Julius T. Csotonyi, paleoartist (dinosaurs and prehistoric subjects), wildlife artist and scientific illustrator, and three time winner of the Lanzendorf PaleoArt Prize for 2-Dimensional Art.

freelance natural history illustrator and biological sciences graduate.

His passion has been drawing dinosaurs since childhood, but over the years Julius has expanded his portfolio to include all branches of scientifically inspired artwork.

He has collaborated on projects with several major museums and book publishers from around the globe, including the National Geographic Society and the Royal Tyrrell Museum, working closely with scientists and drawing on his own scientific background. An MSc graduate of Ecology and Environmental Biology (University of Alberta), and a PhD graduate in microbiology (University of Manitoba),  Julius has published scientific papers on mutualisms in Utah and unusual bacteria at alien-looking deep ocean hydrothermal volcanic vents.

His scientific background has impelled him to strive to restore as realistically as possible the curiously alien environments that earth has hosted in its deep past. His style ranges from pencil and ink line drawings to watercolour, pastel, 2-dimensional digital illustrations and 3-dimensional digital models, and his work encompasses dinosaurs and other prehistoric life, sharks and other living animals, as well as some space art, fantasy and science fiction themes.

KENT WILLIAMS

KENT WILLIAMS | Heart is a Lock, Music is the Key | Scoop.it

Kent Williams has built up a formidable reputation as a powerful contemporary painter. His is a bold realism with combined attributes of abstraction and neo-expressionistic sensibilities. His work is characterized by strong gestural forms combined with areas of arresting detail, rendered with rich dynamic brushwork.
Williams’ approach to his subjects is often subjective and intense. Whether through multi-figured compositional complexity and suggestive narrative, or with the straight-forward lone human form, there is often autobiographical narrative at play. Favorite models, friends, and the artist himself all play a role in the human story of his paintings.
Williams lives in Los Angeles. He has two sons, Kerig Sun and Ian Kai.

Ali Abbas and his big mouse

The artist “Alan Lee” (alias Ali Abbas) was born in England in 1967 and has been dwelling in Germany since 1989.The son of a Pakistani Father and English Mother married his Austrian wife in Germany in 1991.He has been a practical artist all his life, and has always been fascinated by the sheer versatility and vastness of design.He has been practicing selfemployment since 2003 with his small IT services firm called Abbas-IT, located in Schwabach-Germany.Being a practical artist, he always wrestled with the sterility and plain stagnant practicality of consumer electronics and above all computers.For the last ten years he has been refining his ideas, putting pencil to paper and working on conceptual designs, in the effort to bring more colour into the otherwise very stale boring and actually just plain efficient world of electronics.Even though he has been making consumer electronics since 1990, he has only started taking it up as a passionate profession since 2000. Most of his work is made of different types of wood but he also uses Acrylic materials as well as metals and glass.After winning bronze in his first attempt ever at the DCMM in 2010, he went on to win bronze also in 2011in the International Coolermaster Case-modding contest.He also manged to attain 5 qualifications and 3 wins at the DCMM by winning gold and 2 times silver in 2011.But as he says, the next creation should always be better than the idea you thought was good yesterday,and it should be bettered again tomorrow.His love towards the prehistoric element “WOOD” dominates his work so far in past projects.

Artforum

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

Artforum is an international monthly magazine specializing in contemporary art.

The magazine is published ten times a year, September through May, along with an annual summer issue. Characterized by its 10½ inch square format, with each cover devoted to the work of a single artist, the magazine is widely known as a decisive voice in its field.

As well as in-depth articles and reviews of contemporary art, the magazine features book reviews, columns on cinema and popular culture, and numerous full-page advertisements from prominent galleries around the world.

Artforum was founded in 1962 in San Francisco by John P. Irwin, Jr. The next publisher/owner Charles Cowles moved the magazine to Los Angeles in 1965 before finally settling it in New York City in 1967, where it maintains offices today. The move to New York also encompassed a shift in the style of work championed by the magazine, moving away from California style art to Late modernism, then the leading style of art in New York City. The departure of Philip Leider as editor-in chief in 1971; and the tenure of John Coplans as the new editor-in chief roughly coincided with a shift towards more fashionable trends and away from Late modernism. A focus on Minimal Art, Conceptual Art, Body art, Land art and Performance art provided a platform for artists such as Robert Smithson, Donald Judd, Sol LeWitt and others. In 1980 after opening his own gallery in New York City Charles Cowlesdivested himself of the magazine. Sister magazine Bookforum was started in 1994.

Jiří Barta

Jiří Barta | Heart is a Lock, Music is the Key | Scoop.it

Jiří Barta (born 26 November 1948) is a Czech stop-motion animation director.

His films, many of which used the medium of wood for animation, garnered critical acclaim and won many awards, but after the fall of the communist government in Czechoslovakia he was unable to release anything for about 15 years (a situation similar to that faced by Russian animator Yuriy Norshteyn). Throughout the 1990s he tried to find funding for a feature film called The Golem, but ultimately only managed to complete a short pilot in 1996 (which can be viewed online). In 2006 he released his first computer-animated short film, and on March 5, 2009 he released a new puppet-animated feature film which was geared more towards a children's audience

Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec

Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec | Heart is a Lock, Music is the Key | Scoop.it

Henri Marie Raymond de Toulouse-Lautrec-Monfa or simply Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec (24 November 1864 – 9 September 1901) was a French painter, printmaker, draughtsman and illustrator whose immersion in the colourful and theatrical life of Paris in the late 1800s yielded a collection of exciting, elegant and provocative images of the modern and sometimes decadent life of those times. Toulouse-Lautrec – along with Cézanne, Van Gogh and Gauguin – is among the most well-known painters of the Post-Impressionist period. In a 2005 auction at Christie's auction house, a new record was set when La blanchisseuse, an early painting of a young laundress, sold for US$22.4 million.

From 1889 until 1894, Henri took part in the "Independent Artists' Salon" on a regular basis. He made several landscapes of Montmartre. At this time the 'Moulin Rouge' opened.

Tucked deep into Montmartre was the garden of Monsieur Pere Foret, where Toulouse-Lautrec executed a series of pleasant plein-air paintings of Carmen Gaudin, the same red-head model who appears in The Laundress (1888). When the Moulin Rouge cabaret opened, Toulouse-Lautrec was commissioned to produce a series of posters. His mother had left Paris and, though Henri had a regular income from his family, making posters offered him a living of his own. Other artists looked down on the work, but Henri was so aristocratic he did not care.

The cabaret reserved a seat for him and displayed his paintings.

Among the well-known works that he painted for the Moulin Rouge and other Parisian nightclubs are depictions of the singerYvette Guilbert; the dancer Louise Weber, known as the outrageous La Goulue ("The Glutton"), who created the "French Can-Can"; and the much more subtle dancer Jane Avril.
