Olga Skorokhod has garnered acclaim for her imaginative abstractions of natural beauty. Armed with a surgical blade and an airbrush, Olga creates small-scale paper sculptures inspired by her infectious love of nature. Impacted by the subtle the play of light and shadow, the meticulously layered sculptures become dynamic portals into otherworldly landscapes. Olga earned her masters degree in fine and decorative arts from the Institute of Publishing and Printing at the National Technical University of Ukraine. She now resides in Oregon and has exhibited across the United States and Europe. See more of Olga’s work here.
Andy Shaw incorporates the techniques and subject matter of pop and street art with conviviality and a playful approach to color and composition. He counts David Bowie (and David Bowie’s personal hairdresser, Josh Wood), Donna Karan, and Sir Henry Rothschild among his collectors. Andy’s work has been shown at the Victoria & Albert Museum and featured in BRAND Magazine Hong Kong. See more of Andy’s work here.
Fares Micue explores joy, desire, and human connection through her surreal self portraits. With her face often obscured and set against ambiguous backgrounds, Fares creates forceful works that are alternately enticing and unsettling. Fares’ work resides in collections across the United States and Europe. Her work has been featured on The Jealous Curator, and in 2018 her “Joined Elements” series received an Honorable Mention in the Prix de la Photographie Paris. See more of Fares’ work here.
Lim Miryang draws on the unseen forces of nature, such as the wind, to investigate the visual potential of energy and movement through painstakingly repetitious and emotive compositions. Lim’s work is held in collections throughout the United States, Europe, and China, and she has exhibited her work in numerous solo and group exhibitions in Seoul, South Korea, where she lives and works.
