"I was born in Cherepovets, Russia and spent my childhood growing up in Ukraine before my mother and I immigrated to the United States when I was 6 years old. I fell in love with art before I could form complete sentences and discovered my passion for oils about five years ago. I enjoy sharing videos of my art and creative process on my youtube channel which currently has over 85,000 subscribers. The center of my work changes along with my fascinations and life, though I have always been deeply inspired by natural elements and the female form. I'm constantly learning and doing my best to grow. I learn best by experimentation, which is what makes painting so exciting for me, just allowing the brush and paint take you somewhere interesting and ending up somewhere new and unexpected. I always feel connected to my work." ~ Lena Danya
‘A great deal of my creative energy is focused on developing a visual language that uses elements of both realism and abstraction to describe a subject. ‘Our Ghosts Are Hungry, How About You?’ is a series of narrative paintings on childhood. Visually, these images explore the dissonance that arises when realism is paired with the abbreviation and exaggeration of form.’ - Matthew Robertson
Matthew Robertson was born and raised in San Francisco and graduated from the Academy of Art University in 2012 with a BFA in illustration. He currently lives and works in Berkeley, California. Robertson’s technical oil paintings are simultaneously chaotic and controlled as he masterfully weaves the two components into one canvas to intuitively explore the tenuous balance between real and abstract forms. The new series vibrates with a sense of innocence described by bold colors, geometric forms, and spontaneous lines which merge together harmoniously with an expert sense of realism, to create a body of work that is both nostalgic and contemporary.
Modern Eden Gallery is pleased to present UNIVERSE: The Art of Existence, a multi-artist exhibition curated and conceived by Warholian’s founder, Michael Cuffe.
This exhibit brings together artists from San Francisco and beyond on the subject of space, the cosmos, galaxies, celestial bodies, planets, stars, and more. Also explored is the larger outer paradigm of the Universe that relates to things of an atomic scale, such as elements of quantum physics, atoms, and energy streams. Each artist has been encouraged to interpret the Universe itself as either an outer or inner world
David Natale was born in Maryland, where he spent his early years fostering his creative side. In 2008 he came to Los Angeles where he currently lives and works. Since then David has been involved in shows both nationally and internationally. With no formal art training, he spends a majority of his time working to improve his craft and narrative.
David's paintings portray the intricate and subtle interactions between humans and the natural world. The nebulous landscape of the cosmos provides a fertile backdrop for a lush imagination rooted in the fantastic and the familiar. A place where flora and fauna mingle in surreal landscapes of pastel colors. His work explores the beauty in the vastness of what we have yet to understand.
