Edward Waite was born in Sheffield in 1989 and studied Fine Art at The University of Lincoln. After travelling across the globe from Brazil to Australia. He referenced the places he visited through sketchbooks full of notes, drawings and ideas. Edward started to turn all of his sketches and notes into larger pieces of artwork and soon developed his signature style.
Known for his vivid 3D cityscapes, Edward has painted iconic landmarks from cities around the world including Paris, New York, and of course, London. Each work perfectly captures the bright lights and constant rush of urban life, thanks to his bold, colour-filled technique; first inspired by ketchup bottles in a New York Diner!
His vast portfolio now consists of an array of different projects. Last year, saw Edward collaborate with a Saville Row Tailor, to design a suit with his painting printed onto the lining and more recently his artwork has also been wrapped around a full-scale replica phone box! Another of these projects combines art with technology, the new Edward Waite App, allows people all over the world to engage with Edwards artwork by creating their own virtual cityscape using his signature sauce bottles.
Never one to rest on his laurels, Edward also hopes to encourage new talent by visiting primary and secondary schools around the country, where students can work along side Edward and benefit from his experience.
It has been a swift rise to fame and success for the artist, who is not yet even 30, but he is potentially on his way to becoming one of the most renowned artists of his generation. Arqadia, 4 Walls Magazine.
Leanne Christie was born in Warwickshire, England. As a family Leanne moved to Cornwall on the coast near Gwithian Towans where she spent her teenage years. This area is Leanne's main inspiration for her many seascapes.
Leanne paints vibrant flowerscapes, English country gardens & wild flower meadows. Professionally painting for over twenty years, she has been described as one of the most prolific artists in recent years. Painting and design has always been an integral part of Leanne's family life. Leanne's earliest memories are of watching her mum sketching and painting in her art studio. She grew up surrounded by paint and canvases forming an interest in art from an early age and going on to produce commercial pieces ever since.
Leanne is now living in Devon, drawing inspiration from the ever changing moorlands, beautiful coastlines and Devon's famous floral hedgerows. Leanne's work is unique and highly sought after.
The Paintings: All of Leanne's paintings are predominately oil, embellished with glitter, jewels and gold leaf.
These unique paintings, regardless of whether they are flowerscapes, seascapes, waterscapes or moorlands, are textured with an almost three dimensional feel. The observer feels drawn in to the painting. Depending on the time of day or year, the light plays a magical part in making the paintings come to life.
Born in the industrial city of Donetsk in 1961, Andrei Protsouk demonstrated an exceptional gift for art from a young age. With his father a photographer and his mother a master embroiderer, it seemed only natural that he too would pursue a career within the arts. On leaving school Protsouk attended the prestigious Lugansk School of Fine Art, followed by a Masters Degree at the Ilya Repin Leningrad Institute; widely regarded as one of the worlds finest art training programmes. Here, Protsouk studied under Evsey Moiseenko- a world renowned contemporary of Marc Chagall and Pablo Picasso. Moiseenko adopted Protsouk as his protegee, recognizing the potential of his already remarkable talent. Protsouks early works reflected the melancholy of the Soviets living conditions; using heavy textures and dark colours.
In 1994 Protsouk moved with his family to the US, where he quickly established himself as a prominent figure on the contemporary art scene. His paintings became more colourful; his subjects more joyful, celebrating life in the freedom of American society. Many of his artworks now centre around the universal theme of love, frequently depicting couples in the midst of passionate dances or embraces. Unafraid to work to large scales, Protsouks elaborate pieces burst with vibrant colours, intricate shapes and varied textures. His use of constructive line demonstrates his innate creative ability and understanding of the human form, drawing comparisons to the figurative works of Michaelangelo.
Never one to rest on his laurels, the artist works today from a studio within his own gallery in Pennsylvania, continuing to experiment with a range of media and subject matter. His evident passion and dedication to his practice has deserved him phenomenal commercial success, having completed commissions for Johnnie Walker and Coca Cola. His work hangs in private collections of notable figures including George Bush, and as such is considered to have excellent investment potential.
