DR. IDA SALAMON I was born in Belgrade, I am living in Vienna and I am traveling often between the both cities and many other destinations.

an exclusive interview with antoine cordet

A keen observer, the French artist Antoine Cordet leads us to discover a world of his own, both hard and tender, warm and cold. Self-taught, it was first and foremost street art that made him take his first steps in art as a teenager, which naturally led him to painting on canvas and to make the decision, after a brief study in architecture, to become a full-time painter. He locked himself in his studio for two years and ended up being noticed by two galleries, one in Germany and the other in the United States, with whom he has been working since. The artist’s techniques evolve between the search for matter and light touches, revealing realistic subjects underlined by an abstraction that presents the portrait as a liberation. Allowing the neutrality of…

amnon david ar

Amnon David Ar, Born in Herzelia, Israel in 1973, to a non-artistic family. However, Ar's creative talent was recognized at a very young age, and he started his formal art education at the age of 14. After military service in the IDF was cut short by a flare-up of Alopecia, Ar studied at the prestigious Bezalel Academy of Arts in Jerusalem.

While he is considered to be mostly self-taught, Ar sought advice from the established painters Oswald Adler and Abraham Bykov. He first gained international acclaim when his work was praised by the…

“I have been experimenting with using metal as a canvas for my paintings for over fifteen years now. I began working with rough steel plates, making them worn out and combining this with portraiture.

As a modern-day alchemist, experiments with patinas and chemicals grant me unexpected possibilities on the lead surf ace, which result in completely new textures and colors - an intensity of color and texture which I could never achieve with oil and acrylic alone. I combine these techniques with oil and acrylic, and at the same time, include abstract in figuration. My chemical techniques are unpredictable, a fact that gives me the freedom to work. I recently made a number of paintings that were completely…
