Qatar-based artist Surabhi Gaikwad creates endearing portraits of women adorned in vividly patterned fabrics surrounded by lush foliage. Her work is influenced by her childhood in India and the various plants in the country. Surabhi received her Master of Fine Arts in painting from the Central University of Hyderabad, India in 2005. Her paintings are in private collections in the US, UK, Germany, Qatar and India. Her work was recently selected to be part of the Polaris project, a space program created by NASA that launches works of art to the moon in four-stroke capsules. See more of Surabhi’s work here.
Steven Page Prewitt’s colorful and richly layered landscapes invoke the beauty of the Blue Ridge Mountains that define the geography of his home in Boone, North Carolina. Drawing inspiration from the art of Monet, van Gogh, and Matisse, Steven mixes media and techniques (such as collage and monoprinting) to create his own animated abstract landscapes. He has exhibited locally and in juried shows throughout the Southeast and participated in The Other Art Fair Chicago in 2019. Steven also teaches summer art workshops, something he has done since 1993. See more of Steven’s work here.
Ilya Volykhine’s work is based on his early life in the USSR before emigrating to the United States, Australia and New Zealand. Ilya seeks to portray the human psyche through his contemplative figures while maintaining a wry sense of humor about his subjects. Ilya’s compositions often use fragments of collaged text or fragments of letters handwritten by her mother. Since 2013, Ilya has participated in more than thirty solo and group exhibitions. See more of Ilya’s work here.
A native of Livorno, on the west coast of Tuscany, Agostino Veroni paints vividly colored seascapes and landscapes of the Italian coast and countryside. His vivid brushwork and use of color theory bring these stage images to life, transporting the viewer to these idyllic places. Agostino has participated in many solo and group exhibitions in Italy and America, and his work is in collections throughout Italy. See more of Agostino’s work here.
