What an amazing year 2014 has been! I've met some wonderful artists through Artmajeur and feel so lucky to be part of such a talented and supportive network of established and emerging artists.

Creating Art: The Importance of Symmetry and Sense Thumbnail

Creating Art: The Importance of Symmetry and Sense
Dec 5, 2014 Article by Hana Szarowski Follow Hana Szarowski!

Friend of mine asked me, what I consider important when working on my artworks, talking about technique. I prefer don't limit one's self by school learned techniques, use sences and intuition and technique comes out itself. I find out that knowledge comes with creativity, but also experience, sometimes such a kind of experience one wouldn't expect, which brings me to, what I've learned from the ballet and music. Ballet is one of the most remarkable ways of expressing emotions and feelings. I al... Read More »

Vincent Price Art Museum, at East Los Angeles College.
Dec 4, 2014 Blog by David Maggard Follow David Maggard!

I visited the VPAM at East LA College this summer. WOW! It is a gemstone waiting for Los Angeles to really discover it. At the end of Metro's Gold line, it is a short few blocks to walk to this treasure. Yale graduate Vincent Price left some of his art collection to this school, starting with donating about 90 works. When living Vincent Price would visit this college, with a piece or two from his collection. His hopes were to inspire art students. Eventually the Prices donated approx 2000 pieces... Read More »

Dec 1, 2014 Blog by Rupert Cefai Follow Rupert Cefai!

Contrary to a generally held view, I think that painting is not in any direct sense a means of communication or a means of self-expression. When you are painting you are trying to discover, to uncover, to reveal. I sometimes think of the activity of painting as a kind of archaeology - an archaeology of the spirit. - Louis le Brocquy   Painting - Human Image, 1996 - Louis le Brocquy Read More »

First, I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving Day and didn't eat too much turkey! Now that its over, we are heading rapidly to Christmas. I didn't know the color that I added to the stocking would go over as well as it has. Mirror Art Stocking have been requested a great deal for the last couple of months. I created the Stocking two years ago, and it didn't get much notice. Since the Stocking has become so requested, I thought it would be nice to offer it on Back Friday at $50.00 instead of th...

About time, night and series 'On the Ground'
Nov 17, 2014 Article by Hana Szarowski Follow Hana Szarowski!

Time is a curious thing, isn't it? Some dream about past, their own or times, what they think were better. Some struggle for future, imagining what should happen, dreaming about how it should be. And than there is the mysterious now. The moment some love and some hate, maybe because they lost in past, what they loved, or they are angry at them selves, that the so expectet and wanted future didn't happen by itself.  But what with the now. The time when your mind is free from all of those th... Read More »
