Stan Murmur – Poppies

Saturday, October 6th, 2007

Stan Murmur

Not like we haven’t seen poppies before, but there’s something different about the artist. Stan Murmur uses his butt to create his works. I’m sure you’re already looking different at this painting right now. Stan Murmur is was an art teacher in an American high school. He got fired because of his extracurricular activities involving showing how he paints on tv. And since this is America (no offence) he’s suing his formal school now. Stan Murmur’s website.

Thomas Benton

The updates to Artinthepicture are flying in lately. Today I have added two things: the painter Thomas Hart Benton and the artistic movement American Regionalism of which he is one of the biggest representatives.

Time to give a little bit more attention to the artists in action section.

Ode to Magritte

Wednesday, October 3rd, 2007

Ode to Magritte, originally uploaded by McNeney.

Here’s someone who obviously found her inspiration in René Magritte‘s work Dangerous Liaisons. I maybe would’ve preferred a similar composition (with her back in the mirror) but it still is beautiful.

Arne Quinze – Cityscape

Wednesday, October 3rd, 2007

This art project by the Belgian artist Arne Quinze can be seen in Brussels (Belgium). Not only has Arne Quinze provided us with this explanatory video, but you can check out the offical photo page of Cityscape and the unofficial Flickr page as well. If you wish you can also check out the work of his design studio Quinze & Milan. And oh yes if you wondered, he is sponsored by Mini.

Alexandre Orion – Reverse Graffiti

Tuesday, October 2nd, 2007

This artist uses cleaning products to create his “reverse graffiti” art. Even more interesting than the discussion whether this is legal or not, are his results.

Mae Buzz – Single Pear

Mae Buzz

Today’s featured painting (although it’s really a print) is Single Pear by Mae Buzz. The first line of her profile says “I believe that art should be fun and affordable for everyone!” and that is exactly what she has to offer. The pear is available in different sizes, but I think it would look best if it’s rather big. Have a look at Mae Buzz’ profile. And she also has her own blog.
