Meet the artist:
Julian Bruere, Outdoor painting: “It is stimulating to be outside and up against it! You see real things and meet odd people.”
Leo Kaplan, Landscapes: “When I paint I feel as if I am standing in the middle of the flow of time, observing myself at the same time.”
Ken Goldman, Miscellaneous: “Using various mediums in differing ways allows me to express my ideas in a unique way.”
Nicole B., Abstract. “Trying to see the abstract shapes that lie beyond the subject and the dominant colour.”
Portfolio Andrei Zadorine: “Watercolour is only used for the sketches. However, there are some exceptions.”
Isabelle Corcket, Urban scenes: “Café terraces, rooftops, and the simple pleasures of existence are my favourite subjects.”
Jean-Luc Mossion, Landscapes: “For me, painting from life is essential because you are in direct contact with the light.”
Somsak Chowtadapong, Abstract: “Serendipity has made my paintings come to life and prevents them from appearing too perfect.”
Yann Lesacher, Travel Log: “How I spent 5 long hours in custody” and other stories…
Charles Rouse, Cityscapes: “The complexity, vitality and grittiness of cityscapes is a huge draw.”
Tejo Van Den Broeck, Self-portrait: “You can use a self-portrait to convey any idea or message you want.”
