Ida Mitrani

Ida Mitrani is a French/Turkish artist living in Dublin. She holds a diploma in Animation, History of European painting and a BA in Fine art. She's currently teaching Botanical Illustration in DLIADT.

She is interested in creating unusual shapes and patterns by juxtaposing or superimposing flowing, straight or erratic lines. Working meticulously and repeatedly on the same drawing allow the artist to investigate aspects of what is unseen by the naked eye.

Recent exhibitions include a solo show in NAG and group show in the Cross gallery, Monster Truck, Temple Bar Gallery and Studios and Oonagh young Gallery in Dublin.

Diana Caramaschi

Originally from Italy Diana Caramaschi has been exhibiting and practicing as a visual artist in Ireland since 2002. Diana received her BA Fine Art from NCAD in 2002 and her MA in Visual Art Practices from DunLaoghaire IADT in 2007.

Her practice is based on a multimedia approach where the subject of study dictates the medium, a process of ongoing research and learning. For the last few years she had made work that explores a theory of ' The Third Language' that proposes a simultaneous experience of two concepts or two mediums in order to explore a state of 'in-betweeness' both unconscious and conscious. Diana currently lives and works in Ireland.
