Joachim Lehrer knows the reality and chooses the dreams. He drove lorries for his living in two years of business. After that he studied electrical engineering, changed to the realm of german philology, history of art and rhetoric, began to work in the silence, since 1983 he lives as free artist.

He paints minute: exact, patient, carefully. He applies glazes, layer by layer with transparent stale. Not a layer covers another.

Light will be catched, depth convey. Mobile technic is an object, however his automotices reached their final destination. Wrecks in photo realistic nature? Certainly not, Lehrers nature derive from a fairy world. Past masterly he paints with details, combines with fantastic landscapes: surreal, odd, gorgeous.

Korney Violin is a 16 year old self taught graphic artist from Barcelona. During certain period of time, he thought using other people’s stocks in his art was wrong. In the summer of 2013 he decided to learn how to properly use a camera to shoot fresh material for future projects. This turned into a pretty amateur 40 picture album of places he spent in Russia. River of Seconds is the sequel to that album. It contains 39 pictures shot in RAW format and adapted to 4k resolution. See the rest of the pictures on Tumblr at riverofseconds.

Born in Wexford, Jimmy Lawlor now lives and works in Mayo. Initially working in the field of Illustration, Jimmy opted to devote all of his time to a career in fine art painting in the late 1990s. He has since exhibited extensively in galleries throughout Ireland and had many images published alongside magazine articles and advertisements.
Jimmy’s work derives its inspiration from his pastoral surroundings. He presents familiar scenes of rural Ireland: the people, towns, landscapes and animals, but with a humorous twist; often illustrating literal transcriptions of colloquial expressions.  via Oisín Gallery
