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]
As we flock around her right after our final MA Visual Arts First Year Juries and I request some time for an interview as directed by my professor Sir Quddus Mirza (Editor of ArtNow), there is a yes and a no in the answer that I get. The word enigmatic is a constant in all the published material that I’ve read about Sumaya Durrani in my humble quest to know a bit about her and we, the visual arts Master's students frozen in the space of her eloquence, are proof that it’s true.

.I like the bright colors on the sides of the painting...gives it punch. I think this picture suits our time...lots of images tumbling at us at the same time....like flipping channels on the tv or surfing the internet...we see images and colors fly by us at a high speed. The size of this painting is 32 inches x 40 inches. Medium is Holbein and Daniel Smith watercolor on Caslon p... [more]
I'm truly grateful for this opportunity. Also, I do feel this is the greatest exhibition of my drawings. I created a ink drawing called "North Korea" that became a digital drawing called "Time". Soon after "Time" was created, ArtonFashion transformed it into a wearable work of art. It is truly a statement peice! What I find most amazing about this work of art, The Ambassador wore it in support of an American artist trying to make a difference. My ink and digital drawing are political statement... [more]
I encounter a deeper awareness of my ego voice. The voice itself sounds louder, loud enough for me to be able to differentiate it from my higher self aspects, and exaggerated enough so I take notice of it's yearning in a more compassionate and understanding way. The overall sense is that my ego is not me.
But. It is me. It is the part of me that is always looking for more. I decide to give my ego more love forever.
I go inside to find it. I can see it in plain sight, sitting behind a desk lo... [more]
Before I fall asleep I ask them to show me the feeling of oneness energy.
In the morning, I find myself alone. The voices that I usually hear in my head - angels, spirit guides and galactic friends - are not speaking to me. The visions I am used to having of wondrous and colourful light beings are gone.
I call out to them, worried and impatient. I demand to know why they have left me to fend for myself.
They say the energy of oneness is one voice. It is them within me. It is my voice.
Here is my mandala in progress. It shows the circular set of scales that I drew in the Lady Justice redepiction, but looking down from the top. The nest woven around it has this poem that I wrote, that I thought might be fun to share: Take a BreathTake a breath with each of the children sleeping upstairs. Take one with each of the neighborswho are getting ready for work. She is brushing her teeth.He is fixing coffee. Somewhere on this street, someone is coughing. Take a breath with him. Somew...

By David Rosenberg

When Richard Tuschman—known for the detailed dioramas he creates and photographs—visited his wife’s hometown of Krakow, Poland, in 2011, he knew he’d found the setting for his next project. “Once Upon a Time in Kazimierz” follows a Jewish family in 1930s Poland over 17 images. The work is presented in a sequence, but Tuschman said that he wants view... [more]
In writing this article, I first found myself repeating what I wrote last year. I guess I really want you to understand how much I love being amongst fellow artists, art enthusiasts, and art. So instead of reiterating my love of Art Basel Miami, I am here to tell you which of the art I would want to rip off the wall and take home with me …AND to take you on a journey to the party splendor that glows within Art Basel Miami.
In this concentrated sea of art, there is a hope that just around t... [more]

STUDIO VISIT ; NADIA KHAWAJA
In 1932 sculptor Janet De Coux apprenticed with James Earle Fraser. In a letter from Fraser to his former assistant, he comments on her studio “Seeing your studio and its grand light and very good proportions makes me feel like building one like it here. I particularly like the fact that you had only a few things in it. You really can see and walk around each piece.
Your light seems to me perfect…”
Coming back from Nadia Kh... [more]

“Consequently while making the preliminary foray in to the issue some of the broader predicaments that came to mind were: what constitutes the physical geography of photography today? How are the images from Pakistan embedded in different social, cultural and historical conditions? And what does the experience reveal about the global condition of photography, and how does that (if at all) change our experience of ‘place’?”

“I stretch an idea as much as I can, explore all corners of possibilities until the point that there is nothing new left in it for me to experience, it is only then that I move on,” the artist replies to my query on the limits of an idea.
I’m at Imran Channa’s studio and absorbed in an exchange of tales. It is an amiable bachelor pad in Model Town with a comfortable sitting area in the center and a studio/workspace, kitchen and bedroom surrounding... [more]
