milenko stevanovic is an art student from belgrade, whose main interests are landscape & figurative painting – he enjoys working directly from life. i love the bright colours and thick brush strokes.
I’m Kris and I like drawing, embroidery and taking pictures. I particularly enjoy souvenirs from the seaside, going for afternoon tea, trips to ikea and pandas.
it’s art history time again, folks!
Ivan Ivanovich Shishkin (1832 – 1898) was a Russian landscape painter, his method was based on analytical studies of nature. He became famous for his forest landscapes, and was also an outstanding draftsman and a printmaker. His works are notable for poetic depiction of seasons in the woods, wild nature, animals and birds.
hey dorks, it’s art history time. if you’re not familiar with the classic frontier paintings by albert bierstadt – you will be now. you owe it to yourself to stare at these bad boys. that light! that detail! oh wow, i could just imagine a million reproductions hanging in thrift stores & seventies living rooms the world over and not getting a second glance (shame).
jason bennett is so talented, it makes me want to cry!
