    Nighthawks, by Edward Hopper

    Nighthawks, by Edward Hopper

    Edward Hopper (1882-1967) was a pioneer of the modern realism movement in the United States. During a long career as an artist, Hopper had known both depression and success, and “Nighthawks”, painted in 1942, dates from one of his more productive periods when he was financially secure, in good health, and untroubled in his personal life.

    A Filmmaker's Guide to: Artists on Screen

    A Filmmaker's Guide to: Artists on Screen

    Caravaggio is my favourite painter, I have read multiple biographies on him, I have also seen a number of his works in real life. I have been keen to write an article explaining how to produce a Caravaggio-like effect on screen for a few years now but I was always scared of making it too long. So, I've tried my best to keep it to the bare essentials only and not go over the top about everything. There will be some references to paintings and the life of Caravaggio and so, the book "M: The Man Who Became Caravaggio" by Peter Robb may help if you're only just starting your Caravaggio journey. However, you can read this article without having read the book - the beginning of you Caravaggio journey can start here, I would be honoured to teach you about him.

    What Is Art?

    What Is Art?

    An artist by the name of Edgar Degas once said, “Art is not what you see, but what you can make others see.” Over the years many people have questioned what the true definition of art is and what can be considered art. According to Google art is, “works produced by human creative skill and imagination”, but once again what does it mean? The meaning can go far more beyond than just what us as human can create with our imagination. When I think of art, I think of how humans connect their perspective of the world in connection with their emotions to be able to create art.

    Disney + 'The Swing'

    It's no question that Disney draws inspiration from works of art—ranging from the beginning of time, until now—but one piece in particular has been referenced in a few of Disney's recent popular films, and a controversial piece at that.

    The isolation of artists is very evident in their daily lives, working in their studios alone with their thoughts and creativity. Sometimes the isolation can’t be avoided, but becomes part of the narrative of the artwork.
