Paris painting | Part.4

"Only the great distance that separates Paris from my native town prevented me from going back.. It was the Louvre that put end to all these hesitations.

Paris painting | Part.3

"I love the night passionately.
I love it as I love my country, or my mistress, with an instinctive, deep, and unshakeable love. I love it with all my senses: I love to see it, I love to breathe it in, I love to open my ears to its silence, I love my whole body to be caressed by its blackness. Skylarks sing in the sunshine, the blue sky, the warm air, in the fresh morning light. The owl flies by night, a dark shadow passing through the darkness; he hoots his sinister, quivering hoot, as though he delights in the intoxicating black immensity of space"
. Guy de Maupassant

Andrew Hem | Pop Surrealist painter

The Cambodian-born artist Andrew Hem was born during his parents’ flight from Cambodia in the wake of the Khmer Rouge genocide and his upbringing was influenced by the rural heritage of his ancestors and the urban sensibility of Los Angeles, where his family came to reside. Being positioned within these cultural dichotomies fostered an aesthetic inspired by graffiti, as well as tribal and supernatural imagery. Describing his compositions as dreamlike memories inspired by personal experiences, Hem’s ethereal paintings function as a window overlooking the invisible realm of the human spirit.

Julee Simmons | Figurative painter

Ron Hicks, 1965 | Impressionist Figurative painter | Part 2

Ron Hicks* masterfully guides viewers into the emotional realm of art. His paintings draw viewers into the very personal worlds of stolen kisses, handwritten letters and mysterious bedroom scenes.
"I open a dialogue for a story, and it’s up to the viewer to interpret it", Hicks says.
Just as he employs muted tones - often grays - to render his paintings.
His more traditional style, with influences including 17th century Dutch masters*, blends representational art and impressionism*, yet the ideas and stories within his paintings convey a much more contemporary feel.
His loose brushwork and his allowance for models to find their own comfortable poses imbue a depth of humanity and a natural fluidity in his paintings. As he continues to depict slices of life nationwide, he strives to keep his work "as fresh and new as possible", he says. "My hope is that whoever views my work will have their own intimate encounter with it".

Jérôme Birti, 1988 | Abstract Portrait painter

Jérôme Birti was born in Brussels, Belgium where he now lives. From his early observations of life around him as a child to the now ever developing artwork, the same drive and focus animates his swift hand and sharp stance.
Movement interwoven into a knot that loosens before the eyes. Those words seem to encapsulate his art.
