Forceful feminine visions

I am very fond of surrealistic art, as a form of expressing pure, genuine emotions. That is probably why these otherworldly girls, painted by Lori Earley, gained my full interest. Born and raised in New York, Lori studied at School of Visual Arts from NY City and from 2004 began exhibiting her works all over USA and in Europe.

Feminine icons and mythical symbolism

Kris Lewis grew up in a family that gathered seven brothers and one sister, and, although his father provided the artistic genes, it was his mother who actually influenced his work as a painter. She taught him about the importance of working hard, as he watched her raise an entirely family, after his parents' separation.

She encouraged him to cherish her Latvian heritage and that is until today a major influence in his work. Her mother's struggle has had a great meaning for him, and is probably the reason why women are a constant theme in his paintings. Both strength and fragility of them inspire and influence him in his quest of being a better human being.

A bouquet of positive sensations

It wasn't really "love at first sight". After trying various painting styles & mediums, Leonid Afremov decided it was time to focus mainly on oil painting and palette-knife techniques. Using rich, saturated colors his art is "alive and inspired by humanity".
