Figurative painter Cindy Press is inspired by fashion, 60s photography and popular culture. Her works are an exploration of sexuality and gender, rendered in a signature black and white realist style that merges her background in fashion with an exploration of emotion and identity.

Photographer Igor Vitomirov’s chosen medium allows him to capture moments of emotional interaction between humans and nature. In reflecting upon his images, Igor adds layers of digital processing on to his works, which act as impressions of the artist’s own feelings toward a given experience. Igor has a MA in Design, and has exhibited his works in Paris, Berlin, Lisbon, and across Scandinavia, including a show at the Malmo World Trade Center, Sweden. See more of Igor’s works here.
Buenos Aires native Gisela Gaffoglio incorporates her love of music during her plein air painting sessions, creating chromatic melodies in her vibrant abstract cityscapes. A fearless use of colour and distinct geometric style earned her special mention at the Bienal de Arte Contemporaeo Argentina in 2016, and exhibitions across Central and South America, as well as Madrid and New York City. Her works are held in private collections throughout Argentina, Panama and the US. See more of Gisela’s work here.
Italian artist Massimo Quadrelli approaches his painterly practice with a philosophical mindset, exploring sign and symbol through gestural mark-making.

Terming her work ‘minimalism-with-warmth’, Jessica Poundstone treats color as an experience in her hybrid artworks that blend techniques of painting, drawing and screen-printing.
