Studio Visit with Grimanesa Amoros

Wow! Grimanesa Amoros: Beauty, Bubbles, Light, Lines & Fun!

Grimanesa Amoros

On my always engaging tour today with Riva Blumenfeld of http://www.blumenfeldfineart.com/.

Mrs. Amoros took the time to take us on a journey through bubble islands, lines of lights and even into Times Square’s installation for the Armory show (Did you see it?)

These pieces made me feel extra serene, relaxed and even tickled somehow!

Now I’m working on a kid-friendy version- So watch our Art Adventures, here comes more fun!

Improv Wall Painting with Basquiat

Students were inspired by Basquiat’s loose, free- style improvisational paintings to paint with repetition of lines and shapes as well as using words and symbols.  A friend of Andy Warhol, Basquiat was different from graffiti artists because his words had a higher meaning than just a name on the side of a building.  He described his work, “I cross out words so you will see them more; the fact that they are obscured makes you want to read them.”
