Artist of the moment…….Street Artist and Illustrator Belin

 

 

Belin is an amazing Spanish street artist renown for his unique style of work with the face and figure. Belin was born in a city located in the south of Spain called Linares. Belin’s work is a blend of surrealism, realism, and caricature.

Belin is short for the artist’s last name, Belinchon.

The artist often works on murals with other well known street artists including Otes.

When the weather isn’t cooperating with making graffiti, the artist turns to the art of sculpture.

In this clip we view the artist at work on mural in the Netherlands:

Belin shows remarkable innovation in his work. Often times he uses photographs for resources, but with his style of exaggeration one might think the artist just created a masterpiece from life!

Artist of the moment…….Erich Glendale

 

 

Erich Glendale is a First Nations artist born in Campbell River, British Columbia, Canada in the year 1972. Campbell River is a coastal city on the east coast of Vancouver Island. The artist represents the Kwakwaka’wakw Tribe of the Family of First Nations.

Glendale produces the traditional cultural items of First Nation’s Art including rattles, bowls, walking sticks, masks, and jewelry.

Price range information: Works range from $500 for jewelry up to $8,000 for large carvings such as masks.

The artist began carving in the 1990s.

Glendale’s favorite medium to carve with is a cedar. Glendale works mainly with yellow cedar but occasionally carves red cedar.

The artist sometimes works with other mediums including gold and silver.

My favorite works of this artist are his rattles of creatures of the sea. What detail and imagination!
