Miljan Suknovic is a Serbian - American visual artist.

Everybody is able to create, but not everyone is able to take risks or handle the challenges of creation. Charles Bukowski said: “What matters most is how you walk through the fire.”

Suknovic studied art and architecture in Belgrade, Prague, Florence, Hamburg and in New York, where he lives and works. This wide range of experience is evident in his paintings, which are constantly evolving through different forms of art-making and testing the potentials and limits of material, space, and color. Suknovic’s painting has been largely influenced by the Renaissance city of Florence, where he spent seven years. He has exhibited widely on an international scale, with solo shows at New York’s Union Gallery, Slag Gallery and Catherine Ahnell Gallery, Ken's Art Gallery in Florence, Petalouda Art Gallery in Naxos, among others and was the subject of the exhibition “Constellations” at the Museum of Porto Montenegro.

He painted large scale murals in Florence, Bologna and New York and created a painting exhibition-installations at the R. Livingston Beeckman Mansion, Tower 49 and at the World Trade Center's Tower 7 in New York.

Miljan Suknovic's work is represented in many private and public collections worldwide, including acquisitions by the Cosmopolitan Hotel Las Vegas for luxury project Boulevard Penthouses.

Eliana Marinari is a visual artist living and working in Geneva.

Her paintings, created by superposition of glazing layers of aerosol paint on ink and pastel drawings, are a surreal representation of the subject, speaking of both the distorted quality of memory and the ephemeral nature of our experiences. 

The vestigial image composed of transparent imperceptible paint particles, mimics the process of creating a visual representation of an image in our mind, which is matched in our memory to attribute meaning.

Eliana began her training in Florence as a scientist, while studying Art under the mentoring of Greta Villa from Academy of Florence. She continued her studies in London, where she obtained an interdisciplinary PhD at University College London (2008-2011).  In 2012, she continued her studies at Central St Martins, focusing on her studio practice and her interpretation of realism in figurative painting. She then moved to Switzerland, where she continued her quest in bridging the gap between Art and Science. In 2015, she received the prestigious Swiss National Funding Award for the development of an interdisciplinary project.

Her work has been exhibited and held in private collections in Switzerland, Italy and UK and it has been featured by thejealouscurator and BOOOOOOOM among others.
