Vira Yakymchuk

Vira Yakymchuk is a Ukrainian painter, is one of the very few figurative art painters in Ukraine. She is a primarily self-taught painter and has developed her distinctive style based on the color of nature. Whose creative production revolves around the classical figurative painting, presented in a contemporary manner. She reflects reality like a dream, which is also a reflection of real life.

Short Artist Statement

By my work, I am trying to reflect reality like a dream, which is also a reflection of real-life which we live in and feel. Sensations, images, ideas, concepts, thoughts, emotions and feelings reflects objective reality experiences. They express a subjective attitude of humans to objects and phenomena of reality. Nature that awakens our souls to the vast inner freedom, allows us to give up time and space. It is a powerful source of knowledge, which through communication reveals its secrets to a person and makes it more sensitive to the world around him/her. After all, a person's ability to see around him/her, makes a perfect peace in his/her soul and a sense of oneness with nature helps to understand himself/herself and others better.  Is both a celebratory and critical exploration of the delicate and highly complex natural feelings and emotions of human around the world and the human relationship. The work not only investigates the intricate interrelatedness of the human of this various world and feelings, as well as the formation of these systems through the naturally selective forces of reality, but also the human role as a force acting on these systems from the inside and around.

Dr. Shyam Bihari Agrawal

Dr. Agrawal is a very unassuming, simple and humble person. He was born in a well-to-do family of Sirsa in Allahabad on the 1st of September, 1942. The Tagore School of Painting, popularly known as Bengal School of Painting, occupies the most exalted position in the history of modern Indian art. Late Sri Kshitindra Nath Majumdar was one of the most brilliant luminaries of this school.

Dr. Shyam Bihari Agrawal happened to be a disciple of Mr. Majumdar and thus naturally belongs to the school of painting from which his guru derived his sustenance. Dr. Agrawal is, in my view, one of those rare living painters who are enriching and extending the territories of the tradition of painting established by Abanindra Nath Tagore at the close of the 19th century with the explicit intention of giving lndianness to the Indian painting of the day which was growing increasingly slavish day by day to European School of painting. The paintings of Dr. Agrawal have a universal appeal and are capable of providing us aesthetic pleasure of a very high order by means of their suggestively and evocativeness, whether they are done in Basohli style, Mewar style or Kangra style or Bengal School which is a style of his heart's desire.

Dr. Agrawal write many books on Indian Art. Dr. Agrawal is a painter par excellence. His Professional maturity leaves no one in doubt about his artistic excellence. His brush work is vigorous and he has an excellent sense of colour-harmony-qualities that lend a sense of passion and power to his paintings. Dr. Shyam Bihari Agrawal is a very sensitive, imaginative and skilful painter, sculptor and photographer, full of immense potentiality and capability. He is an eminent artist and be able to make his mark in the history of the fine art of India. Dr Shyam Bihari Agrawal joined Fine Art America on April 25th, 2010.

Dr. Agrawal is a painter par excellence. His Professional maturity leaves no one in doubt about his artistic excellence. His brush work is vigorous and he has an excellent sense of colour-harmony-qualities that lend a sense of passion and power to his paintings. His art-works have a great evocative power and they captivate the hearts of the viewers by means of their magnificent workmanship, their imaginativeness of a very high order and above all their well-wrought symbolism. We can place all art works of Dr. Agrawal under the following heads: 


1. Painting in Wash Style. The example of this kind of works are at the work 'Shakuntala, 'Towards the war field', 'Moon and the Wave', 'Milking', 'Unmadinee' (insane), 'At the well', 'Happy Family', 'Chaitanya', 'Saraswati', 'Radha & Shyam' etc. 
2. Painting in tempera style represented by his pictures called 'Teacher and Disciple', 'A Bengali Marriage Scene', 'Winter Night', 'Flower study', etc. 
3. Mural and Fresco Painting typified by his works called 'Innocent-Prisoner' and 'Dance of Gujarat' 'Folk Singer', 'Sarangi Player' etc. 
4. Graphic Art-works in all the three forms (i.e., Etching, Linocut and Woodcut). An example of his colour etching is provided by his work called' Evening Lamp' and' The Yuksha of Meghdoot'. His wood cuts are represented by his works entitled 'The Women Working on the Charkha', 'Shringar' and his best Linocut is the work called 'The Gardener'. 
5. Modernist Paintings or Abstract Paintings such as 'The Prisoner', 'Moon Gazer', 'The Lonely Lady', 'The Couple' etc. 
6. Portraits and Life-studies exampled by his pictures of Mahatma Gandhi, lawaharlal Nehru, Smt. Indira Gandhi and the rickshaw-driver etc. respectively.

The beauty and  innocence is mesmerizing, accented by her perfection in realism.

Art has been a way for Anna to know herself and the world around her.  “Art helps me to express an idea, an emotion or, more generally, my world view through colors, shapes, light, without words.” explains Anna.

Inspired by many of the great masters, Titan, Velazquez, Rembrandt, Rubens, Holbein, Ingres, Boucher, Fragonard, Zorn and Sargent, as well as the great Russian realist school masters, Levitsky, Venetsianov, Bryullov, Serov, and Fechin.  Anna is very proud to be a successor of the traditions of the Russian realistic school of painting.

Jee Yuan Lim

Author of ‘The Malay House’, Institut Masyarakat, Penang, 1987. ‘The best book that I have seen on any indigenous architecture… I’ve seen no better examination of how a successful building type works. This is a brilliant book on a superbly adaptive vernacular house form’ – Stewart Brand, Creator of ‘The Whole Earth Catalog’.

Member of Urban Sketchers Penang, Penang Watercolour Society and Penang Art Society

I have always been interested in painting since I was young. I am self-taught. There are advantages and disadvantages. But self-learning in painting is so easy now with the Internet and You Tube which has democratised the learning of art. But finding your way is both challenging, exciting and difficult though you can learn so much from the masters. Finding your own solutions and signature style is the way to go for me. You can learn techniques from others but it is only with your own solutions to your painting problems that you will create your own style. It will reflect your vision, your technique, your strokes, your character and your strengths and even your weaknesses. That is your personal vision and statement. It is not a copy of nature or others, it is a reaction to nature mediated through one self.

Urban sketching is a great learning process for me. You are challenged by the outdoors, spectators, sights, the changing light and sounds and a time limit that forces you to adapt and learn and develop short-hand methods which is less likely to be developed in studio conditions. You senses become more acute and your vision made sharper. You develop a clearer sense of tone and composition. In other words you develop confidence and character in hour paintings which in turn defines your style.

I am trained in architecture which also trained me see the challenges in the different media and materials and thus learn how to adapt and exploit the strength and weaknesses in them. Even with inferior materials or media they offer us good challenges to learn how to exploit their weaknesses and turn them into strengths. You will forced to react to the difficulties which offers much lessons. Without difficulties, there will be no progress.

Art to me is personal development and fulfillment. With it comes much joys and many sleepless nights. Always thinking of pushing further and breaking new ground. And if we can bring joy, happiness or meaning to others… that’s the added bonus.

Olga Zelinska

Born in Sukhumi, Republic of Abkhazia. Graduated from Sukhumi Art School, Abkhazian State University (as a bachelor of Arts). Since 2002 she lives in Moscow, works as an interior designer and artist. The main message of Olga's artworks is the eternal feminity. Defenseless and omnipotent, sensual, capricious reigns of feminity on all artworks leads directlyu into the soul, bypassing the frames of logic. The overall message of the author defines woman as a creator and devine parent of all things. Olga Zelinska has created a unique style that could contain complicated images of the fundamental questions of being. The complex technique requires a lot of time - every artwork takes about three months and even up to two years - for there are many layers within.

Eminent Artist, United Kingdom

Pierre-Paul Marchini

Originally from Ajaccio, Pierre-Paul Marchini enrolled in the 50 new masters of contemporary art, alongside masters such as Kandisky or Pollock, according to a work of art published in English by professionals in Italy (distributed in galleries of modern art, from collectors). Painter of abstraction and the informal, his geometric meanders translate the impulses of his soul. By diverting the theory of colors and exploiting each of the materials, it breaks with conventional canons.

Pierre-Paul Marchini goes beyond mere representation by diving into the pure psyche. The color is brought to its climax with great freedom. An international art critic, Salvatore Russo, writes about him: "His painting is characterized by the great genius with which the artist draws his lines. He is a painting with action. A painting, which strongly shouts situations, involving the modern man. A painting, which is emerging in contemporary art, and it is a great protagonist.

 

Pierre-Paul Marchini regularly exhibits in Parisian galleries and exhibited at Fiac in 2012. He won the 3rd prize in painting at the 2014 International Contemporary Art Competition. His works are listed in the 2015 edition of the artists' dictionary. contemporaries

Master of Contemporary Art, Ajaccio, French.

Hernan Javier Munoz

He was born on April 5, 1983 in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

He graduated as professor of plastic arts at  "Rogelio Yrurtia" school of art (1996-2000).

In 2001, he began working at the MOA  agency under the Ministry of Environment and Public Space of the Government of the City of Buenos Aires restoring works of art and sculptures.

The artist defines himself as "Autodidact", having attended periodically since the age of 20 at the MNBA (National Museum of Fine Arts) to admire and learn from great artists such as Ernesto de la Cárcova, Edgar Degas, Angel Della Valle, Giacomo Favretto, Reinaldo Giudici and the most influential William Adolphe Bouguereau. Hence, his technique is based on imitating intuitively the palette of the great masters.

Today at 34, the artist creates from his workshop in Buenos Aires.

Muñoz's style is based on figurative painting with a surrealist orientation. In his technique and composition, reality, dreams and levitating people or objects are mixed. The theme of his works refers to the soul, heart and mind that define his works as "Fantastic Realism".

Hyperrealistic Artist, Argentina

Giuseppe Petrone

I was born in Italy, in a small town in Puglia, the 8th of October. Since I was a child I had a considerable inclination in art and design; I suspended this fondness at 14, to focus on studies and work.

In 2016 I started again developping and nurturing my great passion drawing with graphite and charcoal on paper. I am self-taught, I’ve been tested and experienced several techniques and equipments throughout my way, I’ve always worked with perseverance and dedication trying to achieve excellence, and finally finding it in hyperrealism. In October 2016 I took a crush course in hyperrealism drawing technique, taught by the teacher Luca Tedde, becoming increasingly confident, competent and briefed.

 

In November 2017 I experimented also pastel painting technique, I attend an important workshop held by master Ruben Belloso Adorna, I found it very fascinating.

 

In April 2018 I sat a competition, named "Ritratti contemporanei”.

My works evolves juxtaposing with the inspiration from ancient tradition and culture of my country with the contemporary materials and methods. I always like to create works from my memories, love to sculpt the reflections of my visual experiences of the wealth of ancient classical sculptures, rock-cut shelters, temples, shrines, architectures, icons, pillars, lintels, doorjambs, folk and tribal artifacts, totem poles and their fragmentary remnants.

  My Concept is based on the ancient glorious undaunted history of the places  around the World , in all together symbolizes the evolution of Civilization in course of time, the beauty of ancient fragmentary remnants  dating back to its  glorious  era.

    I have a strong inclination towards the ancient history, ethics, culture, values as well as the classical sculptural heritage around the world. So I always love to do my sculptures with the fragrance of my soil, which is my ultimate identity in this International art scenario.

Daniel Maillet

The attraction of painting from life and the intricacies of working with, studying, and portraying the human body are the starting points for the work of Daniel Maillet (Zürich, 1956), studied graphik design with Bruno Monguzzi at the CSIA Lugano. 1977 he began his training as an engraver in the studio of his father, the painter Leo Maillet (1902-1990), during this time he traveled to London, Frankfurt, Prague and München for work. Later graduated from the Brera Academy where he studied under the tutelage of Beppe Devalle and Zeno Birolli. Maillet’s Italian phase includes a brief period in which he worked with Roberto Sambonet, and subsequently with Clino Castelli. The death of his father took him back to Ticino, where he lived up to 2002, than he moved to Brazil and he began a new period, devoting him self to oil paintings rich in colours and equatorial atmospheres, moreover develops figures modelled in clay and natural size. He is dedicated to searching for the best sintering clays, for the high temperature, suitable for large-format sculpture. Daniel teaches drawing specifically for observation and modelling in terra cotta sculpture for great size. His pedagogical experiences began at the Univ. SUPSI in Lugano and continues privately in his studio, such as in art schools, cultural and social centres in different Brazilian cities. He works currently in Brazil and exhibits regularly in Europe. The intense research has led Maillet to build their own gas Kiln for stoneware, for sintered sculptures, assembling ancient Asian knowledge of firing and cutting-edge Western digital technologies. Recently, supported by G. Olmetti, general secretary of the AICC, together with the companies Cibas and Wasp, Daniel began a basic research with engineers of mechatronics, for 3D clay printing, with the aim of being able to make art editions for the grès sculpture.

My artworks for information about me. You can contact me for more detail. My art techniques are digital paintings after photomanipulations and photography arts. 

Ever since getting to know the world, three fundamental points were missing from my life: affection, love, and fun. And these three voids turned into loneliness, unhappiness, and solitude. Started hating people, cities, noise, neighbors, smiling people, real-world, and straight souls. Three missing fundamentals flew me to a spiritual world of my own. Wiped-out all the traditional clichés of the real-world, and started creating my own reality. My art is reflecting my spiritual world, rebellion in my soul, my dreams, and the feelings these reflections are creating in my mind at the moment of painting (on the digital world at this stage). The biggest excitement I carry is imagining my next piece of art…

Artist statement.


 I've been  blessed by the gifts of life, family, kids and art . 

For me, the painting process is a physical and emotional necessity. Themes include humanity’s intrinsic and inseparable connection to nature and the surrounding environment. From a deep concern for the state of our planet to the beauty of the simple objects, there is no mundane subject matter. I feel my art production is a dynamic part of my life, where my love of paint and the process of experimentation with collage and found objects continues to push me in new directions.  My figurative language is influenced by some of the best XIX and XX century European Art like Klimt, Erte , Leon Bakst and Art Nouveau direction in general.

Over the years I developed two distinct directions- painting and collage illustration. My paintings always start with emotion and progress in an intuitive rather than a methodical way. The great benefit of switching direction away from brush to focus on collage allows me to recharge my creative and inspirational wellspring. It is a good way to step away, working in a different media to open different sides of creativity. Working with collage engages a particularly logical flow of ideas, almost like putting a puzzle together. It is more methodical.

 

My inspiration often comes from my training as a fashion designer. I am marrying fashion and art, always looking for “something with a little punch, that arouses curiosity or starts a conversation, like a guilty pleasure”.

Life is dynamic and so is my art. My purpose is to engage the viewer, to draw out a sense of wonder and joy through the colours and textures of my work.

John Cooney

I am an artist living in Carrickfergus, Northern Ireland. I was born in Newry, Co. Down but have lived most of my life close to Belfast. I went to art college in Belfast and Manchester, achieving a first class honours degree in illustration.

While at college, I won first prize at the North West Artists exhibition sponsored by BP. After college I began exhibiting my paintings with Tom Caldwell Galleries and won awards at the Royal Ulster Academy (best painting as voted by the public and UTV award). Despite my success in painting, I began working in advertising which left no time for painting.

 

After further career moves in graphic design using ICT, I began teaching various art classes. I also began teaching in local primary schools. I have now stopped teaching in order to devote myself entirely to painting. I paint in both oil and watercolours, depending on the subject and have no preference. I paint ordinary people in their environments and always try to make the commonplace interesting.

 My work has recently been featured in Artists and Illustrators magazine and this year, I have exhibited at The Royal Society of Portrait Painters at the Mall galleries, London and will be exhibiting again at this year’s Royal Ulster Academy exhibition at the Ulster Museum.

Uhky Uhky

Uhky-Uhky, that is what my friends call me. And before anything else, I’d like to thank Doodlewash, especially Charlie O’Shields, for inviting me to be featured on his website! I am a Filipino Interior Designer based in Singapore with my wife and my two children.

I have always been very passionate when it comes to sketching since I was a kid. Though many times, it was a reason to get away with some house work. My parents were both teachers and are equally supportive as my family now, towards my hobby.

And this is my story… though my work requires me to design, my passion for art was in a roller coaster. I kind of lost my edge a few years back, the urge to draw and to sketch.

Until late last year, I have been sketching non-stop, in almost every opportunity I have. As little time as I have on lunch breaks, I always make it a point to sketch at least something, “a sketch a day” of anything. And I’ve never missed joining Urban Sketchers Singapore’s sketch-walk every month and their ad hoc sketching trips around the city every Saturday with my cousin who actually introduced me to this group.

I started with pen and ink, like most of us in urban sketching with architectural background. I focused more on the proportion and height on human figures, cars against structures while trying to get the right tone and texture- light, medium and heavy ink density to tell when a structure or a figure is near or far while being more conscious on shades and shadows. It was all about layering.

A few months later, I have gained the confidence to try watercolor again and it was one of those critical moments whether to decide and stay with pen and ink or to continue with watercolor. After several attempts while keeping my urge to draw, I came to recognize that watercolor for a beginner, will work out when you simplify objects and shapes- it’s practically going back to basics- the process of determining the big and prominent shapes first and foremost before going into smaller objects in order to compliment. Keeping in mind, it is only an impression of an object and it’s always been about simplification.  

When things are easier to comprehend and understand mainly because it is simple, then then the rest will just follow, e.g., techniques, shadows, composition, colors.

Being creative, I believe personally, comes from these pointers that I am still trying to keep, solve, and develop respectively, every time I do my art piece…. URGE, LAYERING, and SIMPLIFY

Opps…and have FUN along the way! Keep on Sketching! With your right hand and perhaps with your left hand on your next art piece! A trick we use to loosen up a sketch.
