This was unusual for an artist in the 80s, by which time abstract sculpture and installation art had become the norms in the art world. Hicks also works on huge sheets of brown paper on which she works up her dynamic charcoal drawings. Many of the sculptures have subsequently been cast in bronze, often with such subtlety that every fragile detail of plaster and straw is reproduced.
