Francis Sevitt, 1942


Sevitt born in 1942 in Dublin, Ireland. Sevitt Francis art works are predominately women, not associated with any particular time or place -although Renaissance and Moorish influences are evident, writing alone or reading in groups of two mounting golden staircases, holding bouquets of lilies, or meditating near a vase of roses by a open window. The artist's studies of life and ambiance long gone are filled with gentle passion and sensuality. Through intricate details and rich, lustrous, yet somehow muted colors, each canvas conveys a personal imagination that suffuses everything it beholds - and represents - with quiet magic. Sevitt Francis work has been the feature of many exhibitions throughout Europe, Israel, Canada and the United States.

Boyan Bolyarski


Occupation - portraitist. I paint mostly with oil paints, but I did and "pastel" period. Destination of the workplace - Sunny Beach. While the profession "street artist" is despised by the guild, to the dismay of my teacher Gregory Spiridonov - light his finger, despite 15 years I was there. And no scruples I can say that this job has taught me things that would not be going to university, things that everyone must find for yourself. Small secrets beyond academic stereotypes. They always let you step ahead. Well, I am grateful to this period, although it was very difficult and full of experiences. This period has made me what I am. Now it's time to work to your soul.

Trent Gudmundsen, 1978 | En plein air painter


Raised in a small farming town in eastern Utah, American painter* Trent Gudmundsen spent his childhood surrounded by people who worked hard and lived simply, and he was driven from an early age to record his impressions of life in paint.

Jia Lu's works include Chinese ink paintings, oil paintings, watercolors, drawings, sculpture and prints.

Her mature work in oils demonstrates an interest in Buddhism and a purely feminine aesthetic and can be seen as a response to the masculine, sensual approach to the female nude. However, she has also painted male figures. In numerous interviews she has emphasized the importance of beauty in her work, which she describes as "strength and wisdom".

Rabindranath Tagore / Atsushi Suwa ~ Vorrei...


Vorrei sedermi vicino a te in silenzio,
ma non ne ho il coraggio: temo che
il mio cuore mi salga alle labbra.

Ecco perché parlo stupidamente e nascondo
il mio cuore dietro le parole...
Tratto crudelmente il mio dolore per paura
che tu faccia lo stesso...

Roberto Ferri / Pablo Neruda | Your Laughter / Il tuo sorriso..






Toglimi il pane, se vuoi,
toglimi l'aria, ma
non togliermi il tuo sorriso.

Non togliermi la rosa,
la lancia che sgrani,
l'acqua che d'improvviso
scoppia nella tua gioia,
la repentina onda
d'argento che ti nasce.

Dura è la mia lotta e torno
con gli occhi stanchi,
a volte, d'aver visto
la terra che non cambia,
ma entrando il tuo sorriso
sale al cielo cercandomi
ed apre per me tutte
le porte della vita.

Amor mio, nell'ora
più oscura sgrana
il tuo sorriso, e se d'improvviso
vedi che il mio sangue macchia
le pietre della strada,
ridi, perché il tuo riso
sarà per le mie mani
come una spada fresca.

Georges Barbier | Art Déco painter

Nicoletta Tomas / Pablo Neruda ~ Ormai sei mia..




Ormai sei mia. Riposa coi tuo sonno nel mio sonno.
Amore, dolore, affanni, ora devono dormire.
Gira la notte sulle sue ruote invisibili
presso me sei pura come l'ambra addormentata.

Nessuna più, amore, dormirà con i miei sogni.
Andrai, andremo insieme per le acque del tempo.
Nessuna viaggerà per l'ombra con me,
solo tu, sempre viva, sempre sole, sempre luna.

Ormai le tue mani aprirono i pugni delicati
e lasciarono cadere dolci segni senza rotta,
i tuoi occhi si chiusero come due ali grige,

mentr'io seguo l'acqua che porti e che mi porta:
la notte, il mondo, il vento dipanano il loro destino,
e senza te ormai non sono che il tuo sogno solo.
