Netherlands Visual artist Suzanne Visser, was born on March 23, 1972 in Oostburg. After completing her studies at the St. Mary's Academy in Antwerp (fashion design and illustration), she continued her studies at Art Academy St. Joost in Breda. In 1996 she graduated, illustrating in the direction. Hereafter she worked, among other things, as an illustrator and graphic designer. Over time, the illustrating took place for painting on canvas, partly due to the many positive reactions. She has been allowed to exhibit her multifarious artworks at various locations. A clear evolution is visible through the work. The paintings get an ever-greater mythical, almost spiritual depth. Those who look at one of her canvases for a long time will discover new details and hidden messages. Sometimes her work is subdued and reflective, sometimes exuberant and humorous. Some paintings look more traditional and others are true power explosions.

Evy studied from the age of 17 at the Technical School in Stockholm, Ollers and Otte Sköld's painting schools and the Academy of Fine Arts between 1949 and 1955. Evy had a unique ability to observe the animals' anatomy and movements. Due to a disability, the observations were usually made from inside her house, through the window, which makes one impressed by her precision. In addition to life in Stenhamra, she has spent a lot of time in Lapland and in Bohuslän. But Africa also made a deep impression on Evy and she then made several business trips there over the years. Then she lived and drew from inside the game reserves. Evy's life was marked by long periods of illness and anxiety, but her work radiates color and zest for life. You experience her as a person who has seen details and beauty where the rest of us would only have seen everyday.
France Lionel Morateur is a photographer based in France whose works have been exhibited nationally. He characterizes his art as the staging of "a universe on the edge of madness" that leaves room for multiple interpretations. Morateur's surrealist photomontages are inspired by art, films, and books. In his pieces, "an image is always the echo of another one". He creates by fusing photography with digital photo editing and digital art.
France Christian was born in 1957, at the foot of the Alps. As a child, he discovered art thanks to a teacher in the 6th and 5th grade. It is the revelation. The young man knows that the love of the line will follow him all his life. An easel and an oil painting box as a birthday present convince him to continue in this direction. In 2004, driven by an irresistible need to create, he gave up his profession to become a full-time artist. His participation in various fairs and art markets, but above all his contact with the public, encourage him in his approach. He is gaining confidence. His artistic research is influenced by the style of various artists, Vincent Van Gogh, Salvador Dali, Giorgio de Cherico and Nicolas de Staël. Christian Raffin paints in acrylic and oil, with a knife or brush on different media (paper, wood, canvas…) He reinterprets scenes memorized during everyday life or during his various travels. Fleeing from the technical rigor of his former profession, the artist lets his emotions guide his brush towards the essential. He purifies the subject to make it unrecognizable. Its goal is no longer to represent the strict reality but to transmit its emotion. Christian sees art as a way to lay bare and to exteriorize his feelings. Spontaneity is the key word in his work. He establishes a subtle game of contrasts between the melancholy of the characters and the cheerfulness of the colors, the sketched rendering of the figures and the depth of the painting.
Italy Silvia was born in the province of Padua 1976. She don’t remember much about her childhood but the sharper images certainly bring her back to the strong desire to paint.

Silvia remember giving her mother her paintings and she framed them all with a lot of love. She remember feeling within herself the desire to give the world a part of her world. However, she is sure that it is something magical that captures her emotions and transfers them into the canvas coloring them with magic. Silvia have never attended an art school, her career path has taken her somewhere else but, strong the desire to paint, she found time to study painting as a self-taught. She have participated in many exhibitions in northern and central Italy. Her paintings are in many private collections in Italy and the rest of Europe.

Italy Ivan is a concert musician, composer but above all a visual artist. He was born in Cagliari in 1976 and graduated in civil engineering. First the music career had the priority but thanks to a lovely coincidence his artistic path took a different shape... During a concert in Germany, at the end of 2014, a wall painting was commissioned to him. From this moment on he became known and he received several official requests for the production of other murals. The spread of images through social media brought the first requests for participation in group exhibitions. Among his most famous exhibitions: THE ESSENTIAL IS “VISIBLE” TO THE EYES, Caserta, 20 September - 4 October 2015, exhibition at the Royal Palace of Caserta, MILAN ART WEEK - “Ode to food”, Milan, 2-9 July - 2015, Group exhibition at the Pisacane Gallery and many others in Italy and abroad. Pili is committed to figurative art and devoted to oil painting. Art for Ivan Pili is like a religion: his works, which follow the tradition of Realism, require a long preparation; his production is full of details. This media refining and his incessant research, at the beginning of 2016, brought him to develop his own perfect hyperrealism: not photo, but going beyond “the photograph”. Pili’s subjects embrace figurative philosophy. Each one has a different story to tell and has a unique light scene which Pili alters to his liking and with a disarming ease. The numerous requests for participation in events and the ever-growing works commissioned would lead Ivan Pili to reverse his artistic skills, leaving music to devote himself to full time painting. Figurative art is still at the core of his production, which takes its perfection with both black and white figures and coloured ones!
Sweden Felicia is born 1992 and lives in Stockholm. After moving to a new apartment, she needed a large painting above her sofa but could not find one thought fit. Then she took matters into her own hands and created a very colorful and special painting that really stands out, a painting that we absolutely love. Shortly afterwards, she got more taste for painting and it have resulted in where she is being today. Felicia like to experiment with her art and paint very abstractly with different color combinations. She use different materials and techniques in the paintings to get a more effective and vivid feeling. No two paintings are alike, the paintings are truly "one of a kind".
Sweden Lena has always received a lot of energy and satisfaction from creating, for example through sewing, interior design or building furniture. In her professional life, Lena has worked daily to find the right shapes and proportions as a pattern designer. Being able to transfer these experiences in a painting is very exciting. Lena's paintings are painted with acrylic / mixed media and the motif is not always given in her paintings - they appear during the process. She likes to vary between abstract and figurative. Harmonious color scales in light and soft shades characterize her art style. Lena likes to experiment and explore different materials, colors and tools to get a personal touch to her art. Finding balance and calm in the finished painting is an important part of her creation and challenges her creativity. The process takes her where it wants and it is a wonderful feeling to follow without trying to master or limit. Lena's hope is to evoke a feeling with my art, to create harmonious and timeless eye-catches, which arouse the imagination and an own interpretation in the viewer. Feel great freedom and creativity in painting, to be creative is to be in the present.
We have a great variety of art and have hand-picked a number of European artists for this exhibition in Vänge.
