Artist of the moment……Street Artist Escif

 

Escif is a fantastic street artist from Spain. Escif is not looking to make decorative art, but rather to wake people up and open their minds to his reality.

Escif tries to think about concept rather than shape in his art. His concepts are very unique and my favorite work in the gallery shows an automobile falling to the ground and landing on it’s roof. The execution of the work was great and looking at on a computer screen is still great when you realize the entire work is 4 to five stories tall.

Escif is based of Spain. Much of his work can be found in Valencia, Spain.

In this very brief clip we see a timelapse of the artist in action. Its great to see the fun he has created abstract shapes in the fence:

Here we view a very large mural completed in Spain. Many closeups and different angled views are shown:

Artist of the moment……Manolo Valdes

Manolo Valdes was born in Valencia, Spain in  the year 1942. For his artistic education Valdes attended the School of Fine Arts located in San Carlos, Spain. He attended this school for two years. Valdes works in many mediums including painting, sculpture, printmaking, and collage.  For his sculpture work the artist works in bronze for the most part.  The artist has done some awesome works in terracotta. These works have a very fresh and modern aura about them.

Manolo Valdes works out of Madrid, Spain and New York City.

In this clip a wonderful tour thru a botanical garden in New York City showing many works of Manolo Valdes:

I love the modern look of Valdes’ women made with collage. Not only do they have very feminine features, sometimes no nose, but the papers used for the clothing or fan are excellent in their variety and patterns.

Price range information: Works range from $4,000 to $800,000.
