PICTORIAL ART BY RUSSELL CLEVERSLEY

Russell is also known as the Pixel Artisan. He is a Photoshop digital artist with an enduring and deep passion for details and realism. His paintings often include dramatic skies and atmospheric lighting. After decades as a traditional artist, he found that it was possible to achieve higher levels of detailing and realism using the digital medium. While he is capable of painting photo-realistic images, Russell felt that it was important to create works that reflected the visual qualities of traditional fine art. He has developed many unique digital techniques for creating believable textures. There are never any imported images, scans, third party plug-ins or other applications used in the creation of his works. Russ paints primarily from his own visions and experiences. For the more intricate elements he may use a reference photo for perspective and specific details; for instance, an animal. But never copies or duplicates of an image. Every element and the composition of every painting are original. The final element has little, if any, resemblance to the reference or base photo. That makes his painting totally unique...one of a kind in the world. Russ owns an advertising and marketing business in Buffalo, New York. His specialty is preparing images for print for many New York City art galleries. It has been the cornerstone of of his extensive career.

ART BY ALEXIS DIGART

Abstract Digital Landscapes

Alexis Digart was born in Piraeus (Greece). In 1974, he moved to Paris and began his studies at E.N.S.B.A. (Ecole Nationale Superieure Des Beaux Arts). In 1979, he received his diploma in Architecture (Architecte D.P.L.G.). While studying architecture he also attended workshops in 'Arts Plastiques' (painting, sculpture) with teachers such as Carrade, Marchandour, Corbato and Dalla Valee. During his time as a student (1974-1979) he was also professionally engaged in painting (mainly watercolour paintings and pastel portraits), working at the Place du Tertre (Paris). His watercolour paintings and portraits from this period already belong to private collections across the world. The last three years, with new tools provided by digital technology, Alexis focuses again on his favorite themes directly on the screen of the PC. He works mainly through his imagination or memory of the splendid landscapes of his beloved country, using a variety of digital painting software.

Artist Statement
Every piece of my paintings is an original and unique work of art. These paintings are digitally painted by me using a variety of digital design and painting software and they are unique and not a reproduction or photo manipulation. I work mainly through my imagination (abstract expressionism) or memory of the splendid landscapes of my beloved country (landscapes-seascapes of impressionist or expressionist style) or sometimes I retouch digitally some of my old drawings, paintings and portraits.
