Introducing Artist Lian Zhen

Zhen Lian is an artist base in China. She is a retired art teacher and is now back to her first love, painting. Chinese painting is her forte. She captures the beauty of nature in her use of ink, acrylic and oil. There is a dream-like, surrealistic quality to her paintings, like being in a fairy tale, very light, feminine and floaty.

Chinese painting may look simple but it is actually a highly difficult genre. Achieving the right balance and effects of water and ink on paper is no easy feat. Lian has managed to achieve this as seen from her works through the delicate strokes of her brush. She is equally adept in oil painting, her favourite medium.

Her use of complementary and tone-on-tone colours brings harmony and a sense of calm and serenity to the subjects she paints, never jarring.

In the artist's own words:
I am an idealistic dreamer, I only put beautiful imageries into my paintings. I like to cover my canvas with a profusion of colours in their dream-like imageries. I like to make myself feel like living in a dreamy world, away from the turmoils and troubles of my busy life.I love what I paint, be it an object,an animal or a landscape. I enjoy creating a romantic and poetic atmosphere in all my paintings .Like Renoir, I believe that a painting should be beautiful. My oil paintings are juxtapositions and combinations of prismy colours. I like to experiment with different medias , such as acrylic and ink on Chinese papers. But I like oil paintings most, I like the richness of its colours and its flexibility. You can paint your work a thousand times to reach a satisfactory result.

Introducing Artist Paul Arenas

Paul Arenas is born in Philippines in 1979. He graduated with a Bachelor in Fine Arts Major in Painting at the University of the Philippines Cebu College in April 2002. He has also won awards at the Jose Joya Awards Annual Painting Competition and the Metrobank Foundation, Inc. Young Painters' Annual.

Paul's art presents the everyday people – social status, mediocrity, human inclinations, social dispositions, attitudes, behavior, character, culture and customs. His art captures the playfulness and exaggeration from simple and ordinary situations that are recurrent, prevalent and real. These subjects are painted in the style of figurative abstract, cubism, symbolism and motifs of social realism.

The paintings are done in oil, covering the canvas with thick pastel colors. The bold strokes adapted from impasto and scraffito technique, intensifies the texture, movement and contrast of light and shade. The figures are portrayed in a very linear and child-like effect, influenced by Picasso and principles of Matisse. His paintings reflect the positive outlook and liveliness of the Filipinos.

People are his main subjects which he finds mysterious, complicated and interesting. His art embraces simplicity yet his subjects are full of irony. These are all well-represented in his artwork.

Introducing Artist Nagesh Goud

Nagesh was born in India in 18th July 1965. He is a multi-discipline artist and is equally adept at oil, water colour, acrylic and pen & ink mediums. In fact, he is so good with these mediums that he could combine them so well as we can see from his Puppet Makers series of paintings. His intricate paintings reflect his deeply rooted Indian culture and tradition, brought to life with modern painting techniques and bright colours.

The artist's words:
I want to express these in my own creative visual imaginary. My style of paintings is based on experimental studies, in ancient stories, with different mediums, Acrylics, Water colors, Pen and Ink, Metallic inks, oil pastles etc become strong medium of the reflection of my vivid perception and understanding of managing human value to achieve Individuality. I hope to be remembered for my ability to illustrate my convictions on Canvas.

I love working with my latest puppet maker series because these provide the line and stroke with color that I love so much. I hope my painting brings light and beauty to whoever looks at them.

Below are some of Nagesh's Puppet Maker series
