Over the years Aida realized that much of the inspiration
for her pieces came from the randomness of her day-to-day life in Addis Ababa.
She was obsessed with capturing as many moments as possible and found
motivation from the light, the people, the streets, and all that she
encountered. The foundation of her visual language stems from her experiences
as a photojournalist. She uses this form because it offers her a visual
language to express her thoughts, emotions, and experiences. She also
draws inspiration from poetry to create her wonderful challenging works.
Vincent Beaurin creates a fusion of erosion and elegance in his highly identifiable, yet unclassifiable art pieces that combine abstraction and figuration. Year after year, he creates timeless, elegant pieces. He works alone, does not belong to any group and does not conform to any passing fad. Each of Beaurin’s works and exhibitions is a journey in which space is thought of and experienced as a landscape. Colour, the intimate relationship between light and shade, feeds his work more and more, bringing it closer to the plenitude and peace to which Beaurin, aspires and which his artworks already provide.
Meg Minkley is an artist unafraid of colours and “painting big”. She is a muralist, a colourist and an “imaginist.” Her creative career has harnessed the full spectrum of colour to make positive change, a platform to speak up for the underdog, and an outlet to create beautiful dreamscapes for the eyes to wonder in. Meg’s work covers many forms; making a drawing daily for several years, to speaking about the rights of women, and establishing a charity to support women in need, with art therapy and large-scale murals, in Australia and abroad.
