César Orrico is a young and stunning sculptor from Spain.

Definitive and direct materials in expressive language of Fine Arts “. In the current year he has won the First Prize FLECHAZO 2016, FLECHA Contemporary Art Fair. César experiences different kind of materials : artificial stone, bronze, iron, wood.
As he says: “The thematic axis of my work, finds in sculpture an instrument capable of materializing the sensuality in artistic expression through a personal interpretation of the anatomy. The profoundness that is generated around this detailed study, comes from a special interest in the anatomical proportions and representation of the human body in medical and artistic treaties of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. A fundamental knowledge for my creative process, which creates a conceptualization of the work supported by the reinterpretation of the classic canons in sculpture.
The pursuit of synthesis in the human body acts as a constant in my work, where the concept of beauty fold up over itself to give way to the inner impulse of form. In essence, my work produces a fusion of different materials that come together spontaneously in the figure, where the mix of coolness and warmth create the force of each sculpture “.
Dylan Scott Pierce, born in 1986, is american. He began watercolor at the early age of twelve but now is also an avid oil painter.
“Though we are oceans apart with cultural and lifestyle differences, at heart we share in common the very essence of what makes us who we are, in our humanity. We share the same internal workings of the heart; our hopes, wants, and desires, and fears, heartaches, and struggles.
These emotive paintings are a glimpse into the intimate thoughts of the heart where the true person is seen. As we connect through shared feelings that resonate in our own souls, all barriers are crossed.
With each of these paintings I think of the old zulu greeting, Sawubona, meaning “I see you, I see your humanity, I see your personality, I see your dignity.” http://www.dylanpierce.com
Serena Vignolini is a young artist living and working in Tuscany. After studying materials for different years, like pastel, watercolor, acrylic, gouache and ink, she has focused her attention on oil painting. Oil painting finds its origins in great painters of the past but it is a stunning way of interpreting modern times, going beyond the pure image description. That’s the way Serena Vignolini’s artworks take shape. There are no projects but it’s always human figure the main theme, between defined and improvised .
