LIA BABANOVA

Lia | 28 | Moscow

Lia is a 28-old classically trained Russian visual artist. Originally from Moscow, Lia is embracing free-spirited nomadic lifestyle, preferring not to settle down in one location but travel the world. Among the countries she lived and worked in are Vietnam, Indonesia, Great Britain and Spain.

“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.”

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. ​

My interest in film photography commenced in late 2014 and ever since it has proven to be a true passion of mine. As my involvement deepened, I became more enterprising with my work, focussing on creating more engaging photos with my own unique style. I love working with the elements of colour and composition and I predominantly concentrate on the expression of these and using interesting subject matters in my photography.

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.

I’m a freelance photographer and digital artist, my work focuses heavily on collage art with a twist. I’ve cultivated particular styles of collage, starting with the paper edits which were my first creations around a year ago, expanding into my regular styles of Illustrations, Invisibles, Florals, Glitter, and Moving collages. 
I’m a passionate photographer, with a love of 35mm film photography although digital is my tool of choice when photographing for edits!
I speak French, love my two tiny dogs, am an obsessive book collector and film watcher and in my spare time am trying to teach myself to speak a third language!
