Egg tempera paint is a permanent fast drying paint consisting of colored pigments mixed with a water soluble medium used for binding usually glutinous materials such as egg yolk. Early tempera paintings going back to the 1st century AD still exist today. It was the primary medium for painting until the 1500's when is went out of vogue because of the invention of oil paint. Tempera painting as a medium was one of the main media used for illuminated manuscripts in the Byzantine world and then Medieval / Early Renaissance Europe. Many famous Italian painters such as Botticelli, Michelangelo, Raphael as well as many earlier Icons used this type of paint. As we can see today, it is an excellent material for surviving throughout the centuries to today. Throughout history this type of paint has been "rediscovered" by many artists such as William Blake, the Nazarenes art movement, the Pre-Raphealites asd well as de Chirico, Otto Dix and Andrew Wyeth all used egg tempera painting. Of course 20th century Indian art such as the Bengal school and Ganesh Pyne have used this medium extensively.

Nicholas Down - During the past few years I have had the privilege of visiting some of the most beautiful landscapes on earth including California's Sequoia National Forest, Yosemite and Joshua Tree National Parks, the red rocks of Sedona Arizona, the tough deserts of Canyonlands and Arches in Utah, Monument Valley in Navajo Nation, and of course the Grand Canyon. I was awestruck with the beauty and silences of these places and deeply inspired to create a number of new paintings and films which attempt to capture the essence of what I felt both as an artist and as a human being. I am increasingly aware of the threats to these landscapes, not just in the short term, but in the future, as the effects of climate change begin to alter rain patterns, glaciers and local ecologies in ways we are only just beginning to comprehend. My paintings are part of my extended homage to nature and are my abstract impressions of colour, mystery, and the spirit of place. My recent paintings have been hugely influenced by the winter here in New York State... frozen waterfalls, ice, snow drifts and landscapes blazing in winter hues. Technical Notes I continue to use the ...

Abiodun Ijiyera - Artist Statement In style, content and formal properties, my artwork reflects the motifs found in the traditional arts and crafts of the Yoruba people. The themes revolve around occupations, religious images, music, fashion designs, myths and folklores. Initially, when I was in college, the images recalled subconsciously. Recently, though, I make deliberate efforts to incorporate the familiar symbols and designs found in various traditional wears, musical instruments, carvings, and batik dyeing, in my artworks. The talking drums or the baritone igbin drums with their intricate carvings are much more than the sounds they produce. The formal elements expressed by the striped cords, and the wooden pegs that stretch the hide taut, beautifully illustrate graceful lines and textured organic shapes that end up as focal points in my works. Religious subjects from biblical stories are also a source of inspiration for my creative work. Though many of the stories can be narrative, I portray the images in stylized forms. The idea of stylizing started out as a way of getting kids to look for clues in solving puzzles about biblical personalities and events in our Children Ministry at church. It has since become another style of self-expression for me. ...

Richard Solstjarna - Richard SolstjA$?rna born in Sweden, lives and works in Berlin. Abstract Painting dominates my artistic expression. In my paintings the Energy and Forces which are immanent in Nature are visualized. Forces at work in maximum self-sufficiency. Primary, undiluted, full of tension. Never at ease always in moment. A pulse in rhythm and rhyme. Emerging from a Void, an emptiness and silent space which is the source of its origin. The theme, the allegories and concepts form the basis of my creations and for the technique I will avail myself of. There are no rules. Any preconceived image are dissolved for that particular artwork to emerge. Installations are made when the theme and work calls for it. ...

Matei Enric - My art is a combination between easel and wall painting. More pieces which are assembled together, creating a full image, a piece of work. Space, as usual, circumscribes the work, the wall ( the vital space around the picture ) is inserted in the piece of work, becoming in this way an element ( having plastic valences) of the composition. The piece of work, in whose substance is also integrated the wall where it is placed, remindes of the wall painting , having a better comunication with the environment unbeing isolated from it by a frame or a closed shape ( square, rectangle etc). The base of my painting consists of the plastic rhythm ( the whole composition relying on the arrangement of similar elements) and the use of different ways of the elements materialization ( brush-up ) ....
