Lionel Jusseret on Capturing the Unpredictable

"So I turned instinctively to documentary cinema. It allows for lighter equipment and more independence. I discovered the working methods of Robert Flaherty and Johan van der Keuken: intimacy with the subject, immersion and long term work. They were searching for unpredictability to inject life into their movies. That was what I wanted also".

Street Art to the Gallery: Interview with Revolue (Antipop), Brazil

"Graffiti is something to have fun with, but it also has a serious message. That’s why I don’t consider myself a graffiti artist anymore. For me, real graffiti artists are on the streets every day, tagging all around, sending messages...I like to observe, to hang with street artists. I truly respect them. My main goal is always to make people think - think about themselves, think about the city with a funny or sarcastic taste. In the end, its art, and for me, art is all about happiness".

Symbolism of Interiors in Félix Vallotton's Intimacies

Born on December 28, 1865, Félix Vallotton was a Swiss French painter and a lover of the theatre.

The Aestheticized Interview with Denis Brun (France)

"I think that art has not such a social role that contemporary society would like us to believe. Especially when it is used as a substitute to real politic or education to try to badly fix a certain lack of social cohesion, economical fragility or cultural poverty. At this level, society's expectations of the unifying and restorative potential of art (and artists) are totally disproportionate".

London's Turbulent Russian Market

The market for Russian art is one of the strangest in the auction world. It plays out in London – for the quasi-exclusive benefit of Russian dealers and collectors who jet in from Moscow. Its biggest sellers are artists beloved by Russians – who, to international collectors, appear little-known and over-priced. The market is not the preserve of Sotheby’s and Christie’s – but also involves their smaller cousins Bonhams and family firm MacDougall’s, launched in 2004 exclusively to sell Russian art.

The Symbolism of Flowers in the Art of Georgia O’Keeffe

O’Keeffe herself often commented that the colour and form of the flowers was more important than the subject matter, suggesting that she was interested in the natural form and capturing its beauty. Several feminist critics have praised O’Keeffe’s work as capturing feminist themes far ahead of their time. Certainly, in the era in which she was working, O’Keeffe was in a male-dominated world and was repeatedly reminded of her gender and otherness as she moved through the art world.
