Magda Knap is a Dutch female artist, who has been producing painting since the sixties, running expositions in Amsterdam, Gouda and many other Dutch cities in various museums. All painting are oil paintings, painted on canvas. Her paintings contain stories taking place in unnatural landscapes with trees carrying thousands of leaves, flowers, butterflies and fishes. If there are people present, they hide in the landscapes. And where faces surface, they freeze into masks. This is how Magda translates her thoughts and emotions. Magda, tells about resisting human cruelty, aggression and against superficial creativity. Those submitting to the pictures, inspired by the titles, will find his/her own story of struggle and success. https://oliveandlatte.myshopify.com/collections/artists-magda-knap-3
Andy Yang (b. 1973, Malaysia) is a visual artist based in Singapore. Andy received his fine art education from the renowned Malaysian Institute of Art in Kuala Lumpur, and graduated in 1994. Thereafter, Andy enjoyed a successful career as designer.In the mid 2000s, a trip abroad took him vis-à-vis artworks by artists such as Jackson Pollock and Pablo Picasso. The profound impression left on him by these experiences led him to broaden the horizons of his creativity and to explore visual artistic languages.Since then Andy has been participating in numerous group and solo exhibitions, including Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? at The Substation Gallery (2010), Emotions at Instinc Gallery (2011), Abstract innovations at One East Asia Gallery (2013), Existential Passages at K+ Scott’s Square (2016), and The Many Glimpses of Drama at Art Forum Gallery (2017).Early on, Andy became fascinated by the abstract form, and by the flamboyancy of the colour gold. It was as if the power of the equatorial sun had landed and scattered on his canvases bringing to life the other colours, as in Flashbacks (2011).
