In Romania also he gets awarded in Suceava, Tulcia, Bucuresti, Ploiesti and Braila.<br />His creations are held in private collections, in museums and other institutions representing caricature in the whole wild world, such as the Museum of Contemporary Art in Tehran, Museum of Caricature from Istanbul, Warsaw, the Collection of Satyrykon Foundation in Legnica, cartoon exhibition in Montreal, Canada, the Biennale of Caricature in Ceara, Brazilia.<br />Mihai&rsquo;s Ignat works are never failing from the biggest international cartoon competitions catalogues of the last years.</div> <div></div> <div><a href="" target="_blank">Gallery</a></div> <div></div> <div><img src="/static/media/uploads/Taheri/Mihai%20Ignat%20-%20Romania%201111111.jpg" border="0" width="800" height="1126" /></div>Website AdminWed, 19 Sep 2018 09:49:10 +0430 of Graphic Design by Ali Vazirian<div>Born in Tehran 1960, Ali Vazirian is a graduate of painting from the college of fine Arts at Tehran University. <br />He has created a great variety of works including posters, book and magazine design, signs and logotype etc., <br />and his works have been exhibited and introduced in various galleries and exhibitions. <br />He has founded two publications in the field of plastic and visual Arts and has made a career as a successful creative director. <br />His first collection of works in graphic design was published in 1990 and the sixth book of his works was printed in 2011.<br /> He is the director and founder of the" International Annual of Typography Poster exhibition, themed Asma-ul Husna" &amp; First Biennial Poster Typography in Tehran (November 2005).In addition he is active as a film director.</div> <div></div> <div><img src="/static/media/uploads/shojai/Ali-Vazirian.jpg" border="0" width="354" height="505" /></div> <div><br /> He made his debut short movie "Once Again Rain" in 2003 which was screened in the competitive sections of several major international film festivals in U.S.A, Australia, Sao Paulo of Brazil, Lebanon, United Kingdom, Japan, North Ireland and Canada. <br />This film won prizes as follows: Global Zoom Award (for the film that best promotes international understanding) at Cinema K: Seattle Children's Film Festival, 2007/ The Silver Elephant for Best Short Film, Hyderabad International Film Festival, 2005/ Special Jury Prize, Worldfest (Houston), 2005.

He paints oil, acrylic and watercolor, but watercolor is the technique that is working more in depth lately, since it is the medium that allows him to finish a work less time and obtain a more spontaneous result. <br />In Spain every weekend there are countless outdoor Fast Painting contests and Pablo finds in the watercolor the best way to complete those works in 3 or 4 hours. He likes to paint outdoors, and always carries with him his watercolors ready to paint or sketch anywhere. <br />During 2010 he won two of the most important prizes in Spain, one of them was El Retiro where more than 800 painters participated and won the first prize. <br />Another prize of special relevance was the painting of the Spanish Air Force. <br />Pablo takes great advantage of scenes and landscapes where other people do not see anything to paint, this is part of his art.<br />At the moment it compagina his work like artist with the classes of painting that imparts in the Municipal Schools of Carranque and Ugena (Toledo).</div> <div></div> <div><a href="" target="_blank">Gallery</a></div> <div></div> <div></div> <div><img src="/static/media/uploads/Banafsheh%201/Pablo%20Ruben%20Lopez%20-%20Spain%2011111.jpg" border="0" width="700" height="700" /></div>Website AdminMon, 17 Sep 2018 12:56:11 +0430 of Illustrations by Robbie Porter - UK<div>Robbie Porter - UK <br />Robbie Porter is a multi award winning Scottish illustrator currently getting lost in London. <br />His work is fun, simple &amp; conceptually driven. <br />He has worked with The New York Times, Virgin, Random House Publishing, New Scientist and Wired to name a few. <br />When he isn&rsquo;t drawing he can be found making lists and reading Calvin &amp; Hobbes.</div> <div></div> <div><a href="" target="_blank">Gallery&nbsp;</a></div> <div></div> <div><img src="/static/media/uploads/Banafsheh%201/Robbie%20Porter%20-%20UK%20111111.jpg" border="0" width="983" height="983" /></div> <div></div> <div></div>Website AdminMon, 17 Sep 2018 12:45:42 +0430 of PhotoMontages by William Kass - Brazil<div>William Kass - Brazil <br />William Kass is a photographer from 2013. <br />In his studio / studio, he produces written works based on Still Life. <br />His main work is the series MINIMIZE, among others.

By drawing with brush rather than pencil, Cook achieves the loose and free style that characterizes his work. Never belabored, each painting reflects his passion to catch a mood with the interplay of light and shade.<br />A recent feature article in Southwest Art Magazine (July &rsquo;08) refer red to his style as showing &ldquo;methodical spontaneity.&rdquo; Cook states, &ldquo;as for my style of painting, sometimes I feel the urgency to attack a canvas and capture the intensity of my emotions without adequate descriptive detail necessary for the image to be recognizable as representational art. <br />Eventually I return to the canvas and bring the vision to some semblance of clarity.&rdquo; As a young adult, John was first exposed to the works of Nicholai Fechin, whose impact and influence continues today. Other influences include John Singer Sargent&rsquo;s direct, fluid strokes, which inspired the spontaneous dashes of paint that give John&rsquo;s works their<br />dramatic surfaces and energetic compositions, Henry Fatin Latour&rsquo;s still life and floral paintings, which bring strong influences for color, texture, and composition, and F rank Brangwyn and Winslow Homer&rsquo;s watercolors. <br />Today John incorporates similar elements into his work and refuses to limit himself in subject matter.<br />F rom still life to portraits and landscapes, architecture, and his native-Texas western imagery, nothing is too small or too large for John to attempt as is demonstrated in his diverse range of subject matter. <br />T rips to London, Paris, Bruges, Venice, Rome, Florence, Portofino, St. Marguerite, San F rancisco and New York have inspired many of Cook&rsquo;s paintings and three one-man exhibitions at Dallas&rsquo; Victorian Gallery, several showings at Whistle Pik Gallery in F rederickburg, Texas, The Turquoise Tortoise Gallery in Tubac, Arizona, as well as Galerie Amsterdam in Carmel, California. Recently in 2009, Cook&rsquo;s eighth annual one-man show was held at the Southwest Gallery in Dallas. In November of<br />the same year John joined the Shaw Gallery in Naples F lorida. John&rsquo;s work has also shown at London&rsquo;s prestigious W.H. Patterson Gallery, with members of Parliament attending.<br />John was born in Dallas, Texas and attended school at the University of Texas at Arlington and the Art Center School in Los Angeles, where he received a Bachelor of Professional Arts Degree. <br />He mar ried his loving and supportive wife, Jean, in 1970 and has two children, Josh and Jade. John is also a proud &ldquo;Papa&rdquo; of three grandchildren, Asher, Shiloh and Avery. <br />A deeply spiritual and devoted family man, Cook insists, &ldquo;Painting is<br />not the most important thing, but I consider the ability to pursue painting for a living truly a special gift and blessing from God. <br />I regard Jesus, God&rsquo;s Son, the most important being in my life!.<br /> <p><a href="" target="_blank">Gallery</a></p> <p><img src="/static/media/uploads/Banafsheh%201/John%20Cook%20111111.jpg" border="0" width="500" height="776" /></p> </div>Website AdminMon, 17 Sep 2018 11:16:49 +0430 of Caricatures by Pablo Lobato - Argentina<div>Pablo Lobato - Argentina<br />Pablo Lobato, known simply as Pablo, began his career as a graphic designer after studying design at the National University of La Plata in Argentina. <br />After university, for the first five years of his career, he created editorial design for magazines. Pablo discovered graphic design wasn&rsquo;t his passion. <br />What he is passionate about is illustration.<br />Born in Trelew, Patagonia, Argentina, the 47-year-old illustrator chose to draw superheroes and medieval knights instead of playing soccer with his friends when he was young. <br />At the age of twelve, Pablo drew a portrait of the coach of the national soccer team in Argentina, Cesar Luis Menotti. The response to his drawing was overwhelming. Pablo discovered his true love: portraits.<br />Since the day he first began working as an illustrator, Pablo has never looked back.
