A sick Love (puke, blood, cum)

Juliya Obukhovskaya

Juliya is a Madrid-based self-taught mirror mosaic artist creating bold, eye-catching, statement art pieces. She’s attracted to the simplicity and versatility of geometric shapes, playing with positive/negative space and creating pieces that can be rearranged in different ways.

 

The process of working with mirror mosaic is a contradiction: glass is broken and then put back together. Broken glass is sharp, raw and difficult to control, however the finished pieces are smooth, collected, polished and pleasing to the eye. Each piece is a puzzle with infinite possibilities.

 

Anita Owsianna

Anita Owsianna was born in 1991. She is a graduate of the University of Arts in Poznań. Currently she lives and works in Warsaw. Working on a composition is probably her favorite challenge. She is inspired by textures, contrasts and color possibilities. 

 

This series is a dream of carefree, freedom, independence and a return to nature. No heavy topics or pains. Calming down and resetting.

Uzzo Lino | Safe Place

As a Berlin-based artist Uzzo Lino focuses on creating Fine Art. She is fascinated by perceiving beauty in everyday situations and walks through life with eyes wide open. Her love for detail, humorous little oddities, and dark sensuality is clearly recognizable in her work.

 

Somewhere between space and time. 

Where thoughts and visions come as soft and silent as first the morning light. 

This is where we will concur.

Vibration in light

The Pearly absent

In the glow that caresses the moment

Tiziana Rasile holds a degree at the Academy of Fine Arts of Rome, specialising in Techniques of Museum Merchandising.

 

Her work searches for light through chromatic vibrations where the being appears in its ancestral essence. She believes in art that embraces infinite points of view. A brushstroke can be an electron that vibrates, a sound wave, a rhythm of light, water and air together. The time where life flows. Simplify the soul in search of the uncontaminated.

Mitra Tashakori | Legend of Motifs 

Mitra Tashakori was born in 1975 in a religious city in Iran. She holds a BA from the University of Arts in Tehran, and was a conservatory teacher for a long time. 

 

    “The beginning of this series started with an old book; an old book that I wanted to give another color and smell to; the color and smell of today’s material.

I would like to convey a message full of peace, friendship, reconciliation and peace to humanity and all the people of the world.  Whatever the writings in the book, there is a message of peace within them, even if our language is not common. The images are the common language of all human beings and the inner sense is transmitted through them.”
