I have always felt art to be a gateway to a special place, somewhere, where I can be myself and express whatever emotions I am carrying. I think art mean more to me then I realize. I do not think I could see myself not doing it. I love the feeling you get when your pencil or brush hits the paper, or when you are creating something amazing in Photoshop. I love the feeling of satisfaction and love when u complete a composition and it look amazing, the feeling of being proud and confident of yourself for creating something special and unique. I have always known that I wanted to create and do something with art, I always find myself doodling or coming up with new ideas for different pieces. My friends always ask do you want to play sports and I would say sure, you play and I will draw you playing. I think that with art u need to keep an open mind and not be too precious of your work, because there is always room for improve and to expand on different ideas. You need to be open and willing when it comes to art, and I believe I have really improved in that part of it, not taking offence to something someone says and really expanding on what they have to say. Art to me is something tangible something that u can always go in and fix and play around with it, it should be something you enjoy doing three hundred and sixty five days of the year, and something you do not get sick of. For me it is a passion something to be proud of, art is creating new and interesting ideas and…
* Elise winters is an American artist from New York. Winters specialises in creating contemporary jewellery and sculptures with polymer clay. Polymer clay is a very unique medium that feels like clay while sets to be like plastic or resin. Winters says that the reason she likes to work with this material so much is that it’s so malleable and she can easily create the organic shapes she wants by pulling, twisting and tangling the clay. Just like the ‘dinosaur designs’, Elise winters is greatly inspired…
My artwork is the expression of the song “leave the earth’s surface”. Though my art, I
encourage enhanced the awareness between the earth and the universe, conveying a
justification of our passion towards our future dream and freedom. Utilizing my own
voice, I intend to impact others (include teenager and adults) consider the troubles that
Heavily driven by my artistic intention to address the song throughout the creative
process, my piece is an indirect reflection of the song…
Frida Kahlo Comes To Dinner
The fascinating character of the Mexican artist Frida Kahlo is brought out in the poem “Frida Kahlo Comes to Dinner” by Christina Strickland. In this poem a narrator describes Frida Kahlo’s behaviour and the atmosphere she creates when she comes to a dinner party. The character of Kahlo depicted in this poem brings out the themes of making the most of life; enjoying yourself; being an individual, and not caring for society’s moral code.
The use of Frida Kahlo’s fascinating…
giving up his family. The second reason is that he lost his health and his life. The third reason is that his behavior is contrary to morality and artists in the future might follow his destructive life-style, and therefore created many future victims.
No one on this earth should give up his/her family to pursuit success. French post-impressionist artist Paul Gauguin perpetually yearned for an exotic paradise, he abandoned his family and career to go to Tahiti. However, in the end, he lived a lonely…
I’m an extremely outgoing and social person. As disappointing as people can be, I know how to not get bothered by the little things and I accept everyone the way they are. Being surrounded by so many characters would be so inspiring to my work as an artist. As an independent and determined person, I’m ready to jump into a sea of strangers and swim my way up to the top. I want to change the way people see beauty, and I want to show that through my pictures. Art is the most valuable thing to me. Without…
Personal Artist Statement
Something that inspires me to make art is how open it is, you can draw anything you want
to express. If you were only to draw certain things , I think it wouldn't be that fun and inspiring.
Sometimes I draw when I am bored and I also get inspired by music. Depending on the type
of music that I hear that's sometimes what I would interpret.Sometimes artist's artwork look so
amazing that it inspires me to try to do something like their artwork…

Modern Artist and Ancient Philosopher
The two essays, “The Creative Process” by James Baldwin and “The Allegory of the Cave” by Plato, highlight the importance of a two people whose roles in society are very alike. Baldwin, in the midst of the Civil Rights Movement of the 60’s, writes about the artist in that time’s (still holding true for today) society, being the outcast and gateway for others. Plato writes an allegory shining light upon the duty…
The Scarlet Letter Soundtrack: Artist’s Statements
Selection One: All That I’ve Got – The Used:
This was a selection chosen for Dimmesdale, and I feel it accurate represents the original numbness that he felt, and finally, the explosion of his grief. It also talks, in parts, about how he’s “not lonely”, when he is, in fact, quite lonely. It’s a very nice picture of him having to keep away from Hester, but still remembering traces of her, these things he held in his mind but can no longer give…
The Ramirez Family
A chance encounter, at a creek in Oaxaca, Mexico, evolved into a fourteen-year photographic study of one family’s slow steady evolution and ultimately has become a heart-felt example of their determination and success.
Images of the poor are not rare and there is nothing particularly remarkable about the Ramirez family except that ordinary life is stunning in itself and my pursuit is always to create intimate, emotional, provocative images…
Banksy: Artist or Lawbreaker?
Art is a persons’ opinion. The definition of art is the quality, production, expression, or realm, according to aesthetic principles, of what is beautiful, appealing, or of more than ordinary significance. There is no real definition for what is beautiful or appealing to the human eye. Banksy is said to be an artist by some and a graffiti lawbreaker by others. Basically, it is up to the person to define Banksy as someone who is doing the right thing verses doing the…
