Bratsa Bonifacho (1937) is a senior artist based in Vancouver, Canada. Internationally recognized for his deeply layered abstract paintings, an intense interest in technology, communication and cultural identity is at the forefront of his current artistic practice. The source of Bonifacho’s art is the comprehension and channelling of strong emotions stemming from observation, current events and epiphanic memory. He sees objective awareness as full of creative fire and for sustained body of work, the emotive energy must be profound. He rides these obsessive crests like a surfer, until they subside in his consciousness. One cannot artificially rehearse, buy, or borrow this energy, which is one reason he cannot subscribe to popular generational or interest group issues of the day. Bonifacho's interest in communication and cultural identity is the foundation for his many unique series of paintings produced over a forty-year period dedicated to creating art. His work is held in many private, corporate and permanent museum collections across five continents.

Pedro Fonseca (1976) defines his style as a mix of post-modernism with pop art, influenced by Jackson Pollock. He defines his skills as self-taught, with an intuitive understanding of abstract techniques and mixed media. Fonsek focuses on iconographic people who have left a positive impact on humanity. Many of his works feature the dripping technique, creating splatters that fill and surround the iconic faces and special fonts presented in his artwork. Trained as a graphic artist, his style is a unique combination of the appeal of poster art with the boundary-breaking freedom of Abstract Expressionism. “My artwork,” he says, “has to define happiness and all of the possible ways to express the way I see life.” In other words, his art represents his positive outlook on life and the world around him, aiming to share that brightness with others. Fonsek has exhibited in Asia, Mexico, Europe, and in the US, both in Miami and NYC. He has also exhibited under the name “Fonseca.”.
Sergey Piskunov (1989) is an established Ukrainian artist that describes his artwork as a burst of emotion, forcing the artist to turn his soul inside-out and leave it on canvas. Sergey dedicates himself to hyperrealism, a style that posses its own charm and character that reflects the inner-state of its creator. Despite having a true passion for drawing since childhood, he was drawn away from the creative path during his education in computer system engineering. On his third year, a close person to him gave him a brush and set of oil paints, a small gesture that suddenly reawakened his inner-desire to manifest himself through drawing. Since then has become the embodiment of a free artist, guided by the prism of his own inspiration and talent, exposing his personality through his art to the outside world. Sergey’s artwork has been showcased not only in the Ukraine but also in: Germany, Great Britain, USA, Switzerland and several other countries. He stands by the belief that: Art is a jealous entity that requires the artist to dedicate their entire being to it.”

He gives this style a unique appeal through deconstruction by aggressively sanding, carving, cutting and polishing each piece to perfection. He holds a Masters in fine art and design and was a master scholar under professor John Teschendorff and professor Christopher Crouch.
Metin Salih (1962) is an international artist and bold painter that continuously strives to evolve his style as a contemporary artist that uses a truly unique color palette.
