Sphaeralcea coccinea by Abbie Paulson

I am a multidisciplinary artist who enjoys exploring the natural world through a variety of mediums and experimenting with new techniques. My current work primarily makes use of printmaking, specifically using watercolours to create monotype forms.

Additionally, with my background in science, I try to create visually representative work that highlights the connection between these two fields.

Ayenia fruticosa by Daniela Guerra²

The work of Daniela Guerra² (Monterrey, 2000) indulges two main slopes which are communicated through space and materiality in mediums such as oil paint, drawing and sculpture. Her ideologic investigation and semiotic about the feminine body, particularly the vulva, allude to a collective womanly suffering that through corporality desmitifies the previous conceptions of the relation between body and sexuality and forces us to rethink this symbols as their own. On the other hand, her botanical investigations, pigmented of activism, advocate for the value of biodiversity of the flora and fauna in urban construction. The small details in her illustrations invite us to observe our surroundings through contemplation and symbiosis.


Adansonia sp. by Galadriel Watson

During a long career as a writer (for outlets like The New York Times and The Washington Post, alongside 24 children’s non-fiction books and the occasional published comic), Galadriel Watson recently decided to undertake a new creative outlet: linocutting. She adores the meditative aspect of the carving and finds it fascinating how the process adds so-called “flaws” during each step to create the unique, handmade final. So far her style is eclectic as she tries out different subjects and complexities. Her goal is to publish her artwork broadly and begin to sell it online and at fairs.

Sterculia quadrifida by Markiz Kras

I'm a Graphics student at Warsaw School of Information Technology in Poland. I take interest in a variety of mediums such as painting, graphics, digital, jewelry and for this artwork I choose acrylic paint. In my art, I like to cover topics of nature and human anatomy. I find visuals of biological structures to be thrilling to explore and deform. Stylistically, my main sources of inspiration are post-impressionism and fauvism.
