Banker By Day- Artist By Night

Banker By Day- Artist By Night

‘Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde’ in its flesh as a financier by day and artist by night, Mihov has developed a hobby that has seen his works placed in front of hundreds of thousands at the London Tube, LA’s Grand Union Station, Forbes Magazine, and galleries from London to Beverly Hills.

Bulgarian born, London settled, Mihov has developed a flair for art as a balancing act to his other life in the square mile. Having started first to ever paint a mere 2 years ago with no prior training, his development has been an exciting journey to witness, encouraged by one of his former banking MDs who was his mentor. Shy of public appearances, he would rather let his art talk about itself.

Diogo Duarte’s Psychological Portraits

Diogo Duarte’s Psychological Portraits

Join me next week in seeing the incredible work of Diogo Duarte.  I am exceptionally privileged to own a piece of his incredible art, which hangs in pride and place within my living room.  Come along I promise you will not be disappointed.

London-based Portuguese photographer Diogo Duarte is reinventing the way portraiture can be built into the very essence of a person’s home by putting client self-discovery at the heart of interior design. By combining uniquely personal stories with his lavish and innovative artistic vision, Diogo creates ‘psychological portraits’ that are one of a kind works of art bringing to life what matters most to his clients.

According to Duarte, “My images are my client’s emotions, hopes and dreams splashed on a wall. They are interventions in living environments that provoke conversations about the personality and life story of the person in the portrait”. Internationally renowned photographer David LaChapelle has called Duarte’s work “vibrant, exciting and emotionally powerful”.

This Is Who I Am – Suzie Pindar

This Is Who I Am – Suzie Pindar

OPEN NOW – THE NAKED ARTIST

FLUX Exhibition produces large-scale art events that have generated a huge following. They are now delighted to announce an exciting new venture FLUX PRESENTS which will showcase the work of individual or small groups of artists at interesting locations across the UK.

The first FLUX PRESENTS will showcase the edgy work of Suzie Pindar Aka The Naked Artist at a derelict house in South London.

Pindar is an artist that constantly evaluates the world and the wide range of emotions that are evoked from daily life.  Pindar Feels the need to make sense of everything and capture her observations in a way that she can express and later process.

Pindar works on themes that explore memories and moments, happiness, sadness and self-reflection.   First seizing the time with words so that the immediacy and her feelings are captured. Pindar later creates imagery that perfectly evokes her thoughts surrounding her experience.

Today Pindar’s art is much more explorative in the physical sense, she now uses her body much more to express thoughts rather than just using paper, this combination ensures maximum impact and adds a strength and boldness to her work.

Pindar produces Art that does indeed reveal ‘the naked’ truth.  Embracing experiences whether good or bad and documenting them in her bold self-expressive way.  This is work that is honest, that is bursting with feelings and memories, making the ordinary interesting.
