Below is Slatan Dryke’s official biography:

“Photography… My Photography is not an Art Expression. It’s only a way to bust from myself… however, being closer to my Kernel”. – Slatan Dryke –

“The suspended moment intervenes during the action, and suddenly it blows up in a sharp lapse into yore”. – Slatan Dryke –

Slatan is Italian and he grew up surrounded by the best Art expression at 360°, and probably the best in the world.

Slatan loves Art in every form, but he is most fond of paintings and sculptures, following his classical education. Slatan is also a photographer in RL.

Always the traveler, Slatan loves to wander across the grid, finding new pockets of beauty for his pictures, thanks to the creativity and imagination of fellow residents.

Slatan is a perfectionist in taking his pictures, never missing a single detail. The ratio, the framing and light are quite an obsession, until finally the right image is in his viewfinder. Slatan rarely uses an editor to modify his pictures, so he likes to say his works are “natural”.

On the other hand, Slatan admits to have limited skills in building, so he creates his sculptures, not following a real scheme, but only indulging his instinct and his love for abstract forms, which are often slight but become alive with a creative use of textures, lights and movements. Slatan likes to use old-school SL building methods, with a preference for prims in their multiple aspects rather than mesh.

His buildings, sculptures and photographies have been exhibited in Art Galleries and at a number of main SL events:: University of Western Australia (UWA), BURN2’s, Santalarity, Burnal Equinox, Conception; SL Birthday, Raglan Shire’s ArtWalk, Art in the Park, Emphatic Eccentricia, Seaside Gallery, Oxford @rts Gallery. Pop-Up Art, Cape Able Art Gallery, VWBPE (Virtual Worlds Best Practice in Education), Ethnographia, Linden Endowment for the Arts (LEA), Kultivate Windlight Art Gallery, Holly Kay Art Park, Phoenix Artists Collaboration, Ani’s Gallery, La Maison d’Aneli, Argentum Artem, ArtCare Gallery, International Photography Festival, One Billion Rising, Relay for Life, Rock your Rack, Second Life Endowment for The Arts (SLEA), and many others including collaborations with artists in Second Life and Educational Institutions in Real Life as EduNation and Dublin Institute of Technology.

I love to put some scripting to my art and bright colors are my favorite Mexican make me think about the colorfulness i love artwork who is coming from Mexicans Indians. The colors is so bright and sometimes chocking for your eyes. It make me also think about Frida Carlo who make some wonderful paintings where she express her own pain. My art is a more happy happy style, but i also get my inspiration from real world.

About Michiel Bechir

I have started my long virtual journey into Second Life as a photographer in 2009.

First my main motivation was to share the richness of creations of all those different sims, with all their aspects. During
my trips I did meet a lot of people from all over the world. They learned me a lot of their backgrounds, passions and interests.

I have discovered the possiblities from all kinds of tools which helped me to improve my captures. By editing them I try to add a personal touch and feeling.
Experiments with the effect of colors are often done, and more recently I am trying to show the details by working with high resolution photos.

Kultivate is Seeking Artists!

Kultivate has 2 artist opportunities available! First Kultivate Select Gallery is seeking artists for our September 27 exhibition, as this is a themed gallery, the theme is animals.

I joined Second Life in 2007, and back then I never realized how much this would mean to me.
Back then I had just started painting with acrylics after a very long break where I raised my children and looked after my family and my work.

Today I have been painting several hundred paintings since then and I still get a lot of inspiration from nature, second Life and northern islands such as Faroe Islands and Iceland.

In SL I started taking photos already in 2008, and has developed my style ever since. All this brings me to where I am today and I hope you will enjoy my pictures.
