of introducing a larger variety of works by our artists
throughout the year. A fully illustrated digital catalogue
of all works on exhibit can be viewed on our website.
ANTONIO CAZORLA
Antonio Cazorla was born in Punta Umbria in 1971. From an
early age he showed an exceptional interest and aptitude for art.
In 1989, Cazorla began studying at the Faculty of Fine Arts in
Seville. The experience of this city, a place rich in both art and
history, was a decisive moment in his life and career. Cazorla

capturing the beauty and sensuality of the female form.

IAIN FAULKNER
Iain Faulkner was born in Glasgow. Since graduating from
Glasgow School of Art in 1996 with a BA in Fine Art, he has
established himself as a skilled draughtsman with the integrity

MALCOLM LIEPKE
Malcolm Liepke was born in 1953 and raised in
Minneapolis. As a student he hungered for
‘classical’ training rather than the ‘conceptual’
ideas being taught. In a bold move, he left the Art
Center College in Los Angeles and went to New
York. That Malcolm Liepke’s paintings are arrestingly
beautiful is evident, but they are much more. Through
pattern, colour and bravura brushwork, Liepke delves
deeply into profound areas of human nature. He
has exhibited extensively internationally enjoying
phenomenal success with a string of sell out
exhibitions.

PHILIP MUNOZ
Munoz’s work is concerned with the notion of glamour and
its role in social identity. He is particularly interested in the
idea of beauty through transformation and the concept of the
contemporary sublime. Digital photography is an essential tool
in his work. It creates an emotional platform to connect with the

JAMIL NAQSH
Jamil Naqsh was born in Kairana, Uttar Pradesh in
1938. In a still rapidly expanding art world, Jamil
Naqsh holds a key position. He is the best-known
contemporary artist from Pakistan, long famous
in his own country, and also well established in
PU[LYUH[PVUHS H\J[PVUZ /PZ ^VYR YLÅLJ[Z UV[ Q\Z[
the culture of Pakistan, but also that of the whole
of the Indian subcontinent, both Muslim and nonMuslim. In particular, there are many echoes of the
imperial Mughal regime that once ruled the
whole of India. At the same time, the exhibition

this background, has been able to enter into a fruitful
relationship with western Modernism, and thus link
himself to what is now a worldwide community of
visual artists.

JUAN BAUTISTA NIETO
Juan Bautista Nieto was born in Seville in 1963. Following his
studies to be a doctor, which in later years would prove a

the human anatomy, Nieto gave up medicine in favour of his
secret passion for painting. His work presents an exaggerated
obsession with recreating a reality, which reaches beyond the
precise representation of a photograph. He transcends the theme
and concept of hyperrealism using it as a vehicle to take us
onto another level wherein he achieves an extraordinary kind of
intensity, which paradoxically creates a distinct feeling of unreality.

as one of the foremost exponents of hyperrealism in Spain today.
