Noell Oszvald, 1991 ~ Surrealist photographer



Hungarian photographer Noell S. Oszvald is a self-taught photographer and visual artist from Budapest. Her black and white photographs resemble mid-century fashion photography as much as it does the work of her surrealist influences. Severe contrasts between light and dark create graceful lines and a definite composition for each piece. In this way each image is intriguing, not only for its dreamy content but also because they are simply pleasing to look at. Perhaps what is most surprising, though, is the fact Oszvald’s relationship with the camera is relatively new. Only twenty-two years old Oszvald has only been using the medium for a little over a year.

Minjae Lee, 1989 | Pop Surrealism painter



Minjae Lee is a young South Korean painter and illustrator, whose work expresses a semi-disturbing inner tension that is tough to ignore, even if you feel that you’d like to. It draws you in with its powerful colors, halting imagery and clever juxtaposition of beauty, innocence and fragility with brash, loud and aggressive.
What characterizes his work overall is drama. The ethereal females that populate most of his work exude a dark, organic tension, and it seems that even the brightest marker colors do not quite manage to save them from some sort of looming peril.

Victor Crisostomo Gomez ~ Soul of the Forest



Completely self-taught, Peruvian painter Victor Crisostomo Gomez’s approach to art is to portray emotion through intense color and to render the men, women and children in his portraits with a soft, almost dream-like quality. The result is that each painting becomes a beautiful exploration into symbolism, cultural heritage and identity, drawing on a sense of harmony that he tries to instill in each canvas. Victor’s work has been likened to a treasure chest full of mysteries and surprises. Each gem will be revealed the longer you look. Ultimately, Victor seeks to combine the strength and richness of the heritage of the Native Indians of Peru with the rewards and challenges of the urban world. In this way, Victor has become one of today’s most relevant South American portrait artists. He continues to create beautiful paintings in Peru.
