I paint vehicles realistically. Many think of our cars and bikes as appliances, but I consider them mobile sculptures that reflect our personality. My paintings capture some of that personality with the vehicles from our past, or those we dream of one day driving.

Jacques Bodin (@jacquesbodin)
Jacques Bodin, painter, lives and works in Levallois Perret, France.
He is one of the main representatives of the European hyperrealist current.
He explores some favorite themes such as grass, fruits, hair, still lifes or vegetation treated with a genuine attention to detail.
The subjects are mostly treated in close-ups, under indirect lighting.
On the frontier of minimalism, some of his works bear witness to a conceptual aspect of hyperreality.
He is represented by Plus One gallery in London and State of the Arts gallery in Hong Kong.

Jennifer Balkan (@jenniferbalkan)
for the whole bio, check out my site: www.jenniferbalkan.net :).
My paintings are emotionally-based psychological narratives where the details lie in planes of color. I choose to exaggerate color, in a sense break up a color field into its constituent colors, directing the viewer to particular areas by applying juicy bits of heavily saturated color. I strive to capture emotional states more than anything else, purposefully laying strokes down to create the illusion of an outer physical topography that houses an inner one of the soul. Though it is a cerebral concept that motivates me, the process of painting is superior to all else.
Lauren Bergman (@lauren_bergman)
Lauren Bergman grew up in Washington, D.C., before relocating to Manhattan to study painting and design at Parson’s School of Design and The Art Students League in New York. Bergman's work probes a loss of cultural optimism and the ongoing irresolution of such post-feminist issues as sexuality versus intellectualism, passivity and acquiescence versus ambition. The work courts irony and the inner narratives are playful, yet confront the conflicting expectations of contemporary culture and the intricately complex ways in which we form our identities.
Bergman currently lives in Manhattan and her studio is at MANA Contemporary in Jersey City, NJ.

Alex J Dewars (@ajdewars)
Alex is a Scottish, figurative painter working almost exclusively in oil paint.
His work explores identity, hierarchies, patriotism and body politics .
The result often depicts romantic and nihilistic conclusions in a single suspended moment.
He works exclusively in oil because it ties him to 500 years of figure painting. In this rich history you can see themes which are repeated, are continuously relevant in modern civilization, and ripe for parody.
He has exhibited extensively in galleries throughout Scotland for over 10 years, including at the Royal Scottish Academy Annual Exhibition.
