INETA GREIŽA
Ineta Greiža combines clay and metal. She cannot resist using things that still can be recycled and still are beautiful, for example, nails and wires.
“Metal successfully interacts with clay, same as ceramics with glass. My colleagues know this weakness of mine, therefore they always bring unusual glass bottles or old iron objects”, she explains. Small size art works can be seen as a special accent, which perfectly fit in the interior. In the experiments with chemicals are produced different colours, which are being burned in the chamotte plates – this is the process of creating ceramic paintings .In a similar manner are produced ceramic tiles, which are used for creating extraordinary interiors by covering walls with them.

JEKATERINA GRAZJEVA
Jekaterina Grjazeva is a very fine artist. In a sensitive and delicate manner she is introducing the audience into her world that is far more poetic and humanistic than reality, but is bond with it by unnoticeable links. In her passions she is closer to the “world of art” emerged on the “tips of sharp pens of the artists and poets”. Jekaterina Grjazeva's handwriting is composed of elegant symbolism (up to surreal manifests) and refinement of modern lines. If often seems that the drawing of her etchings is following a predefined pattern. The artist is attracted to miniature form – “the size of a heard, the shape of a palm”, which color scheme is extremely reserved. Much brighter are her drawings on colored paper. But here again one sees her need for restoration of artistically romantic environment.

His interest in "the art of depiction" has evolved graduallv, but took on a more urgent character in the late ‘80ies. In its own way Indulis Kalniņš’ art is of a rational nature. Exploring both the world and the well-known figures and popular artifices of Latvian painting, he has, as a designer, developed a new, but at the same time universally recognizable artistic world. He creates a painting, a substance that with its pragmatic character reveals an artistic inclination towards coherence and rhythm as well as decorative expression.
