_beautiful monsters, silhouettes and some airplanes

“Many things come to me in my trips,”

“I see myself as a kind of anthropologist. I do field work, I collect things and take notes — and then the ideas start to come out.”

José Bedia

This art work impressed me, it’s really something that fits my taste. Beautiful combination of bit naive art painting combined with street/ urban expression but also symbolism, sculptures, objects. ..installation?! Kind of reflecting few levels of his spiritual journey.

Postmodern indeed 🙂

 

:made by José Bedia this installation is called “Figure Who Defines His Own Horizon Line” & is part of d the exhibition “Transcultural Pilgrim: Three Decades of Work at the Fowler Museum at UCLA

:what’s d story about u can hear very good directly from d author José Bedia. Great explanation btw:

.

:because I saw work from this artist for first time I just decide to make a little research so I could know about d signature that he leave in d arts nowadays, and damn right he is good. Here is small collection of art pieces shown from him in different galleries, places.. so it would be easier for me_and u to recognize d periodicals of his art work.

José Braulio Bedia Valdés [born January 13, 1959 in Havana, Cuba] is a Cuban painter. Bedia studied at the Escuela Nacional de Bellas Artes “San Alejandro” and then finished his art studies at the Instituto Superior de Arte in Havana.

His artistic work has been presented in several individual shows, such as ‘”Final del Centauro”‘,1989 , Castillo de la Real Fuerza, Havana, Cuba. In 1994 was presented “José Bedia: De donde vengo”, in the Institute of Contemporary Art, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, U.S.A. Also exhibiting at “InSite94: A Binational Exhibition of Installation and Site Specific Art”. San Diego Train Station, San Diego, California.

:He uses the dark beasts and figures that dominate the canvas or the space. The other elements I already mention in first part of d post.

The Things That Drag Me Along

.

:I pretty much like this intervention in public space, he definitely make change of d whole idea for d place, brings vibration in d environment that is tripped. maybe bit in a dark way, like from d other side, d one that we all want to skip it. ..but still, d print is not so strong as d metaphor itself, anyway esthetically transferred very powerful.

.illusion in d space, dreams in d air ::: can I crash here?

Is it time for sleeping? And for optical illusion?

:I like d work of this artist, he is playing with d perspectives, with d dimension, shapes, forms mostly always. 🙂

.the things that d visitors find in his works are kind of special feelings created cause of d play that he is doin’. The Swiss artist Phillippe Decrauzat has just collaborated with Bally on a covetable range of accessories. This work here is d ready made result that is just breathtaking for me. This experimentally clean spaces attract me somehow more then anything else.

I usually catch with some blogs and for me is pretty annoying that the people only share d picture with bit info, that in some cases is even lost. ..so, we do non-respectable task with sharing them like that. I prefer to read some opinion about the forms and arts that are catchy for Us, and this one have d proper look for that.

Engaging space, minimalistic forms, trippy environment. ..like part of some white dream. And d door, metaphor for so many meanings. Changing d angle in d room, u change d way of seeing d things, once u’ve moved to other place ur eyes are attracted from different light, shadows etc.

:crystal clouds or d great #installation .Floe’

Since I remember myself clouds have been one of d biggest inspiration for me. When I start drawing illustrations with wooden colors d clouds were d first thing that pop out on my paper. After I start doin’ d street art & graffiti d clouds were my background for most of d letters_ ‘word graffiti I have done. ..even in my poetry there are different stories and scenes where I use d clouds as motive or inspiration.

I’ve done some #art installation.s and scene designs where I used cotton to improvise forms that associate with clouds and give d metaphor for that cloudy atmosphere in d environment.

This what we see in this series of photography is amazing light installation from Nicholas Folland. Nicholas Folland is a restless artist who is currently holidaying in his birthplace, Adelaide. He is a Samstag Scholar who studied within the research program at the Piet Zwart Institute Rotterdam and the University of Barcelona, completing a Masters Degree at The University of Sydney in 2009. He has lived and worked in Australia and Europe, and examples of his practice are held in the collections of the National Gallery of Victoria, Art Gallery of South Australia and the Museum of Contemporary Art Sydney, as well as University and Regional Galleries and private collections internationally.

He also shows with Ryan Renshaw Gallery in Brisbane and Karen Woodbury Gallery in Melbourne. Recent highlights for Nicholas include completing his Masters in Visual Arts from the University of Sydney last year. In 2004 he achieved national recognition with his inclusion in Australian Culture Now at the National Gallery of Victoria.

Floe:detail

The Adelaide-born artist hunts down chandeliers where he can find them – op shops, garage sales, and even eBay – to create these staggering installations. Sometimes older pieces aren’t in the best condition, so he rebuilds the lights (but, despite this tinkering, still counts these as “found objects”).

. ..anyway, whatever he use to make his masterpieces he use like first amazing concept and great way to express sometimes even surreal theatrical situations and scenes. If you want to see more from his works u can check his personal page [ Nicholas Folland ] or just google it there are a lot of articles about him 🙂

:we do like this #architecture!

Should we change our urban environment in more organic, human way..? membranes and molecular forms are d future of d architecture in d big cities. Very natural way of evolution. Chris Bosse: LAVA (Laboratory for Visionary Architecture) discusses and explain how he draws inspiration from the natural world and combines this with cutting edge computer modeling to produce innovative and sustainable buildings, installations and urban centers.

Very flexible way of work..brings more positive look of d urban spaces. Interventions in d space from that type are pretty necessary in our global society as we all re-evolve in a way were we think that d environment create part of our character. That what we see is reflecting in our constitution more that we are aware of it. Pretty good project/ idea I look forward for this sustainable future.
