Dylan Drennan *1993 in Dublin, Ireland
Vibrant and feverish images. With a focus on forms and figures in various strange states. My images play with notions of desperation, deification, divinity and dread. Juxtaposing depictions of various states of psychological suffering with a playful command of color and intensity of mark making.
Witte Wartena *1976 in Amsterdam received a BA from AKI Enschede and a Mdes from ECA (2006)
As an ‘embedded reporter’ he wants to record his daily life. The detailed registration of his memories is important to him. His drawings are like a diary or personal photo album to him. He tries to break free from the rules and customs that he has imposed on himself and which have limited him. He has exhibited widely in Europe as well as in the US and Asia. In 2016 he was nominated for the Foire Internationale du Dessin (FID) in 2020 for the Derwent Art Prize and in 2022 for the Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize.
