The award winning works were exhibitioned across the country in various galleries. Her works were additionally listed at the Turkish Sports Agency competition called Olympics and were exhibited at the event ‘Olimpiyat Evi’.

Furthermore, She has also had painting lessons, in mosaic and wall picture, from one of Turkey’s greatest artists, Devabil Kara. She has also attended workshops and lessons from two very important contemporary artists, Metin Sahinoglu and Kemal Gurbuz. As well as participating in exhibitions, she was worked as an arts teacher for a period of time. Greatest influences of her work come from the renowned explorer and scientist Piri Reis, as well as the great explorer Christopher Columbus.

Born in 1973, Istanbul; Halime has moved to London as a new destination in order to pursue her passion. She continues to attend exhibitions with drawings, mosaics and wall paintings in London. In order to combine different perspectives and techniques she attended the workshops, on colour pallets, at the Princes Foundation and she has attended to perspective and drawing workshops at the University of the Arts London Central Saint Martins. Her recent travels have had significant influence of her later works.

The artist, who currently lives and works in London, has recently been awarded the Talent of the Future Award for her two paintings that were exhibited at the Qube Open Art Show.

AJ SEKI

Aj Seki interpret the arts as “”When creating an abstract piece I decide a colour scheme first and work from there. I use a variety of acrylics and also a variety of pallet knives and old gift cards. I wait till each colour dries before continuing onto the next. An abstract piece should show direction but it cannot be forced. I like to work with linear abstraction as it shows movement and directs the viewers eyes in a slightly controlled way, but allows for the viewer to create their own path around the piece. Every time I look at “Steel City Lights” I see something new, like a formation of lines of colour that I previously haven’t seen.”

GINA LOVE

Gina Love’s painting practice can be aligned to intense creative compulsion and cognitive abstract expression. Complex thought patterns and memories are replicated in the interaction of colours, brushstrokes, layers of paint and contrasting heavy textures within the pieces. This in turn acts as therapy and allows her to bypass verbal communication when her anxiety is high.  As well as paintbrushes, she uses objects to create dense textures in the paint. Painting is Gina’s key means of expression, and brushstrokes happen dramatically, instinctively and quickly. She often works on more than one piece simultaneously and in triptychs to encourage the intuitive aesthetic developments.

JONATHAN REDMAYNE

Jonathan Redmayne’s an all over approach is applied with impeccable attention to detail. The centre is just asimportant as the edge and sides with vivid fluid colours and striking lines fight for survival creating a visual aesthetic that emotionally confronts the viewer. His body of work to date challenges the global consumerist culture. He only works with 100% recycled domestic acrylics from sustainable sources such as mis-tints and paint left out for local authority collections. Jonathan’s current post graffiti work is typified by vibrant colours layered with bold brutal lines forming fine liquid textures that cut and divide across the image leaving a trail reminiscent of beautiful decay.

LINA KOBEISI

Lina Kobeissi tell about her art as fallows:I have always been fascinated by texture and structure. While studying Interior Architecture, I had the chance to explore that passion even further in my paintings. I rarely use brushes and try to create a grid like structure through layers within my paintings; fusing together my architectural and artistic background. I used to watch my aunt (mentor and artist) create the most unique work of art in the most unconventional ways and since then I haven’t stopped experimenting myself.”

 

OWEN MUNISAMY

Owen Munisamy, From a family of professional musicians, he was naturally inspired by sound but also by biomorphism and surrealism. He was attracted by the mechanisms of wind instruments. As Giorgio de Chirico said, “In spite of a dream being a strange phenomenon and an inexplicable mystery, even more inexplicable is the mystery that our thoughts confer on certain objects and aspects of life.” Francis Bacon compared the images in his head to an uncontrollable dream. This is exactly what Owen Munisamy unconsciously paints: inanimate musical instruments, which he transforms into living biomorphic forms in an enigmatic world. A musical world, which invites the spectator to enter. The ensemble of lines and irregular shapes could describe Owen Munisamy’s work described, as metaphysical where curve and abstraction are omnipresent. The artistic world of Owen Munisamy certainly appears complex but it is above all a mirror of his thought translated by his assured talent.

SONIA KNOCH

Sonja Knoch concerns with sepciaaly patterns and paint fascinating abstract artworks. Focusing on colour and symmetry working in acrylic, ink & watercolour.  Her influences are the works of, Joe Roberts Jr & the psychedelic art movement of the late 60’s and literary work of Antonin Artaud in,” Voyage to the land of Tarahumara “.

Alice Sheppard Fidler

Alice works in both acrylic and oil, on wood and on canvas.

Her still life paintings often combine objects she has collected over the years with elements from the natural world. She is passionate about colour, the play of light and shade, and of texture, enjoying the simple act of a loaded brush against a surface. For her the act of paintingis a form a meditation.

 

At art college Alice studied textile design having always been interested in art and art history in early years. The philosophy of the textile course was to design from the direct experience of painting using the still life often as a starting point.

During her childhood and student years Alice spent a lot of time in France enjoying galleries, museums and antique markets, collecting objects from an early age.

Her degree led to a career as a designer and painter for interiors, specialising in paint finishes and large scale murals.This in turn led to a career as a set designerfor television, film and fashion magazines.Alice continues to create sets for renouned fashion photographers, and paints in her studio in the Cotwolds.

 

As well as still life, Alice paints landscapes inspired by the countryside around her, and is also producing more abstract works.

 

TAIJASI MISHRA

Having been drawn towards the creative world of art ever since I could hold a crayon and having achieved many milestones along my artistic journey including a solo exhibition titled “She walks in beauty” displaying 53 of my paintings, I am presently pursuing my passion as a third year BA (Fine Arts) student at Goldsmiths College, University of London.

 

I have a good understanding of perspective and believe in the right of every individual to have an opinion. This gives me not only the ability to view every object, incident and person purely from the individual’s point of view but also the wisdom and the patience to understand that every individual is different and therefore sees things as per his or her perspective. Art is my medium for crystallising my feelings and releasing my emotions while simultaneously capturing the moment and thought.

 

I welcome any opportunity to associate myself with art, in any capacity, as an artist, an exhibitor, a curator or even just exist in the same space as works of art in order to further expand my creative horizons.

ALEFIYAH RAJA

Alefiyah Raja interprets her art as fallow: Having always been fascinated by art and being drawn to colour, textures, different shapes and movement, I’ve emerged as a self taught Resin Artiste.

I’m drawn to the world of abstract art where there are no rights and wrongs. I like to let my expressions flow like the medium I paint with. I’ve realised that painting with resin can be very addictive and therapeutic. Fluid art, though being a difficult medium to control is very forgiving as it teaches us to let go.Having said that, I must add that I’ve always been very interested in painting and now with the kids all grown up plus the time and inclination on my hands, I have rediscovered my passion for painting.

AMELIA MARTHA MATERA

Amelia Martha Matera tells about her art:I found the way to express myself through painting. Colours, canvas, brushes and my hands are my instruments. I try to immortalize my feelings and my moods on canvas, this is why you can find different technics and different subjects in my paintings, starting from masklike faces ending up with simply abstract lines. The colour I use are fully inspierated from the wild nature of South Italy where I grow up.”

CARLO GIUSEPPE PROIETTO

Carlo Proietto’s sharp, fluid compositions feature dazzling choreographies of lines and form, bounding movements between layers of figuration, text and abstraction. This effect is only made bolder by his choice of media. The Italian artist has written extensively on pyrography, a practice whose sharp strokes and clean shapes may evoke woodblock printing, drawing and even oil paints, but whose process is far more intriguing and volatile. Proietto composes each line by applying a heated element to his surface, manipulating burn marks and temperatures to mould their tint, thickness and movement. This lends figurative elements made of bold, thick marks an illustration-like quality, whereas abstract geometric patterns call to mind prints and etchings.

Proietto, a passionate advocate of pyrography’s major artistic merits, makes his best arguments for the medium in his work, which abounds in infinitely sensitive modulations of tone and line, closely packed complex elements alongside gracefully molten movements. His subjects meld portraiture and exhaustingly rendered pop culture imagery with fragments of text and networks of abstract geometry that could represent the indecipherable hieroglyphs of some lost fire tribe . He combines familiar symbols and characters with confrontational portraits and highly personal grid-like forms for a total effect that never overwhelms with its bold, clean lines, but maintains a surprising, combustible
