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.

Photoshop skills + political wit = my ninja

For years now, Micah Wright has been making posters for his ‘Propaganda Remix’ project.AA All in the style of WWII-era propaganda posters, the art covers a wide array of political topics, all with a special touch of sarcasm.AA Of course, there are some duds, but the good ones in the mix make perusing the project pretty entertaining overall.

Dr. Milly Freeman Golonka

Continuing in the fine tradition of Friday art on www.myninjaplease.com…

"My paintings are expressionist, some are completely abstract, and some much more representational.AA My paintings often have surrealistic elements.AA Because they are paintings, all are inventions, and some can be grouped as ‘fantasy.'"

"My recent paintingsAAAAgroup mostlyAAin three types: woman (or women) series; still life; and environments. Because all my recent paintings are set in my own invented environments, types may overlap."

"The woman series is pretty much self-explanatory.AA They can be narrative, hinting of surrealism."

"My invented still life and environment series are based on real plant and flower forms, sometimes contrasting to geometric forms such as circle, semicircle, edge, line."

"I paint with acrylic on both canvas and fine art paper, such as Arches. The drawing on this site was made with colored markers."
