Been there or seen there? As today's interactions are mainly virtual it's more likely you've seen it online. The Illusions exhibition is inspired by our perception of today's interactions with media.

About the artists:

Aziya: Aziya was born in the USSR. She received her first bachelor's degree in fine arts at Empire State University of New York State College in 2010. Aziya sees the artist’s role as an independent observer, visualizing current trends and phenomena that affect our world. This guides her to address the prevalence of popular culture in everyday life and relevant issues. In the Illusions series, Aziya presents figurative and surrealistic compositions constructed with the imagery that's conveyed by everyday media content.

Johannes Ehemann: Schwabach native spent his earlier years as a professional ice Hockey player later transitioning to his true passion, art. Ehemann’s artworks surpass the traditional boundaries of figurative surrealism using a self-develop Technik of crumbling polaroid photographs and turning them into large-scale artworks on wood and acrylic glass this unique technique strikes a nerve on collectors of all ages

Lee Wagstaff: Berlin-based artist from London studied at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design and the Royal College of Art in London and Kyoto City University of Arts, Kyoto, Japan. Has exhibited his body, large-format photographic self-portraits, and graphite work at art and performance venues worldwide. One performance was featured in the Ornament Und Abstraction show at the Beyeler Foundation, Basel, Switzerland where he was the first Western artist to be featured in the Art Annual, Kobe, Japan.
