ART: Inspiring Artwork by Dutch artist Miranda Groot-Pouw (07)

Today I would like to show you some pieces that caught my eye this week, like this beautiful painting from the Dutch artist Miranda Groot-Pouw (1965). Isn't it a Beauty? Love her refined and expressive artwork. The coming period I will show more of her interesting work. Earlier I published already some artwork, see MORE BLOGS
To Love, 2008
More about the artist
Miranda finished drawing and painting at the Dutch 'Nieuwe Kunst Academie Crejat' in Alkmaar (NL). She followed here during 5 years lessons and developed her own painting style. You can describe her style as abstract, expressionistic, figurative art. With acrylic paint she is painting in various transparant layers. Her subjects are various, from portraits to landscapes and buildings with an historical background and even an icon. Besides painting on linen, Miranda also made various wall- and windowpaintings. 
Portrait of the artist
For a theatre association she made various décors. She worked as a creative teacher for a school. It was a challenge for her to learn the children several techniques in a playful way for drawing, painting and workmanship. Besides these activities, the Dutch school 'De Zandloper' in the place Koedijk (NL) gave Miranda also the opportunity to do some art projects. For more information about this interesting artist, see the link below of her website 'Mirandart'. 

Thank you for reading this blogpost.

Art: Japanese beauty in Art Déco style by artist Ichiro Tsuruta (01)


While surfing this afternoon on internet I found these beautiful, elegant and colorful paintings from the Japanese visual artist Ichiro Tsuruta. I am really impressed about the beauty he is showing in his work. I wrote MORE BLOGS about his work. Be Inspired by his interesting artwork. 
More about the artist
Ichiro Tsuruta is a Japanese artist born in 1954 in the city of Hondo-shi (current Amakusa-shi), Kumamoto, Japan. He grew up surrounded by rich nature of the Kyushu's Amakusa region. He liked to paint since he was a young boy. He graduated from the department of Graphic Design at Tama Art College and worked on Western style and realistic style illustrations. He then became interested in the concept of beauty in Japanese tradition and Buddhist art. Ichiro's paintings are influenced by ‘Ukiyo-e’ the ancient Japanese paintings of young women such as ‘Utamaro’ and ‘Hokusai’. In fact the Japanese women he has created are the result of the perfect union of European Art Deco and Japanese sensibility. From the inner sense of Ichiro’s beauty are born his illustrations of women or muses, as he calls them. Here beauty, elegance and eroticism meet and interweave. Since 1987 Noevir, cosmetics company of Japan had adopted Tsuruta’s painting of imaginary beauties for their campaign for eleven years. Now he is working mainly as the painter of “Bijinga”, “Butsuga” (Buddhist art) and so on.
