MEET THE ARTIST
Stanislaw Zoladz, snow landscapes: “The most common mistake in painting snow is painting it too clear and strong, with too few shades.”
Carlos Leon Salazar, figures: “I believe that it’s always better when there is a close link between the painter and the subject.”
Georges Artaud, details of landscape: “Each work must have the same level of intensity from start to finish, an identical attention to detail.”
Andrzej Gosik, architecture: “As an architect, I feel naturally drawn to and enjoy painting architectural subjects.”
Portfolio Guan Weixing, portraits: “When portraits are full of life, when they communicate with your soul, then I am satisfied.”
Darryl Steele, birds: “Emotion in birds is expressed in their posture and expression and that is my focus when I paint them.”
Eban, abstract: “A painter should try and constantly surpass himself and aim for something greater than him as a person.”
Special feature: Spanish watercolour. The works of Patricia Castelao, Francisco Castro, Carlos Espiga and Nono Garcia.
Ng Woon Lam, urban scenes: “Working outdoors is a wonderful way of developing a whole new visual language.”
