Central Art Fair - Part 2

As promised part 2 of the Central Art fair, as i said before there were so many things to see, and this kind of fair should be visited on multiple days, but I only went for the last day luckily, so all my informations and appreciations had to be condensed, but I loved every bit of it.

Wolfgag Stiller, loved his work, he is a german artist seing his sculptures lives is much more expressive than my photos here, but I had to share it with you because it really impressed me, his work is very beautiful.
This series of sculptures is called " the matchsticks " his art has deep meaning,  the life sized burnt down matchsticks with human heads represent how a person can be burnt out and left behind in a society that only focuses on economics and growth.
His work is inspired a lot from the buddhist philosophy .

Click the link below for more images about Stiller's work on the internet, as it will show you a clear images about the details of the head of his sculptures.

Isabel Beyel,  the first thing I noticed  while reading her biography, after I saw her work was " Autodidact " Self taught and suddenly, I was thinking out loud you see I need to see more of this self-taught artist meaning there is no excuse in fulfilling your dream no matter what.

Isabel Beyel, is a german self-taught artist who studied law and worked in human resources. Sounds a bit like me I studied clinical psychology and became a jewelry designer.
in 2003 Beyel decided to pursue her true passion and started to work as a contemporary artist, she developed a new technique based on a mixture of painting and mixed media that looks like a 4D art.
I loved her work, here is the link where you can see her work in detail .

Han Young-Wook is an amazing, Korean artist, he is just great, he doest unbelievable realistic portrait with a very special technics which consist using oil on aluminum and scratching for the details. The paintings were so impressive, I tried to take a close up photo to show the detail of the scratch. His paintings can really make you heart beat so fast, it is just so amazing. Frankly I couldn't quite understand the technics that he is using but surely I was amazed by the realistic details  he puts into his work, plus his paintings are huge .
I am so in love with his work, if you look at the details in the eyes it is simply astounding work of art. love it, love it, love it.

Manolos Valdés, is a Spanish artist, who creates work art with mixed media, paint and he also does sculptures.
His art is a form of  expression combined with political and social obligations message with a sense of humor and irony 
I saw his work of art at the end of the show, he had huge paintings, loved the vivid colors and the mixed media he used
