Pablo Guillamon

"My painting transmits the poetry of everyday life through shapes and colors."

PASADO-PERDIDO 4 - Digital media 90 x 60 cm

Spanish artist Pablo Guillamon has exhibited in various establishments and cities including Lorca, Granada, Madrid, Murcia, Paris, Miami, Huesca, Barcelona, Zurich, etc.

In 2021 Pablo Guillamon was a semi-finalist at the ARTBOX.PROJECT World 1.0. Zurich, Switzerland and in 2019, a finalist in the National Painting Prize "Art without Barriers", Albacete, Spain.

For Pablo, his works are an expression of his deepest feelings on everyday life. In his realistic work, he tries to find the poetry of shapes and colors that configure our real world. In his abstract works, the strokes of light and color move the observer to a warm and cold place at the same time. Hot in the feelings, cold in the observation.

In his own words: "An image is the past of everything that has been during the time elapsed in its composition. Colors create different and harmonious visions that can not always be seen.

These works represent this eternal and continuous contradiction."

Maria Stella Polce

“There are painters who transform the sun into a yellow spot, but there are others who, with their art and intelligence, transform a yellow spot into the sun." - P. Picasso
"I transform a fractal (computer generated), into a horse or a nude or a landscape or an abstract."

Omaggio floreale - Digital art, Frattalismo 50 x 50 cm

Italian artist, Maria Stella Polce is a Professor at the M.P.I. (Ministry of Education). Originally from Abruzzo, she traveled throughout Italy before moving permanently to Francavilla al Mare, where she currently resides. 

A versatile artist, from an early age, Maria Stella showed a passion for art by painting mainly landscapes and animals with a realistic approach. From the age of 20 onwards, she began to paint with oil colors on canvas (self-taught), had her first solo shows as well as participations in collective exhibitions, obtaining acclaim and prizes. 

After a long period of research and artistic experimentation with various techniques and materials (including oil pastels, acrylic colors, watercolors, tempera, glass painting, mixed techniques, etc.), Polce discovered fractals. From 2000 onwards, her way of making art radically changed, to "Fractalism." 

Polce draws fractals with her virtual brush, guided by the mouse, bringing out various themes including horses, female figures, landscapes and more, with a unique technique of painting the interior and producing an original, surprising effect. 

Later, Polce also experimented with new types of modifications to fractals, occasionally moving away from the figurative. All her digital works are born from fractals and their transformations (including fragmentation, overlapping, etc.). 

With this new genre of digital art, she has received notable awards and feature in various art catalogs, including, Mondadori and L'Elite 2019, Artisti 20, Atlante dell'Arte Contemporanea De Agostini 2021. Since 2015, Maria Stella Polce has continued to actively exhibit her work in Italy and abroad.

Ulla Strandberg

Passionate Photographer, Ulla Strandberg uses her I-phone captures to create her digital collages. Inspired by nature, colorful moments, fun situations and unexpected surprises, her works are often stories full of symbolism.

Raven - Digital media

Swedish artist, Ulla Strandberg has explored a wide range of materials in her long creative life. She began as a jewelry designer and then found clay. After a Master's Degree, she showed her ceramic works mainly in Sweden and Denmark. Ulla then found more meaning in promoting other artists' work and for several years now, she is a well-known gallery owner and art curator working for many national and international shows and art fairs. Ulla often lectures in art and design. In 2014, she started KonstMappen, a digital display and intermediation for Swedish artist members. She is very interested in showing art worldwide. 

At the same time, Ulla began working with digital collage, a process she really enjoys and discovering new ways of expression. 

"I find the creative process very exciting. The world wide web opens up new opportunities for artists indeed. My digital art can be shown on screens, so it is not always necessary to travel. My art is for sale as prints and can be shipped worldwide."

Bobby Kim Ling Chen

"What is nonconventional in yesteryears may be today's contemporary and tomorrow's glory."

Silence Gallery - Digital media 1080 x 1920 pixels

Bobby is an “end-to-end” digital artist who does all the work himself with specialised skills in image/video processing, using diversified methods and multiple software to derive his creatives.  

Bobby likes colorful stuff. Although some of his works may carry similar themes, he believes “while imagination has no border, art has no limit,” and that includes injecting of digital science into the presentation process of his creatives.

Bobby believes that most artworks existed due to the intention of the artist to “communicate” with others. In recent years, the rapid advancements in digital science may have added more venues, which may otherwise be lacking in traditional arts. These advanced techniques could include using Augmented Reality (AR), audio and video, cinemagraph, website, metaverse, etc., This application of digital science on traditional arts created a hybrid known as “Digital Arts”, which is understood by many as “artistic work or practice that uses digital technology as part of the creative or presentation process”.

Richard Chalquest

"I have been doing digital art for over ten years. I use Painter software with a few attachments to produce art pieces. I primarily create abstract art but do vary the format according to my interests such as a love for flowers. I have developed more than 200 digital art pieces."

Planets - Digital media 36 x 36 in.

"My life’s work has always been in research. I spent many years as a very serious photographer and after retirement transferred to digital art. When I started working with digital art, it was a very new field and I had to learn from tutorials for photography and adapt the techniques to art pieces. Later, specific software was developed which has made my work much simpler and has extended the horizon of potential art pieces."

Richard Chalquest is an American artist living and creating in San Diego.

Dr. Natalia Jezova

Dr Natalia Jezova communicates through a wide variety of media, including photography, film and installation. Her art, which has been exhibited internationally, addresses cultural memory, identity and gender issues.


Colour Studies - Series, fig 3(pink) - Mixed media 46.5x57 cm

Dr Natalia Jezova is an award-wining, multidisciplinary artist. She achieved her Professional Doctorate in Fine Art at the University of East London in 2021.

Natalia's work is never quite what it first appears to be. Her images depict meticulously controlled compositions characterised by a classical aesthetic, tinged with poetic undertones of timeless desire and romance. Natalia's work creates immersive narrative scenarios that blur the lines between imagination, reality and memory.

Natalia is sight impaired and she sees everything with a double vision effect. This was one of the reasons why she started to use the superimposition technique (in which two images are simultaneously visible over each other) in her art practice. The layering of images on top of each other creates a new meaning and makes an impression on an almost subliminal level.

Natalia particularly admires Old Master paintings. She is fascinated by their unsurpassed technical qualities, their mysterious representation of dramatic light and their masterful use of composition. However, she appreciates not only their technical skill but also their incredible ability to convey to a viewer the subtext of the picture hidden behind the symbolic meanings of colours and details. After all, many Renaissance masterpieces, with their unique placement of objects and use of distinctive colour palettes, are coded ‘books’ filled with secrets and hints.

You just need to know the ciphers for these codes to understand what their author wanted to convey. She mixes classical and modern aspects and her artworks are multi-layered, containing their own little secrets that viewers are invited to discover. As Natalia says: “What could be more enchanting than a mystery? I suppose, only the love for the mystery and the quest which one embarks on in trying to solve it.”

"In my work, I try to introduce a transformative reality already grafted with elements of the imagination. I think of my works as narrative quotes, movie frames or reflective fragments of an essay on our fragmentary, fluid, and transitional world, more like metaphors for ways of seeing."

Untitled - Digital photo collage 80 x 120 cm

Yiannis Galanakis studied at the Physics Department of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. Since 2012 he has been dealing with digital processing and composition of his photographs. He has presented his work in group and individual art exhibitions as well as in international competitions or festivals.

 

 “Human,

when no one sees him

he goes out and walks

outside of human.”

- Homero Aridjis

 

"In my work, I try to introduce a transformative reality already grafted with elements of the imagination. This reality reflects upon the world, as well as itself, through visual elements as provided by digital image processing, the use of the photographic lens and "craft writing": the alteration of the image on the computer, be it a photograph, a painting or simply a drawing.

My aim is communication as the re-creation of readings; a language that has hidden inside it what was always there - an emotional or emotive presence; all that was made to inhabit and inhabited by poetic language.

I think of my works as narrative quotes, movie frames or reflective fragments of an essay on our fragmentary, fluid, and transitional world, more like metaphors really or allegories for ways of seeing.

My concern is to narrate / suggest an open story, using the picture as a language, as a means of access to the reality of the «unwritten» world, to cause an emotional vibration - something to shake me up - where its roots are nourished by the soil of the sensible and the conceivable inseparably."
