THAT'S CONTEMPORARY ART
Is all about Visual Arts today
or what in our past could have
influenced contemporary artists.

Some of those artists are renowned,
some are emergent for now,
but all of them have a true talent
that deserves to be seen.

As an Art Market professional,
I'm more than open to any visual
suggestion you may have..
Hope your eyes will enjoy the meal !
Anais.

SHORT CLIP HERE ——> http://vimeo.com/55522269

The video installation Citizens Band (2012) offers a subtle, poignant portrait of the musical culture of four immigrants: two in Australia and two in France. Filmed by an attentive camera, the performances of a Cameroonian, an Algerian, a Mongolian and a Sudanese capture our attention with their dignity and the uncommon richness of the faraway worlds they bring us. One after the other, they introduce us to: a traditional technique of water drumming performed by women, songs that have come out of rai music, throat singing accompanied by horse-head fiddle and a demonstration of a great whistling tradition – all executed in various ordinary public places, from a public swimming pool and the Paris metro to the streets of Australia. Citizens Band is an ode to those who, even in exile, manage not only to keep up their connection with their culture, but also to share it with others.”

G
othic Fauna, Dirt Wolf, 900 Aquatic Invertebrates, Denizens of Homo-Avien District, Cordyceps Toad and Untitled.

Drawing on the influence of anime, comic books, Otaku culture, and animal compendiums, the work of Nicholas Di Genova features an encyclopedic range of constructed creatures ranging from soft and nurturing to calculating and military. A vast and intense fabricated history acts as a backdrop to the hundreds of interconnected species, families and rival clans that find themselves projecting their habits, relations and environments to their viewers. Working with ink and animation paints, Di Genova’s paintings on mylar highlight his skill with line and his ability to manipulate colour. Always intense and intricately executed, Di Genova’s work rivals the quality of any fine art painter while firmly establishing itself on the fringes of contemporary art.”
