More Paul Normansell:

Elvis Costello
Gloss Painted Dots On Aluminium
21cm x 28.5cm

I just happened upon this artist today for the first time, and i gotta say I'm kinda liking it.
I too love to paint celebrities although I would argue for different reasons it seems. I wish to visualize an intense emotional component in a person's expression by doing so with the touch of a brush. I feel that our emotional trigger can be pulled tighter in a painting than in real life. What a better way to expose the rawest of all emotions then when a person is captured on camera or film, a feeling or a look which is only captured in the still of a moment. Even better is when that image is translated through the physicality of the human touch weather it be with paint or whatever other material.

Shadow art:

British artists Tim Noble and Sue Webster play with the viewer's perception.
Most notable pieces created...

"...from piles of rubbish, with light projected against them to create a
shadow image entirely different to that seen when looking directly at the
deliberately disguised pile."

What would Warhol do?

In our current society we an American people (as well as countless
other countries throughout the world) celebrate the culture of celebrity more so than ever.
So... I pose the question: If Andy Warhol were alive today
what kind of Art could he make that would manage to shock
the current celebrity gossip addict?

More Banksy:

Banksy Versus Bristol Museum:

Like Banksy I too am from England. I have however lived in America
for many years now so I am deeply disappointed to learn that his new show is in Bristol, England and i won't be able to see it. Luckily we have
the internet to provide images of these much missed occasions, and in turn
my visual senses are overjoyed. I think Banksy is one of the most honest
Artist's of my generation. Even though he remains anonymous (which is
a little bit of a cop out in my opinion) the name Banksy is now a name
which every young artist has heard of unless they have been living under a
rock. So if you do not know who Banksy is then you can check out more of his work here: http://www.banksy.co.uk/
