Ben Enwonwu: The Nigerian painter behind 'Africa's Mona Lisa'

Another work by Enwonwu, of an Ife princess Tutu, affectionately dubbed "Africa's Mona Lisa", was sold in 2018 for £1.2m. It is considered a national masterpiece.

Celebrated Nigerian author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie told the BBC in 2013: "This particular painting "Tutu," the print, hung on every wall, of every middle-class family in eastern Nigeria when I was growing up."

Vivid portraits shine light on Tahiti's 'third gender'
Namsa Leuba Photo.png
On the Polynesian island of Tahiti, there is said to be something akin to a sixth sense -- one that belongs to neither men nor women. Instead, it is the sole domain of the "mahu," a community recognized as being outside the traditional male-female divide.

"Mahu have this other sense that men or women don't have," said Swiss-Guinean photographer Namsa Leuba, whose images from the island are showing at a new exhibition in London. "It is well known in (French Polynesia) that they have something special."

In Tahiti, mahu are considered a third or "liminal" gender, born biologically male but recognized by peers as distinct, often from early in their lives. Their gender identity has been accepted on the island since time immemorial, and mahu traditionally play key social and spiritual roles, as guardians of cultural rituals and dances, or providers of care for children and elders.

Leuba's new photo series, "Illusions: The Myth of the 'Vahine' through Gender Dysphoria," shows the diversity of gender identities in French Polynesia, where the photographer spends half her year.

Auto Mechanics Recreate Renaissance Paintings
Photographer Freddy Fabris had always wanted to pay homage to the Renaissance masters with his photos in some way, but he wasn’t sure how until he stumbled upon an auto-mechanic shop in the Midwest. This led to a brilliant series of funny portraits with auto mechanics.

Painting Found Inside Walls of Italian Gallery May Be a Stolen Klimt
“Portrait of a Lady” went missing from the Ricci Oddi Modern Art Gallery in February 1997

Read more: https://www.smithsonianmag.com/smart-ne ... K7YhF6i.99
gardener clearing ivy from an Italian museum’s walls recently uncovered a metal panel. When he pulled it open, he discovered a nook in which someone had stuffed a black bag.

“[A]t first I thought it was trash,” the worker told Italian media, according to Andrea Vogt of the Telegraph, “but then I called my superiors right away.”

Inside the bag was a painting of a rosy-cheeked woman, staring over her shoulder with large, almond-shaped eyes. The work still needs to be examined by experts, but officials at the Ricci Oddi Modern Art Gallery in Piacenza suspect it may be a missing portrait by Austrian symbolist artist Gustav Klimt.

Image


Should the artwork prove to be an original Klimt, the decades-long mystery surrounding the whereabouts of Portrait of a Lady will finally come to a close—and a painting worth some $66 million will be restored to its rightful place on, not in, gallery walls.

https://www.thisiscolossal.com/2019/12/ ... iang-gifs/
Sydney-based artist Nancy Liang (previously) takes an unusual and multidisciplinary approach to creating whimsical looping gifs of star-filled nights. Liang begins with kraft paper cutouts and hand-drawn illustrations in her sketchbook that she transfers to a digital platform like Photoshop or After Effects. She then arranges her work in a collage and animates it, creating darkly colored, moving scenes that often focus on the natural elements of cityscapes and suburban life in Australia.

Liang said in an interview with Paper Darts that much of her inspiration comes from her habit of working throughout the night, something she’s done since she was a child. “While most people are asleep, I find something very exciting about being awake. The night is quiet and still, and much like my thoughts, this inspires curious and mysterious urban stories out there,” Liang says.

This pizza maker makes a feast for the taste buds AND the eyes

Palmieri first explored pizza art in July of 2016, when he made a "very basic" US flag pizza with pepperoni stripes and olive stars. "It was a huge hit with customers and the following winter I made a fairly simple Patriots logo pizza during their 2017 title run," said Palmieri.

They’re not as old, of course, but many of the Mayan, Aztec, etc., buildings were also very colorful, no matter how little there is left.

Interesting video. Thanks.

Thick Impasto Strokes Form Abstract Portraits in New Paintings by Salman Khoshroo

Iranian painter Salman Khoshroo uses a palette knife and sizable layers of paint to create the emotive portraits in his recent series, “White on White.” In contrast to his previous work that relied on swirling reds, blues, and yellows, Khoshroo’s latest impasto pieces are monoch
romatic. Starting with a hunk of paint, the artist then forms the portrait’s outline before shaping the rest of the face that lacks distinct physical features. Viewers can follow his creative process step-by-step by looking at the edges of each stroke.

Khoshroo tells Ignant that he hoped “to capture a human spark with minimal intervention,” and create portraits of “people that make you feel something, people you didn’t even know you were looking for.” Stay up to date with the artist’s lively work on Instagram and check out his available pieces on his site. You also might enjoy taking a peek at Joseph Lee’s colorful portraits.

For machinists, welders, tool and die makers:

WATCH: This art looks like it’s from the future, but the artist is committed to the past

An exhibit that opened Saturday at Bethlehem’s National Museum of Industrial History celebrates how art can preserve the past.

Chris Bathgate, a self-trained machinist, works with both handmade tools and automated milling machines to create utterly unique sculptures.

Some pieces can change shape. Others look like battle-ready robots.

Yet that “sci-fi aesthetic” is rooted in techniques created during the Industrial Revolution, the Baltimore-based Bathgate told lehighvalleylive.com.
