|Damian Osborne Fine Artist||South Africa||www.damianosborne.com|
Painting and drawing began from an early age. If I wasn't eating my crayons, then I was indefatigably drawing on absolutely everything: my dinky cars, the walls and the furniture.
Perfectionism became an early trait as my mother tried to restrain my wild artistic expressionism by teaching me to draw within the lines of my colouring books. I was always fascinated with controlled and realistic art therefore.
For some reason, as a child, I could spend hours of my time absorbed in drawing and copying birds. Perhaps it was their 'otherworldliness' that fascinated me, their details, or just the sheer number of species that I was discovering. I've always been entranced by animals and plants and the beauty of natural landscapes.
I love the versatility of oil paints; the thick buttery oiliness and the thin, controlled glazes that can be achieved. There is something also so seductive about interesting colour juxtapositions and 'lost and found' lines gleaned from impressionistic influences.
The textural and tonal subtleties and power of monochromatic charcoal drawings completely mystifies and pleasures me. Basic tools like a pen or piece of charcoal fascinate me because here the artist has no safety net, and their personality is as readable in a few simple lines and shadowing as his/her handwriting.

|JOSE LUIS QUINONES||United States||Take a quick tour of Jose Luis Quinones exciting website!|
Jose Luis Quinones is an American artist creating oil paintings on canvas that are shaped to the objects only. He eliminates the background to produce a unique style of his own. Quinones is a Photo Realist that blends the Pop Art style and fuses it together to generate a dynamic two dimensional surface into a three dimensional illusion.
Jose Luis Quinones was born in Yauco, Puerto Rico in 1949. Quinones attended Cooper School of Art and The Cleveland Institute of Art, Cleveland, Ohio. He has been exhibiting his art for over forty years in many locations throughout the United States and also abroad. Quinones’ paintings were originally based on a series of objects from his father’s small grocery store.
Like Rosenquist, Quinones had painted mural size billboards for an outdoor media company for many years. Constantly painting on such a large scale had influenced the size of his artwork which he found was an important factor on the impact to the viewer. Quinones made realistic paintings developing the contour of the object with canvas over an unusually designed wood construction. Through the years he tried a variety of ideas to see if he could capture the object and give the audience a unique experience on a very large scale. Quinones found that everyday items were in need of a closer look and has been painting his shaped realistic artwork professionally ever since.

|Karan Mladen||Italy||Mladen Karan is a serbian painter arrived in Tuscany, and in his work the earth and the sky of these places are the object of contemplation transfiguring. Karan reads the nature to learn to master the material.|
He was born on 1951 in Velika Žuljevica, which belong to Novi Grad's municipality (ex.Bosanski Novi).
He finished high school in Novi Grad. From 1970 to 1973 he was studding philosophy and sociology on Zagreb 's university. After short stay in Milano he started to study painting on Academy of visual arts in Zagreb on 1997, where graduated in class of professor Vasilije Jordan on 1982.
The modern human resides in the essential shape of a man, and painter Karan, not hiding his feeling towards the world he lives in, does not hide nowadays’ belittled compassion, and that is why he contests with the history which ails him. And he contests at a place where history gathers its burden and its power, tragic and triumph, but also indifference.
The capability to feel and create the universal out of local, took him in a labyrinth in which the matters and moods can be sought.
Since he specifically named the paintings, he sets them up in an exceptionally utilized contest. The irony and criticism, even the condemnation that he appended to them, are the artist’s utterance which he condemns. Staying totally in the domain of visual arts, his outcry, condemnation, and warning, do not transform to a political leaflet.
The place, time and people are the three coordinates which define the artistic happening, and so Karan – by choosing Prijedor and not, let’s say, Milan, as a place where he presents his Labyrinth – undoubtedly grinds the blade of his critical stance. The Labyrinth in which the Minotaur already created a “jumble” and left him is a territory where the painter literally situates his work, and then – invites the audience to join him and recognize the evil which surrounds us all. More precisely, in which we reside even if we are not there where Karan located the Labyrinth.

|Heather Lee Grieb||United States||Lucky H ARt||
Those special people who have been privileged to feel the magic of being friends with a horse will understand that you want to carry that mystical feeling with you at all times. Non-horse people don’t
understand why our homes and even cars are decorated with the image of the horse. For most, it’s simple we want to be reminded of that horse magic at all times.
As an artist, Heather is obsessed with painting horses. It started
with painting her quarter horse on her purse because, she wanted to keep him next to her even in normal every day life. Then painting a jacket for a friend as a gift...
This was the beginning of Lucky H Art. Lucky because any girl is
extremely lucky if she has a horse. H due to that’s what many call her. Since then, Heather has painted and sold over 200 purses, wallets, jackets, wall art, boots and other leather goods.
Heather’s artist career true highlight was having a custom order
canvas at the supreme court offices and then having the client create her Christmas cards with the image of the canvas. Lucky H Art creations have been sent as far as Israel and carried in a boutique in Canada.
Each piece is one of a kind art work and can never be duplicated (even by the artist). Heather uses specially designed paints for painting on leather and special leather sealers to ensure each art piece stands up to a cowgirls life.
