MuseArtist: Watercolor Spills

La carrera artística de Jackson Pollock, estuvo caracterizada por un estilo libre y abstracto que poco a poco fue evolucionando del surrealismo al expresionismo abstracto. Pollock desarrolló una técnica llamada action-painting o dripping, consistente en derramar, dejar gotear o lanzar pintura sobre lienzos sin tensar. Una técnica que creó tendencia y marcó una época dentro del mundo del arte y seguida por otros muchos artistas. Casi podríamos afirmar que MuseArtist  se inpiró de forma consciente o inconciente en la obra de Pollock, para re-versionar esta técnica y crear ”Painted Face“: una obra que mezcla técnicas digitales y tradicionales en una composición que fusiona los característicos derrames de pintura de Pollock sobre el umbral de un rostro. 

 Painted Face by MuseArtist

Jackson Pollock’s artistic career, was characterized by a free and abstract style which gradually evolved from surrealism to abstract expressionism. Pollock developed a technique called action-painting or dripping, consisting of pouring, dripping or throwing paint on unstretched canvas. A technique that created a trend and marked an epoch in the world of art followed by many other artists. We could almost say that MuseArtist  was inspired -consciously or unconsciously- by the work of Pollock,  to make a new version of this technique to create “Painted Face“: a work that combines digital and traditional techniques in a unique composition that fuses Pollock’s characteristic spills with the threshold of a face.

Hang me up

E m i l i e R  (F r a n c e 1 9 8 0)  She started to paint at the age of 8, and never lost her curiosity for those quiet mutations of human being meanwhile acting as a designer all around the world (Canada, US, Europe and Asia).

Emilie’s figures are revealing her concern for body in this urban world, now: as an envelope carrying a soul. Perpetually evolving. She is working on representing an area that is messed up in between truth and lies. What you see is only what you want to look at. In between shadow and neon light, there is this in between unreachable that doesn’t even belong to anything known: Superfluity and pure holiness. 

  

  

  

Hang me up is about love.

We talk about love, we learn how to love. The very first moment of our embryonic life is about love. Trophy women. It is not about women. It is about how much we care. Affection is all we need. Time is all there is. Buried somewhere under our principles of freedom and individuality, there is a ruthless hunt for affection. I hang you up, and you’ll be mine forever. Passion, emotional closeness, desire, uniqueness, attachment as the most common and profoundly human needs. Love at it’s most superficial is a religion that kills loneliness. Hearts in bodies. You can get as many as you want, if you want.

Yet you will never get another soul for yourself.

It all started with a Fox…From sketch to print, by Squirrell

squirrell_foxandtheforest.jpg

The Fox and the Forest

Siempre he tenido curiosidad por saber cómo los artistas dan forma a sus proyectos. Cualquier creador que haya diseñado algo, conocerá perfectamente el complejo proceso que se lleva a cabo desde que uno se sienta delante de un folio blanco con la cabeza llena de ideas, hasta que… voilá: surge el resultado.

Y eso, entre otras cosas, es lo que le pregunté a Squirrell para que me contara el proceso que lleva a cabo con cada uno de sus diseños. Unos bocetos aparentemente sencillos y pintados a mano, muestran los pasos previos que dan forma a una de sus ilustraciones: The Fox and the Forest 

¿Cuándo comenzaste a diseñar?

Desde niño siempre he hecho cosas. He dibujado, he pintado y he hecho de todo.  Mis padres solían enfandarse conmigo porque pintaba todo lo que pillaba: las puertas del armario, la tele, los interruptores…afortunadamente ahora estoy bastante más comedido…

¿Por qué te haces llamar Squirrell?

Simplemente porque ese es mi nombre 😉

¿Has expuesto tus obras alguna vez?

Sí. He realizado varias exposiciones  a nivel local, en Kent, y además tengo algunas obras a la venta por galerías de la zona.

¿Has ganado algún premio?

Todavía no, aunque todo está por llegar…

¿Crees que en la actualidad los artistas cuentan con más oportunidades que antes para promocionarse gracias a plataformas artísticas como nuzart.com?

Creo que lo que realmente ha conseguido Internet, es abrir las puertas del Arte al mundo. Y en concreto, lugares como nuzart.com facilitan y hacen más accesible para la gente, la compra y la venta de Arte de gran calidad a un precio razonable. Para mí es desde luego, un ejemplo y el camino a seguir.

squirrell_fox-process.jpg

I’ve always been curious to know how artists develop ideas from a starting point to create a body of work. Every artist who has ever painted or made an artwork, will perfectly know what this is all about and the complex process that takes place from the sketch to the finished print.

And among some other things, I asked Squirrell to reveal to me the process to know how his designs are conceived from the beginning. And voilá… some “apparently simple” handpainted sketches show us the previous steps that give shape to one of his works: The Fox and the Forest

When did you start to design?

I have always drawn, painted and made things.  I upset my parents by painting everything in my bedroom including the wardrobe, tv and light switch…  these days I am a little more restrained.

Why do you call yourself Squirrell? 

I call myself Squirrell because that is my name 😉

Have you ever exhibited your works?

I exhibit my paintings locally in Kent. I usually have some for sale in galleries near here.

Have you won any awards or prizes?

…I have not won any major awards or prizes… yet!Do you think there are now more opportunities than ever for artists through platforms like nuzart.com?

I think the internet has really opened up the art world.  Websites like nuzart.com have made it so easy to buy and sell great quality affordable art.  For me it is the way forward.

El espíritu inquieto de Guzk

guzk_mariposa.jpg

Mariposa

Guzk es el apodo artístico de Eguzkiñe (Guipuzcoa- España). Su espíritu inquieto e incorformista la ha llevado a probar y a experimentar con muchas de las facetas que giran en torno al mundo de las Artes Gráficas, aunque su verdadera pasión radica en la pintura y la ilustración tradicional con ciertos guiños al Photoshop.

Su obra captura sensaciones que son traducidas y reexpresadas a través del color, el contraste, las líneas y las formas orgánicas provenientes del gesto espontáneo y la comunicación no verbal. Le gusta representar personajes femeninos cuyas emociones se descifran a través de los ojos de sus figuras, aportando mucha fuerza y vitalidad. Así mismo incorpora en sus ilustraciones elementos  propios del diseño gráfico (texturas, motivos, tipografía, etc.), convirtiendo cada uno de sus dibujos en originales mezclas de fusión artística.

guzk_abrazos.jpg

Abrazos 

Guzk is the pseudonym of artist Eguzkiñe form Guipuzcoa, Spain. Her non-conformity and her restless spirit have led her to try and experiment with the many differents aspects which surround the world of Graphic Arts and Design, eventhough her true passion lies in painting and traditional illustration with bold nods to Photoshop.

Her work captures feelings that are translated into color, contrast, lines and organic forms that arise from the spontaneous gesture and nonverbal communication. She likes to represent female characters whose emotions are decoded through the eyes, providing great strength and vitality. Guzk also incorporates typical elements of graphic design into her illustrations (textures, motifs, typeface, etc..), converting each of the drawings into an original mix of artistic fusion.

Paisajes de papel

Paisajes de Papel, de José Robles

Dicen que el minimalismo consiste en realizar obras de arte con elementos cada vez menos complejos y materiales poco manipulados, que lejos de resultar difíciles, consiguen involucrar al espectador para hacerle pensar sobre los procedimientos del arte.   

Paisajes de Papel es algo así. Un conjunto de obras firmadas por José Robles, que retratan planos convertidos en paisajes esculpidos en papel sin caer en lo complejo, sin recurrir prácticamente a los colores.  Son pequeños fragmentos de arte conceptual que ponen de manifiesto, aunque sea de manera inconsciente, la estética minimalista y el sentido estético de este artista que sin saberlo lo es.

It is said that minimalism is making something artistic out of elements increasingly simple and minimally processed, that far from being difficult to understand, it manages to engage the viewer to make him think about art procedures.

Paisajes de Papel (Paper Landscapes) is something like this. A collection of works by José Robles, which captures surfaces converted into  landscapes sculpted on paper, without any complexity and practically without appealing to color. Pieces of conceptual art that highlights -albeit unconsciously-, the minimalist aesthetic and the aesthetic sense of this great artist, even though he might not be aware of it.
