Interview with the Artist Britt Snyder

Q: Tell us about your painting style and what first sparked an interest in this medium.

A: I paint in oils on gessoed board. I learned to paint digitally before touching oil paint and always wanted to capture that effect on a canvas with paint. My painting style is really a result of my surroundings and limitations. I’m a big guy painting in a small room with big brushes and not a lot of finesse! I constantly make mistakes, knock over my paintings, scratch things, etc… more » “Interview with the Artist Britt Snyder”

Photographer Lillian Liu

History plays a dynamic part in my work. Whether it’s portraiture styles from centuries past, to stories handed down for generations and generations- I always try to nod towards what has already come to pass.

Although many things I do are not historically accurate by a long mile- I always try to keep the spirit of the idea present. Historically inspired silhouettes, with a modern and personal spin, is what I would call some of the pieces.

I coax poses from someplace intimate and person within the model’s movements, but often encourage them to frame it in a manner that echoes paintings or sculptures.

My subject matter also weaves between royalty, to witches, to blushing maidens…old deities, archaic religion…and unearthly creatures from fairytales. more » “Photographer Lillian Liu”

Interview with the Artist Giulia Danese

The Upcoming End of Byzantium

In my series, besides create the concept, i want personally design and craft every costumes, scenography or also some props and this is a process that can take months of preparation.
For “The Upcoming End of Byzantium” my last project, in particular, it took about three months of full-time work only for preparation.

My idea for this series, originally, was a little different. The message and the sensations from which I started were similar, but initially I had imagined it in a setting with a more oriental aesthetic.
For this reason, starting to look for the model, I decided to contact Giulia. I had seen her photos and I had fallen in love with her long raven hair, which in many shots made her look like an oriental beauty, but talking to her, unfortunately, it turns out that she had just cut them… I see her photo with her new look and… no problem, a new idea immediately springs to my mind!

Vox Vespertinus: Elements–Wind, The Sylphs

Vox Vespertinus is a multi-faceted vocalist with a four octave range. Operatically trained, she loops and layers her otherworldy vocalizations over synth compositions and organic sounds. She embraces mysticism, alchemy, illumination, mythology, mystery, both the angelic realms and the underworld, and what lies beyond the veil. She is often invited to compose/contribute to projects and events of ritual, spiritual, cosmic, fantasy, and magic and can shift easily from aetheric operatic “voxings” to demonic screaming. After recording the music for The Sylphs, she felt compelled to augment the work with imagery. Sylphs are invisible elementals who dwell within the air, the wind and its current, and thus the creatures who thrive in. In some folklore they act as oracles speaking to humans through the sound of wind. The Sylphs music video is her first film project.

Interview with the Artist Leila Ataya

Interview by Constanza Tagiaferri

Q: Could you tell us about your artistic journey and how did you arrive to prefer acrylic and graphite?

A: As long as I remember myself I have always been engaged in some kind of art activity. My parents would take me to a variety of art classes as it seemed like the one thing that I was always interested in. As long as I had some paper and pencils I didn’t even require babysitting from about the age of two. Later I went on to art school and afterwards became a full time artist.
