Artwork by Attila Kalman
I am a 32 yers old modest guy, who is searching for a deeper meaning in simple things.
Since I was a child I really loved drawing. I was making a lot of drawings of Mickey Mouse and The Lion King. I wanted to attain an art school but I was speaking myself out of it, because I thought that you could not make a living out of art making.
Since then I was working in 15 different industries and I was always feeling a huge gap inside of me. Then about 2 years I discovered painting and I felt that it was filling that gap in.
Now I’ve started studying at an Art University but I feel that the realistic painting that I want to learn will be a challenge.
I resonate with Audrey Flack’s words: “There is an instinct for realism, a powerful drive to reproduce oneself. The fascination of photorealistic paintings lies partly in their apparent replication of life, but these are not merely replications. These paintings are often out of life scale, varying from over life-size to under life-size, from brilliant, heightened colour to pale, undertone hues.”
Or Walter Gropius’: “Together let us desire, conceive, and create the new structure of the future, which will embrace architecture and sculpture and painting in one unity and which will one day rise toward Heaven from the hands of a million workers like the crystal symbol of a new faith.”
I’ve purchased Vladimir London’s anatomy master class and it’s absolutely amazing! It has all the informations you need to build a great foundation from the human anatomy perspective. So I am sure that Natalie Richy’s course is the same.
One of my biggest goal is to make art my prior source of income.
Thank you in advance for all the votes!
Best regards and success to everyone!
