Abi Whitlock, UK

“Whitlock captures the way entering the water enables the swimmer to enter an altered state of mind; a form of escapism from the real world.”

Franck de Las Mercedes, USA

Growing up in New York City, I was exposed to the colors and imagery of the city, decaying walls, torn-up ads and the effect that time and the elements have on surfaces. 


Franck De Las Mercedes is an abstract artist based out of New York City, USA. Fascinated by the abstract expressionist movement, De Las Mercedes’ work is emotionally charged and characterized by energetic bursts of color.

Ivana Olbricht, Slovakia

“Ivana Olbricht graduated from analytical chemistry, but she exchanged the lab for a studio. She sees the world as a spectrum of colours, breaks the reality into the pieces, she looks under the surface, she highlights the important fragments and brings them to the surface.”


Ivana Olbricht is an established, internationally collected abstract artist from Slovakia. This self-taught artist is known for her bold paintings, with vivid, spontaneous colour and layers.

Corne Akkers, Netherlands

“I employ a variety of styles that all have one thing in common: the ever search for the light on phenomena and all the shadows and light planes they block in. My favorites in doing so are oil paint, dry pastel and graphite pencil. It is not the form or the theme that counts but the way planes of certain tonal quality vary and block in the lights. Colours are relatively unimportant and can take on whatever scheme. It is the tonal quality that is ever present in my work, creating the illusion of depth and mass on a flat 2d-plane.”


Based in South Holland, this Nijmegen born artist is self taught and explores shadows, light and depth in his work – through a variety of mediums and styles.

Cubistic Nude 02 (2013) – Painting, Oil on Canvas

A study after movement and cubism. I was inspired by Marcel Duchamp’s ‘nu descendant l’escalier’.
