Nini Baseema Contributor

By Nini Baseema in New Art on Tuesday 10 July 2012

Deenesh Ghyczy is a German-Hungarian artist currently residing in Berlin. He has come up with a series of portraits capturing people as if they were seen through patterned glass. ‘For a long time now, we ceased having a core identity, as such. We are many people, with different identities and different personalities’, he says. The paintings are currently exhibited in Istanbul, Ankara and Cologne.

Todd Towler Reader Find

By Todd Towler in New Art on Saturday 27 August 2011

The paintings of Betzi Pipis capture the female face like no other. She achieves a remarkable depth of color that she either provokes with drippings or sedates with watercolor. From the tortured to the paroxysmal, Betzi’s technique delivers the rawest sense of emotion.

Street Kids photo series by Adam Taylor

Michelle Wilding Reader Find

By Michelle Wilding in New Photography on Saturday 11 June 2011

Street Kids is a portraiture series by photographer Adam Taylor that captures the gruelling hardships young people face while living on the streets. His initial shooting in New York City was so successful that he headed to Sydney to discover the same problem: a generation of youth missing a sense of belonging because they are the fall-outs of social and economic change. Where else can they go other than congregating in the city every night to find solace?

Netherlands-based artist Jacob de Graaf spent eight months in 2010 drawing one portrait a day of very dapper men and posted them to his blog. It was really something to look forward to, seeing the classic, antiquated faces and wondering who they are and what do they do.

By Gerry Mak in New Art on Tuesday 6 July 2010

It’s often assumed that great artists were born that way, which really isn’t true usually. Buddy Nestor, for instance, didn’t really start painting until the birth of his son in 1997. Now he’s a prolific painter, creating really demented portraits of women. I hope that’s not an indication of how he feels about his son.

Zolton Editor

By Zolton in New Art on Saturday 12 December 2009

Amazing! That’s about the only word that could be used to describe the work of young Californian artist, Danny Roberts. He studied Photography at Cal Poly SLO, and then Fashion Design at the Academy of Art in San Francisco. Of his work, he says: ‘When I was five, I convinced myself that pouring mud onto cardboard was how to make concrete. I began drawing as a young child, but it wasn’t until a few years ago, when I decided to practice everyday, that I started getting better’.
