Alex Kelly is a London-based artist not defined by one particular style. Varied with a sense of spiritualism, an essence of mythology, legends, love and tortured souls. There’s a 3D constructive conceptualism apparent in some of Alex’s work that we love and cannot fully depict the beauty of in images alone; you really must view the artwork to gain the full drama and impact, the depth of colour the glint of gold and the image breaking away from the canvas. Alex is diverse in her range and The Red Collection is minimalist with simplistic lines, bold and impactful but stripped bare in total contrast to the dripped and built upon work of The Black Crossroads, all stunningly emotive. Where will Alex go next with her art? We’re intrigued to find out. (more…)
Reinfried Marass is a photographer, a passionate, story telling heartfelt and truthful photographer whose images are visually stunning and can often be thought-provoking. Viewing his pictures you are taken on a journey and given a private insight into a life, a moment, a history, all special, all unique and all very memorable. I was first introduced to his pictures of classic cars and beautiful women, Reinfried obviously loves the beauty and form of the classic car, accessorised with an equally beautiful woman; these images are sensual and have the atmosphere of the golden era of movies with an elegance and sense of mystery.

A newly commissioned portrait of former ballerina and Director of the Royal Ballet, Dame Monica Mason, by artist Saied Dai has been unveiled at the National Portrait Gallery, London.
In the larger than life-size portrait, Dame Monica takes on a commanding pose as she sits holding a mask, looking sideways at the viewer; a position reflective of a dancer’s poise combined with a director’s authority and scrutiny. The deep violet colours, the heavy curtain evoking a stage in the background and the opulent folds in the blouse and shawl she is wearing create a theatrical feel to the portrait. Dai first met Dame Monica at the Royal Opera House during her final weeks as Director of the Royal Ballet before her retirement in 2012. The sittings for the portrait took place at the artist’s studio in Bath over a period of eight months. (more…)
Jordi Costa Plaza is a Spanish artist born in one of the most artist cities in the world Barcelona! It is no wonder Jordi has been creating art since a small boy. His passion and emotion for the painted canvas is stunningly obvious, there is depth, texture, expressionism and lyrical abstraction with figurative features and touches of collage . We loved the contrast in some of his paintings of dark, moody, atmospheric colour with bold and vibrant blocks or suggestions bringing the images to life and the layers of paint becoming texturally emotive in its execution.

Tully Satre is an American artist, who has studied at the Royal Academy of Arts London and the Art Institute of Chicago, a widely exhibited and awarded artist that leans towards geometric abstraction and post modernism. We were privileged to view his work at the recently opened Saatchi suite at the Hyatt Churchill London. The artwork of Tully displays a layered mechanism providing a depth of concept and a sense of modernity. We love his colour, his personality and his intrinsic artistic talent. We are very excited to see how Tully develops his obvious unique ability in the future, especially with projects that are moved away from the canvas such as his American Cube and visually stunning films! Thank you so much Tully for talking to us!
