Bea Sarrias (Barcelona, 1978), an artist from the University of Barcelona, has carried out her pictorial artwork in this city, in which she has found the topics and places that have given birth to the most significant lines of her artistic work.
Her whole artwork has been developed through painting, specifically by means of a realistic technique that finds its main references in the American realism of the 20th century; from where she takes interest on the modernity of conceptual terms and pays close attention to the careful handling of perspective, light, color and a clean brushwork regarding formal terms. This is clearly appreciated in her artwork, inspired in the work of architects as Coderch, Saenz de Oiza, Fisac or Richard Neutra.
The artist paints “portraits of the houses”. She tends to represent the interior parts of the house seen as inhabited locations, despite the complete lack of human figures. This allows you to glimpse the intention of bringing the living subjects that have created a memory of the place through the objects that compose the scenes.
A recent Project of Bea’s, “ INSIDE” for the new NATO headquarter in Brussels. She painted about a week, a portrait about the new headquarter inside itself.
Bea Sarrias has participated in different collective and individual art exhibitions in her native town and Madrid, where the critics and the local media have received her artwork with meaningful acceptance, emphasizing in her conscious and fine use of light and shadows. She has also exhibited in different European cities as Berlin, Oslo and Brussels.

Thomas Nesland Olsen
Thomas Nesland Olsen (f. 1977) works with the figurative painting where he combines classical technices, photorealisme, abstraction and drawing.In his motifs you often find everyday objects that at first glance are perceived harmonically – almost naively harmonically – but in this harmony there is often something more subtle, and the possibilities for interpretation are many. The artis often expresses himself through the still life, portrait and landscape where he places the old genres into the present. Nesland Olsen is Norwegian/American. He is classically schooled and the mixture of the technically accurate and motifs associated with our own time makes his art different and very interresting. His latest series of contemporary portraits shows how skilled he is in the tradition oil painting.

The process is a chase for the unexplored; always seeking to discover something new and exciting. The tangible and the figurative is not important in the process.
