  2. Jack Vettriano, 1951 | Realist / Figurative / Genre painter Born in Fife, Scotland, Jack Vettriano left school at sixteen to become a mining engineer. For his twenty-first birthday, a girlfriend gave him a set of watercolour paints and, from then on, he spent much of his spare time teaching himself to paint. In 1989, he submitted two paintings to the Royal Scottish Academy’s annual exhibition; both were accepted and sold on the first day. The following year, an equally enthusiastic reaction greeted the three paintings, which he entered for the prestigious Summer Exhibition at London’s Royal Academy and his new life as an artist began from that point on. Over the last twenty years, interest in Vettriano’s work has grown consistently. There have been sell-out solo exhibitions in Edinburgh, London, Hong Kong and New York. 2004 was an exceptional year in Vettriano’s career; his best known painting, The Singing Butler was sold at Sotheby’s for close to £750,000; he was awarded an OBE for Services to the Visual Arts and was the subject of a South Bank Show documentary, entitled "Jack Vettriano: The People’s Painter". From 1994-2007, Vettriano was represented by Portland Gallery in London but the relationship ended in June 2007. In 2008, Vettriano undertook a variety of private projects, including the launch of a new book, Studio Life, and commissions to paint portraits of Sir Jackie Stewart and Zara Phillips, the latter of which was part of a charity fund-raising project for Sport Relief, the experience of which was captured in a documentary broadcast on BBC1 in March 2008. In 2009, Vettriano was commissioned by the Yacht Club of Monaco to create a series of paintings to mark the centenary of their world famous yacht, Tuiga. The subsequent exhibition, "Homage a Tuiga", premiered in Monaco as part of Classic Yacht Week in September 2009, before touring to the UK in 2010. In 2010, an exhibition of over forty new paintings, "Days of Wine and Roses", was officially opened at the Kirkcaldy Museum & Art Gallery in Fife, by First Minister, the Rt Hon Alex Salmond SNP. The exhibition then toured to London, opening at Heartbreak in September 2010. In December 2011, Vettriano’s self-portrait, "The Weight", went on long-term display at the Scottish National Portrait Gallery in Edinburgh, when it re-opened after a major three-year refurbishment programme. A major Retrospective exhibition to mark 20 Years of Vettriano’s career, opened at Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, Glasgow on the 21st September 2013 amd ran until 23rd February 2014. In April 2015, Vettriano established his own publishing company called Jack Vettriano Publishing Limited. Jack Hoggan, noto come Jack Vettriano (Methil, 17 novembre 1951), è un pittore Scozzese di origini italiane, onorato da Elisabetta II d'Inghilterra con l'Ordine dell'Impero Britannico (OBE). Biografia Cresce nella città industriale di Methil, Scozia. La sua è una famiglia povera: "dovevo dividere un unico letto con mio fratello maggiore" racconta; così il futuro artista è spinto a lavorare fin da ragazzino. Lasciati gli studi a 16 anni, diviene apprendista minerario e comincia a dipingere negli anni settanta con un set di acquerelli ricevuti in regalo per il suo ventunesimo compleanno. I suoi primi quadri sono firmati Jack Hoggan e sono più che altro riproduzioni di impressionisti. Dopo quattordici anni riesce ad esibire le sue opere professionalmente. Nel 1988 si sente infatti pronto ad esibire i suoi quadri in pubblico e presenta due opere alla mostra annuale della Royal Scottish Academy. Entrambe vengono vendute il primo giorno della mostra e Vettriano riceve immediatamente numerose offerte da varie gallerie artistiche. Il successo contribuisce al declino del suo primo rapporto coniugale e il pittore decide quindi di trasferirsi a Edimburgo, cambiando anche nome in Vettriano, derivazione dal cognome da nubile della madre, Vettraino, figlia di un emigrante italiano che agli inizi del '900 partì da Belmonte Castello nella Valle di Comino (Frosinone), per andare a lavorare nelle miniere di carbone nel nord della Scozia. Mostre e incassi Le città di Edimburgo, Londra, Hong Kong, Johannesburg, e New York hanno ospitato numerose sue mostre. I suoi quadri ricordano il genere film noir, spesso con tematiche romantiche e nudi in primo piano. I suoi lavori sono talvolta stati tacciati di populismo e definiti privi di immaginazione da alcuni critici d'arte. Vettriano è tuttavia uno dei pittori viventi più venduti internazionalmente. I suoi originali vengono valutati altissime cifre, ma sembra che le sue riproduzioni guadagnino addirittura di più. Il quotidiano The Guardian afferma che l'artista incassi 500.000 sterline all'anno in soli diritti d'autore per riproduzioni tipografiche. La sua opera più famosa, The Singing Butler, ogni anno viene regolarmente riprodotta su biglietti d'auguri in Gran Bretagna e vende più di qualsiasi altro artista. In Italia, molte sue opere sono state riprodotte su copertine di libri di letteratura moderna. Il 21 aprile 2004 l'opera originale The Singing Butler è stata venduta all'asta per 744.500 sterline. Nel novembre 1999, i lavori di Vettriano sono stati esposti per la prima volta a New York, esibiti alla International 20th Century Arts Fair. Una serie di sue opere è stata venduta per un totale superiore al milione di sterline in agosto 2007. L'opera più costosa è stata Bluebird at Bonneville, comprata per 468.000 sterline all'asta di Sotheby's tenutasi in Scozia, presso il Gleneagles Hotel. Jack Vettriano | Bluebird at Bonneville Vettriano mantiene laboratori d'arte in Scozia, Londra e Nizza. È stato rappresentato dalla Portland Gallery fino al 2007, suoi quadri sono stati acquistati da Jack Nicholson, Sir Alex Ferguson, Sir Tim Rice e Robbie Coltrane e altre importanti personalità. A tutt'oggi sono stati pubblicati cinque volumi sulla sua vita e opere, l'ultimo nel 2008 col titolo Studio Life. for more such Artworks and Artists' follow SUJITH PUTHRAN

  4. Nguyen Tuan, 1963 | Figurative sculptor

    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.

  10. Luigi da Rios - Italian Artist

    Luigi da Rios | painter Luigi da Rios (1843 - February, 1892) was an Italian painter. He was born in Ceneda, Vittorio Veneto. He was a pupil at the Academy of Fine Arts of Venice, where he won a number of awards. Forced into exile to avoid conscription into the Austrian armies, he fled to Florence in May 1866. With the end of the conflict, he returned to Venice, and began to paint portraits, genre, and historical subjects. He exhibited frequently from 1867-1882 at the yearly exhibitions of the Venetian Promotrice di Belle Arti. Among his works are: Una cameriera; Torquato Tasso; Raffaello e la Fornarina; Le donne al pozzo (won first prize in 1872 at the Regional Exhibition at Treviso); Le analfabete (the illiterate); L'orfanella; Una calle a Venezia; Dopo la messa; Dopo il lavoro; and Lettura. He also exhibited in 1881 at Milano, 1887 at Venice, and at the Royal Academy of London. He painted frescoes for Villa Bisacco-Palazzi in Chirignago (1864), in Villa Visconti di Modrone on Lake Como (1866) and in the parish church of Chirignago (1878). He was appointed academic of merit to the Venetian Academy, and member of the Society of Watercolor painters of Brussels. He died in Venice in 1892. Da Rios, Luigi - Figlio di Domenico, nacque a Ceneda, oggi Vittorio Veneto (provincia di Treviso), nel 1844. Dopo aver frequentato giovanissimo una bottega da falegname, si iscrisse all'accademia di belle arti di Venezia all'età di quindici anni. Attraverso gli Atti dell'accademia è possibile ricostruire i numerosi premi, medaglie, "accessit" ottenuti tra il 1859 e il 1864 in quasi t utti gli insegnamenti offerti dall'accademia stessa. Fuggito a Firenze nel maggio 1866 per sottrarsi alla coscrizione austriaca, si applicò allo studio dei capolavori dell'arte fiorentina del Quattro e Cinquecento. Rientrò a Venezia dopo l'unione del Veneto al Regno d'Italia (ottobre 1866), trasferendosi per breve tempo a Milano e sul lago di Como per realizzare un ciclo di affreschi in una villa Visconti di Modrone. In questi anni si dedicò anche alla ritrattistica, ma si specializzò in seguito in quadri di genere di soggetto popolare veneziano. Partecipò assiduamente alle mostre annuali della Società veneta promotrice di belle arti esponendo numerosi dipinti: nel 1867 - Testa di fanciulla; nel 1868 - La visita alle tombe; nel 1869 - Una cameriera; nel 1870 - Un ricordo dell'estinto, e Torquato Tasso; nel 1871 - Raffaello e la Fornarina; nel 1872 - Pia de' Tolomei, Due pezzenti, Un ponte a Venezia; nel 1873 - Una lettera in cattive mani, Le donne al pozzo - che ottenne il primo premio all'Esposizione regionale veneta di Treviso, 1872, Le analfabete, L'orfanella, Una calle a Venezia, Nell'Alpago dopo il tramonto; nel 1874 - Dopo la messa, Dopo il lavoro, Il custode della casa di Dio; nel 1875 - Una magra colazione; nel 1878 - Cossa gastu fato?, Un virtuoso del secolo scorso; nel 1879 - Studiosa, Lettura; e nel 1881, Una chioggiotta. Nello stesso anno vendette un acquarello, La ricreazione, alla Società Donatello (Memorie...,1884). Altre opere del da Rios sono: Veronica Franco rifiuta i doni inviati da Enrico III; Il carnevale di Venezia, vasto affresco, già nell'albergo Europa di Milano; Venere (1877); Una fondamenta (1879); Le orfanelle (1881); Primavera (1882); La tombola, I colombi di piazza S. Marco, Le curiose (1883-84); Venditore di zucche, Il papà ritorna (1889). Partecipò alle Esposizioni nazionali di Milano del 1881 (con Tentazioni in casa di Dio e Fondamenta a Venezia), e di Venezia, del 1887, con Il papà non viene. A quell'epoca abitava a Venezia, ai Carmini (L'Esposizione nazionale artistica illustrata, 1887). Un suo Ritratto di Umberto I, già segnalato presso la prefettura di Venezia (Comanducci, 1934), è ora irreperibile; si conservano, invece, i suoi affreschi nella villa Bisacco-Palazzi di Chirignago (Venezia) del 1864, con episodi di ambientazione settecentesca, significativi di un precoce revival neo tiepolesco: Cantastorie, Ciarlatano, Indovino, Cavadenti, Giochi di putti. Nella stessa villa si conservano un affresco raffigurante Madonna con Bambino e dipinti ad olio: due Ritratti dei Bisacco-Palazzi (1865), ed un Ritratto di giovane (1876). Nella chiesa parrocchiale di Chirignago affrescò soffitto e pareti nel 1878: Predica del Battista, la Vergine con le virtù teologali, S. Giorgio, S. Francesco di Sales, Il S. Cuore appare a s. Maria Margherita Alacoque (firmato), Pio IX, gli Evangelisti e Padreterno. Fu accademico di merito all'Accademia di belle arti di Venezia e membro della Società degli acquarellisti di Bruxelles; espose pure all'Accademia reale di Londra. Il da Rios morì nel febbraio 1892.
