designer loves art...Nicolas Régnier...210

Sometimes a move in location influences the style of an artist

this is  Nicolas Régnier

Born in Maubeuge both  painter and art collector and trader. he started training in Antwerp although it can be discussed if he was under the tutelage of Bartolomeo Manfredi or  Abraham Janssens or maybe both. He went to Italy in the 1615 and was a contemporary of Caravaggio and became the official painter of the Marchese Vincenzo Giustiniani. His style varied thought put his life. In the end he focused more in  historical and Mythological subjects as well as his decorations style became more detailed. In his later years he moved to Venice we he restarted trading antiquities and started his own art collections. Which is till recognized today. You can clearly see his style movements in his life. The richness of his color is something that I admire, as well as the softness of their features.

designer loves art...Tim Flach ...209

Sometimes it takes a picture to see the human in all living creatures

This is Tim Flach

Living in London, he also studied photography there although his first degree was in communication design. His models are animals, explore our relationship with animals. His subjects have an almost human quality. An engaging quality that gives you the feeling of them looking back at you. All trying to bring the question forward of what is our relationship with animals, how we have managed them to live in this human world and how we are molding the world around us. It is difficult to work with animals, so you only have a couple of shots with each animal in a time frame. With also the liberty of not knowing what the animal will bring to each photo-shoot.  I personally enjoy his work, not only does he bring a different perspective by taking the animal out of its natural habitat, but also by saving those little unexpected moments we get with any kind of animals. I hope to see more of his work in the near future.
