Adrian Chesterman studied Fine Art at Norwich School of Art and Illustration at the Royal College of Art, Kensington, London. Since leaving the R.C.A., Chesterman has worked in almost every sphere of the art world.

As an illustrator, he has worked for just about everyone, on just about almost everything, almost everywhere. The advertising illustrations for "Jurassic Park" for Stephen Spielberg in Los Angeles, the sets for "Sunset Boulevard" for Andrew Lloyd-Weber in Frankfurt. Advertising commissions include "Coca Cola" in Atlanta, "Southern Sun hotels" in Cape Town and video game artwork for "Nintendo" in Chicago. Designs and visualizations for original theme parks in the United Arab Emirates and China, "Spiderman" games for MGA in Los Angeles and, over the past ten years, the aero-engine division of Rolls Royce in London has asked to illustrate nearly 50 pages for the magazine "Flight".

Among his recent projects is the creation of the gigantic illustration of the largest puzzle in the world, commissioned by Educa Boras in Barcelona. Incredibly large at 33,600 pieces and measuring 2 by 6 meters, it depicts a jungle scene brimming with detail. We also produced a set of covers for the "Armchair Reader" series of paperbacks published by Publications International in Illinois, as well as the 21 covers of the "Famous Five", the classic series by Enid Blighton. Saatchi & Saatchi's in Sidney has just commissioned a series of Toyota Landcruiser illustrations for the 2015 Sidney Motor Show and Seaworld in the US has just commissioned a poster for its new "Turtle World" themed water park in San Diego.

He has illustrated countless music album covers, including "Bomber" for Motorhead, "The Meaning of Life" for the Monty Python Crew and "The Road to Hell" for Chris Rea. He also illustrated an animated music video for Eurythmics' "Baby's Coming Back" and even built and painted an actual skull-shaped guitar for the new romantic band "Adam and the Ants".

The portrait is another of Chesterman's artistic directions. Previous commissioners include Prince Adan Czartoryski-Bourbon, cousin of King Juan Carlos of Spain, Mikael Baryshnikov, the ballet dancer, a certain captain of the Welsh Guard, a few Hollywood actors, countless children, cats, dogs and a horse called George. Oh... and a nude portrait of "Wolf", the television "gladiator", which somehow ended up on page 5 of a national daily, but the less said, the better!

He subsequently exhibited at the Center Pompidou in Paris and at the Gallerie Schémes in Lille, France, at the International Contemporary Art Fair at Olympia, at Spinks, at Kensington Town Hall and at the BBC Center in London, at the Batey Gallery in Singapore, at the Madison Gallery in Los Angeles and in many countries in Spain.

Levin's art ranges from surrealism to realism, and he uses a wide range of techniques, including oil paint, acrylic, pencil, charcoal, and tempera. He is particularly fond of the 16th century multilayer technique, which uses tempera and oil without brushstrokes.

He was mentored by Professor Baruch Elron, president of the Association of Israeli Artists, for over ten years. Levin's work has been recognized by many influential figures, including actor and producer Richard Gere, Madonna, jazz player Oscar Peterson and former President of Israel Ezer Weizman.

Levin photographed residents of the ultra-Orthodox neighborhood of Mea Shearim in Jerusalem, Jewish Attributes and those present at the Western Wall. In 2007, Alex received the Knesset Medal for his contribution to Jewish art.

“Tel Aviv – The Hill of Spring” is inspired by his favorite season and is dedicated to Tel Aviv – its people, the architecture of the buildings, the sea and the beaches. It depicts people facing snow-white buildings, in sunny weather and under a clear sky.

“Venice Through the Eyes of the Mask” takes a completely unique approach and introduces the viewer to the most important element of the Venetian carnival: the mask. His first paintings from the "mask collection" were presented in 2002 in Venice and earned Levin a scholarship to the Venice Academy of Art. The program supported the artist's continued development and allowed him to devote significant time to creating new works.

“Symphony of Rain”. Each painting was inspired by the music of different composers.
One painting complements the other, one composer is replaced by another, the foggy morning turns into a rainy evening and a starry sky above the lagoon: a puzzle of forty paintings describing the dream city on the water - VENICE !

"The colors of Judaism" It helps me a lot to present the ancient sacred prayers of the Jews, for a thousand years I have the most important task - to pour out all this spirit, all the tears shed by the Jews mourning the destroyed Temple .

Diamond Painting: Andy Russell

Andy Russell

Born in Buffalo, New York in 1945, Andy has always had a love of art and creating imaginative feel-good lands. As a child, he often entertained neighborhood children with his clay models of cities with unique architectural structures.

Finger painting in kindergarten was his first and last encounter with formal art training, and he still uses this technique today to smooth and blend paint. Andy's love for art and creativity was shared and encouraged by his aunt, a painter and architectural designer. Even though he held jobs unrelated to art, as a steel worker, life insurance salesman, field investigator, car rental manager and electronic parts salesman, it couldn't quell the passion. and Andy's desire to pursue his dream.

Around the age of thirty, after experimenting with various self-improvement techniques, Andy began having successive dreams of incredible lands of peace , of beauty and tranquility where one could skate across the landscape on clean air or soar into the sky to see the splendor below. There were beautiful and unique foliage and incredible architecture. He had many of these dreams, which inspired him to share them with the world through his art. It was from his dreams that he was able to develop his unique style.

Once his style was established, he began to mix his imagination and his experiences into it. He saw something and immediately transformed it into his own original dreamscape style. The glazing technique, which consists of superimposing thin layers of color, has proven to be the best for achieving this soft light effect. The colors seem to shine inside, which enhances the dreamlike aspect. Andy began exhibiting and selling his work gradually, at first.

Demand for his work grew to the point that in 1991 he took the leap to become a full-time artist and only haven't looked back since. Traveling has become a fun way to discover new ideas and sell your work. His palette expands as he travels. He began painting the warm colors of the red rocks of Arizona and the cool tropical colors of the beaches of Maui.

Experiencing new places helped him deepen his understanding of life - his harmony, its various means of expressing beauty, its constant change and the miracle of the underlying energy.

Today, Andy is a member of the National Acrylic Painters Association (NAPA), based in England, and a Fellow of the Buffalo Society of Artists. His artwork is well represented.

Andy's artwork is constantly evolving, while still maintaining that dreamlike quality. If asked what he thinks of his painting, he would answer: "My dreams have definitely come true!".

Diamond Painting: Brigid Ashwood

Brigid Ashwood

Hello, my name is Brigid. I'm a full-time professional artist (that's a phrase that would make my twelve-year-old self's mind boggle).

I'm not very good at writing these kinds of biographies, so I figured I'd answer a few common questions I get asked. If you have a question for me, do not hesitate to contact me.

Did you go to art school?

For me, it's a bit of a question of yes and no. I got a scholarship to the Corcoran School of Art, but unfortunately I couldn't afford it even with that scholarship. Instead, I attended a community college for a while and also attended the Maryland College of Art and Design. Although I didn't graduate, I had some amazing professional artists in my family growing up. My great-great-grandfather, George Bockius, had a considerable influence on my artistic development. My parents were also supportive, and I was able to take private art lessons growing up, where I learned all about watercolors, oils, acrylics, and more. Unfortunately, after years of traditional painting, I developed some nasty sensitivities to chemicals, and so had to transition to digital art for the sake of my health. Learning digital art was done by taking online courses, reading books, and practicing tons of stuff. In 2016, I became a Corel Painter Master*, which was pretty cool.

How did you start?

I started my career as a graphic designer using Corel Draw and Adobe Photoshop. I designed documents for websites and print media, while continuing my art studies at the same time. I eventually discovered the world of artwork licensing and realized that I could use my graphic design skills to create artwork that would appeal to a broader market. I try to create diverse art collections that cover different styles and subjects while following trends and maintaining a consistent appeal. And you know what ? Here I am, twenty years later, with a successful career in art licensing.

You're probably wondering how I make money, right?

Well, I make my living as an artist by diversifying the styles and themes of my works and selling them in different ways.

First, I sell my licensed works to manufacturers. In fact, companies that make things like puzzles, diamond stitch kits, calendars, cross stitch patterns, jewelry, clothing, home decor and more , pay me to use my designs on their products. This is where most of my turnover comes from.

But that's not all ! I also sell my creations on my Etsy store. I partnered with a professional printer to create awesome products like t-shirts, zipper pouches (perfect for tarot bags), coffee mugs, wall art, shirts, kitchen and tote bags. When you purchase from my Etsy store, these items are delivered right to your door.

*Corel Painter is a digital painting program for PC and Mac. This was the first digital painting program I fell in love with. I now paint exclusively with Procreate on iPad.

Diamond Painting: Bruce Kaiser

Bruce Kaiser

Automotive artist Bruce Kaiser has had a passion for drawing, sketching, designing and painting cars since he could hold a pencil. He loves to paint hot rods, drag cars, muscle cars, sports cars, Indy cars, Formula 1. any type of car, as long as it's cool, loud and fast. He grew up in the '60s hanging out at the local A&W drive-in, first on his bike and then with his first cars. This was Detroit's heyday of big muscle cars and the sights and sounds of hot cars under the lights of a local burger joint still influence Bruce today. Bruce strives to capture in his paintings those perfect summer nights as he remembers them. The local drag strip held drag races on Friday nights and he spent many nights there trying to capture the excitement of 60s-70s funny cars and dragsters under the lights, on film and now with brushes and paint. His paintings depict big muscle cars and hot rods like GTOs, Camaros, Hemi-Cudas, Novas, Chevelle SS, Mustangs, 32 Ford Coupes, Yenko Camaros, Super Bees, 40 Ford Coupes and many more. Bruce likes to show cars in his paintings as he remembers them as a child, not as pristine new muscle cars, but as cars that have been modified and raced, like a Chevelle SS with Chargers or a 55 Chevy with fenders cut out. Many of his paintings of hot rods and muscle cars are for sale as limited, signed and numbered prints.


He began his artistic career as an advertising artist and graphic designer after graduating from the Art Institute of Boston. After working for 16 years in a local advertising agency, he became self-employed and currently creates advertising works and illustrations for numerous manufacturers of street rod, muscle car and race car equipment. His commercial art, which includes cutaways, exploded views, line drawings and color illustrations, has appeared in most major street rod and muscle car magazines and his catalog designs have won numerous industry awards. Professional Affiliations.

The Painting Process
Bruce paintings are painted the same size or larger than the finished art print. He likes to paint big so he can capture the details that make his paintings special. Bruce strives to make his paintings as technically accurate as possible and spends a lot of time researching each subject (which is the fun part, because then he can flip through his old magazines). Paintings are made using an opaque watercolor called "Designers Gouache" on smooth professional illustration board. Smooth illustration board has a very fine tooth that gives nice texture to brush strokes while keeping a sharp edge for fine detail. A pneumatic brush is used for the homogenization of the finish of a car. He uses Designers Gouache because of the vivid colors and fine detail it achieves. Bruce loves automotive commercials and 1960s architectural renderings made with this technique. One of the disadvantages of opaque watercolors is that it is difficult to make changes or correct mistakes.

Bruce began exhibiting his artwork at the first Hot Rod Heritage Fine Art Exhibit in 1986 at the SEMA show in Las Vegas, where he has since been a featured artist. He was also one of the featured artists at the Gallery Automania Hot Rod Heritage Art Exhibit in Rochester, Michigan. His painting "Jim Hogg County" was the first to appear on the cover of Street Rodder magazine. He has also written and illustrated articles that have appeared in Street Rodder and Custom Rodder magazines. He was commissioned by Group Promotions to do the cover illustration for the book "Road Rockets", one of the titles in a limited edition collection of famous teenage Hot Rod novels from the early 60s by author Henry Gregor Felsen. He also does automotive design and concept renderings for custom car builders like Posies Rods and Customs.

Bruce also did lettering, graphics and murals for race cars, vans and bike tanks, he airbrushed the "chrome" details of fun car bodies and did flame paint jobs for hot rods "back in the day". In addition to his automotive art, Bruce enjoys creating science fiction and aerospace paintings and has been featured in the National Space Society magazine. He is a fan of F1, Indy Cars, NASCAR and Drag Racing. He also loves great American and European classics, sports cars and vintage racing cars. Bruce lives north of Albany, New York with his wife Tina and their two Westie dogs, and he has one son, Warren. He and his wife enjoy tinkering with their collection of old cars and taking his converted '67 Rambler Rogue (401 and 2-4bbls!) on trips, shows and cruises.

Carolyn Steele

I am a snorkeler. The very first time I put on a mask and discovered the magical underwater world of the reefs, I was hooked forever. It was the snorkeling experience that really opened my eyes to the diversity of nature as a whole. I am always inspired by the stunning color, complexity and beauty of the wildlife I have observed in my years of travel in the Caribbean. My images are made up of elements that a nature lover might encounter on a morning walk or an afternoon snorkeling.
I grew up in England and when I was little , I took private art lessons in the countryside where I created detailed studies of flora and fauna in a variety of media. My father, also an artist, inspired and encouraged me from the start. I started to paint pictures of the Caribbean in 1992, in order to prolong the memory of my visits to the Antilles.


I have a background in graphic design, which has helped me to develop my sense of composition, an important element of all my paintings. In graphic design/lithography, I was limited in my use of color. Painting the tropics allowed me to unleash my creativity. I like to work big. I rarely work below 18 x 24 inches, and most of my paintings are on 22 x 30 inch, 300 lb watercolor paper.

I am committed to nature education and conservation, which is why I donate part of my profits to wildlife and reef preservation projects. I hope my works will decorate and make people appreciate the incredible variety and fragility of the biosystems I paint. The majority of species represented here are native to the West Indies, and many of them are endangered.

My mission is to create meaningful works of art that I hope will inspire you.

I am the mother of four beautiful children and the wife of Michael.

I live on a small ranch in Southern California with two dogs, five chickens, a rooster and two turkeys.

I accept orders for personal or commercial use.

The past few years , I have had great success in having my works published worldwide. Through this, I found ways to share what God has done in my life.

Some finished works of art act a bit like a written journal... describing what I was thinking, feeling or praying. Joys, sorrows, expectations - in each of my works.

In 1998, I was suddenly struck by a serious illness and went blind - it's a long story, but let's just say I had a miracle. I was told that I would not live to see my daughter reach adulthood and then, by the grace of God, and the intercession of Saint Padre Pio of Pietrelcina, I was miraculously cured. Before that, I had never done art strictly speaking (except what one does when one is a child or with one's own children) - then after my miraculous recovery - God led me to the work that I do NOW. He had a plan for me. If you want the full story of my miracle, please don't hesitate to contact me. <3

I dedicate this site and my work to Christ - who has given me every success and every blessing and enabled me to support my family through the work I love more.

I am a self-taught American artist, working out of my studio in Idaho Falls, Idaho. Since 2006, I have been selling my artwork online, at events, and through licensed products.

My childhood was spent in Northern California, where I discovered my passion . Like many artists, I have always been obsessed with drawing and coloring! Everything was going well when I received a new coloring book and a new box of colored pencils. Drawing has always been a part of me: my first paid freelance job was when I was 11 (a colored pencil drawing of a bald eagle for my science teacher's son as a birthday present). anniversary) ; I was the dedicated artist for every school group project; and after school I was the girl knocking on your door trying to sell you hand-drawn bookmarks for 50 cents each! When I was not in school, doing my homework or doing household chores, I was drawing, writing, reading or making something. I'm a completely self-taught artist and graduated with an Associate of Commerce degree in 2007. I'm thrilled to be able to share my talent with the world and make it my livelihood!

My original works are created by hand, in watercolor pencil and ink on illustration board, using traditional materials and techniques. Dimensions range from miniature (2.5"x3.5" all the way up to 11"x14", although I could go a little further). Sometimes I work in acrylic on wood, which allows me to paint a little bigger and use different techniques. I also do all of my graphics for internet and product use, and produce many of my own studio prints and products, and publish my own coloring books and trading cards. I am currently licensing outside companies to use my artwork on products such as cross stitch charts, stationery, rubber stamps and more. I love being able to feature my artwork on products that I know people will use and enjoy!

Fans have been collecting my artwork on sites like eBay and Etsy for many years now, and hundreds of my original paintings and prints can be found in many personal collections around the world. My fans are very important to me, because I wouldn't be where I am today without their support!

By respectfully working with these images, Jody participates in the meaning of our history and reintegrates their symbols into our modern culture.

I propose that humanity shares a common reality, just beyond the reach of normal sight. Images are emotions, those that are invisible but felt...inaudible but known. There are times when we have a heightened awareness of existence...like the feeling of exhilaration when standing on the edge of a mountain, or atop a crescent moon. Each man's physical adventure is unique, but the abstract language of feelings, and our realization of existence is our common experience. My paintings are part of my personal adventure. Memory simplifies decor. I no longer see the edge of the mountain, but I do see the feelings it stirred.

Art is a tradition that helps define who we are and gives us a vision of what we can become. My painting is my expression and my request for a more beautiful, peaceful and harmonious world.

I wish you an endless childhood,

John Clark

I started painting in pastel in 1985, as a natural progression from drawing, which I had practiced for as long as I can remember. Two years later, I moved to the Cayman Islands, where I lived with my family for fourteen years. The colors of the Caribbean stimulated my artistic senses and invited me to capture the turquoise sea and bright pink bougainvillea on paper and canvas. The Cayman Islands artistic community welcomed me, private collectors and institutions purchased my works, and I participated in many visual arts exhibitions and group shows, winning several awards. The Cayman Islands is a British Dependent Territory and my status within the artistic community gave me the opportunity and honor to meet members of the Royal Family.

I started using the acrylic towards the end of my stay in the Cayman Islands, and now that I live in England, I paint almost exclusively with this technique. Acrylics combine the strength of color with technical simplicity, and thanks to their durability, I know that when I ship originals around the world, they arrive in perfect condition.

One of the advantages to live in Europe is to be able to travel to countries like Italy and France. I feel lucky to have been able to paint a few pastoral scenes of Tuscany and Provence in between my more typically tropical works for Caribbean galleries and collectors in the United States.

In 2013 I started painting paint scenes of Kauai, to exhibit and sell them through the Palms Gallery. It was a great privilege for me to be selected to be the gallery's first international artist, and there can be no better inspiration for an artist than to have the most naturally beautiful landscapes on the planet as their subject matter, and a gallery in the middle of it all where his works can be exhibited and enjoyed. Today my days begin with a blank canvas in front of me and images of staggering waterfalls, rugged mountains, pristine beaches and swaying palm trees just waiting to be painted.

My first name is Julie, they call me BuiBui.

Originally from the shores of Lake Geneva, I put my suitcases in Ain, next to a weeping willow. I live there with my lover, my pretty girl, my pretty boy, a lot of paper, a lot of paint and a bunch of crayons.

As far back as I can remember, I've always had a pencil in my hand.

Having studied Art History (mainly of the 20th century) at high school, I obtained a Bac L Plastic Arts in 2005 and then did a very brief stint at the National School of Fine Arts in Lyon. The teaching practiced was not made for me!

Since then I have been constantly painting, gluing, drawing and coloring, always on the lookout for new ideas and techniques. It's a necessity!

Inspired by children's illustration, singular Art, the culture of Street Art or even Primitive Arts, I work to develop a personal and poetic universe which is intended to be an invitation to travel, in worlds populated by melancholic creatures, and in which time often seems to stand still.

Based mainly on the human figure (often female) and nature, my work mixes false naivety, colors, patterns and other heady interweavings that are like so many paths in the course of our thoughts.

My characters and other landscapes each have a unique story that I tell myself when I give birth to them, and I like the viewer to imagine it in turn...

Technical

Lately I've been mixing paint, acrylic inks and markers. I frequently add colored pencil to it and use my precious rotring and staedler pens (refillable pens for technical drawing). I have used gouache and pen a lot in the past and am always on the lookout for new techniques.

Having worked a lot on canvas frames, I have recently opted for supports with smoother surfaces such as wood and paper.

I was born in the Bouches du Rhône and I spent my childhood between the beautiful forests of Burgundy, my mother's country, and the scrubland of Marcel Pagnol.
When I was little, I wanted to be Snow White , Cinderella, getting lost in wonderland or sometimes knowing how to wiggle my nose like my beloved witch while daydreaming in front of Sarah Kay's illustrations.

As a dreamer, I had long since invented a magical world where I could take refuge at my leisure.

"Then she fell into a long, very long sleep..."

pomme

I drew like all children draw, but without knowing that it would become a real passion.

I am self-taught and I started sketching mostly landscapes and still lifes. Drawing was very appealing to me but I was never completely satisfied with my "subjects of study".
One day I sketched a little elf in a landscape and it seemed to me so natural that I continued on this path.
Since then, I have devoted my drawing to all these little characters who accompanied me in my childhood and whom I had so much pleasure in seeing again. I now like to bring them to life on a sheet of paper.
I continued to combine my passion for drawing with the fairy world as well as my passion for certain periods of history.

My inspirations are quite varied but often revolve around the magical or the fantastic since I appreciate the softness of the illustrations of Meredith Dillman or Delphine Gache like the darker designs of Tim Burton or Barbara Canepa.

I have been working in the field of vocational training for adults for 20 years and have been declared freelance illustrator since 2008. I reconcile my time between a very rewarding job, my family life and my passion for drawing.

Keeping a piece of magic and childhood is vital for me.

I'll end with my favorite quote:

"What makes the poet? Isn't it love, the desperate search for the slightest ray of sunshine playing on the parquet floor of a child's room"
François Mauriac.

My work as an illustrator

I dreamed of my engravings as princely kisses,

a little naive and childish, they speak to your inner child, the one who deep down inside you has never really grown up.

Filled with melancholy, they speak to you of lost worlds, of melodies forever stolen from your childhood.

Sometimes you'll bite into the poison apple, other times a frog will awaken you.

Often, it's little wood fairies who look you deep in the eye and say:

"Remember"

My illustrations are made of different techniques, either in traditional, watercolor, acrylic and colored pencil; either digitally painted in Photoshop. I always try to instill magic and softness in my way of painting, whether traditional or digital.

Diamond Painting: Lucia Van Den Berg

Lucia Van Den Berg

Lucia van den Berg, originally from a small town in the Netherlands, discovered her love for art as a child, inspired by the beautiful tulip fields and windmills that surrounded her home. The vivid colors and tranquil beauty of her homeland became a constant source of inspiration for her art. Van Gogh's enchanting depictions of the Dutch countryside deeply influenced her, as did the intricate patterns and symbolism of Gustav Klimt's works.

However, Lucia's passion for art was not limited to local landscapes. As a young adult, she embarked on numerous trips, exploring various landscapes around the world. Her works, created primarily with wood pencils and sometimes combined with digital art, reflect the diverse environments she encountered.

Her work "Macaw Family" was inspired by her time in South America, where she was captivated by the vibrant colors and sounds of the jungle. "Mountain Escape" and "Field of Fragrance" reflect her travels in Canada and France, respectively, while "Sakura no Tancho" was inspired by a visit to Japan, where she fell in love with the serene beauty of traditional Japanese architecture and the symbolic trees of the crane and cherry blossom.

Despite her talent, Lucia remains a relatively unknown artist. She has always preferred the quiet solitude of her travels and the comfort of her small studio in the Netherlands to the spotlight. She continues to travel and create, driven not by the desire for recognition, but by the joy of capturing the beauty of the world in her art. Her works, which are snapshots of a time and place, are cherished by those lucky enough to come across them.

Illustrator, painter, poet... I am many hats, a joyful and colorful artist at heart! After literary studies, then obtaining my master's degree in Teaching, I redirected myself towards my childhood passions, to devote myself entirely to them. It was during my first parental leave that I took up drawing again, to the delight of my two children.
Self-taught, I explored many techniques, and drew a lot, to then create “my way”.
My style? Close to naive art... It is colorful, lively, full of contrasts, deliberately disproportionate, magical, sometimes funny, sometimes poetic! A big lover of animals, I love representing them... and in particular Mimie, my little black and white cat, who has become the image of my company, and of my brand "Marion-nette Illustrations", created in 2017.
Each of my illustrations are imagined and created with a lot of love and passion. I often say that my art “is the expression of my overflowing heart”. More than a simple image, it is a powerful tool for transmitting values ​​and resources.
Sometimes we go through difficult times, and that's when we especially need tenderness, acceptance, forgiveness, joy, sparkles & sparkling eyes! This is what I want to convey through my illustrations.
Today, I am happy to be able to share them with you, through diamond painting, cross stitch, the Oraloa pixel hobby, and puzzles.

Diamond Painting: Misstigri

Misstigri

Valérie Moigne aka Misstigri is an independent artist based in Nantes where she also runs a small boutique.
After a Bac F12 applied arts and a BTS in Interior Architecture, she will continue on a long cycle at the Beaux-Arts in design options. Despite an attempt at architecture, her passion for images took over and pushed her to set up as an independent graphic designer in 2000. This work being directed by the constraints of clients, she sought an escape by starting to paint, and will give birth to female characters who will become his trademark “Les Misstinguettes”.


Today, as a graphic designer, illustrator and painter, she draws her inspiration from painting with influences such as Klimt, Mucha, Shiele and Pignon Ernest, as well as from comics via Bilal, Manara, Dautremer, and even fashion. (Lacroix, Gaultier or Miyaké,…) and animated cinema (Burton, Miyazaki,…).


Her technique first begins with the development of a sketch which she then reproduces on the scale of the canvas. Like a school teacher, she constructs the main lines of the drawing with chalk. She fine-tunes, equalizes then erases from the back of her blouse everything that interferes with readability... The basis is in place.
The skin, the clothes, the hair and then the rough shadows in acrylic. Precise shadows, volumes and very bold pastel shadows. A little touch of precision for the posca (gouache marker) and 3D paint (tulip) finishes. If the young lady who comes to life asks her to, she decorates her dress with feathers, lace or ribbons...


Today, it has acquired great notoriety and is considered a reference in its own right by many...

Diamond Painting: Nadia Strelkina

Nadia Strelkina

Artist Nadezhda Strelkina was born and raised in the village of Fedoskino near Moscow. Strelkina was her surname when she married, while in her youth she was called Burbysheva. The Burbyshev family gave several generations of famous artists to Fedoskino. At the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries, Nadezhda's great-grandfather owned a small factory called Burbyshevskaya Workshop, which produced painted lacquer snuff boxes, silver cigarette cases, cups, etc. The revolution of 1917 made private entrepreneurship impossible and the "Burbyshevs' workshop" closed its doors. However, the dynasty of Zakhar Timofeevich Burbyshev was continued by his sons, Semyon and Dmitry, who were the leading artists of the Fedoskino artel during the Soviet era. Nadezhda Strelkina's father, Viktor Semyonovich Burbyshev, was among the best artists at the Fedoskino miniature factory and worked there for more than 40 years. A graduate of the Fedoskino school of miniature painting, Nadezhda also continued the artist dynasty.

His talent for painting manifested itself very early. She considers her main masters in art to be the old classical masters. Inspired by them, as well as Russian fairy tales and spiritual legends, she creates images that awaken kind and bright feelings in the viewer. Nadezhda's artistic style is unique and makes her works instantly recognizable. Her way of writing is very delicate and she is famous for her soft and delicate depiction of faces, as if they were radiating from within. She is the embodiment of the Russian ideal of female beauty. The works of Nadezhda Strelkina are kept in the Fedoskino Factory Museum and in many private collections in Russia and abroad. In 1997, Nadezhda's works were released under license in the United States and immediately gained immense popularity. The largest souvenir company "The Bradford Exchange" has launched a series of music boxes, porcelain plates, Christmas tree decorations, etc. called “Symphony of Angels”. For this series, Nadezhda received the crystal cup "New Name of the Year".

Since then, Nadezhda has been collaborating with various companies. His works can be seen on various products (postcards, calendars, puzzles, Christmas tree decorations, collectible plates, music boxes, etc.) in virtually every country in the world. Thanks to the opportunity to earn money by selling her licensed images, Nadezhda was able not to sell the originals of her works of art and, having accumulated a large collection, was able to realize her old dream: to open her own museum private in the homeland of Russian lacquer boxes, in the famous village of Fedoskino. The museum's collection includes more than 40 works of lacquer miniatures (boxes, caskets, wall panels), created by Nadezhda over the past 20 years.

Diamond Painting: Nancy Fournier

Nancy Fournier

WHERE I COME FROM

I am a self-taught painter. I started to paint in oils by exploring different techniques. Not finding what I was looking for, I continued to draw for my own pleasure and turned to graphic design for over 20 years, where I explored different visual styles. This is where my style appeared. This change prompted me to return to the countryside and devote my time to my family life.

WHAT INSPIRES ME

This other path has allowed me to find a style of artistic expression that reflects my colorful, spontaneous and soft side. Inspired by the animal kingdom and the human, I like to paint my subjects in a setting of movement and very colorful vegetation. A decor that amazes and transports you to dreams, via the magical universe that emerges. I wish to touch that spark of magic within everyone.

WHERE I START

My works follow these stages of production: I start by producing an automatic drawing, then I let myself be inspired by the range of colors to be used and finally, I finish with a black line in Indian ink.

ARTISTIC STYLE

My art oscillates between Pop Art, psychedelic and naive art. My works express Joy and awaken us to the Space of Emptiness through their bright colors applied flat with acrylic paint. I find that the black lines surrounding each shape create a distraction for the mind, which engenders an inner calm. In my opinion, the black lines represent 0.001%* of our material reality, while the solid colors are Space. We believe that we are separated from Space when separation is only a tiny part of reality, as we understand it.

CHARACTERISTICS

My works are distinguished by the absence of a straight segment and the presence of continuous movement. They contain a multitude of shapes, ranging from circles, many of which are concentric, to hearts and flowers that combine to form different mythical symbols.

* According to quantum physics our material reality is only 0.001%, the 99.999% is the Quantum Vacuum Space, or the unlimited.

"What about me?

I was born in Belgium where I still live.

My taste for creation and drawing comes from my mother, who introduced me to various creative hobbies and reading from a young age.

Once I started drawing, I never stopped. I scribbled on anything and everything, even my class sheets.

My influences are numerous: Comics and a little more the world of manga, video games, cinema and series, and of course, my reading. I am passionate about tales, myths and legends which are inexhaustible sources for my imagination.

In terms of my studies, I started with a year in drawing before continuing in digital arts, from which I graduated.

But later, I refocused on illustration and comics where I can better imagine, express myself and feel myself.

In terms of my work, although I most often color my illustrations on the computer, I remain an unconditional user of the paper format for my sketches, and I sometimes try my hand at watercolour.

I don't know what else to say, I hope my work will touch you and please you.

I would like to thank Oraloa for the new experience and the adventure it offers me with this collaboration.

See you soon,

Steve Read

Steve grew up in Cornwall and the coast has always been a huge influence and inspiration to him. He was fortunate enough to have Cornish Painter John Piper as his art teacher at school and through him gained a place at Falmouth School of Art in 1987.

He then went on to spend over a decade in the advertising and design industry, working in London and Amsterdam, before returning to the coast in 2003, to Dorset.

As an artist Steve has a recurring interest in coastal landscapes and marine scenes, and his paintings often convey a sense of anticipation at spending the day at the beach.

A great influence on Steve’s work has been the artwork associated with travel posters from the 1920’s and 1930’s where detail is kept to a minimum, and the use of flat colour and strong shapes created by light and shadow.

Another motivating factor for his art is colour – choosing to use a limited palette of desaturated, earthy hues.

Diamond Painting: Yaakov Abergel

Yaakov Abergel

Born in France in Toulouse, the pink city, of ‘Hananiah Abergel and Esther Malka (née Berdah). Second of three children.

Until adolescence he lived in the countryside in St Ferréol. Around the age of 12, his mother made him take violin lessons, which he took for 2 years, but he decided to stop playing music to devote himself to drawing and painting. His father, who is a furniture and antiques trader, is passionate about art and encourages him to develop his taste for drawing. At the age of 12 he gave her an easel. This relationship that was born between them, that of an admirer of painters and a budding painter eager for advice and knowledge, continued throughout their lives.


At the age of 14 following the divorce of his parents, he left to live with his mother and two sisters in Toulouse. During this period he discovered B. D to which he will not stop devoting himself until the age of 22. During the years in Toulouse he sought himself a lot, and in addition to a passion for photography and cinema he began to take an interest in painting. After having started scientific studies, he ended up obtaining an artistic Baccalaureate which led him to enroll in the school of Architecture in which he would study for 2 years. Before taking his exams to enter the third year, he decided to give up to study at the St Luc school in Brussels, at the school of B. D He will study there for 2 years. During this period he discovers Contemporary Art and Contemporary Artists and decides to stop the B. D to also devote himself to contemporary art.


He left to live in Italy, in Florence in order to enroll in a painting school. When he enrolled, the school director, seeing his work, pointed out to him that he would waste his time pursuing studies and that the time had come to embark on life. He will listen to his advice and begin a solitary journey. After a year spent in Florence, he left the "Dolce Vita" to return to Toulouse where he passed the Beaux Arts competition, which he passed, but he only stayed a few months at the Beaux-Arts, which he finally left to devote himself alone. to painting. During his brief stay at the Beaux-Arts in Toulouse, he met Annie Merle who saw his work and chose him from among the Artists to whom she devoted a book that she would publish entitled: “the painters of the Toulouse school”.

Until the age of 27 he never stopped working, painting and drawing without ever managing to integrate into an artistic environment, whether in the world of galleries or in the middle of painters. Although he was unable to exhibit his works, he continued his research. He is 27 years old and decides to make a real living. His parents, who work in furniture sales, help him become a salesman. He first worked in his father's store, then his mother took him with her to teach him the trade. After a difficult start, he acquires a good foundation that allows him to go live and work alone in a store in Paris. He will work there for 3 years. During this period he continues to draw, mostly on the blocks that are used for sales. He painted a few pictures and made many drawings of the streets of Paris during his days off.


His older sister, who at that time had become a nun, sent him books dealing with the deep part of the Torah, Chabad Chassidism and the Lubavitcher Rebbe.

During the holidays he takes a trip to Tahiti and Bora Bora. This trip will be decisive in his life because he will reawaken his desire to paint and create to the point that following this trip he decides to resign from his job as a salesman to devote himself to painting. He then travels to Montreal in Canada to visit his younger sister who has been living there for some time. He meets Haim Sherff there. This Israeli religious painter who lives in Montreal made him aware of the importance of being attached to his roots, and recommended that he become more religious by studying Torah. Indeed, Art according to him cannot be dissociated from the divine spirit expressed in the Torah. Yaakov understood these recommendations well and, in parallel with his work as an Artist, began a religious journey under the influence of the Master of Chabad Chassidism: the Rebbe of Lubavitch.


His new habits naturally led him to pray every morning at the Synagogue on Pallaprat Street, where Chief Rabbi Eliahu Haik also prays, and on Shabbat at the Rebbe's Shalia'h Synagogue in Toulouse: Rav Yossef-Itz'hak Matusof who was the first to introduce him to the Rebbe and the Hasidic world. It was during this period that he discovered the book of Tanya with Rav Gabriel Sebagh. He also studies Chassidut Chabad with Rabbi Israel Zerdoun.

He returns to live in Toulouse. His mother meets Dany Simon who owns an art gallery and who organizes a first exhibition for him which brings together works inspired by the religious world.

It was at this time that he met Liba through David and Edith Hagège, friends of his older sister, and whom he married on June 22, 1997 in Lyon. A year after their marriage, the couple decided to join Yaakov's sister and her husband Samuel Marquès, who had been living in Israel for a year and settled in Jerusalem.

He spends less and less time painting and drawing because he devotes himself to the study of Torah, first at the Yeshiva of Rav 'Haï Barkats then and especially at the Kollel of Rav Shimon Elitouv under the leadership of Rav Avraham Kot. He spent 4 years at the Kollel and obtained the rabbinical ordination of Rav Itz'hak Yéhudah Yérouslavski. It was during this period that he met a decisive person in his life, Rav Ytz'hak-Tsvi Eizenbakh with whom he studied Chassidout and in particular the book of Tanya for many years. He attends many Chassiduth courses, including courses given by Rav Aaron-Mordé'hi Zilberstraum, Rav Chmuel Weinfeld, Rav Chnéor-Zalman Gopin, Rav Avraham-Baroukh Pevzner and Rav Moché Weiner. He is particularly attached to Rav Yossef-Itzhak Offen, whose classes he follows to this day.

His artistic taste will naturally lead him to study Sofrout in Bnei Brak with Rav Gerschtenkorn who was recommended to him by Rav Moché Landau. He obtains the Smi'ha of Sofer from Rav Yéruslavski, which will allow him to practice the profession of Sofer until today by writing the Ktav of Admur Hazaken.

Furthermore he also obtains a Smi'ha of Sho'heth from Rav Shimon Elitouv but apart from the Kapparoth he does with his friend from the Kollel, Rav Yaakov Sho'hat, he will not exercise this occupation.

In 2000, birth of his daughter Haya-Mushka in Jerusalem on Purim Katan.

He changed Kollel and began to study dayanouth in Kollel ‘Ariel’ until today, with Rav Moshe Pinder. He devoted himself more and more to painting and painted many portraits of the Chabad Masters. His creation diversified more and more and he began a series of seascapes on wooden pallets.

Along with his studies and his artistic work, he devotes a lot of time to writing works based on the teachings of the Chabad Masters and the Rebbe, and in particular on the essence of soul. This subject will never leave him. He publishes 3 books.

In 2009, birth of his two sons on the day of Lag Ba Omer.

He is continuing to write a novel he began a few years ago which brings together travel memories (in particular the trip to Bora-Bora) and reflections on Techouva. His book is called "colors in the veins" and reveals his passion for Art.

His sister organized an exhibition of his paintings for him in Raanana in the “Merkaz Giron” gallery. The opportunity is given to him to present in large paintings a small overview of all of his work based essentially on the Chassidic world.

He then made the acquaintance of Yaakov Benhaim and Moché Krieger from the magazine Météor LeMag who devoted a video to this occasion. This meeting marks the beginning of a collaboration from which will be born the production of Torah and Chassidouth lesson videos.

The dissemination of the sources of the Chassiduth is at the center of his concerns and while pursuing his studies he gives many courses around him. His artistic activity intensified and countless drawings were added to his paintings.

His friend Nissim Belma put him in contact with his brother Elie, with whom he designed a site whose objective was to make his artistic work known and to disseminate the Sources of Chassiduth outside.

Since his exhibition in Raanana, he has taken to writing excerpts from the Chassidic speeches of the Lubavitcher Rebbe on his canvases. Thus mixing words with images, the painter seems to finally be able to express his love for painting and for the writing that he unites on his canvases.

“You probably know that the quality of a painter consists in concealing the external aspect of an object, in forgetting its contours, in order to penetrate it, to grasp its deep aspect and essence, in order to express it through his canvas. Thus, whoever contemplates it will perceive what he had not noticed before, when the inner part was hidden by accessory elements. ”
