About the Artist
I ONCE FOUND A SMALL ACTION FIGURE LYING ON THE FLOOR. I PICKED IT UP AND FELT I WAS RESCUING A SURVIVOR WHO HAD MADE IT THROUGH A VERY DIFFICULT LIFE. THAT DAY I WAS INSPIRED TO LOOK FOR A WAY TO COMBINE MANY OF THESE FORGOTTEN TOYS INTO A SCULPTURAL WORK AND CREATE NEW ICONS, SHAPED BY HUNDREDS OF DIFFERENT STORIES COEXISTING IN HARMONY AND BREATHING LIFE INTO A NEW BEING... A BEING THAT WILL HOPEFULLY LIVE MUCH LONGER.

Valentina Bilbao’s art is gently encapsulating, where such harmonious movement Appears to have an alluring effect, almost as if it were to pull the viewer into the canvas. The inspiration for the motion and color in each of her paintings is a reflection of the Music which she listens to while painting, specific to each individual piece.

Jon Gilchrist is a self-taught abstract artist born in 1975 in Oklahoma City. Later in life Jon was exposed to contemporary art and found himself more drawn to abstract art, due to his introduction to artists such as Joan Mitchell, Mark Rothko, Sam Francis, Robert Motherwell, Norman Lewis, and Romare Bearden. Jon mostly expresses these influences through his use of texture, materials, arrangement, application, and elevating his own brand of social commentary to a more universal stature. Painting allows Jon to share his story, and his soul, in hopes that this strikes a nerve – that it resonates.
“PERSISTENCE” Any goal is achievable if you persevere in achieving it. I depicted a woman on the hood of the Ferrari car, and there is no coincidence. Ferrari has the symbol of a horse, at least that's what the company says, and in my work it symbolizes a horse. In some cultures there is such an expression - "to ride the horse", it means to be at the top of the game, to become a winner, to get what you want. And Persistence is the key to success.
My paintings are inspired by my dreams; I do not choose dreams, nor do I choose what to paint. I create with symbols, lines, colors, canvas on canvas juxtaposing composition. Painting or drawing in a style of automatism, unleashes my imagination expressing emotions and desires, allowing me to create the unknown; The way I see my artworks is a response from my live experience that projected into a poetic theme.
The Last Supper
Comprised of 13 individual and unique pieces inspired by Leonardo Da Vinci’s Last Supper mural, painted during the Italian High Renaissance dated 1495 -1498.
Each sculpture represents our last supper should we not act immediately and do something about Climate change and the rising water level.
In Da Vinci’s, Last Supper , he captures the moment in which Christ tells his apostles “Truly, truly I say to you, one of you will betray me “
In our case, all of us have betrayed our beautiful planet and it will take all of us united, not only to undo all the damage we have created but to help each other through the consequences of our actions.
Each piece has a different color acrylic signifying the different colors of the oceans, including the receding Ice cap. The Jesus figure is in gold.
The materials used in each sculpture are recycled and reused materials.
The entire 13 pieces will be in the MuFe Museum of Contemporary Art Permanent Collection in Cancun Mexico, starting in May 2023.
Fabia Nitti Expresses her quest for life in simple geometric shapes with complex questions surrounding them. One of her sculptures, the Square? Transforms the artist into a superimposed sequence based on real life, due to the perfection of the square shape. Day to day life experiences are shown to form episodes of life.
In this artwork I wanted to transmit the inseparable connection between nature and human being, the connection of the energy of the earth with the energy of woman. They intersect like neural networks in our minds. And this common energy gives birth and creates the world around us.
