Maxim Komissarchik began to paint and make sculptures at a very young age. He made his first gouache painting at the age of seven inspired by the magic and colors of the circus. Born and raised in St. Petersburg, Russia, a place which has inspired three centuries of great artists, he was able to absorb and transform its rich art tradition.

Citrus Heights, CA - If your art is in anyway related to Hardcore or Underground music, whether it be icons used in a given music scene, album covers, or art inspired because of hardcore music please post here. Icons can include but not only things like the Devil, Baphomet, Punk imagery or even members of bands. While I do not like to exclude anyone, I would prefer more aggressive music influence, say Slayer but not the Beatles or Stones.

Arlington, VA - Fresh Paint Magazine Blog, December 30, 2014. "Ann Marie Coolick"
“Using only palette knives and paint straight from the tube, Ann Marie is an expressionist impasto painter focusing on colorful and bold contemporary landscapes and abstract pieces. Relying primarily on memory, Ann Marie’s recent body of work references natural elements, including visual enlargements of foliage from her backyard in the city of Arlington, Virginia. She has recently been exploring the process of abscission and the seasonal shedding of leaves and bark from trees. She slathers frosting-like paint layer upon layer onto the canvas, with paint running off the edges resulting in a sculptural, three-dimensional appearance. Inspired by expressionist artists Joan Mitchell and Frank Auerbach, Ann Marie considers her style a blend of expressionism and impressionism. She has three young boys who no doubt influence her energetic and lively painting style.
