Eva Gajda(from Hungary) lives and works near Cambridge. She likes to show her art on different forms of “canvas”. She studied art, teaching and agricultural engineering in Budapest. She has used the usual mediums to paint on but has found a particular liking to painting on reclaimed wood, keeping to her belief in giving “life” to old discarded wood. Currently she is using old sheets of music as a new form of canvas for her painting. She paints what makes her happy, or sad and hopes that her work brings out emotions in others.
“Creating is always on my mind. My passion is creating interesting and unique art especially on wood. I find wood stimulates my senses as it is very tactile and I encourage people to touch as well as look”
Eva Gajda is exhibiting in ART IN MIND; INEVITABLE at The Brick Lane Gallery - The Annexe from 27th November - 7th December 2014. To find out more about ART IN MIND or to exhibit in a future exhibition please email email@example.com
I am happy with how this painting has turned out. I think I managed to get a good skin tone and a good colour for the hair. To improve this image I would have tried to draw the body more accurately as I feel some of the proportions are off especially the right hip bone.
Lily Frydman(from Switzerland) graduated from Emerson College in 2011 with a BA in visual and media arts. The focus of her undergraduate work was 3D animation. Although she studied in a film school she consistently used her paintings and drawings as a source of inspiration for her experimental videos. After graduation she felt strongly about pursuing her artistic career and spending time developing her skills as a fine artist. Ever since, she has been experimenting with all kinds of 2D mediums. She tends to gravitate towards un-primed linen and paper. In 2012 she completed several short courses at Central St Martins in drawing, photography, and entrepreneurship. Over the last two years she has been working on commissioned paintings and developing her portfolio. One of her paintings was short listed for the Threadneedle prize 2013 and she has had the opportunity to feature one of her films on the Tate Collectives website.
Travel Journals, are black ink on paper. They sometimes include words but are mostly abstract shapes. The size she chose is a square shaped paper because it creates a perfect balance. In a way her journal drawings are close to mandalas, spiritual and meditative. She believes there is something spiritually enriching about traveling and discovering new cultures. It is like being reminded of the grandeur of this planet and remembering the reality of being united as one race while appreciating the sometimes radically different ideologies, beliefs and traditions that come with each one of them.
Lily Frydman is currently exhibiting in WORKS ON PAPER at The Brick Lane Gallery from 29th October - 9th November 2014. To find out more about WORKS ON PAPER or to exhibit in a future exhibition please email firstname.lastname@example.org
