Hello fellow art lovers! It’s Monday, and you know what means! Yes, it’s time for me to share some of my favorite artworks with you wonderful people. I hope that you guys will enjoy this post, and be sure to tell me what you think of it in the comments section below. Now, let’s get started!
- Japanese Apricot 2 by Chiho Aoshima 2000 Inkjet print on paper: Here we have a very beautiful, yet unsettling painting from Japan. It’s a seemingly serene nature scene with amazingly detailed flower petals, a huge tree, and a sublime pink sky. The painting turns a bit dark when you see the worried, nude, girl tied to the tree. There’s also 3 birds that are staring at the woman. I personally love the combination of beauty and wariness. In conclusion, this is both a sublime and disturbing piece of Japanese art.
- Notary by Jean-Michel Basquiat 1983 Acrylic, oil paintstick, and paper collage on canvas mounted on wood supports, three panels: Good old Basquiat, you never cease to amaze me! This piece is a giant, three panel Abstract masterpiece! The first panel, has many random words scrawled on it, as well as three speakers, and one half of a life preserver. The second panel, has two of his famous “heads”, random numbers and words, and the other half of the life preserver. The first head is pale, and looks very similar to a skull. The second head, is even more skeletal, accompanied by half of a body, and a long orange spine. The last panel, has more random words and splotches of multicolored paint. I love this piece so much, and I hope that you guys will enjoy it too.
