Vik Muniz: He resolved a fight and he got shot by and man and in return for an apology he got money and came to america. He is wondering if art can change humanity They show a kindergarten classroom and how they watch a video on how he has to go in a garbage landfill and work there.
Whereby eating is an everyday, necessary act, the gestural marks left by Antoni’s tongue on the surface of the busts leave the viewer to piece together an imagining of the process. Cleaning oneself too is an everyday, necessary act. The selectively and sometimes heavily worn, smoothed over surfaces implicate to the viewer the artist in the process of creating such a surface. The implied intimacy that is evidenced by the surface of these busts weaves a relationship of both disgusted retraction and keen attraction in the work.
Wasteland is a documentary by Lucy Walker that depicts the lives of selected garbage pickers in Jardim Gramacho – a massive dumpsite found in the outskirts of Rio de Janeiro. The film is about Vik Muniz’s 2-year journey back to his home country seeking to give back to an impoverished community through making images out of an unusual material – trash. The film featured 7 garbage pickers from the landfill, and each has a story that brought them to their current places. One unique thing about the whole creative process is that the pickers themselves became part of it. Vik imagined that as they work on their own and each other’s images, the pickers will not only show themselves to a broader world that is for now comfortably oblivious of their existence, but also see themselves differently (Fuchs, 2010).
Raphael, Gardo and Rat are the three main characters in the novel, who battle poverty with not enough food, proper shelter or an education. They are small boys with a lot of strength, but even bigger hearts, as they try to bring justice to the poor. In the novel, Andy Mulligan thoroughly explains a range of Global Issues, including Poverty, Child Labour and Government Corruption, without a doubt confirming the statement that our world is not your world. Andy Mulligan depicts poverty as a major global issue in the novel ‘Trash’. An example to prove this, is a quote from Raphael, describing the living conditions of his… not so ‘home-like’ home.
The Graffiti Debate was a challenging discussion for me. Some of the objects I found, I did not believe were pieces of art. The 2009 Graffiti Mural Project used a lot of color with the musical instruments and the people. I think it is incredible. Lee Quinones seems to do pretty dark matter for his murals, but some of his other artwork, is not so dark.
Trying to keep an Empathetic approach to religion, I choose to focus on the Avarice(greed) portion of the painting because that is my theme for this project. In this portion of the painting it looks like grey haired man to the right is pay someone to assisted him and seeing that there looks to be scribes sitting down taking notes, it might be that the grey-haired man is paying off a judge. This is my interpolation of the painting and this what I love about the arts and how art and culture intertwine to help us express ourselves and understand cultures different from our own. The Greed within this portion of the painting can be tied to resent history with in the United States of America with mafia paying off judges and cops to get there members off with a lighter sentence or away with the crime all together. It is amazing that over 500 years ago humans were painting pictures of greed and humans have still not learned to stop being so
The book “ Atala” is about a spanish man who raised a native to become modern and civilized. Even after being taught and mannered, the native wants to go back to nature to live in the wild. The Spanish man himself admires his love for nature because he wishes himself he could join him.(Document 3) In addition, the painting “Barbaric Tales” by Gauguin shows two polynesian woman looking beautiful with flowers in their hair in a forest. A European man is in the painting too but he is studying and admiring the natives, expect he looks evil and unproportional.
His use of pallid oil colors on canvas and the compositions of figures facing one another exemplify the contradiction within the nature of the different individuals. The venerable group of naked women and children to the left are portrayed to be standing on the foot of their mass grave, opposing the fully armored ‘robot-like’ soldiers ready for execution. The juxtaposition of the two kinds of individuals portrays different political perspectives; the soldiers representing the political benefits of the war, while group of women and children represent the catastrophic outcome of war. Picasso’s political perspective of the war is portrayed through his composition of the defenseless group, showcasing their grief-stricken faces over the idea of their and their children’s deaths. The lack of human faces on the soldiers signifies their lack of emotions and conscience, hence the degradation of humans in the future from the artists’ perspective.
Introduction Attention Getter ( Capture): Anyone walking down the street in a big city will see the bright, colorful, and illegal “eyesore.” Introduce the topic: Graffiti is illegal in many places but many larger cities also have “legal yards” where artists can paint without the fear of being arrested, like Freak Alley. But some people don’t like of any street art.
Her gaze is not towards us, her empty and cold gaze towards something else, maybe towards the endless fields, maybe towards some hope, it did not meet the camera lance. Her portrait depicts a moment of her own uncertainty, it does not require her name, silently expresses the agitation for her children. Dirty, seedy clothes and blank posture signify the hard work and limitations of the laboring class. As well as the involuntary gesture of her right arm, which reaching up to touch her chin also communicates the tension of her. Physical strength and limitless worry, a capable hand of productive labor and motionless absent-mindedness illustrate the futility.
In addition to the crowded street with more cars “one [is] apparently broken down with a man kneeling to fix it” thus providing an example of workers active in the work field. Essentially, the content of the art is not only provided by the actions of the passengers, but also by what is shown in the crowded busy street. Considering this painting depicts everyday life encourages people to go out and seek a product lifestyle. In other words, it opens their mind up to a different perspective of the current circumstance. In a sense, it provides the viewers to have a more positive outlook of the time.
Whether you want to be working at McDonalds or working only 40 hours a week. I see the graffiti as motivation to be in a better place than where you started. It can be the driving factor that helps you to reach your goals and more. Being able to live a life where you are content with what you have achieved. Furthermore, ultimately you can reach your desired
The use of such unnatural colors and the presence of revolutionary minimalist strokes represent the key features of the “art of the beasts” and provoked agitation within the critics. The colours of the painting are the main characters
Thus, Magritte most likely created this canvas painting in hopes to bring awareness to the way overthinking and being psychologically overwhelmed can become suffocating, eliminating the chance for intimacy in a romantic relationship between two people. Because of this, it will cause much frustration and continuous strain. These are the things that many people were ignoring, but Magritte urged for the public to think
