Christopher Gee is an English painter who creates moody and beautiful scenes. He usually paints small intimate portraits of animals and sad boys. He takes his inspiration from folk art and northern Renaissance painting. These mysterious scenes, dominated by the moon, an eclipse or simply a very dark night make the viewer feel like they are entering a story and something is about to happen.

I do like my bath. It’s definitely my favourite way to calm down and get to a more relaxed state of mind. Now, if you give me some cake to go with it, I wouldn’t say no!

Lee Price painted these amazingly realistic self-portraits where she indulges herself with a bath and some sweet treats. Questioning the desire vs guilt relation women often have with food? or simply celebrating the idea of some me-time? I cannot pretend I know what the artist had in mind, but to me these are just beautiful.

I have to admit that I am not usually a great fan of abstract art. It simply doesn’t talk or mean anything to me. So when I discovered Koen Lybaert’s work, it was not only a discovery in terms of “oh this is a great artist” but it also made me realize that I could actually like abstract art.

Koen Lybaert is a Belgian painter who paints mainly abstract and landscapes. He uses different medias and tools, like photography, watercolours, oil paintings etc., to create these moods. I also find that even his abstract paintings are very alike to the natural world. They all remind me of forests, lake, mountains. Refreshing!
