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 plasticity and abi... [more]
Amir H. Fallah’s portraits resemble the site of an archaeological dig. When Howard Carter discovered King Tut’s tomb, the young pharaoh’s body was wrapped in shrouds with his material possessions painstakingly arranged around him. Likewise, Fallah incorporates everyday objects from a subject’s home into ornate, unconventional portraits that obscure the figure’s face, finding profound connections in the seemingly mundane and charm in the ugly. It’s not coincidental t... [more]

Michael and Yhelena Hall’s thought-provoking installation at The Mission in Chicago does more than draw attention to the environment. This show reveals practical solutions to contemporary problems.

With the age of the artists ranging from the mature seventies to the youthful twenties, the work is bound to be wildly diversified; from the skilled and honed creativity of one generation to the enthusiastic optimism of another, with all sharing a dedication to, and love of, the arts, each exploring and de...

I dropped off a couple of my favorite paintings at Marta Stafford Fine Art yesterday. Before I became an artist, I don’t think I realized what a personal process creating art can be. I certainly couldn’t appreciate the attachment an artist might feel to some of his/her works – the attachment I’m feeling now. Some pieces are harder than others to let go. I suppose these difficult-to-release pieces are those that I find comfort in. They seem (to me) to be whole, complete, and dee... [more]

It is BHC's mission to counter poverty and homelessness through an affordable and supportive housing model that now encompasses seven apartment buildings in West Harlem and Upper... [more]

...fabrics were stuffed and sewn into various sizes of balls and attached to a sphere shape. An indentation was made into this shape, lined with doll hair and accented with hot pink fuzzy pipe cleaners with a pink silk rose to suggest female genitalia.
