Maria Hakobyan | Artwork

I am a self-taught artist from Armenia. From the early age, I had a strong fascination for the arts, especially portraiture. I had started my experiments in drawing around 20 years ago. In 2011, encouraged by the inspiring comments of the professional artists, along with my sister, Anaida Hakobyan, we had built a new art brand “Manana11”. Our art-works are focused on the human faces. At the same time, we are not trying to achieve photographic likeness, but to express the mood of each character. It’s because I believe that human face is a gate to the inner world. What can’t be told, can be expressed through a glance. Over a dozen of our works have been published in a number of issues of online and print magazines, such as, “Pink Panther”, “Yerevan”, appeared on the singles’ covers. Currently, we are working on a series of art-works for a new art project. Besides, most probably we will have a co-exhibition this September.

Game About Pakistani Politics by Nashra

Published

on

The game is Paltering Politicians. Role play as one of Pakistan’s paltering politicians and face several moral dilemmas along the way. Are you going to take the typical route and be one of the many political puppets or are you going to defend yourself and be the hero that the country needs?

Along the way, you can choose to rig the elections, but beware, the lie detector may catch you and give you a nasty shock.

The game ends when one player proves himself to be either the saviour of Pakistan or the reason for its demise.

“Paltering Politicians is a game based on outrageous incidents in Pakistani politics.Our politicians do so many unbelievable things that make the news, however, every time something new happens, the old stories are forgotten. I created this game to eternalize all these incidents, so people can constantly be reminded of their actions.” said Nashra, while talking to Times of Youth.

Paltering Politicians is designed by Nashra Balagamwala

Nashra – A Pakistani experiential designer who is currently based in New York. She studied game design at Rhode Island School of Design. Nashra has also worked with companies such as Hasbro the company that developed games such as Monopoly and Jenga.

She left her homeland and moved to the US 5 years ago. Her goal is to have a chance to pursue her dream of being a designer, and through her work she wants to empower other women to stand up for their own rights.

I’m just an artist who loves bright horizons and color spots. For his work draws inspiration from one of my very clean and highly energy period full of hope and color, and these are the fifties and sixties of the last century. I try to crashing this colorful touch in today’s gray and material life.

I currently finished the transformation of a bar in Sofia, Bulgaria – and now his breath before the next project. I could barely detect the silhouette of the next project in the distance, but to let him surprise. my message to today’s youth: “you must be the wind blowing the answer – not those who are waiting for answers blowing in the wind”

I am a 22 year old guy and I’ve always lived in Padua, an Italian city near Venice. I never undertook art studies, I’ve studied in Scientific high school and after I had to choose who I wanted to be, so I tried the test of entry to the Academy of Fine Arts in Venice, after being admitted, I decided to take the road of design, without leaving my passion for drawing that I had since I was a child. In June 2014, however, I could not wait any longer and decided to paint and since then I have not stopped. In my work, I try to improve the quality of life around me, making the other person happier with my paintings. In fact, before I finish the paintings I ask the subject to finish the work with one final brush stroke made by her/him. In my work I use mainly primary colors, for everyone, because we are all equal, then I wonder what color is the soul of who I paint, and there the people are extremely precise (for example, they not just say green, but say green forest, green leaf etc.), so in the final brush stroke they use them, because if the portrait is beautiful, its thankfully due to the subject, to the person him/herself. In fact, if the people wouldn’t exist all this beauty wouldn’t be around us.

Salman Soofi | Artwork

I’ve always felt it in my fingers and in my toes that I can paint. I had had this feeling for several years and one fine day I decided to start. Surprisingly I’ve chosen expressionism to be my core style which is eventually the best medium to transfer my ideas and philosophies to the canvas. My journey started like Marco Polo’s When I left my country at the age of seven. Wandering around different parts of the world I was actually learning about different cultures and art. Every stone, pebble and flower inspired me.

I consider myself as a divine artist, most of the paintings are not planned the way they appear now as final artworks. There are many which are buried under them because some canvases are used several times. The faces appear unintentionally most of the time in my paintings and many ideas and concepts are simultaneously running in my mind when I start a new artwork. Sometimes I could finish a painting in an hour or two and sometimes it takes several hours and days. I start with one concept and end up doing a totally different one. The process takes me into a sort of trance, I am usually in a state of passion where thoughts and ideas melt within my soul and transform into figures and shapes. This state of transformation is so out of control that most of the times I leave the brush and start painting with my hands.

Most of my paintings address social issues like starvation, alcoholism or anguish of wars.I also try to bring harmony depicting nature, glimpses of natural elements in a minimalistic style. There is so much beauty in this world, we just need to open our internal eyes to it. Like a famous writer once expressed “the seeing people don’t see”.

If I need to describe my work in one line I would say that “I unintentionally peek into my subconscious to transfer the divine messages on the canvas.”

Noni Tavla | Artwork

Published

Alisaxni is the artistic pseudonym of the painter Noni Tavla from Greece. Noni is a self-taught painter. She was born in Athens on 28 May 1984. Being the daughter of a harbor official, she grew up by the sea filled with inspiration for her. She has been living at Adikira Viotias for last few years, a town 170km far from Athens.

She presented her first individual painting exhibition in June 2011. Since then, another five individual as well as plenty of collective exhibitions have followed.

Her works of art are not only based on personal moments but also on moments of people close to her. Her artistic pseudonym have been inspired by the poet Odysseus Elitis and more specifically by the sea, which is the poet’s favorite resource.

In conclusion, I would like to advise young children, to stick to their dreams and ambitions and never give up.If you feel that you are of worth don’t hesitate,pursue what you deserve in life.

Hard times do exist, but they don’t last for ever.They come and go. Skill develops only after painful effort has been made.Don’t cry to give up,cry only to try. It is a must to get rid of the losers you live with,if you desire to realize your dreams.

Joerg Heitz | Artwork

My name is Joerg Heitz, I studied graphic design and am currently living in South Germany. I’m also a member of the Abstract Art Academy (a worldwide union of people interested in publishing art to a greater audience.

As graphic designer and artist, I was inspired by Francis Bacon, Andy Warhol, Jackson Pollock as well as graffiti artist and realistic portrait painting of all kinds. Despite of that I’m also interested in music.

With the creation of my current series I connected those two passions of mine through painting musicians and personalities who embossed me in my own musical career.

My message to today’s youth: Do your thing with respect, dignity, diversity, concentration, happiness and love. Don’t believe in everything a master is telling you, he might be unaware as well. But save everything which is bringing you further. Because it might help you with your career  and always listen to your heart and the art while flow through your veins.

I was born in a beautiful, small village, which was placed near the river was called Prut. It separates two countries-  Moldova and Romania. The beauty of picturesque and wild nature surrounded me during my childhood. In the depths of the magic Oak forests, in summer I collected various berries, flowers and animals surrounding flavors and walked until sunset with other children. Since my childhood I felt how important it is to save and be careful with nature. I’ve loved painting since childhood, but the importance of the arts I betrayed in 22 years age. The source of ideas and inspirations for me is the nature -both green nature and animals, especially I love elephants..

The choice of my journeys often depends on whether there are elephants. They are great, very clever, kind and so big.

My next exhibition will be devoted only elephants.

Unfortunately not all people understand and properly relate to nature. They litter, scratch and don’t feel at the same time neither remorse nor the consequences that will follow it, and in fact, without nature we will just become robots, machines without a soul.. I  would like to convey and encourage all people in the world to protect the nature around us.

A Nigerian by birth, I am a graduate of Biochemistry department University of Benin. I am a self thought artist who is passionate about the beauty of nature and our fragile earth. I major in landscape and abstracts also portraiture, seascape and still life. pastel is my choice for painting because of its unique blend. impressionism has been a style I admire and use a lot.

As a self trained artist, it wasn’t easy at first but determination kept me pushing. I started drawing at a tender age and built skills over time. I would spend more time painting while I was in university instead of studying biochemistry. Encouragement from friends,especially family, kept me on track.
I have my works displayed in the hall of the secondary school I attended. Also some in the church i used to attend while in university. Other works are displayed and collected by private collectors including a former chairman of a leading bank in Nigeria (United Bank for Africa), Chief Israel C. Ogbue.
