At the 2019 Grammy's Cardi B wore a very beautiful gown. in a dress that looked like a clam opening up she reminded of the famous painting of Venus. Pearls, glamour, beauty and popularity I am completely obsessed with this LOOK. Cardi B is definitely one Ill keep my eyes on.
Here's my last music video of the week. I will be instead doing music video of the month. I am really inspired by this song. I want so much to be apart of the sky cult. I want to wake up in a castle in the sky. I too want wings so that I can fly. <3
ClassicalWave is an art movement in the 21st Century about artists becoming inspired by classical art.
Joana Ceddia is a painter and a youtuber. In this video the young artist re-creates one of the most classical portrait in history: The Mona Lisa. What's fascinating is how Joana describes her process. One small comment is when she says how the only person she thought could rock no eyebrows is Jeffree Star. Also, Joana calls a highly detailed part of the original painting as Leonardo Da Vinci's "flex", I enjoyed the part where she struggles with painting of the background, of course the rocky and slimy terrain has puzzled many people since the beginning.

Velvet Buzzsaw is a movie about the introduction of the neo-baroque of the art market .
The spirit of the artist who creates from his soul and not for the peddling of money(although this isn’t necessarily a bad thing.) has a dramatic influence. Velvet Buzzsaw is about how the art market and those who participate have become blinded by the true reality of art, and so suffer at the hands of a master artist. A master artist whose works are so intense they cause death to it's viewers.
My favorite parts are when the very handsome Jake Gyllenhaal's character( an art critic) talks about the spirit of the painter whose undiscovered work is suddenly found and blown into the art market. One by one each person who gazes up the art work experiences a shift. This shift is was Jake describes as coming from the spirit. In this moment a gallery owner played by the fierce Rene Russo says “That’s a bit baroque don’t you think?”
THis is my favorite quote in the film because I believe that are experiencing a shift in the art world. We are all right now going through an era similar to the baroque and even the Hellenistic world. Neo-Baroque is the only way I can describe this moment.
Another line said in the movie was the character Coco (assistant) who continually finds dead bodies throughout the movie. She is young and eager to replace the 40 and 50 year olds who dominate the art world. The line I found funny was that Rene Russo says “What was your name again... Rococo?” I find this hilarious because the rococo movement is the younger and last phase of the baroque.
I feel like a lot of Gen X’ers in general deal with baroque feelings and attitudes. They focus of the suffering, anguish and spirit of the world. Since I am in a younger generation I feel like my own millennials are seeking love from a fresh and pleasant world similar to the rococo world.
This is just my own perspective on the Velvet Buzzsaw. If you're an artist I recommend this film. If your not an artist, then you should still watch this movie and have fun.
In a dream Selena appeared to me.
I was in awe. She asked me to create art in her name.
And so, I ventured on a mission to create art in her honor and beauty.
Selena, to you I dedicate every work in you name.
Oh my goodness. Kylie Jenner owns several Andy Warhol pop-art works including dollar signs and Marilyn Monroe portraits, . Damien Hirst's Butterflies with colored hearts. And portraits of barbie in the glam room. How beautiful!

Wow has my world been opened.
I was raised Catholic. Then stopped believing and became an ex-catholic. Now I don't really know what to believe. I do believe in this, I decided to head back and look again at all of the art made by Catholics.
Over time I saw more and more art. The Catholics are true believers in art. I have seen many great wonders in art thanks to The Catholics.
From shocking to loving. I saw and I have taken in the inspiration of catholic art into my creations.
Pop art almost died. But, with a gust of youthful wind and energy, the flame has grown stronger and brighter than ever before.
