about a new place by =agnes-cecile "When I first saw this work: I felt like I was seeing music, like I was smelling poetry or I was listening to a painting. It's beautiful how it melts with artificial reality (the concrete wall) and natural one (the vegetation under it). It feels like it's trying to give harmony to life."

about a new place


This little garden is the entrance to my studio.

Acrylic on untreated wall, I took this picture today, I made this painting in May, it has already seen a lot of rainy days but acrylics are still there :D
I spent about 10 hours to finish it.

The vision fits the title perfectly. If I am correct, it's about people looking for a bright future, right? It looks amazing, and you are a brilliant artist.

I've been seeing a lot of graffiti, and paintings similar to that. The thing that makes it original is that there are butterflies that are attracted to the girl, and playing peacefully with her.

It would have had more flair if the walls weren't dirty, and that the blue, and pink sparks would be lowered a little bit. The eyes seems to be a bit different. If you look closely, the left eye is looking to the upper right, while the right eye is looking to the lower right. You have a nice touch with the butterflies there. You make it seem so colorful, and vibrant. Nice job.

It would have made a little bit more impact if my suggestions from the technique were shown. But since there were rainy days, that seems to be excused. It was a great idea for you to put a graffiti artwork near your studio, and I think that putting butterflies, and those little sparks added a little flair and colorfulness into the piece. Overall, I think that it's great, and you really have done a great job on this piece.

Oh I am really sorry I didn't realize what really happened until I read the other critique. I am terribly sorry for judging too lightly. I will never do it again and I hope I could critique your artwork better.

Vision: This was definitely a perfect introduction to your exhibition. I've looked at your gallery on dA and the beauty of it is representative of your signature style. There is consistency. A theme.

Originality: Even though I've given you five stars for all criterions, I believe 'originality' is the biggest strength of this. You have broken away from the typical conventions of graffiti. I'll explain further.

Technique: Your choice of medium is what makes 'about a new place' original. You opted for acrylic instead of aerosol paint which is commonly used to create graffiti. And your execution is amazing. I admit that I wondered how come after being in contact with rain the paint still remained. I did a little research and found on wikipedia that acrylic "become[s] water-resistant when dry."

Impact: Another element that makes this original is, as I mentioned in 'vision', it's characteristic of you. And your style is different from graffiti, in particular that found in hip hop culture. Of course it's not a matter of your style is better than typical graffiti or vice versa. I have a large respect for all artists who express themselves as individuals, regardless of whether I like their style or not. But I do like the soft femininity of this in the way you painted the butterflies, the colours, and the woman. I particularly love the paint drip effect, a trait inherent in your style.

You have brought your art to a new canvas, a wall. Brilliantly done.

This piece is amazing. And even more so that its is on a garden wall! I've watched your videos on YouTube for years now and I think that all your work is inspiring but this has to be by far my favourite. Everything about it makes me feel like I could stare at it all day. I've seen some people leave criticism on your work before saying you over do it but I can't see any mistakes with this or any of the pieces. It really does inspire me and makes me want to go and paint over the outside of my house! The work doesn't even look like its actually on the wall! It looks as though its been superimposed there which makes me love it more knowing that its acrylic. I would love to attempt to paint something like this!

First off, let me start by saying I have absolutely no artistic knowledge at all, nor do I believe I have anywhere near this type of talent. So, that being said, I'm a dad and a husband, and we all, as a family, found this and were immediately drawn to it. I think it's beautiful, we thought the video was fun, and that the end result is stunning. You have talent, an obvious love for what you do, and simply put we were happy you did it. Plus, my little girl loves the butterflies. Please keep it up and we look forward to more of your work. Thanks!!

Honey. Oh, honey.

Do tell, does it make you feel better about yourself to down-grade this person's amazing work? Well, does it?

I'm sorry, but if you're trying to feel good about yourself, you really do need a new method. I'm not saying you're horrible and I hate you and go to hell. Because I don't want any such things to come about.

All I ask, is that you really take the time to think about someone else. It's not difficult. And it doesn't hurt. Just try not to seek so much attention. I'm only telling you this because of all the hate people are firing mercilessly in your direction. What you need to do is not hate back at them, but take a good hard look at yourself and maybe you'll understand why people say these things.

The only way you'll be liked, and gain any respect, is to give that same thing back first. This is a two-way street. Positive attention is NOT something you can just ask for and expect someone to give to you. You have to actually give them a reason to want to talk to you, or to be your friend, or who knows, maybe even give you a 'llama'.

Please, please, please, don't be this way just for the attention. All this is doing to you is making you come across as a terrible person, and I don't want to think that's what you are. You might feel better about yourself if you start drawing pictures with happier themes. Even if what's in them might not be how you actually feel, you may find it helps you to feel good about yourself without completely disrespecting another person. Take the matter into your own hands, and stop asking everyone else to take pity on you. I mean it. I don't hate you. This isn't a mean or disrespectful comment. I'm saying all this, because you're probably a nice person. Deep down.

A useless case of a fail troll. That what she is. :hmm:
