I´ve been following Teesha Moore work for years and I find it amazing, her art is something I really love because it has things I really identify with myself. She is an expert in the “art journaling” world, using mix media. I would love to improve my techniques in this area. She knows how to express her feelings using colors, images and beautiful illustrations. If you want to read her blog click here and if you are interested in this kind of art she is always doing workshops and art fest. Enjoy!
Spanish: He seguido el trabajo de Teesha Moore desde hace años y lo encuentro íncreible no sólo por su creatividad y sus técnicas sino porque hay algo en su arte que me identifica. Ella es una experta en el mundo del conocido “art journaling” o en espeañol sería una especie de “arte de diarios personales”. Utiliza muchas técnicas donde mezcla la ilustración, la pintura, creando collages únicos. Esta movida de “art journaling” es muy fuerte en países como Estados Unidos y busca realizar diarios personales con hojas únicas, expresando la creatividad y plasmando el mundo interno de cada persona en una hoja de papel. A mi me parece fascinante y aunque no los hago todos los días me gusta cada tanto pintar, pegar y rayar un poco. Si quieren seguir más de cerca su trabajo, les dejo el link de su blog y si están interesados en este tipo de arte les dejo los links para sus workshops y art fests. Ella da clases on-line en inglés.

I am really in love with Bianca Green´s work! She is a very talented brazilian artist with an amazing taste for beautiful colors and crazy compositions. She use lots of different patterns that make her drawings more alive. And she has also lived in my country (happy coincidence) :). If you are looking for digital collage and bright colors she is the girl. Enjoy!

I found this amazings drawings in form of mind maps some time ago and I thought their were amazing. The man behind this project is Paul Foreman, a self taught ilustrator that had release lots of e-book with his drawings. I recommend to check his website where you can find mind maps of lots of different topics. I think was really inspirational material to finish the week! Have a great weekend!
Hope you like it,
I am really huge fan of street art, you can find beautiful messages and amazing drawings in the street. These kind of artists express themselves in the public eye, in front of everyone. The biggest contemporary street artist is Banksy. He had create a unique aesthetic very recognisable around the world. He mix perfect drawings with deep social messages that can be seen in the biggest cities around the world. Even if he had been controversional about his work, he says things that some people think but are too afraid to say it at loud. The value of his art is that today is here and tomorrow maybe it will not, it´s ephemeral.
Even if you like it or not, I recommend you his documental “Exit through the gift shop” an incredible history about the street art and a raising new “artist” “Mr. Brainwash“. I think comments about this documental are for another post, because it´s brillant! (Banksy creates a “piece of art”) Trust me!!
