“Can we even call it writing these days? When I first started I was a ‘writer’ in that I would fill notebook after notebook up with pencil scribbles. Now, I can hardly write legible cursive. No, these days it should be called typing or word processing. No one writes longhand, and if they do it has to be because they don’t have access to a processor.”
There is no doubt that originality in art is something very desirable, which can be noticed almost instantly, without hesitation. The best example lies here — You see a new painting and You know that this must be Zabinski. The originality in its best. Today we have exhibit His “To The Light” from His very private collection.
“For years, Averie’s life could be summed up by a simple set of whole numbers-15 years in school, 5 years living common law, 10 years at the same electronics firm, 6 years of marriage to Bruce. Now it’s fragments of fragments-a partial set of calculations at best. Until her father died she hadn’t wanted children and only thought of them as part of a vague future she hadn’t committed to yet.”
It is worth to mention that “a face” depicted on the painting belongs to British actress and model Cara Delevingne. All painting’s motives are submerged in very fine pink tone, which creates a well planned contrast to the model’s “shout”.
“Our consciousness has been so radically re-organized by information, which is mostly in the form of internet that it is simulating a hyper-world by itself! Not by machines, or aliens or gods; but by our own mind. Apart from the real world with 4-dimensional space-time.”
“What kind of social software must we be programmed with, or what magnitude of cognitive dissonance must we be suffering from, to resist and reject integrating this knowledge into the mainstream; why is the natural completion of the female’s sexual experience relegated to some niche, perverted, porn site category?”
“The fields are drenched with the quiet moans of judgment. I live in the sewers of diseased despair and broken expectations, in the cold wilderness of reducing hatred, clutching the key to release all my woes by disparaging another. Somewhere the light breaks, but I am stuck with the television glow.”
He loves big paintings and vivid colors. This artist never hesitates to think big and paint big. We can notice an excellent use of pop art and woman’s portrait motives. We can admire bold, sketchy brushes for laying down paint. Street art (on canvas) is trendy and this painting will look terrific in any spacious interior.
“My artwork is a release, it is emotional expression, it is relaxation. I’m not sure that if I tried to sell my art whether I would continue to find the joy that I do in my work, but who knows what the future holds.”
“Continuing. If you’re watching CNN, you’re wrong. If you’re reading Breitbart, you’re wrong. If you’re watching FOX, you’re wrong. If you’re reading The New York Times, you’re wrong. If you’re watching MSNBC, you’re wrong.”
Conrad spends a lot of time in sunny Spain, painting mainly on commissions. He knows how to enjoy life. He loves surfing. The positive energy found on sunny Spanish beaches seems to fill up all His artwork. There is also a bit of English history in many of His paintings and newspaper collages — Winston Churchill, James Bond and famous Hollywood films characters. Plus lots of portraits of beautiful women. Art is good and life is good. Undeniably.
This is a sophisticated, absorbing and poetic work of photographic art. The child’s firm earth must be left someday to go on with life. The series explores the mother and daughter relationship; it is about the physical and the emotional distance that increases as the child grows and gains independence. It is about the feeling of immense pride and also great pain.
Because they are Muslim and because they are darker than most Burmese, they have been persecuted, brutalized, marginalized, isolated, and subjected to genocide for decades. Many are tortured, raped and sold into slavery in Thailand.”
“If you look for perfect photos, do not follow me. You will not find it here. For me photography is more than technique, beauty or aesthetics that surrounds it.”
Art is eternal. Avant-garde is immortal. It pushes the boundaries of what is accepted as the norm or the status quo, primarily in the cultural realm. Today we welcome the visual art of Claudio Parantela who transports viewers to his eclectic personal world of psychological grotesque and unreal human experiences.

“In some western cultures, women don’t remove their underarm hair. If you are not familiar with this, it can be quite a shock.”
“Most members of the media in this country are all in a state of shock right now. These are the people who have been coming out of the woodwork in support of Hillary in Gala after Gala. And still Trump has connected with more voters having only himself behind the podium. It has been the great mistake of the liberal elite to discount the moral majority/ Middle America as ignorant or flat out stupid… with beliefs which are laughable and therefore irrelevant.”
“I wrap my arms around my shoulders and rub. It is colder than a dead pre-school teacher’s cunt out here. I have been told to stand regally in front of the door, to respect the stature and tradition of the position, but I am not wearing a tall fuzzy hat and this ain’t London luv. I pace back and forth watching the cars breeze by; each one stirs the frosty wind into some further, darker, perversion of itself. It is damn cold.”
