Shannon Toth's sultry muses

Inspired by the romantic atmosphere of 1920’s cinema, the circus world, and by the whimsical universe of Edward Gorey, Canadian artist Shannon Toth developed a unique, imaginative style ranging from delightful children's book illustration to oil paintings with symbolic darker undertones.

The imaginarium of Agnes Boulloche

Agnes Boulloche lives in a fantasy world (partially located in Ile de Re) where phantasmagorical creatures tell tales about humanity. Her colorful oil paintings full of elaborate allegorical details recall the Old Masters, while her art comes out as a unique mix of Modern Renaissance, contemporary Surrealism and Symbolism.

Melancholic vision of desire

Audrey Kawasaki’s artworks are based on splendid contradictions. Her painted heroines and heroes are erotic and innocent, young but wise, disturbingly beautiful, intentionally ambiguous. Audrey’s style is influenced by both Manga comics and Art Nouveau, her ideas being brought to life with unique, flawless painting techniques.

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.

Paintings, traveling and a seek for inspiration

I simply love the world that Seth Armstrong depicts through his paintings. He mixes realism with a touch of fictional; he knows how to be ironic without crossing the line, and funny without diminishing the message of his artworks. Plus, if the subject of his works is violence or sensuality, he delivers a powerful message, in a subtle way, without underestimating the viewer’s intelligence.

Benjamin Anderson's artistic "soup"

Benjamin Anderson's biggest passions are portraits. That's because this type of art work provokes him to find a representation that reflects the many different characteristics of an individual.

Charming Baker

When you look at one of Charming Baker's paintings you are left with this peculiar feeling of discomfort and intimacy. The artist himself declares that "the effect I'm aiming for in my work is that slightly unnerving feeling you get when you have your arse patted in public but you're not exactly sure who's patting it".
