 Patrick J. Maguire - London, United Kingdom

His story has been featured in the Oscar Winning Movie "In The Name of the Father" and he is the author of the top selling book "My Father's watch - The Story of a Child Prisoner in 70's Britain". Patrick, one of the infamous "Maguire Seven" was wrongly imprisoned in 1976 and later declared innocent in 1991. Mr. Maguire, jailed at the young age of 14, had the color ripped away from his life and while he was pressured to make a coerced confession. stood his ground with "I can't sign". 
The inspiration for his art comes from many directions - at times listening to classical music - he links his strokes of pen to paper to times of trauma and the memory of a childhood that was colorful and carefree. Now, as truly "One Out From the Darkness" his art, at times haunting, yet bold and concise symbolizes his emotions and hopes.
In 2016, Patrick traveled to Tianjin, China to sponsor and support the EWA "Building Bridges-Building People" Art Therapy Support for Autism Project. His support and contribution to this worthy cause is greatly appreciated. 
As Mr. Maguire's sole art representative for global online sales, East West Artisans has a wide range of his Originals and Certified Limited Editions available.

 Aidong Feng - Double Mouth Village, China

Born in the late 50's in Double Mouth Village, 100 kilometers east of Beijing, this highly acclaimed artist was first inspired by his father's paintings of patriotic scenes depicting the passions of the revolution in China.
Internationally known for his "Peasant Paintings", Feng's artworks are filled with color, amazing detail and a sense of humor in praise of his motherland, life in the rural village, harmony and honest prosperity.
At the age of 18, Feng placed 1st among 35,000 entrants in his first District Art Competition. Now displayed in the Art Museum of China, the China Folk Art Museum and featured in numerous national documentaries and major art publications, Feng's artworks have placed in the Top 3 on several occasions for National Awards over the past ten years.
Given the inspiration and encouragement by his high school teacher to achieve his artistic dreams, Feng takes time from his daily painting to instruct elementary students in Double Mouth Village so they too can pursue their artistic creativity.
At East West Artisans we are honored to be the Only Globally Authorized online platform to offer his current release of original artworks and Certified Limited Editions.
