Fine art photography gallery LUMAS is adding 20 newly discovered and emerging artists and 80 hand picked new editions to their portfolio.

These innovative and modern art pieces join the LUMAS portfolio of over 1,800 works by 200 established and emerging artists. All works are available for purchase online and in one of LUMAS' 40 galleries worldwide.

'Pink Panther Grid' by Nick Veasey

Among the new works is photography titled 'Pink Panther Grid' by Nick Veasey, from his series 'X-Ray Bags'. Internationally renowned for his satirical photographs using homemade x-ray technology, Veasey has turned his lens to women's bags, exploring the tension between elegant exteriors and their surprising and intimate cargo.

'Harmony' by Julian Wolkenstein

Another highlight is 'Pony Pin-Up' by Australian artist Julian Wolkenstein. As a commercial photographer, Wolkenstein takes great pride in the occasional personal project and with 'Pony Pin-Up' he aims to bring a smile to the viewer.

The three-photograph series features images of horses with elaborately styled manes and is inspired by very conscious self-promotional theme that chimes with a selfie-obsessed 21st century culture.

Further artists exploring the theme of animals include Claudio Gotsch and Signe Theill. In a nod to modernism and Magritte, Theill creates hyper-real, life-sized photographic cut-outs of sheep which are designed to be free-standing.

'Scharfsinn' by Claudio Gotsch

Meanwhile Claudio Gotsch astounds the viewer with his breath-taking close-ups of wildlife from the Engadin valley in Switzerland. Gotsch displays both an extraordinary level of patience and an instinctive understanding for the animals, setting his remarkable portraiture against a deep black background to show a bold and intimate side to each animal.

All are welcome to the opening night event on 23 June 2016 from 6.30pm until 8.30pm. It's FREE to attend - RSVP now by emailing and note the number of guests. The exhibition will then run until 7 July 2016.

LUMAS is open Mon-Wed 9:30am-5pm, Thu & Fri 9:30am-6pm and Sat & Sun 10am-5pm.
