designer loves art..Joseph Paxton...169

for some people music and sculpture naturally comes together

this is Joseph Paxton

Living in London, he grew up in the farm land, so it shouldn't be a surprise that all his sculptures are mostly of animals. his work shows the animal while on movement, yet with this vitality you perceived form the pieces, if you look closer you will actually see how delicate they really are. which is what firstly attracted me to his work. he  is having quite a few exhibits around London and he is a musician.hope to see more of his work in the near future.

and no, i do not believe he is related to Sir Joseph Paxton, who i wrote 2 weeks ago, but let me know if i'm mistaken.

designer loves art... Gustave Eiffel...168

sometimes creating structures that will  remember your name for years do not make you excepted of the affairs of your times

this is Gustave Eiffel

born in France, he graduated from Ă‰cole Centrale des Arts et Manufactures. after that he focused on building bridges, but that did not exclude him from helping build the observatory in Nice with a rotating dome. He's big break was when he was asked to help create a structure that would support the copper skin of the statue of liberty  which was given to the USA. his next big project was the creation of the Eiffel tower, which during its creation it was looked as amusing for its height it really was not liked by the french, it took some years for the people of France to warm up to it and view it as art. unfortunately Eiffel also had lows, he was involved in controversy when a project in panama went bad, although he was not personally charged for anything hes honor and dignity where questioned. he lasted the last of his days studying aerodynamics.

designer loves art...Irina Vinnik...167

not everyone has the ability to create intricate artwork

this is Irina Vinnik

born in Russia. she studied architecture, at the moment, she illustrate books and even has her own calendar. she uses digital art,  pencil, pens & watercolor. in her webpage you can see her ability quite easily. i would say she is inspired by art nouveau, her work is intricate, visually attractive and her use of color is soft but empowering. hope to see more of her work soon.
