While working on hit records in the music industry has played a driving force in his career, it’s Vakseen’s (born Otha Davis III) passion for the arts that has served as his key to sanity in the fast paced entertainment business. The self-taught, Floridian has developed a distinct collage-influenced painting style (Vanity Pop) that fuses elements of cubism, photorealism, fashion design and pop surrealism into vibrantly alluring, abstract portraits.

I’m an Adelaide based figurative artist, working with oil on linen. My painting practice centres around the contemporary female experience. In my work I explore female culture, drawing inspiration from contemporary media such as fashion, magazines, film, music, poetry and everything weird and wonderful I see around me.

Obsessed with the seductive force of modern female icons, my colorist, expressionist, figurative paintings focus on the love/hate relationship of women, beauty, self worth and society.

My representational paintings are a celebration of color, light and form. The compositions exhibit formal aesthetic elements, and using soft pastels, I use a luminous and vibrant color palette that transform the formal foundation into an exciting and dynamic rendering. The work seeks to evoke the life-affirming beauty inherent in the natural world, and reveal what is extraordinary in the familiar. Ultimately, it’s not the subject matter that interests me, it's the tone, the gesture, color, light, scale and composition, that continue to absorb and inspire.

Since her graduation from the National Academy of art in Sofia, Tanya Atanasova has worked in several different media: painting, ceramics, sculptures and installations… She grew up in an environment where different artistic disciplines were in constant interaction. But although she has been drawing and painting all her life , she has only discovered her great passion for oil painting in 2016. Inspired, after visiting the studios/taking masterclasses by some of her most favorite contemporary artists - she decided to become a full time painter. . Dedicated to big size non-traditional portraits, she started weaving her waythrough contemporary realism.
