Guillermo Andrés Lorca García Huidobro (b.1984, Chile)

Guillermo Andrés Lorca García Huidobro is a very talented young artist from Chile. He received his BA in Arts from the Catholic University of Chile and was an apprentice and assistant of the remarkable Norwegian painter Odd Nerdrum. Children and dogs are often the central figures in the works that the Chilean painter has been developing in recent years, combining realism with beauty of the grotesque. Since 2001, Guillermo Lorca has participated in several solo and group exhibitions, most recently in the Chilean National Museum of Fine Arts in Santiago. (cf. El Hurgador [Arte en la Red])

Visarute Angkatavanich (Thailand)

Bangkok-based photographer Visarute Angkatavanich captures some of the most elegant portraits of fish. His intimate, crystal-clear photos of Siamese fighting fish (betta) make it seem as though they are suspended in air instead of water. Angkatavanich recently told Popular Photography that he only started photographing the fish after encountering them for the first time three years ago at a fish show and has since become obsessed with the different species which vary greatly in size, shape, and color patterns. Limited edition prints of his work are now available through La Lanta Fine Art. (src. Colossal) © All images courtesy of the artist
