Franz West - Unconventional Objects - Installations and Sculptures

 Franz West (16 February 1947 – 25 July 2012) was an Austrian artist.He is best known for his unconventional objects and sculptures, installations and furniture work which often require an involvement of the audience....«From abstract and interactive sculpture to furniture and collage, Franz West’s oeuvre possesses a character that is at once lighthearted and deeply philosophical. Belonging to a generation of artists exposed to the Actionist and Performance Art of the 1960s and 70s, West instinctively rejected the idea of a passive relationship between artwork and viewer. Opposed to the existential intensity requisite to his performative forebears (such as Actionism), he produced work that was vigorous and imposing yet unbounded and buoyant. In the seventies, he began creating compact, portable, mixed media sculptures called “Adaptives” (“Passstücke”). These “ergonomically inclined” objects were actualized as artworks only when touched, held, worn, carried, or otherwise physically or cognitively engaged...»

Hillary Lusanji Arts Sanjay - Drawings

«My official names are Hillary Lusanji 21years of age. I am a male Kenyan citizen. The name Sanjay, I derived it from my last name Lusanji so I came up with the artistic name Sanjay Arts which now most people refer to me as. I began doing art at the age of 7years when I was in primary school.
In 2011 when I joined high school I had to stop doing arts and focus on my studies because arts wasn't being offered in the school. I embarked in drawing in 2015 when I finished high school.
It wasn't easy because, there were some challenges along the way which I had to struggle with in the art industry but  it was all worth it because now I am doing doing commissioned pen and pencil portraits. My aim is to be able to speak to the world through art and maybe someday open an art gallery where each and and every artist will be welcomed to come and showcase their work.
Here are some samples of my work» Hillary Lusanji

Manoucher Yektai - Abstract Expressionism

 Manoucher Yektai (born December 22, 1921) is an Iranian American artist who belongs to the school of New York School Abstract Expressionist.
«Manoucher Yektai’s life has brought him through three cultures: Iran, France, the United States. This trajectory can be seen as a search for Modernism, and for a participation in Modernism, indeed, for a home in it. For a painter, the itinerary seems clear in its meaning: from Iran where, under Islamic strictures about imagery, free artistic expression was not available, first (with a brief pause in New York) to the ripe ambience of the School of Paris, then (more permanently) to the fledgling excitement of the emerging New York School.»

Jan Koblasa - Czech sculptor, artist and poet

Jan KOBLASA (1932-2017)  Czech poet, graphic, painter, scenographer, sculptor, writer, university educator and artist .
The specific form of expressive, content-rich expression, which first went through phases of radical abstraction, holds unconventional views of man and his destiny.

Mikulas Medek - Czech modern painting - Art Informel

“Mikulas Medek (November 3, 1926 — August 23, 1974) was a Czech painter.He is considered one of the most important representatives of Czech modern painting and one of the most important exponents of the post-war period.Medek’s work initially relies on the tradition of surrealism, later it brings new elements of the spiritual dimension. In 1952, he entered his «existential period” with the central theme of the human character in space, and at the turn of the 1950s and 1960s he came to abstract painting. As a result, so-called “prepared paintings” of color matter, arranged in the form of surface symbols and rationally distributed color formations have come into being. He brings the theme of the basic question of the meaning of human life directly to the color of its original image-making techniques»

Francois Morellet - Minimalism and Conceptual art

François Morellet (30 April 1926 – 10 May 2016) was a French contemporary painter, sculptor, and light artist. His early work prefigured minimal art and conceptual art, and he played a prominent role in the development of geometrical abstract art.
For Morellet, a work of art referred only to itself. His titles are generally sophisticated, show some word play, and describe the «constraints» or «rules» that he used to create them. Like other contemporary artists who use constraints and chance (or the aleatory) in their works (John Cage in music, the Oulipo group in literature), Morellet used rules and constraints established in advance to guide the creation of his works, and also allowed chance to play a role in some of his compositions.

Jesus Rafael Soto - Op Art-Kinetic

“Energy is one of the most striking elements of Soto’s work and his experiments with optical effects are representative of some of the most successful of the Op Art-Kinetic Art movements.Soto’s work, however, surpasses the mere exploitation of optical effects and he presents in his paintings a concentration of energy which attain a point where the paintings become a mirage, kinesthetically like a mental tension.Soto’s use of the moire effect plays a prominent role in his early works of transition from the tradition of hard-edge abstraction founded by Modrian to the more fluid expression he presently uses.”

Patrick Heron - Modern British Abstract Art

«Heron used that most rare and uncanny of gifts: the ability to invent an imagery that was unmistakably his own, and yet which connects immediately with the natural world as we perceive it, and transforms our vision of it. Like those of his acknowledged masters, Braque, Matisse and Bonnard, his paintings are at once evocations and celebrations of the visible, discoveries of what he called „the reality of the eye“
