Blogging 101:The Creatives That I Love
Well today, I just wanted to share a few artists that I love. I think their work is amazing and I would definitely have any of their pieces in my home, but for now the dream sits in my bucket wish list (prints mind you lol!). I am not art expert, I just know I love colour and I love art, photography and design. I discovered these artists at different times but as soon as I discovered them, that was it, I was sold:-)
The first was a child prodigy called Akaine. I watched a TV documentary about her life a good few years ago and at the time she was around 8 years old or so. No one taught her to draw or paint she just had the most amazing and inspiring gift, that was at a level beyond her years. There are so many I love, but the one that first impacted me was ‘Wonder’ which she did at the age of 8. The Power Of Prayer, Regeneration, Found, The First, Young Sage, oh my word they are simply stunning!
This is her website for you to see for yourself.
Another one for me is Ben Heine. Once again self taught his work just mesmerised me. I just find myself looking and looking. Pencil vs Camera and Digital Circlization are the ones. His use of perspectives just play with my head. Each to their own, but once again see for yourself.
My final joy is a photographer Peter Lik . I came across his work quite by accident really, but once again, his use of colour, perspective and his Black & White shots of Towns & Cities, are something else, and I just say wow when I look at them!
I find these artists inspiring. I love the gifts that they have. For me they chased and honed their dreams into the incredible levels skill they now work in. I think their work is time less and will continually grow in popularity, as more and more people discover them outside the rich and famous over the years.
