I am self taught artist, based in Manchester UK. My art is a reflection of what I have experienced and encountered during my journeying towards spirit.
Some paintings are translations that I receive in dream states and visions, others are personal experiences.
I hope my art will bring a sense of well being and healing to the viewer as color is a powerful healing tool for one to access and bring harmony on all levels.

Erik Brede is a self-taught Norwegian photographer and photoshop artist interested in surrealism, composite art, nature and landscape photography. With a conceptual approach, Brede tries to approach a wide scale of subjects in a multi-layered way to produce a link between the landscape’s reality and that imagined by its conceiver. These works focus on concrete questions that determine our existence.
Erik startet to explore photography at the age of 13, and spent all his time in his fathers old darkroom and post-production have always been an important part of his workflow. His black and white work is inspired by artists like Ansel Adams, Dorothea Lange, Henri Cartier Bresson, Arno Minkkinen and Jeanloup Sieff, while his surreal work is inspired by artists like René Magritte, Jerry Uelsmann, Sarolta Ban, Erik Johansson and Michael Vincent Manalo.
His favourite quote is 'You don't take a photograph, you make it.' - Ansel Adams
Erik Brede was born in 1971 in Svolvaer, Lofoten Islands, Norway, but he currently lives and works outside of Oslo.
Born in 1991 in Soviet Union during its last days, currently residing in Queensland, Australia.
Respectful daughter (hence all my difficulties:), older sister, best friend, dedicated barista, scatterbrain engineer, art school dropout, obsessed with music. I have been the biggest fan of the British band Depeche Mode since I was 13 (which makes it 10 years so far), on a mission to meet those who formed my favourite band and through their amazing songs helped me become what I am now...
I started this project 7 years ago. It's an enormous (107x77cm in size) cross-stitched poster of Depeche Mode from the 'Smash Hits' magazine that came out in September 1981, featuring the founders of the band. At the beginning of their career in the 80s Depeche Mode were this pop-band with catchy tunes, but later on they sort of went to the darker side of things and publicity shots became kind of gloomy, black and white. I just wanted to go in the opposite direction and work on an endearing photo - and what can be more endearing than a photo of the band from the 80s??
This poster is my way to show the band my appreciation - I'm hoping to present it someday. I happened to read stories about unusual and strange presents from fans, and sometimes the kind of stories leave you feeling really odd and even uncomfortable… So I decided that my gift has to be bright and sunny, full of warmth - hence this particular photo in this particular way.
My mum showed me how to do cross-stitch when I was little, I tried it and I liked it a lot. At first I was just doing small pieces, but then decided to do something big… For this piece I used just the regular embroidery threads on canvas you can get almost from any craft shop. My project took about 2km of thread of 45 different colours.
During the past 2 months I've been trying to get in touch with the band representatives and generally spreading the word about my devotion. These pictures are traveling all over the world and my message to the band was translated to several languages. On my list I already have some radio and press appearances.
At the moment I'm working on another project in the same technique - it's a picture of the 5th member of Depeche Mode, Alan Wilder, who replaced one of the founders later on and is not featured on my first poster.
Well, I guess, that's it...

Specialising in oil painting of landscapes, still life and florals. I am honored to have studied under and will continue my mother's legacy, artist Margit Csanky Arvay. She began my training in my preteens and I have continued to paint and study throughout college and to present day.
I prefer to paint and preserve moments, as photographs do. A flower reaching to the sun, the desert as is passes through the window driving, and so. Here are a few paintings depicting those moments.

'I used to have a coffee shop and drew the customers and created paintings to sell in the shop. I am a self taught artist and like fast mediums like Graphite, acrylic, and my iPad . I've been working alot on the iPad recently and enjoy the speed and vibrancy of the medium. I get large scale prints produced and delete the original file when sold, making it the only copy, and paint a small cappuccino cup in a location only known to the buyer for authenticity .
I would say my style is detailed expressionism (if there is such a thing) I like movement and energy. I love the freedom in painting landscapes and the challenge of portraiture.'

I paint on canvas but I love to paint on wood with acrylic the most.
My style is usually abstract or figurative but what I do mostly are portraits because I love 'to catch the essence of people'. I've been deeply in love with art forever, and totally self study.

I mainly work in oil on canvas or panels. I class myself as a lively expressionist. I love colour and shapes; I find excitement in the empty space with no pre - conceived idea of what Im about to create.
My work is made up from my energy, the first mark I make is the catalyst for my work, and they’re just in marks and shapes that form a language, which I have a conversation with.
Painting is like fine dining with an interesting friend.

Mark Pol, born 17th October 1943 in The Hague has found an early passion for painting. His interest in drawing and painting started in primary school. And later on he went to the Free Academy of Art in The Hague led by George Lampe the followed by Photo Academy in The Hague.
The work of Mark Pol, also shown on his website (http://www.markpol.nl), is in essence inspired by daily human life, without losing its vulnerability and the animal unpredictability. Despite the timeframe the painting or drawing might seem to be in, humanity is key in his work.
In the early stage of a painting, Mark Pol draws his thoughts and dreams with a pencil and then continues his vision with a basis of oil - or acryl paint on canvas. The expression of Mark Pol are often too much for the two dimensional canvas and the result is a three dimensional world, shown in different materials.

Practicing artist and Illustrator, living in Brighton. Producing a range of work consisting of Illustration, print making and more conceptual work. The Illustration work embodies the love of drawing and portraiture. Seeing drawing and sketching as the basis for all works of visual art. A starting point and a finishing point. Recent work has explored portraiture and photo realism.
Taking influence from Walter Benjamin and his work "The work of Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction" the collage work looks at Reproduction within society and popular culture, and how ‘reproduction’ of image, text, fashions and even language distort the original meaning, or ‘aura’ they were originally produced for. Almost using it as a distraction from other aspects of life.
Busby Berkeley's use of pattern and moving image inspired much of the aesthetic. His use of numerous dancers creating cascading patterns of limbs, feathers and movement imposing a possible distraction from the supposed economical status of 1930's.
Trying to simultaneously critique and celebrate popular culture.
Very much interested & inspired by institutional indirect engagement of adult role play, the power of association. Rather than typical avenues of extremes, the rich & poor, or traditional characteristics of childhood play I focus on the gate keeping transitional process that identifies & services those emotive extremes, adult role play in different forms.
My productive output will cover many traditional forms of media, from sculpture, in various materials, Fresco style painting & modern 3D cad & digital animation. Many historical & classical masterpieces will have a new lease of life with a modern twist plus pushing the frontiers where play becomes a little less innocent & blame association justifies a gut & knee jerk reaction.

I am a pop surrealist artist with bipolar that makes free-form surreal work using dali's paranoiac method of art making. I do not plan, sketch or refine, and simply make the piece in one solid go. I focus on feminism, objectification, mental illness, and the social issues surrounding body image. I mainly employ gel pens, blush, lipstick, glitter, bic pens, and other anti-art materials to go against the grain of the establishment and male gaze.

My practice is an exploration of childhood memories, trauma and emotions. I have a fascination with the bizarre and the unusual which stems back to a film I watched as a child called The Freaks. I remember having such sympathy with the individuals in the film, it had a profound affect on the way I viewed people who were different. This has, in turn, affected the way I work, my assemblages have a touch of nostalgia and a fragility to them. I tend to make work that reflects the passing of time, with my paintings I try to create a visual language out of my past, I am telling a story that suggests a narrative using metaphors and images offering the viewer their own interpretation and internal dialogue.

As an artist I view change as a positive creative force and each change in my life has influenced my art. The five years I spent in Australia with my wife brought many changes including a family, Australia’s unique natural environment brought a renewed interest in landscape painting.
Since my return to Scotland in 2006 I have found new inspiration in my surroundings and I continued to build on the developments in my painting started in Australia. My work focuses on landscape and the river Endrick as well as the flowers in my garden. I live in Balfron near Loch Lomond National Park, Scotland with my wife, two children and one dog.
I am influenced by art of the past, the distant past, the not so distant twentieth century modernism and contemporary art. The ideas that drive artists to create have changed, the need to make art has not. Modernism showed that anything can be art, the theme of my art is the natural environment around me. I am drawn to look at and to make art that is painterly although I appreciate a broad spectrum of approaches, of ways of interpreting. Frank Stella the American abstractionist has said that he likes art that is real, that can convince you that it’s present or authentic, not as an illusionistic representation but in its presence. I would say that I identify with this idea although it is hard to define and aspire to make art with such qualities.
I studied at Glasgow School of Art followed by post graduate studies in New York and worked in film and TV set design for 17 years whilst continuing to develop my painting when time allowed.
Additionally to my painting I started teaching in 2008, in 2010 my wife and I founded art4you Scotland an arts centre offering art classes, workshops and regular exhibitions.
I am Contemporary Artist from Liverpool who works within a number of different mediums. I currently live in Leeds where I am working towards a Fine Art (BA Hons) Degree. I love to question certain things in my works, and I feel I will continue to do so, for the foreseeable future.
My practice has arrived in the world of light art. I have been working with lots of different media in an attempt to experiment as much as I can. I really started to think about colour and just colour, realising that colour is all my work is about. I love colour, it’s a major part of everyday life, it affects people’s moods, and it helps people out every day whether it be traffic lights or day-to-day living. This is a massive moment for me as I have always been unsure of what I’m really looking at in my practice and what my intentions were. Now I am happy with just looking at colour and what colour can do in Art, whether it may be paint/light/installation/performance.
In my most recent works I’m applying my understanding of colour into the world of lighting. My latest paintings looked at the colour spectrum and in particular the visible light spectrum. The later is essential to the way we see the world, the spectrum is every colour we ever see. I am working toward my work having a certain subtlety in my work, this started with my paintings I had in a local exhibition as it almost blended in with the architecture of the building itself. This was an important moment of realisation that the colour works I am doing don’t have to be bright colours but can be subtle, and not as loud. I am therefore integrating this idea into my work with fluorescent light tubes.
With my light work, I almost want it to just be part of the room. Sometimes maybe its unsure whether its even a piece of Art, it could just be a light in the room. Or you walk in to a room and it’s just filled with a subtle orange light, you can’t see any tubes or lighting its just illuminated very subtlety. This is my aim at the moment to capture this moment, I am aware it isn’t easy to make this happen but I like to set myself goals whether they are unrealistic or not doesn’t matter to me, I feel I can make it all happen one way or another.

I am a self taught artist based in Cheshire UK, where I now spend time in my studio searching to create a unique style of artistic representation of many and varied subjects. The search isn’t over, and I suspect it never will be, as the variety of styles in my work will bear out, ranging from realism through to abstract.
In earlier works I produced a series of paintings known as The Bar Scenes. The style in these pieces is semi figurative, almost abstract with overtones of realism. The works are inspired by the hustle and bustle that usually accompanies dining out at Wine Bars or Restaurants. Dining out is usually a very pleasurable experience that consists of a myriad of external influences firing our senses, the clatter and chink of glasses, crockery and cutlery, the smells sights and sounds. Our attention may be focused intently on a partner, in which case the ambience affects us subliminally, or specific observations can focus our attentions more directly
The scenes within the series of paintings are constructed from a number of sketches and ideas that are transferred to the canvas. A technique of layered pallet knife application, and more often than not removal of one or more layers of oils, develops the vibrancy and movement. Specific areas of focus are developed using brush work which, in contrast to the knife application, helps create the subliminal and focussed experiences. Regardless of the subject matter, the artwork remains fluid and seeks to present things as they are experienced rather than viewed.
Surreal art presents us with, more often than not, a very real depiction of subject matter with objects and images in an out of context environment. In the 4 years dedicated to the search, several pieces have been produced in this style; heavily influenced by the grand master of surrealism, Salvador Dali.
I have produced various portraits of close family, friends and celebrities in two distinctive styles, namely realism and mosaic. These two styles lend themselves naturally to portraits as they not only allow the unique colours and tones of the subject to be presented but also artistic license that to present shapes and colours that sit behind the physical representation thus incorporating what is felt as well as what is seen, especially depicted in the mosaic style that lends itself perfectly to the chiselled features of a rugby player! This does not however ensure the magic of a portrait is complete, the piece must capture the spirit of the subject, and that's the challenge.
There are occasions when the seriousness of art can be put to one side to allow the fun of letting the pen or pencil to do the work, doodling.Sometimes a doodle needs to be taken a little more seriously, by committing it to oils on canvas. These occasions have been captured in a series known affectionately as The Misfits These pieces all started life as idle moments I have spent with a pen and a piece of paper doodling, only later realising the potential of representing them in oils on canvas.
I have been inspired by many artists, Picasso, Caravaggio, Bacon, Dali to name but a few.

I have had an interest in art all my adult life and it is only in recent years that I’ve felt motivated to do more than just look. One day I tried my hand at an assemblage to get a frustrating notion out of my head - it didn't work and I'm still trying...
It's my view that war and weapons of conflict have been ‘pimped up’ and choreographed into a modern culture of ‘designer violence’. I feel disturbed when I observe the brutality of war treated as a game or accorded easy legitimacy in the pursuit of political objectives. Weapons have become fashionable ‘bling’ and de-rigueur for any wannabe ‘gangsta’ or fantasist. Video games desensitise players to the true horror of armed conflict. The bloody reality contrasts sharply with the fantasy and this is what I want to demonstrate through my work. I seek to generate disturbing feelings and provoke thinking about our attitudes towards conflict; and how easily we accept killing & maiming as something normal that appears on the 6 o’clock news for our morbid curiosity or entertainment...
• Do our everyday attitudes and behaviours contradict the outward respect we display for the millions who have lost their lives in past conflicts?
• What attitudes are we imprinting upon future generations?
• Can weapons be anything more or less than instruments of mutilation and death?
• What are your thoughts and feelings?

'I am a 19 year old artist who moved from Philadelphia to Vegas. I do traditional pencil art and learned digital art from drawing on my iPad. The thing that inspires me as a artist is that you can never truley master art and everyone is different and I'm really motivated to get to that point when my art is hanging up in places and a lot of people can recognize my art.
I mainly focus on realism and 3D sketches but I have a big feeling for drawing tattoos because I wanna get into that industry.'

'I am a multi-media photographer. I shoot both digital and film, sometimes combining the two to create special effects. Living in Northeastern Nevada, I have a wealth of natural subject matter from landscapes, nature, animals, and objects related to the lifestyle here. My style is a combination of decisive moment and photographic impressionism. Many of my images are composites where I combine two or more images, or elements from several images to create my vision. Some are digital art with a photographic origin (all my own images of course). I use a variety of analogue and digital effects.'

'The journey for me has been relatively short, four years discovering what life's purpose had in store for me. At first, words flowed out of my mind in an airial dance, revealing the inner workings of my tired soul. You can imagine the cleansing my body felt each time I took pen to paper, or finger to smartphone. Eventually, this was not enough, although words can carve out an image in one's head, nothing beats the true form and shape of a visual piece to accompany it. The flame arose burning the desire for new creation. Each day was a learning experience as methods grew and ideas surfaced from the subconscious. Acrylics, oils, oil pastels, charcoal, digital, photography, more and more to fill my being and draw out the juices wanting for peace. Lessons are thought by the environment, the people walking among the land, objects looking for someone to say, "hello," or from deep within this being I live with daily. Evolution becomes the master to drive me towards perfection, whatever that may be, but desire will never be quelched! I move on.'

"Hi, it’s me, Marie. I am a French visual artist, working with my camera, food, ornaments and people.
Ornaments are living objects clinging onto their supports. They inoculate their identity into the support which is grafted. In this way, with their support they are becoming through photography a whole new story.
I’m currently living in France, studying for my Master in Fine Art at the European School of Art of Brittany, in Lorient. It’s after a semester at the Dublin Institute of Technology, in Fine Art, that I started to understand how to stage simple little everyday objects into narrative images. It’s with my Bachelor, which I obtained last year, that the limit between Design and Art, appeared really thin to me but very enjoyable to cross and play with.
That’s why, before leaving you, I hope you’ll have a real pleasure in being trapped inside my photos and that you’ll make your own very personal story from them."

"My journey into art has come from a career in Architecture. My love of technical drawing has matured into using just an ink pen and stippling to create light and shadow with just dots of ink and now more excitingly with hammer and nails.
I have always been fascinated with how little information the brain needs to interpret a picture and love the simplicity of a picture made up from just dots.
I started experimenting a couple of years ago by using nails instead of ink to make the dots. My first nail picture was ‘Elephant on a Bed of Nails’, which has recently been sold. As the technique seemed to work, I followed it up with the work ‘Liver Building Nailed’.
The whole process thrills me, taking just a hammer and a box of nails and arranging them into a piece of art. My work is based initially on a photograph which I painstakingly reproduce by stippling with an ink pen. The inked drawing is then enlarged to mark out where the nails go and then the nailing begins..... many thousands of nails later I have the finished piece. It is very tactile art and the viewer will find it hard not to touch the work.
My technique has evolved and developed over time, I now use tiny nails which enable the viewer to see and interpret the work more closely and in detail. I currently have over half a million nails in my studio waiting to be ‘nailed’.
After winning the Warrington Contemporary Art Competition in 2012 with ‘Lashes and Nails’, my first solo exhibition ‘Nailed It’ was held last year and was so successful that the Gallery continued my Exhibition for a further month in a neighbouring gallery.
This exhibition featured an eclectic and diverse mix of popular icons of modernity, architecture and the natural world, various themes to portray the possibilities of this medium.
Since then I have had a successful launch in the Smart Gallery in Yorkshire and I have future exhibitions planned for 2014.
With publicity on the internet I have achieved worldwide interest and sales, including USA, Belgium, Italy, Pakistan and of course the UK.
You really need to see and touch my work up close as photographs just don't do it justice."

Beverley is an artist whose works have evolved through a desire and fascination to spontaneously capture movement and expression. This desire has evolved over time having studied and experimented with many mediums including drawing, animation, photography and assemblage.
Beverley lived and worked for six years in Mexico where the culture, light and sounds played an important influence in her work, and now continues her practice back home in London.
During the last few years music, people and portraits, have been the focus of Beverley’s works, most commonly she works directly from life collaborating with performing musicians believing this to be the best way to genuinely capture the energy and intensity of the movement as well as her own expression.
