A Tehran Art University student looks at a painting by 20th century U.S. artist Jackson Pollock at Tehran’s Museum of Contemporary Art on June 19, 2010. Artists like Monet, Picasso and Warhol were considered revolutionary in their day, but their works were not much appreciated by the leaders of Iran’s Islamic revolution and many were kept out of view for decades. Now, one of the greatest collections of contemporary Western art — put together under a Western-leaning monarchy in pre-revolutionary Iran — is open to the public, with some works on display for the first time in more than 30 years.

:fast painting, with a lot of emotions, moves. .. deep expressions, war between d blue and d red. I don’t know maybe more then 10 times I enjoy his works in Pompidou Museum in France. I use to go there and enjoy d docs where is recorded Pollock and his process of creating, lots of conversations how he connect almost all o d elements that surround him  with expressing trough d brush with one single move. standing n a frond of his huge paintings it’s fantasy, maybe d best part of my life till now. He is considered a revolutionary painter and well known for his ‘drip’ paintings, that involved pouring paint onto large raw canvases on the floor. Pollock currently holds the title for the world’s most expensive painting ever sold, when David Geffen sold his “No.5, 1948” for $140 million through Sotheby’s in 2006.

.what else I wanted to write about today on my blog, as first day in d new year is this artist that I saw last year few times in my stream. I only saw before one piece from him, installation that was 3dimensional mirror of d realism nowadays [second from down].

:this post is about Gregory Euclide and his art works. It is possible you’ve never heard of Gregory Euclide. However, it is near impossible to believe you didn’t catch the cover of Bon Iver’s Calgary. The artist also held a solo exhibition at Denver’s David B. Smith and is currently part of groups shows at the Toledo Museum of Art and Hunterdon Art Museum.

:He is one of d most influential artist for 2011, lot of his master pieces will be part of d new contemporary history of art. He is pretty surreal in a moments, very unique and d art that he produce is thinkery indeed.

..Gregory Euclide’s work which, at a glance, looks like an elegant spill of paint but on closer inspection reveals a carefully executed diorama. Euclide’s inspiration is drawn from the land, but that is not to say he paints landscapes. “I know that I am simply using the landscape to reach something more complicated,” he says.
