Rosana particularly emphasized one artist from Guatemala, Marisa Siebold, at the "Art Connects Women" event organized by Zeearts, led by cultural representative Zaahirah Zaben Muthy. She was impressed by how her paintings evoke human values such as empathy, peace, and culture. She felt that they had met before at different events, and was very interested in LABA, and this wonderful team that champions culture and promotes great values. Her art delves into an intuitive language to explore the birth of peace from the depths of our being. Through a visual narrative, she seeks to convey how small changes within ourselves can have a positive impact on others, thus creating a flow of harmony that spreads beyond our own internal borders.

Sculptor Rori Art

Rori Art (Rori Ianni), a sculptor from Italy, has been in contact with the LABA Biennial International Art Festival and hopes to conduct more interactive activities in the United States with the organizing committee. Jose Raul Scschneeberger, an artist from Chile, sent more than a dozen of his original oil paintings to the LABA organizing committee last year, hoping that the judges of the organizing committee would review his work.

Some of the American artists have personally brought their original paintings and even drove to LABA's Los Angeles headquarters for face-to-face communication with members of the organizing committee. Among them, artists Tm Gratkowski, Harley Cortez, and Lilli Muller. Tm Gratkowski is a contemporary artist who works with paper, Harley Cortez is a painter and visual artist, and Lilli Muller is a multi-disciplinary artist who also participated in the Venice Biennale.

Although artists from mainland China are far away from the United States, several artists overcame the difficulties of travel to come to Los Angeles in person to participate in various activities of the LABA Biennial International Art Festival. They include interior designer Wenkang Xue, and artists Zhejiang, Xiuwen Wang, and Jun Tan.

Artist Jie Geng

Mr. Jie Geng, a member of the French Art Association, signed up to participate in the LABA Biennial International Art Festival last year. Not only was he nominated for the LABA Icon Award last year, but he successfully painted a portrait at LABA's offline auction that was very successful and all proceeds were donated to the LABA Disabled Artists Foundation. On February 16, this year, Mr. Jie Geng was successfully elected to be the LABA Biennial International Art Festival Overseas Art Envoy by the LABA Biennial International Art Festival Organizing Committee. Currently, Mr. Jie Geng is actively preparing for a personal art exhibition in Germany. We are also organizing mainland artists who have participated in the competition to form an academic study tour to the United States.

Some representatives of mainland artists who participated in the 2nd Biennial LABA International Art Festival with Mr. Jie Geng include: Ms. Chun Liu, Mr. Xiaoyin Tan, Ms. Xiuwen Wang, Mr. Shanhe Wan, Ms. Yufen Li, Mr. Jeff Zhang, Ms. Xiaoli Chen, Mr.Gengmin Li, and Ms. Yun Wang.
