Original Graphite work by Adrienne Simms
Adrienne Simms grew up in New York City, and moved as a teenager to San Francisco, where she currently resides. Inspired by history, horror movies and her dreams, she seeks to create a world that is her own. The female form is invariably the starting point of her imagery, the face and hands specifically are the means of expression. She enjoys exploring the tension between the macabre and the humorous. Adrienne Simms lives and works in San Francisco, CA.
Original Ink work by Mila Sketch
Mila sees and shows a whole through the fine details. She uses subliminal manner of drawing and do not know where to lead her own hand. Mila Sketch was born in Russian extreme northwest port city Murmansk on the border with Norway and Finland, in 1985, and now lives and creates in Austin, TX. Described by her parents and teachers as a prodigy child, she developed a love for drawing at a very early age. Mila had her first art award at the age of nine. Her painting “Camping in the Ice” won the young talent contest and was exposed in Murmansk Regional Museum. In 1991 Mila’s family moved to Voronezh, city in the center of Russia where she successfully completed a course of study in Voronezh Art School. Art school gave precious gifts: time, tools and resources to actually create art. Mila had multiple opportunities to experiment with different media projects, learn many art techniques and develop important relationships with teachers who became mentors. She begun to work at the animation studio. Mila quickly became a full time digital artist where she worked on advertisement, 3D movies and computer games production. Same time she was a journalism student at Voronezh State University. As her career progressed, she felt the strong need to dedicate all her professional and creative time to graphic paintings. Milla‚Äôs artworks have now been exhibited worldwide since 2002.
Prints by Larissa Kulik
Larissa’s focus is in computer graphics she strives to continually develop in this direction. Her art is a mixture of photography and painting in Photoshop using the tablet. There are a lot of different mechanisms and audiences often ask what it means. She tries to show the relationship of all that surrounds us, because there are no coincidences in this world. If she uses a rope it is merly a metaphor for telling stories and connecting them into a single plot. Any seeming randomness is an unexplored regularity. The world is much more complicated than people can comprehend, and much easier than what one creates in their own mind. Sometimes all the clues are staring us straight in the face. Her work is the result of fantasy, but not with synthetic plot. Larissa lives and works in Pskov, Russia.
