Story and Drawing by Maxwell Anyimadu
A young boy in his late teens who is called Maxwell, nick named Dan and prefers to be called Maxwell Dan. Dan from the English word done, is an inspiration of determination in everything I focus on, should be done.
My discovery in my in depth love for art came about during much inconsistencies in life, life giving me lemons as at that time. I focused on the wind blowing against me and I was in much pain, to be frank.
I am a 51 year old that likes art.
Born in Sri Lanka I never had the opportunity to learn Art in school except during our normal Artclass. I lived to draw and paint as a child and won a few art competitions outside. My teachers in school encouraged my father to send me to private art classes but this never happened and I never did Art after grade 8 but chose a different subject. Growing up I admired and followed Van Goh and Monet’s art and desired to paint like that. I started to paint 2 years ago after moving to Canada.
Hello my name is Marco Cardona, I am 34 years old, I live in Guatemala, since I was a child I liked to draw, I started drawing the cartoons I saw and as an adult I began the interest in fine arts or traditional or academic drawing.
Art in general for me has become very important in my life and helps me to capture on a canvas or paper, what I see or what I imagine and put a part of me in every artwork I do.

Artwork and story from Sobouhi Ashraf
An artist inverts his/her observations into canvas, craft and performance that does not only reflect creativeness but also society’s believe / culture / trend.
Artwork and story from Angelica Candido
Art was a lost and found passion of mine, lost during the times when I felt that art didn’t matter then joyously found again when I started to create with a purpose and clear vision. The style of art has changed in the course of the years but the freedom of self expression through gestured lines remains. And that’s the beauty of art-to touch another soul with the use of visual symbols. I was always a quiet one and art gave me the space to express my creativity.
Artwork and story from Steve
At the age of seven I started taking pictures of bridges. I don’t know why exactly but they held a fascination for me. By the time I was twelve I was consumed by a passion for maps and drawing my own maps put me in a place other than the reality of a world I was not enjoying. I had few friends and preferred reading and going to art galleries.
Artwork and story from Džozef Bosch
Like many artist through history I subscribe to a multidisciplinary approach to art making. I find that there are so many possibilities and so much potential for creativity in today’s world that it is our duty as artists to put the pieces together and make sense of all this materials at our disposal.
