JfR I am a french born artist living in Switzerland sharing my time between Paris, Engelberg, Luzern , Zurich, and the world ,

- In a spirit of being *here and now*, i use some Japanese technique of calligraphy for my painting and drawing -
Also involved in digital media, video art and virtual world, I like to define myself as a Cross Media Picture Maker.

Contemporary art has to use all mirrors, techniques, and spread cultural ideas through the big network around the earth.

There is no inferior or depreciated way to perform art, web, TV, digital facility, social network or simple paper, all are pencils and medium of the century.

1503 | Fine art photographer: CHRISTIAN TAGLIAVINI

1503 | Fine art photographer: CHRISTIAN TAGLIAVINI | Contemporary art | Scoop.it

With his already legendary series »1503« Christian Tagliavini invites the viewer to a time travel to the 16th century. His protagonists bear names such as Cecilia, Lucrezia or Bartolomeo, they are gracile, graceful or mighty and all of them express the pride of the Renaissance. In the style of the Florentine Agnolo di Cosimo, in art history better known as Bronzino, Tagliavini gives the patina of Mannerism to his modern sitters. The title of the series »1503« is also a reference to Bronzino’s year of birth.

 

The artist does not only stages the image space or places the light. The accurate spadework of each portrait is an inalienable foundation for the accomplished work that attracts the recipient. From the casting over the design of the dresses through to the makeup, Tagliavini is the indicatory player in every single operating procedure. The universal artist creates a piece of art that is the result of this creative process – the traces of them meet up in the final work and culminate in something sublime.

 

By doing so, the artist perfectly succeeds in the challenge of citing art history without simply copying it. Finally, with a productive period of more than 13 months the series »1503« has become an impressive testament of the visionary creative richness of the avant-gardist Christian Tagliavini.

Photo report's curator insight, January 5, 2014 12:40 PM

Born in 1971, Christian Tagliavini grew up in Italy and Switzerland. He had studied graphic design and worked as an architect and graphic artist before he focused on photography art in 2000. Additional fine arts such as architecture, graphic design or drawing have influenced his art until today. His biographic background also shaped his understanding of art to invent and construct works. His works cannot only be seen as images, they are complex pieces of art, which have their roots in different materials. Tagliavini’s creative work is mostly mirrored in series that tell stories, offer multifaceted quotes or which are the result of an unusual contemporary concept. His works have been exhibited in numerous exhibitions and art fairs worldwide. Christian Tagliavini, who was honoured with the Hasselblad Masters Award in 2012, lives and works in Switzerland today.

Take a look at this great collection of inspiring and creative graffiti artworks from all over the world.

Bellas Artes's curator insight, May 22, 2014 2:10 PM

Variedad de simple a compleja pintura Graffiti caries un mensaje político y social de gran alcance, y de expresión. Aún con todo el graffiti no es aceptada por las autoridades municipales y la policía. Graffiti retrata una explosión de color y la propia expresión personal.
