I’m Daria Hlazatova. I live in Ukraine and have a particular passion for drawing and making handmade collages. I live in a hilly city near Carpathian mountains, but the view from my window is rather dull.
As a child I dreamt to become an oceanologist, but I have only one marine diver and a dozen of artists in my family so my art genes won over.
I find inspiration in travelling, music, fairy-tales, theatre and animals. So my art is mostly about all these things put together with a wee bit of nonsense.
My drawings and collages have been a part of several exhibitions, art projects and magazines in the USA, the UK, Spain and Ukraine.

Hlazatova’s surreal machinations span imagination from queens and kings to pop culture references. She has built her own visual language and landscape for her visions to be set in space, rivers and the mountains. Her work can be found on Society 6 and Prisma Collective Txt

Choc en voyant les peintures de Hope Gangloff. Cette artiste new-yorkaise a accroché mon œil des que j’ai vu une de ses œuvres chez livreclem.tumblr.com . Un mélange entre les corps dégingandés et les chairs bleues d’Egon Schiele, le traitement des couleurs et motifs de Gustav Klimt, bref, un univers décadent très fin de siècle et une ultra moderne solitude dans les sujets : jeunes hipsters impavides, omniprésence des téléphones mobiles, des bières et magazines. Les “vieux jeunes” représentés semblent alanguis, comme en fin de soirées arrosées, pas très frais, mélancoliques, perdus dans des festivités peu joyeuses, gagnés par un vide que ne comblent ni les moyens de communication pourtant faciles, ni les divers psychotropes ingurgités. Au-delà de la justesse du portrait d’une génération que je connais bien, j’admire le talent de la peintre, sa façon de croiser couleurs criardes et regards éteints, de faire envahir le cadre par ces corps déployés, comme encombrés d’eux-mêmes. Malgré les couleurs, une peinture sombre, et très profonde à mon avis.

Artist on Tumblr

Robert Malte Engelsmann aka Kaeghoro | on Tumblr (Germany) - If you can’t see. 148 x 210 mm (2010)

Robert Malte Engelsmann aka Kaeghoro, is an emerging visual artist
and independent designer based in Berlin. Dynamic line drawing and mixed media painting on paper are the center of his artwork. Figures and characters play the leading role, while the abstraction challenges viewer’s perception: “When i draw, I let the line decide, let the line flow. I call this drawing process ‘flowstate-drawing’.”
