Hello to all of you! I am Ermis, a selftought artist from Greece! I paint on my way and I m trying, through my abstracts, to express all the things I feel, see or imagine…whatever inspires me is in my work. I paint on paper and of course on canvas and I use acrylics. I use oils too but not so often. I like to work with a palette knife along with my brushes. Recently, I made some small first steps at digital art. I am really grateful to be here as a featured artist! Thank you very much CHROMA!

“I enjoy drawing human forms, either portraits with charcoal or full model figures with acrylic paint. I was interested in drawing since I was a little child and learned on my own. Later on I took various lessons. I definitely want to study art more thoroughly in the future!”

“Hello there, my name is Marco but my alter ego who paints, is Marstiltskin. I started painting for 2 years now and I’m into art for like 4 years. My inspiration comes mostly from the different personalities of the people I meet or see. That’s why I mostly like to paint or draw faces or “characters”. My art styles are: modern-cubism, eroticism (sometimes) and pop art.”

“I got into drawing and painting back in 2016, when I was 17. I had no former training in art and started from scratch. I studied Art and Design in my A levels, but worked mostly on my own. I have sold a few pieces and have a few available as well, both on my instagram and facebook, but since I’m particularly fascinated by hyper and photo realism, the rate at which I produce my work can be low”.
SoNas is an artistic duo of friends who discovered painting in 2017. We live in south of France -Marseille- and we are both self taught. We enjoy the freedom and the emotions which art offers. We love sharing our works and learn from each other. We paint with acrylic; exploring abstract art and sometimes kids illustration. We love art; exactly as you do! Our art is inspired by the world around us, our kids, people, colors, simple things in life and emotions. This is our beginning in the artistic world and it is great and fun!

THE ARTIST SAYS:
“Gemma Hare is a fine artist residing in Aberdeen.
After graduating from Edinburgh College of Art in 2005 with a BA (hons) in Drawing and Painting, Gemma became a primary teacher, which has led her to work with children in different school settings as well as facilitating art workshops.
Her work is inspired by everyday objects and experiences, such as plants, people, places and text. She enjoys experimenting with different media and processes.
Gemma also incorporates printmaking and stencilling techniques to build multi – layered pieces.
Gemma’s current series has a new focus. Her work looks at bee preservation, through the use of her layering and colour composition, with a painted bee as a focal point. These pieces also incorporate some text, relating to the issue of bee decline and its consequences.
Gemma has been creating work again since November 2018 and is beginning to experiment with creating print editions, as well as one off originals. She has taken part in recent exhibitions in Aberdeenshire and Edinburgh so far. Gemma is happy to accept commissions and discuss her work with others.“

“Juif Gaetan is seriously interested in painting in the age of 25. He is self-taught painter working mainly on the paint substance, experimenting by adding unconventional materials like coffee and acid. His first achievements dealt only with the work of the susbtance of paint itself in an instinctive way. Only hand-made and slowly he goes to a more representational style for to be able to communicate also other messages; that only that of the instinct.
He is also an author, songwriter and performer, having realized 7 albums to date.”

“My name is Alice Frankovich. I am a self taught abstract/fluid artist based in San Diego, California. Growing up, both of my parents were very artistic. My dad had an extraordinary imagination and my mom could draw or paint just about anything. Their influence definitely contributed to the love and need for art to be a part of my life. For years, my medium was just a #2 pencil. I spent countless hours as a teenager sketching animals, nature, and even portraits of my friends. Over time I dabbled in pottery, fimo clay, water colours, and candle making. About 10 years ago, I started to paint acrylic abstracts and absolutely loved it. About a year ago, I stumbled upon fluid painting. I still paint with brushes and dabble in other mediums, but fluid painting has become my favourite medium. With this medium, there is little control, and I am loving that challenge. Learning different ways to manipulate the paint into a design or something that is beautiful, has been extraordinarily fun and rewarding.”

“Hi! I’m Dina from Dee’s Fine Art. I live in Seattle, and am originally from Egypt. I used to be a product manager in the tech industry but a few years ago I quit to pursue my artistic ambitions. I wrote a fantasy novel that will be published soon, and have taken up full time painting. I use both oil and acrylic paints, but I really love the oils. I love painting fluid art, abstract art, landscapes, and am currently fascinated with painting the human figure.”
