RICA BELNA

“My work focuses on artistic and creative solutions for wall designs. I create large-format photographic imagery, which achieve a room-enhancing and space-expanding effect. With some series I specifically intend to provide calming, relaxing, invigorating and refreshing environments. These works have been successfully installed in wellness resorts, hotels, medical facilities, and hospitals, as well as in offices. My graphic designs offer a powerful way to enhance large vertical surfaces without overwhelming the space. Design motifs can be adapted flexibly in color palette, shape, sizing, and cropping to optimally fit the client’s concepts, thus flowing naturally into architectural or interior designs. I provide a wide aesthetic variety, spanning from looks inspired by classical mosaic traditions all the way to very abstract, modern works.” – Rec Belna (Berlin, Germany)

 

MICHAEL BANKS

“Michael Banks is widely credited with creating some of the most exciting and unique artwork in today’s modern art scene. His website is considered a barometer of trend-setting contemporary photography. His highly original and innovative abstract photo-art has led to collaborations with Art Consultants, Interior Designers and Gallerists, with his art being specified for high-profile international Hospitality, Leisure, Corporate and Residential Interiors. His art has been featured extensively in the international art & design press.

VICTOR TONDEE

“Born in Kazakhstan. For the last 8 years, my way of life is Nomadism. I live out of a backpack. I don’t make definite travel plans, but instead follow a spontaneous impulse. I apply a similar approach to make art, allowing a creative flow to come through me. I am inspired by the struggles and celebrations of humanity; by the wealth of cultural and natural diversity in the world. Photography allows me to capture the reality that I’m fortunate to be part of and share it with a global audience. I explore the world through my art.” -Victor Tondee
