Baroque Art

     According to what I have researched the Baroque is a period of artistic style that used exaggerated motion and clear, easily interpreted detail to produce drama, tension, exuberance, and grandeur in sculpture, painting, architecture, literature, dance and music.I think this period also shows an emotion, I know all painting has emotions but this period really focused on showing emotions.
     Another one I think the expression of the art is also to see emotions if you will look at the paintings of the Baroque period you can see emotions through their faces, and it is also a realistic paintings. As a young member of artist I can start my inspiration in different eras. Like the Baroque style this is a good example to start being an artist. So I wanted to make an art like this one but on my own style.

Renaissance Art


     The word Renaissance means "rebirth." According to my research Renaissance Art is the painting, sculpture and decorative arts of that period of European history known as the renaissance emerging as a distinct style in Italy in about 1400, in parallel with developments which occurred in philosophy, literature, music and science. I think the most striking characteristics of Renaissance Art is that most of their art is compose of Religious Actions or pictures.

    It is important for us to remember this art because this is the time were we can look back for the past and this art can give us many inspirations. and I think this art is a bit emotional because when you see their paintings you can see different actions, and as a painter it is also important on what will the painting has to say to the viewers and the artist of this period are really great because you can see emotions in the paintings. I think the influences of Renaissance that I can attribute to the way I create my designs and artworks now is to create a painting that the viewers can see the emotions and a painting which gives the viewers an impact.

Christian Art

     Christian art well I think this art is important to me especially because I am a Catholic person, but then I'm a little bit ashamed because I am a catholic person but I don't have enough background about the christian art. But I'm glad that my classmates already gave me some ideas on what is christian art all about. Well christian art is sacred because it portrays the Christianity, this art shows the life of Jesus. Christian art survives from dates near the origins of Christianity. The oldest surviving Christian paintings are from the Megiddo, dated to around the year 70, and the oldest Christian sculptures are from sarcophagi or sarcophagus. In this art they also tackled about the Cathedrals, Churches and Basilicas when see them you will really be amazed because of their architectures, the arts in ceiling, walls, windows door, altars etc. they are really relaxing when you want them because you can feel the presence of God.
      This era also tackled about the four evangelist: Saint Luke, Saint Mark, Saint Matthew, and Saint john. St. Luke symbolizes Bull, St. Mark symbolizes Lion, St. Matthew symbolizes Man while St. John symbolizes Eagle. They also stated here the mother of Constantine, "Helena." Gothic art is also part of Christian art, Chartres is the best preserve Gothic architecture. Chartres  has 3 elements: the Portals, three horizontal division and triangular. Well, I think this era has an influence on my future artworks and design because it gives me idea on how to create a beautiful artwork and I think I can use this era as one of my inspirations.

Ancient and Classical arts

   Ancient art and Classical art 
   Ancient art. This art is all about China, India, Mesopotamia, Persia, Egypt, Greece and Rome. This art is still remembered today. In this era we have the Paleolithic, Mesolithic and Neolithic. Time goes by the arts on that time are evolving. And I think this era is very treasured because in this age the creativity of a person is already stated here they don't have intention in doing art but as a result on what they are doing it resulted as an art.  Classical art in this time the people already discovered on how to use shapes in arts. Mostly arts of this era are real, they make art on what are they doing in their daily life.

     Well I believe that both of this art has any influence even a bit in my life. But then to be honest I'm not interested in the history of art but when my classmates started to introduce where the art came from, I felt like I want to be back in that era. and besides I want to create an art that is all about that era. Both of this periods use human as their subject matter. Ancient arts use cave paintings while the other one is more on sculptures. Yes, of course it's easy to create art of this two era but, it's hard to create an sculpture and a cave painting it's easy to use your imagination to create your art of this two periods but if you study on how to create them you can do this without any difficulties.

Realistic, Distortorts or Alteration?

      Realistic art the accurate and apparently objective description of the ordinary, observable world, a change especially evident in painting. Sets as a goal not imitating past artistic achievements but the truthful and accurate depiction of the models that nature and contemporary life offer to the artist. Realism in relation to art is when the subject of the artist is shown in a realistic manner, as close to 'reality' as possible - the way the subject actually looked. Realist artists chose subjects from everyday life around them. Often we see in their paintings images of some the poorer members of society. Before this, such subjects had been deliberately overlooked by many artists. That is the meaning of realistic art according what I have researched.

     I chose Realistic art because I find it interesting. Even thou it is black and white I find it attractive. And for all the arts that I have seen realistic art is my most favorite and I really want to create an art which is realistic art. I'm envy of my classmates who are very good in this type of art that's why I pushed myself to do my best to create an art like that. Distorted Art are also beautiful. I am the type of person who loves colorful I hate plain. Like the distorted art it is colorful, and besides it has many shapes. If you focused on the painting or art you can see the meaning of the painting.

     All arts are beautiful. Realistic art is very hard that's why it gives me a challenge. And as an multimedia artists I promise to myself that I'll be successful in creating realistic art. But not just realistic art but all of the art. I will practice all of them one by one. I'll start from the basic first for me to make it, because if I started in the hard way I might not become a successful one in creating different kinds of arts. that's why we are studying first the basic because in art we need to know first the details why we are using that we need to answer first the questions in our mind before starting.

Art in action..

     Last Thursday November 29, 2012, PRISAA was held in Lyceum of the Philippines - Laguna. I thought that it was just a simple game of different school that is going to held in school but then I have just realized it when our professor told us to go to the gym of the school and there I saw on stage the tarpaulin of PRISAA. When I noticed it for me it was exciting because I love watching games even thou sports doesn't suit me. Our professor told us to go to the gym, at first I thought that we are just going to watch the game, then later on she asks us to draw on our sketch pad on what is happening in the PRISAA. I chose to draw one of the member of the soccer team even thou it was not held in the gym.

     When I was thinking on what am I gonna draw in my sketch pad something flashed on my mind saying that how can I draw art in action? I'm not that practiced in sketching a human so what I did is I used the technique that Mr. Charlie (our professor in basic and Technical Drawing) told us to do in sketching, this is the easiest way to draw a human what am I saying is the shapes, sphere, cone and many more when you used that in parts of the body of the person and it's position you can easily add the other details like hair, hands, clothes etc. So when I used it I looked for one soccer player and watched his moves while watching I'm using the technique of what our professor told us then I put the details on it and add the backgrounds.

     In creating art in action for me it was really difficult because you need to focus in the movements of the person but not just the person you can use different models in doing art in action. What I can see in my drawing is it looks like an anime. While doing this art I felt more excited on the next activity that we are going to draw and I'll do my best to create a more beautiful art. As time goes by Art will always be in my mind. Because art is in my heart already. I love what am I doing and I'll finished this with my whole heart in it. During my elementary days our teacher already told me that I have creativity and that time I got more and more interested in arts. Because ART is EXPRESSING yourself.

Most Influential Era of Arts and Design...

Master of the Sophien Cathedral of Ohrid

      I chose the Byzantine and Medieval Art as the most influential era of art and design. First is the Medieval art of the Western world , over 1000 years of art in Europe, and at times the Middle East and North Africa. The Medieval art was produced in many media, and the works that remain in large numbers include sculpture, illuminated manuscripts, stained glass, metalwork and mosaics. Then the Byzantine art is the artistic products of the Eastern Roman, or Byzantine, Empire, as well as the nations and states that inherited culturally from the empire.
Meister der Schule von Nowgorod, Georgische Madonna
      I  chose this as the most influential era of arts and design simply because this paintings or art is born for to remind about Jesus, Saints and Apostles, which where ever church we go we can see this type of art. And we all know that in every corner of the world we can feel Jesus Christ, even thou we have different God in each corner of the world still we can remember him, see him because of all the God's that we are praising we have only ONE GOD. And this art which is Byzantine and Medieval art reminds us of him.

     That's why this is the most influential era of arts and design. Besides this painting are really beautiful. I also wanted to learn on how to create this kind of art. Whenever I see this in the church I feel relaxed and I enjoy watching this. And as you can see all churches have this in their roofs, door, chairs and walls. Just like what I have said Byzantine and Medieval art is born to remind about Jesus Christ.
