Natália Gromicho - the exhibition 'Wondering If' of the latest artworks.

Natália Gromicho was born in Lisbon, Portugal. At the Faculdade de Belas Artes de Lisboa, she studied painting and went on to graduate from Intensive Painting at the private ArCo School of Art in Lisbon. As an Expressionist artist, Gromicho’s work is often concerned with perception and reality. Her canvases are as energetic as the Lisbon streets with desiccating slogans and sunset red riots, and it is easy to see the personal influence of this bright chaotic city. Painted lines scrawl over deserted pastel buildings, the ubiquitous graffiti contrasting with the multiple layers.

The recurring image of a headless and armless female mannequin verges on the surreal, and within this metaphysical framework Gromicho paints with an anything-might-happen wildness. Her paintings are slowly piecing together a philosophical mosaic- and with more and more in demand, her unique vision only gets clearer. Having participated in more than 70 solo and group exhibitions, the artist has already represented her country in Italy, Brazil, Miami and Australia. Her works are now in several private and institutional collections worldwide.

Mine Zabci - the exhibition 'Only You Can' of the latest paintings by the gallery new artist.

"Images possess a power that doesn’t need words, a magical energy that touches the soul, feeding the hunger and curiosity of human nature.” - Mine Zabci

Abstract Expressionist: Based in the UK, contemporary  artist Mine Zabci is renowned for her abstract expressionist work, exhibiting both in the UK and abroad. A graduate of Fine Art, Mine describes herself as a spontaneous artist. Spontaneity is critical to the artist’s work. She does not sketch beforehand or have a preconceived idea of what she will create fast  preferring to let inspiration take over and guide her hand. Using a variety of techniques and mediums including hand paints, pallet knives and clothe, Mine believes in the freedom of artistic expression that cannot be restricted to particular techniques, timescales, plans or styles. She believes that images without words fulfil the desire of “human nature to create its own mysteries when exploring the unknown, the unseen and the unspoken."

Gamal Meleka - the exhibition 'History’s Traces' of the latest artworks by the artist.

Gamal Meleka, born in Cairo, is based in Milan. His extensive studies at Accademia di Belle Arti di Brera and his unique talent have allowed him to become one of the most acclaimed artist in contemporary art in Italy, Egypt and several countries in Europe and Middle Est.

The encounter of the two inspiring cities strengthened into a powerful and sensitive artistic philosophy that pervades his canvas collections, performing amazing images.

It lies in Meleka’s ability to play his harmonious melody to the rhythm of his traits. His straight and rugged lines conflict with his tender lines that appear from behind the sudden hissing and the bold scratches of his spatula.

He fulfilled the goal of creating a contemporary icon permeated by the questions of modern human being together with the development of modern figurative art. The Sphynx epic, guardian of civilization, thrives among contemporary complexity, keeping alive the roots of humanity and inspiring the performance virtuosity of Meleka.

Claudie Bastide - the exhibition "The Force Of The Gesture" of the latest artworks.

Claudie Bastide, is an international artist having lived in a number of cities including Paris, Brussels and Mexico where she ran a fashion-design studio. Back in Paris she spent 10 years collaborating with a French fashion icon-Pierre Cardin. She fell in love with the arts, and had her first solo exhibition of characters made out of chairs back in 1996.

Claudie enjoys using brushes and colours to express the very and unspeakable depth of her feelings. She expresses herself in an abstract, geometrical way, looking for harmony of shapes and colours. Claudie is particularly fond of oil painting for its exhilarating scents and vibrant colours, so much so that, she would happily cover herself in the stuff! Claudie also recently got into digital photography manipulation, and is without a shadow of a doubt an all round artist!

Claudie has received several honour prizes for her works and has exhibited in many cities including Paris, Geneva, Berlin, Barcelona. Many of her sculptures and paintings are in private collections. Claudie currently lives and works near Montpellier, France.

Jamie McCartney - the latest artworks.

Jamie McCartney is an English sculptor, trained at Hartford Art School, USA, where he graduated in 1991. An artist hard to define. “I blame my degree in Experimental Studio Art... I’m still experimenting”. He admits to being a sculptor but shuns any closer definition. “I make things”. This mock belies a strong character with a definite je ne sais quoi... A maverick, a self-confessed enfant terrible and what he makes is causing a stir.

McCartney began his career running his own forge, making abstract animal sculptures in steel. He subsequently moved into sculpture, prop making and special effects in the film industry. Jamie worked on films such as Blackhawk Down, Charlotte Gray, Around the World in 80 Days, The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy and Casino Royale.

Ashkal - the exhibition 'The Death Of Cleopatra' of the artist's latest artworks.

'My depiction of the series " The Death of Cleopatra " an event that occurred on August, 30 BC, in Alexandria is based on surrealism.
As an artist, I work hard and that hard work includes my study, research, and efforts to develop paintings that speak both to me and to others and what inspires me to portray The Death of Cleopatra which has been depicted in various works of art throughout history is the narrative itself and the way Old Masters portrayed it.
Cleopatra was the most beautiful woman of her era but she regardless of her looks was certainly a formidable leader—and one of the most powerful members of a Greek dynasty that dominated Egypt for more than three centuries.
As the Queen of Egypt faced with the prospect of losing her kingdom, she killed herself by allowing an asp (Egyptian cobra) to bite her.
I was very much inspired by this famous subject matter that I decided to represent a historical event in my manner.'
