Happy Studio Sunday everyone! Today we’ll take a look at the work of op-art painter Bridget Riley. Riley paints on a large scale and so her studio in East London is suitably roomy. She often creates collage maquettes of her paintings at the beginning of her process, and thus the studio space is well stocked with paper - as well as a large table surface for her to work on both these collages, and the paintings.

Today is Studio Sunday, and to celebrate, let’s take a peek into the studio life of minimalist sculptor, Richard Serra. In the photo Serra appears hard at work at an artist’s workshop in Los Angeles, California, around 1990.

 

Serra is perhaps best-known for his large scale, often outdoor abstract sculptures, which he creates using sheets of steel.  These huge, architectural works are often placed in outdoor, public…

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 Jean Michel Basquiat, an artist weel-know for bringing street art to canvas. This space is super raw, not very cozy at all, I imagine that he would just get in there - do the work for the day and then get the heck outta there. What I love about this studio is the space and 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 Joan Miro. This photo depicts Joan Miro’s studio in Palma de Mallorca. I really do drool over the stone wall feature in this studio. Stones seem to make handy paper weights as well! It's nice to see a wide range of sizes of work here, from the small piece in the foreground to…

It’s Studio Sunday! Today we’re taking a look at abstract artist Cy Twombly, seen here in his studio in Rome in 1962. Twombly's studio was part of his home, and reflected his fascination with antiquity and classical European art. Featuring atterned tile floors and high, white walls with tall windows to let in natural light, the studio was also home to many pieces of antique furniture and sculpture. .

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 Brenda Holkze who lives and works in LA. Brenda creates mixed media vessels, sculpture and wall art. I love the roof in this studio - it just makes the place look so cozy - I wonder if she has ever considered installing a hammock. I suppose that could make the space a lot less productive though. I…

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 Georgia O'Keefe who is very well-known for her large floral paintings. Apparently there was a four year period in which she walked away from painting, but, thank goodness, she came to her senses and picked up the brushes again. Not  a bad thing to remember next time you are…

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 photographer Cindy Sherman. Sherman is famous for her self portraiture, long before the selfies of today. Often she posed as different female stereotypes, creating a cast of different characters via make-up, lighting, clothes and wigs.

This photo is of her studio in Paris. She is so obviously totally awesome. I mean just look at her! One day I will be this fabulous. Is that striped cape really her painting smock ? How does she stay so clean? The doll is sort of creeping me out but I love…

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.
