Poured on the Floor

Much to my mother’s dismay, I’m pretty sure at five years old I was dumping paint on my kitchen floor while shouting “Look mommy, art!”  Though my work needed some refining, pour painting apparently has an edge in the art world, far beyond my childhood kitchen. Greenwich Village native, Holton Rower, is the artist of these colorful and eye […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Light Up My Life

Between LED screens, shop windows, and the tip of the Empire State Building, New York City does not exactly lack nighttime illumination.  However, through “video mapping” technology, lights are now animating the city streets in new ways.  Though I haven’t witnessed any of these projections in New York, I’ve come across them in various other […]

Ever thought about collecting art?

Though I’ve never collected art (yet!) and cannot claim to be knowledgeable at all about that world, this seemed like a handy little guide for getting into art collecting. “Tips to Starting a Collection” from The Wall Street Journal Several of the author’s points here on collecting ring true to me.  For instance, “buy what […]

Terrywood

Terry Richardson’s first solo exhibition, aptly titled “Terrywood,” opened last weekend in Los Angeles and will run until the end of March. While I’ve never cared for tabloid culture, or who’s who in Hollywood, Richardson’s lens brings to life an area so plastic and commercialized I can’t help but find myself excited. Richardson, a force […]

Backwoods Gallery Presents Usugrow

One thing I believe unwaveringly, and will never, ever doubt, is that the Japanese know how to do what others have started better then they could’ve imagined. My affinity for the Japanese punk and metal scene as well as movies and art is quite high and upon discovering the artist Usugrow it’s hit a new […]

What is Outsider Art?

I love this piece about outsider art, written after the Outsider Art Fair hit New York the weekend of January 28th-29th.  If we need a pithy definition of outsider art, it refers to “art created outside the boundaries of official culture” (Wikipedia), such as art by self-taught, mentally disabled, or folk artists.  But as the […]
