KRISZTINA KISS  initially starting as a violinist at the age of nine in Hungary, after years of experience in many orchestras and ensembles Krisztina changed to become a violist. While working with the Debrecen Symphony Orchestra she gained her Masters in music performance. After 2 years touring with the orchestra she was promoted to the post of principal viola, and went on to play viola d’amore solo with the orchestra in many festivals, theatres and concerts including Budapest’s Spring Festival and live on Romanian National Radio. After relocating to London she specialised in performing with bands live, and as a session musician for studio recordings. During 2015 Krisztina has enjoyed performing with many notable ensembles, such as the Covent Garden Musicians.

Mira Satryan and her paintings
Mira Satryan and her paintings

MIRA SATRYAN   My painting is a message evolving around emotions, eternal to some degree, primary, one could say… It is the fascination, the ability to perceive and experience beauty, a union of most intimate experiences and emotions, the fascination with nature as well as with a relative relationship with another human being. I express in my painting the concerns and risks that result from a fleeting structure of circumstances defining our everyday lives. Painting is the realm of communicating expression and emotionality that are a common theme of sorts in my paintings – the awareness of impermanence. Sometimes my painting has a dramatic form, emphasized with a contrast color of varying intensity of the hue. The structure of our existence is very fleeting and frail; it takes an effort to cultivate it… Our experiences are ephemeral and transitory… and everything passes irrevocably.
