LINA Jusevičiūtė

Living in Lithuania, France, The Netherlands and Denmark inspired her to go beyond cultural constructions and get in touch with the poetry and longing that connect all humans. 

Thanks to photography, observation of light and shadows became her meditative practice to which she also invites others.

 

Joining this network is another opportunity to collaborate with different artists, observe each other‘s vision of life, and get inspired to dive deeper into creation from which emerges all improvement.

Lara Gomez

LARA GOMEZ

Lara's art often resembles themes that are a combination of nature and feminity. She works on her visual pieces experimenting with different languages and concepts through illustrations and letters (including typography, and mural art).

Her featured works "Bloom" and "Spring" are from a project called Bloom. Lara describes the project on her website as "a conversation about womanhood, nature, emotions and the ephemeral". In contrast, she expresses different emotions below. "Ausencia" (left) depicts "the loss or distraction of consciousness or being", and "Jaula" which regards "internal or external cages people often carry".

 

To her, she believes, "Europe is an open source to share, learn, and accept our different life experiences, identities, and ways of being without barriers".

Maëva LE ROUX

Her artistic work focuses on symbolism. The high contrast in the colors translates to the existing tensions between recurrent and opposing concepts: nature and culture, life and death, figurative and abstract. The paintings are infused with spiritualism whilst representing scientific principles. 

She believes that art should depart from one's introspection, that it should lead individuals to engage in society, in order to find more sustainable ways of life. Hence, she is currently studying Cultural Diplomacy, focusing on the capacity of Art and Culture to build bridges between nations.
