“Bakery Case, with its half-empty tray of frosted doughnuts, pies and a festooned wedding cake, summons references to influential artists such as Bonnard and Matisse, as well as Josef Albers’ color theory that the perception of color is altered by the colors around it. When Thiebaud paints an object or form, he famously surrounds it with multiple colors, often stripes or lines, of equal intensity, to create a halo effect—though you might not notice that unless you look closely. “They’re fighting for position,” he says of the colors. “That’s what makes them vibrate when you put them next to each other.”
The cakes and pies, the best known of Thiebaud’s work, are painted from his imagination and from long-ago memories of bakeries and diners.” via [Smithsonian]
Tonight I will have dreams of cake.
How a beautiful 3D rose was created by world-reknown street art painter, Edgar Mueller, for the Swedish royal wedding in 2010.
“Because of his grounding in traditional painting and modern communication, Müller uses a more simple and graphic language for his art. He paints over large areas of urban public life and gives them a new appearance, thereby challenging the perceptions of passers-by. The observer becomes a part of the new scenery offered. While going about their daily life, people change the painting’s statement just by passing through the scene.”

Masumi Nakaoka was born in Kyoto. She draws pictures of scenery she previously took photographs of, and during her reconstructions, invokes a sense of loss throughout her works.

Exams are coming, so I won’t be updating very frequently these two weeks. In the spirit of long nights and little sleep, I will hence leave you with some coffee paintings by Misato Suzuki. Yes my friends, acrylic, charcoal and coffee on canvas.
Goodbye for now!
