ARTISTS WE LOVE: Horace Pippin

WHO: Horace Pippin WHAT: Painter WHERE: Pennsylvania, USA WHEN: 22 February 1888 – 6 July 1946 FAMOUS FOR: Horace Pippin is best known for his striking oil paintings, which depicted the American landscapes around him and scenes from his heritage. At a young age and throughout his World War I service in the famous Harlem Hellfighters 369th infantry, Horace drew the scenes around him. As a form of rehabilitation after being shot in the shoulder, Horace continued creating art and eventually moved to oil paintings. His paintings find a unique place of maturity and folk art, as the colors, textures, and dimensionality give voice to Pippin's perspective on slavery, segregation, the Great Depression, and American life. You can find a curated selection of his works and other African American artists in our new "Harlem Renaissance" gallery. “When I was a boy I loved to make pictures, [but war] brought out all the art in me.  I can never forget suffering and I will never forget sunsets. So I...

WOODSWIMMER (Video)

WOODSWIMMER by Brett Foxwell. This just might be the coolest thing you'll see all week, and it's only Monday. It's made entirely/100%/completely from wood! The sequences are cross-sectional photographic scans of pieces of hardwood, burls and branches. We love the way that the wood comes back to life - constantly changing, morphing, and growing. Check it out below. Also, isn't "WoodSwimmer" the prefect name??   [embed]https://vimeo.com/196683500[/embed]...

Five Favorites from Art Basel Miami 2019

The beginning of December was an absolute whirlwind for us as our team descended on Miami to check out what is arguably the best contemporary art fair in America, Art Basel Miami. This incredible art event takes place every first week in December and if you haven't heard about it before, this is definitely one art experience to put on your to-do list. Spread out over several days in and around South Beach, Art Basel hosts the artwork of nearly 4,000 artists from over 200 art galleries around the world. It's nothing short of overwhelming to try to squeeze in all of the exhibits and events that take place throughout the week, but even just being there is a fantastical feeling for any true art lover. Here were five of our favorite things from Art Basel 2019 and why we cannot wait to be there again next year. SCOPE Art Show SCOPE Art Show...

NEWS: Now Streaming, December 2019

December for us is one of the most magical months of the year for a lot of reasons. First is that we just got back from nine days in Miami for Art Basel, one of our favorite art shows in the world, where we met with incredible artists and enjoyed some pretty spectacular public installations. More on that soon. The second reason we love December is of course because the holidays are finally here and we wanted to make sure we shared with you some of our recommended galleries for enhancing the holiday spirit via your TV until the end of the month. Here are our gallery recommendations for December >> Holiday Kitsch Hanukkah Christmas Spirit Holidays New Years Eve Our newest holiday gallery to hit the app is Holiday Kitsch, a collection of vintage Christmas cards, satirical drawings and cartoons illustrating the season.

ARTISTS WE LOVE: Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec

WHO: Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec WHAT: Painter WHERE: France WHEN: 24 November 1864 – 9 September 1901 This legendary Post-Impressionist painter who would have been 155 today is hands down one of our favorites. His collection is a whirlwind of color and scenes from the wild side of late 19th century Paris and the famous Moulin Rouge. An aristocrat by blood, Toulouse-Lautrec's life was less than idyllic having been born with genetic disorder that ultimately led to the stunt of his growth (he was only 4 feet 8 inches) and the development of a terrible drinking problem by the time he reached his 30s. Nevertheless, he rose to recognition and ran with the likes of Van Gogh and Oscar Wilde. In his lifetime he created over 700 paintings and 5,000 drawings and you can stream some of his most well-known in our "Toulouse-Lautrec" gallery now. The painting featured at the top of this post is "At...

NEWS: Now Streaming, November 2019

We've made it through October and now with November, chillier weather and the holidays are on the horizon which means more time indoors. No better excuse to experiment with some new art for your TV and first up (and especially for this weekend), we recommend checking out our Dia de los Muertos gallery which was our Featured Gallery earlier this week. Here are a few other suggestions for galleries to stream this month >> Nadar's Empire of the Dead Across the Eras Claude Monet Jellies Thanksgiving Halloween may be over, but our gallery Nadar's Empire of the Dead is a spooky new addition to our History category comprised of some of the first photographs ever taken of Paris's notorious underground network of catacombs from the 1860s. By request, we've also added Across the Eras, a compilation of various art movements throughout history in one place from Classical to Abstract for those who...

Featured Gallery: Dia de los Muertos

We've made it no secret, we LOVE the Mexican holiday Dia de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead. So much so that we've even created a gallery for it! Every year from October 31st-November 2nd, Mexico honors the deceased with a three-day celebration full of festivals, ofrendas (altars), marigolds, and visits to the cemetery where they enjoy food, sing songs and recall memories of loved ones. Ofrendas are first set up in homes, businesses and in cemeteries with the dead's favorite food or drink and belongings as a way to encourage them to return during this time. You'll also see marigolds everywhere as they believe their scent and bright colors guide the souls back to earth and to their altars. Simply put, it's a beautiful celebration with a beautiful meaning behind it which is why we wanted to bring it to the Artcast app. We do hope you enjoy the all vibrant...
