Jack vanzet 876 1169 Art | Express Yourself

via here.

Jack Vanzet is only 23, yet his work is full of confidence and self assurance. I guess 23 is a time for unbounded cockiness, but for most of us, this is usually a shaky back and forth kind of confidence that does not come through in our work. So it is especially impressive to see such a strong creative voice in such a young person. Personally this makes me feel inspired by the freedom and fun expressed here, and also for the color, form and technique.

After Liu Bolin watched the village where he worked bulldozed by the Chinese government, he created his series Hiding in the City. In the series, Bolin meticulously paints himself to blend in with landscapes as diverse as the grocery store to the Great Wall of China. In this way, he comments on the invisibility of artists within a society that fails to protect them. The series was so prolific and popular that he expanded it to Venice as a comment on the history of art, and New York to tackle the relationship between man and the object he creates.

In 2012, he was asked to take part in a series with fashion designers Gaultier, Valentino, Lanvin and Missoni that was featured in the March 2012 issue of Harper’s Bazaar magazine.

The work of Venezuelan artist Marilyn Rondón leads one to think: “Would every wall would be better with a giant hand-painted mural on it?”.
