by Lee Down

Alex Johnmeyer I always knew I wanted to be an artist. However, finding my own style? Well, that took a little while longer.

01-01-2017

The one thing that modern art gives us, such as that by Kavitha Saminathan,  is canvasses of pure delight. No longer is it necessary for viewers of art to be well informed of the story behind a painting or the absolute context of a visual work. Because of the way art has grown since the …

Soulmate, watercolour by Stephanie Noblet
by
24-06-2016

One need not survey a large selection of Stephanie Noblet’s art in order to see that she lives up to her name, “Noblet” or “Noble.” While it may be argued that her work pushes the line between art and what some may see as sexually evocative, still, it is clear that she keeps that line …

A resident of Nice, France, artist Alain Laugier’s typical topics for his paintings are, not surprisingly, romantic. While he does delve into the area of painting portraits with decidedly less success, his emphasis is the romantic scene.
