Hello Everyone, My name is Ingrid, and I live in Montreal... I just pretty much moved here from sunny Miami Beach, FL, but contrary to what some might think I enjoy the cold a lot better than I do the Heat! I am excited about the idea of exploring Montreal, and everything this city has to offer. I was a Music student in the US, but I have noticed that beyond a passion for Music, I have a passion for the arts. I have been performing since I could walk and talk, and well the rest is just history... talking led to singing, which led to dancing, which led to performing at random places.... and then inspiration hit me to convert thoughts into words. As I started reading more I felt I had more things to say myself, and so I would write short stories, poems, and a lot of lyrics. I was raised in Miami Beach, and we all know that it is the party center of the US.... I love the social scene, going out dancing, dealing with good looking people, and having a good time with friends at the beach, but I am also glad I finally got to move to a different city with a whole new culture to be explored. Wherever I go there is never a dull moment, I am bringing the Miami party spirit everywhere I go.

As I go through the portfolio of the once child prodigy from Russia Vania Zouravliov many words come to mind to describe each illustration, but no matter how many different possibilities I might encounter there is one word that applies to all of them: breathtaking.

Antony Gormley   Another Place   Crosby Beach 01 702607 266x400 The Art Of The Human Essence

Can art capture the essence of human life? What is the essence of a human? Is it the body or the mind? Could it be both? Is it possible to portray the body, and the mind of a human in one single work of art? Hmmm too many questions I know, but that’s what Antony Gormley attempts to do with his incredible sculptures.

It’s not a secret that images have the ability to awaken different parts of our brains, and allow us to experience different things. We are an extremely visual society, and if you have been blessed with the gift of sight (I would assume if you’re reading these words), then how many times have you looked at a picture and found yourself completely being immersed at some random thought? Jim Kazanjian’s works could certainly cause your brain to trip out. [ Continue Reading ]

The music industry is one of the hardest to break into, and perseverance is a major ingredient for success in the magical world of those who make it. Aside from great music, charisma, and lots of talent, you need a certain something to set you aside from the rest, and Toronto’s indie rock band The Cunnignhams certainly got that je ne sais quoi about them that will take them far.

We are constantly dealing with stress. Work, school, family, people you don’t know, the economy, you name it… they all have something wonderful in common (maybe not so wonderful after you think about it), but they can make us incredibly nervous at time. Mark Licari has found a humorous way of portraying our hectic nature, and they’re sculptures titled “Nervous Men”. [ Continue Reading ]

There are more than a million beautiful photographs on this planet, but only a few can take you to a different world for a moment. I find Chris Gordaneer’s pictures fascinating, having the ability to tell wonderful stories through them.

face pen 29 270x400 There Is Beauty In The Macabre You know the feeling when you’re driving down the interstate and you spot a horrific massive car accident, and you can’t take your eyes off of it? It’s the feeling of awe and repulsiveness, of sorrow and the curiosity for the grotesque. Artist Ashkan Honarvar is able to recreate that same feeling with his art, and just like that car accident you can’t stop staring. [ Continue Reading ]

It is true that as long as you have a vision, any material can be used to create art. And as long as you are imaginative enough to think outside the box, then your piece of art could end up on the Guinness World Records… well at least that was the case of Eric Daigh who uses push pins to create portraits.
