Not everyone can be an Artist but a true Artist can come out of anyone”. Though there are so many talented Artists today in the world, some Artists have really aced their domain. Let’s have a look at the top 4 influential Artists from around the world:
Alexander Maw is a self-representing artist who was born in Cheltenham, United Kingdom, 1990. He was self-taught and mentored by his father. He is one those Artists who have got an iconic quality in their drawings and paintings. Though her artwork reflects the tradition of memento mori images, there is also a contemporary twist in it. Skillfully rendered and deeply thoughtful, the viewer is brought into a shadowy but contemplative world.
Jennie C. Jones
Jennie C. Jones is a conceptual Artist who was born in 1968 in Cincinnati, Ohio. She is an African-American artist living and working in Brooklyn, New York. She has various immersive audio installations. She incredibly explores sound and music through visual means. “Conceptualism,” she has explained, “allows the different media to occupy the same space.” She creates what appear to be minimalist paintings in grey and black with simple touches of colour. In fact, her paintings are acoustic panels that play micro samples of music from the famous jazz musicians. She manages her artistry in such a way that her artwork merges the visual art with sound, exploring subjects including minimalism, jazz and abstraction. Apart from these works, Jennie was awarded the Studio Museum’s prestigious Wein Prize. She has wonderfully created work from the remnants of sound transmission like tangled wires and audiotape.
Huma Bhabha is a Pakistani-American artist who was born in 1962 and is currently based in New York. She uses found materials to create some grotesque figurative forms that often appear partially dismembered or dissected. Huma sculpts poetic assemblages of tactile and the unconventional materials such as Styrofoam, air-dried clay, wire, cork and construction scraps. Huma’s species thread figurations and abstractions are incredible besides the fusing elements of architecture to form a landscape-like sense of place is something that is just felt but not described. Huma’s work transcends specifically to explore the universal concerns of all the cultures such as war, colonialism, displacement and longing. Her installations are the results of the pastel drawings and photographs that she generally creates. These installations work with ink to blend unnatural, expressive figuration with Modern abstraction.
