Etienne Roudaut. Paris, France


Everything that Etienne Roudaut stumbles upon is a photographic opportunity. Whether traveling down the Seine or soaring above Scotland, Etienne is on a constant search for good lighting and breath-taking views. By turning his life into an epic quest for beauty, Etienne creates art that resonates with the adventurer inside.

Michael Soltis. Delta, Canada.


According to Michael Soltis art is the “freedom to change.” His blend of typography, color, and composition transforms abstract painting into something more than just paint. He traverses the line between design and art by paralleling traditional art techniques with a savvy design sense. Letters and numbers are chosen not for their inherent meaning but for their shape and aesthetic and how they interplay to create the composition.
