My Art at Heartbeat Boxing August 4th, 2016

Hello! I used to come by here back in 2010 as a 20-something year old to blog and post pics of my art. Six years has passed since I last posted my art. I am still making art, though my style has changed. I have matured as an artist. My style is now more expressionist, more abstract, and I do more paintings now. Also, I do acrylic paintings now. I have spent the past 5 years attending CSU Fresno for my Bachelor's and Master's degrees and volunteering as a graphic designer for an extracurricular…See More

With this arm I draw

charcoal white chalk used to create this self-portrait with a flower in the background. The flower was in the process of falling into a pile of petals so I had to draw quick.

Kinsky Catastrophe and the Ever Elusive Perfect Audience

Klaus Kinsky, one-man artist from the 1970's, died in 1991 and his estate recently put out his chaotic show, "Jesus Christ Savior" (Jesus Christus Erloser) up for sale on a DVD.Having never heard of Kinsky before I sat, expecting a decent lecture on the Bible. What I got was a mish-mash of lucid bible-verses, curses spat at the unruly audience, and Kinsky's strange persecution complex."How can you take this splinter from out of my eye," he howled, "When YOU have a LOG in your own eye?!"The…See More

Like A Rabid Dog Waiting For You Outside Your Front Door

Shock Art!! The World Of Tracy EminShock art. Shocking. Absurd. Perverse. Yet it exists and it is a reflection of all of our internal turmoil—the internal world, the subconscious dream world, the very real world of war, plagues, crime. What is art but life replicated or revamped or inverted? And a huge chunk of life is not aesthetically pleasing.Imagine you receive a newspaper in the morning with the headline blacked out. You open up the page to the crime report and it reads “ ------- was…See More

An Outsider's Look At Jean-Michel Basquiat

To many, Jean Michel Basquiat is a mystery; his art, his persona, his cryptic messages he tagged all over NYC. To anyone unversed in art

history, his paintings come across as either child-like or genius. As one

artist put it in the movie, “Modern Art A Complete History”, to be a genius is

to be a child all over again, whenever you need to be one. Jean Michel was

certainly a prodigy, by the age of twenty-seven, upon his death, he had left

the world…
