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]

"Believers" acrylic painting by Fernando Carpaneda
"I don't like to be treated special just because I'm an artist. I prefer still drinking "Pabst Blue Ribbon" than drink "Champagne". Money and fame doesn't mean anything to me."

ABSTRACT IN COOL BLUE
Painting: Acrylic on Wood
Size: 36 H x 36 W x 2 inches
I have always loved the landscapes and abstractions by Canadian "Group of Seven" painter Lawren Harris and, an independent painter Richard Billmeier, who is also Canadian. Harris's scenes of the Canadian north could cool the Mojave desert. Billmeier's landscapes with their magnetic horizon lines, blocky colours and visual intrigue ask me to engage again and again. Some of Billmeier's landcapes in orange could melt a... [more]

ABOUT THE COVER – LYLE REXER
Photograph Mag, Sept/Oct Issue
Like a fault line in the surface of appearances, photo collage opens up in periods of social stress and political obfuscation. In the 1880s, the playful cut and paste of Victorian albums betrayed a skepticism about photography’s ability to sustain memory and maintain the connection to a tradition that technology was rapidly effacing.
In the 1920s and ‘30s, collage mobilized images against themselves, recombining th... [more]

Since the dawn of ancient civilizations, inspiration has been a divine matter. The artist's ability to create was originally believed to come from the gods or was, perhaps, thought to be whispered in the wind. Centuries in, it became understood that everything around us was food for imagination, and that artistic magic was not just in the wind, but could be whispered from one of us to another.

A new Clear Painting is added to the set.
The Clear Paintings, dating to 2004, are the first that I'm aware of in the history of art.
While I scratch away on two new bronzes, and a few more abstract paintings with color as content, it seemed right to go forward with a couple more clears. Anyone familiar with art history will probably be able to catch the drift to the clears, and able to place them in the genre. They, in part, re-validate post-... [more]
They call it “Marbs.” Some of them do, anyway—not the real deal money; not 'Tony' and 'Mel' Banderas-Griffiths, whose beach-front palace’s lease, quite tragically, outlived their marriage—but the ones who are there for an earthier breed of bacchanal: the drunks, the San Tropez tanners, the motor-mouthed swimsuit babes, the rutting Croyden bucks—and so on, and so forth. Breasts as buoyant as puppies; pectorals as tight as spinster's mouths: the strip on Puerto... [more]
I am a new Abstract Artist. I am working with textured Paints, Metallics, Metal, Pumice Gels and Fabric to create a quirky and eccentric new look to Art. Aesthetic in taste, and non conventional, I like thinking out if the box. This makes my Art Pieces, unique, quirky, almost spiritually different to mainstream, in images and portraits. I like to get people thinking about what they see.
The lights and and Sun reflections in the paintings, changes the pictures also. Conveying differ... [more]
