STEFAN BLEYL born 1989, Germany
Painting and drawing is food for me since I can think.
At first I started with writing some poems at the age of 17, these work inspired me very well to my first own drawings in 2008. Out of it I create my first paintings in a smooth transition.
My inspiration for my pictures is very variegatet, so I can list you some basic points:
- german romantic literature/poems (especially Novalis)
- all kinds of tales and the northern mythologie (Edda, Tolkien ...)
- music (especially Dornenreich, Helrunar, Nocte obducta,Drang, Drautran)
- other Artists (especially Z. Beksinski)
Putting to canvas the instant in which Dreams converge and abscond with Reality is Claudia Giraudo’s current priority. Born in 1974 in Turin, where she currently resides and actively collaborates with the Bottega Indaco studio, Claudia began an introspective study after receiving her diploma from the Albertina Academy of Fine Arts in 2001 concentrating on the face as an intermediary messenger. Partially involving her personal experiences, combined with a message to decipher, as though the artist communicates through an unknown tongue, the viewer is required to translate through his or her own personal knowledge and experiences. By means of her symbols, Claudia gently places subjects on canvas who, as messengers, appear ethereal, evanescent, sprites of the air, and within the air, so thin and impalpable that they each deliquesce. Like actors unaware of the role they engage, Claudia Giraudo’s characters move upon a backcloth animated by matter that is also oneiric, almost as though to remind us that we, too, are made of the same material as dreams; and our brief lifetimes are but enclosed within the space and time of a dream
She frequently exibiths on art fairs, private galleries and institutional public places. Her works also are in permanent collections at "Museo Eusebio" of the municipality of Alba (Cn) and at "Sala del Consiglio" of the municipality of Bossolasco (Cn).
Born in Oporto - Portugal, February 6th,1974.
Degree in Fine Arts - Painting, FBAUP, 1998.
Masters in Painting at FBAUP (University of Fine Arts of Porto)
In 2011 she obtained a scholarship from FADEUP in cooperation with the Calouste Gulbenkian.
The theme of my work is about my life, about myself and my beliefs. I explore in my work the self-representation in the looking for my inner self, my self-portrait.
