Art Portfolio: David Tycho


Acrylic painting on canvas of body of water with mountainBlue Fuji #1 Acrylic on Canvas by David Tycho

 

Today we feature the art portfolio of painter David Tycho. His sweeping brush strokes foster energetic marks of colour and offer the sensation of movement. Colours contrast nicely in these pieces from David's series called "Japan Series". There is a delightful calmness to these "portraits" of Fuji.

 

"David Tycho was born in Vancouver in 1959. He studied painting under renowned artist…

Artist Portfolio: Terry Cervantes

 

Drawing of seashells on plates

Seashell Dinner Plates by Terry Cervantes

 

Today we feature the portfolio of artist Terry Cervantes. She creates delicate drawings of seashells and transfers the image to ceramic bowls and plates. For me the quality of shell itself is echoed in the ceramics. Terry also has paintings and drawings in her online portfolio and you can discover her beautiful creations in her Etsy store for purchase.

Artist Portfolio: Bryan Coombes


Painting of coconut tree with coconuts

He is often seen painting on location or walking the woods with camera in hand where he'll record vital aspects of his subject before starting studio work in oil or acrylic paint. Bryan allows room for spontaneity in his work, allowing the subject to guide his approach in terms of what he sees and how he'll describe it. If there is one thing he…

Photograph by Bill Westmoreland

 

Today we are featuring the photography portfolio of artist Bill Westmoreland. When I look at the photos of Bill Westmoreland I am struck by the posture of the subject. Despite the variety in the style of the shot the posture, or the way the subject carries their pose seems to be a significant factor. The slight incline of the head in the photo below, the forward lean of the gentlemen in the theatre…

"Coiled" Poi Performance by Miranda Allen, Photograph by Serena Sorinsen

 

Today we feature the portfolio of performance artist Miranda Allen. The images of the artist performing poi are so stunning. I can't imagine what it would be like to be inside those wheels of light. Here the moments are frozen by photographers but you have to imagine that the movement is rapid and changes are constant. If Miranda Allen could wear a headband…

Illustration of wooden deer with apple and ladders
"La ciderie"

 

Today we look at the portfolio of artist Martin Ruel. He creates wildly imaginative imagery in his illustrations. His playful style remains bright with a twist of zaniness. I like the image above that shows a place where apple cider is made. I am curious about what the inside of this building would be like? Hopefully there would be alot of cider inside!

Artist Portfolio: El Celso


Painting of red and blue spheres on gree background
"Crush"

 

Today we are taking a look at the porfolio of artist El Celso. When I look at El Celso's work I get a feel that the work has a beat to it. I love the element of repetition that comes across. Whether the act of stacking tonnes of glittering bottles of fluid, a triad of giant candy apples or the paper work above.  I immediately start to look for the variations between the objects and that really draws me into the artwork more.…

Photography Portfolio: Madi Chambers

Photograph by Madi Chambers

 

Today we are taking a look at the photography portfolio of Madi Chambers. When I look at Madi Chamber's works I think about things that are mysterious, partially revealed and touching on the uncanny. There is a balance between a sense of darkness and a sense of lightness and the idea of  the veil whether it's hair, curtains or a partially wrapped tree. I'm the type that likes to be kept guessing so this…
