William Ronald - Canadian Abstract Painter

William Ronald, Canadian painter (born Aug. 13, 1926, Stratford, Ont.—died Feb. 9, 1998, Barrie, Ont.), was the driving force behind the formation in 1953 of Painters Eleven, a group that introduced abstraction to Canadian art. Ronald studied with Jock Macdonald at the Ontario College of Art in 1951 before briefly attending Hans Hofmann’s school in New York City the following year. Ronald embraced the contemporary, international style of Abstract Expressionism, and his monumental canvases were a striking departure from the then-prevailing approach of the Group of Seven, who painted folkloric subjects featuring Canadian themes in an earnest, traditional manner.

Vladimir Yankilevsky - Russian Contemporary Art

Vladimir Borisovich Yankilevsky (February 15, 1938, Moscow – January 4, 2018, Paris) was a Russian artist known mostly for his participation in the Soviet Nonconformist Art movement of the 1960s through the 1980s. Perhaps his most famous works are his triptychs, works that are difficult to classify, occupying a unique middle ground between painting, and sculpture, similar in some ways to Rauschenberg's combines. On the most basic level, these works use disorienting, often nightmarish imagery to paint a picture of restrictive mental states associated with daily life in the Soviet Union, and with the human condition in general.

Shozo Shimamoto - Gutai Group - Japanese Avant-Garde Art

«Shozo Shimamoto was born in Osaka, Japan, in 1928. Together with Jiro Yoshihara, he was co-founder of the Gutai group, and he is considered one of the most experimental artists in the period after World War II. Gutai, the first radical artistic movement in Japan, developed in the late fifties, more or less contemporary with the informal movement in European and American art. Its main aim was to give new life to the Japanese artistic tradition. A work of art, for them, was no longer a simple support, but became a physical transposition of the artist's actions, which is what (like in action painting) turns the work of art into an action. Shimamoto, a pivotal figure in the movement, felt the need for new signs of expression that he found both in action and matter. „

Juan T. Vázquez Martín - Cuban Abstract Painting

Juan T. Vázquez Martín (born December 23, 1940 — January 31, 2017 ) Cuban abstract painter. A Cuban painter who lived and worked in Havana.
'Looking at Juan Vázquez Martín's paintings, what is immediately recognisable, is the Renaissance concept of 'the window', the dissolution of forms discovered by Kandinski, as well as the sense of textural beauty introduced by the contemporary painters of the matière school.In essence, this involves a private display that allows the artist to make a series of paintings on canvas or cartridge paper, revealing to the viewer an ensemble of optical sensations that reflect the internal world of the artist."

Tunga - Jose de Barros Carvalho e Mello - Brazylian Conceptual Artist

«Brazilian artist Tunga, born Jose de Barros Carvalho e Mello, was a talented and eclectic creator who worked in sculpture, installation, photography, poetry, and video. His large-scale installations and sculptures were always capable of transforming galleries and museums into dreamlike environments thanks to the most versatile materials such as plastic, thread, and recycled objects. Even though his process was materially intensive, Tunga’s practice was also clearly conceptual. His works are intellectually puzzling, they resist certainty and confuse the audience. For instance, in his piece from 2007 entitled At the Light of Both Worlds from 2007, Tunga hung from a gallery ceiling a massive assemblage of bones and bronze replicas of classical art – this outstanding work is a unique commentary on the intrinsic balance between life and death.»

Jarg Geismar - Minimalism and Conceptual Art

Jarg Geismar (  1958 in Burgsvik, Gotland, Sweden — 2019, Essen, Germany) was a German artist .” The work of Jarg Geismar reaches out from the painting, on installations, video art and collaborative projects with artists from different sectors. For him, all materials and objects are used to turn them into art.“There is a very down to-earth, do-it-yourself aesthetics at play in the works of Geismar, an elegant performance refreshing in a world dominated by the values of money, bling and all of the materialistic accoutrements of our time. These works could be so fleeting that nothing more than a strong gust of wind could completely dispere with an institution’s worth of art. The efforts of Geismar are very much of the ilk inherent in the sentiment of Jasper Johns: to take an object, do something else. The context of Geismar’s efforts are less to be seen in galleries than in public spaces, as this is a very open and generous art form, to be embraced from the mind and heart instead from the wallet alone.” Kenny Schachter in “The Red Line”

Bernard Aubertin - Visual Art

«Bernard Aubertin was an artist best known for his red monochromatic paintings and association with the ZERO movement. Born in 1934 in Fontenay-aux-Roses, France, he initially studied decorative art until meeting Yves Klein in 1957, who encouraged him toward abstract art. Aubertin’s first monochrome works were created in 1958 and featured canvases covered in materials such as nails, bolts, and screws all painted in red. By 1961, he officially joined the ZERO group, seeking to create a detached, expressionless approach to art making. Later in his career, his practice evolved to incorporate performance, and he became known for setting fire to his own work and exhibiting the remains, as in Livre Brûlé (1974), where the artist set fire to a book and displayed the charred remains of its pages and bindings.»
