Janet Ternoff - Spring Street New York

Janet Ternoff – Soho, Spring Street, NYC
12″ x 18″ (30 x 45 cm)

Again time for some Ebay art. She paints some wonderful city scenes that she sees in her everyday life. She doesn’t have a blog yet, but I have found her profile page on Ebay.

Spencer Tunick – Nudes on a Glacier

Sunday, August 19th, 2007

Spencer Tunick - Glacier

Spencer Tunick is an artist with a concept. He makes installations with a lot of naked people in rather unusual locations and then takes stunning photo’s from them. For his latest stunt he decided to support Greenpeace and move to the glaciers in the Alps. Must’ve been pretty cold. The rest of the photo’s on the glacier can be found on Kc’s log (in Dutch). Other projects by Tunick have been in Mexico, Amsterdam, Bruges, Düsseldorf and many more. 

N. Raghuraman – Look Beyond The Fence

Look Beyond the Fence

For our unknown artist of the day, today I have chosen the watercolour artist N. Raghuraman. Although he’s just a beginner, I believe he certainly deserves this post. I really like the way the shadows add an extra touch. And yes, he has a blog.

Till Nowak – frameboX

frameboX

 This digital artist has created this rather stunning 3d image. Till Nowak claims this is a tribute to H.R. Giger and Giuseppe Arcimboldo (Arcimboldo’s Summer). And ofcourse a link to Nowak’s site with more detailed pics.

Thx for finding this link to Michel Vuijlsteke (Belgian blog in Dutch).

Pablo Picasso – Les Demoiselles d’Avignon

Saturday, August 18th, 2007

Interesting video which shows how Picasso eventually managed to paint his famous Les Demoiselles d’Avignon. For many this is the painting that revolutionized and defined the way the visual arts were heading in the 20th century as it wass completely different from anything done before.

Jerry “Sixty Minute Artist” Lebo – Goshen Field Study

Jerry Lebo - Goshen Field Study

 Jerry Lebo – Goshen Field Study
12 ” x 10 ” (30 x 25 cm)

This one’s really interesting. The artist names himelf the Sixty Minute Artist as he tries to find ways of working more efficient on his art. If you’re also an artist struggling with your time, his blog might certainly be worth a visit. In order to create his landscape paintings, Jerry Lebo uses rather rough brush strokes. The results are amazing; I’d call it impressionism to the max. For once you can click the painting to see the scan at full size just to see how Jerry works. And ofcourse, Jerry Lebo has his own blog.

Here are the rest of the pictures.

Robert Delaunay – Homage To Bleriot

Friday, August 17th, 2007

bleriot.jpg

This painting by Robert Delaunay that is a representation of orphic cubism (indeed, cubism but with circles) has been my inspiration to create Artinthepicture. A girl (always the roots of my inspiration) told me that this was her favorite painting, so I tried to look it up on the internet. After a long search visiting all the major art history websites, I decided that there wasn’t one site that I thought was great. So I decided to build it myself. One day I’ll find that girl again.

Dennis Wojtkiewicz – Flower Series 8

Dennis Wojtkiewicz - Flower Series 8
45 ” x 76 ” (114 x 193 cm)
oil on canvas

Not the easiest name to remember, so I’ll just put up a direct link to Wojtkiewicz’ (got it right for the 3rd time in a row!) website. His artwork isn’t really that revolutionary, but the detail he puts in his work is. As an example I have one of his sunflower (told you it’s not really revolutionary) paintings here. It’s a huge painting but in the right setting it could make a great impression.

Wim Delvoye – Tattooed pigs

Thursday, August 16th, 2007

Wim Delvoye

My previous post on the pink cow immediately reminded me of a different artist: the contemporary Belgian artist Wim Delvoye. In this work of art he tattooed real-life pigs with the fashionable logo’s of the Louis Vuitton company. I’m sure I don’t need to explain the meaning of this work ?
