NOVEMBER FEATURED PM ARITST
PM ARTIST: SANDER STEINS
Sander was born in April 1973 in Nijmegen, The Netherlands. He is an artist who works with varied media and is mainly interested in the rich and dark contrasts of our modern society. His sharp analytical view results in the translation to abstract, semi-abstract paintings, collages, photography and computer generated artworks which characterize his work.
PM ARTIST: NANDOR GLID
Much of Nandor Glid’s story pre-World War II is a mystery to the public - perhaps in part because, like many, he lost all he knew in the Holocaust. Glid was born in Subotica, Yugoslavia (now Northern Serbia). While his family was sent to Auschwitz, he was deported to Szeged, Hungary, where he was forced to work at a labor camp. He managed to escape and join Tito's Yugoslav Partisans, who played a major role in driving German forces out of Yugoslavia. Glid was wounded in March 1945 during a battle in Bolman, Yugoslavia.
PM ARTIST: ARKIV VILMANSA
Indonesian artist Arkiv has been painting, illustrating and designing cartoon like figures since 2005. Shortly after finishing his Bachelor degree in Architecture he plunged into the art world citing his love for drawing figures as his inspiration for this change of career path. Arkiv had a strong debut with his first vinyl figurine titled Arkiv Instant. After Arkiv Instant’s large success, Vilmansa was presented with many exciting opportunities including a redesign of Mickey Mouse for Disney Asia.
