Pattern and sculpture are taken to a new spatial level, providing environments with an unexpected wow-factor. This collection highlights our curator’s picks for must-see dimensional artists, plus selections recently created by the FBFA Studio Design team.

Christin Gilbert is a photographer whose work knows no boundaries. Based in Vancouver, Christin is an exemplar of the place FBFA calls home: she is equally comfortable pounding the pavement of the city or blazing trails on the local mountains, relaxing on the beach or laying tracks in the snow. She has a keen eye for capturing quiet corners of busy cities, making every new place seem like home.

Collaborating with FBFA since 2009, Christin’s submissions always inspire us. Her portfolio reflects the many locales she has visited, taking us around the world. Christin’s work appeals to the wanderer in each of us, inviting us along to enjoy the view.

Marta Baricsa began collaborating with Farmboy Fine Arts in early 2015, providing a striking collection of works available for exclusive licensing. Marta’s paintings have a beautiful, calligraphic quality to them and rapidly became some of the most popular pieces amongst our clientele. It’s easy see why: Marta’s gestural paintings have been exhibited in galleries across Canada and the U.S. to great reviews, and have found permanent homes in both private and corporate collections.

Originally from the UK, Marta moved to Canada at a young age and eventually made Vancouver her home. With a thriving film industry, Vancouver became the perfect spot for Marta; her pieces prove to be just as popular with movie and TV productions, and have been prominently featured on film. Marta’s incredible studio space, which she invited FBFA to visit, allows her to work at a large scale. She has also visited the FBFA studio to see how our in-house design team work with and propose her compelling pieces.

“What interests me most is neither still life nor landscape: it is the human figure” – Henri Matisse. Body and form were central to Matisse’s work, as they are to this collection. From traditional charcoal studies to contemporary metal sculpture, examine and appreciate the classical beauty of the figure.

In the spirit of farming, Eric E. Anderson describes himself as ‘corn-fed’. Originally a Midwesterner, Eric was born and raised in the suburbs of Kansas City, Missouri. After time spent canvassing the Arizona desert and beaches of California, he settled in Brooklyn, New York and began collaborating with FBFA in 2008.

Always with his camera, Eric doesn’t miss a moment on the streets of NYC. From architecture and street scenes to candid portraits of fashionable and city-worn New Yorkers, nobody escapes Eric’s gaze. His photography has a spacious and breathable quality, as though he might be subtly recreating the vast, pastoral landscapes of his childhood state or time in the desert. There is chaos and clutter, but there is also structure and expanse. Mark Twain once said “Make your mark in New York and you are a made man”; our team thinks Eric has done just that.
