Dazzle Ship.

A beautiful oil painting by Edward Wadsworth from 1919 as a part of the glorious Vorticism movement, entitled “Dazzle Ship In Drydock At Liverpool”.

I’m currently on the lookout to buy some original Vorticist paintings by people such as Wyndham Lewis and Edward Wadsworth, amongst others, so if anyone reading this has any leads to places which may have such paintings for sale or on auction, please shoot me an e-mail or leave a reply here with your contact info.

carl fudge.

Very, very cool.  Heavily influenced by Vorticism.

“The works presented by Carl Fudge follow the success of his exhibition The Black Country, presented by Galerie Richard in New York in 2011. Fudge is recognized as one of the first painters to incorporate digital processes into his technique. Fudge’s work refers to an area in the West Midlands of England. This region became intensely compromised during the industrial revolution, as coalmines, iron foundries and steel mills had left their black mark on the landscape. Fudge found inspiration in a series of woodcuts picturing this region by artist Edward Wadsworth, a member of the avant-garde Vorticism movement. Wadsworth’s woodcuts of slagheaps and furnaces provide a point of departure for Fudge in this new group of paintings and woodcut prints. Fudge’s ability to retain the influence of Wadsworth’s traditional woodcuts, even while deconstructing them through a digital process, is truly fascinating.  Because this series uses mostly a red palette, the viewer may decipher images of a crumbling city plagued by turmoil. In this way, this exhibition has a pulse that strikes a chord with the economic crisis we find ourselves in today.”

alfa romeo art

I stumbled upon this great site called just Alfa Romeo Art, with tons and tons of Alfa Romeo artwork for sale in the form of prints in all sizes.  The prices aren’t uber expensive, but not cheap regular posters either.  I’m assuming these are high quality prints, and have been done by an assortment of different artists from all around the world.  If you’re an Alfa Romeo fanatic, i’m sure you’ll be tempted by something on that site.  So much great art there.  I’m tempted to bust out with a Montreal print myself.

some more art i REALLY loved from this site…

art of the day.

Rohit Sharma makes some cool artwork.  Based out of New Delhi, his paintings capture the essence of city living in India.  I really dig his vintage car paintings. (makes for good wallpaper too!)  Check out the other variations on his website:
