Merry Christmas……………Christmas Art!

Let’s have a look at ┬ásome of the wonderful artwork that has been made over the years to celebrate Christmas.

We begin with Russian based artist 0331C and MOW and this wonderful tree for its scale and color.

And here we have some works made by Andy Warhol. If you are looking for a book to purchase with your gift card that you received a great idea is a book of holiday cards made by Andy over the years for the Tiffany company.

And the master Norman Rockwell!

In this clip we take a look at a wonderful incident that occurred in 1914. It was World War 1 and the men from two different countries put down their guns for one night of peace and celebrated Christmas.

This was made into a wonderful movie and here we see the street art interpretation. The street art is from London and Berlin. The war story featured soldiers from France, Scotland, and Germany. The movie is called Joyeux Noel and I enjoyed it! The clip is from the Telegraph U.K. :

And Frederick Hammersley, like Warhol also designed holiday greeting cards for others.

And representing the street art movement, Mr. Brainwash.

To close with we look at the next artist who will be featured, Isaac Cordal.

New Collage…..the Collector Series….the American Collector

Here we have a new collage by me! This work celebrates the collector’s house as sort of a museum, a work of art in itself. This work features three great American Artists of the 1960s, can you name them?

First up on the left we have Frank Stella. Stella is an American painter born in 1932. Stella attended Princeton University. Stella burst upon the international art scene after winning grand prize at the 1967 Tokyo Biennial of Paintings. Stella is perhaps best known for his work with the square or rectangle shape, but Stella had a remarkable grasp of color and also broke out from the basic geometric shapes he started with and developed his own highly dynamic organic shapes.

In the middle we have the King of Comic/ Fine Art Roy Lichtenstein. The artist was born in 1923. Lichtenstein beat Warhol to the comic book style of Pop Art that came to prominence in the early 1960s. Warhol tried comics as well, but Lichtenstein’s comics had a more polished, finished, and refined work and Warhol moved on to his soup cans and brillo boxes! ┬áLichtenstein attended the Art Student’s League of New York City as a teenager. Lichtenstein would go on to earn a MFA from Ohio State University. Lichtenstein was most famous for his use of Ben Day dots to add color. It was difficult to find an appropriate paper to do this study.

On the right we have my favorite artist of all time, Andy Warhol born in 1923. Here we have a great example of his sculpture work with his brillo boxes. Warhol would make art of grocery store containers and from Warhol Museum of Art we not only the Brillo box, but other examples as well.

I hope to post some more work soon!

This collage measures 12 by 12 inches and is comprised of variety of art and scrapbooking papers.

Have a creative day today!
