Top of Their Field and Favorites

April 8, 2018

Dear Reader,

Through my 25 years, and 200 issues of the arts and media zine Musea (1992-now), I’ve met many excellent musicians, painters, writers, photographers, filmmakers, etc.

Here are some that are personal favorites, but I also think that they are at the top of their field and they deserve world recognition for their achievements.

Gregory K. H. Bryant – art

David McGhee – photography

Sara Niemietz and Snuffy Walden – music

Michael Helsem – writing

Scott Jacob Loehr – music

Ace Backwards – blogging.

Sparrow – poetry.

David Darling – science website, writing.

TYT, The Young Turks – online news.

Realism Versus Other Art

April 3, 2018

This post looks at the two different types of art: REALISM versus OTHER TYPES OF ART.

Many only like realism. The paintings and art they like have to look as much like a photograph as possible.
That’s fine; but know that art can evolve too, and artists that don’t do realism, can be just as talented.

Realism shows the world as it is.

The other types of art enhance reality for effect that often gives the art:

more drama
more impact
more emotion
more spontaneity
more color,
more charm,
more fun
more exaggeration for effect
more style,
more inspiration,
more spirituality, …

This enhanced art can also better explain or illustrate a story or concept. It can also lead to better compositions.

So open both your eyes and mind and see and enjoy all the many types of great art out there.

Flooring for the Artist’s Floor

February 8, 2018

This youtube video shows how to cover your floors with brown paper bags. Looks great.

So what if you took the idea further. Try these ideas.

1 Comics, cover your floor in comic books
2. Fashion magazine photos.
3. The art of your favorite artist, an all Monet floor, or Matisse, or …? 4. Sci-fi illustrations, or science formulas.
5. Your favorite singer, plus music sheets from that person’s hits! 6. Flower photos, or bird photos, or cat photos, or all insects!

Perhaps a solid color background would better show off the art on the floor. Maybe a center section of the art and a solid border all around it. Lots of ideas here!
