Wrinkles are the scars of time

Story and artwork from Vimal Nair

My name is Vimal Nair, a professional pastry chef with a passion for art.

As a self-taught artist, I find peace and inspiration in life through art and it motivates me to create the pieces I make.

Since I learned most of my artwork with the help of youtube and online platforms, I lack the knowledge of the basics of art and tips to improve my skills.

Good Things Come…

Story and aertwork from Pierce Horvath

Hi, I’m Pierce Horvath. I’m 23 and I am an illustrator, animator, and musician from Chicago, Illinois. Art is everything in my life because I come from a very creative background. My family for generations have been musicians, dating back to when my ancestors lived in Eastern Europe. I play violin, guitar, and sing. My father plays drums but is an electrical engineer/draftsman by occupation. From a very young age, he taught me to draw simple shapes at first and that ignited my passion to create. Deep down, I realized it’s about telling a story through mark making and the overall visuals.

The Color Paradise

Story and artwork by Ragav Palaniswamy

I am Ragav and I currently live in the UAE. I am an Indian. I am a student of Grade 9. Art is everything for me. It relaxes me. I do it when I am stressed, bored or just if I feel like painting or drawing.

I can convey my thoughts through art. I can paint my heart out whenever I want.

Seeing the vibrant colour combination, I fell calm and composed. My challenge in art is the same as for others; Perfection.

Invisible Stories

Story and artwork from Mehmet Dere

I often find it obscene for an artist to talk about himself. It is a strange contradiction for a person who is both a state of affairs to tell yourself about his art using everyday language. I have been dealing with painting for about 20 years.

I am not afraid

Story and artwork from Hannelie

My name is Hannelie and I am a teacher at a home school centre and art tutor in my spare time. I live in South Africa and is privileged that I can share my talents with other people and teach them new art skills and enable them to use their art to channel their emotions positively. I love to see students grow and find themselves in their art as well as helping them find their unique style of artmaking. My favourite art medium is charcoal and graphite, but I also like to work with oil paint, pastels, pencils, acrylic and watercolour. I am also interested in learning different printing techniques. I grew up watching my grandmother paint and I believe that is where my love for art blossomed.
