"Skyskrapor" ~ Gösta Adrian-Nilsson, c.1918-19.
Gösta Adrian-Nilsson (b.1884 in Lund - d.1965 in Stockholm), usually referred to as GAN, was a Swedish artist and writer. He is regarded as a pioneer of the Swedish modernist art movement.
GAN debuted as an artist 1907 with an exhibition at the Art Museum of the University of Lund. After studies at Zahrtmann’s School in Copenhagen he traveled in 1914 to Berlin to study modernism. Through the writer Herwarth Walden’s gallery “Der Sturm” he came into contact with the contemporary art scene. Both Wassily Kandinsky and Franz Marc were of huge importance when he began developing a semi-abstract style with deep, vibrant colors, a style of expressive Cubism. He was fascinated by modern technology and “masculine strength” which was reflected in his artistic works.
In 1916 he moved to Stockholm, where his modernistic art and propaganda for the new art gained much attention. Around 1919 his art was developing into pure abstraction, and in 1920 he made several collages in the Dadaist style. Between 1920 and 1925 he lived in Paris where he came in contact with Alexander Archipenko and Fernand Léger. Léger’s influence can partly be seen in his rendering of mechanical human figures. GAN produced geometric abstract works around the end of 1920s, and during the 1930s developed his own personal relationship with surrealism and took part in exhibitions such as Kubisme-Surrealisme in Copenhagen in 1935 ~ Wiki

Trish Buziak… 1936-2013.Twenty years ago when I was spending more time on my back than on my MS weakened legs, I used to get quite annoyed at Ed clicking away at me when I wasn’t expecting it. But he caught me here in one of my favorite tops - so I’m OK about it for once - or the second time actually because it’s the same top I’m wearing 15 years later in his Moleskine notebook drawing of me which I didn’t like at all… but it shows the reality of my life!

"Night and Day #1" ~ Ed Buziak, 2013.Acrylic on canvas painting 81 x 60 cms.
My impression and rendering of the first rays of fiery light from the sun reflected from the undersides of stormy clouds before breaking the horizon… so separating night and day… as typically seen on my early morning walks across the local French countryside.

Draw every day… every moment you have…
A black male resident in a decrepit adult home for the mentally ill, already in his 60s, R. A. Hamilton would have seemed an unlikely candidate to become a major artist. But he did just that. Once he began to make art, he sustained his interest and developed his career until his death, even re-teaching himself to draw after a stroke.
