A Year in Review – Art

A Year in Review - ArtIf I have to be honest, writing the art sections are probably the 2nd hardest posts to write about for “Thought I Might Suggest”(The hardest section will be written about tomorrow). Trying to find artists to feature on this site who produce exciting,  visually eye pleasing work is no easy task. I feel like this year, I found an eclectic mix of artists, famous and emerging, young and old, to appreciate. Here are some of my favorites of the year:

  • Fornasetti: I always saw his work in the most random places. I finally discovered who the artist in question was and leapt at the chance to find out more about him.
  • Yayoi Kusama: I saw pictures of the installation online and it was too pretty not to feature on this site.
  • El Anatsui: I saw this exact piece in person and was blown away by its beauty.
  • Phillip Barlow: I can stare at his paintings for hours, they just look just so realistic.
  • Herb Williams: Does anyone actually draw with crayons anymore?
  • Paola Pivi: If colorful polar bears existed, it would make me a very happy girl.

  1. Thanks so much for your kind words. El Anantsui is one of my favorite artists and it is an honor to be mentioned in the same blog with his work. Happy New Year!

    • You have no idea how excited I got when I saw your comment. To have my writing appreciated by the artist featured is such a huge compliment. I am such a fan of your work. The fact that you use something as simple as a crayon to make some amazing art pieces is awe-inspiring. I only hope that my blog becomes more popular in the new year so I can expose others to great art work. Happy New Year to you too!
