ART! - We Push Art Like Weight

Heeyeeyeaay. A big what’s up to all loyal ninjas! We’re just about as excited as you are that it’s friday again, and possibly slightly more excited than you that it’s ART DAY! once again. We’ve got some cool stuff for you today, including cut out masks (slightly arts and crafts day) and tight photos by Boogie! So keep your scrollers scrolling.

What you’re about to see is the art of Uwe Henneken, born in 1974 in Germany and currently working in Berlin.

Henneken’s work reflects upon the human condition; the search for meaning and fear of the unknown. When the work includes a figure it is placed in the painting as an awkward interloper, searching or confused. Because Henneken moves between and imitates different styles of painting, the figures are forced to grapple with the ever changing art-historical backdrops that surround them, leaving the viewer to consider what is aesthetically good, and contemplate the cyclical movement of cultural trends.

ART! - Animatus Digitomonus

Our good friends over at the ARARIO gallery (we love these guys) have put up a video of Hyungkoo Lee’s skeleton exhibition.

It’s cool because now you can finally see all the skeletons. the links have been updatedb (in the old posts) to try to provide you with the structure seeing as the multi-lingual is damn near impossible to comprehensible navigate. There’s a lot of cool stuff on their page though.

Today in ART DAY! we’ve got a whole bunch of cool stuff for you, from family guy exhibitions to nature paintings. You already know how we do so I don’t even have to tell you. To navigate through previous art days you can click any Friday in the calendar on our sidebar.

ART! - It’s the first of the monnnnth

FLO_8_LINCOLN_208714_0814.jpg

Thanks for joining us for our Friday art! We have a couple cool things today, including interesting new artists and a bunch of photo links. Also be sure to check out the beginner’s guide to escaping from Alcatraz.

The above work is by Salvador DalAA (come on people, get with it). The title is Gala Contemplating the Mediterranean Sea which at Twenty Meters becomes a Portrait of Abraham Lincoln which is definitely a mouthful and a half. It’s true though. And if you don’t believe me… look at the thumbnail.

If you click either the picture or the thumbnail you’ll come to a little cool interactive exploration of the work. Also, there’s a nice little article here. Enjoy, my ninjas, please.

The above work is a Wassily Kandinsky piece, which I’m sure you’re familiar with. But, if not, there’s also a nice article right here published by NY’s MoMA. Scroll down to read the rest of the awesome art posts. Enjoy!

Well it’s Friday again, and you all know what that means for myninjaplease! If you don’t know, it means we’ve got some dope art for you. The preceding works are all gems of oil on canvas by Hafeez Shaikh, maybe best known for his calligraphy of the 99 names of Allah. These paintings are all taken from a series called Feelings. Check out his webpage, where you can buy his art, order prints… and even commission paintings!
