designer loves art...Will Ryman...173

you can run, but you cant hide

this is  Will Ryman

born in NY he comes from a family if artist, and although he tried to get away from it, he understood it was his calling to he went for it. lately 2 of his exhibitions come to mind. and by which he might be quickly recognized. first his installation of "flowers" in NYC and his installation "America". he works in big scales, part of it i believe it see show a child view . but was well as a contradiction, you have a flower made of steel, representing something alive  that from a lifeless material. which let me to think about all those plastic flowers used in decoration...

designer creates...01

so designer creates will be a little experiment, it will showcase something that i did or are in the process of making, it can include drawing, painting or what ever im doing at the moment.

this time im starting with drawing, ive just started a drawing class, and though its all the way from the beginning its im talking it as a refresher, every teacher always teaches something different. and its always good to go back to your roots and the basics.  my teachers name Mario Parra and everything has been done in an 2 hr class.

lets see how this goes....

designer loves art...Lucas Simoes...171

sometimes what we study changes our perceptions

this is Lucas Simoes

living in San Paulo, his background is in architecture and design.  and this has changed his view of art, drawing and sculpture. so he uses known materials such as magazines to deconstruct and reconstruct over that bu burning, forming, cutting, between other techniques. he is attracted to strangeness and if he can make this strangeness beautiful, he as achieved his purpose  he has exhibited  all around the world. personally some of his work i enjoy and like the complexity he takes his work to. but others not so much.  hope he continues with his work.

designer loves art...Tamara de Lempicka...170

life sometimes takes very drastic turns

this is Tamara de Lempicka

born in Poland or Russia  she was exposed to French masters since very young thanks to her grandmother. in her life time she was quite a traveller  part because of her life and another part trying to run away from upcoming wars such as WW2. her style is quite elegant and colourful  yet you can see traces or art-deco. she was quite well known during her time in Paris, but later moved on to the US and live her old age in Mexico. her most popular work was done during the late 20's but her style became softer in time and it was close to impossible to go back to that at an advanced age.
