Art creates culture. Culture shapes values. Values determine the future. The fascination of art has to do with time. Visual art is the quickest of all serious cultural forms to make its full nature clear to the beholder. It's worth dwelling on the rapidity of art. It is conventional, in the moralizing rhetoric of the critic, to say Rembrandt repays a lot more time than most works of art - you can look at his pictures for a lifetime and still find new depth in them. But what if this is not the most important thing about great art? What if it's the instant effect that matters? So it's not always true that great art takes a long time to appreciate and instantaneous art is shallow. In fact, some of the most revered paintings can be appreciated much more quickly than video art - which has, as I've already conceded, brought narrative time into the gallery. Why is time-based art so popular? Does it seem more important because it takes up time? Personally, I agree with Leonardo da Vinci. The most magical thing in art is the instant and complete image.

MESSAGE FROM

THE EDITOR Imagination Is More Inportant Than Knowledge

The transformation of a team happens in the hands of great imaginative leaders, not in indulgent knowledge seekers. While some form of education is generally a prerequisite for progress, we need to understand the balance between knowledge and imagination. Today’s leader should understand both past and present experiences of his/her team, and use that knowledge to cultivate creative progress and imaginative learning. As Einstein suggests, it is our imagination that will propel us to great strides in moving our teams and businesses forward. So how do you imagine yourselves as a different team? By setting BHAGs (Big Hairy Audacious Goals) to stimulate progress and guide your team through the process of creating a Vision and Mission statement. This creative procedure can help encourage your team to think of themselves and opportunities in new ways. When we can focus people on what they can become, we see small changes in the otherwise mundane. Having a Mission and Vision statement clarifies a team’s purpose and allows them to confidently contribute to the creative process. Basically, it puts all workers on the same page and allows them to work in synergy. A mission is simply asking yourself, “what do I need to do everyday to be successful?” While a vision statement is more aligned with, “if we do what we need to everyday, we will have succeeded.” It is important to reference your business’s mission in moments of confusion – the ideal mission statement will refresh you of your business’s goals and put you back on the right track. Give your teams the creative power to solve business challenges by providing clear and concise Mission and Vision statements and letting their imagination handle the rest. “LOVE ART AND LOVE INPRINT MAGAZINE AS MUCH AS WE DO”

reader insights I come from an entire family of designers, illustrators and art directors, all whom love Arts Magazines - but they are becoming far too boring for me. Inprint Magazine is more exciting, and for only $1.99, it is at a very reasonable price!. Matthew W Baugher Jr | “Agent Productivity Coach”

I love this magazine! Excellent articles on the world of arts Great insights into new and emerging creatives. And it helps to inspire my creativity Plastic Hippie | India

A great magazine packed with great artists as always. If you are inspiring on becoming an artist or a designer I totally recommend it. Andrea Peplinski | Russia Good magazine, and easy to read on my iPad. Viking Nomad | Art Center Student

Our Contributors:

Reading this magazine is like riding a roller coaster -- fast and furious. You’re anxious waiting for a new issue, engaged throughout, and breathless when it’s over. It’s packed with ideas and inspiration, especially for illustrators and anyone trying to become an artist. Not for the faint-of-heart. Steven K | UK

Awesome eye-candy, very

inspiring, but the articles typically are only good for when you need a nap.

DESIGN PHOTOGRAPHY FOOD FASHION ILLUSTRATION LITERATURE PEOPLE

For the greatest inspiration of Art and Artists, the priority is to "lose oneself." Ultimately, an artist is motivated to realize that Higher Self, the completely inspired Self every artist know in their moments of pure expression.. the making of love that motivates pure inspiration. This is when what IS is! These are our spires of inspiration. True words of motivation are like best religious inspirational sayings. This almost incomprehensible motivation embodies the I AM of Moses, the burning bosom, the undressing of flesh to reveal a naked soul, as if touching and tasting dewdrops of spilt blood. Emotional scars upon souls often scream within chalices of pain; nonetheless, tongues can reach hitherto heights, waxing wicks of flight seeking to soar as the light embodies the words of motivation herself.

I love to experiment in digital where I can create my own custom film KIRAN OWAL - PHOTOGRAPHER | UK

more about the artist kiranowal.com twitter @kiranowal facebook KiranOwal.Photography

Who is Kiran Owal? Kiran Owal is an internationally acclaimed fashion and advertising photographer with over 14 years of experience in Europe and Asia. His strength lies in his ability to capture everyday life situations and portray them in a glamorous style by mining timeless human emotions through imagery Describe the ambition behind your work as a photographer? I operate in the world of fashion. Fashion is the great global dance of how we present ourselves to the world at a surface level. But in my practice as a visual artist, I portray both what is on the surface and the intimacy of what lies beneath

Kiran Owal is a London-based lifestyle and advertising photographer. He has shot campaigns for major brands, agencies and publications in London and Mumbai and has received awards from ABBY (Advertising club of Bombay) and AAAI Goa fest. His work has been acclaimed in numerous industry publications, including the March 2007 issue of Better Photography magazine. Kiran mastered film photography before moving on to digital and works comfortably in both formats. He enjoys exploring the limits of film and pushing beyond those limits in digital. He has a natural talent for outdoor and on location photography and is known for his atmospheric style. When was it that you actually first picked up a camera and discovered this passion? I first picked-up a camera when I was studying in art school. I have a creative mind and I am good with science and technology. Having that self-awareness at an early age made my choice really clear when given the options of graphic design, illustration, typography or photography at art school. Did you start with film or was it straight to digital SLR’s? What is it about photography that fascinated you? I consider myself to be fortunate to have started photography at the tail-end of the film era and witness the dawn of digital capture. I had

to learn everything about film and exposure. It was essential to learn which film to use for a particular color treatment at a particular situation. I learned to create different effects at the capture as Photoshop hadn’t taken off yet. I still try to get my picture right in ‘one-shot’ even when I’m shooting on digital. The industry standards at the moment belong to Canon and Nikon. Which do you find yourself shooting with? Do you feel either brand helps in any way with the style of photography you do specifically? I don’t believe one is better than the other. They all have evolved at a rapid pace and are quite good. I use Canon because it was faster to develop digital technology and once you have a kit, it’s not very easy

ILLUSTRATOR

Yohan Sacré

Y

ohan Sacré is a young, Belgium-based graphic novelist and illustrator whose giant imagination is matched with a refined skill. Sacré has a seussian flair for translating the natural world into his own dreamlike vision. The carefully rendered detail of his work makes Sacré’s magical world all the more real for us. We would give our right antler to see his work animated, but maybe the stillness and simplicity of his pencil and crayon drawings are better left as they are, when the life of his characters begin inside our own imaginations.

InPrint History

Hieronymus Bosch

V

ery little is known about the artist Hieronymus Bosch. His date of birth, thoughts, writings, personality, and the meaning of his art have all been lost to time. What is left, though, is a series of paintings that defy the imagination as well as any set art form before him. What is known is that he received many commissions to paint from abroad, and it is thought that he was taught to paint by his father or an uncle. Four out of his five sons also became painters like their father. In 1488 he joined the Brotherhood of Our Lady, which was a highly respected conservative religious group, which is in part some explanation of his subject matter. Bosch produced several triptychs, or three-part paintings, all known for their fantastical imagery, illustrating moral and religious stories or concepts. He did not paint in the typical Flemish style, and instead drew with his brush, and as such he is considered a revolutionary artist of his time, producing work in his own autonomous style. Perhaps because he is such a mysterious figure himself, there are many different interpretations of his works. While some contemporaries thought his works to be heretical, others thought that his work was simply to amuse and engage the viewer. It is now generally accepted that his art was to teach moral and spiritual truths, and that the many fantastical and nightmarish creatures had a well-thought-out and meaningful significance. Yet other interpretations of his work pose that he was a proto-surrealist, and others try to determine a Freudian psychology from his images. Bosch signed only seven of his works, and dated InPrint | October 2013

even less. As such, there are only 25 remaining paintings that are sure to be his. His style was highly influential, and he was imitated by numerous followers, which produced many forgeries of his works.

Art

Bosch produced several triptychs. Among his most famous is The Garden of Earthly Delights. This painting, for which the original title has not survived, depicts paradise with Adam and Eve and many wondrous animals on the left panel, the earthly delights with numerous nude figures and tremendous fruit and birds on the middle panel, and hell with depictions of fantastic punishments of the various types of sinners on the right panel. When the exterior panels are closed the viewer can see, painted in grisaille, God creating the Earth Bosch never dated his paintings. But—unusual for the time—he seems to have signed several of them, although some signatures purporting to be his are certainly not. Fewer than 25 paintings remain today that can be attributed to him. In the late sixteenth-century, Philip II of Spain acquired many of Bosch’s paintings, including some probably commissioned and collected by Spaniards active in Bosch’s hometown; as a result, the Prado Museum in Madrid now owns The Adoration of the Magi, The Garden of Earthly Delights, the tabletop painting of The Seven Deadly Sins and the Four Last Things, the The Haywain Triptych and The Stone Operation.

I try to capture moments we each relate to. Utilizing a range of mediums and style combinations are what I like to do the most. JACK STRICKER - ILLUSTRATOR | USA

more about the artist jackstricker.com instagran jackstrickerart facebook.com/jack.stricker1

Tell us a little bit of who you are as an artist Well I am a native of southern California and have always been into anything expressive. Painting, skateboarding, and music are the things that made me want to become an artist. Those activities and the culture around them were what I wanted to do everyday. As I grew a little older the painting/illustration completely took over but I am still influenced by this culture I grew up in and I think it shows through my work. When did you know you where an artist? What do you think an artist is now that you one? I used to draw my teachers in elementary school with busted ass

Jack Stricker is an American artist, born in 1987. As a native of San Diego, Stricker much like many of his contemporaries was influenced early on by Southern California culture. His passion for painting and illustration overtook his intellectual energy leading to further art studies, including printmaking. With a vast array of figurative works using themes such as contradiction, the movement of nature, and spontaneous humor, Stricker is being recognized for capturing moments we each relate to. Utilizing a range of mediums and style combinations, he paints multi-layered environments. These works detach from reality at times, managing to keep a familiar existence. faces on the bathroom wall and I think at that moment I knew I was an artist. I didn’t become serious until about 17 but it has definitely always been with me. Now that I actually am an artist as a way of supporting myself it is not as glamorous as I thought it’d be when I was a kid. Don’t get me wrong I love being able to paint and draw everyday but realities of being an adult are kicking in every so often. Hah.

How has your work evolved over the years from when you where beginning? Like most kids I started out drawing which then lead to markers, paint, spray paint and so on. Lately I have been more refined in my technique. I will start a painting or drawing very free flowing and abstract then tighten up some areas so I can see a strong contrast.

Patience is the most important thing ADRIAN TORRES - PAINTER | SPAIN

more about the artist Twitter @ADRIANTORRESART facebook.com/ADRIANTORRESART instagram.com/adriantorresart

Adrian Torres first contact with painting took place at the beginning of his studies with fine art. Torres has lived in major cities such as Seville, Barcelona and Fort Worth in the United States.After returning to Cadiz where he has his home and studio he is respectably aware of new and unknown territories which continue to offer challenges to his artistic mind.Torres has a passion for painting, which he says is a way of life. His strength and positive energy along with the use of contrasts, styles and life experiences form a whole part of his work; powerful colors and vivid use of imagery are almost plasmatic in feeling. Torres latest works are currently on exhibit in the United States, France and Germany. He has also exhibited and participated in many charity events throughout the world

Recipe by Astrid Kricos

Name Of The Dish

Chicken and Sea Food Paella

Origin Of The Dish Valencia, Spain

Ingredients:

2 cups of Calasparra or Bomba rice or any long grain rice will do 1/2 cup of home made the sofrito (sofrito is a Spanish cooking paste made out of reduced bell pepper, tomatoes, onion, garlic, and dried Spanish Nora chilies. The trick to making a good sofrito that packs punches of flavor is to cook it slowly, taking time for the ingredients to break down and the flavors to meld together. This should take at least 20 to 30 minutes.) The Nora chilie is stemmed and seeded and soaked in a bowl of hot water until softened, about 15 minutes. 2 cloves garlic, diced 2 -3 lbs of drumettes 2 tablespoons of extra-virgin olive oil 1/2 pound medium shell-on shrimp, deveined 12 mussels, scrubbed one lobster tail for the broth (you will need 3 cups)

History Of The Dish

Paella is a dish that is easy to love. Seafood, meat, vegetables all cooked together in rice, which soaks up and melds all the flavors of the different ingredients. Paella is best eaten when shared with a group of people. It is not unlike hunting for treasures, I’m always looking for that one last piece of meat or clam that had evaded others. Paella originated from the Valencia region of Spain, and while there are many variation of Paella which may differ from region to region, the three most widely known types are Paella with Meat, Paella with seafood, and Mixed Paella, which has both meat and seafood.
