Hello fellow art lovers! It’s Monday, and you know what that means! Yes, it’s time for me to show you guys some of my favorite works of art. Now, let’s dive into the amazing world of art!
- Philistines by Jean-Michel Basquiat 1982 Acrylic and oil paintstick on canvas. Are you guys ready for a very cool painting by the epic Basquiat? I sure hope so! This piece is equal parts creepy and unique. The painting depicts 3 figures that are very different from one another. The leftmost figure has a very goofy face and visible bucktooth. He also has short spiky hair and a colorful body. The middle figure is the creepiest of the 3, and has a very skeletal body, along with an equally terrifying face. The rightmost figure is the shortest of the 3, and looks like a voodoo doll. The halo on top of his head could symbolize that he’s dead. In conclusion, this painting is an amazingly vivid and wonderful work of abstract art.
- Accommodations of Desire by Salvador Dali 1929 Oil and collage on panel. It’s been a while since I’ve put a Dali on this post! Well, that’s about to change! This painting is one my favorites, and it truly is a sight to behold! There’s so much happening on the canvas, that you don’t know where to begin looking! The painting is filled with 7 egg-like objects that each depict different images. There’s also many statues in the distance of women, lions, and men. The egg images include a lion’s mane, a vagina-shaped hole, a splash of red paint, a creepy dandelion, and mound of black hair. It’s up to you to decide what these images mean, so be sure to tell me what you think in the comments section below. I’d love to hear your answers. 😀
