|Peter Foti giclee artist (murumuru)||Hungary||Colorful Abstract Art Giclee Prints from Peter Foti||
Hello, my name is Peter.
I'm a visual artist creating mostly abstract giclee art prints with bold and clear colors and unusual blending modes.
You can also find my works if you type "murumuru" or "murumuruArt" in google, since I'm using this brand to popularize my art pieces.
Murumuru is something really about shapes and colors and to cheer up everybody who's looking at it.
Please visit my site on Etsy (http://murumuruart.etsy.com) or find me on facebook at www.facebook.com/murumuru.hu for more art and news about me.

You're very welcome to my world of colors!
i am benedict edet, a professional artist from akwa ibom state practising at abuja, nigeria. studied fine and applied arts at the university of nigeria, nsukka, between 1985 and 1990 graduating with a second class upper division and specializing in painting.
born on the 16th of october, 1964 at onike, yaba, in lagos, south west nigeria to mr, alphonsus thomas edet, who till his death in 1982, was a french teacher at the st. timothy,s college, iwaya, lagos, though also literate in greek and latin had settled at lagos with his then wife, anna, a trader at the popular tejuosho market, before the beginning of the biafran civil war in 1967.
while i attended the st. patrick,s catholic school, yaba, from 1970, i noticed i had developed a keen interest in drawing, i was making pencil sketches on my school notebooks with special inspiration from comic books like spider man, captain america, hulk, etc. i was also inspired by kenny adamson, a painter that lived in the neigbhourhood a few houses away. i would peep through his no. 7, majaro street studio and watched him paint for hours and then would collect left over squeezed paint tubes he threw away to work with and in 1979 i made my first painting,a portrait in acrylics.
after my father,s death in 1982, i left lagos to calabar, where i was admitted to continue my secondary school education at the hope waddell training institute.
during my years of study at the university of nigeria, nsukka, under professor obiora udechukwu and professor el anatsui, especially, i began to develop a personal style of painting that had underlying influences from broken or cracked wall tiles as i was fascinated by the geometrically sinuous nature of the lines created by the cracks.

I live in Marina, California, a mile from Monterey Bay and about 12 miles from downtown Monterey. Monterey was made famous by Salinas native John Steinbeck with his book, 'Cannery Row', among many others.
Within easy driving reach are the communities of Pacific Grove, Pebble Beach, Carmel-by-the-Sea, Carmel Valley, Salinas, Big Sur, Moss Landing, Santa Cruz, and Yosemite as well as most of Northern California.
Other subject-matter locations will include, Hawaii, New Zealand, Canada, Mexico, Guatemala, Great Britain, Ireland and possibly the Netherlands.
My work begins with my composing photographs while on location, bringing them into my computer and enriching, enhancing and/or manipulating the subject. I don't have one specific style but like to play with context, mood, shapes, and feeling. I know, these are all squishy-feely explanations. I just want my work to look good, be enjoyed by others, and to be showered with newly minted doubloons I can make into piles and jump into.
My professional credentials are equally impressive. I went to college in Northwestern Ohio, majored in Graphic Design with a degree in Fine Arts, which I didn't receive because I flunked Italian. I've painted in acrylics and oils, fabricated jewelry, constructed sculptures, built facades of Victorian Houses and other historic buildings using balsa and Elmer's Glue, been a production artist, designer, creative director, marketing director, business owner, and will make beer runs if everyone chips in. I was even a licensed street artist in the City of San Francisco. I used to freeze my ass off every weekend sitting down at the Embarcadero.

|Samara Doumnande||United States||Paintings and drawings of African American daily life|
Samara Doumnande (SamDoum) has studied at the prestigious Rhode Island School of Design as well as the Rochester Institute of Technology where she graduated with a Bachelor's of Fine Arts and a degree in Interior Design. She has just recently released a spoken word album as well as e-book both entitled "Bible Tales: The First Five Books in Rhyme (for children and adults)" and is also working on her first play, "A Tale of Antinara," which is soon to be released, in upcoming years.
Samara's subject matters are inspired by the late artists Mary Cassatt and Henry Tanner, as the themes of women with children, as well as African American daily life permeate her drawings and paintings.
Samara's favorite medium to work in is pastel as she loves to get her fingers dirty as she rubs her fingers across the paper, blending colors, forming lines and shapes, smudging and becoming one with the painting and/or drawing.
Samara's fine art work can be found at SamDoumArt.com
Samara lives in Rochester, New York with her husband and three children.

|Emily Cobb||United States||Emily Cobb: Dreaming Without Sound||
I can sum up my entire childhood with that one day after the rainstorm. We were making a movie about bandits, so we all had ripped-off pieces of our t-shirts tied in masks around our faces, and there was a backpack of rope, an enormous blond wig, and two bottles of ketchup-blood.
We all took off our shoes, waded up to the dam—it’s an old concrete slab embedded in the hill, crumbling and covered in vines, and it has been there so long the creek found its way around the dam—more like a castle and moat, really.
This was the day we found the doll with one glass periwinkle eye, but I remember it because of the moss. The ferns smelled like skunks and there were tiny red bugs, and in every direction was this toxic green glow, like a rich Peter Pan green on top of iridescent lime, like the moss had slurped up all that rain water and was breathing it out in an ethereal mist.
It’s visceral moments like these that continue to drive me from one adventure to the next, each fueling an internal demand to create. And as my stomping ground grows bigger and more limitless, I’m grounded by the internalized cycle of the New England seasons. Their pull is inescapable, and it guides me as if it were a pendulum between outward and inner discovery.

|Melody Starkweather||Canada||Custom portraits of family pets and people, hand-made with love by Melody Starkweather in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Detailed and professional drawings and paintings of all subjects.|
I have always made art, both independently and collaboratively. It's something I do. It's in my blood. And I have always been drawn to portraiture. It is such a rush, capturing the essence of a person, an animal, a place, a memory. That moment in which the character starts to shine through the paint, ink or pencil is not only gratifying, but it's exciting. They really come to life.
I grew up in the Ottawa Valley in a household literally full of pets: dogs, cats, lizards, birds, fish, hamsters, and even horses. So, I come by it naturally. I love my pets. And I probably love yours. This, coupled with a passion for creation and a raging sense of sentimentality lands me here, drawing and painting portraits of loved ones - animal and human. Like other pet-owners, I truly feel that pets are members of our families. They give us unconditional love and they improve our quality of life. I believe that they deserve to be commemorated through portraits the same way that people do. And let's face it: even if they don't deserve it, we love them anyway!
In 2006, I received an H.B.A. with a double major in Visual Studies (Studio Art) and Art History from the University of Toronto. I currently live and work in Toronto, Ontario, with my man and kitty and many fishes.
