Bad art Museum

Bad art Museum

Bad art Museum. Mana Lisa by Anonymous. A cross-gender interpretation of the da Vinci classic

Bad art Museum permanent collection includes about 500 works of art, which are too bad to be ignored. American private Museum of bad art (MOBA) was founded 20 years ago, in the fall of 1993, by the antique dealer Scott Wilson. Once he showed a painting found in the piles of rubbish, and some of his friends offered to build a collection. The museum statement is “to celebrate the works of the artists whose work has not been evaluated in any other museum”. MOBA presented its first show in March 1994, and the response was overwhelming. Since then, MOBA’s collection and ambitions have grown exponentially. Initially, MOBA was housed in the basement of a private home in Boston. Now it has three offices, one in Dedham (suburb to the north-west of Boston), Massachusetts, the other in a nearby Somerville, a suburb north of Boston, and the third branch in Brookline, Massachusetts.

Beautiful still life painting by Spanish artist Jose Escofet

Spanish artist Jose Escofet was born in 1930 in Terrassa (Province of Barcelona), Spain. The artist had worked as a free lance graphic artist in Barcelona for 25 years, before moving to England in 1979. Currently, the artist lives with his English wife and 3 children in England. During his long artistic career he had experimented with different media including Pumice, Latex and Marble dust, through expressionism and abstraction, and later returned to figurative painting. The main inspiration for the artist is nature with its flowers, landscapes, and every living creature. Jose Escofet has always admired the Dutch and Spanish Schools of Still Life painting. Flowers are at the core of his paintings, and he likes to play with proportions and create strange morphing of plants and creatures. Jose Escofet admits that he is trying to express his belief that in nature we are all interconnected and of equal importance – be it a plant, an insect or a human being.

Gothic naive paintings by Pavel Nikolaev

Gothic naive paintings by Pavel Nikolaev could be called “Mirrors of the past”. Besides, his paintings – not bright canvas on which painted something in a certain technique. In fact, the main material for the master is wood – warm and pliable material, that also can be a frame. As Pavel Nikolaev himself admits, while he working on a new creation, he is talking with his work. The topic for conversation – the aesthetics of bygone centuries, stories and medieval style. The theme is not just painted, but as if reflected in a rectangular “openings” of wood “canvas”, creating the effect of the picture, seen in the mirror. Created by the artist View from the Past is indifferent to the present. Those captured in the wooden paintings look at our world through alienated eyes, in detached disbelief, knowing that their time is long gone, but that does not make the characters less valuable and interesting.

Angels walk among us

Angels walk among us. Raffaello Sanzio da Urbino (1483-1520). Angel 1500-1501

Angels walk among us. One day you meet someone and for some inexplicable reason, you feel more connected to this stranger than anyone else – closer to them than your closest family. Perhaps this person carries within them an angel – one sent to you for some higher purpose; to teach you an important lesson or to keep you safe during a perilous time. What you must do is trust in them, even if they come hand in hand with pain or suffering – the reason for their presence will become clear in due time. Though here is a word of warning – you may grow to love this person but remember they are not yours to keep. Their purpose isn’t to save you but to show you how to save yourself. And once this is fulfilled; the halo lifts and the angel leaves their body as the person exits your life. They will be a stranger to you once more. Lang Leav, Love & Misadventure.
