The Street-Art of P183


The mysterious street artist known only as P183 let little to be known of himself.  Creating eye catching pieces of art throughout Moscow. Acquiring the nickname "Banski" to some, drawing comparison to Britain's Banksy. His  mural-style graffiti may be where they get such a comparison. Both P183 and Banksy share  well thought out undertones (which some may have viewed as political) kept their identities closely guarded and are painters of the night. What separates them is their unique styles. Like any graffiti artist no surface is unpaintable or "safe", median dividers, walls, even on bridges. Also undertaking fairly ambitious mixed media installations.

“If I die tomorrow, I can at least feel that I have left something real behind.” -P183

There is a place like no place on Earth. A land full of wonder, mystery, and danger! Some say to survive it: You need to be as mad as a hatter. -Mad Hatter

Sometimes a piece of Art is closer then you think. It could very well be living inside of you favorite book. There is no doubt that I love all types of fairy tales and have a pretty extensive collection of them. Inside some of those books hold beautifully ornate illustrations. Why wouldn't you/I want to display them in any fashion. With that in mind I grabbed one (of my many) favorite books and made an Art print.

Locked inside a frame to sit on my desk, to stare at when my mind needs a break from the task at hand.

Morning November

Oh neglected little Blog, how I've missed you so. With neglect comes an update. Bringing forth more Art as I update everyone on my journey.
Not sure how the weather is around other parts of the world but in my backyard this November it's sunny and bright. The air isn't crisp, it really doesn't feel like fall at all. So with the sun on my back and a spray can in hand, I felt the need to update some furniture.

                                                   Before                                After                     

Looks like I have the Midas touch.  This little update didn't cost a thing since the table was on hand and I had the Gold spray paint, it took 2 coats and is ready to be set in its new dwelling place.
Don't be afraid of change or color. If you don't like the outcome it can easily be change to another color.

What happens when an artist gets inspired ? A spark ignites and she begins to become flooded with ideas. Of course I have to set these ideas into motion but there has to be a starting point somewhere.  Walking into museums always sends a creative surge through my body. Not all artists are procrastinators. Although it does seem as if they leave work incomplete or maybe that's as finished as they see it. Either way it was nice to take a break come back and be rejuvenated. This picture of Art work is by Keith Harring and hangs in the MOMA in NYC.

Wind & Raindrops

Blues Music played as this Thursdays night Wind and Rain Competition went into swing. Seems fitting that Spring has sprung early and although we haven't gotten much rain, the photography, mixed media and paintings said other wise. Psychedelic Rain photography, thunderstorms and even a painting of a girl in rainboots set the tone for the night.

Banksy at the Oscar's?


This Sunday Feb.27 20011 the Oscars will set stage. Snuggled on the sofa Sunday night, hit the Dvr button for the Simpsons. Sitting through the episode and as it gave it's nod to the upcoming Oscar's, there it was "Bansky's" signature. This has been his second appearance on the Simpsons the mysteriously talented artist has made on the show. The first time was when he made a controversial intro for the show back in Oct 2010.
Gorilla street Artist Banksy is one of the nominees for Best Documentary Feature, for his film Exit Through the Gift shop. In the film French immigrant from Los Angeles Thierry Guetta captures his obsession with street art and documenting every waking moment of his experience. More about the film can be found here
Now I really will be watching the Oscar's to catch a guessing glimpse of the artist who doesn't make public appearances, has never had his face seen and voice unheard. At one point he even asked the Oscar's if he can accept his award is disguise. A crowd of people with masks of monkeys covering their faces and only one monkey reaching for the award. In turn the Oscar officials turned that idea down in fear of future copycats. Who knows in what form he will appear but I will be watching and hoping for the win.
Banksy did respond saying "This is a big surprise. I don't agree with the concept of award ceremonies, but I'm prepared to make an exception for the ones I'm nominated for. The last time there was a naked man covered in gold paint in my house, it was me."

Mixed Messages Art show

Artis: KPaul

Torn pages from dictionaries with painted ladies and other love notes hung on the wall. Mixed media Art pieces dressed the walls for the Mixed Messages Art Show. Whimsical old pendants hung glued to canvas's like jewelry pieces, dressing the art work of KPaul one of the artists featured at the show. My friend and I read the quotes and poems to and of lovers. The guests in attendance were asked to enter a raffle to win a mini mixed media art piece. As the winner was being announced I heard my name. How funny it was in winning " The Lady Madonna." throughout my home is mini art pieces of Isis and Horus (Mary & Jesus). Now this little masterpiece shall hang and fill yet another space on my wall.
