The young creative Belen Moreno

 

Belén Moreno is a young Spanish artist born in 1987, currently residing in Sevilla, I carry out her studies in illustration and fine arts at the University of Granada. 
 
In her works unconscious introspection and seize it. Lacking grid planning, emotions, experiences and the need to extrapolate ideas or concepts made ​​pooling, become the protagonists of the piece. 
 
The work and discourse are constantly changing, constantly developing, at the mercy of the visual and sensory perception itself. Requires an understanding not only an accompaniment and peace. Pretending to contact those who observe it, discarding the audience watching without more, staying in the superficial technique. 
 
Without seeking to persuade or educate the viewer in any way, intend that emerges is rather share or infuse reflection, with own personal character. The person facing the work will not know where or what to see, what we put in front of something unknown, but nevertheless would refer to something familiar. We all share an imaginary, to which we attach different meanings in our unconscious. The symbols are universal but can be considered completely free of interpretation, since depending on who you see its meaning changes, your experience changes, the reading changes.

Colourful Paintings by Françoise Nielly

Untitled 332 (2005) by Françoise Nielly



Françoise Nielly is a french artist born in Marseille, France; but now she lives and works in Paris.  She studied Fine Arts and Decorative Arts in France.  Her father was an architect, that's why and how she gets her sense of space and construction in her paintings. 

Françoise Nielly's paintings are expressive, exhibiting a vital energy and a force through each stroke.  Combining oil and a palette knife sculpting her images from a material that is, at the same time, biting and incisive, carnal and sensual. Whether she paints the human body or portraits, she always takes a risk: her painting is sexual, her colours are free, exuberant, surprising, even explosive, the cut of her knife incisive, her colour pallet dazzling. 

Françoise Nielly is a passionate woman who loves life, wide open spaces, sushi, blue lagoons, the Internet, humor, books, Paris, New-york and Vancouver. Resolutely inscribed in her epoch, she is an accomplished artist ; 20 years of artistic expression explain the maturity of her work and the perfect mastery of her art.


Untitled 392 (2006) by Françoise Nielly



Françoise Nielly got noticed by her incredible dexterity to handle the knife and the oil. Exposing all over the world, her art tries to move closer to the technique of the Cubists which consists in a representation of bodies of facets and a slightly acid pop universe which is inspired by paintings of Andy Warhol. Françoise Nielly, with her work about color which she destroys and decomposes the faces, she inspires herself and her work is influenced with the paintings of Picasso or Francis Bacon.

She redoes the human face in each of her paintings.  The brightness of life which appear from her painting arise from a hand-to-hand fight with the painting. The color is launched as a missile. Her energy gives to every touch the intensity of a sound vibration. The spots of painting are musical touches, dissonant and noisy as life. The forms and the volumes arise from the color. These colors, lively and brilliant, who remind her of the colors of the landscapes of the South of France where she spent her childhood, offer to her works an expressiveness, a  strength and a process of the striking portrait.  

Françoise Nielly has collaborated with various fashion designers and companies so she could bring them her colored touch. She has worked with Citroën Survolt the "ArtCar", with Snowboard Burton, Orly Vanish, Irm Design, and Givenchy.

Drowning Sculptures by Ivan Puig

Ivan Puig Crecimientos Artificiales


Ivan Puis is an artist living in Mexico, who’s main characteristic is that he lets his sculptures “drown”.  Two of his artworks are called “Artificial Growth Chairs that Drown” and “Fed up”.  The second series is made under the idea of the proportion of the incidents and their relativity.  

In general throughout his work, he attracts the attention by using the power in the country by which the education doctrine is confronted as well as its system, strongly influenced by the conflicts  in the economic, political and social order.  He uses a comic narrative with a touch of irony.  The spectador passes by the pieces as if it were zooming out, this discursive system gives a particular importance to the last piece, in which it synthesizes and in return the entire work intakes a dimension.  Despite both works have different contexts and different meanings, we can appreciate in his sculptures the encouraging tragedy behind.

Paul Kaptein, the Plywood Sculptor

 

Paul Kaptein is a laminated wood sculptor. His work is broadly concerned with the agency of the present moment.  By sampling various cultural and temporal trajectories, he's exploring the notion of the now as a remix of past and future potentialities. This facilitates a renegotiation of perceptual truths resulting in an expression of things not quite truth, however not quite fiction.  Central to this is the underlying theory of emptiness (sunyata). Often considered a void, Sunyata offers endless possibility.

Henri Lamy, a moments Man, a moments Artist

Life is lived and remembered in moments. Writers, musicians, philosophers, actors, sportsmen, teachers and my granddad, who had a terrible memory, have all said it. And it’s true. No one ever remembers the date or time of this and that, because it’s irrelevant. The human framework is the heart and soul, not the calendars and clocks. Henri Lamy is a moments man. A moments Artist.
 
Born in France, Henri Lamy was encouraged at a very young age by his father to pick up a paint brush and express himself. And since his early years, Henri Lamy has developed a style and technique, which borrows from some of the greats, such as Jackson Pollock’s ‘drip painting’, but which also lends to his own unique brilliance.
 
Up close his work appears abstract, yet from afar it becomes more figurative. His colours are sharp, passionate, immediate, curious and captivating. They are not to be ignored. In fact, they are to be all consuming. By giving you his subjects up close and very personal, Henri Lamy takes you into yourself by taking you into his subjects. To see yourself in another, to identify yourself in another and to resonate with another is one of the great treasures of human existence. And Henri Lamy allows you to do just that.

Afterall, this is how Henri Lamy likes to communicate. In an interview with IvyBetty, he shared that by “looking we are communicating,” and by “looking” he means looking at people. Specifically, their faces. By recording faces, he says, “words become useless.” And it is a process he appears to revel in and find a deeper understanding to. For example, ‘Rebel’, which was inspired by a homeless man in San Francisco, Lamy admits to being fascinated by how this “old hat, blond dreadlocks and beard” existed “out of society.”

And Lamy, himself, is someone who appears to be drawn “out of society” to those who also live somewhat “out of society.” Whether it is at home, in Paris, at the 59 Rivoli, which is a squat for artists, the children’s orphanage in Sao Paulo, or the Pilipino poor of its countryside and city, Lamy actively searches for those moments and faces, which resonate and captivate him. And it is a mission that has driven him to take his flavor and flair out of his own society, and into Lyon, New York, Hong Kong, Beijing, Nanjing, Manila and now, Bangkok, Thailand.
 
HENRI LAMY’s Live Painting
Henri Lamy

Today, Henri Lamy is an internationally renowned artist, and I believe he has achieved this, because of his desire to bond with people, to give them a voice and centre stage. To show that regardless of any ethnic or socio-economic boundaries, there is a little bit of us, which can been seen and felt in another, and in the end, that is what makes us human. It is our ability to connect emotionally with a shared experience. And whether those moments are the feelings of joy as a child, the sense of hopelessness as an adult, or the muted pleasures as a lover; all in all, people are people, emotions are emotions, moments are moments and we are we. And that’s what Henri Lamy gives you, me and we.

Detailed Illustrations by BioWorkz

Ben Kwok


BioWorkZ a.k.a. Ben Kwok is an L.A. based graphic artist and illustrator. Born in Taiwan, raised in Los Angeles, art has always been a huge part of his life. When he could first use chopsticks, he was already doodling on whatever he could get his hands on. He loves complex hyper detailed artwork. To lose himself into the “flow” of drawing is about as good as it gets. He's very passionate about what he do, that’s why he continues doing it.

 
Highly detailed, rendered, polished illustration is what Ben Kwok strives for. He wants the artwork to pull the viewer in and hold them hostage. He requires the image to be initially striking, and when the viewer gets up close and personal, he wants the image to unfold into greater details while the viewer absorbs the intricacies and pays attention to little details. That's what he loves about illustrations and that's how he would like his artwork to be perceived.

Fantastic Wood Sculpture, Tom Eckert

works from the sculptor Tom Eckert
Tom Eckert 

Today we show you a few works by he great sulptor Tom Eckert from USA. He uses a wide variety of woodworking techniques in his sculptural pieces, including laminating, bending, carving, turning and painting. Their sculptures are formed entirely of wood and then painted.
 
He uses traditional processes to carve, construct, laminate and paint my pieces.  The woods he prefers working with are basswood, linden and limewood (all very similar) chosen because they carve and paint well and are very stable. Coming from a painting and drawing background, he is still interested in applying some of those techniques to his sculptures.   His choice of paint is mostly waterborne lacquer applied using both spray guns and brushes.
 
Forms carved to suggest cloth recur in many of his pieces.  By tradition, cloth has been widely used to conceal and shroud objects in practices ranging from advertising to church rituals.  Covered forms are often more evocative - with a sense of mystery absent from the uncovered object by itself.  He remembers in church one Lent, as a child, being mystified while gazing at the statues shrouded with purple cloth.
