Morgan Fisher – Brushless series

Upon leaving high school, Morgan immediately began an active and ongoing international life as a musician. Artists Morgan has played keyboards with include The Love Affair (#1 hit in 1968), Mott the Hoople (produced by David Bowie), Yoko Ono, Queen, and members of R.E.M and Y.M.O. These days he may be called upon to compose stylish TV and film music, create meditation music in a Zen temple, or jam with classic rock and blues bands. Morgan has even played samba in Brazil and world music in China.

All his life Morgan has pursued photography as an art, as well as documenting his musical life using still and movie cameras. Since moving to Japan in 1985 he has specialised in and refined his own style of abstract photography, a kind of visual music, or “light painting” involving spontaneous, free movement of the camera and/or the light source. He utilises the finest digital equipment to create his images, which display a depth and subtlety more akin to painting than photography.

Equally close to his creative heart are his solo live performances, improvised on a variety of rare vintage and modern keyboards while projecting his light paintings; they are a true synthesis of sound+light – unpredictable, uplifting, and inspiring.

Sannib – British digital artist

Hazem Sannib is a British digital artist of Syrian-Lebanese descent who is currently living in London, who expresses his vision through vibrant and thought-provoking paintings. He first started painting when he was just nine years old. As his technique improved,
he began his first experiments of painting in oils at the age of seventeen under the tuition of Farid Georges. in Homs, Syria, and soon after was chosen to exhibit his work as part of
an exhibition in Syria & Kuwait.

In 2006, he started experimenting with abstract themes and painting in acrylics under the guidance of a teacher in Norway, Mard Issa.
This period would be extremely important for Sannib, who was beginning to explore humanitarian themes through his work and develop what would later become his signature style.

In 2015 Sannib started developing his new approach of mixing modern art with classical Arabic Calligraphy by marrying two eras : the old classic and the latest digital one. Sannib used his rich Graphic Design experience to create a unique mixture of classic and modern Arabic calligraphy art. By exploring digital art methods he achieves unprecedented creative artworks. He is showing the richness of the Arabic letters and culture by blending these letters with vibrant colours, contemporary shape and artistic style. He transfers his unique artistic creations onto various surfaces such as canvas, wood and carpets.
