Summer Art Inspirations from Monika’s Art Boutique

Summer Art Inspirations!
Thank you for another great start to summer!
‘Tis the season for summer fun, beach combing, traveling and lots of great summer crafts! With the hot weather here, we don’t want to forget to be sure to take advantage of being inspired by our surroundings both indoors and outdoors! Here are my top 5 summer artsy activities and crafts to help you stay creative this summer!
1-Photography-Playing around with Adventure
I try to go somewhere new every year and each time, I never forget to take time to go out and photograph places I visit. Whether you have a really advanced camera or you’re using your smartphone, taking photos is a great way to play around with seeing new things on your adventures this summer! Be sure to take photos of all sorts of things-people, architecture, plants, animals or still life items. In the fall, you will have compiled a nice collection and maybe even some images that you could paint in studio!
2-Nature-Rose Bead Necklaces
Not sure what to do with all the roses from events this summer? Learn how to make rose bead necklaces! It’s very easy and a nice way to preserve memories from summer weddings, events or your own garden this summer.
3-Painting Outside
Grab a few supplies and take it outside! Maybe you have a nice yard and you can host a summer painting party with your family or friends! Any which way, painting outside is a great way to see colour and light in a new way and enjoy the good weather at the same time!
4-Upcylcing Fabric and Clothing
Summer is a great time to get creative with upcycling clothing! Love that long sleeve from last season, make it a tank top! Use scarves to make summer tote bags or have fun with using all that is in your fabric bin to make fascinators! The possibilities are endless!
5-Garden Rock Painting
This is one of my favourite summer art activities with kids because you get to go on a rock hunt, get some fresh air and make rock paintings that can be used as garden markers, decor or even gifts! When we have kids camps, ladybugs are always popular and are so easy to do! A great activity to do with your kids this summer to get them outside, busy or even involved in the garden!
Above all, just stay creative! Try one or all of these activities and be sure to send us your photos via email or use hashtag #monikasartboutiquesummercontest on instagram until August 15 and we just might feature your project and enter you to win a prize pack from our gallery including:

Renøyr Art

Renøyr is (mainly) a painter, DJ, composer and graphic designer. Renøyr’s main source of inspiration is music. Renøyr’s work is bounded with music, the rhythms you can’t control, from both digital and analog sources: Spotify, old scratchy, dusty vinyls, OST and the music he produced. Basically, Renøyr paints something you can listen and also watch, observe, feel. Renøyr’s workflow is peculiar: sitting in his studio for hours listening his favorite music albums in order to determine the colors he will use. Then he take action, performing the sounds, the notes, the vibrations on canvas – or other surfaces such as skateboards, aluminum and wooden panels.BlueLines2.jpg

Renøyr most acclaimed collections are the LP collection (100cm or 90cm Ø diameter), EP collection (24” Ø diameter) and the Skateboart collection.

At the moment Renøyr is working on a new series called 16:9, inspired by hunting, beautiful movies. Learn more about the work here: https://renoyr.com/ 

Meet Yolanda D. Mozdzen from New York

Yolanda D Mozdzen is a New York based artist who has been creating riveting, unique artwork since the age of 5.

Yolanda is widely known as the Humanitarian Painter because she has been donating her enchanting portraits and original landscapes to various charities throughout the US.

Yolanda’s inventiveness and mastery are superbly powerful in capturing a vision and conquering a thought. With no formal art training, her enticing creations are composed in her soul from her need to inspire. “My paintings are based on what my grandfather always said, “Your mind is a camera. Take mental pictures of anything and keep it in your mind; retrieve it when you paint.”

Yolanda is a visionary; she paints only in candlelight while listening to inspirational music. She has donated original creations to Mount Sinai Hospital, The American Heart Association, The AIDS Walk, The Fire Department of New York, and more. Her goal is to utilize her vision and talent and generate awareness for causes that touch her heart.

Gilda Garza-Mexican Artist Shakes Up Art World

Attachment_1527635430 (1).png

www.gildagarza.com 

Gilda Garza is a Mexican artist born in Sinaloa, Mexico. She started to paint as young as she can remember, a generational talent passed down to her from her grandmother.

Living in one of the most dangerous places in Mexico, Sinaloa, she was surrounded by war and kidnappings in her family. Her paintings show all of the raw emotions from these impactful events in her life.

She believes the best works of art happen when pain and suffering turn into inspiration and creativity.

Having gone through these experiences has only formed her into an even stronger woman who captivated what she was going through into beautiful pieces of art.

Every piece reflects a moment in the artist’s life.

Gilda’s Playboy painting was featured on the cover of Playboy Mexico’s February 2018 issue. She is the second painter to have art featured on the cover, behind Andy Warhol in January 1986. She is also the first artist to exhibit at the Omnia Nightclub in Las Vegas.

Have You ever heard of the term ‘Gesamtkunstwerk’ the dream of Ludwig van Beethoven? Bringing art together into one experience and thus improving the different forms. Franck Marco takes this to a whole new level. He combines two of his passions, painting and playing the drums. The results are amazing and his art that is always evolving, makes Your heart skip a beat.

Franck Marco has found a way to combine these two forms of art in an inspirational subtle and improvised dialogue.  A unique idea always evolving. He uses brush-sticks and other tools found or invented. So who is Franck Marco, and where does he get his inspiration? Franck Marco has been active on the music scene from the age of 6 onwards. He knows what it takes and has been playing on all major scenes and festivals. His paintings are breathtaking as You can see here.

Bringing a unique performance. He combines the two forms of expession in a singular performance for a colorful silence, a percussive chaos and a reflected accidental destiny.

Michigan-based artist Lauren Bigelow pairs detailed, lifelike images with abstract, expressive elements. Her work combines the controlled nature of representational art with the dynamic qualities of geometric and intuitively-drawn lines and shapes. Her contrasting approaches to drawing suggest the importance of both careful observation and creative innovation in our modern world.

As a sophomore at Pennsylvania State University, Lauren is working toward a Bachelor’s degree in Digital Multimedia Design. In addition to continuing her fine art career, she plans to expand her creative audience by becoming a graphic designer.

A message from Monika!  
 
 Congratulations to the 2018 Body Painting Winners!
First Place: Vera Chen, Vancouver, BC
Currently a Student at Blanche Macdonald
The idea of creation comes from the plastic and paper cutlery of the food court. People use forks, spoons, cups, etc. every day, causing a lot of garbage to pollute the environment. Therefore, the use of these materials together to extend the variability of the material into a beautiful art creation. Plastic spoons and forks are used to create beautiful roses and twined vines. The paper cups are cut into flowers. Combining recylced plastic and paper cutlery with artistic paint is a new idea.
Second Place: Jenny Walton-Calgary, Alberta
Bees as an animal totem have very significant meanings and implications in the realm of spirituality. They are progressive, industrious, and hard-working, hence the term “busy bee”. Since they play a key role in almost all the natural world around us, my design is inspired by bees and the importance of their survival. Bees fit a very specific role in nature pollinating other plants. This is necessary to the on-going life cycle of many crops. Honey bees – wild and domestic – perform about 80 percent of all pollination worldwide. A single bee colony can pollinate 300 million flowers each day. Grains are primarily pollinated by the wind, but fruits, nuts and vegetables are pollinated by bees. Seventy out of the top 100 human food crops – which supply about 90 percent of the world’s nutrition – are pollinated by bees.
Third Place: Don Hilaby, Vancouver, BC
This is Breann, she is a visitor from another galaxy here to witness the beauty of our eco systems and the nature that thrives within it. She brings with her a message that we have the most beautiful planet in the entire solar system and we need to show our planet its eco systems and nature the love and respect it deserves. We are reminded to all do what we can in order to preserve our eco-systems. In doing our part, we will see that our love and respect will be reflected back to us,  giving us the most beautiful planet to continue to enjoy for lifetime to come. There are many hearts hidden within the art work symbolizing the love and respect that nature and our eco-systems show back to us.
Congratulations to all the competitors this year! Everyone did an amazing job!
