I like a lot of different sytles and periods of art and normally favor painters over sculptors…Today in the Artsts I like series is Davide Dormino, a living artist, who some might think had the audacity to say anything in his project about freedom
You can click on any of the slides above for a full view of the image. When I first posted the first 2 images shown here back in 2012 on other posts, I really didn’t know or find a lot of info on the artist. Having revisted the works, decided to look for more info on the artist Phillip Evergood and share it here. At the bottom of this article […]
Artist’s I Like: Josef Albers Josef Albers was a master of colour and a teacher. I was first introduced to him when his book Interaction of Color was on the syllabus for the foundation Color Theory course in college. Along with his book we were required to purchase a pack of very expensive beautiful paper and in addition to a myriad of painting and drawing color projects, we were required […]
UPDATE: Today on this 10th day of September 2015 (orig pub date 30/04/2013), I decided to post a quick update to this article on my blog since I came across an article that really grabbed my attention. It was on Hugo Simberg’s photographs. At the bottom of the page is the link to it. Previously, I hadn’t thought of Simberg as referencing photographs in his art process, yet he does. […]
Almost every painter I have ever studied has many sides to themselves with very few exceptions. The longer their life, the more diverse ….maybe? At some point in the early 90s I was exposed to Pavol Filonov (Russian 1882-1941)
When I was undergraduate studying art, required reading was Chipp’s Theories of Modern Art: A Source Book by Artists and Critics (California Studies in the History of Art). It is a collection of original writings by artists themselves – letters, essays, manifestos etc. One of the artists that is included in this text is the German born artist who later moved to the United States, Hans Hofmann. I was very […]
The first painting, which I personally prefer, shown here by Alexandru Ciucurencu is based on a passage from a poem by renowned Romanian author Mihai Eminescu, “Imparat si proletar” (Rulers and Workers) the author of the article doesn’t specifically say what passage of the poem and I am unfamiliar with this work so there is not interpretation or speculation here, although I wonder if there is something else behind it. […]
Thomas Hart Benton was an american painter who painted everyday life. Shown above are 2 oil paintings that illustrate his use of colour – 1. The Sheepherder 2. The Hailstorm That is my favorite thing about his works is how he uses colour. You can read more about Thomas Hart Benton here. Feel free to add any links to his works in the comments section.

Dog Photograph from his book The Animals Giacomo Brunelli does not publish basic photography, he creates works – herein lies the difference between art photography and photography in general. On a personal note I am particularly fond of animals as subjects in creative works. Here is a collection where animals are shown in ways that can evoke a myriad of thoughts, feelings and stir your emotions. You can see an […]

Artists I Like: Maria Truța In 2007 there was a retrospective of Maria Truța’s work at the Muzeul de Arta in Cluj-Napoca. She graduated from Cluj’s art academy in 1968. This is a scan of a 40×40 oil painting with a title translated to english is Laughing Crying from the exhibition catalog. There is an article about the exposition in romanian here.
Artists I Like: Nathalie Alony In some instances in my Artist’s I like series you will see one work by a contemporary artist that I like. In these cases a link to their site is the most to offer as I don’t necessarily want to analyze their art or even have an opinion about it. Here is Nathalie Alony’s site where you can see more of her work.

He is best known for his sunflower paintings series and starry night paintings. He often made several versions of a topic. He also is know for suffering from mental illness and slicing off his own ear. But did you know that Simon & Schuster’s logo is based on […]
