Grace Rebullida (California, USA) – TAE Official Blogger
Grace Rebullida has been drawing, painting and photographing since a very young age. She studied Fine Arts at the University of the Philippines and came to Oakland, California, to study at California College of Arts and Crafts (now CCA). Later on, tantalized by what you can do with computers, she attended San Francisco State Multimedia Studies program, where she learned to use digital artist tools. She now paints with oil and acrylics on canvas or wood. She also draws whimsical topics on paper with oil or acrylic pens in between the more complicated pieces.
She continues to photograph with a DSLR and an iPhone and creates digital artwork — this is the primary focus today and moving forward. She has recently joined a movement called Techspressionism; an artistic approach in which technology is utilized as a means to express emotional experience. A core group of artists have begun working together to develop momentum for this broader terminology instead of "digital art."

Adam Brant (Bedfordshire, UK) – TAE Official Blogger
Adam Brant is a UK-based visual artist specializing in painting and drawing. He graduated with a Fine Arts degree from the University of Hull, Scarborough Campus in 2002 (and says that studying by the seaside was as fun as it sounds!). Adam has continued to create and exhibit work since he graduated, fitting time in the art studio around office-based jobs. He currently lives and works in Bedfordshire, UK.
During his studies, Adam was lucky enough to spend a month at the Cyprus College of Art as part of a student exchange programme. He credits the inspiration he found from observing ways the modern world impacted the ancient history of the island as helping him to establish his identity as an artist.
Adam’s work is influenced by the tradition of still life painting, but he uses both objects and environments as sources of inspiration. His work explores the tension that exists in the relationship between the past, present, and future, and how our memories affect our response to this. Adam creates his work by building layers of marks, images, and color, often combining painted and drawn marks within each layer. This results in semi-abstract artworks which are often bold in color, combining expressive marks with fine detail. Through his work, Adam hopes to encourage the importance of reflection in our fast-paced society.
Adam has taken part in all of the TAE’s and is excited to have an opportunity to extend his support by helping to share news about the exhibition to inspire others.
