Runyu Xia

“Exploring the internal world is my motivation for making art. The internal world is extremely varied and intriguing. It is a reflection of the external world, but it is not visible or literal. There are multitudinous spaces in my internal world. They are waiting for me to dig into them.”

Envy - Digital media 30 x 41 cm

Born in Shanghai, China, Runyu Xia currently lives and works in New York. He received his BE in Film and TV Technology (Animation Concentration) from Shanghai University, Shanghai in 2013, and his MFA in Computer Art from School of Visual Arts, New York City, 2015.

Simon Jugovic Fink

“Despite the dominance of new media, I remain faithful to the interpretation of content through the basic elements of visual composition, and traditional painting techniques. However, my methods and principles of displaying images are rooted in the way we view the world today: through our screens.”

Simon Jugovic Fink was born in 1977 and today lives in London, UK. He holds Master’s and Bachelor’s of Fine Arts Degrees from the Academy for Fine Arts and Design Ljubljana, Slovenia.

Capt. Stjepko Mamic

“I create art for the people, not for the robots. In my artworks you can see my positive energy and feelings applied to canvas and that is why people likes my paintings.”

Long Net 2 - Mixed media with paint for glass and ceramics on linen canvas 200 x 110 cm

The internationally renowned artist Capt. Stjepko Mamic has attracted the attention of the international circle of collectors and art critics, who are drawn by his colorful, marine mystical style and charismatic persona. Always seeking for the new knowledge, he has perfected the techniques of contemporary painting at the Academia du Port-Royal, Paris, France and at the Academy D'Arte, Florence, Italy. These are some of the reasons why Stjepko's art is so well accepted in the world and he has become a member of many international art associations, such as Fondacion Taylor, Paris, France; Société des Artistes Indépendants, Paris, France; Accademia Culturale Europea, Rome, Italy; and others. He has exhibited extensively solo and with groups of authors in Croatia and worldwide. The source of Stjepko's art lies in the sea. He draws strength and inspiration from the sea depths and width of open sea where he spent most of his life. Firmly connected with the sea and nature he manages to pour the “Sea” on canvas and create unique paintings. In recent works, Stjepko explores new materials and artistic ideas, often using paint for glass and ceramics in combinations with acrylics, pigments and golden or silver leaves to create his stunning artworks. Many art critics have written reviews about Stjepko's artworks which can be found in numerous art books, catalogs, magazines and online publications. His works are in holding of numerous galleries, museums and private collections worldwide and the artist has received international awards. From the beginning, like any other strong individual, who lives his own vision, Stjepko has made his own path through the world of art. He follows an  "ecological vision" of art in contemporary life and with his paintings he sends a message "Please take more care of our blue planet". Capt. Stjepko now beckons a wider public to take part in that vision. Join me, he says, because Art is Life.

Andrew Etheridge

“Throughout history, the human has tried to explore his skin in order to understand, cope, and advance his existence. The focus of my work re-imagines the body as a new creative hyper-surrealistic form by morphing, rearranging, confining, amputating, and displaying its parts for the viewer to examine.”

Configurations of the Specimen I (1 of 8) - Silicone and acrylic 4 x 4 x 4 in.

Andrew Etheridge currently lives and works in Durham, NC. He started his artistic career while studying toward a Bachelor's in Arts from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington. In 2011 Andrew received his Masters in Fine Art from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. While there he explored the body as a source of inspiration for artistic expression. This interest in the human form and condition led him to a career in Anaplastology. Today he constructs realistic custom silicone prosthesis for patients affected by various types of trauma or congenital defects.

Primary Specimen II - Silicone and acrylic 3 x 2 x 2 in.
Primary Specimen I - Silicone and acrylic 13 x 4 x 3 in.
Epithesis II - Silicone, acrylic, thermoplastic foam 3 x 4 x 12 in.
Epithesis I - Silicone, acrylic, carbon fiber, steel 16 x 6 x 6 in.

"The driving force behind each piece is to deconstruct human anatomy and meticulously reconstruct it into a kind of “self” examination and exploration. The intent of the work is to question our physical self and how this relates to our humanity. Overall the work creates a particularly uncomfortable experience where playful repulsion set in a sterile environment causes the viewer to become increasingly more aware of his or her own body."

“My work expresses my experiences and the things that came through my life, both negative and positive.”

Watchfulness - Acrylic on canvas 110 x 80 cm

Thai contemporary artist, Suwijak Kaewmaliwong lives and works in Lamphun. His unique canvases masterfully blend the figurative and the abstract. Stretched and bent, strange fleshy parts become words in a dynamic vocabulary, like a new body language telling of the artist’s inner psyche. Laid bare,  that which has been lived or imagined, bursting into an open-ended narrative which creates a passionate space for the viewer to behold.

“I strive to create a personal iconography drawn from life experiences, dreams and inchoate emotions. To achieve this, I use simplified forms and bold color to heighten the emotional context of the paintings. Painting in both oil and acrylic, I hope to establish a common ground with the viewer.”

Still Life with Citrus - Oil on canvas 36 x 36 in.

"I studied painting and figurative drawing in New York City, at The Art Students League and at Spring Studio in Soho. I also participated in advanced painting workshops in New York City, at The National Academy Museum School of Fine Arts and at The School of Visual Arts. In 2016, I joined Atlantic Gallery in New York City, located in the Chelsea art district. In October 2017, I completed a one-man show of recent paintings. I have exhibited in numerous other galleries, both in New York and Massachusetts. My work is held in private collections throughout the US. Prior to establishing my career as an artist, I engaged in the practice of Law and held the position of Deputy Solicitor General of The State of NY."
