Fragments of a City (in raw state)Fragments of a City (in raw state) by Yiannis Ioakimidis
Σημεία της πόλης , κι όχι μόνο, όπου φωλιάζει το παράλογο, το αυθόρμητο και το ανθρώπινο απο τον Γιάννη Ιωακειμίδη. Γιάννης Ιωακειμίδης, Ντόπιος τριών πόλεων. Ανασαίνει μέσα σε διαδρόμους βιβλιοπωλείων και στα στενά των πόλεων. Λατρεύει τόσο πολύ την φωτογραφία και την ροκ που η κοπέλα του αναγκάστηκε να μάθει κι απ τα δύο.
Συμπολιτεία ΟλυμπίαςΣυμπολιτεία Ολυμπίας by Thanos Kalamidas
Η Συμπολιτεία Ολυμπίας (Federation of Olympia) είναι ένας Μη Κυβερνητικός Οργανισμός που ιδρύθηκε το 2014. Σκοπό έχει τη διάδοση του Ολυμπιακού Ιδεώδους, όπως διαμορφώθηκε κατά τους Αρχαίους Ολυμπιακούς Αγώνες, και την υλοποίηση έργων και δράσεων που έχουν σχέση με την ανάδειξη της γης που γέννησε τους Ολυμπιακούς Αγώνες και προβολή της Εκεχειρίας ως προαπαιτούμενο.
Works of Virginia Maria Romero Works of Virginia Maria Romero by Virginia Maria Romero
Virginia Maria Romero is a visionary artist with works in public, and museum permanent collections, as well as numerous private collections throughout the United States and abroad. Romero’s biographical artist profile is included on the New Mexico Office of the State Historian website: www.newmexicohistory.org; and in 2013 Romero was recognized as a distinguished Artist and Poet by the American Council for Polish Culture. The style, color, and compositions of Romero’s acrylics as well as her pigmented wood panels (retablos) and sculpture continue to exhibit her uniqueness and creative quality. Romero is one of a handful of “Anglos” to be counted among the santero artists of the American Southwest with works inspired by the culture of New Mexico and her Polish/Irish heritage that are just as strongly driven by her own experiences, setting her works apart from others. In reference it has been said that, “Romero has taken an ancient art form and redefined it, reinvented it, and made it her own.” “Virginia Maria Romero’s art speaks a language unlike any other…it is a language of the heart, of the soul, of life...”

stream of consciousnessstream of consciousness by Dr. Emine Koseoglu
Can “stream of consciousness” be borrowed from literature and be adapted to drawing? To get the answer, pick up a song and start a quick sketching session. Both by concentrating on paper and leaving your hand free at the same time! Trying not to think anything or to think anything except from what you are drawing!This is what I do.
Family Portraits by Richard Stanford
One day, or night, someone in each of these farmhouses sealed the windows, closed the curtains, looked around the empty rooms, stepped out the front door and locked it shut.   They turned and walked away, leaving behind the laughter of ghosts and the memories of birthdays, funerals, Easters and Christmases.Their reasons for leaving may have been dramatic or mundane – maybe nothing more than moving down the road to a more modern farmhouse.  It may also have been bankruptcy or death.  Whatever their reasons were, the home they left behind is a frozen moment in the life of that family – a portrait of the moment of departure.Unlike abandoned homes in the city that quickly become victims of the wrecking-ball, farmhouses are left as a testament to the endurance, labours, and memories of the families who worked the land.  Not only have the homes been left to stand but in some cases someone returns regularly to mow the lawn.  This seems to be not only an attempt to ward off Nature’s advances but also as a sign of respect.  They thus become both an abandoned farmhouse and a monument. Whether they are out in the middle of a field or aside a highway that was not meant to be or at the end of a dirt road or surrounded by woodlot, silent and alone, they are now and forever human constructions abandoned to the indifference of Nature.

H. Helmy GalleryH. Helmy Gallery by H. Helmy
H. Helmy began painting when his niece and nephew asked him how a graphic he had designed on the computer would look on canvas. He bought art supplies, started painting, and hasn’t looked back. His love of nature serves as the source of his inspiration. His works are stories with excitement and surprise with the titles adding extra dimension. His work has been at the M.O.T.H. Gallery of Fine Arts in Ontario, and the Grand Forks Art Gallery, British Columbia, and has been auctioned for the benefit of the Make A Wish Foundation of Eastern Ontario and WPBS-TV. Mr. Helmy is an artist living in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.
ExistencesExistences by Dr. Emine Koseoglu
Emine Koseoglu is an architect and academician whose research areas are environmental psychology, spatial legibility and perception. She takes photographs that force borders of perception.   She, behind the camera, started to see the world as blurry and as formed by stains nearly one and a half year ago; just as the way when she takes her glasses off! Thinking that the world actually is not as clear as in the “perfect photographs”.

Catia Coias returnsCatia Coias returns by Cátia Cóias
Sheep with different colours (but all sheep), a gag ("don't do this, don't do that") limiting our freedom, a body which is a home and a home which is an abandoned body, other bodies suspended, jumping or falling over vertical grounds, a dune slide ("they ride you inside") and uncategorized objects (ufo's are so often a good metaphor for the strange, the unique, the foreign and the new).

Architectonic structuresArchitectonic structures by Edyson Dos Santos
Architectonic structures with light studies, vintage landscapes with organic silhouettes, warm colours and sepias. These photos were taken in Romania, The Netherlands, Portugal and Nigeria. Edyson dos Santos is a Venezuelan-born citizen of the world in his early thirties. He loves to travel, experiencing unique cultures, caring for and learning with them, but above all helping to improve the lives and practical conditions of the people he meets on his way.He is the man responsible for www.weekeego.net, its original combination of sustainable and responsible travel services with community-engaging activities through agreements with local partners, natural conservation, development projects and strategic planning. The idea for these services came up on a beach of Mozambique, while two good friends travelled together and noticed how separated from the true colours of the place and affections of the local people the tourists staying all the time inside a private club resort were.Introduction by Alexandra Pereira

Multifunction ApparatusMultifunction Apparatus by Ana Fradique
Multifunction Apparatus is an object-performance/urban intervention/mobile installation created by the artist Ana Fradique and displayed lately on the streets of the city of Helsinki. The Apparatus is an object with many different functions: lightning bolts and snow protector, hiding place, camouflage, rain coat, skirt, stool, bowl of the giant, tent, egg shell, parabolic antenna, lotus, parachute, shell of Venus, sitting cloud, umbrella, water lily, Las Meninas dress, megaphone, gramophone, and a few more...Actually, I like it because it is a dynamic-interactive object; it acquires different significances/more functions according to the imagination and wishes of the viewer-user. Walking almost flat on the floor of Aleksanterinkatu or as a flamboyant dress she got inside the tram with, it looks original. She is always inside and often hiding, contemplating or walking/moving, so if you see her around tell her hello for me. In a way it made me recall Yoko's bags, but with a different support structure, many functions, and a different concept behind it. She looks like a walking snow flake, a cloud, a lotus, a fried egg with no yolk, a bellflower, a white UFO and whatever else I can imagine.Sitting inside her shell in front of the busy Stockmann's main door, under the iconic clock which is a meeting point for dozens of people every day and represents the vibrating pulse of the entire city, Ana watches the people running busy to their meetings and states that Apparatus is a place for a time without hours. Talking about a picture where a policeman looks astonished while she walks on the pedestrian cross, Ana explains why she went out to the street: "The idea was to commit the crime of occupying too much space. It looks like such situation in not contemplated in the codes here". I found the idea funny and original. And she was not jailed.Ana studied Painting in Lisbon's Fine Arts Academy and is now in Helsinki working on her Masters degree. She is very talented and multitasked, as she works as well in painting or performances as she does with groundbreaking jewellery, for example.I met Ana some years ago during a reunion of Portuguese Young Creators, most of the people present back then, during that Summer, kept in touch ever since - Ana is in Helsinki, Catia Coias is now in Lisbon and once in a while in London developing her photography projects and arts platform, Joana Bértolo went to Berlin, then came back to Lisbon and is now off having a great time, developing a very interesting arts web platform related with design and social awareness, working with an Argentinean books-cardboard atelier and doing her PhD in Buenos Aires.David C. is still around Lisbon playing his guitar and stopping for some periods in Brazil, Filipa has been travelling around to Austria, etc. and building her career as a writer and journalist very steadily, Eduardo went to Heidelberg, wrote books and screenplays, studied the German Theatre masters and has permanent plans to travel more, from Zanzibar to Mali to Mexico to Asia (last time I knew something, he wanted to cross Africa by train), David S. went to Edinburgh, Chile and Hawaii just to watch the stars in the sky.Jorge became a director, screenplay writer and, as he says when introducing himself, a "freelancer of life", Manuel became a maestro and is studying composition in Leipzig, Isabelle moved again to her home-city/dream-city Paris to work on her MPhil in Visual and Digital Arts, Andreia is boosting her comics, Victor is having tremendous success with his choreographies and dance shows both here and abroad, collaborating with dancers all around the world, the last time I knew about Cátia S. she was taking photos in Switzerland and having dinner in Barcelona, David P. went to London for his design MPhil and Inês is now auditioning dancers for her new Summer dance show. I miss them all very much, and it's always a pleasure to see-share new work or spends time with them.Introduction by Alexandra Pereira
Lhasa (on the way to)Lhasa (on the way to) by Cátia Cóias
Inner enemies and monsters inside navels, cowboys, enlightenment, infinite sky, spirituality, limitless vision, wind, questions, a Spanish bride inspiring revolution, killing shadows, what is destiny?, the wait for the key/solution (it will never come), the red shoes' lady, a silence work and shouts that come through. An artist's heart which is not for sale. It is Catia Coias' body of work talking again.

Open letter to SantaOpen letter to Santa by Alexandra Pereira
We have just been enjoying an early Christmas snow during this last week. We hope that's a sign that we're on Santa's route without any doubt, and we send some very recent pictures [a courtesy of the Nevao2008 Blog] so that you can show them to him and remember ...our beaches. You can see some people biking, landscapes, houses (once again, we hope you'll recognize them from the sky on Christmas Eve) and the wild horses walking and shivering a bit. They can find their way out there quite well, maybe Santa will consider their help to pull the sledge once he gets here (he doesn't happen to eat horses, does he?)."

Air, water, rocks/earth and the ball of fire of the sun, they all are present, as well as man-made structures which allow the real or metaphorical transformation of one element into another and put in evidence their deep interconnection.

Mari HokkanenMari Hokkanen by Alexandra Pereira
Mari Hokkanen (b. 1979) is a fantastic young Finnish female photographer: talented, original and technically skilled. Mari appreciates nostalgic places or environments where she feels she can start telling a story: «I am inspired by spaces in which I can imagine people and their stories. Spaces where it is possible to sense the past», like abandoned warehouses and houses, which serve as poetic shelters for her present artistic scripts. These can be shot as far as in the Australian countryside and encompass as different characters as old ladies and alternative circus artists, piercing their skin with sharp instruments while swinging hanged in the air.

Javier Velasco - Digital ArtistJavier Velasco - Digital Artist by Javier Velasco
I have always been attracted to digital art, using the computer as a tool to express it. I use images and themes relating to the world of mass communication applied to the visual arts in my work. I have been greatly influenced by a culture of technology, capitalism, fashion and mass consumption. This is the reason why I feel so connected to the pop art period of the 1960s, even though I try to escape any particular label, exploring every style and different ways of working, which allows me to let my imagination run free.You can see my artwork (high res):WWW.JVELASCO.COM

The Bible was originally used in a Protestant church in Oklahoma, USA, from a private family there, and a 92-year-old Seattle woman gave it to a friend who gave it immediately to me in West Seattle. The elderly lady has family but no one is Christian.

Linda Lane's EyesLinda Lane's Eyes by Linda Lane
Eyes are organs of vision that detect light. Different kinds of light-sensitive organs are found in a variety of organisms. The simplest eyes do nothing but detect whether the surroundings are light or dark, while more complex eyes can distinguish shapes and colors. Eyes are also considered the window to our soul.
The Shrine to CircusanityThe Shrine to Circusanity by Linda Lane
“Welcome to the land of imagination enthroned -- The Shrine to Circusanity. It is the creation of a suggestive magic and of course, the holy spot for the new religion. I'm not too crazy about the pomp, but I love the circumstance of religion. I shall have my own! And in keeping, know all ye, this disease of circumstance can upset the dark forces that require us to be passive. On the other hand, guarding against slipping into becoming a disciple of Carnivalization, we must laugh at all things polished and finished. Holding our bowling balls we say, ‘Ho, Ho Ho!’”Read the Ovi article to learn more...

It dates back to the origins of the colonial Venezuela and far back to the Middle Ages in Europe.
