Catherine Denvir

Catherine Denvir enjoys exploring what she describes as a comparatively new medium. Her work starts and concludes in a traditional manner, drawings on paper to oil on canvas, but via an extensive, immersive, and meandering path of digital exploration. Catherine’s work has also been featured in 3×3 magazine, and the Taiwanese publication The Age of European Drawing. See more artworks by Catherine Denvir

Anna Matykiewicz

Anna Matykiewicz is an artist from Poland, currently living and working in Ireland. She doesn’t limit herself to one technique or set of materials when creating her bold, graphic portraits. Anna likes to mix watercolors, acrylic, oil, and ink to create the preferred outcome. She loves the combination of smooth colorful portraits with the delicate lines that frame and accent the portrait. See more artworks by Anna Matykiewicz

Max Yaskin

Max Yaskin is an abstract artist that enjoys experimentation and trying different techniques. Everything he sees inspires him, be it nature, people, movies, traveling. His creativity paves his self-expression, showing his worldview. As an artist, Max prefers abstract art, because it gives him ample opportunities to experiment with color, imagination, and complete freedom of expression. See more artworks by Max Yaskin.

Rashna Hackett

Rashna Hackett paints intuitively without any plan for what the finished piece will be, instead allowing instinct to guide her creative process. Acting and reacting to the stroke of color, her mood, interest, and love of color are ever present in the finished piece. Her art is a representation of her perception of life: dynamic, complex, and yet simple. See more artworks by Rashna Hackett.

Matthew Farrar

Matthew Farrar’s work is an insight into how the eyes feed his mind, the deconstruction of structure into patterns and geometric form. A world of aesthetic values is highlighted by shape and shadow, liquid and color. His abstractions show a clear distinction from photojournalism in the artistic approach to his composition. See more artworks by Matthew Farrar.
