Inside the City

Acrylic paints digitally enhanced with Photoshop
Sarah Ghanooni—Seattle, Washington

From an early age, I would look through the art books and be captivated by the colors and movement within the pictures. Monet, Van Gogh, and Picasso were artists who inspired me and influenced my impressionistic style. I work with a variety of materials, but mainly I use my photography by putting it to canvas and incorporating acrylic paints to bring the photos to life. I take inspiration from traveling and discovering colors, nature, dance, architecture, and music within every place I explore. With everything I do, I have always been drawn to bold colors and bright lights, which is evident within my work. Through the brushstrokes of paint, I can express what I cannot always say.

Bridge Leading Home

Oil on linen
Richard Chandler—New York, New York

I'm powerfully drawn to both the art of cityscape and that of landscape. While my paintings remain rooted in literal reality, they also reveal unseen forces that are continuously exerting themselves against the fixed boundaries of observed forms. Buildings undulate, skies and sidewalks are wildly dappled, and perspectives seem to head toward some extraordinary other-worldly denouement. Yet it all holds together in good order. Normal business is transacted without fuss or anxiety. The rhythms of nature continue to unfold in their timeless cycle. Figures, in fact, are not the least bit exercised by the cosmic forces electrifying their environments. A key message here: there is a relentless urgency to life, whether or not one feels it. For a moment, the veil is parted, and the hidden vibrancy animating the world is revealed.

Traditional and digital painting (Gouache and charcoal on paper + graphic tablet and optical pen on Photoshop)
Xavier Divoux-Cailleres—Paris, France

The human eye perceives the surrounding world by processing a matrix of colors and shapes. However, all may not be what it seems at first sight. I use this in a modern approach combining traditional and digital painting to allow my work to be viewed from both near and far, the subject appearing from or disappearing into the abstract.

“From macro to micro, we are all the same, all different.”

"Every step on the Earth felt like a step off it, closer to Mars, or something fantastic..."

The artwork is a part of a series dedicated to a few prestigious U.S. parks, based on the emotion that each place evokes. Souvenirs and photographs may remind the viewer of the beauty, but I want to transport the viewer to the magical journey that one experiences in these captivating places.

Cutting Washi (traditional Japanese paper), acrylic paint, watercolor paint, pastel, canvas
Yasuka Fukuoka—Fukuoka, Japan

I am the artist who draws with my soul and five senses without being bound by common sense. The world of my artwork is "輪廻転生 / samsara" which is reincarnation around the lives of living things. The main artwork is paintings, video animations, installation works, and picture book creation. While I am creating, I wish that the power of expression and art will change the world and spread smiles in the world.
