Emile Morel






Catégorie : pop-surréalisme low brow art art-numérique dessin pixel-art art contempor Culture
Description : Emile Morel crée des univers digitaux à la pointe du pixel-art. Ses visions fantasmagoriques peuplées de personnages hybrides, à mi-chemin entre merveilleux médiéval et enfer dantesque, mettent en scène les pulsions primitives, bestiales et idylliques d'une mythologie intimiste. Allégorie de la vie, de la souffrance et du désir, les œuvres d'émile surprennent par la luxuriance de leur détail et leur pouvoir d'évocation.


























Dick Whitson



















Dick Whitson was born and raised in Canton, Ohio. He knew from early childhood that he would be an artist, “if he grew up”. He attended Kent State University and graduated from Carnegie Institute of Technology (Carnegie-Mellon University) with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in 1952. After two years in the U.S. Army Signal Corps as an illustrator/designer he went to work as an advertising designer with the General Electric Company in Schenectady, N.Y. He later established his own graphic design studio in Philadelphia and in 1962 joined Armstrong Cork Company in their advertising department. He retired from Armstrong as Creative Director of Advertising Design Services in 1995.

During the years at Armstrong he was very active with the Actors’ Company of Pennsylvania, designing and painting scenery for over 50 stage productions.

In his retirement he has maintained his creative pace painting in both oils and watercolors. His work is representational with an emphasis on composition and design.

Furr became the youngest artist to have ever officially painted Queen Elizabeth II, when in 1995 - at the age of twenty eight - he was invited by the Queen to paint her portrait at Buckingham Palace. The work was commissioned by and hangs at the Royal Overseas League, St James, London.

Art work from Christian Furr is to feature in a floor at 45 Park Lane - the third hotel in the UK from the Dorchester Collection, which opens in London at the end of October 2011.

In June 2004 the artist collected an AoC Gold Award at the House Of Commons, given to further education college alumni who have gone on to achieve excellence in their chosen field. Former winners include Jamie Oliver, Betty Boothroyd and Jimmy Choo.

Alessandro Scarabello







Alessandro Scarabello's artistic research is greatly distinguished by his attention to technique and close observation of social and cultural phenomena. He works with oil, acrylic, spray and markers on canvas, examining broad issues which permeate and often overwhelm the lives of individuals. These include the meaning of power, open and disguised violence, solitude, processes of marginalization, the effects of mass media, behavioral stereotypes, the spread of Western influence and the poisoning of the environment. Scarabello’s language is dream-like and surreal, yet it paradoxically pushes one to closely examine the blunt reality of today’s human condition.
