‘I find inspiration for my artworks from biology and psychology, and how phenomenons and scale shape both. I combine elements from the visual world of biology to the phenomenon of psychology. My working process is mainly subconscious, and I never can be sure what the final result of the artwork will be before it is ready.’

Andrew ‘Epick’ Frederico is a Melbourne-based graffiti writer and artist. Unlike his precisely planned and meticulously executed graffiti pieces, these works were intentionally produced with little to no plan – a pure outworking of Andrew’s creative vision. The variety of works and vibrant use of colour comes from Andrew’s experimental nature, coupled with his drive to consistently push boundaries.
These works are a hand-picked selection – all original Thirty-Three and a Third works are available for purchase at HouseofFrederico.com

Rinette Andreasen is an autodidactic artist from Denmark.
‘The lines in my paintings are minimalistic and simple although irregular. Curved lines are mixed with straight lines conveying a sense of agility, beauty, dynamism and equilibrium.
I write with my eyes as I feel that I can draw and paint shapes that I have no words for’.

Maria De Vido is an Italian/Eritrean artist currently based in Barcelona who has lived in 5 countries including the UK. ‘I started to paint when I moved to Dublin 8 years ago. I really enjoy mixing colours as well as experimenting with new techniques. London has also been very inspiring to me. In fact I started to paint on canvas for the first time during my stay in the UK. My artwork is intended to represent that combination between the African and Italian culture in an eclectic way. Its from that mixture that my art takes place and evolves in a very personal and unique form.
Barbara Holter has mastered the technique of painting in oils in an unbelievably short time, developing an artistic strength within it that would lead one to believe she had been working with it all her life – when actually she had almost never touched oil paints.
And yet she goes on and on, her palette, painterly gesture, ductus and compositional dynamism becoming richer with every painting, without losing decisiveness and exactitude of detail. I think that in the future the name Barbara Holter will be associated with an artistically independent, highly professional and self-assured painter. – Ekaterina Walser-Vassilieva.
Simon Petrosyan was born into a family of painters in 1992 in Armenia, Yerevan. He was immersed in the atmosphere of art from an early age that sparked his interest in art. He was particularly interested in sculpture from an early age and it was 1998 when he first became acquainted with clay. In 2009 he entered the State Academy of Fine Arts of Armenia, the faculty of sculpture. As a student, he participated in numerous exhibitions in different countries. In 2014 he got Bachelor’s degree and in 2015, by participating in a presidential exhibition, he received an award for the series of the best sculptures by the president of the Republic of Armenia.
In 2016 he participated in the admission exhibition of Artists’ Union and was elected as a member of Artists’ Union. Since 2016 he has been travelling through different countries examining the impact of modern art on the inner world of a human being. In 2018 he moved to Great Britain. The philosophic approach in his works is to create a tangible link between a person and phenomena surrounding the person by means of forms and materials fixing the monumental feelings and giving the emotions which is above the rules of time and evolution.
