Thomas Kinkade A Peaceful Time
American painter Thomas Kinkade (Thomas Kinkade) was found dead in a few days their home in California , according to department spokesman said natural death . It is said that in the United States every twenty families have a home hung Thomas Kinkade (Thomas Kinkade) those disgusting fantasy figure , it makes me think of the whole world into the United States culture of waste ; while even more frightening is that from the "American Idol" , "Saw" series and group sex porn film is not only similar to those of garbage left by a commercial export objects , but also to pollution from Murmansk to Montevideo citizens.
PT Barnum aptly addressed this issue, " no one would ever spend money to belittle the American taste, " from Andy Warhol to Jeff Koons , the best American artists have been " developed " those had no interest in the arts and culture who earn millions of dollars of money. However, the U.S. is still Greil Marcus described the " old weird America " (Old Weird America), such as a full source of a variety of special tastes - from Mississippi chiefs to Ralph Stanley (Ralph Stanley), Watts Tower , live theater (Living Theater); while every generation who are distorting the essence of ideas between this howling .
Some people might say that consumerism is the problem, and if you carefully think about the upcoming Frieze Art Fair in New York with those kinds of " Weekend Art Fair " between actually not much difference - in the latter , it takes only $ 59 you can buy " starry Night " (Starry Night) high imitation works , they are in a warehouse by the South Korean immigrants in the pipeline processing complete.
Both have in common is the common American manufacturing , and is now self- crown on the " consumer " label . In most rational mammals, feed trough where the pigs are almost no better time to enjoy those things . They have done is spending - and neither do we . Even the harsh economic times we have failed to stop the great desire for consumption , waste and disposable culture because the retail price can be low to fit any kind of income level .
You can spend $ 10 to buy Thomas Kinkade paintings (Thomas Kinkade) paintings prints , you can also spend $ 10 million to buy his house. And I think it is the death of the artist's wealth will not soon end at Sotheby's ?

Grown up in the middle of Lang village , is surrounded by farmland and bamboo , as well as a large river and streams, there was a large creek before the big green lawn is our student's paradise , because in a group of children in the older Edith , so the king occasionally like a child , like the holidays with a group of children and puppies ride in the big patch of grass, sometimes fishing ( although only catch a play ) , sometimes lying on the grass looking at the sky or playing games , sometimes also see nearby foraging flocks of egrets flying silk screen. Once upon a time , into a verdant meadow gravel mining End large potholes , and now I do not know already become what he looks like , in short, is no longer beautiful , but before that beautiful picture is still imprinted in my mind.

Gradually understand why many people would choose to return to their own retirement so Lang familiar life, because Edith living in the field for a long time , and also began hometown but miss everything, even nostalgic before the summer do not have to blow fans day. Country life , etc. So my life experience, so for me it is also the countryside scenery painting special feeling fabian perez paintings , because that is what I have seen or ever look in daily life , although this painting above the southern Taiwan Mino views but in fact, near the former home of the central region scenery looks very similar to some places , and now the neighborhood has been greatly scenery is not the same , the same is often seen in the mountains and banana trees .

This is taken from an unfamiliar artist 's works , just take part scenery to paint , although the topic is " cow in the river near autumn landscape" , but did not draw the cow , so this picture is completed with the original a lot of difference . Autumn colors most people would like, but sometimes used as a painting flow in the cheesy, but some cheesy I still can not feel it , and yet trying to learn , feel , I think this is the real artist with me ordinary very different person now !

This is the first time out painting and the location is National Taiwan University to participate in several of our classmates Oil Painting for the first time , just looking busy enough to draw the subject matter , the teacher to observe a long time ago , and suggested that we do not draw Landmarks like the theme, finally decided to follow the teacher's advice , just take a part of scenery to paint , the first sketch though a bit overwhelmed, but still feel a lot of fun , hope to have the opportunity to work with many companions out painting . That only regret is that did not bring insect repellent , left hand was full of mosquito bites by black beans , will recover nearly a genius , can not stay long in the lake after careless .

Remarks ︰ This shared wrote a long time , although only a little shy to complete, but still more busy because a while ago, the relationship has been unable to find time to finish it early July once again take a trip to France , 17 On the evening before returning home Leonid Afremov paintings , and shortly after half a month time again , we have finally found a little time to complete, I do not think this is probably my longest PO articles for once !

Banksy is a famous name that you sign one of the most popular artists of Street Art , art that is performed in the streets of the city.

Not much is known of the origins of it , nor what type it is physically this artist except maybe that should be a boy born and raised in the Royal County of Bristol. I say this because Banksy has a special feature that is able to develop during his career, which is to remain anonymous. In fact, nobody in the world except for some very trusted friends knows his true face, or maybe just how high that number ports of shoes or what she eats on Thursday . For years they have tried to expose him , to photograph his face and know his true identity never succeed , however , and maybe he quietly came in the most important museums to leave his works hung alongside those of the great artists of the past. Also on the web , in his personal site on which leaves only the images of his work there is no need to enter anything (click on the name to visit  Jack Vettriano paintings ) .

The art of Banksy : his works speak for themselves.

Banksy through his great works of art left to sneak in museums , galleries or in the streets all over the world and making the best use of this characteristic to remain in the shadows has managed over the years to become known and to be appreciated , stimulating more and more a great passion and the "natural " curiosity on the part of all the people walking and "live" those roads . For this reason, as well as to have attracted many positive reviews , the artist has also become one of the most famous exponents of the Street Art Numerous supporters and the fans of Banksy expect every time forward to his next job that you never know where it may appear . We see above and below the images of his latest work , a project entitled " BETTER OUT THAN IN" which is building in the days of October in the city of New York and you will see that going on his website  Jack Vettriano Picnic Party painting .

Usually these are the images that are created with the technique of stencil art , a kind of mask inside a cropped image that is applied through spray and paintings on the walls of the streets and alleys of desolate , sometimes creates scenes materials details, for example by using objects that are modified or literally smashed as the famous phone booth murdered we see below. Banksy is a volcano of ideas and artistic talent that he needs to send us the sad , sad , absurd , curious , romantic reality.

In these works Banksy insert a background sometimes humorous, maybe a biting satire , scratching that make fun of politics, culture or traditional art, academic and critics . Almost always express to us his images of provocative messages , mistrust or protest to all the tragedies that causes the man . Tragedies such as wars , pollution of the earth or evil existential so-called " civil society " . Many of these works are really beautiful graphically , very expressive and well represent the true and real feelings of the people , this makes us understand why the artist Banksy is so loved .
