INSPIRING ARTISTS AROUND THE WORLD

CopyrightÂŠ2013 InPrint Magazine Inspiring Artists Around The World
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.

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. “I HOPE YOU ALL HAVE A GREAT CHRISTMAS”
(founder & editor-in-chief of InPrint Magazine)
readers insights I call InPrint a ground-breaking magazine. The idea is just great! It focus on innovation and creativity rather just on the latest crazy trends (there are other mags for that). This is a worthwhile subscription to have if you are interested in what’s happening now and what’s next in today’s artistic world. I you! . Eric Smith Tunguz | “Senior Designer at Dynamic Fusion”
I really have been enjoying this magazine. It explores new artists and that is why they are being successful. I also really like the emphasis on arts and not on advertisement. I also like the variety of artists they feature and how different and unique they are. They all inspire me and that is a good thing. Richard L. Gold | Melbourne
I love the last issue cover, and I love to see how this magazine has improved sooo much! Well, you! D. Shaw | CEO at Global Rising I first looked at InPrint Magazine at a friend’s, after he ordered a printed copy. And I was sold. The magazine focuses on new talents giving them this amazing amount of exposure where not even big name magazines will do. Keep doing what you are doing guys! I’m a new Fan! Brian Gallen | Ireland

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.

INTERVIEW Tell us a little bit of who you are as an artist As a kid I was very much interested in the Impressionists painters and their idea about light. Later I was obsessed with the work of Gustav Klimt and Egon Schiele and their combination of beauty with a twist. As a student, “American Illustration” became my Bible…the approach in illustration that time was so much more artistic as what I was used to see in Germany.I was always inspired and touched by the imperfection of beauty and the power of sim-
plicity. That’s why I love so much aesthetic. With the years your art is African and South American folk art growing with yourself! and Indian miniatures.

THOMAS BURNS (CONTINUED)
there is always a bit of the dark side in my paintings… the paintings can look beautiful, but I am glad if the beholder is taking a second look. How has your work evolved over the years from when you where beginning? My work got much more refined and elegant..I guess my earlier work was more rough with harder outlines and less sophisticated. How do conceptualize
your images? Do you draw from photographs, individuals or locations? Its a combination of my personal imagination and some inspiration from pictures or photos. I love to collect books with old botanical illustrations and old graphic books. But the world and my travel are a bog “source book” as well. What do you think of the artist community in your area? I live and work in Berlin Mitte and
I am surrounded by creative people and their soul. I love the diversity and this is very inspiring for my art as well. I also go to a lot of gallery openings and exhibitions...its all around the corner. What is your family background? Were there any artists or creative types in the family? I am the only artist in the family and I always asked myself where this spirit is coming from.. maybe from another life..
What advice would you give to emerging artists who want to show and be part of the scene? First of all its all about the passion of art and creating....if you work hard on your self and your style; this energy could be helpful to get recognized. There are no real advices but a passionate work and discipline is very helpful
creative as well and you could bring a lot of joy to other people.
What is your favorite medium to work in? Have you always worked in this media? If not, why did you switch? I work with Acrylic and gouache on wood, but now draw a lot as well and combine these 2 techniques. I started to work with colored pencil and acrylic on old found cardboard and loved If you could be anything other the patina of the found material. than an artist, what would you be?

his to 38
Cândido Portinari (December 29, 1903 - February 6, 1962) was one of the most important Brazilian painters and also a prominent and influential practitioner of the neo-realism style in painting.
Born to Giovan Battista Portinari and Domenica Torquato, Italian immigrants from Veneto, in a coffee plantation near Brodowski, in São Paulo, Portinari studied at the Escola Nacional de Belas Artes (ENBA) in Rio de Janeiro. In 1928 he won a gold medal at the ENBA and a trip to Paris where he stayed until 1930, when he returned to Brazil.
He joined the Brazilian Communist Party and stood for senator in 1947 but had to flee Brazil for Uruguay due to the persecution of Communists during the government of Eurico Gaspar Dutra (1946 to 1951)cn. He returned to Brazil in 1951 but suffered ill health during the last decade of his life and died in Rio de Janeiro in 1962 of lead poisoning from his paints. Study for Discovery of the Land mural at the United States Library of Congress. His career coincided with and included collaboration with Oscar Niemeyer amongst others. Portinari’s works can be found in galleries and settings in Brazil and abroad, ranging from the family chapel in his childhood home in Brodowski to his panels Guerra e Paz (War and Peace) in the United Nations building in New York and four murals in the Hispanic Reading Room of the Library of Congress in Washington,
DC. The range and sweep of his output is quite remarkable. It includes images of childhood, paintings depicting rural and urban labor, refugees fleeing the hardships of Brazil’s rural north-east, treatments of the key events in the history of Brazil since the arrival of the Portuguese in 1500, portraits of members of his family and leading Brazilian intellectuals, illustrations for books, tiles decorating the Church of São Francisco at Pampulha, Belo Horizonte. There were a number of commemorative events in the centenary of his birth in 2003, including an exhibition of his work in London.

On December 20, 2007, his painting O Lavrador de Café was stolen from the São Paulo Museum of Art along with Pablo Picasso’s Portrait of Suzanne Bloch. The paintings remained missing until January 8, 2008, when they were recovered in Ferraz de Vasconcelos by the Police of São Paulo. The paintings were returned, undamaged, to the São Paulo Museum of Art.
ichael Anthony Taylor started out in digital photography in 2005 with a simple point and shoot just barely knowing the basics. Initially, He was only taking photos of landscapes to later be inspired by a fine art photographer to start doing portraits of people. At the time, He didn’t really have a “style” per
se , so He began just photographing whatever He felt like doing, occasionally with the help of other local talents for
hair and make up. As years passed, Michael began to concentrate more on fashion and beauty, which then lead to doing ads for small local hair salons and model agencies in Okinawa, Japan. —“What makes me unique, is that most of the concepts are not extracted from other images but from a collection my ideas and sometimes little things introduced from collaborations with other talents I often work with. I try to be a trend setter to set myself apart from what most see online and in other magazines by not being afraid to post something different”. At the moment He lives on the small island of Okinawa, Japan, which is not known at all for anything fashion or beauty related. InPrint | Winter 2013

The Miracle of Green Tea
Is any other food or drink reported to have as many health benefits as green tea? The Chinese have known about the medicinal benefits of green tea since ancient times, using it to treat everything from headaches to depression. In her book Green Tea: The Natural Secret for a Healthier Life, Nadine Taylor states that green tea has been used as a medicine in China for at least 4,000 years.
What makes green tea so special?
The secret of green tea lies in the fact it is rich in catechin polyphenols, particularly epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG). EGCG is a powerful anti-oxidant: besides inhibiting the growth of cancer cells, it kills cancer cells without harming healthy tissue. It has also been effective in lowering LDL cholesterol levels, and inhibiting the abnormal formation of blood clots. The latter takes on added importance when you consider that thrombosis (the formation of abnormal blood clots) is the leading cause of heart attacks and stroke.

In 2009 they came together to form Studio Po, an illustration, graphic and web design studio, which was gradually focusing more on urban art and illustration creating the duo Olliemoonsta. Their artistic career began in Madrid with the Youth Award given annually to Comunidad de Madrid with a series of exhibitions in different cities of Spain, such as Madrid, Alcalá de Henares, León and Pontevedra.

Olliemoonsta’s work has been seen in numerous exhibitions worldwide. In July 2011 they were invited to the International Percussion Festival of Montreal, Canada, where Juan Rico were performing improvised paintings to the rhythm of music.
