Jerzy Wladyslaw Puciata (1933–2014) — Polish painter
“Light is life. Light is God. (…) Light tears up darkness and gives hope. (…) light is the pursuit of deeper knowledge, perfection. It is an expression of my hope that I want to share. It is also the joy of life — the light of colors. These are memories of the moments I experienced, colors, words, all nature. The atmosphere of specific places.

Critic Marta Traba identified a series of characteristic elements in Obregon’s work: personal poetic values; self-sufficiency in regard to reality, indeed starting from it; expressive intention; freedom of form; search for identity based on the landscape, zoology, and flora; elliptic space people by magic elements; and contempt for urban culture.Also unique to Obregon is that instead of faithfully painting what he sees, he made extensive use of his personal imagination and vitality.From his still lifes of the 1950s to his landscapes of the sky, the sea and the buildings of Cartagena de Indias, where he worked until his death, Obregón’s work is multifaceted. He conveys his feeling for the geography and wildlife of Colombia, his love of family and his passion for women.

Hans Rudolf “Ruedi” Giger ( 1940–2014) was a Swiss surrealist painter, whose style was adapted for many forms of media, including record-albums, furniture and tattoo-art…“Some people say my work is often depressing and pessimistic, with the emphasis on death, blood, overcrowding, strange beings and so on, but I don’t really think it is,” he once said. Born Hans Ruedi Giger on February 5, 1940 in Chur, Switzerland, he went on to study architecture and industrial design at the School of Applied Arts in Zürich. His first successful attempt at reaching audiences with visual art came in 1969, when a painting of his was published as a poster. Giger cited Ernst Fuchs and Salvador Dalí as major influences on his stylizations of bodies and machinery.
