Carlos Revilla was born August 19, 1940 in Clermont-Ferrand, France, the son of a Peruvian diplomat and a French mother. His father’s profession took young Revilla to several countries in Europe, Latin America and the United States. Between 1956 and 1961 he was a student at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Amsterdam with his first exhibitions presented in Brussels, Paris and Rome. While living in Cadaqués, Spain, he formed a strong friendship with Salvador Dali, Man Ray and Marcel Duchamp who had great creative impact on him and his surrealist style. In search of his roots, from 1960 he traveled to Peru, the country he felt was his true home. His distinguished career is rewarded by Ramazzotti award in Milan, the Prix Europe of Ostende and countless exhibitions in major museums and galleries in Europe, Latin America and United States. Revilla’s paintings are included in important private collections around the world which demonstrates the great international recognition of his art. His paintings, though surrealist, are characterized by the eroticism and strong presence of female figures. The portraits and figures merge with other elements, colors blending together into organic forms or contrasting with images of war machinery. The perception of reality is altered and the play on absurd is intriguing yet harmonious.
Illustrator Dima Rebus was born in a small town in Russia in 1988 and graduated from art school in Moscow in 2011. He now works on a wide range of projects ranging from his personal artwork to illustrations for magazines and other publishing houses. I really enjoy the edgy, somewhat unsettling nature of his work, there’s a strange sort of tension in every piece that really makes it stand out. You can see much more over on Dima Rebus.
Indefinite means something that lasts for an unknown or unstated length of time. This projects shows struggles and fighting through a series of contemporary photographies which hopefully any viewer can relate to.

On the Boundaries of Darkness by Anton Semenov. Anton Semenov is a digital illustrator from Bratsk, Russia who creates extraordinary animated portraits and mind-bending dark themed characters and worlds. Anton Semenov is as mysterious as his work. Hiding under the nickname Gloom82 on DeviantArt, this young digital artist living in Bratsk, Russia, has indeed created a very dark universe. Semenov’s post apocalyptic cityscapes and intricate monsters bear the inheritance of H.R. Giger’s alien paintings and sculptures, Philip K. Dick’s disturbed science fiction and H.P. Lovecraft’s genetic horrors.
