“While quite often traditional art is left on the shelves to accumulate dust, I focus my practise around the way of making it contemporary. Mixing classical oil painting techniques such as glazing and impasto with street art methods I explore poetic nature of such elusive notions as fading memories, nostalgic emotions and time quickly passing by. In a digital age when nobody knows what’s real anymore the legacy of centuries of art history shouldn’t be discarded as a dying breed but used as a key to understand the present.”
Meet Daniela . . .
Daniela | 17 | Italy
My name is Daniela, I’m 17 and I live in a small Italian city. I document most of my complex feelings in my journals, and a lot of them are expressed without using words. My artistic side definitely comes from my grandpa. He was a professional pianist and he also loved reading, writing and was interested in photography. Because I grew up with him, I collected his passions and made them mine too.
Jaxson | 18 | Montana
I’m Jaxson Davis, I am an 18 year old self taught artist from Billings, Montana! I recently graduated from high school last month. I have been drawing since I was in second grade. I remember drawing superheroes every night before I went to bed. I drew a countless amounts from then to about 5th grade. When junior year hit, I got a sketch book for study hall and some sharpies. One of my first little doodles was the original Bad Banana. And now, 9 months later I have done things with my art that I would never have guessed.
Sofia | 16 | Southern California
My name is Sofia (aka @theretrorae) and I am a 16 year old photographer living in Southern California! I recently took up photography and absolutely fell in love! Women are a constant theme in my photos, I love women empowerment and seeing girls be confident in their own skin. In addition to my photography, I make collages to go with them. Sometimes a picture needs something more to give it justice, and thats what a collage does. When I make my collages, I don’t have a specific meaning, its up to the viewer to find their own, wether it just be pleasing to look at or they find something that means a lot to them.
