As the connoisseur and lover of fine arts he is, or wants to be known as, Jay Z would probably approve. More after the jump LEFT: Artist GRANT WOOD Original painting.

Art nouveau, think Tamara de Limpica

I am a sucker for a lot of different things. I love the expressionists, the cubists, the surrealists, art deco, art nouveau, impressionism. Goodness, I guess I like almost everybody except whoever is creating art deco right now. It is probably cliche to notice how common it is to look backward and admire everything only to look around you and be disgusted. I suspect that says more about our personal sense of satisfaction and fulfilment than it does about the art we presume to judge, but maybe not. The art nouveau, Continue reading

Consciousness is a rumor …!

….from Hallidd’s Weblog

Trying to remember what innocence was like. Its impossible. I suppose history is against us. Every generation thinks that somewhere along the way they lost their innocence. For us it was Kennedy’s assassination. For the generation in college it was 911. For our parents it was Pearl Harbor. Or maybe The Crash. But the world has never been innocent.

Blavatar DARE TO WEAR SOME ART?

Don’t we all just love art? Whether it’s in a museum, a part of an exhibition or simply hanging on the wall in our living room. This one true function-less form of humans’ imagination rather often exists only to give us the thrills.  Lately, my favourite art form has been the wearable one. I can’t help but appreciate people who have reconciled with the time we live in and are willing to walk the extra mile to create pieces of art that are innovative electrifying and you can actually put them on yourself, just for the sake of showing of, or…  whatever. The best part being, wearable art, as any other art form, does not have to explain its existence!Don’t we all just love art?
