Hello fellow art lovers! It’s Monday, and you know what that means! Yes, it’s time for me to share some my of my favorite artworks with you wonderful people. I hope you guys are ready for some truly interesting works. Now, grab a paintbrush, and let’s get started!
- Lust for life by Max Ernst 1936 Oil on Canvas: Wow, I love this piece so much! It’s very different from the usual abstract piece. First of all, the piece seems like something that you would see in an exotic garden. The beautiful greenery and a gorgeous sky. However, if you take a close look at the piece, you’ll see some abstract animals and strange spirits. It’s an absolutely fantastic piece that plays tricks on your eyes and is an amazing sight to behold. I highly recommend this piece to anybody that loves colorful and abstract nature paintings.
- The Harlequin carnival by Joan Miro 1924-5 Oil on Canvas: This piece is guaranteed to blow your mind! It’s very unusual, and is very colorful in nature. The painting is filled to the brim with elongated figures, strange objects, and curvy lines. The painting reminds me of what a hallucination might look like, and I love it so much! I would really love to hear what you guys think of this piece, so be sure to leave a comment in the comments section below.
War by Edwin Starr from the album “He Who Picks a Rose” 1970 (info about album date from en.wikipedia.org) Are you guys ready for one of the best anti-war songs? I sure hope so! This piece has everything; catchy vocals, a great message, awesome instruments, and high energy. It starts with the lyrics “War, what is it good for?” The song then dives into why war is useless, and why it does more harm than good. The various horns that accompany this piece are also quite a feast for the ears. I highly recommend this song to anybody that loves catchy Funk music. Tell me what you think of this pieces in the comments section below.
Happy Listening 😀
