STANDOUT ARTISTS

Laura Jordan

United Kingdom


Laura Jordan (b.1984) is an acclaimed British illustrator who creates intricate, large-scale cityscapes. Not only is Laura’s work technically impressive, but she also manages to capture something of the heart and soul of the cities she depicts. Drawing in small sections, the artist builds up various scenes and features of a given city which she then knits together to produce the larger city scene.


Laura studied Graphic Design at the University of the Arts London. Laura has built up an international reputation, having exhibited her work in London, New York, Paris, Hong Kong and Singapore.



Akira Ishiguro

Japan


For Akira Ishiguro (b.1974), who has exhibited at many international art fairs, marble epitomises nature's beauty, transcribing ‘the line extracting the law of nature’ like sutras filling a canvas. It is also a symbol of wealth and power as seen in the marble covered buildings of the Roman Empire.

 

Akira Ishiguro's Marble painting series are drawn precisely to reproduce the real item. By doing this, Ishiguro echoes 19th century European ‘faux finish’ techniques and attempts to consider the ‘truth in the false’. In his recent series of Marblesque paintings, Ishiguro adopted a technique using ‘metamorphism by heat’, which multiplies the marble-generation process in creating more abstract impressionist works.


The Summer

Fang Chih Wei

Taiwan


Fang Chih Wei (b.1982) began painting animal imagery after graduating from the Chinese Culture University in 2009. In his evolution as an artist, Fang discovered the close relationship between the “home” of animals and the “home” of humans.

 

Inspired by the beauty of Japanese embroidery and the Rimpa style of Japanese painting, where vibrant colors are applied in a highly decorative and patterned manner, Fang delivers a specific kind of painting style, which is to paint with simple colours. As grey as the paintings look, they are impressive and catches everyone’s eye. Not only “the outside”, the shape, but also “the inside”, the feelings of the animals are conveyed in the paintings.
