Artist Julianna Menna

Once an artist starts out on a career vector, it usually becomes his or her primary focus of attention. Mastery of any craft takes years of hard work and discipline. When I set out to be a fine art painter, I put everything I had into honing my drawing and painting skills to be the best that I could make them. I spent years going from water color, to acrylic, to oil, striving to get better with the journey through each new medium. Painting became my great artistic love and I never could have imagined doing anything else. Nothing would deter me from the course I had set, until one day, I fell head over heels in love with the magical art of tattooing.

Interview with the artist David Stoupakis

Q: How long have you been an artist? Please tell us a little about your chosen medium.

It was at that time I started pursuing my own personal art career in full force. more » “Interview with the artist David Stoupakis”

Interview with the artist Kikyz1313

Through my work I am trying to build an emotional momentum, one that rouses the intellectual exercise of questioning one’s vision of reality. While looking at my artwork, the viewer will begin to experience a series of diametrically opposed thoughts and emotions. Initially they may feel overwhelmed by the obsessively intricate and highly detailed forms, the composition, the technical skill and the pleasant color vibrations but as an analytical shift in perception slowly overtakes them, the viewer unwittingly grasps the artwork’s inescapably wretched and subversive subject matter.

This new clarity forces the observer to reengage with the work and rethink their initial opinions until, in some way or another, the shift takes place and the observer’s perception of natural things expands to include elements such as disease and death itself. more » “Interview with the artist Kikyz1313”
