Self-taught painter, with all the imaginary, the spontaneity and the simplicity that goes with it, is at the center of his work. It is not surprising to know that unique style and his personal artistic vision have been approved unanimously. his artwork have been displayed in the most florida art galleries. he consistently created portraits and abstract forms in various media reliefs, collages, painted cutouts, sculpture in the round,. Often given a humorous touch, his works contain elements of organic form while retaining their essential abstraction , although it is clear that he belonged to a family of talents. His paintings, executed in brilliant colors and with an uncanny mastery of detail, are filled with strangely animated objects, bizarre shapes, and monstrous, amusing, or diabolical figures however, is obscure and has consistently defied unified interpretation. odinel clearly had an interest in the grotesque, the diabolical, the exuberant, and the macabre. He also may have been one of the few caribbean. painter to depict scenes of everyday life, although often with a strong element of the bizarre. influenced by the art of jacob lawrence,Vincent van Gogh,Degas Edgar,Jean-Michel Basquiat
I am a street photographer in Milano. I graduated at Civica Scuola di Fotografia of Milano in late 90s. Giovanni Chiaramonte was my teacher and presented my first personal exhibition when I was a student. He's still a friend of mine and always encourages me to show and submit my works. After graduating at I.U.L.M. - Milano I was editor at Duel, the movies magazine directed by Gianni Canova, and I co-wrote Enciclopedia del Cinema Garzanti. In 2001 Duel published my portfolio Polufloisboio – deeply resounding, about archeological architecture in Greece as memory of a glorious past in contrast with a prosaic present. I attended to a Master of Fotografia del Territorio at Politecnico di Milano. I worked as interiors photographer, then as still photographer in tv fictions. After a Master of Cinema at Scuola del Cinema di Milano I started to work as assistant director and that's my job since ten years (you can see my professional profile at http://it.linkedin.com/pub/pasquale-mascia/8/90b/837). I’m deeply inspired by American photographs of the Thirties (Evans, Lange, Weston) and by the work of Lee Friedlander. I’m linked to Italian school of landscape photography of Eighties and Ninenties, (Basilico, Cresci, M. Jodice, Ghirri, Chiaramonte) passing through a master as Paolo Monti… even if I dislike tripod, with medium format cameras too. I realized various black and white portfolios. I'm interested in transient aspects of town: under construction urban areas drawing provisional itineraries and facades, shadows blades as temporary borders and doorsteps, paper faces looking from city walls as prisoned, speechless gods; angels in town embodied in statues and people. You can find these themes in photos one and five, selected from my portfolio Milanolabile – temporary city, 60 fiber based paper prints from medium format black and white negative film. Photographs four is from the portfolio Calabrolucane. I constantly photograph South Italy as a land of memory and mystery, as you can see in photograph two too, taken from Otranto, a portfolio dedicated to the most eastern town in Italy. Photographs three is from Polufloisboio – deeply resounding. I use different film formats: 35mm, 6x6cm, 6x7cm, panoramic (24x54mm). I print by myself my portfolios, but I rely on professional fine art labs for committed prints. I work with instant films too, Polaroid (600 and Image) and Fuji (Instax). In polaroids urban and natural landscapes are like a theatre scenery, artificial elements are more real than natural ones, representations of places confuses with the real ones, reflections discover spaces of mystery, illusion and dream. Fuji cold colors and Instax format inspire me a less dreamlike and more documentary mood.

je peins depuis plus de 40 ans, aujourd'hui j'enseigne le dessin et la peinture, ma technique préférée est l'huile mais là j'ai décidé d'exposer quelques croquis d'aquarelle, sorte d'exercice qui me plait beaucoup.
Infographiste et coloriste, spécialisée dans l'illustration et la colorisation d'ouvrages, je vis et travaille à Marseille. Le désir de peindre m'anime depuis toujours. Plus que le mot, l'image est un langage essentiel pour moi, elle est ma force d'expression et d'échange. Mon travail interroge intuitivement et sans relâche la complexité de l'existence. L'analyse de mon ressenti, me pousse à chercher en moi, l'arène où se défient les manifestations de mon vécu. De ces manifestations je prélève des sensations et des réflexions aussi intenses que furtives, que je transpose en images. Avec les formes et les personnages de mes tableaux, j'écris la chorégraphie d'un "moi intérieur" dans lequel je fouille inlassablement.
Je me suis intéressé à la peinture en ayant une prédilection pour les portraits "art body" qui dans leurs attitudes, leurs couleurs et contrastes, nous provoquent de l'émotion d'art. Réels ou surnaturels ou parfois un mélange des deux, en trompe l'oeil, je vous invite à découvrir leur face cachée et à les dévisager.J'ai reproduis toute cette oeuvre d'après des photos.
ABOUT ME I am john, artist and compositor. .I’ve been a photographer for 10 years.Although formally trained and qualified in the visual arts. I've seen many different roles over the years. All of this diversion was a wonderful learning experience, perhaps a necessity, in leading me back to where I find myself today. I've come full circle, returning to what I love best.I believe artists should continually challenge themselves and experiment in order to progress creatively and to keep ideas fresh and vital. People are obsessed with celebrities, I'm taking these personally meaningful icons and create something more beautiful, The way that the objects are depicted can evoke a wide variety of emotions to people. I used photographs as references – those i got from newspapers, magazines and from the internet – as the basis of paintings but that doesn't make the snaps themselves. I am collecting images from wide variety of mediums and putting them together and giving a new meaning
