ALEXA MEADE

WHAT A DISCOVERY!

I just found Alexa Meade today. It’s a treat for my senses.

A reprieve from daily life.

Amazing talent!

RedLineBAlexa Meade (born 1986) is an American Installation Artist best known for her portraits painted directly onto the human body and inanimate objects in a way that collapses depth and makes her models appear two-dimensional when photographed. What remains is “a photo of a painting of a person, and the real person hidden somewhere underneath.”

She takes a classical concept – trompe l’oeil, the art of making a two-dimensional representational painting look like a real three-dimensional space – and turns it on its head by doing the opposite, making real life appear to be a painting.

~~Published on Sep 6, 2013~~

Alexa Meade takes an innovative approach to art. Not for her a life of sketching and stretching canvases. Instead, she selects a topic and then paints it – literally. She covers everything in a scene – people, chairs, food, you name it – in a mask of paint that mimics what’s below it.

In this eye-opening talk Meade shows off photographs of some of the more outlandish results and shares a new project involving people, paint and milk.

“WE DEMAND TO LIVE”

Joaquín Oliver

“The last day I saw my son was Valentine’s Day, so he was bringing flowers for his girlfriend.

We all have the right to react however we want. But the way we react will also be part of who you are. I lost my son and my best friend which is very painful. I can just be sad or fight.

It shouldn’t be the ‘new normal‘ to think that our kids could be targets.

This is not about me. This is not about how I feel. This is about my son. He’s part of what the kids are asking for.

Those kids you saw in Washington now have a new member.

Joaquín has a voice.”

Composite Photo Update, #3 …. 🇵🇷 Honoring my Country, Puerto Rico 🇵🇷 …. ‘Proud Boricua Woman’ …. “!!

HONORING PUERTO RICO

PERSONAL PHOTOGRAPH MADE WITH ‘LIVE COLLAGE’

“That looks like a Puerto Rican statue of liberty on steroids.”

(a friend told me)

Some of you may know, others not.

I am a fan of tattoos, having a few of them myself.

I’m also Puerto Rican, born and raised, living in the mainland.

Since September 20, 2017, when Hurricane María battered and almost flattened my country, my personal feelings have come to the surface.

My heart and soul ache for Puerto Rico.

It’s been a week today since I visited my tattoo artist for add ons, updates, coloring and completion.

Colors, shading, The ‘cemí’, the hibiscus flowers, the ‘Taíno coquí’ and the ‘Taíno sun‘ were completed.

The process is almost totally done.

Only minor details for the last sitting.

My tattoo artist, Barefoot Stacy, is amazing!

Here it is!

RedLineBSTatt

This is a proud Boricua woman, holding her head up high, ready to hold her stand and give the good fight.

This happens in Puerto Rico every minute of every day.

The fortitude of the Puerto Rican woman has been tested during the trying times since Hurricane María battered the Island on September 20, 2018, a bit beyond six months ago today.

I wanted to share another ‘almost complete’ result with you today.

 More will follow as it’s totally done.

Today I visited my tattoo artist again for add ons, updates, coloring and, mostly, for completion.

Colors, shading, The ‘cemí’, the hibiscus flowers, the ‘Taíno coquí’ and the ‘Taíno sun‘ were completed.

It is still a bit swollen, it’s still a bit ‘shiny’. 

The process is almost totally done.

Give a few weeks for skin healing and then another ‘sitting’ for any needed last detail.

My tattoo artist, Barefoot Stacy, is amazing!

Yesterday, I visited my tattoo artist.

I had an idea in my mind but Stacy showed me her idea and this is what she came up with.

I instantly fell in love with this image.

This is a proud Boricua woman, holding her head up high, ready to hold her stand and give the good fight. This happens in Puerto Rico every minute of every day.

The fortitude of the Puerto Rican woman has been tested during the trying times since the hurricane. 

There are still some details and colors to be added to the artwork.

I wanted to share this with you today.

 More will follow when completed.

Tencha, you rock!

That looks like a Puerto Rican statue of liberty on steroids.

💟 💟 💟

Comes to mind the last part of “En La Brecha“, de José de Diego.

Jeannette P.

My Facebook friend saw the image and commented as noted above.

I asked her about “En La Brecha” and here it is.

Jose

~En La Brecha~
Poema

José de Diego
¡Ah desgraciado si el dolor te abate,
si el cansancio tus miembros entumece!
Haz como el árbol seco: reverdece
y como el germen enterrado: late.

Resurge, alienta, grita, anda, combate,
vibra, ondula, retruena, resplandece …
Haz como el río con la lluvia: ¡Crece!
Y como el mar contra la roca: ¡Bate!

De la tormenta al iracundo empuje,
no has de balar, como el cordero triste,
sino rugir, como la fiera ruge.

¡Levántate!, ¡Revuélvete!, ¡Resiste!
Haz como el toro acorralado: ¡Muge!
O como el toro que no muge: ¡Embiste!

DESPACITO …. “🎼 Erika Ender …. Single Hit Phenomenon 🎼 …. Co-Writer of the Biggest Hit of the Year …. “!!


E1

~~January 6, 2018~~ 

ERIKA ENDER

~Co-Writer of the Biggest Hit of the Year~

She’s the force behind force and the power behind the single hit phenomenon

DESPACITO.

Credit where credit is due.

Let her voice carry you to the place where the sensual, slow version can take you!

GoldSwirl

When Erika Ender was a little girl growing up in Panama, she’d buy albums and inscribe them with imaginary ­dedications from the artists.

Ender, thanks to her work on this year’s Song of the Summer, “Despacito,” no longer needs to pretend that stars adore her work. Along with Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee, the 42-year-old is co-writer of the biggest hit of the year, featuring Justin Bieber, which spent 16 weeks atop the Billboard Hot 100.

Ender is a singer in her own right, a philanthropist who created a foundation in 2009 to help children, and one of very few successful Latin women in the songwriting field.

Now, since the release of “Despacito” in February, she is in demand from ­producers around the world. They’re eager for the sound of cultural fusion that Ender brings to her work, and which is rooted in her upbringing.

Born in Panama to a Brazilian mother and a US-born father of German ancestry, Ender speaks fluent Portuguese and Spanish, and moves easily between cultures.

GoldSwirlE2GoldSwirl

Before “Despacito,” she had written hits for Chayanne, Gilberto Santa Rosa, Gloria Trevi, Ednita Nazario and Los Tigres del Norte. She also is a TV personality in Latin America, where she has been a judge for a Latin version of American Idol.

“I see myself as a communicator of music,” she says.

“I’m three Erikas: the artist, the composer and the TV personality.

I have a long career in all three.

I’m like my hair,” she jokes. “I take up a lot of space.”

This year, which marks her 25th anniversary as a performer, Ender has a lot to celebrate. In May, she released her latest album, Tatuajes (Tattoos), and this month she’ll become the youngest inductee into the Latin Songwriters Hall of Fame, which will hold its gala Oct. 19 at the James L. Knight Center in Miami.

Hello!

My name is Heather Rooney.

I am an illustrator specializing in photo-realistic colored pencil and graphite drawings. Since finding my passion for portrait and figure drawing in high school, I have developed a technique focusing on high attention to detail.

I draw my inspiration from a broad range of cultural figures, such as sport athletes, media personalities, and entertainment professionals.

With each illustration requiring many hours of work, ranging from 30 hours to 100+ hours, I share my process through time-lapse videos on my YouTube channel, which has generated over 60 million views from a global audience.
