Since I was a little child, I loved to touch all kinds of artwork with my hands. The shapes of a sculpture, the texture of a painting... not always as popular at museums or fine Art galleries 🤣
If you want to touch and feel my paintings I have Open Art Studio for two days next week, Thursday 20th Sept. and Saturday 22th Sept. (12:00-19:00). Welcome! 🙌🏻😁🍾 #OpenArtStudio #Welcome #Oslo #Fagerborg #Majorstua #artstudio
This mornings drawing at coffee: I am using paper from one of my favorite art magazines called “ARTFORUM”. The format of this magazine is large glossy pages, perfect for my drawings.
Apart of my surrealism series.
Aloha to all... 🌈☀️🌺🌴❤️
I never sketch out my full design before hand. I like to just create as I go. If I get the infamous “artist block” I just sit back and look at my work till something comes to me. #thisismyprocess #artist
Hope your weekend is a good one!
Do you listen to podcasts Which ones
I love listening to them while I work in the studio, especially the conversational ones that tell real stories about people and their lives.
Here are a few I've been binge-listening to lately and what I like about them:
✨@farnamstreet 's podcast: The Knowledge Project (interesting conversations that go deep into things like mental models, decision making, learning, reading, and life in general/living a good life)
✨@thecreativeindependent 's podcast TCI Transmissions (thoughts from all types of working artists on how they do -- their site and newsletters have a lot of helpful advice for artists too)
✨@thebetterhumanproject podcast (raw/real stories about human performance and productivity - listen to the recent one with Joe Buckner, it’s powerful)
✨@thejealouscurator 's podcast: Art For Your Ear (interviews with all kinds of artists around their lives and work)
What should I add to the list What are your favorite podcasts and why do you love them
Work in progress of a college project titled “Boys Don’t cry”
I used prismacolor pencils🤩
Absolutely love rust and the rainbow of colours that occur from oxidizing metal.
Do you see the colours I see
Blues, purples, reds, green, browns, gold, and white. Rust is such a gorgeous material.
This lightswitch cover was picked up at Tommy Thompson park which is a man-made island spit that narrowly stretches out into the lake on Toronto's East end. Great place to hike because it's a gorgeous home to a variety of birds that are never seen in the city due to it's seclusion. A really remarkable place and my favorite park here because of it's unique landscape. The beaches are full of eroded bricks, rubble, and decades old metal scrap that protrudes from the ground at random places. If you have read some of my other posts you would understand why I enjoy such a place...nature eroding built materials...my thing.
In this drawing I used white acrylic paint coupled with a white charcoal pencil to create the highlights.
I'm improving with each practice, learning, and through learning I'll teach those that follow my practicing.
That's important to me.
