Eye catching, colorful, bold, fantastic, surreal and at most times psychedelic is how many describe Oliver Hibert’s style of artwork and Paintings. Hibert’s iconic style almost transcends time as it nods to the past, while being so contemporized that it speaks to the future.

Hibert’s particular and unique style of fine art has caught the attention of numerous publications, retail stores, galleries and museums from around the globe. Hibert also prides himself as an illustrator / designer and has worked with many top-notch and commercial clients ranging from Nike to The Flaming Lips. Hibert’s vivid and colorific designs can be recognized on album covers, rock posters, music videos, skateboards, magazine covers, editorials, shoes, clothing, and vinyl toys. Most recently, Hibert has designed a full tarot deck and Magical Oracle Board.

At a time where online exhibitions are becoming more commonplace, WOW x WOW feels that it’s important to show solidarity with brick and mortar galleries, and highlight the fact that the physical and the virtual can work together in harmony, mutually engaging audiences and supporting the arts. Both gallery models have the ability to co-exist and provide varying benefits to both the artists they work with and the collectors they provide for, making for stronger international networks and a blossoming New Contemporary community.

Davor Gromilovic is a visual artist currently residing in Sombor, Serbia (born in Yugoslavia, 1985). Although contemporary drawing represents the primary field of his creative exploration and development, he also shows creative abilities and genuine commitment to other artistic forms such as painting, illustration, graphics, murals, art fanzines, etc. His work is narrative and often inspired by fantastic motives of fairy tales, folk-art, pop surrealism, sci-fi, and even by north renaissance masters of painting, as well as by his personal experiences and inner world. In his work one notices a dominant use of symbols, his inner world and complex reflections from which he develops ideas and specific intimate aesthetics. Complex, but at the same time purified, strongly imaginative but well-thought-out works adorn this artist’s rich oeuvre.
Paolo Del Toro is a British-born artist currently residing in the US. Originally trained as an illustrator, he began teaching himself sculpture and woodcarving in 2011. His journey in sculpture began whilst whittling a mermaid under a tree in the Pyrenees mountains. The process of turning a twig into a mermaid struck him as a magical one, and he has been hooked on sculpture ever since. His first project was a series of wooden boxes in the shape of heads, which allowed him to practice sculpture while traveling. Directly influenced by his nomadic lifestyle, the boxes are small, lightweight, and hollow. After settling in the US three years ago, Paolo was able to start making larger sculptures and began to experiment with felt. His current pieces are made of foam and needle felted wool.
