“Who Art You? is an International contest for young rising artists, a singular event open to artists, art dealers, journalists and critics to act as a springboard in the difficult business of the arts.
The show, at its second edition with the Patronage of Milan Municipality, Show, Fashion and Design Departments for young Creativity, was born for the growing need of releasing a new generation of creative young people. It will be held on May 24th 2013 in Milanwith the partnership with Carlsberg, Perrier and Red Bull, between the most famous and well-know companies in the world. That city has become the symbol of a new and fresh talent, it is the place where people feel a creative will to overcome their limits as never as before.
Who Art You?2 will be a collective exhibition of 60 artists in a joyful and surreal atmosphere with new sounds and visual entertainment, different perspectives and materials. And first of all a social and cultural mix: it is going to be a huge art marathon.
20 paintings, 20 photos, 10 videos and 10 sculptures: only one final winner in each category, chosen by the contest judges (well known art dealers, artists, photographers and video-makers) during the event.
4 winners, one for each category, will be able to exhibit their portfolio artworks for a one week exposition in a famous art gallery in Milan during September 2013.

4+°C is one of 14 artworks in the multimedia exhibition Carbon Footprints – with art by Unda Arte and music by Armand Gutheim – shown in Portugal, February 1-17, 2013. The main theme concerns the environment and our lifestyle, explicitly and implicitly…
If this photograph had one, single keyword, it would be denial. The 4°C (39.2°F) scenarios, emphasized by an increasing number of scientists, are devastating. To quote a World Bank report from 2012, these scenarios will imply: “…the inundation of coastal cities; increasing risks for food production potentially leading to higher malnutrition rates; dry regions becoming dryer, wet regions wetter; unprecedented heat waves in many regions, especially in the tropics; substantially exacerbated water scarcity in many regions; increased frequency of high-intensity tropical cyclones; and irreversible loss of biodiversity…” Time for action or inaction?
33 YEARS OF PAINTING FROM SANTIAGO RIBEIRO – 2013 we are now in the new age of internet, freedom of thinking and creation, free idiologies – make a travel by the dreams
Born in 1974 to an English father and Guyanese mother, Taylor grew up in Europe and Asia, where he spent much of his early childhood exploring the coral reefs of Malaysia. Educated in the South East of England, Taylor graduated from the London Institute of Arts in 1998 with a BA Honours in Sculpture and went on to become a fully qualified diving instructor and underwater naturalist. With over 17 years diving experience under his belt, Taylor is also an award winning underwater photographer, famous for his dramatic images, which capture the metamorphosing effects of the ocean on his evolving sculptures.
In 2006, Taylor founded and created the world’s first underwater sculpture park. Situated off the coast of Grenada in the West Indies it is now listed as one of the Top 25 Wonders of the World by National Geographic. His latest creation is MUSA (Museo Subaquatico de Arte), a monumental museum with a collection of over 450 public sculptural works, submerged off the coast of Cancun, Mexico; described by Forbes as one of the world’s most unique travel destinations. Both these ambitious, permanent public works have a practical, functional aspect, facilitating positive interactions between people and fragile underwater habitats while at the same relieving pressure on natural resources.
Taylor’s art is like no other, a paradox of creation, constructed to be assimilated by the ocean and transformed from inert objects into living breathing coral reefs, portraying human intervention as both positive and life-encouraging. Numerous publications and documentaries have featured his extraordinary work, including the BBC, CNN, USA Today, the Guardian, Vogue, New Scientist and the Discovery Channel, yet nothing can quite do justice to the ephemeral nature of his art; for each actual visit to his sites is both unique and subject to the dynamic, fluctuating environment of the ocean.
Jason deCaires Taylor is an internationally acclaimed eco-sculptor who creates underwater living sculptures, offering viewers mysterious, ephemeral encounters and fleeting glimmers of another world where art develops from the effects of nature on the efforts of man. His site-specific, permanent installations are designed to act as artificial reefs, attracting corals, increasing marine biomass and aggregating fish species, while crucially diverting tourists away from fragile natural reefs and thus providing space for natural rejuvenation. Subject to the abstract metamorphosis of the underwater environment, his works symbolize a striking symbiosis between man and nature, balancing messages of hope and loss.
Taylor’s sculptures change over time with the effects of their environment. These factors create a living aspect to the works, which would be impossible to reproduce artificially. As time passes and the works develop biological growth, they redefine the underwater landscape, evolving within the narrative of nature.
Taylor’s interventions instigate organic growth and transformation. Taylor states, “It’s environmental evolution, art intervention as growth, or a balancing of relationships.” Taylor’s most ambitious work to date — The Silent Evolution (2010), forms a permanent monumental artificial reef in Mexico. Occupying an area of over 420 square meters and with a total weight of over 200 tons, it consists of 400 life-size casts of individuals taken from a broad cross section of humanity and has been designed to aggregate fish and corals on a grand scale. Slowly but surely these sculptures are evolving, a fur of algae on a girl’s cheek, a starfish on a nun’s face, The Silent Evolution reveals the imperceptible changes of nature on human artifice. Eventually this underwater society will be totally assimilated by marine life, transformed to another state—a challenging metaphor for the future of our own species.
Loss and fragility are another inherent theme of Taylor’s work, the impetus behind his creation of underwater sculpture Museums and many of his individual works. He explains, “Over the last 20 years, our generation has encountered rapid change; technologically, culturally and geographically. I feel this has left us with an underlying sense of loss. My work tries to record some of those moments.” The Lost Correspondent (2006) echoes these sentiments. Immersed at a depth of 8 meters in Grenada, a man sits at his desk, his hands hovering over the typewriter, poised in eternal deliberation. He is a forgotten relic, like his typewriter—an antique, superseded by modern technology.
Taylor’s sculptures—a synthesis of art and science—are made with carefully researched environmentally-friendly materials which actively promote coral growth, with inert Ph neutral properties designed to last hundreds of years. Working with Marine biologists, Taylor employs the latest research in creating habitat spaces designed to encourage specific forms of marine life. In The Anthropocene (2011), a life size replica of the classic Volkswagan Beetle encloses a “Lobster City”, designed to attract crustaceans. Inercia (2011) depicts a man on a couch watching television, ignorant of our environmental crisis; yet the television provides a habitat space for juvenile fish. Man on Fire (2009) and The Gardener of Hope (2009) have both been propagated with corals rescued after tropical storms or damaged by human activity. Anthropocene and Inercia both “explore the significant impact humans have had on our planet’s ecosystems and the subsequent effect to future generations,” balancing a potent message with a regenerative purpose.
Although constituting only 8% of our oceans, shallow seas contain most of the marine life on planet earth. By situating his sculptures in clear, shallow, barren areas, Taylor not only replicates the conditions necessary to stimulate coral growth but ensures divers, snorkelers and those aboard glass bottom boats the opportunity to view his works. Underwater, everything is magnified by 25%, light refracts, colors are changed and—as the only light source comes from the surface—kaleidoscopic effects are produced, governed by currents and turbulence. Taylor states, “Taking art off of the white walls of a gallery offers the viewer a sense of discovery and participation.” Underwater, one has a truly multi-dimensional and multi- sensual experience, free from the confines of gravity and offering a viewing perspective that is both intimate and personal.
Over the past few decades, we have lost over 40% of our natural coral reefs. Scientists predict a permanent demise of 80% by 2050. Jason de Caires Taylor’s art is an example of generative human intervention in the ecosystem, showing what can be accomplished by individual imagination and collective effort. Taylor’s strategy of conserving reefs, opposes the “land as commodity” mentality of Capitalism. His creation of underwater sculpture parks attracts tourists away from natural reefs, allowing them to recover, and taps into tourism revenue, showing how activists might be able to use the system’s rapacious tendencies against itself. His exceptional works are designed “to promote the regeneration of marine life and to use sculpture as a means of conveying hope and awareness of the plight of our oceans” before it is too late.
My Passion as a sculptor involves a technique I
uncovered more than 20 years ago — the precise art of creating “virtual
records” of contemporary culture — capturing common, everyday items in
stone. Essentially, I replicate these items on a real life scale,
complete with meticulous detail. I acheive this absolute realism by
incorporating parts of the actual object as well as custom-made stains,
paints, plastics and gold leaf. It’s more than art imitating life, it’s
art mirroring life. Robin Antar /Sculptor

This is a journey of discovery. A wake-up call that challenges our world view. Those who experience unexplained events can struggle with the profound affects these phenomena have on their lives. Others accept these events with curiosity and strive to find answers.
While there have been efforts calling for disclosure from governments, events continue to occur without official acknowledgement. Despite ridicule, misinformation, disinformation, hoaxes, and paranoia, millions of people have witnessed disclosure on a personal level. This series of work is your personal disclosure.
Personal Disclosure Number 1 is a sighting and first step into a new paradigm.

Recently, Andy has launched a multi-media project called “Personal Disclosure.” The project is
about the personal discoveries made by those who witness strange aircraft and non-human entities.
Andy moved to Los Angeles in 2003 and continues to develop the visual aesthetics of his work.
Through books and the web, I present much of my work throughout the years. Paintings in oil with a massive color-structure, where much of the motifs become almost carved onto the canvases. This defines a unique technique that I care for much.
The rich expression of a human face, the color palette of a striking landscape, and the variety of scenes in human life, formed into my figurative stories, forms a whole spectrum of my art.

Inspired by the classicists, my paintings demonstrate the same love of rich fabrics against the figure that painters such as Lord Leighton, John William Godward and Lawrence Alma-Tadema expressed in their work. I feel my work creates a sense of place with the figure totally at ease, making the interior, or secluded corner of an English country garden, a place of quiet contemplation.
I use light on the figure to enhance the natural form of the model, with deep shadow dramatising the atmosphere of the moment, and accentuating the detail in the contrasting textures of textiles and flesh. A mirrored image occurs in several of my paintings leading the viewer into the same world as the model but only able to imagine her thoughts. I am excited by this sense of mystery but it is always important that the models in my work are believable although they may exist in a dream like or theatrical setting.
I hope my paintings go beyond the “photographic” as the qualities of the paint and its ability to create a reality are a great fascination to me. The female body as a classical form is capable of endless interpretations. I seek to celebrate the form, not to idolise or sensationalise in any way, with the mood of the painting being sensual rather than sexual.

I am in my sixties and now live and work in Gloucestershire, England. I studied art at Bath Academy of Art in Corsham, Wiltshire during the late 1960’s and early 1970’s. Alongside my painting I am also a musician and could equally have chosen to play professionally if I had not persued my passion for painting.
In both my music and my painting I enjoy the traditional values of technique and skill in execution and either pleasure from a beautiful image, or the stimulating experience of live music. I play the Northumbrian Small Pipes (made for me by Colin Ross of Northumberland) and also a lute backed Hurdy-Gurdy (made for me by Chris Eaton of Worcestershire). These instruments require great concentration and attention to detail and they need endless fine tuning and adjustment for perfect results.
I realise there are parallels between the demands of my instruments and the satisfaction I get from refining the detail in my pictures. I work at my painting and play my instruments nearly every day, as I am equally passionate about them both.
I hope my paintings show how much I love what I do.
