At the age of 18 he entered as an accountant in a company of wedding favors in Florence to meet the needs of the family.

My name is Carla Frank, I am 74 years old and I am Dutch. The inspiration to paint has always been there. With a family and full-time job, after my retirement in 2011, I was able to start on this passion and I started taking lessons. Although I am self-taught, the lessons have helped me get to where I am today. I still follow the lessons.
My name is Natia Dolidze. I was born and grown up in Tbilisi, the capital of Georgia. During my school time, I liked performing in theatre, painting and modeling with wax. I have some personal exhibitions at school. In 2006 I moved to Munich in Germany, where I lived with my husband and our child, before we moved in 2011 to The Hague in the Netherlands. 5 years ago i started intensive work. I am preparing for Grandiose’s exhibition. The last 2 years, I paint intensively, extra orders, but in the coming time I’m planning a lot more. In a few countries to get excited about my personal exhibitions and larger ones. I also have a lot of invitations from various galleries. My effort and devoted my free time in painting and modeling, in order to be able to present my work in an arts exhibition. I paint with oil and acrylic and form figures with model clay. I also discovered the excitement, challenge and peculiarity of painting on acrylic glass, without knowing the final result.

Marc Dequidt alias Dekit Painter, started painting in oils from the age of 7. Lived his childhood in Tahiti. Back in France he set up a graphic art studio, and then a printing press. Then devoted 20 years to the creation and restoration of stained-glass windows in Europe, and the Maghreb. All his professional activities have always been based on the image. His creations are the synthesis of different cultures, and know-how often tinged with a note of humor or eroticism.
Studied at St. Martin’s School of Art, London. Having concentrated on abstract installation work, I have now returned to figurative work.
Born in Germany, Helgard Wertel studied history of art and philosophy at the University of Heidelberg. She lived and worked in different countries as a dance performer, a photographer and a visual artist. And the way goes on.
