After exploring different areas of art, she set her sights on concept art and illustration. She is currently a junior at the Academy of Art majoring in illustration. Julia finds inspiration all around her through her creative peers and the flourishing city itself.

Selected works by OğuzhanCürgü aka KalbiCamdan 21-year-old amateur photographer from Samsun, Turkey.I take the pictures with no ideas about their last position. I don’t like the thinking while takeing picture. I feel the machine like one part of my body and then I take it in a camposition with my daily or weekly experiences. It happens like that.selected by Tu recepcja
Igor Skaletsky aka igorska born 1978 in Voronezh, Russia is a painter/collage artist. He studied at the Surikov Moscow State Academic Art Institute and began his adventures in collage only a few years ago. In 1990 Skaletsky immigrated to Israel.
Skaletsky combines traditional painting techniques with contemporary technologies. He draws his inspiration from iconic art works, and gives them his own modern interpretation, thus creating a hybrid image separated from time, place and context.
Collage for me is a technique that widens possibilities to express myself. I think photography and painting perfectly complement each other and combining them, one can achieve an effect which is impossible in ”pure” traditional technique. Collage is unique in its ability to organically combine things which, at first glance, are absolutely incompatible and do not represent any artistic value in themselves. I like the moment when isolated pieces of paper suddenly start “playing” with each other when I put them in the common living space of collage.
