Kwaku Owusu Achim @kwaku_owusu_achim
Kwaku Osei Owusu Achim (b. 1991) is an emerging conceptual contemporary artist based in Accra, Ghana, focusing on the intersection between how we see ourselves in the world and how our surroundings see us. He completed his studies at Yeshua Institute of Technology, where he focused on Medical Data. He worked in the medical field as an assistant at St. John of God Hospital and New Horizon, where he felt this passion for visual arts came through. During his one year of volunteer experience at the facilities, he taught art to children with autism. From there, he got a range of inspiration from the way they communicated with their hands. He finds inspiration from Jean-Michel Basiquiat, Egon Shiele and Salavdor Dali. He is currently a visiting fellow at the Noldor Residency for the 2021 year.
Nadezhda Bogomolova @nadezda_bogomolova
The world of the artist Nadezhda Bogomolova (Russia) is a universe of dreams and feelings, where flowers and plants, being main characters, come to life. Each picture of Nadezhda is a seen and lived impression. For her as an artist, flowers are wonderful means of conveying the day’s emotions.
Nadezhda’s paintings embody both love for nature and admiration for its gifts, as well as a figurative transmission of the artist’s sense and emotions. There are so much vital energy, color, light, and feelings in Nadezhda’s works that one wants to take this piece of the sun home, fill own space with love and warmth, the scent of flowering fields and meadows!
Nadezhda is currently a member of the Eurasian Art Union, a laureate of watercolor exhibitions in Moscow, Vienna, and Barcelona. Nadezhda’s works are kept in private collections in Russia and Europe.
Jan Regnart @janregnart
I was born in Lancashire but now live in the South by the New Forest. I have had a love of art since I was very young.
My paintings are inspired by the North West shoreline and by the beauty of the natural world that I see on my daily walks and represent the feelings of peace, timelessness and wonderment I experience each time.
Scott Owen @owen_arts_studio
Scott Vaughn Owen grew up in the small charming town of Columbiana, Alabama, where he was raised in an encouraging environment of family and peers to peruse his true desires and talents as an artist.
This is not a man who thoughfully “sits and paints,” he builds and stretches his own canvases, some that are 8-9 feet tall. He will often paint publicly with some local bands, creating stunning works of art in just a few hours while a audience watches. He is a physical man, whose time away from his studio is spent with his wife working on there farm. His hands are strong and rough like a carpenter not someone who you would think of as a painter. His work is full of physical energy that he pours out onto each canvas, he sometimes paints in the floor, attacking each piece from a different angle, always looking for the next visual opponent, even his drawings are made while he stands and uses his entire body to move sticks and squeeges through each piece. Owen will use just about anything to manipulate paint such as stir sticks, pieces of cardboard and pieces plastic are used to spread and manipulate his paint, he uses spray paint and a commercial sprayer to apply paint then whimsically over works his
canvases with smaller tools to create line and form. He has pioneered his own approaches to creating art, his use of tools in unique and exciting.
