Yana Movchan

3...Yanina (Yana) Movchan was born in Kiev in 1971.

Yana’s sublime mastery of the technique and structure of Renaissance painting combines with the instinctive symbolism of “magical realism” to create a personal neo-realist idiom. Her work is formal, yet playful; contemporary, yet timeless; and joyous, yet  mysterious, evocative and dreamlike.
In Yana’s paintings, the intellectual and the emotional synthesize to form images that touch the viewer’s heart whilst issuing a challenge: there are deeper meanings to be unraveled, hidden clues amongst the hyper-real still lives, portraits and animal scenes; meanings which echo deep in the unconscious mind. Reviewers have compared Movchan’s work to Velasquez, Colville and Magritte.
Yana trained at the Ukrainian Art Academy. Her master’s thesis project (a triptych entitled “Life on Earth”) won the Golden Fund Prize, the Academy’s highest art award. Her work has featured in solo and group exhibitions in the Ukraine, Prague, London and Canada. She is based in Halifax, Canada, where she lives with her husband and two young sons..."

''I am a german Graphic Designer living in Malaysia and a mom of 2 lovely children.''

In my art I am mainly focused on mixed media. The images I use are mostly vintage photos and old pictures. I love to experiment in photoshop, tare pictures apart and assemble them into a new content.''

Corrie White " Liquid Drop art"

Découvrir l'univers fantastique de Corrie White

"...I have a passion for water drop photography! A macro art form where you can mold a figure made of liquids, and where each one is totally unique. This type of photography lets you experience what is usually invisible to the human eye.
I was born in The Netherlands and currently make my home near London, Ontario in Canada. Photography has been an interest of mine from an early age and macro photography has always had a special appeal for me. I am basically self-taught and learned water drop photography from some tutorials online. A lot of my water drops posted here were done manually with a medicine dropper and a good sense of timing. The more complex forms are now done by using Mumford's Time Machine and the Drip Kit which allow me to create some very unique and fascinating figures. The colours I use come from food dyes and various flash gels. The forms of the water and milk shapes are pure and unedited.
I have made some discoveries in water drop photography, one of them being the unique three drop splash as in "Tiny Dancer". Another is multiple exposures in water drops. This is where the drops are falling in the same area but while I am panning the camera, I can get more than one splash in the same frame, such as my "Liquid Flowers". I pushed the drip kit to the limits by creating a splash with a bubble-type base caused by an extra large drop as in "Suspended". I have combined soap film and water drops simultaneously as well as the water drop/liquid flow combo as you see in "Coral Sea Dreaming". One method I started using was to color white milk splashes using colored gels on the flash guns which made some very colorful forms. I'm always looking for the unique and trying to come up with something that has never been done before..."
