Other worlds in pastel-candy paintings with mysterious subjects

Syd Bee is an artist from Seattle whose work seems to have been torn straight from the world of dreams. Bee uses rich, pink tones in many of his works, exploring dark themes and emotions, and the combination of these opposite elements gives his works a surreal, otherworldly quality. This dichotomy offers the viewer to plunge deeply enough into terribly beautiful art, while exploring the story told in each play.

Sid is a very talented American contemporary artist, creating vivid oil paintings of figures that often seem to exist in a fabulous state, somewhere between life and fantasies. This artist lives and works in Seattle, where she can always be found in her own studio, surrounded by things that inspire her to do an excellent job: a library of fairy tales, comics and two fat cats. In addition to creating her fabulous compositions bordering on magic, drowning in pink colors, Sid is also actively involved in other areas, for example, she was featured on the cover of The Stranger and created cover art for comic books for Adventure Time.

The world of childhood of the XIX century in the paintings of Gaetano Cierizi

Many viewers are interested in everyday painting of old masters of the past centuries, who knew how not only to reliably capture the life of their people in the smallest details, but also to stop moments in the freeze frame mode.

Transferring the life of ordinary workers and their children in all its colors and shades to his canvases, the artist left a magnificent gallery of paintings, which is the clearest evidence of that distant time.

7 beloved women by Pablo Picasso

“If he had not become an artist, he would have become Don Juan,” once said a friend of Pablo Picasso, the French playwright Jacques Cocteau. And it’s hard to disagree with him. You can write a lot about the views of the artist (creative, smoothly flowing into sharply political), family and friends (who have had a significant impact on his success), but this review will focus on the role of women in the work of Pablo Picasso.
In many ways, the stages of the artist’s work (blue, pink, cubic, etc.) were accompanied by the woman who was next to him during his life. To be more precise, it was the woman who led him to one or another stage of the creative path with the totality of her styles and directions. As Picasso himself admitted: “Life is extended by work and women.” Continue reading
