Artist Miler Lagos at MagnanMetz Gallery

HOME? After stumbling through some pictures from Miler Lagos last Exhibit (titled HOME) I must say, I really like the concept his art. The bright lighting and white wall background give work a contemporary vibe and then, further, making novels upon novels the main focal point of the photo provides the eye-catching elements of knowledge, […]

Ron Ulciny Does Sculptures

I really enjoy the use of different materials and the natural colors that are used in this sculpture. The wood of the bowling pin compliments the nature infused sub-sculpture inside of it; the sandalwood color of the pin really working for this sculpture due to the darker elements of the night time scene within the […]

Award winning photographer Nikolaj Lund, who is not only a specialist in classical music photography but also has a background in classical music, takes musicians outside of the confines of the music arena and photographs them with their instruments doing odd activities.

Yayoi Kusama is crazy but still going strong

Yayoi Kusama is still going strong at eighty-two years of age; the charmingly eccentric Japanese artist, who sold a painting for record-breaking $5.1 million in 2008 (highest for any living female artist at the time), has been granted a dizzying 14-roomretrospective by the Tate Modern in London. Personally I can’t help but admire Kusama; throughout her entire life, she has been a creative […]

Whitney Biennial Visit

Many of those who know me, know that I am not shy about stating the obvious. For instance: If you invite me to a party and the party is boring, I am not going to lie to you and say “It’s an O.K. party”, which will be the polite thing to say. I am going […]

Another Artist Does Spots

Before the entire world was seeing spots thanks to Damian Hirst, another artist, Yayoi Kusama, filled (with some help) just a small room with them, and achieved an entirely different effect.  In a current exhibit at the Queensland Gallery of Modern Art in Australia, children visitors are invited to place colorful dot stickers on any […]

Jarosław Jaśnikowski’s Marvelous World

I am not big fan of the surrealism movement, which includes artists such as  Salvador Dalí, Georges Limbour,  Joan Miró and  Marcel Duchamp, therefore when I was told by my friend, John McAllen, about his new obsession with artist, Jaroslaw Jasnikowsk, I was not phased. He kept insisting that I check out Jaroslaw’s work. He kept telling me about Jaroslaw’s use of imagery that […]

My Life in Art

Some of the most important objects by which I track my life are works of art.  They represent where I’ve been, what I’ve seen, what has interested me, who I was with, etc. I’ve been very fortunate to have traveled a good amount and to have seen some of the most amazing art collections in […]

The Art of Food

I love to eat and I love art (a common theme for most of us here at Artsnapper), therefore it was a nice treat when I stumbled upon the astonishing miniature food art created by artist Shay Aaron. Shay is an innovative artist who makes delectable penny-size art of food and food dishes. After admiring his […]

Perfect Picture or Perfect “Snap”

As many of you have heard Instagram was purchased by Facebook for 1 billion dollars. Yes, I did say BILLION not MILLION. Many people wonder why Instagram has became so popular and there are many hypothesis (i.e. user interface, sharing capabilities, etc) as to why this happened. I truly believe that their popularity and success […]

Shadow Art is Unreal!!!

I have never actually seen shadow art but by the look of these images, the art appears to require immense amount of creativity not only in the positionining of the materials used, the angle of the lighting but also in the images that are created. My favorite pieces are the ones that appear to be […]

Read. Make art. Repeat.

After art, my next great love is books, so naturally I was drawn to this collection of works of art inspired by literature.  They are part of a long tradition of different media influencing one another, from plays based on books and operas placed on plays to current movies based on novels, video games, and […]

Looking at art, up close and on my screen

When I look at paintings in a museum, I like to get so close (if the guard will let me) that I can see the texture of the paint on the canvas.  I like to understand the physicality and dimensions of a sculpture, and I like to walk into a gallery and feel completely overwhelmed […]

Murals for a modern world: Diego Rivera at MoMA

When I saw the Diego Rivera frescoes at the MoMA, what immediately came to mind was the timeliness of the exhibit.  The frescos were originally commissioned by the museum in 1931, during the Great Depression and a time of great social unrest in Rivera’s native Mexico.  And here we are, looking back at these frescos […]

The Mona Lisa in Spain?

I don’t have any personal investment in the Mona Lisa — don’t love it, don’t hate it, it is what it is — but as arguably the most famous painting in the world, I was surprised to see how little buzz there was surrounding the discoveryofitsearliestcopy. Art conservators at the Prado museum in Madrid have identified […]
