Fluxus Movement, Artists and Major Works | The Art Story. "In Fluxus there has never been any attempt to agree on aims or methods; individuals with something unnamable in common have simply naturally coalesced to publish and perform their work. Perhaps this common thing is a feeling that the bounds of art are much wider than they have conventionally seemed, or that art and certain long established bounds are no longer very useful. " Synopsis Fluxus was a loosely organized group of artists that spanned the globe, but had an especially strong presence in New York City.

George Maciunas is historically considered the primary founder and organizer of the movement, who described Fluxus as, "a fusion of Spike Jones, gags, games, Vaudeville, Cage and Duchamp. " Like the Futurists and Dadaists before them, Fluxus artists did not agree with the authority of museums to determine the value of art, nor did they believe that one must be educated to view and understand a piece of art.

Visual Artist Julio Salgado Is Queer, Undocumented, And Proud As Hell. Julio Salgado will not allow others to take over his narrative. Julio Salgado was brought to the U.S. from Mexico in 1995, when he was 11 years old. Now 33, the visual artist has taken two decades of queer American, undocumented life and rendered them in digital celluloid, making take-no-prisoner posters as part of a production company entirely helmed by undocumented creatives (Dreamers Adrift).

He has six speaking engagements (on artivism!) Between now and May 5, and of course, has created two alternatively hilarious and heartbreaking web series, Undocumented and Awkward, and Osito. He’s busy, shall we say. Salgado is also a desperately-needed voice in our current political climate. Julio’s work is unapologetically brash and mischievous. The Establishment caught up with Salgado to discuss everything from growing up undocumented, to how he’s grown to own every part of his identity, to what his outlook is as we tumble headlong into a political era that feels more like a living nightmare. Aerial Fashion - Joseph Ford. Hokusai - Wikipedia. Katsushika Hokusai (葛飾 北斎? , listen , circa October 31, 1760 – May 10, 1849) was a Japanese artist, ukiyo-e painter and printmaker of the Edo period.[1] He was influenced by Sesshu and other styles of Chinese painting.[2] Born in Edo (now Tokyo), Hokusai is best known as author of the woodblock print series Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji (富嶽三十六景, Fugaku Sanjūroku-kei?

, c. 1831) which includes the internationally iconic print, The Great Wave off Kanagawa, created during the 1820s. Hokusai created the "Thirty-Six Views" both as a response to a domestic travel boom and as part of a personal obsession with Mount Fuji.[3] It was this series, specifically The Great Wave print and Fine Wind, Clear Morning, that secured Hokusai’s fame both in Japan and overseas.

Early life and artistic training[edit] Hokusai was known by at least thirty names during his lifetime. After a year, Hokusai's name changed for the first time, when he was dubbed Shunrō by his master. Works[edit] Height of career[edit] Shannon Shiang. List of works by Leonardo da Vinci - Wikipedia. Wikimedia list article Leonardo da Vinci (1452–1519) was one of the leading artists of the High Renaissance. Fifteen artworks are generally attributed either in whole or in large part to him.

However, it is believed that he made many more, only for them to be lost over the years or remain unidentified. The authorship of several paintings traditionally attributed to Leonardo is disputed. Two major works are known only as copies. The small number of surviving paintings is due in part to Leonardo's frequently disastrous experimentation with new techniques and his chronic procrastination.

I Taught Myself To Live Simply by Anna Akhmatova | Art-Sheep | Art-Sheep. I taught myself to live simply and wisely, to look at the sky and pray to God, and to wander long before evening to tire my superfluous worries. When the burdocks rustle in the ravine and the yellow-red rowanberry cluster droops I compose happy verses about life’s decay, decay and beauty. I come back. The fluffy cat licks my palm, purrs so sweetly and the fire flares bright on the saw-mill turret by the lake. Only the cry of a stork landing on the roof occasionally breaks the silence.

If you knock on my door I may not even hear.

Mynet קיבוץ - "אני חי כמו כלב, מצייר כמו כלב" "אני כלב. חי כמו כלב. עד היום אני מצייר כמו כלב. אני חי באורח כלבי", אומר רן הררי (68), לשעבר חבר קיבוץ אפיקים. לאחר כארבעים שנים שם, הוא שוכר כיום דירה קטנטנה (24 מ"ר) בקיבוץ גשר, ערירי, ללא משפחה, שלא הקים מעולם. עוד אמנים מקיבוצים: הוא מצייר מאז היותו נער וברשותו אלפי עבודות המאוחסנות במשכן לאמנות בעין-חרוד, בביתו ומעט בארה"ב, שם ניסה בעבר את מזלו ונכשל. רן תופש את עצמו ככישלון ומדבר על כך בפתיחות ובבוטות, כשהוא יורה לכל עבר בלי לעשות חשבון לאף אחד. רן נולד בקיבוץ משמר הים, היום אפק, שהוריו היו בין מייסדיו ואחר-כך ממייסדי כפר-קיש, לשם עברו. "מכיוון שהייתי עצמאי מדי, ישבתי ארבע פעמים בכלא 4 ובכלא 6", הוא מספר.

למה אתה לא דואג לעצמך? רן הררי: "כי אני כלב". אתה גאה בזה? "לא. מה אתה מצפה מהתערוכה שלך? "לא מצפה לכלום". אז למה עשית אותה? "לא אני יזמתי. בתשובה לשאלה איך הוא מתקיים, אומר רן: "אני מתקיים, אבל באופן מאוד קשה. אולי בגלל איכות העבודות בעיניהם? "כשמדובר בשיפוט, לא רק העבודות קובעות. זה נעים לך? "אני כלב, חי כמו כלב, חוטף בעיטות כמו כלב, ופה ושם אני נושך ובורחים ממני". "זה שיש לי אנרגיה. Untitled.
