appreciate: Chloe Cockburn

It is still a common misconception that people can’t  find the time to do all the things they are interested in. If anyone needs yet another example that this is possible, look no further than Chloe Cockburn. Cockburn is an acclaimed civil rights lawyer by day, but when she isn’t working on policy reform, she is painting a collection of gorgeous abstract … Continue reading

appreciate: Wilfred Lang

With the multiple creative tools that become available everyday, it has become difficult for an artist to take an overexposed muse and breathe new life into it.  Artist Wilfred Lang has done just that, taking an abstract approach when it comes to painting city skylines and urban landscapes. His artistic interpretations on architectural subjects that … Continue reading

appreciate: Jaeyeol Han

It’s funny how we as people can look at a person, a place, a thing (a noun basically) and see completely different things. In South Korean artist Jaeyeol Han’s portrait paintings, he allows the viewer to see not only the subject’s face, but the feelings that lies beneath it.

His inspiration for his work comes from his interest in nature and geology, which he had a masters degree in. He was a … Continue reading

Appreciate: Pierre Soulages

French artist Pierre Soulages is a jack of all trades. He is a sculptor, engraver, but is mostly known for his abstract paintings. Most of his works are a study on the color black. He creates striations in the black surface in his paintings to so that when light is reflected on it, the black … Continue reading

Appreciate: Gerhard Richter

This painting, Abstract Painting (809-4), is the creation of German visual artist Gerhard Richter. Just a few days ago, it was sold at Sotheby’s auction house for $34.2 million dollars. That is not a typo: $34.2 million dollars. What makes Richter’s paintings so high in value? Richter is one of the most important living artists of … Continue reading
