Rayel (Belgium) - 'Signs from Nature'

Photo-Art

Rayel uses the natural world to create strong symbolic visuals (manipulated or not) that makes you look different at that world of stillness and metaphors. The tools he creates with are digital - camera, computer and brushes. He brings the knowledge and techniques he learned in his life as a graphic-designer to this work - and the results are framed archival quality prints in different formats. Rayel, as a graphic designer, had his own studio for communication design.

'Goa - Chaos, Farbe und Licht'



by John David


John David was born in Wales and grew up in England where he studied engineering and architecture. His life has lead him to live in Japan, India, USA, Australia and finally Germany, where he is now.

He is a lover of India and spent many years living there. Besides photography, painting is a reflection of his inner Self. His creativity has its source in the spontaneity and innocence of the moment.

THE CLASH OF THE OLD CATHOLIC EX-PORTUGUESE COLONIAL CULTURE AND THE EMERGING MODERN COSMOPOLITAN HINDI CULTURE WITH A DASH OF GLOBAL VILLAGE AND THE REMNANTS OF THE SIXTIES HIPPY TRAIL COMBINE TO GIVE GOA, A SMALL STATE ON THE SEASHORE OF WESTERN INDIA, A VIBRANT, COLOURFUL, CHAOTIC ATMOSPHERE. THE VASTNESS OF THE SKY AND THE POWER OF THE SUN'S RAYS DRIVE THE ECONOMY.

THESE PHOTOGRAPHS CAPTURE THE VIBRANCY, COLOUR AND EXOTIC NATURE OF THE CULTURE AND THE POWER OF THE NATURAL LIGHT, WHICH DIFFUSES THROUGH THE CHAOTIC JUNGLESCAPE AND PAINTS VAST PANORAMIC SKYSCAPES.
