  1. Yana Movchan, 1971 | Magic Realism painter

    Yana Movchan, 1971 | Magic Realism painter Ukrainian-born Canadian painter* Yanina (Yana) Movchan was born in Kiev. Yana’s sublime mastery of the technique and structure of Renaissance painting* combines with the instinctive symbolism* of "magical realism" to create a personal neo-realist idiom. Her work is formal, yet playful; contemporary, yet timeless; and joyous, yet mysterious, evocative and dreamlike. In Yana’s paintings, the intellectual and the emotional synthesize to form images that touch the viewer’s heart whilst issuing a challenge: there are deeper meanings to be unraveled, hidden clues amongst the hyper-real still lives, portraits and animal scenes; meanings which echo deep in the unconscious mind. Reviewers have compared Movchan’s work to Velasquez, Colville and Magritte*. Yana trained at the Ukrainian Art Academy. Her master’s thesis project (a triptych entitled "Life on Earth") won the Golden Fund Prize, the Academy’s highest art award*. Her work has featured in solo and group exhibitions in the Ukraine, Prague, London and Canada. She is based in Halifax, Canada, where she lives with her husband and two young sons. AWARDS 2007 - Glenn Gould Foundation commission. Commemorative portrait of the celebrated pianist to mark the 75th anniversary of his birth. 2001 - Best Painting Award*, Annual Juried Show, Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition. 1995 - Golden Fund Prize (the highest art award in the Ukrainian Art Academy) for "Life on Earth" (triptych, oil on canvas). 1989 - Ukrainian Art Academy Award* of Excellence for "Thoughts of Harmony" (oil on canvas). Painting accepted into the National Art Museum of Ukraine collection. "Thoughts of Harmony" received the highest possible marks and was later purchased by the Museum. La pittrice Yanina (Yana) Movchan è nata a Kiev, Ucraina. La sua pittura di stampo rinascimentale si combina col "realismo magico" creando un personalissimo stile neo-realista. Il suo lavoro è stato paragonato da molti critici a quello di Velasques, Colville e Magritte. Ha tenuto mostre personali e collettive in Ucraina, Praga, Londra e Canada. Ha sede a Halifax, Canada, dove vive con il marito e due figli. FOR MORE SUCH ARTWORKS & ARTISTS' FOLLOW SUJITH PUTHRAN
  2. Adolphe Valette | Urban landscapes of Manchester Pierre Adolphe Valette (1876-1942) was a French Impressionist painter. His most acclaimed paintings are urban landscapes of Manchester, now in the collection of Manchester Art Gallery. Today, he is chiefly remembered as L. S. Lowry's tutor. Born in St Etienne in 1876, he trained at the Ecole Municipale de Beaux-Arts et des Arts Decoratifs in Bordeaux. Valette arrived in England for unknown reasons in 1904 and studied at the Birkbeck Institute, now part of the University of London. In 1905 he travelled to the North West of England where he designed greetings cards and calendars for a Manchester printing company. He attended evening classes at Manchester Municipal School of Art and in 1907 he was invited to join the staff as a teacher. His French teaching style, painting by demonstration, was new to the United Kingdom. Lowry expressed great admiration for Valette, who taught him new techniques and showed him the potential of the urban landscape as a subject. He called him "a real teacher … a dedicated teacher". Lowry added: "I cannot over-estimate the effect on me of the coming into this drab city of Adolphe Valette, full of French impressionists, aware of everything that was going on in Paris". In 1920 Valette resigned from the Institute owing to ill health. He stayed in Lancashire for eight more years, teaching privately and painting in Manchester and Bolton. In 1928 he returned to Paris, and subsequently moved to Blacé en Beaujolais where he died in 1942. Valette's paintings are Impressionist, a style that suited the damp fogginess of Manchester. Manchester Art Gallery has a room devoted to him, where the viewer may compare some of his paintings with some of Lowry's, and judge to what extent Lowry's own style was influenced by him and by French Impressionism generally. The Lowry hosted an exhibition of about 100 works by Valette alongside works by his pupil L. S. Lowry between October 2011 and January 2012. It included paintings of Manchester from Manchester Art Gallery and loans from private owners. FOR MORE SUCH ARTWORKS & ARTISTS' FOLLOW SUJITH PUTHRAN

  4. Arnold Böcklin | A Modern Visionary | Symbolist painter Amajor artist of the late 19th century, the Swiss painter Arnold Böcklin (1827-1901) remains little-known in France, where his art was often reduced to the fascinating icon of only one of his many masterpieces, The Isle of the Dead. Rediscovered in the 1910s by surrealist painters - Giorgio de Chirico** and Max Ernst** in particular - who found a powerful inspiration in his fantastic and iconoclastic vision of mythology. Although it was long considered as "Germanic", if Böcklin's painting draws its inspiration in the artistic, literary and esthetical German traditions, it also breaks away from it. His first landscapes, impregnated with romanticism, took stock of the lessons of Johann Wilhelm Schirmer and Carl Friedrich Lessing with Castle in Ruin at Twilight, 1847 (Berlin, Nationalgalerie). His art also reflects a Nordic interpretation of the Latin character shared with the Deutsch-Römer, the German artists** who settled in Rome in the middle of the century. As he travelled widely, he was also influenced by other trends in European painting: Rubens**, for instance, whose memory haunts the depictions of fighting centaurs and the large fight scenes of the later years; Poussin and Le Lorrain, whose ideal landscapes are echoed in the series of Villas on the Seaside. Böcklin spent a large part of his life in Italy, where he was strongly marked by Pompeian art - Portrait of Angela Böcklin as a Muse, 1863 (Basel, Kunstmuseum) - and by the Italian Renaissance** he remembered in the sumptuous portraits and allegories of the 1870s in Munich - Self-Portrait, 1873 (Hamburg, Kunsthalle) and Anacréon's Muse, 1873 (Aarau, Aargauer Kunsthaus). To him, the Mediterranean antiquity was a golden age for humanity living in harmony with nature. His mythological creatures - Pan in the Reeds, 1859 (Munich, Neue Pinakothek), Spring Evening, 1879 (Budapest, Szepmüveszeti Museum) - express the artist's nostalgia and his deep scepticism towards modern civilisation, with affinities with the international symbolism** of the 1890s. Yet Böcklin's style, perfectly original, cannot be compared to that of any great symbolist. Rediscovering Böcklin, the surrealists highlighted the extraordinary creativity of the artist, his iconographic invention, the scholarly and iconoclastic exploration of mythology he practised, the extreme eroticism and morbidity of some of his work, the mix of genres and repertories, all that we now associate with a surprising modernity. This eclecticism is a characteristic of some large sea scenes, including Mermaids at Play, 1886 (Basel, Kunstmuseum) where tritons and naiads, lacking all idealisation, show the ferocious irony of the artist towards terrestrial and sensual appetites of the triumphant bourgeoisie of the first period of the Empire. During his stay in Naples, Böcklin developed a passion for the research carried out at the zoological station (a research centre on sea animals); they were to feed the fantastical bestiary of hybrid creatures inhabiting his paintings, especially sea scenes. Böcklin had a very high conception of the artist's destiny and of artistic creation - as testified by his impressive self-portraits, including the Self-portrait in the Workshop, 1893 (Basel, Kunstmuseum) and throughout his life he confronted, often painfully, with the fundamental questions of painting, of illusion, shape and colour. His fellow-countryman Félix Vallotton** recalls in the account in the Revue Blanche of the 50th-anniversary exhibition in Basel in 1897, how much for Böklin "to paint is a task for the elected" as he was "by turns haunted by all dreams, all ambitions: of shape, colour and expression". This perpetual quest was reflected in his traveller's life and the continuous renewal of the form of his work. After stays in Basel, Weimar and Munich, he spent the last ten years of his life in Florence, in Italy that to him was a second homeland, where he achieved Ulysses and Calypso, 1880 (Basel, Kunstmuseum) and the first version of The Isle of the Dead(Basel, Kunstmuseum). Artista di spicco di fine Ottocento, il pittore Svizzero Arnold Böcklin (1827-1901) è poco conosciuto in Francia dove la sua arte è stata spesso limitata soltanto ad uno dei suoi splendidi capolavori, L'Isola dei Morti. Riscoperto negli anni a cavallo tra il 1910-1920 da alcuni pittori surrealisti -primi fra tutti Giorgio de Chirico** Max Ernst**, molto ispirati dalla sua visione fantastica e iconoclasta della mitologia. La pittura di Böcklin, benché per un lungo periodo di tempo sia stata considerata "germanica", pur ispirandosi alle tradizioni artistiche, letterarie ed estetiche della Germania, si distacca da queste fonti. I suoi primi paesaggi impregnati di romanticismo si rifanno alle lezioni di Johann Wilhelm Schirmer e di Carl Friedrich Lessing - Castello in rovina al crepuscolo, 1847 (Berlino, Nationalgalerie). La sua pittura riflette altresì un'interpretazione nordica della latinità condivisa con i Deutsch-Römer, artisti tedeschi stabilitisi a Roma verso la metà del secolo; l'artista, inoltre, avendo a lungo viaggiato, ha subito molto l'influsso di altre correnti della storia della pittura europea: Rubens** ad esempio, il cui ricordo alberga nelle centauromachie e nelle grandi scene di combattimento degli ultimi anni; Poussin e Le Lorrain, i cui paesaggi ideali riecheggiano nella serie delle Ville in riva al mare. Böcklin ha trascorso una parte consistente della sua vita in Italia, subendo il forte influsso dell'arte pompeiana- Ritratto di Angela Böcklin in veste di musa, 1863 (Basilea, Kunstmuseum) - e del Rinascimento** italiano, del quale serba il ricordo nella fastosità dei ritratti e delle allegorie dipinti negli anni settanta del XIX secolo a Monaco - Autoritratto, 1873 (Amburgo, Kunsthalle), La musa di Anacreonte, 1873 (Aarau, Aargauer Kunsthaus). L'artista vedeva nell'antichità mediterranea un'età d'oro per l'umanità che viveva in armonia con la natura. Le sue creature mitologiche - Pan nel canneto, 1859 (Monaco, Neue Pinakothek), Sera di primavera, 1879 (Budapest, Szepmüveszeti Museum) - esprimono la nostalgia dell'artista e il suo profondo scetticismo nei confronti della civiltà moderna non senza affinità con il simbolismo** internazionale degli anni novanta del XIX secolo. Lo stile di Böcklin, tuttavia, completamente originale, non può essere paragonato a quello di nessuno dei maggiori simbolisti**. Con la riscoperta di Böcklin, i surrealisti hanno messo in evidenza la straordinaria creatività del pittore, la sua inventiva iconografica, l'esplorazione erudita ed iconoclastica della mitologia che l'artista metteva in pratica, l'erotismo e la morbosità, fuori da ogni norma, di certe opere, la commistione dei generi e dei registri, tutta una serie di fatti, questi, che si rivelano per il nostro modo si pensare di una sorprendente modernità. Questo eclettismo caratterizza alcune grandi scene raffiguranti paesaggi marini, tra cui Giochi tra le onde, 1886 (Basilea, Kunstmuseum) dove tritoni e naiadi privi di qualsiasi idealità, rivelano la feroce ironia del pittore di fronte agli appetiti terrestri e sensuali della borghesia trionfante dei primi periodi dell'Impero. Durante il suo soggiorno a Napoli, Böcklin si era appassionato alle ricerche della stazione zoologica (centro di ricerche sugli animali marini); questi studi contribuiranno ad ampliare il bestiario fantastico delle creature ibride che popolano i suoi quadri, più in particolare le scene di mare. Böcklin aveva un'altissima concezione del destino dell'artista e della creazione artistica - come testimoniano i suoi impressionanti autoritratti, tra cui L'Autoritratto in bottega, 1893 (Basilea, Kunstmuseum) e per tutta la sua vita si è confrontato, non senza sofferenza, con le questioni fondamentali della pittura, dell'illusione, della forma e del colore. Il suo compatriota Félix Vallotton**, nel resoconto della mostra giubilare di Basilea nel 1897, per la Revue Blanche, ricorda quanto per Böcklin "dipingere sia una missione elettiva", per lui che è stato "di volta in volta ossessionato da tutti i sogni, da tutte le ambizioni: ambizioni di forma, di colore e d'espressione". Questa ricerca perpetua si riflette nella sua vita itinerante e nell'incessante rinnovamento formale della sua opera. Dopo aver soggiornato a Basilea, Weimar e Monaco, l'artista trascorre gli ultimi dieci anni della sua vita a Firenze. Proprio in quest'angolo d'Italia che diventerà per lui una seconda patria, Böcklin lavora alla creazione di Ulisse e Calipso, 1880 (Basilea, Kunstmuseum) e mette mano alla prima versione di L'Isola dei Morti, (Basilea, Kunstmuseum).

  7. Francesco Hayez / Shakespeare | The Kiss, 1859 | Art in Detail Let me not to the marriage of true minds Love is not love Which alters when it alteration finds, Or bends with the remover to remove: O no! it is an ever-fixed mark That looks on tempests and is never shaken; Non sia mai ch'io ponga impedimenti all'unione di anime fedeli; Amore non è Amore se muta quando scopre un mutamento o tende a svanire quando l'altro s'allontana. Oh no! Amore è un faro sempre fisso che sovrasta la tempesta e non vacilla mai; It is the star to every wandering bark, Whose worth's unknown, although his height be taken. Love's not Time's fool, though rosy lips and cheeks Within his bending sickle's compass come: Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks, But bears it out even to the edge of doom. If this be error and upon me proved, I never writ, nor no man ever loved. Non sia mai ch'io ponga impedimenti all'unione di anime fedeli; Amore non è Amore se muta quando scopre un mutamento o tende a svanire quando l'altro s'allontana. Oh no! Amore è un faro sempre fisso che sovrasta la tempesta e non vacilla mai; è la stella-guida di ogni sperduta barca, il cui valore è sconosciuto, benché nota la distanza. Amore non è soggetto al Tempo, pur se rosee labbra e gote dovran cadere sotto la sua curva lama; Amore non muta in poche ore o settimane, ma impavido resiste al giorno estremo del giudizio: se questo è errore e mi sarà provato, io non ho mai scritto, e nessuno ha mai amato.

  14. Louis Treserras, 1958 | Hyperrealist painter French painter⏭, sculptor and photographer Louis Treserras claims to be a self taught painter. For 30 years he has been painting young and mysterious nude female models. His rigorous approach to artistic composition would almost compare to a science, like mathematics. His style remains however poetic an intimist, with a very distinct and soft range of colors. A contemporary artist with a highly classical technique, characteristic of the uncompromising self-taught artist. The looks, gestures and attitudes are all words we hear are deaf yet. Louis Treserras is a painter of his time, he explores his own emotions through his paintings. For nearly 30 years he painted nudes. Defining itself as a self-taught he has put his technical and almost mathematical approach to the body art of a deeply intimate and poetic. For him the artistic adventure began in childhood. In his paintings painted Treserras girls slender, a dreamer or faint. FOR MORE SUCH ARTISTS' & ARTWORKS FOLLOW SUJITH PUTHRAN

  16. Hiroshi Yoshida | Landscape painter / printmaker Hiroshi Yoshida / 吉田 博 (September 19, 1876 - April 5, 1950) was a 20th-century Japanese painter and woodblock printmaker. He is regarded as one of the greatest artists of the shin-hanga style, and is noted especially for his excellent landscape prints. Yoshida travelled widely, and was particularly known for his images of non-Japanese subjects done in traditional Japanese woodblock style, including the Taj Mahal, the Swiss Alps, the Grand Canyon, and other National Parks in the United States. Biography Hiroshi Yoshida (born Hiroshi Ueda) was born in the city of Kurume, Fukuoka, in Kyushu, on September 19, 1876. He showed an early aptitude for art fostered by his adoptive father, a teacher of painting in the public schools. At age 19 he was sent to Kyoto to study under Tamura Shoryu, a well known teacher of western style painting. He then studied under Koyama Shotaro, in Tokyo, for another three years. In 1899, Yoshida had his first American exhibition at Detroit Museum of Art (now Detroit Institute of Art). He then traveled to Boston, Washington, D.C., Providence and Europe. In 1920, Yoshida presented his first woodcut at the Watanabe Print Workshop, organized by Watanabe Shōzaburō (1885-1962), publisher and advocate of the shin-hanga movement. However, Yoshida's collaboration with Watanabe was short partly due to Watanabe's shop burning down because of the Great Kanto earthquake on September 1, 1923. In 1925, he hired a group of professional carvers and printers, and established his own studio. Prints were made under his close supervision. Yoshida combined the ukiyo-e collaborative system with the sōsaku-hanga principle of "artist's prints", and formed a third school, separating himself from the shin-hanga and sōsaku-hanga movement. The Yoshida family legacy The artistic lineage of the Yoshida family of eight artists: Kasaburo Yoshida (1861-1894), whose wife Rui Yoshida was an artist; their daughter Fujio Yoshida (1887-1987); Hiroshi Yoshida (1876-1950), their adopted son, who married Fujio; Tōshi Yoshida (1911-1995), Hiroshi's son, whose wife Kiso Yoshida (1919-2005) was an artist; Hodaka Yoshida (1926-1995), another of Hiroshi's sons, whose wife Chizuko Yoshida (b. 1924) and daughter Ayomi Yoshida (b. 1958) are artists. This group, four men and four women spanning four generations, provides an interesting perspective in looking at Japanese history and art development in the turbulent 20th Century. Although they inherit the same tradition, the Yoshida family artists work in different styles with different sensibilities. Toshi Yoshida and the Yoshida family have used the original Hiroshi Yoshida woodblocks to create later versions, including posthumous, of Hiroshi Yoshida prints. Prints created under Hiroshi Yoshida's management with special care have a jizuri seal kanji stamp. The Hiroshi Yoshida signatures vary depending on the agents and time of creation. Hiroshi Yoshida prints sold originally in the Japanese market will not have a pencil signature or title in English. Hiroshi Yoshida / 吉田 博 (Kurume, 19 settembre 1876 - Tokyo, 5 aprile 1950) è stato un incisore e pittore Giapponese. Noto per le stampe raffiguranti suggestivi panorami e soggetti non giapponesi, tra cui il Taj Mahal, le alpi svizzere e il Grand Canyon, è considerato tra i migliori rappresentanti del movimento Shin-hanga. Biografia Hiroshi Yoshida, nato Hiroshi Ueda, nasce il 19 settembre 1876 nella città di Kurume, nella prefettura di Fukuoka dell'isola di Kyūshū. Mostra presto un'attitudine al disegno, stimolata dal suo padre adottivo, un insegnante di pittura alla scuola pubblica. All'età di 19 anni viene inviato a Kyoto per studiare sotto la guida di Tamura Shoryu, un noto insegnante di pittura occidentale; successivamente trascorre altri tre anni a Tokyo sotto gli insegnamenti di Koyama Shotaro. Yoshida organizzò la sua prima mostra al Detroit Museum of Art (ora Detroit Institute of Arts) nel 1899. FOR MORE SUCH ARTISTS AND ARTWORKS FOLLOW SUJITH PUTHRAN
  17. Loui Jover | Abstract /Surrealist painter

    Loui Jover, 1967 | Abstract /Surrealist painter Loui Jover is an Australian based painter with a unique style of art. He basically uses ink on pages from vintage books to create eye-catching and emotionally charged images of women’s faces. His images also incorporate couples in intensely emotional states. His works have been hailed as truly creative and emotional. As an avid artist who draws every single day creating books of cartoons and drawings, Loui has travelled extensively all over Europe and Asia. "Dipingo, disegno, e lo faccio tutti i giorni". Loui Jover, pittore europeo emigrato in Australia, dipinge su fragili pagine di libri d'epoca per creare immagini emotivamente cariche di volti di donne accattivanti. L’artista ritrae scene melanconiche che risaltano notevolmente sulle pagine ingiallite. Lui stesso dice che "c’è un senso di fragilità in queste immagini che trovo interessante (come se il vento potesse soffiarle via in qualsiasi momento) e la mano che disegna rigide linee nere contro l’intricata selva di parole stampate nelle pagine del libro offre una strana fusione e profondità" e che "il significato di ciascuna illustrazione può essere interpretabile dall'osservatore e dalla propria immaginazione".

  19. Wassily Kandinsky | Abstract /Expressionist painter Wassily Kandinsky and Franz Marc, 1911 By this time, according to his reminiscences, he had lost much of his early enthusiasm for the social sciences. He felt, however, that art was "a luxury forbidden to a Russian". Eventually, after a period of teaching at the university, he accepted a post as the director of the photographic section of a Moscow printing establishment. In 1896, when he was approaching his 30th birthday, he was forced to choose among his possible futures, for he was offered a professorship in jurisprudence at the University of Dorpat (later called Tartu), in Estonia, which was then undergoing Russification. In what he called a "now or never" mood, he turned down the offer and took the train for Germany with the intention of becoming a painter. In 1921 he founded the Russian Academy of Artistic Sciences. But by then the Soviet government was veering from avant-garde art to Social Realism, and so, at the end of the year, he and his wife left Moscow for Berlin.

    Nguyen Tuan, 1963 | Figurative sculptor Born in Vietnam, Nguyen Tuan experienced the fall of Saigon in 1975, survived a failed escape attempt from his native land in 1988, witnessed the death of his close friend in the same escape attempt, and was then cast into a concentration camp. Almost miraculously, he escaped the camp and fled to the United States where he became captivated with sculpting. In 1995, Tuan Nguyen received his fine art degree from the Art Institute of Southern California in Laguna Beach, CA. > The Vietnamese master sculptor Nguyen Tuan is internationally known for his seemingly "weightless" figurative sculpture merging Western techniques with traditional Eastern values. He has coined the term "existential balance" to bring emphasis to the importance of balance to human existence. Tuan Nguyen has received the Gloria Medal* from the National Sculpture Society (New York), a medal designed by C. Paul Jennewein and bestowed upon a young artist in Jennewein's memory for a meritorious body of work as determined by the luminary board of the Society. In 2006, Tuan received the Gold Medal* for Sculpture from the California Art Club for his work “Rendezvous”. Among his most notable public installations are the Vietnam War Memorial in Westminster, California, the heroic sculpture of Saint Therese in Mobile, Alabama, and the extensive public collection of his works at the Plaza in Orlando, Florida. Tuan’s latest project is the creation of a Vietnamese Refugee Memorial. Tuan’s works can be found in the permanent collections of the Pasadena Museum of Art and the White House.

  22. Imagined Insects Camouflaged as Star Wars Characters by Illustrator Richard Wilkinson UK-based illustrator Richard Wilkinson created a series of fantastical insects based on the most famous Star Wars characters. It’s easy to imagine these incredibly life-like renderings truly existing as creatures crawling on a planet far away, and each is given a cheeky scientific name with Latin roots that relate to its sci-fi counterparts like Roboduobus Deoduobus for R2D2 or Chaetebarbatus Bonamicii for Chewbacca. Wilkinson has previous experience creating scientifically-minded illustrations for publications like New Scientist and Intelligent Life Magazine. These first 10 illustrations titled Insects From A Far Away Galaxy are just the first set in a much larger body of work for a planned book, Arthropoda Iconicus Volume I, that will make references to other pop culture characters like Pokemon, Marvel Comics, and Disney. The pieces seen here are now available as limited edition prints, and you can follow more of Wilkinson’s work on Instagram. For more such Artists' & ArtWorks follow SUJITH PUTHRAN

  24. Hello World!

    Hello everyone. My name is Rodrigo Lopes, aka Rodd Lopes. I'm from Brazil and have been drawing and painting since I was a small child. I never used traditional media, which means I've always used digital ways to create my art. Well, except for the time I was a child and used paper and pencil :). Today I paint and draw in Photoshop, Procreate (Ipad) and Sketchbook Pro. I don't have a certain recognizable style if you will. Some people say they can see something in common in all my artworks but I'm not so sure, I usually paint very different themes as Sci-Fi, landscapes, portraits etc. I really don't consider myself a professional artist, first because I don't work with art, I have a job which is quite far from creating art, secondly because I think I still have a long way to go, there are so many things I'm still struggling to learn. I'm a self-taught artist, actually I'm self-taught in pretty much all I know in life, English included. My mother language is Brazilian Portuguese. I like making friends and talking about art, movies, series and books. I'm outgoing and friendly towards everyone. I hope you guys like my artwork. Thanks for having me in this Forum.
