Art: Inspiring artwork by Canadian artist Lawrence Grodecki (01)

Longtime readers on my blog noticed already how I love to discover all kind of art and how I like to share this with my readers. While surfing on internet this week I found this inspiring artwork from the Canadian artist Lawrence Grodecki. What a beautiful coloruse as well as the fluent lines he is using in his work. The atmosphere feels so bright and calm. In cooperation with him I decided to show several paintings from his work on my weblog. Today I am showing his artwork 'Observing Tess'. Isn't it a Beauty? More paintings will follow soon. Be Inspired ......
More about the artist
Lawrence Grodecki celebrates the blending of the spiritual with the sensual, portraying mainly feminine forms in his creations. He describes his art as more emotional than figurative or literal. His style is contemporary, abstract and original. For him it is all about circles and curves, a curiosity about blending, especially in the realm of ideas.

As for technique, Lawrence's unique choice of combining his drawings, natural found objects and digital painting represents an evolved and mature art language. The bulk of the time goes into doing what is essentially digital painting ... the final outcome is a museum-quality print, usually on canvas. He makes his creations available on his website. While these are in open and limited editions, he also has unique, 1 of 1 creations available. For more information see the link of his website below.

Tran Phuong My, the fashion designer
More about the designer
Tran Phuong My was born in 1988 at Ho Chi Minh city, Vietnam. Having studied and graduated with honors from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, Phuong My has pursued perfection in all aspects of her fashion career.

From the design and production process through to client service, the smallest details are obsessively pursued. Rather than accepting the limitations of local fabrics available to other designers in Vietnam, Phuong My established a very clear strategy for her own brand. PHUONG MY’s fabric production is entirely outsourced to select partners in Paris, Milan, Hongkong and Tokyo, thus providing the optimum blend of both materials and exclusivity that has proven to be successful for the brand. Phuong My’s creative talents are expressed both through her work as the Chief Designer for the PHUONG MY brand and also production and styling projects for key fashion magazines such as ELLE, HARPER’s BAZAAR, and VOGUE. Determined to produce only the truly exceptional, the young designer is looking to expand her vision to the global fashion scene.
