FEATURED ARTISTS

ZHOU ZHIWEI

Zhou Zhiwei plays with imagination in an inspiration without time, poetically filtered in a dimension where time runs fast and dematerialises reality.

Music, nature, light, colour and the figure (the human body as a measure to relate with space, things, memory, people) these are the elements Zhou Zhiwei likes using to build his bridge among cultures in his constant need to move at his pleasure from the Eastern world to the Western one.

STEFANO PULEO

Painter of glaring dream derivation. Only in appearance, in the center of the Sicilian artist’s interests there is a constant portrayal of the man, the woman, and the interpersonal silences, where the riddle of an existential condition lives.

He also addresses the nature and the landscape through a visionary force that distances him from reality and brings him closer to the fairy tale. The beauty of harmonious signs, tone and against vibrant tones make further arcane his poetic message.

Stefano Puleo is a master of silence and illusory, without giving up, with this, to make a sweet gift to the people and to his land.

ADOLF VALLAZZA

Vallazza can express with new modalities the sentiment for Nature, the peace of mind, the solitary and contemplative detachment, which is not misled by false appearances. His nowadays sculptures are the poetic conclusion of a series of negations that have moved him away from the figurative mannerism of craft origins.

Adolf has slowly found himself in the images of a forgotten and lost world, which has secretly survived in his subconscious, waiting to be born again in the most mysterious and fascinating aspects of his sculptures, set free from the incrustations of a timeless moment.

His truth is a conquer, due to a spiritual experience, humbly inspired by the love for wood sculpture, and humbly carried out in the solitude of a mountain village, as if nowadays world was just a science-fiction foolish invention.

AFSHIN NAGHOUNI

 

“My paintings and in a way even my nudes reflect and question the social-political landscape of our world. I thrive on impregnating the viewer’s mind and understanding to go ahead and try connecting with the work through experiencing aesthetic qualities beyond the apparent naked form, or to continually reminding them that there is a darker more sinister concept embedded within images which at first glance seem harmless, aesthetically pleasing and even beautiful. To challenge them to discern how deeply into the work they would care to travel.”
