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]

To deal with art and approaching it are the first basic steps that every artist in his research must address.
To approach the various forms of artistic expression and to bring it into line for us, may often be a difficult but necessary challenge to us, when we place ourselves in front of an collective exhibition, in which different artists and their different visual languages interact, feel and live art together. The artwork reflects the individual expression of a general feeling, is influence... [more]

On the Front Lines
by Jillian Russo | June 9, 2015
Since the passage of the GI Bill during World War II, thousands of veterans have studied at the Art Students League of New York. Returning World War II veterans rejuvenated the League, making it a site of experimentation and an incubator for postwar artists. The GI Bill made an art education accessible to those who might not otherwise have become engaged in the field, and the influx of students strengthened an ambitious community.... [more]
The night is thick with heat and windless humidity. I am restless and stimulated, my body temperature rising in the dark room as I stare at and am consumed by an extraordinary Macri image: Drop Curtain. I have no idea what Macri intends by this image, his title notwithstanding, but I mean to write what it means to me because I cannot quench the fire in my bones until I do so. We don’t need to know what an artist “meant” in order to understand what the art means to us, and it... [more]
Art and object are at a crossroads, the latter pressing upon the former in unapologetic terms. With these blurry borders, the object—once just a thing in the world, a commodity, really—is now widely considered art object par excellence, meaningful in its quotidian thingness, its ontological being now revelatory. That we’ve arrived at a juncture where the object now speaks is interesting to think through in terms of the potential epistemological offshoots. For instance, what know... [more]
What is your name?My name is Rene Capone but sometimes people call me “Hedgehog Boy” or “Zebra Boy.” These names go with the characters I create in my artwork.
If a group, who is in the group and what are their roles?The only group I belong to is a pop up gallery space I run from time to time. The name of the gallery changes depending on where we are. I’m the art and I try very hard create fun events for artists to show off the very best of themselves. Right now I’m doing... [more]

Maybe posting this wanted poster will help me out.
