A work of art is so much more than what they appear at first glance. It is a gateway into the artist's life, emotions, inspirations and personal experiences. The aesthetics of an artwork may be the first thing that draws the viewer in but the story behind it is often why people fall in love with a particular piece.
'Portal' is an augmented reality exhibition of dazzling art and the fascinating hidden tales behind them.
All the artworks will have audio-visual content that the visitors will be able to explore simply by pointing their camera at them. Transforming the art space into an engaging, interactive and surprising experience.

As a fine art photographer I am passionate about working with nature and exploring ways to capture its essence, energy and spirit.
In my work I am searching for the vibration of life itself and its luminosity through unique abstract constellations infused with inspiration and mystery.
Becky & Pybus
I am a UK based artist whose work has been exhibited in galleries and museums in the UK and Europe.
This work is from my latest series of paintings and challenges the viewer to think and to question.
I work in paint, fabric collage, metal and glass.
Jennifer's creative process is intuitive and automatic in nature, which allows an airy freedom of form, texture and colour to develop and merge with her technique.
Her work aims to bring together the imperceptible, the material and the ephemeral. Jennifer's practice is influenced by intuitive art, alchemy and psychology.
I am a multimedia artist and independent curator.
My "Light Painting" photographs are created exclusively with long exposures, without Photoshop, using stencils and light tools that I build myself.
I was featured on the BBC, TimeOut London and Londonist, and participated in exhibitions in London, Edinburgh, Arles, Prague and Brazil.
My work is about exploring my identity - looking inwards to what is hidden - exploring juxtapositions between methodologies imposing rules and those freed from rational control.
Not fixed to one theme/genre - my work is a journey of exploration - looking for unexpected connections and meaning through making.
Ingrid Mabelle aka Mabelle Collage is a self-taught artist.
She has been experimenting with creative possibilities, with a special interest in photography and the moving image.
She uses collage as the main procedure for composition, creating a narrative through the overlap of spaces and times, the past of our history and the presente.
I am a child of peoples who have fought for freedom and my art explores the interplay between physical and spiritual freedom and bondage.
Both grounded and transcendent, it explores identities, culture and societal constructs.
My work is both visceral and guttural. I present a discourse on human values.
I have always lived with art, communication and creation.
As a teenager, in the 60s, I was able to use a professional camera at work, but I only managed to buy an old Asahi Pentax Spotmatic in the 70s. Since then, I was able to record what I saw in photos.
Currently, for convenience, I use my mobile phone.
Roberto Rafael Navarrete
Shamanism, Peruvian Heritage, and Sexual Identity drive my research which enabled me to create a bridge into the physical and emotional scarring from intolerance.
As a queer Latinx artist of color, I feel an enormous responsibility to utilize my talent while refusing to keep any part of my identity closeted.
I am an illustrator, designer, collage-artist, and writer from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
I use a combination of mediums at my disposal to further communicate my creative vision and to ultimately connect to the root of what I feel is connected to a larger collective consciousness.
