Keith Haring

Keith Haring                                   

Main Website:

Subject Matter: graffiti-inspired drawings on racism, gay rights and other social/political subjects. 

Elements of Art: shape, line, color

Principles of Design: balance, contrast, emphasis, movement

Mood: relaxed, simplistic, powerful

Artwork is about... reflecting urban America during the 1980's and the Pop Art culture movement.

Worth sharing because... it inspires many young and aspiring artist to trust their abilities in implementing their art in greater scales rather than the standardized ones. It encourages artist to speak their minds through pictures. After all, a picture IS worth a thousand words...

"I don't think art is propaganda; it should be something that liberates the soul, provokes the imagination and encourages people to go further. It celebrates humanity instead of manipulating it." 
 Keith Haring

Frida Kahlo

Frida Kahlo

1. Frida kahol is a Mexican surrealism artist who was married to artist Diego Rivera

3. Most of her art was based on personal traumas and events of her early and adult life. She was the subject in most of her artwork.
4. The elements of art in space texture value light and lots of colors
5. Principles of designs in Frida's art are balance contrast and emphasis 
6. You can feel Fridas sufferings and pain in her artwork 
7. Her art was about her life but included  aspects of indigenous Mexican culture and communist politics.
8. Frida Kahol was a strong, independent women who went thought many tragic events. She is worth sharing because her art beautifully captures her life and sufferings.

Steven Spazuk

1. Steven Spazuk is a artist from Canada who has mastered the technique of fumage which is using a kerosene lamp or candle to make smoke impressions.

3. The subjects of Spazuck art are created when he responds to the images he creates in the canvas
4. The elements of art emphasized in his work consist of the textures and values he creates with the soot residue.

5.  The principles of designs that Spazuk uses are movement, shape, and value.

6. Spazuk's art gives off a mysterious puzzling mood and feeling towards its viewers that is very hard to to find in other artists' work.

7. Some of his art has addressed issues such as awareness to nature and the population decline of birds. What Spazuk wants is for every individual to perceive his artwork in their own perspective because we are all part of a community.

8. Steven Spazuk has a unique technique that is quite mesmerizing to watch and his artwork has intricate details and fluidity that can't be created with just pencil. His artwork is worth sharing because it's remarkable and everyone should have the chance to experience and perceive it.

Spontaneity and chance are the heart and soul of his creative process. He does not censor. He does not direct. Spazuk opens himself to the experience. This in-the-moment creative practice coupled with the fluidity of the soot, creates a torrent of images, shadows and light. Fuelled by the quest of a perfect shape that has yet to materialize, he concentrate in a meditative act and surrender to capture the immediacy of the moment on canvas.

The human body fascinates him. Bodies in a perpetual metamorphosis are the language with which he express his thoughts on the human condition: emotions, opinions, stories that are born of his uncensored psyche. Spazuk often works piece by piece, collecting a multitude of unique elements that he assembles into mosaics.  Entities that, once grouped together, afford a different meaning and provide a new perspective that is both novel and complementary. He sees fragments of things, events, people, as a powerful metaphor of modern life and, even more so, of the way we perceive things through our senses and our minds. His work expresses how every one of us is a constituent fragment of the huma

Roy Lichtenstein

Roy Lichtenstein                                    

Main Website:

Subject Matter: modernism; turned American history and folklore into a more contemporary style. 

Elements of Art: shape, color, line

Principles of Design: balance, movement, pattern, rhythm 

Mood: mass-produced emotions such as sadness, bravery, etc.

Artwork is about... the typical American Life based on pop art that emphasizes bold-colored parodies similar to those of comic strips and advertisements.

Worth sharing because... his work depicts a sense of being able to implement the past into the present. Also, being one of the leading figures in the Pop Art movement, along with Andy Warhol, is eye-catching!

Oh, Jeff... I Love You Too, But...

Kelsey Brookes

  1. I found this artist on tumblr, the blogging website.
  2. The subject matter is usually strange patterns.
  3. His choice of emphasis for element of art is color, he has a very wide spectrum of color in his art.
  4. As for principle's of design he tends to use movement, emphasis, unity, and pattern in most, if not all, of his art.
  5. His art portrays a mood of calmness, or maybe even possibly a happy vibe, but I feel more calm than anything when I look at it and try to understand the feeling it gives off.
  6. The artwork is considered psychadelic art, it is usually just patterns or spirals. Although, He has some art that portrays animals or weird creatures, like the one below.
  7. This artist is worth sharing because you do not see psychadelic art like this very often, at least I am not used to it. I think it is very interesting to look at, and the color schemes he uses work extremely well together.

A Binary Set

Laia López

By Tatum

1. Laia Lopez

2. I found her on Tumblr in 2012
    a. This is her Art instagram
    b. This is her art tag on tumblr

3. She does not limit herself in any particular media, though enjoys doing digital and mixed media paintings

4. Laia puts an emphasize on color, texture, and shapes. All her pieces have heavy saturated color and have an even flow to them.

5. She also uses a lot of contrast if her piece has a background, in addition to contrast, she uses a fair amount of movement. This helps the piece seems 3 dimensional and more "alive".

6. Each piece has a specific mood, depending on the characters in the piece. But an overall theme is very light and  cheerful

7. The subject of the work are mostly of pop culture (bands, actors, tv/book characters,ect), Laia have very few original characters.

8.I feel like Laia's work is worth showing because the amount of time and detail she puts into each of her pieces. She taught herself in the beginning and now is studying art and animation at her local university in Barcelona,Spain. Laia hopes to make a career out of art and possibly working for Disney. She encourages other up-and-coming to never give up on their creative endeavors.

A Few Pictures From Her Instagram:
