Marc Craig Interview by Javier Melian, www.chrom-art.org co-founder
Marc Craig’s career seems to be skyrocketing at the moment. Super popular in social media with his large scale intricate pieces, any vehicle would be suitable to carry Marc’s creative style.

Outside his creative work he has helped clients with autism, aspergers, mental health issues, young offenders, and people who suffer from addictions through working extensively in the care industry and he is also a qualified hypnotherapist. He will be painting live at FLUX Art Exhibition, London on the 21st of Feb. Come to meet him and see him in action; you will be amazed! (more…)
We are very happy to introduce the work of Harriet Hoult who will be joining us at the FLUX exhibition in London next month. Harriet creates abstract work that concentrates on colour and form capturing a feeling with both movement and atmosphere. Painting in acrylic Harriet builds layers, combining shapes and marks to create work that is bold and bursting with an intensity of colour. Instinctive in her method Harriet is continually developing her process and takes inspiration from the simple but beautiful aspects of life such as the way light falls and the sound of a song. We love Harriet’s work and her ability to evoke a sense of passion. She explores light and colour in a way that is unique in appearing both delicate and stong. Thank you Harriet for sharing your wonderful art with us. (more…)
Bogdan Mihai Radu interview by Javier Melian (www.chrom-art.org co-founder)
Born in Sibiu, Romania, Bogdan Mihai Radu spent his childhood in Tălmaciu, a picturesque little town in rural Transylvania. He was only seven when he watched a movie that would change his destiny. In it, the main character stealed famous paintings in museums and private collections that he skillfully copied and replaced with reproductions. Fascinated by the film, little Bogdan ‘borrowed’ paintings from relatives to reproduce and then return as copies without anyone suspecting the trick for over two years!. It was the first success of the future painter who would, before long, became one of the most prominent young artists in Eastern Europe, despite the prejudices of his parents who opposed his desire to become one.
