The Colorful Art Palette: Week 11 - Pictures, Pictures, and More Pictures... The Great Pumpkin Contest has some very creative pumpkins on display. If you haven't been to Bradley this week to see all the pumpkins, no worries!! I will be posting pictures on next weeks blog. Dollface: Bizarre Portraits Made from Repurposed Toy Parts by Freya Jobbins Using dismembered plastic parts from old dolls and other toys, artist Freya Jobbins assembles these exceedingly strange portraits of people and pop culture icons. Chances are when viewing these you fall firmly into one of two camps: the highly amused or the highly disturbed. Regardless, it’s hard to deny the incredible amount of labor that goes into each piece, from the exploration of form and the use of color to make each anatomical amalgamation. Born in Johannesburg, South Africa and raised in West Sydney, Jobbins is influenced in part by Guiseppe Archimboldo’s fruit and vegetable paintings as well as Ron Mueck’s oversized humans. You can see more freaky faces over in Jobbin’s online gallery and on Facebook. (via Juxtapoz, FastCo)
“Face Up” to the Joys of Prismacolor Watercolor Pencils Shelley Minnis, Prismacolor Artist and Consumer Specialist recently travelled to Barcelona and one of her stops included visiting the Picasso Museum in Barcelona. Shelley was so inspired that she wanted to try her hand at Picasso’s famous style and shared her process with us! See she tackled Picasso and the joy of working with Watercolor Colored Pencils! Picasso was an amazing artist whose work spanned over seven decades. His art included drawing, painting and sculpting, often depicting images of women. His passion and willingness to bend and break the “classical rules” of art often made his works controversial, and some of his works in the Cubist style seemed very abstract in their approach.
