Daniele Lemieux, Sandra Kojic, Pol Ledent, John Sims, Vladimir Volosov, Ivan Pili, Wojtek Kowalski offering original Oil Paintings artworks. Using oil paints is the process of painting with varied pigments with a medium of drying oil that often includes linseed oil, poppy seek oil, safflower oil and walnut oil as a binder. Artists use several different oils to achieve different effects. Oil may also be boiled with resin or frankincense to create a varnish that has a lot of body and gloss. Oil paint was first used by Indian (Buddhist) and Chinese painters in western Afghanistan between the 5th and 10th century and did not gain popularity until about the 15th century. It's use finally migrated west during the Middle Ages and became the main medium during Northern Renaissance to replace the previous use of tempera paints. Norther European painters such as Jan van Eyck is often credited for inventing the use of oil paint on wood panel. After it's success in Northern Europe the use of oil paint migrated south to Italy where such notable artists as Leonardo da Vinci use it to pain the famous "Mona Lisa". Towards the end of the 15th century and beginning of the 16th century wood panels were replaced by canvas and oil on canvas as a medium became very popular and still is today. Rubens, Titian, Rembrandt, Raphael as well as Vermeer, most of the Impressionists such as Monet, Renoir as well as Van Gogh and Picasso and Kandinsky all uses oil paints as their main medium to apply paint onto canvas.

Daniele Lemieux - My work is a celebration of humanity as represented by the universally familiar. I seek to instill the commonplace with the same reverence given by 17th century masters to objects denoting wealth and social position. As an antidote to modern day excessiveness, my deliberate choice and treatment of objects is an invitation to revisit the quiet dignity and poetry of the basic form. Objects become icons; valued for usefulness, not decoration; acquired through need, not through want. Stripped of artifice, they are symbolic of the desire to return to that which is true. My compositions are often loosely based on the classic triangle and are centered in the picture plane. This combination allows for a calm balance that can border on the spiritual. My artist's eye edits out the superfluous, seeking harmony and peace, offering the viewer a place where order replaces chaos.contemplation leads to an affirmation of self-worth. "The profoundest order is revealed in what is most casual." (Fairfield Porter) ...

John Sims - Following some thirty years working as a graphic designer and illustrator I began stone carving in 2000 and in 2002 I returned to college at Christ Church Canterbury in England to study BA Fine Art. In 2007 I went to the Cyprus College of Art to study for a Post Grad Diploma in Fine Art under the great Cypriot artist, Stass Paraskos. At the end of the course I was asked to stay on and run the Summer Schools and to be tutor on the Post Grad course. An incredible experience and an enormous influence on my work. My work now involves less stone carving more often found timber or kebab sticks My drawing in some respects has turned a full circle in the sense that prior to sculpture my illustration work was colourful but painstakingly detailed and stylised. At college I concentrated on measured observational life drawing in pencil which fed into the simple lines of my mainly figuratively based stone carvings. Whilst in Cyprus I re-discovered colour in both my drawing and sculpture. Dreams and mythology filled my waking and sleeping hours. Oil pastel and oil sticks became my favourite mediums to quickly capture these glimpses of ...
Vladimir Volosov - I was born in 1937 in Leningrad, USSR (now St. Petersburg, Russia). My way to art was a lengthy one. Before becoming an artist, I studied for thirty years at the forefront of modern physics as a PhD scientist and professor, author more than 150 scientific articles in contemporary laser physics. Thirty years of strenuous scientific work on the front edge of modern physics gives me a deep feeling for the anxiety and unprotectedness of the world's beauty. The formula, "beauty saves the world" fits my own attitude. My creed is also embodied in the statement: "to have time to realize everything given to you by Nature." At the threshold of my fifties, I decided to live one more life, a new, alluring life of the free artist. I walked away from my established scientific career and completely devoted myself to painting. In 1991 I founded and headed the association "Light, Color and Art" to connect with scientists engaged in the arts. The main directions of my paintings are lyrical realism and abstract compositions. My paintings are about light, color, atmosphere and space. For me, the most important elements are light and color and their juxtaposition/nexus/meeting of...
Ivan Pili - Following in the footsteps of the great masters of the past, the tradition of classical and romantic nineteenth-century painting that evolves into a figurative language relives in the beautiful works of art of master Ivan Pili , whilst the segno runs fast and decisive in the graphic ability from suffused values aEUR Wojtek Kowalski - I am a self-taught person. ... My paintings rise from an internal need. I find inspiration in peace and quiet , by observing nature and people. My works show my own vision of the world. By using colours and simple forms I convey feelings and emotions as well as dreams and fantasies. Ideas spring to my mind when nothing happens around me. I am guided by my own sense of beauty and aesthetics. ...
