I’m big on abstract art.  I’m big on Georges Braque, and if only I was alive to shake his hand I would make every attempt to do so.  Everything in life has meaning, especially when meanings are distorted into view and produced to mean a different meaning to everyone.

I’m just big on this artwork as it has meaning to me in ways that you wouldn’t comprehend and as after looking at it, it will probably mean something radically different to you.  His biggest contribution to the history of painting was him helping to form the cubism movement.  As it is totally evident in most of his paintings.  Some of my favorite paintings are below.  Enjoy!

So I was recently scanning the web for some new art inspiration and fell across a few images and information located here.  It’s pretty awesome stuff and they ponder the question if it is art.  I think so, today’s modern acceptance of anything being art, is in fact art.  Another man’s trash is someone else’s trash right?  I did some research about Tim Nobel and Sue Webster(artistical pranksters of this exhibit).  Apparently, they are British, create some pretty awesome art, and are considered pranksters in the art world.  Now, if all that I posted is true or not, oh well, this is a blog and taken about my views from art, not who they are and information about them.  I just wanted some info as to who they are and some other stuff they have done.

Other than that, this is a cool little twist to the another man’s trash theory, and I’ll leave it up to you to decide if you like it.  I’ve actually been getting some response on older posts about artwork, and my range of views from old to new.  Read on, enjoy , Digg me, and let me know what you think!

Living in Pittsburgh, we recently had a big trial in the news.  Daniel J. Montano pleaded guilty to 79 criminal mischeif accounts and it is believed to have done almost $300,000 worth of damage to this area, and an estimated amount of $750,000 from San Fransico(were his mother lives) to Pittsburgh.  I’m all for his punishment because he acknowledged what he did was wrong and knows of the damage he caused to buildings.

Now for the punishement.  In all honesty I don’t think jail is good for this guy.  He is an artist, an amazing artist at that, and should be put to community service.  While during his jail time, I think he should be sent to community’s and parks around the area, and put his heavily artistic influence to use providing murals for community parks, the zoo, Kennywood.  Make him to characterized history timelines of events and have them on display.  Rehabilitation for this person would go lengths to provide insite into his mindset.  Instead of damaging a building with art.  Provide a community with good and creating art that everyone can be proud of.  These kids are amazing at what they do, and simply put, whatever the hell they do with a spray can to make it so perfect is mind boggling to me.  As well as the fact that these can be done in a few hours if not less, as to avoid detetection is awesome.  But, I think its time to start showing these artistic displays off for the greater good, instead of revolting against the masses.

Since my Dali post is getting so many hits, I figured I should go ahead and write about another artist that I really dig, and try and pull alot of inspiration from when I try and create something worthwhile.  Andy Warhol being a local native of Pittsburgh immediatly grabbed my attention as a child because I felt that I instantly knew him(a sense of proudness I guess being born and raised around Pittsburgh…I was young…what can you expect…).  But, I grew up looking at his pictures thinking they were nice, full of color and crazy ideas, I just thought he was breaking the mold as to what other artists have done.  Now that I realize most of his drawings/painitngs/conceptions were all most likely drug induced, I still think they are amazing.

The 60’s were quite the time I would assume, and would like to for a day go back and just experience them.  Hell, I would love the fact that gas was practically free and everything was atleast a little simpler then.  But Warhol’s art is good enough to take me back and provide me an experience in American Pop Culture.

I guess I get more wrapped up in what the feeling was behind the art rather than the art itself, I should have taken a psychology course or something, just to dig deeper into the minds, and explore the thought processes of how things come about in life and the values and lessons they teach the artist.

The process is certainly fun, I enjoy reading and writing about these artist’s and how life has been handeled and constructed around them.  It certainly brings in a few more dimensions of our world.
