Inside the Artists Studio

Visual arts is one of the most majestic, ancient art form known to man. Paints are not just paints. Pigments are not merely pigments. Symbolic as they are, painting, in particular,  is not just a thing of the mind nor the shadow of the world of ideas. It is the essence of being and living. It can be applied and of course it is transformative. It can change our views about ‘things’ and ‘non-things’ and it can open hidden possibilities beyond the litany of contemporary social life. It is deep, it the soul reinterpreting the real and the unreal. It is myth and magic at work.

Images are powerful especially the most powerful images. The act, the drama, the process, the burst of creativity, the result of the act, the story, the meaning is far more essential than the art work itself.

Here are some videos of visual artists, I collected over the net, working in the studio. My intention is to inform the public of the process in the creation and production of art works.  I tried to navigate and locate a couple clips of artists at work to provoke the viewers to react and provide some sort of impressionistic assessment on artistic style, worldviews, cultural context, episteme, similarities and differences, if any, among others.

Try to observe, listen and contemplate while watching the videos.  Have fun and Be free! Listen to the background as the painter paints her meaning of life.

      Yap artists are crazy imaginative. The artworks are provocative. The videos suggest that anything is possible.
