Maybe you've noticed I really dig still lifes. I've been doing that a long time before I ever touched a camera, admiring stills from the 15th century up to contemporary works since I was a little brat. So it's quite natural I picked up some dArtists who focus on still lifes, and three of them I want to introduce today to appreciate their awesomeness and give back some of the good feelings I get from watching their outstanding work.

The first of them is Irina Prikhodko from Belarus, whose mastership is far beyond discussion. You know her on dA by the name of Daykiney (see link). She definitely knows how to handle her gear and set up a proper composition and lighting. It's hard to believe she's not a full-time pro when you watch her pictures. But besides technical excellence, she also has a great knack for the emotive and sensual qualities of her objects, for celebration, for seasons and traditions. And what amazes me most is her ability to switch between the formal languages of different centuries, reaching out from 17th century masters to modern still life photography, just feeling right into the groove of the time and depicting it, never missing the point, it's always bull's eye. This is awesome in more than one way, check her out here and find out yourselves:

Second, it's Luciuuu I want to introduce to you. She is from Poland, and her beautiful, emotive and soulful still lifes are just knocking me straight out of my socks. I'm taking a deep bow to her delicate, subtle feeling for colour and shape, for composition, texture and lighting. All her pics are filled with light and air. And more than that, she's found a way to play with blur and sharpness in an elaborate layer technique that's really fresh, amazing and surprising when you take your time to look at the details, which I strongly recommend. Luciuuu shows me that it doesn't take a lot of props or an abundant setup to create a stunning visual impact. She is never showing more than four or five objects in her compositions, but they're arranged in such a perfect way that it fills the frame perfectly and just makes me freak out. Her creations are delightful, easy, colourful like a summer morning; when you think that art is all about enjoying life, Luciuuu can definitely enhance your everyday experience moving from mere visual pleasure to finest visual art. Don't miss her gallery and be sure to watch her, I just love her works:

Third and last for today, it's KangTengri whom I wish to be mentioned here, an artist from Italy. His name is Giancarlo Guzzardi, and he is doing a lot more than stills, but it was his still lifes that brought me on his track first and made me watch him. I love his approach to visual arts as he sums it up in his dA ID, photography being „a transposition, a transition from a concretely real situation, synthesized and made unique and unreal by the photographer“ - well, that's quite a neat description I would subscribe to. Studying his gallery I got the impression of a very thoughtful, very sensitive, receptive and creative person who does not only capture visual impressions, but connects them with general ideas, playing with reality, enrichening sensual experience with fantasy and emotion. I love to stroll along his gallery and watch his beautiful creations, I love how deep he's digging into visual experience and how serious he is about it, his precision, thoroughness and honesty, and I'm sure you'll love it, too. He's definitely devoted to what he's doing, which is to me the definition of an artist. Meet him here and enjoy:
