designer loves art.. 45.. Walt Disney

since this week was my birthday i decided to write about a personal
favorite cartoonist. I admire him because he was able
to construct a wonderful and fantastical world which still inspires
both adults and kids.

this is Walt Disney

Born the 5th of December in the usa, he came form a family of humble
income and one of the 4 boys in his family.
he was an innovator and i might even say father of the modern
animation. his first cartoon was called "crazy plane"
but the most recognized one is "Steamboat Willie".
i believe he deserves all the praise that is send his way and i
admire the strength and the believe he had on his own dream.

designer loves art...44...Jan Hendrix

let's see what Monochrome and Nature mean;
-Monochrome: describes paintings, drawings, design, or photographs in one color or shades of one color
-Nature: the external world in its entirety
ok now mix them together...
this is Jan Hendrix
born in Holland he has lived in some European countries but has settled in Mexico since 1978.
his inspiration and his only subject is nature. he not only works in graphic art, but has ventured into architecture, bringing his simplistic organic forms in.
he distinguishes form others by his monochromatic color scheme and outgrown proportions of little thing, like leaves, shells, stones & trees.
I had the opportunity to see his "storyboard" exhibition, while working in MARCO, I believe it's one of the exhibitions I most enjoyed and loved to give a tour of.

designer loves art...41...Edouard Manet

how many of us have gone against our teachers wishes, and have been completely disregarded and harshly criticized by them?
this is Edouard Manet
born in France he was under the tutelage of Thomas Couture who was one of his most harsh critics. but instead of being discouraged Manet proceeded with
his vision of what a painting should be. his most important and recognized works created a scandal at his time.
also as a friend of Monet he became one of the supporter of the impressionists. though his style was more refined and not as strong he became more influenced by it by the end of the 1870's .

designer loves art...40...Diego Rivera

one of the most recognized painters of Mexico, and husband to one of the most famous female painters of México as well...
this is Diego Rivera
from Guanajuato Mexico. he started drawing since the age of 3, and got the opportunity to study in México city as well as in Europe,although I really care little for his personal life, he is one of the most important muralists of his time.
his political subjects as well as cultural subjects of the time. made him create murals in Mexico, and the USA. his view of political subjects is sometimes satirical and his cultural subjects are even a bit harsh sometimes, but in the end I believe he did a good job of representing and capturing the time period he lived in.

of Mexican origin he studied in the UNAM at the national school of plastic arts. he's in one of the most recognized living sculptor in the world.
the majority of his work is easily distinguished because of its strong geometric forms as well as solid colors usually made or cement or steel.

designer loves art...38..Yulia Brodskaya

writing words and even drawing on the paper is quite simple and we all do it.
now... how about drawing and writing with paper.....

this is Yulia Brodskaya

she has the ability to make such works of arts with strips of paper, I have tried this technique before but to get to this skill level it would take lots of paper,
time and most importantly patience.
with a clear concept in mind she has been called on to male product publicity.
maybe we should all start thinking about recycling paper this way... imagine what could be possible.

designer loves art...37...Fra Angelico

not many can have two professions and be so devoted in one that the other is the result of the other.
this is Fra Angelico
Fra Angelico an Italian Dominican friar, usually worked on frescos, altarpieces and panes always being religious subjects.
he filled the convent of San Marco and the Chapel of the Sacrament in the Vatican.
But what is most important is that we start to see the initiatives of perspective in art,
though rough and a bit wrong proportions we start to get an idea of depth.

Designer loves art...35... Tiziano Vecellio

in the branches of painting you'll find, religion, portraits and mythological. being proficient in one can make ones career
now being proficient in all makes you a master
this is Tiziano Vecellio
he was not only named the official painter of the republic but also considered a genius in his time.
the movement and color that he inscribed in each of his subjects separated him from other painters
and his free brushstroke changed the way oil painting are used.

push pins.. colorful, useful, i'm sure you see one at least once a day. but what do you use them for?
this is Eric Daigh
born in California, he has a great concept of color and has ability to see things in a molecular or at a pixel level.
most of his art you can get the feeling of it in 3 levels.
1st level -pushpin level, you can see the pushpins.
2nd level, you can see the forms but still get a sense of the different color push pins
3rd you get a picture like image, correct colors and shadows.

designer loves art...31..Michelangelo

the David, the XVI chapel, the pieta.... sculpture, painter, poet and architect are professions accredited to him, one of the great Italian masters
this is Michelangelo
his great works showcase marble coming to life and incredible frescos and even though i'm am in awe of his David , and pieta I'm not a fan of his women,
you can tell that he barely studied a woman's body and structure, making his nudes a bit grotesque.
none the less his shadowing, his gift to bring to life marble and tell stories though frescos is incredible.
not bad for someone who didn't consider himself a painter.
