All artists were self-taught. Some of the works are anonymous: they had been abandoned or left behind on farms or on the streets, but they were rescued by people. Now they are preserved because of their beauty, artistic value and historical meaning.
Ted Gordon, an artist from Kentucky, drew hundreds of portraits with simple curved lines. Through these lines he created these complex portraits.
I found the story of Eugene Von Bruenchenhein (1910-1983) fascinating. He was a simple man who worked at a bakery during the day. In his spare time, however, he was a passionate artist. During his lifetime he created thousands of works: paintings, sculptures and photographs.
His ardent spirit vibrates in his masterpieces.
His work has been showcased in different museums in Chicago, New York city, London and Venice.
Have you been to any interesting exhibition lately?
Talking about creative endeavors, I will take a break from blogging to finish writing a story.
Enjoy the spring air - or the autumn air, depending on the hemisphere you live on...
