Andrew Atroshenko paintings

 His paintings of women are amongst the most sensuous I have ever seen.

Andrew Atroshenko was born in 1965 in the city of Pokrovsk, Russia. Accepted as a gifted child in 1977 into the Children's Art School, Andrew graduated with honors in 1981.

Two years later, Atroshenko entered Bryansk Art College, and in 1991 was accepted at one of the most prestigious art schools in the world, the St. Petersburg Academy of Art.
In 1994, Andrew began taking part in exhibitions such as St. Petersburg Artists in Reutlingen, Germany, the exhibition of a group "Academy" in St. Petersburg (1996), and "Teacher's memory" (1997).
After graduation from St. Petersburg Academy of Art in 1999, Andrew was invited by a New England, US based art group "Bay Arts" to take part in their exhibitions and activities, spending that entire year in the United States into the Millennium.

In 1992 Atroshenko married a fellow student, Maria, who is now an art critic in St Petersburg, Russia, and has a daughter named Alexandra. Like many artists, Andrew has his artistic references and influences, but his wife and daughter are the inspiration for his passion.

Natalie Shau amazing art

Natalie Shau is illustrator and photographer from Lithuania (Vilnius). She works mainly in digital media and Natalie’s works are mixture of her photography, digital painting and 3D elements. She enjoys creating surreal and strange creatures, fragile and powerful at the same time. Natalie’s style was influenced a lot by religious imagery, fairytales illustrations classic horror literature and Russian classic literature such as Fyodor Dostoevsky, Nikolai Gogol etc.

Natalie Shau constantly keeps working on her own personal artwork and exhibitions, but also enjoys creating illustrations for music bands, fashion designers and writers. Her illustrations for Lydia Courteille jewelry campaign were published in french VOGUE magazine.

I fell in love with her art.

In the mood to travel

I travel not to go anywhere, but to go.  I travel for travel's sake.  The great affair is to move.  ~Robert Louis Stevenson

 The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.  ~St. Augustine

The traveler was active; he went strenuously in search of people, of adventure, of experience.  The tourist is passive; he expects interesting things to happen to him.  He goes "sight-seeing."  ~Daniel J. Boorstin  

The most important trip you may take in life is meeting people halfway.  ~Henry Boye 

Travel and change of place impart new vigor to the mind.  ~Seneca

One’s destination is never a place, but a new way of seeing things. ~Henry Miller

When you travel, remember that a foreign country is not designed to make you comfortable. It is designed to make its own people comfortable. ~Clifton Fadiman

Travel is the frivolous part of serious lives, and the serious part of frivolous ones.  ~Anne Sophie Swetchine 
A guest never forgets the host who had treated him kindly. ~Homer 
One always begins to forgive a place as soon as it's left behind. ~Charles Dickens 
Travel has a way of stretching the mind. The stretch comes not from travel's immediate rewards the inevitable myriad new sights smells and sounds but with experiencing firsthand how others do differently what we believed to be the right and only way. ~Ralph Crawshaw
If you reject the food ignore the customs fear the religion and avoid the people you might better stay at home.  ~James A. Michener
