Janine was born in Freeport, Bahamas and resides in New York. Antoni’s primary tool for making sculpture is her own body. She has chiseled cubes of lard and chocolate with her teeth, and washed away the faces of soap busts made in her own likeness.
Gauguin was born in Paris but lived with his mother in Peru (1851-55). In 1871 he entered the firm of a Paris stockbroker. He painted on Sundays. Gauguin met Pissarro in 1875 and initially Gauguin’s work was close to the Impressionists in subject matter and color scheme. He exhibited with the group five times. By 1886 he had abandoned small, visible brush marks in favour of large areas of flat color and introduced an innovative color scheme that suggested a sense of heightened reality. Gauguin called this technique Synthetism and declared that he hoped painting would return to exploring the “interior life of human beings”. Starting in 1883 Gauguin had devoted himself solely to painting. His travels to Brittany in 1886 and, a year later, to Martinique and Panama, had led him to be inspired by primitive arts and he looked for ideas in Buddhist temple sculptures, Japanese prints, medieval tapestries, folk art and the architecture of Breton Churches. His work became concerned with dreams, myths and visions, influenced partly by his time in Tahiti, where he moved in 1891.
The Millinery Shop, 1884/90
Oil on canvas 100 x 110.7 cm
With its unusual cropping and tilted perspective, this painting seems to depict an unedited glimpse of the interior of a small, 19th-century millinery shop, one that might be seen while window-shopping. The young shop girl leans back to examine her creation, her mouth pursed around a pin and her hands gloved to protect the delicate fabric of the hat. Totally absorbed, she seems absolutely unaware of the viewer. Edgar Degas scraped and repainted both the milliner’s hands and her hat-in-progress so that both appear to be moving—an intended contrast with the finished hats on display to her left.
Moillon is the greatest French still-life painter of the seventeenth century. She spent her career in Paris. Her paintings are exquisitely rendered with painstaking attention to detail. She worked for a number of distinguished patrons, including the highest nobility of France and King Charles I of England. Most of her work dates from the 1630's, prior to her marriage in 1640.
Roy was born in New York. He had his first one-man exhibition in 1951 and worked as a commercial artist until 1957. He painted parodies of American twenties' art such as Remington's cowboy-and-Indian scenes. He used elements of commercial art, comics and advertisements in his drawings and painting. He produced large format paintings for the New York State Pavilion at the World's Fair in New York.
Leyendecker's mastery of the commercial art medium surpassed that of his better known follower, Norman Rockwell. Rockwell idolized Leyendecker. Leyendecker practically invented the American Santa Claus and did invent the New Year's baby. The U. S. Postal Service used his New Year's Baby on a stamp issued December 27, 1999 to commemorate the millenium.
ArtsrepubliK are a non-profit organisation dedicated to the support, finance and promotion of Education and Arts for young artists in developing nations. The site offers their art for sale in order to generate the funding, rather than seeking donations as we believe this to be another concept that perpetuates poverty across nations. We want to work side by side as equals with these artists, trying to offer some sort of assistance. The artists who exhibit through ArtsrepubliK have a lot to say through their work.

Claude Monet (1840-1926)
Monet was born in Paris, studied for one year at the Académie Suisse in Paris and completed a year’s military service in Algeria. He painted directly from nature and used quick brush stokes to record overall effect rather than detail. He and fellow artist, Renoir, did not use black or brown to describe shadows but instead contrasts of juxtapositioned colors.
Joseph Mallord William Turner (1775-1851)
A romantic landscape and marine artist, topographer and universal art visionary, pulsating with colour and atmospherics, Turner is considered Britain's greatest painter.
Henri Rousseau (1844-1910)
Henri, from Laval, France, and dubbed “Le Douanier” (customs officer) after his occupation found primitive art late in life. He at once mastered a landscape formula, and beginning after 1904 created more than twenty large fanatistic jungle paintings. They evidence his mastery of a formal language, oblivious of convention, that owes nothing to traditional methods. The images, smooth, vivid, and clearly defined, are flat and fluid against dense but dimensionless greenery, and although unreal and extraordinary, are rendered in meticulous botanical detail.
The majority of Neiman's brilliantly colored, stunningly energetic images focus on sporting events and leisure activities. He was born in St. Paul, Minnesota, and taught at the Art Institute of Chicago for 10 years. He was a contributing artist for Playboy producing sketches and paintings for a feature called "Man at His Leisure." In 1995 he gave the School of the Arts at Columbia University $6 million to create the LeRoy Neiman Center for Print Studies.
Kahlo was born in Coyoacan, a suburb of Mexico City. She was afflicted with polio that stunted the growth of her right leg and in 1925, a bus accident drove, a piece of iron into her pelvis and back. In 1929 she married the then 42 year old world-renowned Mexican muralist Diego Rivera. She suffered numerous miscarriages that caused her great grief. Her dramatic work consisted primarily of self-portraits, reflections of her personal history, her relationship with Diego Rivera; her damaged physical condition, her philosophy of nature and life, and her individual and mythological worldview.
Kisinis Web Art is a virtual gallery that presents artworks by multifaceted artists: painting, photography, sculpture, poetry, graphic arts, music, and multimedia, as well as a heading "Art Squat" dedicated to artists'squats.
Chris Ofili won the Tate's prestigious Turner Prize in 1998. He is famous for the Holy Virgin Mary, canvas with elephant dung, exhibited at the Brooklyn Museum in 1999.
Holy Virgin Mary
A gorgeous, sweet and respectful treatment of the subject, rendering her as a sternly hieratic African personage in petal-like blue robes. Much of the painting's surface shimmers ecstatically with glitter in yellow resin. Tiny collaged cutouts of bare bottoms from porn magazines evoke putti, and allude to the element of fertility in Mary's symbology, which Ofili did not invent.
As for the pachyderm product, it is one smallish, attached lump, capped with what appears to be black-and-white beadwork (in reality pushpin heads) in a design of concentric circles. Elephant poop turns out to be innocuous-looking stuff, not unpleasant in color and almost decorative in texture (lots of straw).
Janine Antoni was born in Freeport, Bahamas in 1964 and resides in New York. Antoni’s primary tool for making sculpture is her own body.
She has chiseled cubes of lard and chocolate with her teeth, and washed away the faces of soap busts made in her own likeness. She recieved several prestigious awards including a John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Fellowship in 1998 and the Larry Aldrich Foundation Award in 1999.
Siqueiros was born in Chihuahua, Mexico. He portrayed Mexico's history and economic conditions in visually bold political terms inspired by class struggle. He was expelled from Mexico and came to Los Angeles and returned to Mexico. His dramatic murals remain in public display in California and Mexico.
To bring up images from his subconscious mind, Dalí, a Surrealist, induced hallucinatory states in himself by a process he described as paranoiac critical. He depicted a dream world in which commonplace objects are juxtaposed, deformed, or otherwise metamorphosed in a bizarre and irrational fashion. Dalí portrayed these objects in meticulous, almost painfully realistic detail and usually placed them within bleak, sunlit landscapes.
Kandinsky was born in Moscow and paited in Munich. He contibuted to modern styles -- abstract, geometric and German expressionism, fantasy, and romantic superabundance, and movements -- Blue Rider and Bauhaus. He painted nonrepresentational watercolors. He published 'Concerning the Spiritual in Art', which examined the psychological effects of color and made comparisons between painting and music.
Ansel Adams was born in San Francisco. His first published photographs in the Sierra Club’s 1922 Bulletin, and he had his first one man exhibition in 1928 at the club’s headquarters. He was an unremitting activist for the cause of wilderness and the environment. His black-and-white images sought an intensification and purification of the psychological experience of natural beauty. He created a sense of the sublime magnificence of nature that infused the viewer with the emotional equivalent of wilderness, often more powerful than the actual thing.
