Italian artist Paolo Damiani takes up and reinvents classic themes with a modern, abstract twist. Born into a family of artists in Rome, Paolo’s passion for art began at a young age. Since then he has dedicated his life to experimenting with different painting styles and techniques. Inspired by both graphic design and the artistic traditions of Northern Europe, Paolo’s combined use of oil, tempera and acrylic colors blends and balances his subjects. He has had numerous exhibitions throughout Italy, France, Germany and Malta, including solo shows at the St Stephen Cultural Center in Rome and the Chateau de Flamanville in France.

Raised near St. Petersburg, Russia, Tatiana Ilina was inspired by the masterpieces by Monet, Kandinsky and Andrei Rublev that she saw while visiting the nearby Hermitage. She later earned her Master of Arts from Stieglitz St. Petersburg State Academy of Art and Industry before moving to Montreal, where she has lived for 30 years. Tatiana brings life and liveliness to her canvases with bold color compositions and quick, bold strokes of paint with her palette knife. Tatiana has built an international following and collector base from her viral painting demonstration videos on Youtube to her numerous exhibitions online and throughout Canada and Russia.

Dutch artist Larissa Eremeeva lived and worked in the Netherlands and the United States before settling in Italy, where she currently resides. In her recent works, Larissa seeks to encourage introspection and convey the depth of human emotion to her canvases through textures, lines and soft colors. She hopes that viewers of her evocative abstract paintings will feel gently drawn back to significant emotions and memories in her life. Larissa’s paintings have been exhibited in the United States, the Netherlands, Belgium and Italy, and are also in collections in North America, Europe and Asia. See more of Larissa’s work Here.
In his unique geometric line drawings, Hungarian artist Sagi Gyula Experiments with form, pattern and the intersection of technology and nature. Drawing inspiration from graphics, digital mapping, and machine code, Gyula approaches his work as if he were solving a mathematical equation: he analyzes and decomposes data, then assembles the pieces into a visual construction. His works on paper with ink, pencil, pen and acrylic are reminiscent not only of scientific analysis but also of abstract, gesture-based landscapes. Gyula graduated from the University of West Hungary in 2010 and has lived in Berlin ever since. His work has been exhibited in solo and group exhibitions across Europe. See more of Gyula’s work Here.
