on Sept 5“The best way I try to describe my work is a mixture of pop art with abstract/neo expressionism. I say this because I like the thought of taking ordinary and mundane things we see all the time and distorting, simplifying, and just plain making the piece say ‘Here I am!’ along with vibrant colors as well. I also embrace the beauty of imperfection too because I’m not a perfect person and I want my art to be an extension of myself.My influences are countless, but the ones that always sneak their way into my paintings are Picasso, Keith Haring, and Jean-Michel Basquiat. All were so prolific and never afraid to raise the bar or push the boundaries of art.If people are happy and inspired to create from what I do, then I’ve done my job as an artist.”
I love this idea SO MUCH.
Truth is Beauty by Marco Cochrane
One of the most eye-catching artworks at this year’s Burning Man festival was a 55-feet tall sculpture of a woman in a beautifully elegant pose. Truth is Beauty is the second of three sculptures in a series called The Bliss Project by artist Marco Cochrane. Constructed of welded steel rods and balls and covered in stainless steel mesh skin, the massive sculpture had interactive lighting effects that made it constantly change.
Digital painting virtuoso Ray Caesar will have a new exhibition opening April 19th at Corey Helford Circa in Culver City, California called “A Tainted Virtue.” The work centers around Caesar’s mysterious females and features 5 new works never shown in the United States.
