William Blakesley’s art is the epitome of Martha’s Vineyard, expressing the unique and intangible quality of the island and island life. The scenes are immediately familiar, conveying the tenor of the vineyard through different seasons and locations. The collaborative exhibitions at the Featherstone Center for the Arts and Martha’s Vineyard Museum provide an opportunity to see the breadth of his work across the decades from 1956 to 2012, honoring what would be the artist’s 101st birthday.

Variety is the name of the game for Blakesley’s art in terms of subject matter and media. While there are plenty of beach scenes, you’ll also see iconic images of the campground’s gingerbread cottages, Oak Bluffs Bandstand, crowds of day trippers past the Queen of the Island , people picking berries, children enjoying flying horses or letting off steam in the autumn leaves, scallops at work, fishermen on the Menemsha pier and sleds bundled up in the snow. There are close-up portraits that vary from studio nudes to performers from when the circus came here in the summer of 1964. There are also great pieces of birds on a white background and others treasures to discover.

Blakesley’s style is both abstract and simultaneously realistic. His fast, minimalist strokes convey the essence of each person or scene. He wrote of his art: “When I draw a subject I hope to become one with it – a child, a landscape, an animal – I like to be part of the good stuff. Excitement is d “trying to get even closer; discouragement is falling so far short. Incentive comes from the illusion of improvement; that the next experience will reach the goal. The rewards are too many to mention, but financial and honorifics are not on the list.

Blakesley’s style over the decades evolved somewhat backwards from that of many artists, beginning with an abstract bent and evolving into a tighter realism. Barbara, Blakesley’s daughter, whose collection makes up the shows, says: “He had the ability to capture a person in just a few lines. I’ve seen him do it many times, catching people at whatever they were doing or thinking at the time. He was very quick.

Perhaps one of the reasons for the wide variety of scenes in the vineyard is that he always traveled with his sketchbook. His daughter recalls: “He took it everywhere we went – ​​restaurants, concerts, on the street, on the beach. He seemed to constantly need to draw. I remember being pissed off as a kid at a concert and you could hear his felt scratching when I tried to listen to a piece of classical music.

The exhibits also reflect Blakesley’s ability to work in a variety of mediums, drawing in pen and painting in watercolour, acrylic or tempera. He also created superb serigraphs, a printing technique in which the image is made directly on screen and then printed. Blakesley rarely used oil paints because he worked quickly and disliked the time they took to dry. His powerful use of color unites art, regardless of medium or image. Blakesley’s palette animates each piece so that both exposures are a visual bonus.

Born in 1921, Blakesley grew up in Columbus, Ohio. He started his habit of drawing or painting daily at a young age, after being encouraged by his first grade teacher to pursue his talent. Blakesley served in World War II and later taught art, including at Florida State University and Muskingum College. Blakesley landed on the vineyard in 1955. Initially he and his first wife worked as stay-at-home parents at West Tisbury Youth Hostel before building their home in 1958. Later the Blakesleys taught art in elementary schools on the island. He opened a gallery on Circuit Avenue in Oak Bluffs, ran it for many years, then moved to Montgomery Square in the campground after retiring and moving to the island full-time.

Blakesley believed that everyone should be able to afford art. Barbara says, “When he had his studio near the campground, he had a sign that said, ‘By appointment or by chance’, and people could just come in and buy pieces while he was making them. He wanted to document the Vineyard and its inhabitants and the times. He tried to keep his prices very low and to make the job accessible to everyone.

“I want old friends, people who knew him, as well as newcomers to the vineyard, to have the chance to see how the island has changed over these 50 to 60 years, as well as how his style changed.”

Blakesley wrote, “If my work has any purpose, it’s the eternal of trying to maintain a positive attitude in a seemingly indifferent world – the struggle is everything. Despair, despair, etc. seem obvious or too easy. The negative does not exist as art.

And his art speaks to the joy and beauty of daily life on the island.

“The Art of William Blakesley: A Retrospective” at the Featherstone Center for the Art runs through October 2. “The Art of William Blakesley” at Martha’s Vineyard Museum runs until November 3.

Entrepreneur Martin Mobarak generated great controversy and outrage in the art world internationally. The reason? He set fire to the work Sinister phantasmons by mexican artist Frida Kahlo to turn it into NTF. The piece was estimated at $10 millionon 200 million Mexican pesosand now it’s just a handful of ashes.

The fire took place during a private event at the businessman’s residence, located in Miami, Florida. Mobarak took the Sinister ghosts reaching into a sleeve, removed the frame that protected her and placed her in a glass of dry ice. Immediately afterwards, the flames were lit. As the work burned, to the applause of those present, the song “Cielito Lindo” started playing, performed by live mariachis.

The big party, which included a fashion show and other performances, welcomed art collectors, designers, digital artists and charity representatives. Although it took place on July 30, footage of the event began circulating just days ago, sparking heated controversy.

“Transforming this work into NFT is the way we can immortalize the works and her life, we bridge the gap between traditional art and new art, which is digital art (…) Frida was a person who loved to give This is something that will generate controversy, with this we can ensure the success of this project,” the businessman said in an interview.

Is Frida Kahlo’s drawing worth more in NFT than in physics?

On the Frida.nft site, Martin Mobarak explains that he bought the piece for 10 million dollars in 2015 at the Mary Anne Martin gallery. Sinister Ghosts is a drawing made by Frida Kahlo in 1944 in her diary. On the page, you can find documents such as the certificate of authenticity and the work study, which guarantee its legitimacy.

For his project, he digitized the work front and back in PNG format, to maintain as much fidelity as possible. Subsequently, he converted the file to NFT and generated 10,000 coins of block chain code, each with a unique content record that guarantees its authenticity.

By burning the drawing in public, it was shown that it now only exists in the virtual world. “As the Phoenix rises from its ashes, art rises again into eternity,” Mobarak told Exeleon. Magazine.

After learning that businessman Martin Mobarak had cremated a work valued at $10 million to market it as cryptographic art, Mexico’s National Institute of Fine Arts launched an investigation into “deliberate destruction of ‘an artistic monument’

The National Institute of Fine Arts, Arts and Literature of Mexico said it was investigating and gathering “all the necessary information, in order to establish with certainty” what happened to the work.

Within the Mexican legal framework, there is a decree by which the whole of Kahlo’s work has been declared an artistic monument and, in a statement reproduced by local media, the entity recalled that in Mexico “the deliberate destruction of an artistic monument constitutes a crime in terms of the Federal Law on Archaeological, Artistic and Historic Monuments and Areas”.

However, the businessman chose to defend himself by arguing that thanks to the fact of having burned the drawing, the national heritage will be enriched. According to his estimates, NFTs will be purchased using ETH (Ethreum), a cryptocurrency worth $1,361, and each NFT will be sold for 3 ETH, raising more than around $40 million.

If the accounts were correct, some institutions could benefit from this action, such as the Frida Kahlo House Museum, the Palace of Fine Arts and the National School of Plastic Arts. However, the National Institute of Fine Arts and Literature of Mexico denied the possibility of these public institutions receiving any donation from said collector and recalled that the Bank of Mexico is a trustee of the Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo Museum Trust, “in its capacity as owner of the patrimonial rights of the works”.

In the same text, the institute dependent on the Mexican government specifies that it “will comply with what is established” under the terms of the Federal Law on Monuments and Archaeological, Artistic and Historical Zones (Lfmzaah), its regulations and the Decree “by whom is declared an artistic monument all the work of the Mexican artist Frida Kahlo Calderón”. This protected set includes the easel work, the graphic work, the engravings and the technical documents owned by the nation or individuals, published in the Official Journal of the Federation of July 18, 1984.

‘Sinister Ghosts’ (1944) by artist Frida Kahlo, worth $10 million (Photo: screenshot/Frida.nft)

Mobarak purchased the 2015 image from New York’s Mary Anne Martin Gallery. He admits that the engraving of the drawing is a “strong” part and that “it can be misunderstood”, but for him it is a process to lead the artist to an “immortalisation”, “Burning the work will help to create the funds,” said the founder, who believes that if the artist knew the destination of the funds, he would have told him to “burn everything”. Mobarak set fire to the drawing during an event organized on the 30 July in Miami and, from its website, invites the public to buy what it says is the “most historic NFT in existence” in November.

An allusive work depicting the endless portal to the universe won the 2022 Lake Art Prize.

Winning Lake Macquarie artist Braddon Snape said the artwork, which was cleverly crafted by inflating metal, took a decade to complete.

“I’ve been developing puffy artwork for almost ten years now and I’ve really been able to hone my craft during the closures where I’ve added the aspect of light into the artwork,” Braddon said.

“The work of art is made of three stainless steel parts, which are inflated by cold air with a lot of pressure to cause it to explode and deform.”

There is a particular personal satisfaction [in winning] because I’m a Lake Macquarie born person, so I feel like people have finally recognized who I am in where I’m from.

The theme of the competition, the vessel: contained within and moving between, invited artists to explore the literal and lateral translations of a vessel.

Judge Brett Adlington said Snape’s allusive object stood out among a collection of high-caliber artwork.

“It was a very imposing piece,” Mr Adlington said.

“It has a great play of light because the object is dark space, so it uses light to encompass an area larger than itself and for us it really spoke to this theme of a ship of a truly unique way.”

Rogue’s work was exhibited Friday night at the Museum of Art and Culture (MAC), Yapang, alongside 65 other finalists for the $25,000 Lake Art Prize, one of the richest art prizes of the NSW region.

390 works participated in the competition.

Courtney Wagner, curator and operations coordinator for the MAC, yapang, said she was blown away by the variety and caliber of artists.

“We received applications from across Australia, from established and emerging artists,” she said.

“I want to congratulate not only Braddon Snape, but all of the artists who participated in their work, and especially those who were shortlisted as finalists.

“As well as purchasing Snape’s work, we also purchased highly regarded artist Vipoo Srivilasa’s ceramic sculpture of a SERPENT I figure.”

Three other artists were highly praised for their work, including Liss Finney for her sculptural installation Adventures to far off places, Michael Brown for her painting Ocean eyes and Laura Nolan for her sculpture Resting stillness.

The works will remain on display until Sunday, December 11, 2022.

A collection of works by Filipino painter and printmaker Romeo Villalva Tabuena is on display at Charlie’s Art Gallery in Italia Restaurant, Brgy. Mandalagan, Bacolod City from September 21.

Tabuena was born in Iloilo City but moved to San Miguel de Allende, Mexico in 1955. However, he always retained his Filipino nationality.

He majored in painting at the University of the Philippines and studied architecture at the Mapua Institute of Technology in Manila. He continued his training by studying with the American artist Will Barnet at the Art Students League in New York in 1952 and with Henri Goetz at the Académie de la Grande Chaumière in Paris in 1954.

Tabuena’s work typically consists of figures that are assembled from restrained, monochromatic outlines despite his use of a wide variety of subjects and materials. His aesthetic is often inspired by cubism, imposing fractal-like geometric patterns on recognizable geometric subjects.

While his earlier works retain a sense of translucency and flowing form and are frequently rendered in jewel-toned colors and interlocking forms influenced by Cubism, those of his later “Mexican” period are more opaque and have a geometric quality. stylized which seems to intersect the works. of fellow Filipino artist Hernando Ocampo and the aesthetics of Mexican muralists.

By this time in his career, Tabuena had moved away from austere landscapes and pure modernism, and his figures had taken on a more naturalistic rendering and emotional intimacy.

Many honors have been bestowed on Tabuena for his service, including the 2007 Philippine Presidential Merit Award. He attended his eighth biennial in Sao Paulo, Brazil as the official representative of the Philippines in 1965.

Tabuena died on October 15, 2015 in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico.

The collection of his works is presented by Charlie’s Art Gallery, in cooperation with Galeria Lienzo.*

EAST LIVERPOOL, Ohio (WKBN) — It’s not the monster mash, it’s the monster mural along the side of the Quality Stamp Office Supplies and Equipment building in East Liverpool.

“I came up with the idea of ​​having a contest where kids could submit drawings of monsters and I’d paint the best ones on the wall,” said Columbiana County Cove Rage artist Craig Wetzel.

Artist Craig Wetzel received nearly 150 designs in total. He chose the best and will paint 21 in total.

“Some of them were because they were so original and unique that I had no choice and some were because they didn’t fit well into the composition,” Wetzel said.

One of the performers is Joy Boso from the Beaver Local School District.

“I drew it and it has spikes and a long tail,” Boso said.

“I really liked it because I like squishy-squishy and that’s what I tried to do,” said East Liverpool School District pupil Harlo Burcham.

Wetzel takes 6 hours a day to paint and thinks it will take him about a week to complete the mural.

But he has set rules for when he works:

  1. Clean and disease-free children welcome
  2. No stupid questions
  3. Fools should stay on the sidewalk
  4. Respect all the rules

“Well, you have to have rules, when you do something and I can’t paint the mural here and answer stupid questions or have people bother me. So we have to set some parameters,” Wetzel said .

Wetzel would like to do more murals for the other monsters.

A RAW sculpture that archaeologists feared was graffiti vandalism has turned out to be an ancient work of art.

The huge phallus was found chiselled into the rock alongside 15,000 other images.

Huge spotted phallus carved into cave wall found to be 5,000 years oldCredit: provided

Experts first thought that the massive male member was the work of modern-day evildoers.

But they now estimate the sculpture to be around 5,000 years old.

The prominent penis is part of the Marra Wonga site in Australia.

Thousands of carvings in an Outback rock shelter are the work of ancient Aboriginal artists.

Many images tell the Star Dreaming story of the Seven Sisters, where a shapeshifter transforms into a boomerang-throwing phallus.

Professor Paul Tacon, of Griffith University, cataloged the art.

He said: “In the story, the sisters are pursued by a powerful ancestral being known as Wattanuri, who is often associated with the constellation of Orion.

“At one point he goes underground and emerges as a giant penis and throws boomerangs at the sisters, which we see clearly illustrated in this panel.”

Other artwork inside the cave, such as six-toed feet, shows that it was used to tell dream stories.

Experts used lasers and drones to document the site and say it may have been a teaching space.

Professor Tacon told the Australian Archeology journal: ‘There is no other site in Australia that features art like this telling the story from cover to cover.

Denver artist and entrepreneur Clarissa Fierro turns her love for cultural traditions into commercial success by sharing Mexican art with the community.

DENVER — Clarissa Fierro had no intention of selling her work.

But the Colorado resident realized she could help her legacy thrive by preserving the past through her artwork.

Fierro’s art is presented and sold at Hijos del Sol inside the Latino Cultural Arts Center. The store offers handmade Latino artisan products that preserve Mexican history and heritage.

“I always focus my work on my Mexican art,” she said. “Yes, the traditions and all that we have to share with the world.”

One of the traditional techniques used by Fierro is called filigrana in papél or quilling. She starts with tiny strips of colored paper, which are rolled up tightly and then glued together to create a design.

With every strip of paper and every intricate step, Fierro does his part to keep Mexican culture alive.

“I think it’s my duty as a Mexican and as a Latina to share this with more people because I don’t want this beautiful art to die,” Fierro said. “And we can’t let these beautiful things die with us.”

Adrianna Abarca is the owner of Hijos del Sol, where Fierro’s works are for sale.

“I think it is essential to honor the legacies of the different cultures of Latin America and the best way to do this is to buy the works of the artisans who have carried on these traditions through the decades through the centuries”, she said. “Their abilities and their creativity, their expertise in their fields, it’s very impressive.”

Fierro said she considers her art hanging in the store’s art gallery a huge achievement.

“I never thought something I created with my hands would be in such a beautiful place in a gallery and that’s a really big support I have here,” she said.

You can find Fierro’s works at the Hijos del Sol gallery on West 8th Avenue. The gallery owner said he is always looking for more artists to exhibit in the space.

Johannes’ Instagram handle has over 1.28 lakh followers.

Artists are a boon to humanity. They create stunning works of art and make us realize how important it is to understand the beauty of life. The work of Italian artist Johannes Stoetter representing 5 women painted on the body in the form of a frog is going viral on social networks.

Johannes’ works are mostly inspired by wildlife photography and he showcases his talent by making people think his art is photography. The hyper-realistic body painting of 5 women and their transformation into frogs has been done so brilliantly that it serves as an optical illusion for the viewer. At first glance it appears that there are no humans involved and it is indeed a photograph. However, upon closer inspection, you find the first female, whose body acts as the centerpiece of the frog.

Top showsha video

Going into more detail, two other women to his left and right highlight the edges, eyes and forearms of the frog. The lower body and the legs are made up of two people bent on the knees and the head folded behind the first woman. This is how the five women were used to stage a frog sitting on a leaf.

The body paint details to make her look like a frog are so finely executed that it is very difficult to tell the difference between the woman and the whole frog. Not only is the body painted in detail but the poses are perfect for understanding the difference between this art and an original photograph of a frog of the same color.

UNIVERSITY of Reading climate stripes on display at an art exhibition in London.

Glass artist Cathryn Shilling has taken her sculptures on tour as she seeks to raise awareness of global warming.

His collection, titled The Path We Follow, was recently exhibited at the British Glass Biennale in Stourbridge in the West Midlands.

It features a mosaic of stripes, as well as several glass vessels adorning the design.

Cathryn said: “The increase in temperature change across Europe using observed data can be visualized in many ways, but there is no doubt that we are on a dangerous path.

“This installation is in two parts. A mosaic visualizes temperature change across Europe over the 50 years from 1975 to 2020.

“The ships represent an assemblage of European nations, each displaying their own increase in temperature change over 80 years.

“Only by acting now and working together can we chart a new temperature trajectory towards a sustainable future.”

Cathryn was one of 103 artists selected from 223 applicants to showcase the most diverse and outstanding glass art made in the UK over the past three years.

The stripes will be featured in VETRO II: Exploring Venetian Influence at London Glassblowing in Bermondsey Street from October 7-29.

The exhibition is set to take place after the Reading Climate Festival, where the stripes will once again be on display.

From September 24 to October 4, the week-long program of free in-person and online events to encourage positive action against climate change.

They have featured publicly on the main stage at Reading Festival, on Reading FC’s home and away kits this year and on badges worn by US senators.
