H.R.Giger

H. R. Giger is recognized as one of the world’s foremost artists of Fantastic Realism. Born in 1940 to a chemist’s family in Chur, Switzerland, he moved in 1962 to Zurich, where he studied architecture and industrial design at the School of Applied Arts. By 1964 he was producing his first artworks, mostly ink drawings and oil paintings, resulting in his first solo exhibition in 1966, followed by the publication and world-wide distribution of his first poster edition in 1969. Shortly after, he discovered the airbrush and, along with it, his own unique freehand painting style, leading to the creation of many of his most well known works, the surrealistic Biomechanical dreamscapes, which formed the cornerstone of his fame. To date, more than 20 books have been published about Giger’s art. © H.R. Giger Reference: http://www.hrgiger.com http://www.hrgigermuseum.com http://www.giger.com

Vilijus Vaisvila was born in 1955 in Siauliai, Lithuania where he still currently resides. After graduating from Siauliai Art School he studied at the prestigious Vilnius Art Academy where he earned a degree in ceramic and art teaching. Vaisvila does paintings on canvas in both a realistic and surrealistic manner, metal and wood sculpture, and also paints portraits using very unique techniques. His compositions usually are created parallel to the surface of the canvas to offer the viewer a clear perception of the entire piece. Vaisvila's works are based on the contrast between the outward tranquility and internal tension. He remains a well known painter not only in Baltic countries and Scandinavia but also in Europe and the United States. He has had exhibitions in London, Bromella, Oslo, Chicago, and he also participated in the 2004 Artville exhibition in Copenhagen.

For Mark Larson (March 3, 1964, Portland, Oregon), a former nature painter and Portland, Oregon native who now lives and works in Tacoma, WA, this statement could not be more apt. Inspired by his travels to Europe beginning in 1999 with his wife Andree, an art historian, Mark underwent a personal and artistic renaissance of his own, literally overnight.
