  • Steve Baylis (requested 2017.09.18) is a painter and graphic designer from Vancouver,Canada. Steve Baylis was born in Vancouver BC in 1980.

He had also created a public art commission for the City of Port Coquitlam. [349][350] About his Art: artist Steve Baylis combines a range of unique influences with his own driven spiritual inquiry. In Baylis’ oil paintings, he is not representing known objects or figures, but speaking directly through the paint. He seeks to reflect energy itself, from its micro form to the level of the universe. His compositions can be divided into clusters even while they work as organic wholes. Elements like colour, tone, and form speak their own language, both directly and in interaction with each other. In Incarceration of Comprehension for instance, we see his use of vibrant neon yellow points beam out from beneath deep saturated blues. The viewer could be looking at extreme close-ups of nature, particle clusters, details of an inner landscape, or simply forms of paint, pigment, and brushstroke themselves. His sensitivity to his materials having their own voice honours the same qualities in Mark Rothko’s later “multiform” paintings, as well as colour field painters like Barnett Newman – both of whom have been great influencers of Baylis’ oeuvre.

  • George Tatakis (Γιώργος Τατάκης - Born in Athens, Greece October 6, 1981). Best known for his black-and-white work, inspired by the traditions in Greece. His professional photographic career started in 2015, when he quit his profession as an electrical engineer and started traveling across Greece. He was photographing snapshots during local peculiar customary events in Greece. This work formed the first project 'Ethos', which was presented in his exhibition at the Benaki Museum in downtown Athens. This work later moved to the Fragonard Museum in Grasse, Cannes, this time focusing in photographs portraying women wearing local traditional attires. One of his photographs represented Greece at the exhibition 'Another Europe' in London. It is there where he visited an exhibition by Alex Prager and he started thinking differently about directed and posed photography. These two events made him start his next project 'Caryatis'. A study of local traditional women's costumes across Greece. The main artistic difference from 'Ethos' was that Tatakis now directed the images and posed the models. This work gained recognition and received tens of international awards, including the second place in portraits at the Sony World Photography Awards.

Detectives and police[edit]


In Ireland it was different. Following the verdict of Lennon, the ships in Irish ports choose to remain. Peter Kolts, a crewman of Pirer, another Estonian ship at Dublin south quays, hoisted the hammer and sickle and prevented Captain Joseph Juriska from removing it. The Garda Síochána were called. Following a court appearance before Lennon the sailor spent a week in jail.[114] Forde, Frank (1981). The Long Watch. Dublin: New Island Books (published 2000). ISBN 1-902602-42-0. I reckon that Lennon should have an article. There was much more to his life. He was involved in the war of independence. During the 1916 rising he was with Éamon de Valera in Bolands Éamon de Valera. There is a wealth of material in the recently released by the National Library: https://catalogue.nli.ie/Record/vtls000822996. He wrote an attack on James Joyce published in America which so upset Joyce that he never returned to Ireland. It focused on his treatment of Nora Barnacle. In a letter to Constantine Curran, Joyce wrote that, to him, the map of Ireland was marked "Hic Sunt Lennones". He was jailed in England. He was appointed District Court Judge in 1920. In 1958 he dismissed charges against two IRA members. Oscar Traynor, the minister of justice gave him a week to resign or be impeached. Tim Pat Coogan in his book The IRA described this as "stern treatment of an eccentric but humane judge".[115] His pension was £5 a week, even for the time – rather small.
