Buyfeel art inspiration No. 23.: Huang Guofu is painting by mouth and feet

written by 1 Comment posted in ARTFEEL - Art Blog

Today we would like to inspire you with production of Huang Guofu.

He  is a 42 year old disabled chinese artist who is painting by mouth and feet after he lost both his hands in a childhood accident.

Instead, he taught himself to paint with his feet at the age of 12. He recalls staying up all night at times just to practice. (1)

At the age of 18 Mr Guofu’s father fell ill and he quit school and spent hours painting and selling his work on the pavement to try and help pay towards his father’s care. (2)

Huang Guofu, Artist said “In the beginning, the items I drew did not look anything like I intended. It took time, and gradually I became better and better. Sometimes I even stayed up all night just to practice, practice, and practice.” Huang’s skills have grown mature over the decades, and his painstaking efforts are given due recognition.

His pictures are now sought after by dealers and art lovers around the world. Huang Guofu said “God might have closed my door. But my window was left open, allowing me to make a living and even feel happy and content. I’d say I still appreciate what God has given me.” (3)

Buyfeel art inspiration No. 21.: Jason Yarmosky

written by No Comments posted in ARTFEEL - Art Blog

Today we would like to inspire you with production of Jason Yarmosky and his idea that age is not a deterrent to living fully, but rather a springboard for exploration. His paintings examine the relationship between the limitations of social norms and the freedom to explore, particularly the juxtaposition between the young and old. The carefree nature that is associated with youth often gives way to borders and boundaries placed on adult behavior.

How do you like it?

Jen Stark (USA) graduated as BFA at Maryland Institute College of Art in in Fibers and Animation Concentration. She won  the MOCA North Miami Optic Nerve 10th annual film festival. More about her works here.

author: Haroshi - Screaming my foot - recycling old used skateboards (Haroshi © – all rights reserved)

Haroshi makes his art pieces recycling old used skateboards. His creations are born through styles such as wooden mosaic, dots, and pixels; where each element, either cut out in different shapes or kept in their original form, are connected in different styles, and shaven into the form of the final art piece. The most important style of Haroshi’s three-dimensional art piece is the wooden mosaic. In order to make a sculpture out of a thin skateboard deck, one must stack many layers. But skate decks are already processed products, and not flat like a piece of wood freshly cut out from a tree. More about his works here.

Buyfeel exhibition no. 32: Andy Reiben a Otakar Hudeček v BMW showroom Premium Selection Brno

written by No Comments posted in ARTFEEL - Art Blog

Buyfeel hledá pro výstavy uměleckých děl ze svého portfolia skutečně neobvyklá a reprezentativní místa. Jedním z takových interiérů je nově také showroom BMW Premium selection a BMW M v Brněnském Renocar.

V prostoru luxusních prémiových automobilů jsme nainstalovali velkoformátové abstrakce od Andyho Reibena a Otakara Hudečka.

Tato velká a emocemi nabitá plátna dvou našich malířů esteticky vybarvila interiéry showroomů. Prostor jinak věnovaný rychlosti na čtyřech kolech, tak získal zcela nový rozměr unikátní galerie. Buyfeel kurátorsky zabezpečuje kromě těchto showroomů také přilehlou kavárnu BWW Café, kde nyní naleznete obrazy Barbary Issy Wagner a Jany Chroustové (o výstavě čtěte více zde).  Obrazy v  interiéru showroomů budou vystaveny až do konce září 2012, kdy budou nahrazeny dalšími skvělými malíři z portfolia Buyfeel. Zde je malá ochutnávka:

Buyfeel exhibition no. 31: Barbara Issa Wagner a Jana Chroustová v Renocar BMW café Brno

written by 1 Comment posted in ARTFEEL - Art Blog

Ve výstavním prostoru BMW Renocar Café, který Buyfeel kurátorsky zabezpečuje se od dubna do června 2012 představí hravé a skotačivé obrázky všedních dnů. Pro tento kvartál zde představujeme ilustrativní naivismus z tvorby Barbary Issy Wagner a Jany Chroustové. Drobné malby plné příběhů a nevšedních chvil. Záznam okamžiku, vzpomínky či snu v jednoduché až symbolické podobě a čistých, výrazných barvách. Takové lidské přiběhy nyní rozsvítily zdi této kavárny na neobvyklém místě mezi několika showroomy prémiových aut. Výstava je částečně veřejná, tedy primárně přístupná návštěvníkům a klientům showroomu BMW.
