This October, we feature 10 new and exciting artists who come from around the globe and specialise in a wide variety of materials, techniques, and styles. Despite their differences, these artists are often motivated by their natural and social environment. They draw inspiration from their daily observations and express them in their unique artworks. From abstract paintings to surrealist photography and minimalist sculptures, scroll down to check out our list of 10 artists to watch out for this month!
Merritt Spangler's art is characteristically spontaneous in appearance, juxtaposing text, found objects, and sometimes imagery all within a single work. She utilises a vast spectrum of unconventional and conventional media in her practice, ranging from dirt and olive oil to spray paint, charcoal, and oil. Her paintings employ a wide range of techniques to explore abstraction, content, and mark-making as she works wildly across large stretches of material often times deconstructing it before reconstructing content in a new form. Much of her work challenges the viewer to escape the chaos in the world through minimal expression.
Mea Ambrozo lives and works in France and has exhibited her works nationally and internationally. The artist uses painting, photography, and drawing. She explores themes related to nature, architecture, time, shadow, contrast, colour, and negative space. Mea describes her work as semi-abstract, and she creates pieces that generate indirect meaning. She uses acrylic paint and pigments on linen canvas and Sennelier wood fibre.
Rudragaud l Indi is a Bengaluru-based artist whose works are a commentary on the lack of attention given to vital issues in today's society and the environment at large. He expresses his interactions with nature and society creatively through paintings and sculptures. His fantasy scapes are inspired by the rapid urbanisation that has swept the country with the co-existence of the past and the present in any Indian metropolis today and the destruction to nature caused in the process.
Dasha Pears is an award-winning artist, currently based in Helsinki, Finland. Dasha's uncanny laconic art pieces are focused on self-discovery and our inner worlds. Aesthetically clean and pleasing artworks are like doors to a surreal universe where any psychological state becomes beautiful. Dasha uses the instruments of surrealism, minimalism, colour, photography, and digital manipulation to tell surprising visual stories with a twist. In her stories, she speaks about the deepest psychological matters, bringing things that are usually considered unpretty to light, making them shine with different colours and aesthetically appealing. This way Dasha's art gives viewers a chance to be at peace with themselves, providing an almost physically soothing effect on the human psyche.
South Korean artist Sohwa Yeongok majored in painting and undertook various experiments at Hongik University's Graduate School of Art in Seoul. She attaches silk thread to the canvas to explore the textures and materiality of the thread. Her works create a visual language of light, life, and relationships, leading to the purification and reflection of emotions.
Born in Geneva and based in Zurich, Tina Sturzenegger is a visual artist with a strong focus on concept development and art direction. Tina shoots photographic stills in a witty style marked by bold colours and great graphic compositions. Her playful image language is unique and unexpected. Her work ranges from experimental personal projects to commercial assignments for worldwide brands.
Russian artist Diana Malivani is a Doctor of Medicine (M.D., PhD.) by her training and profession. Her works regularly appear in prestigious exhibitions and compete in art contests in several countries. Her works are also published in international art journals and are held in the collections of both national museums and private collectors around the world. Diana's artistic oeuvre is characterised by a variety of thematic areas: flora and fauna, landscapes, genre scenes, and abstraction. The dominant theme in her works is nature, and she combines this impressionism and realism.
Austin Turley is a Portland, Oregon-based artist whose objects and images investigate themes of presence, memory, language, and time. He works in multiple formats, using the act of collecting as a point of departure. Austin received a BFA in sculpture from the Pacific Northwest College of Art. After graduating he received employment as a glass caster at Bullseye Glass Company.
Spanish artist Cosmoselector is a young interdisciplinary and eclectic artist whose work represents a journey looking for the beauty trapped within sedimentary geology. To the artist, the discovery of the "unexpected" has always been a powerful catalyst for human creation and improvement. Cosmoselector's artistic production comprises samples and fragments of distant landscapes of alien worlds. He is an artist who challenges the observer to act as a space explorer or natural scientist.
Serbian artist Nemanja Nikolic is a painter who specialises in abstract works. Entropy, colour theory, texture, and composition form the essence of his paintings and place him in the realm of abstract expressionism. Nemanja has been active in the field for the last twenty years and he holds a BA in Fine Arts from the Academy of Fine Arts Bologna and an MA in Fine Arts from the Academy of Fine Arts Brera Milan, Italy. He has been living and working in the UK since 2011.
