ABU YAHYAZ 

A self taught Arabic calligraphy artist . I was born and brought up in Kashmir and completed my Master degree from Kashmir before moving to England for further studies .

 

Art has always been in my soul but due to lack of resources in my early age I could not learn it as formal education. Since last 5 years, I invest more time & resources in it and by grace of almighty & with the help of Luton Culture I had my solo exhibition in 2018 which was a great success.  My work has gone to countries like Australia & America & Middle East and people do like my unconventional style. 

GARRY YOUNG

I am a self taught artist from Luton, and I have been sculpting now for around 10 years. I got into sculpture through my welding and engineering qualifications and full time work, at the time.

Over the years I have exhibited in Luton at the Wardown Park Museum in 2009 and 2010. Letchworth arts centre 2011. Ashridge house 2011. Bothy Vineyard 2013, Oxfordshire. Circle Reading Hospital 2014. But to me there would be nothing better than to exhibit my work once again in my home town of Luton

BLOOD TEST

The style I would call Bio Medical art/ Modern art/ Abstract art. Beyond the obvious is a black man whose colouring is white going through what looks to be a crude blood testing process.

( Mediums used: Clay (self drying), wood and white emulsion paint.

HUGH BYRNE 

I am defined as a visual artist using photography and montage. I use Photoshop as an integral tool for my work. 

EMANZA ART 

Emanza Art specialises in original contemporary abstract art. The artist fuses a mixture of colours, textures and techniques to create emotion on canvas, using the artists own personal experiences.
Emanza’s work is inspired by several different artists namely, Jackson Pollock who used free throw of paint and colour creating a magical world; Pablo Picasso, distorting the image and presenting it as the most beautiful piece of abstract art and Van Gogh, his sense of reality captured in the paintings. However, Emanza’s contemporary abstract art is primarily inspired by her children Emaan and Hamza; their laughter, happiness and freedom is a huge element in the work produced.
Distortion of objects or images are commonly used within abstract art. This allows everyday items to become the most beautiful fantasies.

his exhibition uses various material play to depict sculptures in visceral states of decay. The toxic materials creates a gelatinous appearance of the sculptures. This approach explore the connections between the mind and body through the industrious generative and destructive processes of making to remind the viewer of their own existence.

JAY CLARK

I am a Leicester based multidisciplinary artist. Clarke studied his BA at De Montfort University with a year spent studying in Bulgaria. He is now studying a Masters in Art. His works are abstract figurative depicting the human form as gelatinous figures depicted in a fixed state of decay. Having exhibited twice in Bulgaria, and commissioned by an arts festival in Florida, Clarke isn’t new to the international table. He has exhibited locally around Leicester with a piece permanently exhibited at DMU, and has won awards from various establishments.

For me to be myself, I sometimes have to lie. From fear of upsetting or disappointing my devout Christian mother, I find myself tweaking my own personality at home. This fear even hinders me from revealing the most miniscule secrets but now, knowing the controversial nature of confessing, I’m revealing 25 selected lies I’ve told and/or kept.

Adeline creates large canvases mostly with vivid oil paint colours. She uses oil paint because she romanticises the buttery texture of the paint which allows her to take advantage of the long-drying time. This gives her unique opportunities to come back to her work and shift the sense of perspective, challenging her patience infront of the canvas which is in fact a mirror to her soul.

ADELINE TIMIS

Adeline Timis is a Visual Shaman Artist.  Following a feminist path, she is using her own experiences with the world to show social, mental and physical states of the spirit portrayed in her artworks. While the physical body is silenced, censored, tortured, destroyed and disrespected in a hypocrite 21st century society, the ether body is gaining more knowledge, ascending towards a new Dimension. She sees herself as a reincarnated Goddess in a human body, deserted on Earth to lead others to their journey within. She creates with her soul and third eye visions, absorbing in the energy of the world to fuel her inspiration. Born on Romanian land, she never felt at home in one place, so she embraced the entire world as one with all the culture as being hers. She's a nomad with a spiritual quest and art tools. 

SOPHIE GRESSWELL 

I develop interactive art in public realms to start dialogues between people and place. I work with communities and young people to empower voices and challenge perceptions.
