“I think that kind of spontaneity allows us to capture a certain authenticity, and the result is the pure essence of expression wrapped in serendipity.” 

I believe the most profound art is the art of life itself, I am a character-driven as an artist and storyteller, I set out to tell stories of the self, explore themes relevant to humanity, and ponder what it really means to be a part of this strange tribe of earthlings.
Herein lies my love for portraiture. Anytime I orchestrate a photoshoot, I try to give my subjects the freedom to be themselves completely. I like working off the energy of other people in candid locations and just seeing where the wind takes us. That’s when magic happens.

“We are all loners in our imaginary worlds”

I do art photography and a bit of drawing. Everything I’ve done, learnt and developed is  self-taught. It’s a shame, I should have gone to art school, but my previous and present situation does not allow me to do so. However, it does not stop me from  pursuing arts as one of my professions.

Cory Hoang

Photographer, Artist.

A self-taught artist/photographer/graphic designer. I have been doing arts roughly for 3 years. I am passionate about art photography and drawing. I use these media to express my feelings about the world. Most of my stuff is very dark, depressing but authentic. If you felt any of my arts it relates to your personal life, we would become friends. For my art perspective I relatively focus on dark subjects which express the dark side of this world, where there is not so much happiness, but mostly sadness. Some of the works are related to my personal stories and feelings. My style might cause the audience some traumas but I guess everyone at the end would understand why.

DROTHY BHAWL

PHOTOGRAPHY AND SCULPTURE 

Always investigated the contradictions and aberrations of contemporary society, in particular on addiction to social networks, on racism, on ideological fanaticism and on discrimination in general; he does so by setting up his unmistakable photographic sets, with unreal, acid colors that define a grotesque sense of melancholy.

DOROTHY BHAWL IS PHOTOGRAPHY SCULPTURE AND MORE ...

Dorothy Bhawl (nowhere, 1985) Photographer sculptor and avanguard art, the artist comunicates through painting, sculpture on a particular paste of his own invention and engraving on glass to highlight human aberrations through monstrous reconstructions of
human anatomy, often mixed with tech objects and multinational logos.

In 2015 he won the Corpus
Hominis competition for the construction of the monumental altarpiece of the S. Agata Church in Brescia. 

 

Its themes are investigated by reconstructing a mystical and esoteric, fascinating and complex aology in a real context, in which multiple objects, multicolor trinkets, conceptual signs, combined with
the art of disguise are mixed following magical Neo-Pop style alchemy to generate symbols always new meanings, in stark contrast to the codified mass media language.

“I hope to one day write and direct my own work as a full time career”

I’ve been into filmmaking for years, I’m still crafting my niche, but I’ve found that most of my projects. I have a dark tone with a tactical theme in common. What started as me filming random skits with my friends when I was about 13, sparked a passion for filmmaking that I hold to this day. I run a small (but growing) YouTube channel now, where I share my projects, teach editing tutorials, and post documentary style projects. I hope to one day write and direct my own work as a full time career, and I will pursue that dream for as long as it takes.

Also Minimalism essential living has been something I’ve embraced and encouraged for years. I want to try and blend these two passions, I hopefully encourage some people to give living a minimal life a shot and show how it can help you live a simpler life and have a more clear path.

VIDOC-29 EPISODE I

 (Covid-19 Inspired Short Film)

By the year 2029, a vaccine for Covid-19 has been discovered. The virus has become much more aggressive in it’s symptoms and fatality rate. China was the first country to discover a vaccine but held out to the rest of the world until the United States admitted it’s originally brought the virus to Asia. Donald Trump considered holding out an act or war and made threats against China, worrying many Americans. The vaccine became public when a Chinese whistleblower leaked to scientists around the world how they made the vaccine. It’s super limited supply meant only the highest ranking Religious Leaders, Politicians, and Billionaires (most of whom are infected at this point) were first in line to be vaccinated. When news of this broke, there was a civil uproar. In 2029, the United States of America is now without a Federal Government. The States and towns operate within their own laws.

"Waves in Motion"

 Nature provides a canvas to her camera. The images are proven that just like water creativeness flows even out of focus and often distorted they create emotion.  Shooting waves and the sky are one of Larissa’s subject matter.

There are unique time capsuled images that are photographed spontaneously without any planned set up.
