Asya Kozina was born on May 5, 1984 in Dnepropetrovsk. Now she lives and works in Russia. The artist creates paper dolls, dresses, clothes, shoes, toys, pictures. The girl was born into a family of artists and since childhood she was fascinated by cutting paper. At first she made just different unusual figures. Then she was engaged in dancing and decided to make it her profession. But because of the injury she had to leave dancing and paper art became very interesting to her. While studying at the university, she studied drawing, painting, sculpture, decorative arts, design, and more, but she finally understood that the paper became for her an inexhaustible source of creativity.
In 2007 she opened her first solo exhibition – White Passion. Since then, there have been many exhibitions and a new series, but work with the white paper became her trademark, and the only material she worked and do experiments with.

Florimond Hervé

Florimond Hervé (1825-1892) was a legendary French composer, father of operetta. He wrote more than 120 operettas, he also wrote masses, motets and other spiritual compositions. The best of his operettas were prompted by stories that he got in… a madhouse.
Very sad seventeen-year-old young man was walking through the streets of Paris. He learned to play the organ, but a professional organist came to the church, which sheltered him. He didn’t have a musical instrument anymore.
Suddenly he heard a voice: “Here’s your future!” And the boy heard the sound of the organ. He saw the old church and decided to enter. The church was silent. Florimond saw the organ and began to play. The priest heard his musical improvisation and came to him: “Providence has led you into, my young friend! We really need an organist!”
Florimond was surprised: “But I heard that someone was playing the organ!”

In recent years Steampunk has become a craft and lifestyle movement. It sometimes associated with cyberpunk.

Rob Gonsalves is a Canadian artist working in the style of magical realism.
He was born in 1959 in Toronto. As a child, Rob constantly developed his interest in drawing. At the age of 12 he started painting. Gonsalves drew his first surrealist paintings when he saw the works of Salvador Dali and Yves Tanguy.

After graduating from college Gonsalves worked as an architect, but also painted theater sets. After the successful exhibition of street art in Toronto in 1990, Gonsalves devoted himself entirely to painting.
His images are always well planned and they are the result of conscious thought. The ideas of the pictures are generated from the outside world and are based on human activity. The artist uses a carefully planned illusion trick. Gonsalves adds magic in the real scene. His painting is an attempt to show people that the impossible is possible.
