Every Sunday we give you a behind-the-scenes tour into the heart of creativity, the artist's studio. This week we visit the art studio of the artist Picasso where the muse, Olga Khokhlova, is seated.  I love how she is surrounded by these huge portraits of herself, it's so odd! Must be just one of the unusual circumstances of being married to Picasso.

Studio Sundays: From the Art Studio of Camille Rose Garcia

 

Every Sunday we give you a behind-the-scenes tour into the heart of creativity, the artist's studio. This week we visit the art studio of Camille Rose Garcia. There are some great studio objects in this video, the clock is amazing as well as all the strange little vessels that Camille uses for the ink that she is using. Her work puts a dark twist on fairy tales - despite the fact that some of them are pretty dark already. Her style…

Every Sunday we give you a behind-the-scenes tour into the heart of creativity, the artist's studio. This week we visit the art studio of artist Jay Shinn. This artist makes unique work that has a very clean feel of design and architecture. His work plays with elements of light, geometry and reflection. This is a very clean and bright studio - I'm jealous, especially of the polished concrete floors.

Every Sunday we give you a behind-the-scenes tour into the heart of creativity, the artist's studio. This week we visit the art studio of artist Audrey Kawasaki. This artist works on wooden panels and let's the beautiful wood grain shows through in her work. Her lines are very delicate, as is her paint application. Her work usually features female figures and erotic undertones. The grain of the wood always seems in perfect harmony…

Every Sunday we give you a behind-the-scenes tour into the heart of creativity, the artist's studio. This week we visit the art studio of Canadian artist
Sonny Assu. Sonny works in a variety of media, always taking a unique approach with materials and presentation. I am really smitten with the drums pictured in the image above as I like the restraint of colour palette that results in subtle tonal work that graces the surfaces of these drums.

Every Sunday we give you a behind-the-scenes tour into the heart of creativity, the artist's studio. This week we visit the art studio of Chris Millar who creates elaborate sculptural works that weave narrative threads throughout each piece. I am digging the creative clutter in this photo, the artist seems almost buried in the work in a composition not too different from his own busy compositions ( you can see his work in the…

Every Sunday we give you a behind-the-scenes tour into the heart of creativity, the artist's studio. This week we visit the art studio of the famous artist Willem de Kooning, a famous abstract expressionist. This photo was taken in 1952. I love the focussed expression on the artist's face as he works through his creative decision-making. Is he choosing colours? Much of the paint seems to end up on the floor and the walls too. This photo…

Every Sunday we give you a behind-the-scenes tour into the heart of creativity, the artist's studio. This week we visit the art studio of artist Vanessa Maltese whose work moves between painting and installation/sculpture with fluidity, each echoing the other. Full disclosure, I am a huge fan of this artist's work. She plays with flatness, dimensional space and pattern with a unique subdued palette. I just swoon when I see her…

Every Sunday we give you a behind-the-scenes tour into the heart of creativity, the artist's studio. This week we visit the art studio of the artist Mari Andrews. Her works tread the line of drawing and sculpture in a beautiful way. I think they look so amazing in a group like this showing the shifts in sizes and overall shapes. I bet these would cast the best shadows too! I am jealous of how high the ceilings are in this studio.
