Mo Tuncay is a self-taught and extraordinarily gifted abstract artist who paints, not so much scenes, as he does notions of scenes—paintings that allow his viewers to experience the emotions of being in these ideal spots.

A resident of Nice, France, artist Alain Laugier’s typical topics for his paintings are, not surprisingly, romantic.
