The art world is so extensive, new artists are born every day. As Joseph Beuys and Pablo Picasso stated, everyone is born an artist, it’s the ones who maintain their abilities who grow into the form of an artist. The amount of people who do is immense, therefore I decided to start a new column on this blog, namely Artcyclopedia. It’s a way of storing my personal favourites in one place. I will do my best to share an artist that I admire once in a while.
Sometimes images speak louder than words, that’s why these posts will consist mostly out of images. This might even encourage you to bring out the inner researcher and search the internet or books for more information about the artist.
A contemporary artist who managed to master portraying people is Hope Gangloff. Not only the use of colours but also the way subjects are positioned on the canvas immediately spoke to me. Every image shows a use of different patterns accompanied with calm surfaces, everything is in balance with each other. These images below will make it more clear. Enjoy!
