Graham Dean has exhibited internationally for over 25 years and his work is part of numerous private and public collections around the world. He lives and works in Brighton, England.

The armor.

Dean considers the human body as “an enclosure for the emotions”. thus, his characters represent vessels that contain both ideas and emotions. Following Reich’s research on “armor”, Dean sees the body as “a memory bank: a thinking body. As the world becomes more and more congested, so will the bodies of the peoples ”. These central themes were the basis of his first solo exhibition at Waterhouse & Dodd. Subsequent exhibitions continued the exploration of the human condition and our relationship to our own environment.
Using a technique he calls “reverse archeology”. Graham Dean reinvents the traditional uses of watercolor to achieve a unique technique. Contrasting coats of paint are applied separately on heavy handmade South Indian paper.

Painter
Location: Los Angeles (US)

 

 

 

 

 

 

Los Angeles-based Aaron Garber-Maikovska is a multimedia artist whose work encompasses painting. The drawing. Sculpture and video. His style is marked by frenzied and expressive lines and colors. Perhaps taking the form of a letter, sign, portrait, comic book, or even calligraphy. These paintings seem illegible, almost cryptic. With lines and colors fading and out of sync. The viewer can attempt to examine the meaning of Garber-Maikovska’s work. However, the artist’s goal is to convey new modes of communication through gesture.

Visually, the paintings have bravado and a frivolous sense of movement and rhythm. From previous examples, with bold black lines, to later works. With a chaotic use of paint and pastel. Garber-Maikovska has an idiosyncratic approach that really stands out.

David Zinn

Painter/Street Art

David Zinn has been creating original works of art in and around Ann Arbor, Michigan since 1987. For over twenty years he has freelance work for a wide variety of commercial clients while simultaneously introducing “useless” art. In the world at large. His professional commissions included theatrical posters. Company logos. Educational cartoons. Landfill murals. Environmental superheroes. Hand painted corporate allegories and dump trucks. His less practical designs involved coasters. Restaurant placemats. Cake icing and snow. Now, thanks to the temptations of a sidewalk chalk box on an unusually sunny day, Mr. Zinn is known the world over for the art he creates under his feet.

Pareidolic anamorphosis.

David’s temporary street drawings are composed entirely of chalk. Charcoal and found objects. His drawings are always improvised on the spot thanks to a process called “pareidolic anamorphosis” or “anamorphic pareidolia”. Most of its creatures appear on Michigan sidewalks. But many have surfaced as far as the subway platforms in Manhattan. Village squares in Sweden and street corners in Taiwan. It has gained worldwide notoriety through sharing on Facebook pages. Instagram. Huffington Post. Graffiti Art Magazine. Bored Panda. Central China Television. Street Art Utopia and Endless Geyser of Awesome by Archie McPhee. His most frequent characters are Sluggo (a bright green monster with rod eyes and irreverent habits). Philomena (a phlegmatic flying pig), but the diversity of Mr. Zinn’s menagerie seems to be limited only by the size of the sidewalk and the spirit of the day.

The artist, J Louis paints exquisite and abstract forms. It creates a vibrant story that intelligently directs the viewer into personal introspection.
J Louis considers himself a dynamic impressionist. Building what he calls “moments of fleeting light, abstract space and intelligently posed subjects”.
“I have always been fascinated by visual harmony”, explains J Louis, “by characters who give voice to an emotional and spiritual dialogue”.

French impressionists.

The abstractions of figures often juxtaposed in the work of J Louis produce a visual harmony. Timeless and spiritually charged in a velvety color palette. The female figures of his first figurative show show a radiance reminiscent of the great French impressionists. Refreshingly associate abstract spaces with the vision of a new type of American expressionist.
Known for its rich expression of color. Its perfectly concentrated energy and its impeccable line evoking a bygone era. J Louis’s appreciation for life and love is revealed in his selection of pose, subject and shadow.
“My greatest hope for my work is to reveal a deeper passion and appreciation for life and to connect viewers to the kinetic energy of my art,” says J Louis.

Artist statement:

I am an expressionist artist, I consider all my work to be visual poems.
For me, nature is very important and plays a very essential role in my life. So, I am a nature lover. Mother Nature is my sanctuary and my ultimate comfort. I am an avid observer of nature. And the contemplation of nature helps me to achieve inner peace and to achieve moments of zen.

My artwork, although abstract in nature, offers symbolism that refers to the status of a mysterious future. The way life is such a precious commodity. My work also shows a sense of identity of who I am as an artist: my hopes, aspirations and dreams.
Therefore, the work becomes a bridge of reflection and connection to the past, present with a sense of wonder at what the future holds.

Exhibition2021.

Personal exhibition for the month of February 2021 at the prestigious “NYC Phoenix Art Gallery” founded in Manhattan in 1958, on “Tenth Street”. The gallery’s first exhibitors are renowned artists like Elaine de Kooning and Alice Neel.

Vian Borchert interview

HappenArt: Let’s start with a little exercise. I am going to give you a few words so that you give me a definition of what Art represents for you. These are the words: soul, people, life, me, past, present, future.

Vian Borchert:

Soul: “The soul never dies” and “The soul of the artist is revealed through the artwork”.
People: “There is kindness in people”
Life: “Life is so precious for an artist”
Me: “As an artist, it is very important to be me”
Past: “The past prepared me for the present”
Present: “The Present is the most essential time, and the only real time one has.”
Future: “Plan for it – Yet, don’t live your life in the future or else you’ll lose your life today.”

HA: And now, if you were to describe the Painting freely, what words would you choose?

VB:

Painting for me is a bridge I have to cross to be as free as I can be. My abstract expressionist paintings are a product of my own imagination and subconscious allowing me to achieve a sense of freedom like no other. Especially in abstracts, I feel the subconscious and the soul become the most alive and subsequently very free.

HA: And how would you describe your Artwork?

VB:

My artwork is abstract expressionist in a painterly style. My art is a sum of who I am as a person along being a window to my soul. So my paintings capture my vision. What I saw in a journey or an engaging passing thought I have to document on canvas. The titles of my artwork help reveal and deliver the narrative on each painting.

HA: And why the Painting?

VB:

Painting for me is very rewarding. Simply the process of the creation from the pigments coming out of the tubes to the chemistry of the mixture of colors is very fulfilling. I like to almost play with paint where the process delivers me to places where I step into my own world full of colors metaphorically so to speak.

HA: What are the qualities that a Painter should have?

VB:

A painter should first and foremost be true to themselves as an artist meaning true to their vision and identity. A true artist / painter should be also a creative being who is an innovator creating artwork from their vision. A painter should have a passion for the process of creation.

HA: Are your works advice for others or ´arms´ that help you defend yourself from others or from lived experiences?

VB:

My work is the sum of who I am from my victories to my defeats, from the acceptance to the rejections, from unrequited love to fulfilling love. My work is not one thing – it is all of me and all of my life’s journey’s experiences put together in a visual depiction through my art. Hence, my artwork is a vehicle of the ups and downs of my life but also the memories, the nostalgia, the hopes, the fears all coming together in shaping a composition of an effective painting.
In regards to the viewers and my message, my paintings do welcome the viewer to step into my world of colors, waves, brush strokes, composition and allow them to sail away into my world through a visual lyrical journey.
I aim through my art to bring-forth feelings of rejuvenation and even happiness upon viewing my work.

HA: Are there any Artists who have influenced the way you paint or work?

VB:

I admire so many artists and have studied art along teaching for so many years. I’ve always been attracted to artists who present a raw and honest strong vision in their work – artists such as Michelangelo to Degas, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Francis Bacon and Claude Monet. Yet, for me as an artist the point of doing art is to first and foremost express myself and not in any way look at another artist to be similar to. Art for me is a form of exploring my identity and who I am as a creative being. I am aware that I do belong to the expressive painterly modern genre of art so to speak if I have to pinpoint my style. 

HA: What do you think of painting these days?

VB:

The state of painting can be better if art education is given more weight.

HA: In conclusion, what do you want to defend or say in your Art?

VB:

For me art is a personal experience not only to the creator but to the viewer as well. Good art and effective paintings do not need the artist to be next to it to defend or describe it to the viewer. If the viewer doesn’t get the desired aesthetic experience from viewing the artwork then the artwork has not done its part in delivering the message regardless of what it is. For artwork to be effective, it needs to stand on its own without the artist defending it or giving it further explanation so that people can understand. The art has to stand strong and deliver on its own, and when it does then the art is a definite success. 

Thank you Vian Borchert.
