HALL OF FAME
Previous artists of the year:
Robert Steven Connett
"Born in 1951 in San Francisco, California, I began drawing and painting at the age of 27. I continued to create artwork as a hobby for 20 years during which time I owned and operated an insurance brokerage firm in San Francisco. I sold the firm in 1998 at age 47 after my home and art collection was destroyed by a fire. I then moved to Los Angeles in 2003 where I began my full time art career at the age of 52"
MY PURPOSE: I specialize in custom acrylic paintings. I'm not sure how one might categorize my style. ('Psycho-representational' seems right ) I'll let my paintings speak for themse
INTERVIEWS / UPCOMING SHOWS Interview with Martin de Diego Sadaba Interviewed by Teseleanu GeorgeINTERVIEWS / UPCOMING SHOWS in Personal More Like This
Tell us a little about the art styles that you use:
I develop different kind of works, I do concept, classical illustration and portraits for commissions but my personal works flows between fantasy and dark surrealism. I’m opened to many things it’s hard for me to find a personal line of work or a personal style, maybe my personal strokes would define my style.
Why did you choose these art styles?
It’s how when you are hungry and you open the fridge, you know exactly what your stomach wants to taste. I develop “my styles” because it’s what feeds my hunger.
How can you define in your own word, surrealism?
Intuition speech is the best definition I could find.
What influenced you to become an artist and how did your family/friend react to the idea?
Like someone said. When we are children we all draw, but mo

Art in Contemplation of Its Own BecomingDuchamp finds a discarded urinal. He alters it (by signing a name to it not even his own, but obviously “the artist’s”) and names it “The Fountain”. The most mundane, even off-putting, of objects is transformed by Duchamp into art. He submits it for exhibition and it is rejected. You might say the judges “pissed on” his idea. But the idea was born and persisted. Duchamp insisted the object was art because he as an artist presented it as such. “Conceptual Art” was born.Art in Contemplation of Its Own Becoming in Personal More Like This

Spaceman with no face 2 by bradwright
I've been playing Alien: Isolation for the last few weeks and it is scary as hell.
Alien Isolation Q&A with bradwright
Brad Wright, longtime deviant in the dA community, steps into the shoes (space boots) of Giger and Moebius as a concept designer for the Alien Isolation videogame. The game reportedly marks a return to the terror of the original “Alien” film in which scaring the audience to death was the goal, rather than the uncorking escalating levels of defensive firepower that defined the sequels.
How To Give Better Comment - (Edited Version)Ever wanted to know the key in giving better comments? Tired of your ordinary short phrases that go no where, and have no point? If you are trying to improve your comments, look no further than this guide here.How To Give Better Comment - (Edited Version) in Personal More Like This
How To Give Better Comments
During our visit here at deviantART, upon submitting our deviations, what is expected next? Comments! However, here's a little fun past-time activity: take all the excellent, if not better, deviations comments in your gallery. Now take a look at all the deviation comments you've ever received. You will notice that good comments don't happen as often as they should. Although we all want good comments and to be better commenters ourselves, we have to act upon it instead of just sitting around and hoping to receiving nice comments after submitting something. Give, to receive.
Here I show you the basic concept of commenting, to make yourself a better commenter; and I don't mean being a 'good' commenter since everyone comments in his or her own way. That i

Working like crazy here. Just finished a poster for the Conimbriga show and I'm preparing my next solo show which opens on Tuesday.
UPCOMING GROUP SHOW
To celebrate the 50 years of the Conímbriga Monographic Museum, Santiago Ribeiro has gathered together surrealists from nine countries to exhibit works:
Daniel Hanequand, Francisco Urbano, Gromyko Semper, Héctor Pineda, Keith Wigdor, Liba WS, Majisme Majo, Paula Rosa, Santiago Ribeiro, Shahla Rosa, Sio Shisio, Steve Smith, Ton Haring, Victor Lages, Vu Huyen Thuong and Yuri Tsvetaev
The Monographic museum is Portugal's second most visited museum. The ruins date back to 100 BC. This antique setting juxtaposed against modern surrealist art is bound to be extraordinary.
Created in 1962 the Monographic Museum of Conímbriga is exclusively dedicated to the archaeological site where it is located. Its coll
