Changing Faces

Posted in ART, ART HISTORY, ART VIDEOS with tags , , on July 28, 2010 by echostains

Inspired by Lesliepaints (and who wouldn’t be), I thought it might be fun to look at some self portraits of artists.  I shall start a new category for this in the future and look at the artists individually.   In the meanwhile, lets get a taste of the ever changing face of the artist by watching this short video.  See how many famous artists you can spot correctly in this wonderful video:)

A Hand in Art

Posted in ART, ART VIDEOS with tags , , , on June 7, 2010 by echostains

I came across this video about  the art of hand painting quite a while ago.  I’ve meant to put it on for ages.  So here it is.  Some of the art is amazing and ver innovative.  Some of it is humorous (the cat made me really laugh;) The elephant is masterly – even close up.  I liked the crocodile skin –  some of these surfaces are very tactile looking.   The swan, I thought took a lot of imagination to work out how to do accomplish it.  the zebra  😉  Which did you like best and why?

Here’s a video featuring beautiful women in art.  But do you know how which arists painted them?  They’re all familiar, some more than most.  They inspired some of the greatest artists.  The music is by Giovanni Allevi ‘Donne nell’arte’ and is very beautiful, the  contributer is luceariasole

Melt in the mouth Art (Food painting)

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , on May 31, 2010 by echostains

Just a very speedy post tonight if I want to get it on in time.  Yes, its’ the EclecticAsylumArt man again – this time speed painting with chocolate syrup using a spoon!  Is there any end to this artist’s ingenuity and talent?  So far we’ve seen him painting with MacDonalds ketchup, Vegemite on toast, cheesy puffs on velvet and mascara!  What next?

Spread the Art !

Posted in ART, ART VIDEOS with tags , , on May 28, 2010 by echostains

I came across yet another unusual art medium.  This artist uses vegemite and bread to create their art!  Nine pieces of bread and some vegemite, a butter knife and away you go – almost instant art.  When we are children we are told not to play with our food, but when we are adults – look what can happen when we do!

Perhaps the artist could have taken this further by taking a ‘print’ of the finished image by pressing a suitably sized piece of paper over it, or by translating this image into ceramic tiles!

Love the art, don’t mind the vegemite – don’t like the music.  two out of three is good though:)
