1981 - Francisco Tejada Nacion Jr.was born in Kalibo, Aklan. Despite majoring in Computer Engineering at the University of Baguio, he nonetheless pursued art studies while in college. 2006 - he started to apprentice with Mr Fernando Sena. 2007 - he joined the Saturday Group of Artist, which includes Mauro Malang Santos, whom he much admires. The themes of his works show his love and pride for his country and its culture. When you look closely at the characters in his paintings; you will see a bright side and a dark side of the faces. These signify both the positive and negative outlook of a person. Upon more profound contemplation the principal attraction is the light or bright side. It reflects the excellent Filipino traits of patience, kindness and being loving. Whenever the sun and the moon are represented, the sun is gold, and the planet is silver. These large celestial bodies symbolise TIME…time is valuable and should not be wasted. Francis believes that time must be used to do positive actions to make one’s dreams come true. “With the good traits of a Filipino with hard work and good use of time, We Filipinos can look forward to a brighter and happier life. I want to show the world that the Filipino artist can be at par with the best in the world” he says. To this day, this young artist continues to develop his unique style, characterised by etching and scraping to produce special textural effects. The artist prepares well for his works, carefully researching Filipino art designs which he incorporates in his paintings. An example of this is the colourful materials woven by ethnic groups in Zamboanga, which he has represented in his paintings, showing strong visual appeal because of its brilliant hues. He continues to research ethnic art from different regions in the country, focusing on the happy mix of vivid colours. He inspired by the rich culture of the Philippines and paints traditional subjects like mother and child, father and son, market vendors, Lovers, Christmas carollers- picturing familiar sights in the Philippines folklife. With a positive outlook on life, he makes sure these viewpoints is infused in his works. The information is drawn from galeriestephanie.com.

Imran Nur-Ali is a mystic from painting. An artist by education, one day he felt more than an artist. According to him, the same fracture occurred with him on the day of the death of Salvador Dali. He had a vision that he should become the successor of this great painter in his mission on Earth. Since that time, Imran Nur-Ali has not just gone into painting on the path of surrealism - he walked the footsteps of Salvador Dali, using his manner, which, in the context of all that Imran Nur-Ali tells, is a kind of key to some higher knowledge. However, the system of symbols of Imran Nur-Ali has its own, and the themes of its homeland - Azerbaijan are actively interwoven in it. The scenes of his paintings Imran Nur-Ali sees, in his words, in a dream - after that he can only transfer to the canvas what he saw. His exhibition Imran Nur-Ali devoted three works of Salvador Dali - "Geopolitical child watches the birth of a new man" (1943), "Meninas" (1960) and "Battle of Tetuan" (1962). The Azerbaijani artist claims that in the first of these paintings a prophecy concerning himself was given. From an egg depicted in the form of an earthly planet, a middle-aged man appears, and a woman in the picture points to the birthplace of this person - this is Azerbaijan. "A certain mission was assigned to Salvador Dali, and I am the continuer of this program. There will be only four artists with such a mission, "Imran Nur-Ali shares his revelation. He says that the coming to the world of four artists is predicted by each of them about the next. Thus, Dali predicted the arrival of Imran Nur-Ali in the world, and Imran Nur-Ali in his work "The Birth of a New Man" gives the viewer information about the third artist, who, he said, will be born in Brazil. "Through my paintings, the Brazilian artist will prove that he is the third artist," explains Imran Nur-Ali. "And he, in turn, will leave pictures for the fourth artist, who will be born in Nepal."
Khurshid Ziyakhanov was born in 1958 in Tashkent, Uzbekistan. In 1987 he finished the Theatrical Institute, where he studied graphic design. Since then he has worked as a graphics designer for publishing houses. He has also taken part in various exhibitions in his home country and abroad. Khurshid's originality began to blossom in the early Nineties when the artist dedicated himself entirely to painting. He quickly found his style in the spectrum of modem art of Uzbekistan. His pictures of this period, which we carry, display his free spirit. Being attracted to different artistic ideas, Khurshid found an exciting interpretation of surrealism and cubism for expressing the East in historical and mythological settings. The style has its origins in the fusion of the avant-garde art of the 20th century and the rich tradition of folkloric dance.

Artist’s style is slightly different from realism to abstractionism, from classical to impressionist manner that is understandable, because the world is so diverse, and portraying all its aspects in one vein is simply impossible.

It shows us a calm, contemplated beauty, filled with the harmony of colour and bright elements. Creating her works, Tamilla Gasanova hopes to bring beauty, joy and peace to people's lives, because modern art contributes to the development of such qualities as tolerance, tolerant attitude to dissent. It always says: there is another opinion, there are other people.

Two years later, she moved to Italy, got married and began teaching art there. But Volha's real passion was in painting, and that's what she started to do. Volha has already held exhibitions in South Tyrol, North Italy, and Regensburg (Regensburg), Germany. Experts say that the work of a young artist is typically characterised by genre diversity, different techniques, e.g., landscapes, still life, animalistic work in abstract art, works of different methods (oil, acrylic, straws, pastel, graphics, etc.). Volha's speciality is portraits; indeed, her portraits of famous personalities is what she is most famous. The artist herself considers her portrait of then-Pope Benedict her favourite. Volha managed to get an audience with Georg Ratzinger, the then-Pope's brother, who liked the picture. He even declared that Volha's portrait of the Pope was the best portrait of the Pope ever done. In July 2011, Volha gave the work the right hand of Benedict prelate Wachter. He promised that the film would go on display at the Vatican. Another exciting event was the meeting with Princess Gloria von Thurn und Taxis in her castle St. Emmeram at Regensburg in Germany. Princess Gloria is a representative of old German aristocracy, and her villa is a real open-air museum. Volha presented her a titled portrait. The press in Italy and Germany have carried several articles on the works of Volha Bazylevoy, with the writers noting how his works portray the Belarusian soul. The artist currently lives in Singapore. Portraits of famous personalities: 1. Luis Durnwalder is a politician of Italy, former governor of the autonomous province of South Tyrol from 1989 until 2014, and vice-president of Trentino-Alto Adige/Südtirol, in Northern Italy. 2.
