MARTIAL RAYSSE UNDERGROUND POP ARTISTE SINCE 1936

Martial_Raysse_image

Artist biography

French painter. He was a self-taught artist. His early works were assemblages which included plastic objects. This appropriation of prefabricated materials led to his association with Nouveau réalisme. Raysse exhibited a world, new, antiseptic and modern. His approach anticipated that of the Pop artists, who likewise used objects and images deriving from advertising.During the 1960s Raysse began to make more pictorial compositions, based on images from advertising as well as on high art. He also produced paintings in which a deliberate roughness of execution is emphasised by the superimposition of a single neon line. Raysse began at this time to create his own prototypes as another way of continuing to elevate bad taste and falsity to the level of art.

In the mid 1960s Raysse’s work developed around a number of recurrent themes; in particular he concentrated on the contours of aportrait, a mouth or an eye, repeating them endlessly using all kinds of visual formulae, and drawing on the most diverse types of materials.

He gave up his pictorial explorations in the atmosphere of the events of 1968 in France. When he returned to painting, his work had undergone an important change. Little by little he moved away from the urban world towards a return to nature, a bucolic ideal of a gentle and calm community with reminiscences of Poussin and of mythology. He used pastel and tempera to depict timeless magical or fantastic scenes, anticipating the vogue for mythological subjects that appeared in the work of other painters in the 1980s.

Here is an outline of his beautiful work for my beautiful humans

THE BEAUTY OF A WOMAN

“The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides. True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It’s the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows & the beauty of a woman only grows with passing years.” Audrey Hepburn

THE GODDESS COMES IN MANY FORMS

From the beautiful movie “Ponyo” a Japanese animation directed by Hayao Miyazaki!

He has made many of my favourite movies. A common theme is true love, with innocence and the spirit world. I love his images, truly inspirational art in every way. It doesn’t matter how old you are, magic is all around and we all need a little magic in our every day lives!!!

o-HASSAN-HAJJAJ-900-1

A really great selection of Hassan Hajjaj a Moroccan photographer and stylist.

I love his imperfect images of real characters that you do meet when you travel around the globe. These characters are the real people that do start fashion trends. The detailed frame of the most popular canned food, candy or powdered dye. I’m assuming something culturally specific to the country is a really nice cheeky add to the images!!

Enjoy!!
