Painting is silent poetry, and poetry is painting that speaks. Simonides

Robin F. Williams




Robin Williams was born in 1984 in Columbus, Ohio, and began making oil paintings before she had learned to sign her name. Soon after abandoning her aspirations of becoming a mermaid, she decided instead to become an artist when she grew up. Since then, she’s spent most of her time painting pictures, playing softball, and cooking. She’s a recent graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design and now resides in Brooklyn, New York.







Hellovon

Something different




"Hellovon's work is heavily influenced by the world of fashion, music and design which, combined with more traditional drawing and painting techniques, is then executed digitally introducing random textures and imagery. The result being both insightful and striking illustrations with an ethereal and delicate quality to them."


Von is the London based artist behind the award winning studio HelloVon and online gallery ShopVon.



Aung Kyaw Htet



Aung Kyaw Htet was born in Myaungmya and studied at the State School of Fine Arts in Yangon. He is a devout Buddhist and grew up in a small village -- two factors which have a strong influence on his art. Information about Buddhism in Myanmar can be found at dhammaweb.net. Over the past decade, Aung Kyaw Htet has quietly produced some of the most coherent, nuanced and resonant bodies of art works from Myanmar. While his depictions of novice monks and nuns may unleash questions about the slippery social environment of Myanmar and the role of romanticism under such conditions; he instead mobilises a reserved and ordered look into the inquiry of social isolation and spiritual identity with a contemporary emotional mannerism that represents these subjects as irredeemably human. Aung Kyaw Htet’s aesthetic is reservedly authored as his work explores an artistic intellectualism where composition and narrative are pitched together. He has participated in several exhibitions internationally such as in Thailand (2002, 2004, 2005, 2008), Singapore (2003, 2008, 2012) Hong Kong (2003, 2004), Taiwan (2006), India (2009), Dubai (2009), and Monaco (2010). His paintings are in the museum collections of the National Museum of Myanmar and the National Art Gallery of Malaysia.
