Apparently, Nicholas Serota, director of the Tate Modern, was not prepared to let the name of Donald Judd (1928-1994) silently fade from our memories - did he not do his utmost to make the man famous in the first place?

The exhibition travels to Düsseldorf (19/06 to 05/09/04) and Basel (02/10 to 09/01/05). Heavy artillery ... read more »
Digital art is an extraordinarily exciting new medium that closely resembles the digital revolution in music and the way music is created, recorded and archived-so much so in fact that I could not resist applying some of the techniques that I use in composing electronic music to my digital paintings. Instant gratification is nice, and I experienced much of it at first, but as anyone will tell you who has used professional graphics programs like Illustrator or Photoshop and tried to create faithful and ... read more »

“What can you teach? Not art.
Contrary to the common view, art can’t be taught.
I believe that a piece of art comes out naturally from a human being. Just like a human being comes out from another“.
Kazuo Ohno, “What can you teach? Not art.”
11HellHeaven firmly believes that art is a natural process like life itself, and that has to be shared for the growth of the whole mankind. 11HellHeaven is a cultural symposium, an experimental circle of arts and ideas with a strong focus on innovation and contemporaneity. beyond the limit of “average”. With respect to our artists we act as a nomadic Gallery, opening to unconventional locations and pooling knowledge and experience.
Our logo is two arrows moving upwards and downwards, to represent the continuous shifting between opposite poles. Our motto is: “In Media non stat virtus”, whose translation from latin is: “there is no virtue in the middle”. Mediocrity is not a value. At the same time, “there is no truth in the media” and that is why we deliberately misspelled the latin motto (middle = media). For us, art represents the last bulwark against the flattening of consciousness in the media society.
Informal, conceptual, performing arts and videoart are 11Hellheaven’s core. We produce visions, performances and ideas. Everyone is welcomed to share his/her art and vision. It’s our contribution to increase the global level of awareness of the planet. read more »

Piuarch pays tribute to Venezuelan Artist Carlos Cruz-Diez with an optical installation created using botanical essences. Chromatic effects make dynamic the courtyard of Via Palermo 1 in Milan
For the Milan Design Week 2016, Piuarch dedicates to kinetic art a special set up of its roof garden in Via Palermo 1, Milan. Set in the heart of the old city, the Kinetic Garden is a homage to the Venezuelan artist Carlos Cruz-Diez which has always been a reference point for Piuarch. The project is a collaboration with the landscape designer Cornelius Gavril which trough the use of flowers and vegetables, designs the space in order to produce the feeling of movement and dynamism. The peculiar structure of flower beds and pallets created by Piuarch on the roof of their building, welcome a disposition of 4 plants - two varieties of salad in red and green and two pansy in yellow and blue - each essence defines a uniform color strip arranged in straight lines constantly repeated. The chromatic effect is amplified by the use of triangular axis placed along the lines of color to increase the perceived depth. The installation creates an active relationship between space and guests: the static image becomes dynamic. Partners are VerdeVivo who oversaw the preparation of plants and Vivai Mandelli who took care of the installation.
Kinetic Garden is the special exhibition designed for the 300 square meters roof area of the Piuarch building – in via Palermo 1, Milan. THE MODULAR PALLET SYSTEM Central to this concept is the creation of a modular system that uses pallets to build easily assembled structures that combine aesthetics and functionality at a reasonable cost. The Garden aims to be an inspiring system, repeatable on a large scale for redeveloping areas that are not used. The pallets are used both as a walking surface and, upside-down, as containers for soil. In this way, a single modular element is used to create the garden’s layout.

Retouches photo avec Photoshop (French) by Cyril Bruneau
"I started to think towards two divergent rivulets. One, the phrase "I love you" as used in daily parlance, aggressive, vulnerable, necessary, and common simultaneously, the most important frightening thing; it was also a gateway to what you, yes, as an individual with a perceived sense of identity, believe others want you to say to them; it was a qualifier to other more alluring and emotionally specific concerns. How do we trade in love, sex, happiness?"
An inspiration for the series had been "Le Dejeuner Sur L'Herbe" by Edouard Manet, depicting a nude woman at a picnic with 2 well dressed men. Painted in a rough, bold manner, this painting caused controversy in 1862 for its shocking and raw depiction of gender inequality, revealing the nude tantalizing figure as both a probable prostitute as well as an allegorical muse. Again, there is the study of contrasts -- the feminine versus the masculine, the naked versus the clothed, the elite versus the commonplace, and the innate aggression versus the vulnerability of the act of nudity itself.
Which led to secondly, maybe not so divergently, the fetishization and objectification of inspiration, of the muse, of all passion—the shattering, obvious, hard edge of this that tail gates easier romanticized views. The series, "I love you” examines the intersections of adoration and desperation, victim and aggressior, oppression and self oppression, globalism, even colonialization and provincialism."

"Surrealism is not the way you live, act or feel. It's the way you dream. We, who call ourselves 'surrealists', are marked by the Lord himself with a slightest touch of insanity. Creative insanity that is, granting the freedom to transform reality, to reach beyond visible, and to display the possibility of impossible. My personal goal, as a surrealist, is to represent the unreality with maximum reality, trying to make you believe in what you see. This is what Salvador Dali did the best." ... read more »

"I am absolutely fascinated by cities. Because of this passion, I graduated in architecture in Rio de Janeiro. While at the university, I started my art studies at the Modern Art Museum of Rio de Janeiro and experienced different kinds of media and techniques, from oil painting to jewelry making, but after being fully introduced to watercolour it soon became another passion. I started off with small sized watercolours, then I moved on to work with large scale canvas and acrylic colours, trying to ... read more »

In 1997 and 1998 Filmmaker Bob Bryan singlehandedly created, produced & curated the "1st and 2nd International Graffiti Art Competition." This was a first ever event, celebrating Art creations from Spray-Can Artists all around the world. The IGAC took place in the downtown Museum of Art, Los Angeles California. This beautiful & impressive Collectors Edition (ART BOOK 1 & ART BOOK 2) commemorates the vast style diversity of the International submissions and winners. ART BOOK 1 CATEGORIES: ¨ Canvas ¨ Collage ¨ Cyber-Space Art ¨ Multi-Media Installation ¨ Old School ¨ Other Mediums THE GENESIS of GRAFFITI VERITE’: Read the Writing on the Wall "Truth Or Dare" (Featured Article in RAP PAGES MAGAZINE) Graffiti Verite’s Bob Bryan continue to prove that beauty is in the eye of the beholder GRAFFITI VERITE’, the incisive documentary on the lives of Los Angeles Graffiti Artists, blew up like no other graff video to date, leaving behind an unprecedented trail of award recognition, media exposure and education about the Art Form. Bob Bryan, director, producer and director of photography on the film, accomplished what no other videographer had yet been able to do: create a graffiti documentary with mainstream crossover appeal. “I managed to promote the documentary in a way that didn’t just reach some of the old heads that were already in the life, but ‘turn-on’ people that didn’t know anything about Graffiti Art or that had a prejudice against graffiti,” Bryan points out. The filmmaker particularly targeted gallery people, educators, librarians and institutions that could be an asset for Hip-Hop and Graffiti Art in a financial sense. Bryan’s aesthetic and technical skills have been acknowledged with film and video competitions worldwide, including the prestigious Council of Int’l Non-Theatrical Events (CINE) Golden Eagle Awards, as well as, a National Educational Media Network, GOLDEN APPLE Award, Cinema in Industry (CINDY) Awards (sponsored by the Association of Visual Communicators (AVC) - not to mention that he’s also up for an Emmy this year. This year also finds Bryan taking it to another level by legitimizing Graffiti Art on an international scale through the creation of the First Annual International Graffiti Art Competition. “I’m taking the credibility that GRAFFITI VERITE’ has established and bringing a lot of Graffiti Art to the attention of major institutions and educational organizations,” he says. “I’ve been successful with being able to bring Los Angeles Graffiti Artists up, and now what I want to do is bring the international community of Hip-Hop and Graffiti Art to the attention of a worldwide audience.” Bryan’s sole purpose for the establishment of the FIRST INTERNATIONAL GRAFFITI ART COMPETITION is to “...create a forum for the serious examination, illumination, appreciation and recognition of this worldwide Art Form and phenomenon...”

Adam "BixbyKnolls" Roose, A Bixby Knolls (Uptown Long Beach) California Native born May 3rd 1987, hence the alias "Mr. May 3hird", is a melodic threat to those who underestimate him. His music consists of a pure original and versatile sound allowing Adam to create a refreshing twist to current Hip Hop. Influenced by the likes of artists as timeless as The Isley Brothers to current artists like The Weeknd, he creates a sound that allows the audience to bite their tongues before proclaiming the absence of originality in Long Beach. He also provides the rare combination of skills that would make any A & R think twice.
When he's not displaying his flow, he's probably producing or composing the very music he's writing to, not to mention working with the melodic gift of serenity he also possesses. When singing he delivers a very soulful and warming tone that can bend and fit virtually any style of music. "Consider my music the postcard for Long Beach, CA". Adam Roose refers to his music as the representation that is never displayed through music in his hometown. "I feel the options available for music being represented by Long Beach is good and I support all of them, but my sound is long beyond what people actually have to offer and doesn't need to be hidden or free any longer. People pay for music of this quality." A confident and proud individual is the self-proclaimed "Dean" and CEO/Founder of the illustrious "University". Open your minds and ears to what the "University" and Adam Roose have to offer.

EXHIBITION ON SCREEN open its fifth season with Canaletto & the Art of Venice, an immersive journey into the life and art of Venice’s famous view-painter.
No artist better captures the essence and allure of Venice than Giovanni Antonio Canal, better known as Canaletto. Despite Canaletto’s close relationship with the city in which he lived and died, the world’s largest collection of his works resides not in his native Italy, but in Britain as part of the Royal Collection. In 1762, George III purchased almost the entire collection amassed by Joseph Smith,British Consul in Venice and Canaletto’s principal agent.
EXHIBITION ON SCREEN’s latest release will grant unique access to the Royal Collection’s exceptional holdings of Canaletto's work, much of which is on display as part of the exhibition Canaletto & the Art of Venice at The Queen’s Gallery (19 May - 12 November).
The remarkable group of over 200 paintings, drawings and prints on display offer unparalleled insight into the artistry ofCanaletto and his contemporaries, and the city he became a master at capturing. The film also offers the chance to step inside two official royal residences - Buckingham Palace and Windsor Castle - to learn more about the artist, and Joseph Smith, the man who introduced Canaletto to Britain.
From London, Canaletto & the Art of Venice will travel to the great Italian city to explore the origins of Canaletto’s art. Whilst appearing to be faithful representations of the city, Canaletto's skill came from his manipulation of reality. He moved buildings around or opened up vistas to create the perfectcomposition, and his paintings of Venice were highly sought after by Grand Tourists. His playful imagination extended into a new genre in which he excelled. The 'capriccio' combined real and fantasy architecture into imagined views. In this sense, Canaletto is more than a topographical artist - he is a master storyteller.
Cinema-goers will embark on their very own 21st century Grand Tour, visiting the sites enjoyed by their 18th century counterparts and immortalised in Canaletto’s views - from the Rialto Bridge to the Piazza San Marco, and the Palazzo Ducale to the Church of Santi Giovanni e Paolo. Guided by RoyalCollection Trust curators and the world’s leading experts in Venetian history, the film is not only a wonderful way to see the exhibition, but an opportunity to get closer to Canaletto and the city that inspired him.

Art, unlike science, is not measured by its progress. Its evolution reminds one of concentric circles on the surface of water that has been disturbed by a rock. Similarly, arts of cultures and civilizations stand independently, but at the same time they are unified by their common striving for order and harmony; a tendency that can be observed not only in art but in all organic life. Art is the physical manifestation of the sensual perceptions of the world as interpreted and organized by these various groups of peoples. This is why ... read more »
