Leon eloquently puts it: The artists are a facilitating conduit; the elements beneath the conscious surface organize, interlace, and emerge from the cocoon of self. It is the Grand Magic, the emergent properties of style, substance, and self. “Emergent”, is the manifestation of this idea. It views art not as a linear thought, but as a tapestry of experience woven by skilled hands.

Come on over tonight to not only view the amazing art but meet with the artists who created it! See you between 6:30-9:30pm. For inquiries or catalog, please contact ANU@1AMSF.COM.

Street Art and Social Change: Rustam Qbic

Rustam Qbic is a Russian surrealist artist who’s work touches on themes of knowledge, community, environment, and education. His versatility can be seen with his illustrations, canvases, and large-scale murals. Recently he spent eleven cold days painting this beautiful nine-story piece in Nizhniy Novgorod, Russia; a part of the New City Festival.

81-691x1024

With the use of these dreamy pastel greens and blues, Rustam paints a picture of what could be a humble critique of humanity, freedom and knowledge. Be sure to check out his other walls and paintings, which explore more themes of nature, books, freedom and modernity! Read More »

The process of creating is a journey of exploration. An artist’s thoughts, habits, instincts, and history- these are the pixels that together create the portrait of a creative being. The artists themselves are a facilitating conduit; the elements beneath the conscious surface organize, interlace, and emerge from the cocoon of self. It is the Grand Magic, the emergent properties of style, substance, and self. “Emergent”, is the manifestation of this idea. It views art not as a linear thought, but as a tapestry of experience woven by a skilled hand.
