Girls with hearts on a sleeve

Nom Kinnear-King is a young British painter focused on female imagery, as projections of her passion for literature, travelling, folklore. Some of her works are results of special encounters; others are inspired by theatre, circus, and Balkan music, films of Jean Pierre Jeunet or famous artists like Toulouse Lautrec, Marc Chagall and Frieda Kahlo.

Cars, vivid colors and ghosts

What I love most about Andreas M. Wiese's paintings is that each of them has a captivating scenario at its core. Whether is about old cars, lost cities, troubling, ghostly characters, each artwork opens a strange and unique world to the observer where all things are at the line between magic realism and surreal.

Sisters, farms and supernatural forces

Rural scenes, sad brides, strange sisters, crows, fire, superstitions and supernatural forces. These are what Andrea Kowch captures in her beautiful, mysterious paintings, shown all over in the United States and Canada.

The new face of reality

Gage Opdenbrouw aims at painting "the exterior world in such a way as to evoke the mysterious richness & vastness of the interior world each of us carries within". Working especially with oil paints, this talented artist gets his inspiration from real life, but after studying and sketching his subjects he focuses on something not entirely visible. Because nothing seems to be what you thought, the second time you give it a glimpse.

Disturbing reality seen by Fred Einaudi
