Stefan Belzig By Stefan Beltzig

Born in Bavaria in 1944, the son of a Berlin film maker and dealer in Oriental Antiquities, Stefan Beltzig attempted at first to turn his back on the artistic milieu in which he was raised, dropped out of school and joined a circus troop as an acrobat. After leading the life of a vagabond, which enabled him to travel in India and the Near East, he began to study art. From 1963 to 1964 he worked at Shiraz and Isfahan in Iran where he took up ceramics and sculpture. After a formal study of art and graduation from the Academy of Art in Munich with First Prize in painting in 1973, he began to emphasize realism and trompe l’oeil- effects in his works. From 1979 on, his attention turned solely to drawing. His work and aaditional information can be found at www.stefanbeltzig.com and www.stefan-beltzig.artistwebsites.com.

Fall 2010 Issue

Sebastian Wahl By Sebastian Wahl

Using labor-intensive hand-collage techniques Wahl’s works on paper often harmonize concentric composition strategies with elements of landscape and narrative. Unlike many contemporary collage artists Wahl’s astonishingly detailed works are executed without digital processes. A resin-coating technique he developed in 2006 lends a three-dimensional quality and an illuminating texture to each hand-constructed composition.

Spring 2010 Issue

Dino Valls By Dino Valls

As one of the Spanish representatives of the vanguard of figurative art, Valls’ work displays the strong influence of past masters and their studies of the human form. In the early ’90s, Valls began studying the use of egg tempera, adapting and customizing the techniques of Italian and Flemish masters from the fifteenth to seventeenth centuries to create new works in combinations of tempera and oil. His paintings elaborate and expand upon the methods of past masters, employing formal figurative techniques as the medium through which to explore the human psyche in a conceptual framework laden with profound psychological weight and symbolism.
