Artist Uta Tiggesmeier creates large-scale drawings and sculptures characterised by bold lines and forms. She uses sensual materials including plaster, jesmonite, bones, clay, bronze, blown and cast glass and contrasts them with forged iron or found natural material. She draws on canvas, strong monolithic beings, whose authority emerge line after line as from a distant memory. Coalescing ancestral symbolism and underlying sexuality, her sculptures take the form of anthropomorphic totems with a primitive and mystical presence.


Uta’s imagination explores parallel worlds, touching on animist mythologies and fertility cults. Her work translates stories, emotions and tensions into organic shapes, often alluding to female forms or the interplay of female and male forces.


Her images evoke the myths through which human beings have tried to make sense of their existence in the physical and spiritual world. Acknowledging different world views past and present, Uta questions the behaviour of superiority and entitlement in contemporary societies.


The large hollow clay sculptures with abstracted female forms, 'The Three Bethen', are inspired by the Great Goddess myth, an important part of the research of archeo-mythologist Marija Gimbutas on prehistoric European civilisations. Clay objects (utilitarian or artistic) are an intimate revelation of human needs and the artist is interested in researching what links civilisations and their artistic expressions.


These unusual yet familiar female forms that ressemble enormous vessels are fleshy, sexual yet architectural at the same time. They stand tall in a strong and static poise on a geometrical basis. And then they offer openings, flowering buds, sharp bird beaks, outreaching horns in the form of fertile crescents.

Reflecting on the role of art in personal and collective experiences, Uta has extended the boundaries of her practice in recent years by performative installations for public participation and by architectural models for a playful use of public space.


Uta is a visual artist working from studios in London and Arles. She has participated in 20+ group exhibitions and 3 solo shows internationally. She has carried out private commissions successfully. She has also done sculpture installations in public sites and sculpture parks. She works in collaboration with architects and craftsmen.

Gemini.H focuses on everyday's little moments to echo the elegance of days gone by. She uses color pencils in her illustrations to tell simple stories, with a touch of nostalgia and to emphasize beauty in the ordinary as a way of injecting some nostalgia into a world that is always going faster and growing bigger.

Nature as a reference and primary medium is what inspires the artist the most. It is also a guide for her choices in terms of practice, composition and theme to address concerns that interest her.


By working in colour pencil, I cultivated a "nostalgic aesthetic". It's an approach which also allows me to incorporate my fondness for old movies, antique furniture, and illustration from between 1900 and 1960. But it's very important to me to use my vision, taste and personality as a 21st-century woman.

Gemini. H. started her professional career during her years in Seoul (South Korea), mostly working on private commissioned pieces, and by working on personal projects that she exhibited during shows and festivals.


Gemini.H artwork has been exhibited during solo and group shows in galleries in Seoul and USA. Her more recent works have been shortlisted for online collective exhibitions by King house gallery (UK) and VAA (visual artists association).

Levan Amashukeli is a self-taught multimedia Artist, founder of art direction ZMUDART, and NFT creator from Tbilisi, Georgia, but based in Berlin. His work reflects his innermost thoughts and feelings. He uses a combination of colors and images to create dreamlike, fragmentary works that give a glimpse into the chaotic world of the subconscious.

Levan's works are known for their strong emotional undercurrents, which are a direct reflection of his reactions to the world around him. Through his art, Levan aims to explore the depths of the human psyche and invite the viewer on a journey of self-knowledge and introspection.

In addition to his traditional art, he is also known for his innovative use of NFTs. This technology allows him to create unique digital artworks that can be bought and sold on blockchain platforms, offering a new perspective on the traditional art world.

As an artist, I strive to push the boundaries of the creative process by using multimedia techniques to add depth and meaning to my work. I am constantly searching for new ways to express my innermost thoughts and emotions, hoping to inspire and engage my audience along the way.

Levan has participated in various Group Exhibitions, Solo Shows, Residencies, and art Fairs.

Elias Avramidis - Drawing - Greece / UK

Elias Avramidis is a visual artist based in East London. His work often deals with the human figure within an aquatic geometry of colours. Thematically, he has been dealing with imaginary islands and contemporary mysticism through icons and hagiography.


Elias's practice involves colour pencils and crayons on textured paper. The human figures are based on live models which he photographs, keeping them uncoloured so that they appear as alien and unintegrated as possible in the aquatic environment. This is both an ecological metaphor and a way of expressing the anthropocenic peculiarity of our planetary emplacement.


My art represents the tension between artistic creativity/ freedom and structural oppression. While I’m expressing the need of freedom through my art, I put a lot of physical pressure on myself due to the intensity of the way I use the watercolour pencils. I performatively engage with the tension arising from structure (pattern drawing) through this physically demanding technique that takes its toll on my hands. I often wonder whether my way out of tension is to go deeper into the tension.

The geometrical patterns represent the outside environment, which puts pressure on the humanoid figures. These figures are essentially based on Elias body and always find themselves struggling between the illusionary promise of an open horizon (that has been taken over by an oppressive structure) and the turbulence of waters or voids in which they are dipped.
