I present the 10 most interesting artists of the contemporary art scene; by the influence they will have in the next five years you need to know them and recognize their works whose value will increase exponentially.

Keltie Ferris

Keltie shows at Horton Gallery, which is one of my favorite NYC galleries. I started getting to know her work when I included her in a group show I curated called ‘The Open’ with Jeffrey Deitch and Dodie Kazanjian (the contributing editor for Vogue) and she was clearly one of the most exciting artists there. She has a super sophisticated approach to depth and surface that engages with the history of abstract expressionism, but her paintings feel totally rebellious and of the moment. Keltie is currently on view at Addison Gallery.

Evan Gruzis

I’ve been a big fan of Evan’s since he showed with us in ’08 when I was at Deitch Projects. There’s this first impression that his works (especially those on paper) are perfect, almost mechanized. It is a flat and graphic quality that’s totally at odds with the watercolor and ink-on-paper mediums. Each image feels iconic but still disrupted, and what’s really exciting is how he’s really pushed these ideas forward in his video and sculpture as well.

Marco Battaglini

Through a subtle interplay of multiple realities overlapping in the chronotope, Battaglini evidences the contradictions in mental models about the temporal contrast (chronological), and the cultural and linguistic barriers.

Compositions which at first seem ‘logicals’, immediately reveal temporal and spatial limitations that are disruptive in the interpretation of reality.

Battaglini invites us to think that in today’s global village, with the ‘democratization’ of culture, the evolution of knowledge, information immediacy, immersed in the heterogeneity, the Patchwork Culture forces us to confront with a need understanding beyond our geographical boundaries of time.

Marco is currently on view at Saatchi Gallery

Elaine Cameron Weir

I first saw Elaine’s work at this really cool gallery in Brooklyn called Regina Rex. There was this one tall, slim wooden rod leaning against the wall that at first seemed like a simple minimal gesture, but when you looked at it up close it was covered in dried tobacco leaves and it had this really distinct sweet smell. There was another vertical concrete stacked work that smelled of perfume. I was really excited about the actual material transforming or embodying a key characteristic of an object. Elaine can be seen at a solo show this spring at NYC’s Ramiken Crucible.

Simon Fairless

Simon Fairless is a new and emerging British artist. His ideas and aesthetics spill into Landscapes, Seascapes and Figurative paintings, Still Life and Abstract works. He has exhibited his work throughout the United Kingdom and has works in private collections throughout the world. By using iconic images from contemporary life, the artist creates pop images that glow with colour and life. His varied portfolio moves through glistening abstractions to cityscapes and town scenes. Familiar London streets are recreated with a feeling of light and an understanding of the language of colour. We are very pleased to bring you this popular and talented painter.

Christian  Furr

At the Age of 28, Christian Furr became the youngest artist to officially paint Queen Elizabeth II. Furrs paintings echo his cheeky sense of humor, painting the Queen with a twinkle in her eye. Varied, skillfull and hugely popular, Furr remains one of the most constantly popular artists on the site. Whether tackling celebrity portraits or enigmatic scenes of modern life, he paints with joy, ambition and talent. Take a look and prepare to be impressed by this hugely capable painter.

Sophy Bristol

Bristol’s natural ability to manipulate color and form combined with her sensitive approach to translating human emotion on to a two-dimensional picture plane, results in some enthralling and optimistic figurative paintings of animated human activity. Based in London, her work has been exhibited in London, the USA, South Africa and Singapore.

Steven Lynch

Steven Lynch is a UK artist who mainly works in oil on canvas. His work is predominantly figurative although he also produces wonderfully expressive seascapes, landscapes and cityscapes. Steven Lynch has his work in private collections throughout the UK. Whether he is creating provocative, affordable street art, or working on his series of beach dwelling characters, he creates skillful and attractive work that is reasonably priced. In other work he paints the everyday, some might say mundane, objects of the modern world in a nostalgic way. One of our best selling artists, we look forward to representing Lynch for a long time to come.

Crisp, vibrant and sharp, Slava’ Groshev’s figurative work could easily lull you into thinking that it is, or at the very least, uses digital photography in its creation. Don’t be fooled… Slava’s beautiful works follow in the footsteps of some of the great painting masters of our time, and are in fact created with the old fashioned paint brush. An unquestionable abundance of talent has lead to Slava’s works held in private collections in Canada, America and throughout Europe and have become the investors choice.

Horacio Cardozo

Horacio Cardozo’s desire to understand the inherent relationship between human nature, the universal order, and the underlying reality, leads him to create images that attempt to explain that which defies reason. Cardozo was born in Argentina, where he studied Architecture and Design at Buenos Aires University and Philosophy at Del Salvador University. In 1987 his drawing skills and admiration for fine arts, especially those of the Renaissance period, led him to explore a career in painting. Horacio is currently living in Auckland, New Zealand where he works as a Graphic Artist and continues to develop his artistic career.

Kate Kessling

Kate Kessling is an exciting new artist working in a broad range of media. She has long been fascinated with buttons and has one of the largest collections of buttons in the UK. Her ‘ button pieces’ are vast mosaics; each piece containing over two thousand individually sewn buttons. Using the latest in high resolution digital printing, Kate has discovered a new and vibrant technique with which to produce her button images. Each print is produced in a small edition on Fine Art paper to Archival standards by Contrary Press. Kate exhibits widely and she recently sold out at the Affordable Art Fair in Battersea. She is currently working on a set of her prints for Habitat which will be launched in 2008. Kate Kessling was born 1967 and studied at Goldsmiths, London, in the late 1980’s.
