Cristina B is a painter who lives and works in Lugano, Switzerland. I think her paintings are fantastic!
here is a little from the artist:
“My work is basically led by the way I feel at the moment of painting. There is not a defined theme as I start; it develops as I draw lines and colours on the canvas. In a second moment, I define spaces and the colour palette: the dialogue between these two elements thus generates details and gives a shape to an as yet undefined concept…”

Aya Kakeda was born and raised in Tokyo, Japan and is now living and working in Brooklyn, New York. She earned a BFA from the Savannah College of Art and Design and an MFA in Illustration from the School of Visual Arts in New York City. In her art, she often depicts an imaginary place she created, called ToTai Island, and the creatures that inhabit it. For this new show at MF Gallery, she illustrates the microscopic world of ToTai island; the girl (named "Micro-Chan") who lives inside of the creatures on the island, and her story. She will be showing gouache paintings and ceramic sculpture installations.
