Death Art Can Make You Sick Or Healthy / The Great Contemporary Artist & Art Healing Movement

Artist and Oriental medical doctor, Jon Tsoi believe that art can heal. I have always been a strong believer of this. He feels that certain color can heal certain parts of the body for example, blue  is good and can heal the human liver,  yellow is great of the digestive system, white good for lungs, red increase blood flow and can heal the heart, while the color of black is very good for the  kidney. Art can also heal depression he feels that art can make one evil also. This blog is my first time ever hearing about Mr. Tsoi but I will continue to conduct research on him.

Torrence Hill on Sargam Griffin (artist)

I like Sargam Griffin because creating art gives her peace and she knows this is what she was meant to do. Her style is a mixture of oil based paints and she has a passion for great depths, she feels her paintings are complete when they are independent of her. I feel the same way about my work of art. Art is a means in which we can communicate, art is inspirational.

Hirt’s: Shark & Goat anatomy

It is something we all must face as humans, and the art work of Hirst's makes his viewers realize this. Hirt’s uses a shark anatomy to make his audience face this. I feel that this art work is smart and clever. Nothing is going to stop death. It is something that all God’s creations must face. The artist goes further and uses other animals such as goats. The aesthetics and medium he used to create this work of art is mind blowing. I am a huge fan of this artist and he was also an artist on our final.

Heroes and Monsters Exhibit

The Heroes and Monsters Exhibit at the Brigham Young University or BYU Museum of art focus on the mythology of the hero’s journey. This type of story can be found in Star Wars and Alice in Wonderland. This is an exhibit I would to see one day because my own art work also focus the mythology of the hero’s journey.

Optical Illusion

Everyone I was browsing the web looking up optical illusion art, you all have to check this work of art out and tell me what you guys think. At first I thought this was a graffiti artist. His style, technique, and even the medium used are so different. There is a person on youtube who stated that this is not an optical illusion but only perspective/atmospheric perspective manipulation. He and I have been going at one another about this work of art. Please tell me what you all think of this..

Behind the Rhetoric: The Real Iran | BBC Documentary

Although this blog is supposed to be about contemporary art but I liked to take the opportunity and share with you some insides about Iran.
During our quarter we all discussed many different subjects and I have been asked by many of my wonderful classmates if Iran is what they see in the news or not. It's hard to explain what Iran is but I found a documentary done by BBC in Tehran that touches so many different level of the society. It does show the Good, The Bad and The Ugly. It's about an hour long but I tried to mark some sort of Index if you don't want to watch the whole thing.
It starts showing an overall image of Tehran.
00: 22: Young population and Music producer.
00: 26: Government supported anti US demonstration
00: 29: Uptown malls - Westernizes
00:48: Women's rolles in the society
1: 19: Government supported demonstrations
1:20: NO freedom of expression in publication

It's an overall truth. It didn't cover much about the wealthy part of Iran but in general was very accurate in the area that it covered.
