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]

After to be already transferred on canvases, lithographic prints and aluminium my "Lacer/actions" artworks were transformed in silk textiles designs thanks to collaboration of Bruno Boggia Disegni (Como, Italy) who...

New York based photographer Eric Chakeen (a former assistant to Ryan McGinley) shared some of his shots from his latest project, And Away They Go, which documents the life at the Del Mar racetrack—a place Chakeen visited often growing up in San Diego. Here, the photographer gives ArtSlant his personal perspective on the complex social atmosphere at one of California's most historic sports venues.
The Del Mar racetrack opened in 1937. It was a huge part of Hollywood in its halcyon days. Lucille Ball, Frank Sinatra, and Bing Crosby were frequent vi... [more]
I remember when I first moved to Vancouver, and told people I was from Toronto, the venom and animosity for my hometown astonished me. Many of the people who were so vehemently hateful of Toronto and had never been there before, I was told. I found this astonishing, because in the 28 years I lived in Toronto, I'd never heard a single person bash Vancouver. If anything, people from Toronto spoke highly of Vancouver—the phenomenal beauty of British Columbia, the number of great artists Vancouve... [more]
An empty wall to fill but on a tight budget? Looking for an original Christmas gift? Or are you just an avid bargain hunter? A semi-abstract print by Jaap Hillenius could be just the ticket for you. Price: somewhere between 175 and 250 euro—and that’s including the frame. If you like large formats, the reclining nude by Hans van der Ham costing 450 euro is an option. And at 175 euro a diptych by Bert Loerakker is a good deal—especially if you take into account the original price of... [more]

People familiar with Adamo Macri’s portraits may well experience an aesthetic shock to see a picture of the artist with his eyes wide open. So many of his self-portraits depict the eyes averted, lowered, askance, or rarely looking directly at the viewer that I was taken aback by a recent picture, entitled Damo, 2013. There are a few other pictures in his Facebook oeuvre wherein the artist opens his eyes and stares out of the canvas, Self-Portrait, 2013, for example, but that is... [more]
Anastasia Samoylova does not go out into summer fields when she begins a new work of landscape photography. She goes online, haunting public domain photosites for images of picturesque landscapes: sunsets, waterfalls, forests, oceans, and flowers. Despite the seductive vistas each calendar image portrays, they are so common they become redundant. “I’m almost monumentalizing them in my installations,” Samoylova said during a recent (Skyped) studio visit, “otherwise they wou...
