tracks in his bigger canvases. <br />In the paintings, he creates imageries with a miniature genre. <br />The artist claims the essence of the aesthetics in art, with a detail oriented look. <br />His use of light reveals the romantic attempts of his art view. <br />As a point of view, he feels more close to neo classic and neo orientalist art movements.<br />Hasan Kale joined in lots of art projects, interested in other designing areas &amp; options. <br />He has involved in jewellery design, prepared collections (Sur i Sultani, Black and White, Esinlenmeler) for well known Turkish brands. <br />Kale, by drawing onto micro objects, opens a new a perspective, tries to build up a new language in the art world. <br />He is also showing effort to transfer his knowledge to new generations through seminars and conferences in universities and proliferate in micro art by adding new objects to old ones.</div> <div><a href="" target="_blank">Gallery</a></div> <div></div> <div></div> <div><img src="/static/media/uploads/banafsheh/photo_2017-10-18_14-06-33.jpg" border="0" width="1080" height="1080" /></div> <div></div>Website AdminWed, 18 Oct 2017 14:12:18 +0330 of Drawings by Oriana Fenwick - Germany<div>Oriana Fenwick - Germany <br />Oriana Fenwick is an illustrator from Zimbabwe, currently living and working in Frankfurt, Germany.<br />Her drawings convey extreme love of detail. <br />Often embedded in abstract contexts her imagery brings unusual meanings through intense realism to the mundane.</div> <div><a href="" target="_blank">Gallery</a></div> <div></div> <div></div> <div><img src="/static/media/uploads/banafsheh/photo_2017-10-18_12-28-13.jpg" border="0" width="600" height="419" /></div>Website AdminWed, 18 Oct 2017 14:08:53 +0330 of Illustrations by Andrea De Santis - Italy<div>Andrea De Santis - Italy<br />Born in Brescia (Italy), in 1978, and I have always been a creative person.<br />After studying at the Art Institute in Italy, I worked for many years as graphic designer at many companies but the illustration has always been my real love.<br />Currently, I&rsquo;m a freelance illustrator and graphic designer with 15 years of<br />experience with predilection for the conceptual illustration.<br />I also like to work for different fields such as toys and fashion.<br />Lately I&rsquo;m working as illustrator for many important magazines located in New York,<br />and in a lot of nations around the world.</div> <div><a href="" target="_blank">Gallery</a></div> <div></div> <div></div> <div><img src="/static/media/uploads/banafsheh/photo_2017-10-18_11-55-01.jpg" border="0" width="600" height="600" /></div>Website AdminWed, 18 Oct 2017 11:59:21 +0330“The End of Terrorism&quot;
