Forex

Each work is delivered ready to hang on the wall using a “frameless” solution that separates the image 3 cm from the wall, creating an effect of weightlessness
 

Aluminium
Images are printed directly to a 2mm deep anodized aluminium panel, and then attached to another panel, forming a sandwich structure stuffed with black rubber. This structure of great strength and durability contrasts with the delicacy and elegance of the aluminum, creating a play between the images and its magical metallic glints. Each work is delivered ready to hang on the wall using a “frameless” solution that separates the image 3 cm from the wall, creating an effect of weightlessness.
 

Perspex

The high quality photographic printing , the translucent shine and the transparencey make a great combination that alights the colours, the brightness and the definition of your artworks, creating a magic light effect. The finished result is glamourous and unlike anything else.

MuseArtist: Watercolor Spills

Posted in Artistas, creatividad, dibujo e ilustración, pintura, retrato, surrealismo, técnica mixta on Abril 19th, 2010 by admin – Be the first to comment

La carrera artística de Jackson Pollock, estuvo caracterizada por un estilo libre y abstracto que poco a poco fue evolucionando del surrealismo al expresionismo abstracto. Pollock desarrolló una técnica llamada action-painting o dripping, consistente en derramar, dejar gotear o lanzar pintura sobre lienzos sin tensar. Una técnica que creó tendencia y marcó una época dentro del mundo del arte y seguida por otros muchos artistas. Casi podríamos afirmar que MuseArtist  se inpiró de forma consciente o inconciente en la obra de Pollock, para re-versionar esta técnica y crear ”Painted Face“: una obra que mezcla técnicas digitales y tradicionales en una composición que fusiona los característicos derrames de pintura de Pollock sobre el umbral de un rostro. 

 Painted Face by MuseArtist

Jackson Pollock’s artistic career, was characterized by a free and abstract style which gradually evolved from surrealism to abstract expressionism. Pollock developed a technique called action-painting or dripping, consisting of pouring, dripping or throwing paint on unstretched canvas. A technique that created a trend and marked an epoch in the world of art followed by many other artists. We could almost say that MuseArtist  was inspired -consciously or unconsciously- by the work of Pollock,  to make a new version of this technique to create “Painted Face“: a work that combines digital and traditional techniques in a unique composition that fuses Pollock’s characteristic spills with the threshold of a face.

Hang me up

Posted in Artistas, Erótica, color, creatividad, dibujo e ilustración, pintura, retrato, técnica mixta on Abril 16th, 2010 by admin – Be the first to comment

E m i l i e R  (F r a n c e 1 9 8 0)  She started to paint at the age of 8, and never lost her curiosity for those quiet mutations of human being meanwhile acting as a designer all around the world (Canada, US, Europe and Asia).

Emilie’s figures are revealing her concern for body in this urban world, now: as an envelope carrying a soul. Perpetually evolving. She is working on representing an area that is messed up in between truth and lies. What you see is only what you want to look at. In between shadow and neon light, there is this in between unreachable that doesn’t even belong to anything known: Superfluity and pure holiness. 

  

  

  

Hang me up is about love.

We talk about love, we learn how to love. The very first moment of our embryonic life is about love. Trophy women. It is not about women. It is about how much we care. Affection is all we need. Time is all there is. Buried somewhere under our principles of freedom and individuality, there is a ruthless hunt for affection. I hang you up, and you’ll be mine forever. Passion, emotional closeness, desire, uniqueness, attachment as the most common and profoundly human needs. Love at it’s most superficial is a religion that kills loneliness. Hearts in bodies. You can get as many as you want, if you want.

Yet you will never get another soul for yourself.

Fluctuante e irreverente, el sexo es amor, arte, fetiche, ilusión… Un cúmulo de estímulos de incalculable poder, donde la fotografía artística cobra a demanda del espectador un papel fundamental a través de piezas que reúnen los componentes necesarios para plasmar sensaciones y proyectar emociones indescriptibles sobre instantáneas.

A cluster of stimuli and unexpected sensations of incalculable power, where photography takes a key role through pieces that meet and join the necessary components to project  indescribable feelings and emotions with and overdose of eroticism.

Lower than human: 4 by  Tajana Šiždrak

Tajana Šiždrak was born in Zagreb in 1979. After graduating from the School of Applied Art and Design in 1997, Tajana enrolled at the Academy of Fine Arts in Zagreb (faculty of graphics). Following various prominent group exhibitions at Zagreb galleries, Tajana had her first independent exhibition at the “Vision” gallery in 2003 in Zagreb.
She has provided illustrations for Vesernji list, the Croatian travel guide “Hrvatski Hosteler” and illustrated books such “Pinokio” (Carlo Collodi) and “Branka” (August Šenoa). Her work has been exhibited in Johannesburg (South Africa), Belgrade, Zagreb, Berlin and Melville and she is currently spending much time designing and preparing exhibitions.
The artist has received noumerous acknowledgements and special honors from the Academy of Fine Arts in Zagreb.

The series “Lower than Human” exhibited at nuzart.com, offers to the viewer forms and ideas placed right in the border between a real world and an abstract world, expressed through textures, shapes and graphic and photographic elements. Works that mix a recognizable reality, with other elements that belong to an abstraction which has been -intentionally- dyed in blue.

Le Carré

Posted in Artistas, Blanco & Negro, Decoración, Fotografía, General, Tutorials, creatividad on Abril 2nd, 2010 by admin – Be the first to comment

El formato cuadrado  no es siempre el más conveniente para representar determinadas escenas ya que por lo general, conlleva dificultades técnicas. Tanto en fotografía como en ilustración, requiere una estudiada disposición de los elementos y el cumplimiento de una de las normas esenciales que hacen referncia al encuadre y a la composición. Para poder sacar el máximo partido a la imagen, ésta debe al menos cumplir la “Regla de los Tercios” por la que tres de las cuatro masas visuales presentes en la obra, deben situarse sobre los puntos calientes de la misma. De estos puntos o masas, es de donde emergen las directrices que guian la mirada del espectador de un lugar a otro, evitando que ésta se salga de la imagen.

Dorit, con su imagen Don’t ask, nos ofrece un ejemplo de cómo la mirada del espectador es guiada de un punto a otro a través de líneas horizontales (el mar), verticales (el poste) y diagonales (las huellas) para conducirnos al punto de principal de interés: una rueda atada a un poste de luz, que plantea la incógnita de la autora y a su vez da título a la obra: Don’t ask.

Don’t ask by Dorit 

The square format is not always the most suitable to represent certain scenes as it is often technically difficult to compose. In both photography and illustration, it requires an elaborate arrangement of the elements, and the fulfillment of one of the main rules concerning the framing and composition of a scene which will allow the artist to take the full advantage of it : “The Rule of the Thirds”,  for which three of the four visual masses must be placed on the hot zones of the artwork. From these “hot points” is where the guidelines emerge and guide the viewer’s eye from one place to another, in order to prevent it from being put away, outside the image.
Dorit , with her artwork Don’t ask, gives us an example of how the viewer is led from one point to another through horizontal lines (the sea), vertical lines (the post), and diagonal lines (the car tracks in the sand) to take us to the main point of interest: a tire attached to a lamppost. A weird situation which raises a question to the author about its meaning and gives the title to the artwork: Don’t ask
