Eleni Pratsi has a passion for abstract paintings since she discovered Bernard Frize’s work which is still her greatest influence as well as reference for her work. Pratsi’s work focuses on composition systems and colour. One often encounters circular forms that constantly play on colourful structures. See more artworks by Eleni Pratsi.
Magnus Gjoen questions the notions of beauty by juxtaposing a range of styles and media, incorporating a street and pop aesthetic with a fine art approach. His pieces draw on history and allusion, using existing artworks or fragments from the past to create his own, contemporary aesthetic. See more artworks by Magnus Gjoen.
“Oscar Nin is an artist without academic career. His only certainties are his doubts and his big capital, his authenticity. He doesn’t emulate anybody, and achieves what he achieves by himself. Oscar show us an art painfully honest, intuitive, intelligent, and essential.” – Juan Elorduy, Curator. See more artworks by Oscar Nin.
Henri Boissiere was reading haiku when creating his Visual Art Series. He found haikus, little Japanese poems, powerful in their simplicity which pushed him to create visual art haikus. The purpose of this series was to create a haiku of colours to bring joy to his home. He hopes the chromatic world will bring us some kind of « satori ». See more artworks by Henri Boissiere.
Kasia Derwinska communicates with the world through photography. Her work is an attempt to connect substantiality of the world that surrounds us with elusiveness of feelings and thoughts. For that reason, she describes her creations as building a bridge between the visible and the invisible. See more artworks by Kasia Derwinska.
