Mamatjan Juma is an artist who was trained in the style of Socialist Realism, in which ideology was paramount. He began questioning this notion and exploring more abstract styles after his move to the United States. Through "snapshots" of his paintings, he shows the development of his style, where beauty, balance, and limitlessness are expressed without the need to stand for an ideology.

The Art of Abstract Comics
BY KYM TABULO
@ VOL 18
ON AUG 24, 2016
Kym Tabulo works in the field of abstract comics. This is an emerging 21st century genre that combines the conventions of traditional comics with abstract painting. Kym creates works on canvas and paper using a range of formats, scales, techniques and media. Her pioneering work experiments with the idea that dynamic, organic movement and growth can be conveyed in a single image or a sequence of images, to create a sense of movement that also suggests the passage of time. Her process is a combination of intuitive and planned art making. The intention of her work is to generate a visual rhythm rather than tell a story, however others may wish to invent their own story or find a theme.
