many artist are criticized allot, yet their real talent what that of teaching

this is Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres

born in France yet he also lived in Rome he was criticized allot yet he was a model teacher and administrator.
when he returned to France after the death of his beloved wife  he created some of his most admired work. he was acclaimed guardian of classical rules, yet his successors in calligraphy, were both Degas and Picasso.

designer loves art...Liu Bolin...95

can you hide in plain sight?

this is Liu Bolin

born and living in china, his whole concept is about how you can hide with a strategy,  as our ancestors did for survival. yet he goes in deeper to criticize what has come with the world today. his work is amazing, it must take hours to get one of this pictures, and a very patient person as well. his attention to detail is amazing; i wonder how much time it takes for you to find it?

designer loves art...Gustave Doré...94

not many people are able to create a scene with nothing but lines.

this is Gustave DorĂ©

born in France he is one of the greatest illustrators know. his recognised work are the bible and Don Quijote, between other works. his ability to display, volume, shadows, movement and detail on a white canvas with nothing more that dark lines is incredible. i would  think he would be more recognised that he is, but i hope he is re-discovered and studied as he should be.
