Name: Lisa Iris
About: A passion for art history and mythology pervades the art of Lisa Iris, a realm encompassing the contemporary and eternal, the sensual and spiritual. Drenched in gem-like colour and embellished with sumptuous detail, the goddesses and warriors who dwell in her paintings beckon with a seductive beauty.
Love and art will triumph if we use our lives to create peace; happiness for ourselves and others. This is now the hope for my life. I paint sublime beings to portray the profoundly human, our quest for compassion, wisdom and courage - Lisa Iris.
Name: Baba Studio
About: Baba Studio was founded in 2002 by Russian/Irish partnership Alex Ukolov and Karen Mahony. Alex was originally trained in the Ukraine as an illustrator and designer. Karen did her post-graduate training at the Royal College of Art in London, specialising in interactive media. They now run the studio from the centre of the old part of Prague, where they're surrounded by incredible art and architecture - and by their own three amazing cats (they insisted on a mention). The studio is well-known for extravagant, "Moderne Baroque" visuals with a distinct twist of both humour and the bizarre. Baba Studio's tarot decks have three times been voted the "Deck of the Year" and you can see many of the card images in use now on Baba's unique range of textiles and bags.
