The Art Message of Peter Tunney

Celebrity Portraits Made With Waste and Instruments by Mister C

The art of Christian Pierini is that kind of master piece you don't even think it was possible to do with such kind of objects. Recreate in deatails portraits with old instruments and other scrap objects is what he does and more than that, it's absolutely astonishing! Christian Pierini Macêna or Mr (C), is Carioca, from Rio de janeiro. He is the CEO of Union Groups and Artists Theatre West Zone and also he is a producer, cultural and visual arts teacher and musician. These works are from a workshop of Visual Arts for students of municipal schools and lasts 12 months. The main objective of the course is the awareness of environment through art. Christian Pierini worked for two years as an assistant artist for Vik Muniz. During this period, he was one of those responsible for the production of logos for Fantastic (Globo) and Rock In Rio 2011. From this experience, the artist decided to bring the technique of installation to the pedagogical field and teaches how to reuse electronic scrap to make art.

Comic Book Artist: Dan McDaid

Although most people think that comic book artists work mainly for big companies as Marvel or DC, this is actually untrue. Dan McDaid, for example, is more about a commissioned comic book artist, working more on freelance projects than regular issues. I really admire him for this, as he has lots of freedom to mix and remix elements of the comics universe. You can check more about Dan at his Blog.

Comic Book Artist: Greg Capullo

Regardless the fact that Todd Macfarlane is the creator of Spawn and most of the characters of the series, the credits of great part of the series success should definetely goes to Greg Capullo. Greg has being the main penciler for the series for quite sometime, creating a really remarkable detailed and sick style. It's really a pleasure to feature him here, since he was one of my favorite artists back on the 90's when I started drawing. You can check more of his recent artworks at his Devianart profile.

Awesome Colorful Oil Paintings

Sebastien Feraut aka Niark1 is an awesome Illustrator and painter with an incredible style that is hard to describe but easy to fall in love with. His paintings are colorful and very illustrative but so intriguing that the more you look the more you like it, check it out! His style results in a misuse of codes and values. Conventions have no place to be, catch all the crazy. The standards of different cultures are reinterpreted with any the audacity of its own. And it still holds the road. Indeed cartoon-inspired characters are disfigured or rather transfigured, like the comic spirit that emanates from his work Niark1 and which adds a touch of burlesque.Lissue Gallery

Interview with Young Artist Saad Moosajee

With only 15 years of life and full of talent, the British Saad Moosajee give us an exclusive interview where he talks about his works, the influences he had at the beginning of his journey and much more, check it out! For more visit www.saadart.com Let's start with the usual, introduce your self to our readers. Hey, I'm Saad Moosajee, a self taught 15 year old artist hailing from England who is currently living in America. I'm a big fan of sports, music, and art in particular. You still very young, how did you manage to teach yourself everything you know? Mainly a trial and error process. I use roughly 3 programs; Photoshop, Cinema 4D and Poser occasionally. I didn't know any decent tutorial sites when I started so as far as learning the technical aspects of the programs I would just keep trying artistically. I also learned a lot by looking at surrealist & futuristic painters work like H.R Giger & Salvador Dali. So do you think the influences of surrealism you had while trying to learn more, reflects on the work you do today? Yea, partially. I am still pretty influenced by surrealists like Dali and Magritte but less than I was before. These days I get more inspired by my surroundings, especially tagging & graffiti and artists like Banksy. You definitely define a style by the influences you have and that took you to work with some top clients, how did you get your first big job? My first job was for a exhibition called tiger translate, which was produced by the tiger beer company from Singapore. The exhibition was global and curated by kult.sg. They contacted me via email so I am not exactly sure how they found me. However, when you start out freelancing its always best to send your work to as many agencies & potential clients as possible, that may help get that first big job. Besides getting big jobs you also part one of the biggest art groups of today, how did you become part of slashthree? I am actually the creative director of slashTHREE currently and have been for over 2 years. One of my good friends started the site in April 2007, and when I was just starting out I applied to become an artist. In August after submitting a few works and becoming more involved I asked to become creative director at the time we were still very small and being creative director wasn't really a big deal as we only had three exhibitions. Since then me and the rest of the staff worked hard and 2 years later we are producing some high quality exhibitions every 3-4 months, and recently finished our first book which you can find out about here slashTHREE Expressions Book Describe us your work on slashthree as a creative director. In winter of 2007 was when we started getting more serious. We began working on v3 of the site and with it planned to expand heavily on what we already had. My job then was to find suitable artists to add to the team and curate packs. Shortly after the release of our v3 in August followed by our first big exhibition Odyssey we began getting more attention. From there my work shifted to mainly focus on curating the exhibitions, managing artist relations, applications, and outside projects such as our book. Do you have any upcoming projects we should know about? I recently completed a piece for the 2009 desktopography exhibition that will be released very soon, in addition to that, I've got some stuff coming in relation to the Keystone Design Union. You can also expect to see more stuff regarding slashthree and you will see it for sale on subism.co.uk soon I hope. Ok Saad, thank you very much for this interview and I'll leave the last words for you. Check out slashthree.com
