One might not think that parking lots, crosswalks, and other broad asphalt expanses would be particularly amenable to artwork, but for Montreaal-based artist and activist Roadsworth (aka Peter Gibson, previously) every white or yellow traffic paint stripe is a new opportunity.

How to Teach Your Children to Care about Art

How to Teach Your Children to Care about Art | Abstract Fine Art | Scoop.it
Upon entering Frieze New York last May, I ran into a colleague with his two small children. As we crossed the threshold of the bustling fair tent, the kids sprang into action, making a beeline for a red Carsten Höller octopus. They promptly plopped down beside it and began a discussion—“What is it made of?” and “Why is it red?” were among preliminary questions. A month or so later I’d see them again, this time in Chelsea, marvelling over Jordan Wolfson’s animatronic puppet at David Zwirner. Even to a stranger, it would have been clear that for these children, going to see art was an integral part of their lives. Their intense engagement with art (a level of enthusiasm that many adults struggle to maintain) begged some questions. What is it about art that commands a child’s attention? What impact can art have on a child’s development? And more broadly, what can be done to instill an appreciation of art in children?

11 Simple Tricks To Enhance Your Social Media Images

11 Simple Tricks To Enhance Your Social Media Images | Abstract Fine Art | Scoop.it
Humans are, by nature, very visual beings.

In the brain itself, there are hundreds of millions of neurons devoted to visual processing, nearly 30 percent of the entire cortex, as compared with 8 percent for touch and just 3 percent for hearing.


Each of the two optic nerves, which carry signals from the retina to the brain, consists of a million fibers, compared to the auditory nerve carrying a mere 30,000.


That’s all to say that social media images are a vital part of your content reaching the maximum amount of people, people who are very visual beings!


Marketers that have dabbled in creating engaging images for social media know just how tough and time-consuming it can be. I’m no expert, but I’ve learned a thing or two about creating social media images after lots of practice (and mistakes!), and I’m excited to share with you my favorite social media design tips and principles to help enhance your social media images.

See The Greatest Artists In The History Of The World . . . As Emojis

See The Greatest Artists In The History Of The World . . . As Emojis | Abstract Fine Art | Scoop.it

There's a lot of study about how the prevalence of emojis are changing the way we communicate. Linguists debate what we gain versus what we lose when we express sadness by texting a crying face rather than saying, "I'll miss you." But emojis aren't just about communication—they can be art, too.

 

That's the premise of a fun little campaign from Cantor Fine Art gallery in Hollywood, anyway, which for the past couple of weeks has been using its Instagram account to share emoji-fied versions of the world's greatest artists and their work—from Magritte's Son of Man to Vincent van Gogh to Georgia O'Keeffe's skulls to Keith Haring to Jackson Pollack. The breadth of the project is a big part of the fun (Damien Hirst works surprisingly well as an emoji!), but the campaign's faithfulness to both the artists and the emojis is what really elevates the project.

 

Emojis are a part of our culture and how we communicate now, for better or for worse, and while seeing a cute lil' Andy Warhol in sunglasses sipping from his can of Campbell's Soup is a fun gag, it does also raise the question of what a pop culture-obsessed figure like Warhol would make of this contemporary visual language. That's a fair bit of heavy lifting for a quirky campaign intended to draw attention to a fine art gallery in Los Angeles whose current show is called "Please Touch the Art," and it's the least pretentious way possible to get us thinking in those terms....

Which Type of Exercise Is Best for the Brain?

Which Type of Exercise Is Best for the Brain? | Abstract Fine Art | Scoop.it

For the first time, scientists compared the neurological impacts of different types of exercise in rats: running, weight training and high-intensity interval training.


Some forms of exercise may be much more effective than others at bulking up the brain, according to a remarkable new study in rats. For the first time, scientists compared head-to-head the neurological impacts of different types of exercise: running, weight training and high-intensity interval training. The surprising results suggest that going hard may not be the best option for long-term brain health.


As I have often written, exercise changes the structure and function of the brain. Studies in animals and people have shown that physical activity generally increases brain volume and can reduce the number and size of age-related holes in the brain’s white and gray matter.

Take Your Talk On A Walk: How Walking Improves Storytelling & Fosters Creativity

Every time I'm getting a story ready to tell, or every time I give a storied talk, I storyboard my presentation on a set of 3x5 cards (1 image/trigger word per card), than go for a walk.


Why? Because it embeds the story into my body and becomes much more of a whole brain/body experience. That way it's a lot easier to tell when I'm on the stage.


Or if I know I have a talk coming up, but I'm not sure about what I'm going to say, I go on a walk. Presto magic, while on the walk I figure it all out. This is when  I take my cell phone with me that's got the Evernote app on it. I open up a new note in Evernote and can record my thoughts and the talk right into the note while walking. By the time I get back to the office, my thoughts/outline/story are already on my computer waiting for storyboarding and polishing.


Easy peasy!


Now researchers at Stanford Univ. have confirmed how powerful walking is in stimulating creativity. Since storytelling is a creative act, it's no wonder how walking can work so well with them.


You'll enjoy this post, along with the 13:45 minute interview with Mary Oppezzo, one of the 2 Stanford walking researchers featured. Story on!
