Artist of the Month - Lora-VysotskayaWe the group:iconart-glory: has introduced a new segment named " Artist of the Month" where we get up, close and personal with an artist, discussing about their artistic journey and most importantly what made them an "Artist".
So without further ado, let's welcome our first artist on spotlight, our very lovely :iconlora-vysotskaya:
She's a talented artist from Ukraine with her own distinctive style of art and whose contribution to DA community is incomparable.
1. Could you tell us a bit about yourself and how you got started as an artist?
I live in Ukraine, I’m married and I have two daughters. I’m an engineer and a logistician, but I left my work 9 years ago when my youngest daughter was born. So, I was a dedicated housewife, when by chance I exploredthe world of photomanipulation 4 years ago. It happened when my husband asked me to make a couple of collages for his work. At that time I had an iPad mini, and I used Bazaart (a pretty simple app for IOS) to make

Interview with JayGraphixxI am pleased to continue our interview series! This time we have an artist with awesome painting skills and a strong imagination! :iconJayGraphixx: is a nice and very helpful person and an outstanding artist in our community! Let's learn more about him!
1. What was your first contact with art?
I think my first contact with art began with just mere curiosity; I was 6 or 7 at the time. My sister had an art book with some sketches of eyes and lips inside. I was engulfed by the way the eyes were drawn and without her permission, I replicated one of the eyes in her sketchbook. When she figured out what I’ve done she wasn’t angry but quite surprised at how I drew the eye. Even though traditional drawing was just a hobby of hers she taught me a little about it, you could say she was my first teacher in art. From there I just started to draw but it was intermittently throughout the years. I’ve never done anything digitally regarding

:icondasghul:: Why did you choose the crow? What is the best thing about them?
:iconcaddman:: why the crow?
let us step back in time
to the very frist awareness
i was five years old and
playing in the living room
of the house that i grew up in
the blinds were drawn
with sun light shining through
then suddely a pecking sound
i did hear and see a crow
i ask my mum
what is that outside
that is your spirt guide
in life and will help you
on that day the link was set
i then than become one
with my brother & sister crows
so is the reason for the crow in my icon used here @ DA

This site really sickens me sometimesI mean, Jesus..
For one, even I have kinks. I'm pretty open minded. But the amount of depravity on DA sometimes makes me want to leave it.
I don't even know where to start when it comes to the fetishes. Aparrently there's a fetish that sexualizes giant, inflated women with blue skin like in Willy Wonka? Wtf.
But what disturbs me the most...is the sexualization of abuse.
First of all, I'm all for BDSM. But BDSM is not meant to be abusive. It's meant to be consensual, with a lot of trust involved and yes, communication. Then when I see people creating art with basically woman being battered, and or raped..and sexualizing it. It makes me feel fucking sick.
If you're one of these people, who gets off on rape or abuse then I urge you to take a long look in the mirror and really ask yourself some questions about how your mind works. Have you ever met or talked to an abuse victim about their experiences? There's nothing sexy about it.
