Although still studying at Granada’s Fine Arts University, Spain, Luna Nother has already had exhibitions in Germany, France and Spain, worked as a print maker in Spain and as a muralist in places like Berlin or India. Her latest works evolve around nostalgic atmospheres and situations she narrates as a memory or a dream full of her own life experiences. Old books, papers, antique glass bottles or even windows work as a canvas for her very personal language, what she calls “my own iconografic dictionary”.

A native of New Haven. Connecticut, Paul Fappiano graduated from the U. of New Haven, with an AS in Commerical Art, Cal. State Northridge with a BA in Fine Art and Southern Conn. St. U with a MS in Art Education. He taught in the public schools of Connecticut and ceramics at the U. of New Haven.

Earlier works centered on the use of the potter’s wheel and thrown forms. His current works are a combination of his interest in the human form and ecology; the focus, now, is hand building with slabs, in low fire clay employing metallic patinas on the exterior. The Hand of Man series began in February, 2011 and continues to stretch his visual creativity. These 3 dimensional statements speak to the need for humanity to preserve the elements around us that support and nourish our existence.

Lee Harvey Roswell is a self-taught artist from Freefall, New York, whose work is noted for its blend of angst and humor. Themes of death and entropy, tribulation and futility run amok in his distinctly surreal, often-slapstick/ often-nightmarish world. The result is at once mocking and melancholic. For the past decade plus his attention has turned almost exclusively to oil painting, though it’s always a surprise what direction he’ll steer things next. Lee now lives in San Francisco, and his work is shown, collected and published internationally.

"In a cavernous hall, white and empty, one hundred people stand, immobile and silent, facing one of the massive walls, staring at the overwhelming white void. One of them wades through the crowd and traces a few lines on the wall, breaking the silence, violating its whiteness, and perturbing the stillness of all those present. A murmur rises from the ranks, braiding voices tinged with a repressed mixture of indifference, joy, disgust and bewilderment. The artist continues tracing lines with renewed intent. This is the risk posed by artistic and personal self-expression: to approach the void, alone, breaking it, in the presence of those who dare not shed their fearful stillness. These lines are "literature," and visual arts are not literature … the image must tell the story - if there is any - without commentary.

María Capulino feels the urge to approach that white wall and shatter its silence, without literature, and she shatters it – she has been doing that for years, as fashion designer, entrepreneur and artist … fearlessly."

I am a painter and photographer, I have a Philosophy degree from University of Granada. I have taken classes in painting, engraving and decorating from Escuela de Artes de Almería. I like to show in group shows and alternative free spaces, like bars, restaurants, shops, hotels or anywhere. I am a little secretive as a painter and I don't like to describe myself as an artist, I leave that to La Pantoja.

J.Serón studied at the Facultad de Bellas Artes de Granada, Spain, and at the Accademia di Belle Arti di Firence, Italy. His work is multidiscuplinar: from painting and drawing to sculpture and video. Currently his projections are being shown in the Zoomoozoom Project which is touring various European cities. He has presented his work in several exhibitions and collaborations with festivals in Italy, France, Spain, Uruguay, Holland and Germany. His work is in private collections in the USA, Germany, Colombia, Spain and Italy. With the series Nets, the artist continues a search without targets through the pictorial labyrinths of abstraction. They seem like undecipherable maps or crystal formations nourished by the uncertainty of the artist facing his creation. The support for these pieces are antique official documents from the XIXth century Germany, found by the artist in an abandoned building in Munich where he started with the studies for the series that he now continues to evolve from his present studio in an old Sugar Factory in Granada.
