Piero Manzoni Piero Manzoni (July 13, 1933 – February 6, 1963) was an Italian artist best known for his ironic approach to avant-garde art. Often compared to the work of Yves Klein, his own work anticipated, and directly influenced, the work of a generation of younger Italian artists brought together by the critic Germano Celant in the first Arte Povera exhibition held in Genoa, 1967. Manzoni is most famous for a series of artworks that call into question the nature of the art object, directly prefiguring Conceptual Art. His work eschews normal artist's materials, instead using everything from rabbit fur to human excrement in order to "tap mythological sources and to realize authentic and universal values". Biography Manzoni was born in Soncino, province of Cremona. His full name was Count Meroni Manzoni di Chiosca e Poggiolo. Self-taught as an artist, Manzoni first exhibited at the Castello Sforzesco in Soncino in August 1956, at the age of 23.

Trip Out on Art with Estela Cuadro’s Hallucinogenic Paintings « Art Installations « Mayhem & Muse Estela Cuadro’s personal art style is unique. She incorporates elements of spirituality, tribalism and psychedelia into each of her paintings to create scenes that are abstract yet contain hints of reality. Each painting is filled with a sense of movement and animation. It’s as though the artist was in the midst of a wild imagining, decided to pause the movie going on in her head and bring that imagery into the physical world through her artistic skills. Cuadro’s use of color is intriguing. She offsets bright colors against more modest hues so that the viewer’s eye is drawn to one or more focal points within the painting.

Outsider Art Now » MEHRDAD RASHIDI Untitled, u.d. © Henri Boxer Gallery Mehrdad Rashidi was born in the town of Sari in Northern Iran in 1963. At the age of 20 he fled Iran because of his strongly held political views and settled in Germany. In 2006, for no particular reason, he began to draw. He found it relaxed him and made him feel happy, he also thought of his homeland, his childhood and easier times in his life whilst he doodled on any piece of paper that came to hand. Using old notebooks, envelopes, shopping receipts and discarded advertising pamphlets, he gradually, in what seems to be an obsessive and compulsive surge of creativity, began to produce an extraordinary, and hauntingly beautiful body of work.
Tom Stogdon Sculpture Tom was born into a fourth generation of greengrocers in Bloomsbury, London and worked in the fruit trade until 1998. His first ventures into sculpture began by making elaborate pieces using fruit and vegetables, and then gradually progressed into using slate and metal. His experiments with stone and the wearing influence of water have very much dictated the direction of his work in the last few years. Repetition and movement are recurring themes but always with a strong sense of calm. The pieces vary in size and stature, but each is made up of many smaller component parts, which are in turn wrestled into a larger space.

Marina Abramović - 2013 AP MHS Research Papers To the unknowing and/or unsuspecting viewer, the works of performance artist Marina Abramović can be both utterly shocking and totally captivating, often at the same time. While her work ranges in extremity, common threads throughout all of her pieces include physical intensity, emotional revealment, and a lingering sense of melancholy and sadness; whether she is violently throwing herself against a wall or simply sitting motionless in a wooden chair, her and her work have been known to evoke fierce emotions and even tears in an assortment of audiences. Abramović’s work is that of self-abuse and self-discipline, excessive punishment and great endurance. Known for the often unbelievable and ridiculous lengths some of her pieces have reached, Abramović in her performances erases the past and eradicates the future, and she champions the present and the “now” as time slows down for her and her audience. flowers, and wire” with which they were instructed to use any way they wished (Scott).
