In his designed figurines, which he creates with a certain endearment, Luciano Polverigiano searches for the simple forms and plays with the effect of highly polished surfaces. His art is always an invitation to take a second look to find the dual intention he loves to play with. Beautiful art with a singular interpretation.

The Australian artist Fiona Francois catches our attention with a phenomenal new work. In „Until the Last“ we find the characteristic style of raw expression, of sadness and beauty in the guise of withered trees as in her most popular drawing, „The Fallen“. Moreover, in the depicted pencil and powdered charcoal on paper artwork, Fiona Francois converts thin lines over thinner drawn lines into a bombshell of emotions. It’s the contradiction and embrace between withered material and the thought of feelings’ indestructibility that captivates the observer. „Until the Last“ is a powerful and astonishing artwork at the same time. Amazing!

Cristiano Tweny creates an irresistible attraction to his drawings

 

The black from the Italian artist Cristiano Tweny, a.k.a. Red Tweny, is so much more than just black. In combination with its strongest contrast color “white”, he converts the emotional color spectrum of his works from intriguing to touching. Playing with the power of contrasts Cristiano actually manages to create an irresistible attraction. Not searching for beauty but for strong emotions he conveys feelings which do not dismiss his art observer’s easily. There is always something in his drawings that provokes to remain a bit longer. Like: “Is the depicted guy leaves the scene for sure?” A great example for the unique Tweny effect.
