Let’s delve into the backgrounds and inspirations of these two exceptional artists.
Emmett Graham: The Journey from Marine Corps to Artistic Expression
Emmett Graham, a Mexican-American Marine Corps Veteran hailing from Colorado, now resides in Arizona, where he has embarked on a remarkable artistic journey. After his dedicated service in the Marine Corps, Graham took up the mantle of an artist and honed his skills through a two-year Atelier Workshop at the Scottsdale Artists’ School. He furthered his artistic education by earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree from Arizona State University.
Graham’s artistic philosophy is deeply rooted in his desire to capture the nature and perception of others through his creations. His works reflect duality, often exploring contrasting elements such as day and night, light and darkness. His meticulous process involves using brushes and rags to apply an oil paint grayscale foundation before layering on multiple thin coats of color, painstakingly detailing even the smallest aspects of his artwork. The result is a harmonious blend of contrasting elements that contribute to the overall narrative of his pieces.
Olga Lomaka: A Multi-Disciplinary Maestro of Modern Art
Olga Lomaka, a British multi-disciplinary artist and the founder of ‘Lomaka Gallery,’ is a force to be reckoned with in the art world. Her innovative approach seamlessly combines traditional techniques with modern methods, resulting in a body of work that transcends conventional boundaries.
One of the hallmarks of Lomaka’s artistic repertoire is her ability to incorporate pop-art, recognizable imagery, and consumerist symbols into her creations. These elements intertwine with contrasting beliefs, creating a thought-provoking and visually stimulating experience for viewers.
Lomaka’s pieces have been featured at prestigious art events, including Art Basel Miami, the Venice Biennale, and The Royal Academy of Arts. Her accolades include the esteemed ‘Best Contemporary Artist of the Year’ award from Phillips Auction House in London, a testament to her enduring impact on the art world.
