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.

Picasso was once credited to saying that “Everything you can imagine is real”. Well, I myself believe in the concept of creating reality with your thoughts, however, I sure hope some of the creatures from Thomas Mangold’s CGI photographs are not harvested in some lab anytime soon.

Traunsee 585x394 Its a Beautiful Planet

I don’t want to sound gloomy, but it is a pity that our beautiful planet is suffering because of our greedy ways. Helmut Ditsch is not an environmentalist; he is simply a painter, but he is able to capture part of the glory nature has to offer in his works of arts. [ Continue Reading ]

stilkey2 1 300x400 Go Ahead... Judge The Books By Their Covers

The only time when it is completely acceptable to judge a book by its cover is when the book has been used as a canvas for an artist. Mike Stilkey has always been attracted to painting on old record covers, vintage paper, and yep you guessed it right… books. [ Continue Reading ]

Alexis Marcou artwork 559x400 Alexis Marcou  Less is More

For designer and illustrator Alexis Marcou, less is definitely translated into more. Marcou’s works are filled with life, however, it is all accomplished by recreating an 80’s minimalist retro look with a contemporary twist. [ Continue Reading ]

smirk 534x400 Beyond Photorealism  When Paintings Come To Life

Make no mistake, for this image staring right at you is no photograph. This image was painted by hand, by the very talented NY based painter Alyssa Monks. Depending on the size resolution in which the image is being displayed on your computer, it is very easy to think her wonderful intricate paintings are simple photographs taken during a very intimate moment; but they reveal to be even more disturbingly real (some of her paintings can be over 6ft high!)

01 Lepard Matutinal 324x400 Nick Lepard  Face to Face

To this young artist a portrait is not a representation of somebody since it only portraits a mere moment of a person that exists through time, however, Nick Lepard definitely has the ability to intrigue a viewer with his raw portraits. He gained notoriety in Vancouver with his large-scale self-portraits and portraits of friends. Born in 1983, this Vancouver artist accomplished his first solo exhibition fresh out of school in 2008 at the Diane Farris Gallery, a gallery that has been representing Lepard since the summer of 2006 when he had his first group exhibition.

IPA 533x400 Ivo Mayr  Just Hanging around

Never mind the old fashioned psychological drawing tests developed to test people’s common sense when looking at the German photographer Ivo Mayr’s photographs, because he would most definitely fail. The settings are nothing more than ordinary, however his playful images places people in the most unusual of places. He gave a whole new meaning to the expression “I’m just hanging around”.
