But once he began to photograph his large scale paintings to paint over them digitally in order to try new colors, compositions and ideas he quickly saw the liberating potential of working in a purely digital medium. <br />In 2005 he made the break from oil and made the move to exclusively painting digitally.<br />A pioneer in digital painting and the digital medium, he has developed a process and a style of art known as Living Art, a new method for art creation, art marketing, and art sales. <br />It features art that an artist never finishes, but rather, he or she lives with and continually works on throughout his or her life, selling updated versions of paintings to art patrons on line, in galleries and from one&rsquo;s own studio.<br />I live and work in my Los Angeles Studio.</p> <p><a href="" target="_blank">Gallery&nbsp;</a></p> <p><img src="/static/media/uploads/Banafsheh%201/Burton%20Gray%201-%20USA%201111.jpg" border="0" width="1000" height="1499" /></p>Website AdminWed, 16 Jan 2019 13:00:01 +0330 of Drawing &amp; Paitings By Bruce White - USA<div>Bruce White - USA<br />Velvet Geek is also known as Bruce White, a painter and tattoo artist. <br />I have been tattooing for over 17 years and in 2009 turned to another under appreciated medium: black velvet. <br />I feel that working with velvet gives my paintings a degree of visual contrast that cannot be replicated on any other surface. <br />I use this medium to channel my nerdy admiration for many of pop culture&rsquo;s most iconic characters. <br />My work has been in group shows at Gallery1988, Mondo Gallery, Spoke Art, Shades of Grey, Wootini, Gauntlet Gallery, and Hero Complex Gallery, in addition to four solo shows at Gallery1988.<br />My past client list includes Adult Swim, Funny or Die, HBO, FX, Comedy Central, Warner Brothers and New Line Cinema.<br />I received my BFA in Printmaking from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 1995.</div> <div></div> <div></div> <div><a href="" target="_blank">Gallery&nbsp;</a></div> <div></div> <div></div> <div></div> <div><img src="/static/media/uploads/Banafsheh%201/Bruce%20White%201-%20USA%201111111.jpg" border="0" width="800" height="480" /></div>Website AdminWed, 16 Jan 2019 11:57:35 +0330 of Paitings by Brian Mashburn - USA<div>Brian Mashburn - USA <br />Brian Mashburn is an American artist based in the mountains of North Carolina. <br />He studied at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, receiving a BFA in 2002. <br />Brian's work depicts urban and industrial landscapes in close proximity to the natural world. <br />Primarily an oil painter, Mashburn uses narrative and meticulous attention to detail to engage the viewer. <br />His work is informed by everyday observations as well as an interest in history, natural science, and philosophy. <br />Brian lives in Asheville, NC.</div> <div></div> <div></div> <div><a href="" target="_blank">Gallery</a></div> <div></div> <div></div> <div><img src="/static/media/uploads/Banafsheh%201/Brian%20Mashburn%201-%20USA%20%2011111111.jpg" border="0" width="800" height="533" /></div>Website AdminTue, 15 Jan 2019 12:42:03 +0330 of illustartions by Boris Groh - Russia<div>Boris Groh - Russia<br />Visual Necromancy The Amazing Art By Boris Groh<br />Boris Groh is one of my favorite artists, mostly because of his works that feature LARGE skeletons just doing their thing.</div> <div></div> <div></div> <div></div> <div><a href="" target="_blank">Gallery&nbsp;</a></div> <div></div> <div></div> <div></div> <div><img src="/static/media/uploads/Banafsheh%201/Boris%20Groh%201-%20Russia%201111111111.jpg" border="0" width="500" height="500" /></div>Website AdminTue, 15 Jan 2019 12:32:49 +0330 of Character desigen &amp; illustartions by Biry Sarkis - Brazil<div>Biry Sarkis - Brazil <br />Illustrations, Caxambu, Minas Gerais, Brazil<br />b.Sarkis illustrator created for children's books and magazines.<br />All the kids want some certain age to be without around to make art.<br />Biry Sarkis is an illustrator of children's books and adored the Tatu-ball itself.</div> <div></div> <div></div> <div><a href="" target="_blank">Gallery&nbsp;</a></div> <div></div> <div></div> <div></div> <div><img src="/static/media/uploads/Banafsheh%201/Biry%20Sarkis%201-%20Brazil%2011111111.jpg" border="0" width="600" height="600" /></div>Website AdminTue, 15 Jan 2019 12:20:07 +0330 of illustrations by Bartosz Kosowski - Poland<div>Bartosz Kosowski - Poland<br />I am an illustrator and poster artist based in Lodz, Poland. <br />I was educated at Strzeminski Academy of Fine Arts and Design. <br />Dealing mostly with posters, portraits and editorial illustrations, I have been lucky enough to create award winning posters for numerous films and I have cooperated with such clients as Legendary Pictures, Apple, Canal +, Orange, ING, "The New Yorker", "The Economist" "The New Republic", "The Hollywood Reporter", "Smithsonian", "Chicago Magazine", "Politico" and &ldquo;Newsweek&rdquo;.

Visually, some shapes may read closer but physically fall back. Each piece struggles to be viewed as an image and/or a sculpture and strains the laws of perspective. <br />This reflects the schism between the physical, describable self and the metaphysical. <br />Drawing inspiration from artists such as Cai Guo Xian, Lui-Shou Kwan, and Anselm Kiefer I continue to explore new media and techniques. Each piece is very process driven. <br />I will start with a sketch or simply an idea and as I work with it, a conversation forms eventually precipitating a final image usually far from the original prospect. <br />I am not only communicating through my art but with it. 'Mistakes' are simply part of the discussion with the piece as it forms. In "Condition I" I began with a heavy layer of paint that I partially spray painted. <br />After letting the paint drip and dry, I had a new image and texture I had not planned on. <br />The colors and division of the space were chosen in reaction to this partially Chance directed means of mark-making. <br />After adding the center orange rectangle (its complimentary color and its symmetry meant to evoke a sense of power), I added a textured border to balance the physical weight without changing the compositional weight. <br />It isn't until an artwork reaches a point of resonance to my image of and emotion about the piece that I consider it complete.</div> <div></div> <div></div> <div><a href="" target="_blank">Gallery&nbsp;</a></div> <div></div> <div></div> <div><img src="/static/media/uploads/Banafsheh%201/Andrew%20Robinson%201%20-%20USA%2011111.jpg" border="0" /></div>Website AdminMon, 14 Jan 2019 11:56:30 +0330 of Paitings by Andrea Ventura – Italy<div>Andrea Ventura - Italy <br />Andrea Ventura, born in Paris, from italian parents in 1968, moved to New York in 1991. <br />His work has been published in The New York Times, The New Yorker, Rolling Stone, Time, Newsweek and many other national and international newspapers, magazines and books. <br />His awards include gold and silver medals from The Society of Illustrators for his portraits of Latrell Sprewell, Jorge Luis Borges and Glenn Gould and a gold medal at the Lead Awards 2010.

Terenin began his career as a painter in 1992 with shows at the prestigious Moscow galleries, Art Moderne and M&rsquo;Ars. <br />Although Terenin has never practiced as an architect, the training he received is evident in much of his work. His gothic inspired structures are clearly influenced by his adoptive city. Terenin&rsquo;s world is a rich mixture of both the old East and modern West. He sees his work as reflecting the conditions of modern man, yet his work is full of Biblical references as well as Russian literature. <br />One cannot escape a distinct sense of history in his work. But, whose history? This world of dreamy stillness, at times, reminiscent of the work of Balthus, is somehow strangely familiar. As though Terenin has tapped into a collective consciousness, of a time and place we have all visited but cannot quite remember. <br />Alexey Terenin now divides his time between, Prague and Moscow.<br />Terenin has show in galleries all over the world, including Moscow, Prague, London, Dublin, Rome, Paris, Tokyo and now Norfolk. <br />His work can be found, in both private, and corporate collections in Australia, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Holland, Switzerland, Belgium, Luxembourg, Ireland, Hong Kong, Israel, Italy, Japan, Korea, New Zealand, Russia, Spain, U.K. and in the U.S.A.</div> <div></div> <div></div> <div><a href="" target="_blank">Gallery&nbsp;</a></div> <div></div> <div></div> <div><img src="/static/media/uploads/Banafsheh%201/Alexey%20Terenin%201-%20Russia%2011111.jpg" border="0" width="1197" height="798" /></div>Website AdminSun, 13 Jan 2019 10:17:34 +0330 of Darwing &amp; illustartions by Alex G - Spain<div>Alex G - Spain<br />My name is Alex G. <br />I&acute;m a vector illustrator &amp; graphic designer.<br />I work for advertisement agencies &amp; studios, magazines, fashion brands and all kind of clients. <br />Also, I often participate in exhibitions &amp; collective projects in different art galleries around the world: Gauntlet Gallery (San Francisco), ArtHouse Soho (New York), House of Vans (London), Pepita Lumier (Valencia), among others.<br />CLIENTS<br />Warner Bros, NIKE, Newsweek, Red Bull, ESPN, FIFA, FOX, Nintendo, Bacardi, Variety, Fortune, Forbes, Harper&acute;s Bazaar, The Hollywood Reporter, Entertainment Weekly, GQ France, Popular Mechanics, Adweek, MC Saatchi, Yorokobu, Howler Magazine, 8by8 Magazine, Eurobet, Surge Polonia, AMP (Alternative Movie Posters), Cambio16, Cinemania, Todopoderosos, Fast Company, First Round, AKQA, Phillips 66 Lubricants, El Espanol, Imborrable, St.Louis Magazine, Golf Digest, El Pais TENTACIONES, Expansion, among others.</div> <div></div> <div></div> <div><a href="" target="_blank">Gallery&nbsp;</a></div> <div></div> <div></div> <div><img src="/static/media/uploads/Banafsheh%201/Alex%20G%20-%20Spain%20%20111111111111111111111.png" border="0" /></div>Website AdminSun, 13 Jan 2019 09:59:07 +0330 of illustrations by Alex Andreyev - Russia<div>Alex Andreyev - Russia<br />Russian artist Alex Andreyev imagines alternate realities in his amazing digital paintings of ethereal scenarios.<br />my name is Alex Andreyev. <br />I'm an artist living in Saint Petersburg. <br />I've been draving, painting and doing graphic design over last 20 years. <br />My last project is an animated film Koo Kin Dza Dza (senior concept artist), the winner of the Asia Pacific Screen Awards 2013 (best animated film).</div> <div></div> <div></div> <div><a href="" target="_blank">Gallery</a></div> <div></div> <div></div> <div><img src="/static/media/uploads/Banafsheh%201/Alex%20Andreyev%201-%20Russia%2011111.jpg" border="0" width="1080" height="1081" /></div>Website AdminSun, 13 Jan 2019 09:38:46 +0330 of Paitings by Akira Beard - USA<div>Akira Beard - USA<br />Making pictures is one of the earliest memories I recall. <br />Before learning to write the alphabet I was drawing from my imagination in crayons. <br />And over all the years that followed, there has never been a period where I didn&rsquo;t continue the practice. <br />I remember for example just after graduating high school and living on my own as a dishwasher with no ambitions in life but to get drunk and high. <br />But when the party was over I would be in the kitchen of a house I didn&rsquo;t live in, drawing past dawn. <br />Or even when I was a student at the University of California Berkeley, on my way towards a corporate life, having never conceived even the possibility where art could be a profession, I filled my notebooks not with words from lectures, but with sketches of teachers and classmates. <br />And though later I would become a &lsquo;professional artist&rsquo;, I sometimes look back at such moments if confused with the roots of my creativity. <br />It started purely as an act of autonomy, where nothing outside myself influenced or affected it. I simply drew because I enjoyed it above all else. <br />Sure, like anyone I&rsquo;ve had plenty of typical life experiences that have brought their own joy, but nothing compares in consistency and meaningfullness that making art has provided. Even during those unavoidable periods with living that challenge us most, drastic life change/loss/death, art has functioned as a medium with giving meaning to suffering, transforming it into an experience with healing. <br />This I hope, begins to describe the art I make. <br />The drawings and paintings you see on this site, are similar to snapshots with the lens pointed in Life's direction with penetrating force. <br />I hope you enjoy any of what's reflected back.

We have created a dynamic and inventive environment in which visitors can see, learn about, and experience the endless possibilities surrounding visual art. <br />Our goal is to become a vital cultural resource that is accessible to the entire community. <br />The Adam Lister Gallery believes that fostering the creative impulses of people will provide an outlet for imagination and open mindedness. <br />We look to offer the viewing public the chance to gain a greater appreciation and understanding of the visual arts. <br />The gallery is located in the front section of The SPACE.
