10 Robots in 10 days (02)

10 Robots in 10 days (01)

Last month the snails took over this place. Now its the robot's turn. I will post up a robot a day for the next 10 days. They are all done by teachers from the studio. It was really fun with the snail, but i think its more interesting with the robot, since they look so different from each others.
So here we go..

Wang Yidong

Wang Yidong was born in the Yimeng area of Shandong province in 1955, received a degree from the Fine Arts Department of Shandong Art School in 1975 and then had his graduate studies interrupted by the Cultural Revolution. In 1982 however, he graduated from the Oil Painting Department of the Central Academy of Fine Arts, Beijing. His work has been exhibited worldwide from France to Japan, New York to Hong Kong, Canada to Italy, and in countless shows throughout China. He was one of six artists invited to America by Robert A. Hefner III for the opening of the Harkness House Exhibition in New York in April of 1987. Following that show, he lived in Oklahoma for one year, but the need to paint the subjects closest to him sent him home to China. He is currently an associate professor at the Central Academy of Fine Arts.

"South China Woman" is a portrait Wang made trying to combine an ancient Chinese style called Fantasy, which is very precise, and the early Renaissance style of painting. He found the model while traveling in Southern China.
I personaly like this painting alot, I like his use of warm and cool colour. The prespective of her dress' pattern is prefect. Also her expression is nicely captured.

Giant poo

A giant inflatable dog turd by American artist Paul McCarthy blew away from an exhibition in the garden of a Swiss museum, bringing down a power line and breaking a greenhouse window before it landed again, the museum has said.

The art work, titled "Complex Shit", is the size of a house.

The wind carried it 200 metres from the Paul Klee Centre in Berne before it fell back to Earth in the grounds of a children's home, said museum director Juri Steiner.
The inflatable turd broke the window at the children's home when it blew away on the night of July 31, Steiner said.

The art work has a safety system which normally makes it deflate when there is a storm, but this did not work when it blew away.

Steiner said McCarthy had not yet been contacted and the museum was not sure if "Complex Shit" would be put back on display.

China Olympic art

I'm not really into olympic sport that much. I know China is hosting this year olympic and thats all I know about the sport. But these China olympic logo for different sports are really well done. Using just some simple line, the logo are able to but chinese writing and sport together.
