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…
Portraits de Lita Cabellut «Je veux forcer les gens à regarder les gens, ils sont des figures caractéristiques puissantes. Je travaille l’expressionnisme, mais j’ai développé mon propre style. C’est une sorte de techniques de collage, combinée à l’huile. C’est une fresque. C’est la force avec laquelle vous peignez, comment vous utilisez de la peinture sur la toile, le toucher. Tout ceci est une combinaison de philosophie et de physique.”
The Spanish Lita Cabellut was born on 1961 in Barcelona, where she grew up in a poor Gypsy-environment.
Her work is closely intertwined with the memories of the old area of Barcelona, El Raval, with closeness to the docks, La Bocquerai market, Las Ramblas and Sant Antonie market, replete with pickpockets, street performers and of course, prostitutes.
After 13 years of street and orphan life she got adopted. In this new period of her life she discovers the Prado museum. She become amorous with Goya, Velazquez, Ribera and Rembrandt. One of her preferred statements explaining her passion is: “I married very young, my first marriage was with the art”. I can endorse this is the case of Lita.
She got her first exhibition on the age of 17 at the Town Hall of Masnou, Barcelona. At 19 she decided to change her native country Spain, for new challenges in the Netherlands, where she studied between 1982-1984 at the Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam.
Nowadays, Lita Cabellut is considered as a painter with a unique pictorial language, using a contemporary variation on the fresco-technique and a immensely enjoyable, communicative and recognizable ‘Cabellut-palette’. Lita Cabellut’s ‘human-faced’ paintings are exposed all around the globe, in New York, Dubai, Miami, Singapore, Hong Kong, Barcelona, London, Paris, Venice, Monaco, Seoul and many more cities.
Technique mixte – Jessica Rimondi est née à Turin en 1987, a étudié à l’Academie Albertina di Belle Arti de Turin et vit / travaille à Berlin.
L’engagement visuelle est la force motrice de son travail, par la recherche de moyens d’expressions différents pour créer les visuels forts les plus appropriés. La forme, le geste, le matériel et le concept – c’est ainsi que son processus de création se développe dans des œuvres figuratives qui se caractérisent par la médiation cohérente des différents moyens d’expression : techniquement et stylistiquement.
Technique mixte – Jessica Rimondi born in Turin 1987, studied at the Accaemia Albertina di Belle Arti of Turin and now lives and works in Berlin. Curiosity for visual engagement is the driving force in her work, by researching different means of expression to find the most appropriate visuals according to needs and inclination. Form, gesture, material and concept – this is how her creative process develops into works that are characterised by the consistent mediation of different means of expression: technically and stylistically. Throughout the last year, particular emphasis has been given to the element of gesture. As she progressively developes a technique of “strata”, which allows her to create compositional narrative within the representational element, the performative factor of gesture progressively becomes the media and the poetic meaning through which her aesthetic develops.
