Featured Artist: Kay Daichi

Kay Daichi’s work tends to focus on the environment. From there, however, it often makes a journey that may end up focusing on people or a particular object in that environment. He has been exploring various styles and colors from different generations of artists, working with multiple mediums, including both traditional and digital resources.

New Artist: Luigi Florio

Luigi Florio is a modern figurative painter. Born in a small village near Milan in northern Italy, he received his art diploma at the Art Institute of Cantù. He later attended the Libera Art Academy, under the Italian master, Cino Balleri. His artistic influences come from the Italian art of the 19th century, passing through the “Macchiaioli” movement (an equivalent of french “Tachisme”) up to French Impressionists.

His subjects range from the northern Italy countryside to the warm light of coastal Liguria, to splendid portraits of the most popular Italian cities like Rome, Florence and Venice, which have had extraordinary success worldwide. His constantly changing style is ultimately exploring abstraction in a new personal form.

Edward Hopper in Paris

Recognized as one of America’s greatest artists, and one of the most enduringly popular, major Edward Hopper exhibitions in Europe are a rare occurrence. Almost all of his paintings are in U.S. collections and exhibiting them together outside the country is a significant undertaking. The Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza in Madrid is one of the few museums outside the U.S. to have collected Hopper’s work and co-organized the blockbuster show now at the Grand Palais in Paris until January 28, 2013. For more information click here.

Studying in New York City, Hopper was first schooled in American Impressionism by William Merritt Chase and subsequently by Robert Henri in the urban realism that spawned what came to be known as the “Ashcan School.” However, he managed to forge an independent creative direction and his unsettlingly lonely meditations on modern American life have had a lasting hold not only in fine arts, with U.S. artists such as Willem de Kooning, Jim Dine and Mark Rothko citing him as an influence, but also in the broader popular culture, in cinema and even rock music.

The new exhibition expands the cultural context of Hopper’s work beyond the USA, to include the formative influence of European art on his work. The artist spent nearly a year in Paris in 1906, returning for shorter stays in 1909 and 1910.  The exhibition explores Hopper’s relationship to his contemporaries there: Edgar Degas, Albert Marquet and Felix Vallotton, as well as the British artist, Walter Sickert. Although Hopper’s artistic concerns are definitively rooted in his American culture, his unique perspective transcends national boundaries.

Some of Hopper’s influences included:

William Merritt Chase
Robert Henri
Jim Dine
Mark Rothko
Edgar Degas
Felix Vallotton

New Artist: Steve Thomas

Steve Thomas’ love for vintage poster, propaganda and product art from the early 20th century and an interest in retro-futuristic images from the mid-20th has led to creating some cool poster art.
