Jaime Molina | Heart is a Lock, Music is the Key | Scoop.it

Painter and sculptor Jaime Molina has not only crafted a perfectly realized aesthetic, one of endlessly endearing folk art rusticity, but he’s created a whole world of his own.

This world, whose adorably melancholic inhabitants crop up again and in Molina’s work, is called Cuttytown, and the “little bearded fellows,” as he puts it, are Cuttys.

side from dreaming up citizens of Cuttytown, Molina keeps busy working on projects of every scale. “Right now I am finishing up a mural with my homeboy and frequent mural collaborator, Pedro Barrios, here in Denver at the Museum of Contemporary Art.” He has a residency at the Children’s Museum of Denver, and is planning two shows in Denver and one in Amsterdam in 2016.

Dušan Krtolica

Dušan Krtolica | Heart is a Lock, Music is the Key | Scoop.it
Meet Dušan Krtolica, one of the most talented 11-year-olds ever. The Serbian child prodigy is a master artist who creates stunningly detailed, nature-inspired drawings with a skill level that is far beyond his years. Using just pen or pencil, Krtolica draws anatomically correct flora and fauna, piling together aquatic life, dinosaurs, insects, birds, and other creatures in dense illustrations that burst with life. Krtolica's intricate drawings reflect his fascination with the natural world. He has a thorough knowledge of all the geological eras, the animals that lived during those periods, and different species of marsupials, among other things. When his parents bought him a comprehensive encyclopedia of animals, it took him less than three weeks to memorize it completely. "I would have studied animals and published a book about them, but I’m going to draw all of them," says the young boy, whose ambition is to become a zoologist in the future. Krtolica has been drawing since he was just two years old. Looking at his complex and advanced creations, it's not surprising to learn that he's already held three national solo exhibitions—the first two before the age of eight. As someone who's still learning and developing, we can imagine that his artwork will only continue to soar to new heights in the future.

Making of Roy Kafri Mayokero- VFX Breakdown 

Heymann was Born in Jerusalem, Israel. He was born to a Jewish Orthodox family. His parents emigrated to Israel from France in the early 70s. Heymann began his studies at the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in 2010 in the Visual Communications track. That year Heymann created a video dealing with religious symbols through replacing them with a simple IKEA watering can; this homework assignment was posted to YouTube and has since become viral gaining hundreds of thousands of views on YouTube and Vimeo. Many of its viewers saw this video as an atheistic composition manifesting Russell's atheistic teapot. A number of prominent atheist thinkers shared the video online and supported Heymann, including biologist Richard Dawkins and author Sam Harris. In his second year at Bezalel, Heymann created three videos (again as homework assignments), each has received more than 200,000 views on YouTube. The first video is a homage to the French series Bref, the video tells (very quickly) the story of a failed blind date. He then created "Der Mensch" an Opening title sequence for a would be Orthodox Western, whose main character frees Agunot. The third video is "shelf life," in which Heymann animated characters on food packaging in the refrigerator; the third video caught the attention of mainstream media in Israel. In May 2012 a music video Heymann directed for Asaf Avidan was released.The music video for the single "Different Pulses" has 3.5 million views on YouTube and was even named "Video of the Year" by some. In 2012 Heymann was creating commercial work, his first ad was made for Pepsi and was a collaboration with comedian Roy Kafri - the two created together a one-minute spot for the drink Pepsi Max. Heymann later created a campaign for Pepsi Max involving an augmented reality app he created. Roy Kafri and Heymann also created an ad for a small start-up starring model Bar Refaeli, the ad was a Macabre one-minute musical. The two also collaborated on a music video for one of Kafri's popular songs ("Yes I Did Approach Ido"). In October 2012 Heymann created a music video for the song "Young Professionals" by TYP, the project was a commercial collaboration with the American Express Company. As of January 2013 the program Eretz Nehederet ("Wonderful Country")of Channel 2 is broadcasting a series called Bekizur ("in short")it is an adaptation of the French series, Bref, a series built of two-minute episodes. The Israeli series stars Roy Kafri, Heymann directed the series and participated in writing the Hebrew version. In April 2013 Heymann created yet another beer commercial this time for Maccabee Beer, the ad features Isaiah Mustafa.A YouTube video of the ad has so far received one million hits. In November 2013, the website of Bob Dylan released an interactive music video which Heymann created and directed for the song "Like a Rolling Stone; this song was first released in 1965 and had not previously had an authorized video. The video allows viewers to flip through 16 television channels, which all feature characters who are lip-syncing the lyrics of the song. In December 2013 Time Magazine Named the video best music video of 2013. The video has since won many prizes including a Webby Award for Best Editing and 4 Gold Lions at the Cannes Lions in the Film Craft, Direct, and Branded Content & Entertainment categories. In 2015 Heymann continued releasing traditional video work along with interactive projects. In June 2015 an interactive mobile project he created for Canadian group Keys N' Krates single "Save me" was released, the video was an experiment in what could be considered the worlds first mobile music video to act as a social network, allowing the users to scroll through thousands of fan sourced gifs that are essentially photobombed by the band. A month later CeeLo Green released "Robin Williams" a first single from an album expected later in 2015, the song was released alongside an interactive video showing the song's lyrics typed in a Google search bar, with each word generating different results. Viewers are able to seamlessly toggle between Google, Google Images, Google Shopping and Google Videos to see what comes up via each lyric. Heymann often edits,shoots and does Visual effects in his own projects.

FARID RUEDA

FARID RUEDA | Heart is a Lock, Music is the Key | Scoop.it
Rueda was born in Morelos, officially titled as a Free and Sovereign State of Morelos. Mexican pride runs deep in these lands, so it’s not surprising to see how much affection this artist has for his country. When young Farid turned the age of nine, his family moved to Xochimilco, México City. This was the crucial time for his development as this transit meant Rueda had much more art at his disposal – Xochimilco offered much more galleries and art institutions. He entered the famous ENAP (Escuela Nacional de Artes Plásticas or National School for Visual Art). Although he did learn a lot while studying at this university, Rueda ultimately decided he was not satisfied with the ENAP’s program and made a tough choice to leave without graduating. This, however, meant he could completely devote to his personal expression full time without interference. At about that time when he was leaving ENAP, Farid met the famous artist Seher, who was the first one to encourage him towards pursuing a career in street art. In the beginning, he was a bit hesitant, but eventually said yes and teamed up with his new friend. They started working together on several projects and this can be identified as a true beginning of Farid Rueda’s art. From then it was obvious that his career and style will be based on vivid colors. As was clued beforehand, Farid chose to paint elements of his country’s culture and heritage, but only in a new way, uniquely his – yet still continually tied to some Mexican legend, verse or famous saying.

LINA IRIS VIKTOR

LINA IRIS VIKTOR | Heart is a Lock, Music is the Key | Scoop.it
Lina Viktor is a conceptual artist and painter. She lives and works itinerantly between New York, London, and Geneva. Raised in London to Liberian parents, she traveled extensively in her youth also living in Johannesburg, South Africa for many years. Her multi-disciplinary approach to her work is informed by a background in film which she studied at Sarah Lawrence College, and her continued studies within photography & design at The School of Visual Arts, along with years of performance as a teenager. Viktor creates her own mythology as a painter, sculptor, photographer, and performance artist. Viktor has exhibited alongside works by Andy Warhol, Takashi Murakami, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Tom Sachs, Ryan McGinley, & Peter Beard.
Lina Iris Viktor chooses to work in a strictly limited world - it is a mythical one of her creation existing within the zen-influenced, blurred lines of the real and the imagined. The world she imagines is perfectly curated, puristic, and minimalist - it tends to cancel out materiality, to transfer it to the realm of the spiritual. Governed by a purist color palette, her work considers the natural laws, hermetic philosophies, mathematic & scientific principles, and seeks to instill a divine order to all around her. Working across multiple mediums, she adheres to the colour palette of blue, black, white and 24-karat gold to create paintings, sculptures, photography, performance works, and installations. Viktor's work fuses apparent contradictions, synchronizing the monumental and the minuscule, decadent and the minimal, the spectacular and the invisible, seeking to heighten the experience of the spectator. Her self-portraits aim to transform the artist, to transmute her into being one with the environment, one with the elements, one with the concepts present in her work. It is evident through her process of creation and self-documentation that Viktor spends time monitoring the intention of her art, and takes the responsibility of directing her ever-evolving public role as an artist.

Klaus Nomi - Total Eclipse 1981

Klaus Sperber (January 24, 1944 – August 6, 1983), better known as Klaus Nomi, was a German countertenor noted for his wide vocal range and an unusual, otherworldly stage persona. Nomi was known for his bizarrely visionary theatrical live performances, heavy make-up, unusual costumes, and a highly stylized signature hairdo which flaunted a receding hairline. His songs were equally unusual, ranging from synthesizer-laden interpretations of classical opera to covers of 1960s pop standards like Chubby Checker's "The Twist" and Lou Christie's "Lightnin' Strikes". He is remembered in the United States as one of David Bowie's backup singers for a 1979 performance on Saturday Night Live. Nomi died in 1983 at the age of 39 as a result of complications from AIDS.
Klaus Nomi was born Klaus Sperber in Immenstadt, Bavaria, Germany on January 24, 1944. In the 1960s, he worked as an usher at the Deutsche Oper in West Berlin where he sang for the other ushers and maintenance crew on stage in front of the fire curtain after performances. Around that time he also sang opera arias at the Berlin gay discothèque Kleist Casino.[citation needed] Nomi moved to New York City in 1972. He began his involvement with the art scene based in the East Village. According to a documentary film made by Andrew Horn,[citation needed] Nomi took singing lessons and supported himself working as a pastry chef.

Daniel Clowes

Daniel Clowes | Heart is a Lock, Music is the Key | Scoop.it

Daniel Clowes is a celebrated graphic novelist (Ghost World, Wilson, David Boring), academy-award nominated screenwriter, and frequent cover artist for the New Yorker.

Daniel Clowes was born in Chicago, Illinois in 1961. He attended the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York, graduating with a BFA degree in 1984. His first professional work appeared in Cracked Magazine in 1985, and 1986 saw the debut of his first comic-book series Lloyd Llewellyn, which ran for seven issues. In 1989, he created the seminal comic-book series Eightball, where virtually all of his major comics work first appeared. The series ran for 23 issues through 2004 and earned the artist a large following and multiple industry awards including several Eisner, Harvey, and Ignatz awards. Collected from its pages are the graphic novels Like a Velvet Glove Cast in Iron, an indescribable nightmare-journey through pre-millennial America; Pussey!, a brutal examination of the comics industry; Ghost World, his breakthrough hit about the last summer of a teenage friendship; and David Boring, a dark and apocalyptic story of obsession. Clowes has also released two anthologies of his Eightball comics: Caricature, an acclaimed short-story collection; and Twentieth Century Eightball, a collection of humor strips including “Art School Confidential” and “Ugly Girls.”

David Cerny

David Cerny | Heart is a Lock, Music is the Key | Scoop.it
David Černý (born December 15, 1967) is a Czech sculptor. His works can be seen in many locations in Prague.
He gained notoriety in 1991 by painting a Soviet tank pink, to serve as a war memorial in central Prague. As the Monument to Soviet tank crews was still a national cultural monument at that time, his act of civil disobedience was considered "hooliganism" and he was briefly arrested. Another of Černý's conspicuous contributions to Prague is "Tower Babies," a series of cast figures of crawling infants attached to Žižkov Television Tower. In 2005, Černý created Shark, an image of Saddam Hussein in a tank of formaldehyde. The work was presented at the Prague Biennale 2 that same year. The work is a direct parody of a 1991 work by Damien Hirst, The Physical Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone Living. In 2006, the work was banned twice, first in Middelkerke, Belgium, then in Bielsko-Biała, Poland. With respect to the Belgian situation, the mayor of that town, Michel Landuyt, admitted that he was worried that the exhibit could "shock people, including Muslims" in a year already marred by tensions associated with Danish cartoons depicting the prophet Mohammed. The Deputy Mayor of Bielsko-Biała, Zbigniew Michniowski, contacted the city-funded gallery, galeria BWA on September 9, 2006 and threatened dire consequences if the artwork were not removed promptly[citation needed]. In response, Shark was transported to the Szara gallery, in the nearby town of Cieszyn. The mayor of Cieszyn, Bogdan Ficek, distanced himself from Bielsko-Biała City Hall's values. "I can not see any reason a politician should censor art," Ficek said.[4] His Entropa, created to mark the Czech presidency of the European Union Council during the first half of 2009, attracted controversy both for its stereotyped depictions of the various EU member states, and because it turned out to have been created by Černý and two friends rather than, as promised, being a collaboration between artists from each of the member states. Some EU members states reacted negatively to the depiction of their country. For instance, Bulgaria decided to summon the Czech Ambassador to Sofia in order to discuss the illustration of the Balkan country as a collection of squat toilets. For 2012 Summer Olympics Černý created "London Booster" - a double decker bus with mechanical arms for doing push-ups.

A prominent stand displays staff picks, which usually includes a mind expanding mix of obscure bands, usually from an obscure location and an, um, rather obscure point in rock history. So basically, Aquarius specializes in the obscure with very specific genres like kraut rock, prog rock, and all kinds of metal, but even the clueless can get a clue with the helpful reviews that you find slapped on most of the CDs. These reviews, personally crafted by Aquarius employees, describe a bit of the band's sound, influences, genre, or history.
