All in Portrait

David Uessem

German hyperrealistic illustrator and artist, David Uessem focuses on figurative styles and portraiture covered in colourful shining liquids. Recognised for his large-scale, photo-realistic and meticulously detailed paintings, Uessem masters the technique in bringing the contrast between illusion and reality. His work has been included in many individual and collective exhibitions in Germany and across Europe.

Isabelle Scheltjens

Developing a unique glass-fusing mosaic technique, Isabelle Scheltjens achieves striking optical effects by capturing the dance of light and colour within her creations. The colourful pieces of glass act as dots of paint used by the pointillists: forming an abstract image up close, yet a dramatic and precise portrait from a distance.

Marco Grassi / Grama

With a fascination for the human form and identity, Marco Grassi creates intense portrait paintings consisting of vibrant colours that challenge the boundaries of pop art. Grassi’s work is composed of pigments directly applied to the canvas with a palette knife, defining texture and character through this layering process, and often adorned with his signature gold leaf technique.

Roberta Coni

Primarily interested in the human form, Roberta Coni focuses on expression and emotions of the present moment. Coni creates large-scale oil paintings which focus on the eyes of her portrait subjects, portraying a sense of realism within her series of works, reminiscent of Flemish old masters.

Sebastian Herzau

Painting both portraits and landscapes, Sebastian Herzau’s artworks share a common blurred, enigmatic effect through his use of soft pastel colours, veiled layering and subtle distortion. Herzau’s unique approach portrays his subjects with an element of mystery, combined with many layers of paint forming a three-dimensional effect within his work, emphasizing the separation between real space and illusion.
