Misa Aihara

"Sometimes I work in chaos. I ask myself "Is the picture worth working for?" My brain tells me "Wrong color!", "Wrong place!" I struggle to find steps. I believe I will come to the goal. I want to give emotional and spiritual impact to a composition of figurative abstract elements."

Verko 17-9 - Oil on canvas 80 x 100cm

We have the ability to sense every color and every shape surrounding us and accept what they are telling. I am always open to the things that come to me through my five senses in my daily life. Some are color and form, some of them come through communication by words and sounds and others come through the atmosphere in the sense of smell, touch and so on. I observe my painting to get inspiration for the next step from the hint of a color either in a small part of the canvas, the whole structure of the canvas or the atmosphere of the image. When I misread the hints, I analyze the reason for my mistake and try to find another step. I always repeat this process to complete a painting. I want to evoke profound feelings in the viewer and invite to explore deeper dimensions of consciousness."

Gregory Dubus

"Procuring pure emotions by creating complex geometric structural compositions made of endless and different triangle architectures and procuring reflections by associating duality of antinomic concepts coexisting together in harmony."

Relax - Painting 86 x 112 cm

French-born artist, Gregory Dubus lives in The Netherlands and specializes in drawing and painting geometrical abstract compositions for more than 25 years. Dubus has been influenced by the Suprematist art movement (basic forms and limited range of colors) and by various artists like Herbin (language codification), Mondrian (lines and structures), Vasarely (organization and movement), Matisse (use of atypical technique) and Monet (the same theme painted multiple times).

His objective is to procure pure emotions to the viewer by creating complex geometric structural compositions made of endless and different triangle architectures and procuring reflections by associating duality of antinomic concepts coexisting together in harmony: Feelings vs thinking; Simplicity vs complexity; Monotony vs diversity; Facility vs difficulty; Planning vs spontaneity; Visible vs invisible; Conscious vs unconscious; effort vs ease…

Dubus' technique is exigent because it requires a lot of patience, rigor, and precision. Indeed, each of the drawings and paintings is made freehand (no ruler used) and often requires up to 100 hours of work. His technique is atypical also because he makes a drawing first on a folder to then makes a large acrylic painting, using the coloring method to make it an entirely different picture even if using the same main lines.

Withering Heights - Painting 86 x 112 cm
Resiste - Painting - 85 x 115 cm
Air from G String - 93 x 123 cm
Logical Song - Painting 85 x 115 cm

Monica Lee

"My inspiration comes from photography. I like black and white photographs because of their classic quality. Thus, my drawings are in black and white. I like the idea of using something as simple as a pencil to create a piece of art. My style emphasizes the details and textures of the subject matter."

Kevin - Graphite 21 x 31 in.

Malaysian artist, Monica Lee (b. 1979) worked as a digital imaging artist for her father's advertising photography studio for 12 years. It wasn't until 2013 that she decided to pick up a pencil again, just for fun, quickly to realize that she still loved drawing. Quitting her job, she started her journey as a full-time artist.

Growing up appreciating photography, made the concept of photorealism appealing to her. Specializing in graphite pencils and charcoal, she works from a photograph, recreating what she sees and further exaggerating or emphasizing the details in her drawings. Through her works, she aims to portray the beauty of wildlife animals. In 2015, Monica was named one of 40 Under 40 winners by Perspective, Hong Kong's premier architecture and design magazine. And in 2016, she was the 1st Prize recipient in Realism Animal Category at the American Art Awards. Recently, she participated in a group exhibition “My Tiger Values: The Art of the Tiger” by Balai Seni Maybank.
