ROMANOVA SVETLANA-ART  
by
3/31/20 Posted 3/5/09

         Hello frends! I am an artist. My roots take place in St.Petersburg, which has great architecture, culture and history that influenced me once and forever. Today, in the times of technical progress, mass production and new artificial materials I search for inspiration in the foundation of the Arts - old Russian Orthodox icons, Renaissance and folk cultures. I seek out look for new shapes and images within my themes using different materials, but my favorite is glass for its plasticit... [more]

It's (OFF)icelle: FIAC Is Cool   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3
by
at FIAC October 22nd - October 26th
Posted 10/23/14

There's something new happening at FIAC this year. Not exactly the quickest to catch on to a trend, the Parisian art fair has created its own satellite, with a focus on introducing new art and artists from the international scene through a showcase of 68 galleries from 14 countries. Judged by a selection panel of art historians and curators, the tangential fair's emphasis is on supporting the underdog—not only the up-and-comings, but also "outsiders" and artists who have been overlooked h...

5 Zine Producers You Need to Know   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3
by
Posted 10/22/14

Zines—short run and independently produced miniature magazines—have been a staple tool in various underground communities for decades. While traces of the zine aesthetic can be followed back throughout history, the true imagery of the contemporary zine was fathered back in the 1980s with punk rock culture being the topic of choice. Early punks would take their Xeroxed sketches, photos, literary musings—and whatever else their bleeding hearts desired—and compile them into sma... [more]

Frieze Flashback: How To Do An Art Party at Home   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3

Good evening, art-appreciators! Please pull up a Beuysian chair, with a heap of fat on it, because I have something to ask you: Had a good Frieze, did you, reader? Drank some complimentary champagne? Saw at least one instance of 'is this art'? Hung out at Selfridges Hotel, in a dress with spaghetti straps? Wore a black smock instead—normcore style? Said the words "art market," and didn't even flinch at how serious you were about it? Listened, once, "ironically," to "Anaconda" by Nicki Minaj a... [more]

30 Years of The Turner Prize: 10 Most Notorious Entries  
by
Duncan Campbell, Ciara Phillips, James Richards, Tris Vonna-Michell at Tate Britain 10/19/14 Posted 10/19/14

It's Turner Prize time again. Britain’s most hated art award celebrates its 30th year this year. What has it achieved in over three decades? For one thing – its brought contemporary British art to the public attention – mostly to be lampooned by the tabloids. Who can forget headlines surrounding Tracey Emin’s winning entry My Bed (dubbed ‘My Turd’ by Private Eye) or the fury roused by Damien Hirst’s formaldehyde tiger shark entry in 1992? The “national joke” has provoked walk outs and protests (the Stuckist... [more]

George Grosz' Grotesque Humanity   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3

George Grosz at Highgate Gallery October 11th - November 9th
Posted 10/16/14

Every bit as run-down as I remember it, the escalator at the tube station ejects me onto the dull evening streets of Archway. In the queue for the cash machine, a flower-seller smiles and asks me to move aside so he can manoeuvre his heavy but empty trolley closer to the curb. As I insert my card, in the light coming from the doors of the bar on the corner, three men with the yellow-grey skin of a longtime drinker bicker and spit. They give me looks as I pass. From within comes the lilting sound of a... [more]

Frieze Previews: Jérôme Bel's Inflammatory Disabled Theatre Makes Its London Debut   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3

at Frieze London October 15th - October 18th
Posted 10/12/14

It seems like this year, perhaps influenced by the performance series 14 Rooms that took place at Art Basel a few months ago, Frieze has taken a performative turn. Many of its special projects incorporate live shows, and a new section called Frieze Live will introduce performance-based works and reenactments of historical performances at the fair itself. For example, the Japanese duo United Brothers will offer the visitors a soup made of vegetables grown in the region of Fukushima’s 2011 nuc... [more]

Ruins Porn: The Art of Urban Decay  
by
10/5/14 Posted 10/14/14

When Matthew Christopher said "ruins porn" at his recent "Abandoned America: The Age of Consequences" Preservation Austin talk, sponsored by Suzanne Deal Booth, I was so guilty of it I blushed. I've had a penchant for the urban decay aesthetic for as long as I can recall. Fortunately I live downtown in a city that is constantly undergoing major construction and rapid population growth, so decomposing eye candy is part of my daily environment. Above is a snapshot I took of broken windows in my... [more]

Update October 6, 2014: In a further twist to the RP4 tale, Instagram has started to dump previous images posted by the artist (including the ones we had linked to here, now obsolete). The reasons behind these mysterious recent movements on the (at the time of writing) still active account are unclear: a warning from the Instagram authorities? Or a classic Prince joke? In his latest post, two women are captured mid-conversation on a sofa. Above them hangs the infamous Untitled (Cowboy), the artist's first... [more]

The Other Side of Fashion Week

Congrats to my very talented friends, Salome Oggenfuss and Sandra Isacsson and their crew for their "The Other Side Of Fashion Week" documentary - a compassionate, fascinating, and amusing exploration of the offbeat, outerskirts side of Fashion Week. I've shot fashion week at Bryant Park in NYC before and always found some of the most interesting stories on the sidelines, with the quirky photographers. In a great spotlight on this film in Dazed and Confused Magazine, the fashion photographers... [more]

Art from Music <----> Music from Art  
by
9/29/14 Posted 10/14/14

...In thinking about the act of choreography, the concept of visualizing music is one that has inspired my work - particularly this past year, in my paintings which illustrate personal responses to different songs. For example, my print above is a metaphorical mashup of Prince and Bob Dylan, combining lyrics and concepts from both artists. There is an interesting quote from Balanchine on Ballet Austin's site about making art from music: "Music like Stravinsky’s cannot be illustrated; one... [more]

Drawing tattoos is becoming a popular hobby and more artists realize that drawing these tattoos can earn them enough money.

Many artists get inspiration by looking at other existing tattoos in shops, and also observing what other artists have done with tattoo body art. Fast sketching is favorite with many artists, and random ideas can be developed into some top sketches. Today, we have numerous tattoo art par... [more]
