Sgt Pepper Album Cover Art

by Michael Faris What makes a good album cover? It’s a weird format, being square, which can be circumvented by a clever artist (by using background tricks to “reformat” it into a rectangle). It should somehow be visually related to the band and the music. It should somehow reflect the zeitgeist of the times or …

Alex Johnmeyer I always knew I wanted to be an artist. However, finding my own style? Well, that took a little while longer. If one is to be considered a “professional” artist, most gallery owners and customers like to see a cohesive vision, a unifying note that ties all the work together. I have never …
Eternity by Kavitha Saminathan

The one thing that modern art gives us, such as that by Kavitha Saminathan,  is canvasses of pure delight. No longer is it necessary for viewers of art to be well informed of the story behind a painting or the absolute context of a visual work. Because of the way art has grown since the …

To see a painting by visual artist, Michelle Larsen, is an encounter with the extraordinary a painter performs upon a canvas. Most painters paint life scenes in two dimension using oil or acrylic paints. Even in abstract works of art using mixed media we don’t see this kind of application. Looking at an image does …
A momma and son scribble portrait by Michael Volpicelli

20-09-2016

“A picture paints a thousand words” except for artist Michael Volpicelli, in which case, a thousand words paints a picture, and then some. He is a gifted portrait artist, but in his art, the words Volpicelli uses like other artists use colour, are intimately connected with his subject, so they speak just as much about the subject as …
Shiira by Evie Zimmer
by
08-09-2016

A new artwork by U. S. artist, Evie Zimmer, called “Shiira” is a marriage of two styles of art that have no business sharing a canvas: Abstraction and Realism. It is a feat that only an artist of Zimmer’s skill could hope to achieve. She has combined oil and water to make them behave like peanut butter and …

The work of German artist, Astrid Stöppel, is referred to as “minimalism”—art that makes its statement in the briefest of terms, makes it clear and concise, and leaves the viewer stupefied with the lingering question, “Did I understand that or am I missing something?” It’s really no small wonder that one would regard her art this way. The answer …

It’s fair to declare Brandon Scott a portrait artist, because, clearly, portraits are his specialty. It would never be fair to say that he is “just” a portrait artist, however. The word “just” diminishes the quality and importance of the art of portraits, and it assumes that Scott possesses no other potential to his skill as an artist. …
