Born in 1962, France.
His pictorial compositions are simply the results of his imagination without any cinematographic aids, using principally the oil canvas technique called "alla prima", keen to the original impressionist painters, which cancels the initial undercoated and glazed steps. Landscapes edge with the urban sea, and combine with portraitist gesture. He takes corners of Paris, cafe chairs piled up in the angle of view of a monument, or the dressing room of a theatre, and portrays them empty of all human presence.
An Arcelin painting can be a false realistic: it is figurative without becoming complex.
Born in 1952, Italy
Bonfanti places his human figures in the center of his compositions, alone and naked, often surrounded by darkness and faceless. His subjects are rendered standing, sitting, or crouching, but regardless in the spotlight and at the center of the artist's attention where they can be best seen and the fragile yet perfect matter from which man is made reflected upon. The body is presented as a gift, a knot which absorbs more and more the dense taciturn mixture of the surrounding space as it unravels.
Born in 1960, France
Larrieu's works combine joyful and enchanting superimposed and repetitive forms. He has created a distinctive language choreographed in multicolored mosaic-like oil paintings of exotic landscapes and cityscapes stippled with all sorts of magical figures, trees and birds which transports the viewer beyond the ordinary to a fantastical and imaginary world.
Born in 1951, England.
Povey takes an intimate and vulnerable approach to painting. For decades his paintings were psychological and darkly personal akin to the works of Stanley Spencer, however his recent paintings, are more invasively emotional. They are founded on extensive periods of writing and evolution and the building of small interior stage sets replete with models. These life-size dioramas are then built into a Cubist perspective and worked towards typically dim and sensual scenes in which his figures appear as sleepwalkers, in a reverent distraction around tea tables suggesting a contemporized Raphael.
Born in 1961, Belarus.
Alexej's painting is dynamic in its form and peaceful in its substance. His works are full of quietness and light, and their space are drenched in air. What is his alone, it is his maestria as a sketcher and an unquestionable talent as a painter, not so common in our time. His paintings' world is lost somewhere, but not forgotten, a world which comes true in the dreams.
Born in 1989, Italy.
Very early on, he displayed a strong predisposition for art. Grandson and son of artists, he followed in the footsteps of his grandfather Franco Scassellati, by strolling through the meanders of the ceramist laboratory, where he played with clay and colors, transforming them into works that revealed his precocious talent.
He is often compared, because of his amazing artistic ascension, to the Grand Masters of the past, having reached the summit of glory at a very young age.
