The theme of exhibition is an artistic reflection of the other "shadow" part of European life in present and past. Including esoteric traditions in culture as kabbalah and Alchemy and their influence on modern culture.
Sunset on Atlantic Ocean painting by Alex Solodov - featured as Art of the Day on Artfinder.com
«Inner Ocean» serie of paintings that has been created in beautiful surrounding of Atlantic Coast in Portugal. In impressive place where creative process is strong influenced by the nature. In our times of high speed, stresses and new technologies we prefer to think that our language is a language of text (to talk by phone, message, e-mail etc.).

After several months of living in Portugal, with the long period of adaptation to the new condition of life, I would like to write about the recent art event, that I went in Sintra (beautiful old town near Lisbon) - World Press Cartoon 2013.
On the Edge - ink painting by Alex Solodov
Ink painting from Fashion Art – the serie of original artworks by expressionist artist Alex Solodov. Paintings from this serie are based on photographs from fashion shows. The image of the model for the artist is a starting point for creation of expressionist art. Created in traditional Japanese sumi-e wash painting technique with Chinese inks on archival paper.
"Ink paintings by Alex Solodov are mostly the portraits. In process of painting they are transformed into surreal images of “invaders” which can exist only between dream and reality."
Thomas Donaldson - an English painter based in Asia.
His visceral works address political, sexual and ethical values. The works utilize the human figure/head juxtaposed with abstract mark making, which question moral implications of a consumer and self-obsessed driven culture. His work is committed to continual development and re-evaluation of his practice and is marked by a willingness to reconsider and question his process during production, giving the work an excitement and flair supported by rigorous execution.
