Ella Uzan

8 Mar

“I was born in 1984 in Israel and up until 2 years ago I never would have guessed that photography was to become such an obsession for me.

My passion for taking pictures started to bloom rapidly after graduating from Bezalel Academy in Jerusalem where I studied animation for 4 years. My artwork has been displayed in various galleries around the world and can be seen in different popular fashion magazines as well as in online style sites and inspirational blogs.

My photos endeavour to transmit a particular atmosphere and emotional impact.
I achieve these qualities through the use of different combinations of lights, colours and via classic manipulation techniques that I have picked up over the years. ” (From Ella Uzan Bio on her website)

* I got to know Ella a few years ago thru the poplar social networks we are all accustom to, we never actually met but we did mange to establish  an online friendship which circles our main passion in life, visual expression!

I’ll be honest saying that I truly love her work, it is fresh, colorful and full with emotions, I simply cant get enough of it.  Every time she shares a new series with me I need to pick my jaw up  from the floor, so simple yet so effective, so clean and vibrant yet so hidden and mysterious, it’s basically great photography and I wish her success on her path of self explorations with and without the camera, I really believe she is going to become pretty famous in this field and I for one, will be watching closely…

Simply Delicious! Check more of her style on her website here: ELLA UZAN

Adida Fallen Angel – The Fallen

9 Jan

Basically, Adida has a  serious amount of Artworks which changes it’s shape every few years, he rewrites his CV again and again over time and his life story keeps throwing him into corners he never thought he will end up in, he is  a traveler of both mind and heart and his passion is music above all, then comes the Arts.  He does what he can to survive and follow his  dreams even if it requires extreme sacrifices along the way, it’s all that he cares about, besides that he gets high on sharing and working with others.  Inspiration is his favorite word, right after independence.  Adida in mostly known for his photographic skills and the ability to keep pushing the envelope when it comes to manipulations and graphical exploration of his ever growing techniques.

When he is not sketching, skating or shooting shots you might find him screaming his lungs out in his current musical project called SpoonLicker, where he is singing and recording his first album in Canada along side some very talented musicians.

‘The Fallen’ is a street art series which Adida started when he got stuck in Israel back in mid 2011, his frustration reached such a high level he needed to express himself so badly that his Art started to leak into the streets of Tel-Aviv.

Big Newspaper, Wallpaper glue, wall, paper, night time and lots of street Art…These are my friends, we know each other well, we rise and fall like the seasons, we are not here to stay, we are here to fade away.

Sweetness!
