Artist of the moment………Mark Eberhard

 

Mark Eberhard is an outstanding painter of floral and bird imagery. Mark Eberhard was born in the year 1949.

Eberhard attended the University of Cincinnati earning a B.F.A. The artist went on to earn a M.F.A. from Yale University.

What I enjoy most about this artist is his sense of design and vivid color. Though his birds are sometimes painted as floating on water, the water doesn’t show any ripples or circles. Its just a flat shape of color. Simple but ┬ábeautiful.

Price range information: Sorry none available.

Artist of the moment……Belgium street artist ROA….

ROA is an up and coming street artist from Ghent, Belgium born in 1975. He is best known for making works in black and white that include wildlife. This artist is the Bob Kuhn of the street art world. Some great mixed media works are done with spray paint on pochoir. ROA also has worked with gouache.

The artist burst upon the national scene when a recording studio hired him to paint the outside of their locale with a rabbit. The neighbors were unhappy, but in the end ROA piece was able to keep its original location.

Some works are as large as two stories.

In this clip the artist paints a large bird.

A great underground movie featuring the work of ROA. A wall containing a zoo!

Here we visit the artist working at http://www.aviary.com producing one of  the birds the artist is known for.

In addition to these works the artist has also done gallery shows. No price range is available for a certain medium and I am unable to form a pricing schedule.

ROA is an artist in very high demand. He has worked in Chicago, Illinois, San Juan, Puerto Rico, and Johannesburg, South Africa.

Love the street movement! Don’t fight it, embrace it! See it not only as a form of art, but also journalism. Artists used to be revered for their creativity and ideas.
