The Wonderful Neo Realism of Eduardo Naranjo

He was distinguished in 1991 as “Extremadura Hoy” and the Gold Medal of Extremadura, and in 1995 was awarded the Military Cross for his contribution to the Arts and the Army.
His work is disturbing and complex. The drawing is perfect, transcendent and illusory to contribute a special light and a colorful austere… It is a metaphorical realism, fantasy and imaginative work. TxT

Graziano Locatelli is an Italian artist working with mixed media and creating artworks from ready made materials like tiles.

I started assembling small tiles of aluminium that I cut from larger foils, I painted and put them together to produce works that would later represent the main structure of my current production. My early works are sharp and are often torn apart by heads and figures that try and break the wall and is still the subject of the breakage that bewitches me. 
After a few attempts at mixing cement, glue and tiles, I created a copious body of works that revolves around the theme of abandoned places. I wonder what meanings and feelings these (once) familiar places arouse in those who lived there. I see them as restless dreams, spaces in ruins inhabited by ghosts that still retain an embryonic life.

Poland-born, German artist Monika Grzymala describes her work as three dimensional drawings. She studied sculpture, shifted to drawing and found her place somewhere in between. Rolls of tape are her “pen” of choice and she allows them to dive and ripple in all directions via

Christina Mrozik is an artist from Michigan, USA. She has spent the majority of her life observing the natural world and the types of relationships that form within it. Having grown up on the Grand River in Michigan, she was inspired by it’s habitats at an early age. Blending the external world with her own understanding of the human condition has led to her distinct style, in which flora and fauna stand in, representing the simultaneous and often opposing matters of the human heart. 

She often draws with ink and marker on paper, adding bursts of color with watercolor and high pigmented acrylics. She views the art making process as one of portraiture, in which analyzing the drawing helps make sense of peoples’ histories and abilities. Currently based in Grand Rapids Michigan, she has shown both regionally and nationally.

Lorenzo Nanni born in Italy, is a 34 years old textile artist living and working in Paris. He specialized in embroidery.

 I use natural minerals and materials: felt, silks, cotton fabrics & threads, wools & fibers, glass and precious stones (Quartz, jade…). I use bones too, along with woods, metals and rhodoïds. It was spontaneous for me to choose these types of materials because my pieces are inspired by flora, fauna and anatomy. I have a lot of respect for nature and animals

On my production method, I always begin with a sketch. Then I move to pattern-construction, dying then assembling fibers and finally embroidery. The time of the process can vary from 10 days up to 9 months of work, depending on the objects. Some pieces require 100 hours of embroidering. They are all unique pieces.The use of fiber has never been lost; the textile has always accompanied the painting as a form of decorative art, and has undergone the changes of time and civilization; suffered the influence of shapes, volumes and materials.

A look inside the mind of Chinese painter Tato.

I am a 19 year old college student (20 in august) who has a major in sculpture and enjoys drawing and water-color painting in my free time. I really enjoy utilizing various lighting in my images, which is usually through ambient light and a very prominent light source. My most used programs lately  have been clip-studio paint, and photoshop. I am currently working on 2 projects, a comic and an illustrated story. If I’m not working on those, I’m usually drawing fanart!
