Peter de Boer
Peter de Boer is primarily a painter, working with egg tempera that he produces himself.

Maja Dlugolecki is a self-taught abstract painter from Portland, Oregon. With a background in visual design, her work draws from experiences and impressions in her own life through an abstract lense. Maja’s intuitive paintings features ample white space in between layers of texture, creating movement through bold pigments. See more of Maja’s work here.
Bollee Patino is a contemporary artist with a fast-paced practice between hastily sketched motifs and a cacophonous flurry representation of abstract expressionism, street art and pop art saturated with bright, eye-popping color. His artwork contains a multi-layered chaotic metaphor of his personal life, social views while flirting with identity subjects of ego and a sense of self. See more of Bollee’s work here.
Through a minimalistic approach to painting Rebekah Andrade‘s transitioning layers, ambiguous lines, contrasting palette, capture, and intrigue you. She gathers much of her inspiration through the environments she inhabits while traveling and living abroad. See more of Rebekah’s work here.

Zlatka Paneva is a multidisciplinary artist who creates images that lay somewhere in between reality and surrealism. Her humorous and innovative approach creates uniqueness in composition, execution and meaning with a definitive storytelling manner in them. See more of Zlatka’s work here.
Andrew Millar uses a combination of instant film, gold & silver leaf and paint to create delicately detailed collage pieces that capture a haunting mix of reality and fantasy. Andrew has had solo exhibitions in Paris, Berlin, Barcelona and New York. See more of Andrew’s work here.
