A Moving Tribute

Vhils's awesome depiction of Amália Rodrigues’ face made with black and white cobblestones is a moving tribute now enhancing the beauty of one of Lisbon’s most typical areas.

When something really sad happens, a Portuguese saying states that “it gets tears flowing from cobblestones on the pavement”.  It makes sense to refer to this since our feature today focuses on a beautiful artwork made of cobblestone and created to pay a tribute to the greatest Portuguese “fado” singer, Amália Rodrigues (July 1, 1920 – October 6, 1999).

An Explosion of Colours

Truong Buu Giam’s awesome paintings display an overwhelming explosion of colours, challenging the limits of conventional art and subtly blending Eastern and Western Art traditions.

Very much in tune with the editorial line of this blog, the artist we are featuring today states the following about Art: “Art is an international language, it doesn’t matter what race you are, where you come from, you have a feeling when you listen to a song, look at a painting, you have your emotion, only you know it in your soul, so Art touches the heart and makes people feel.”

Dreamland Cityscapes

Sunga Park’s fragmented watercolours display mesmerizing and extremely beautiful cityscapes, which seize our senses and soothe our eyes.

Mark Twain once described the Mississippi Valley as being “reposeful as a dreamland, nothing worldly about it…” In fact, this could easily suit Sunga Park’s watercolours of cityscapes.

Fallen Leaves

Susanna Bauer’s stunning crocheted leaf sculptures are incredibly delicate and mesmerizing art works, which defy our imagination and seize our attention.

“Anyone who thinks fallen leaves are dead has never watched them dancing on a windy day”, stated Shira Tamir, an Israel born and New York based eclectic artist. This could well be adapted to describe Susanna Bauer’s uncommon, extremely delicate and deeply mesmerizing art works made out of dead leaves.
