Author Inspirations – Warhol At The Met

Quote

“Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.” – Thomas Merton

A recent trip to the Metropolitan Museum of Art gave me a glimpse into some of the famous works of Andy Warhol and those inspired by him. Below is a gallery of photos I snuck in from the exhibit (shh, don’t tell!) I admire the way he inspired many by his active role in advertising, celebrity life & questioning traditional viewpoints on sexuality & political discourse. All of these things are seen vividly through his colorful works as well as the famous artists after him that he has influenced.

Share with us your favorite Warhol works!

Today’s Author Inspirations – Cinemagraphs

“Cinemagraphs”, or movement within still images is how Jamie Beck and Kevin Burg describe their patent-pending digital-evolutionary photography.

Beck and Burg, who run the popular Tumblr site From Me To You, showcases their creative skills while exploring the worlds of fashion, travel, nature and other life experiences.

Thanks to Mashable for writing this article to introduce readers to innovative “everyday people” who do what they love while making a significant impact in the digital/media world.

In addition to the creative GIF photographs, her still images are quite beautiful as well. The way Beck provides such crisp detail in all of her photographs as well as recognizing the various planes within a photo help to highlight the primary focus of each photograph, making each one unique and beautiful.

The photos surrounding this text were taken over New York Fashion Week last month.

Today’s Author Inspirations

To follow the Change on The Go motto, I only take the time to write author inspirations posts when I truly find something inspirational.

Thanks to Flavorwire, they have introduced me to a French street graffiti artist who goes by the name Shaka. His obscure use of 3D sculpture, bas-relief and intense color schemes make his work so completely innovative and unique.

If any of your future travels take you to Paris this month, Shaka’s work can be seen at the Alexandre Lazarew Gallery starting next week.

What I admire so much about this work is how detailed each piece is. While the pieces themselves express so much pain, you can’t help but find beauty in the eccentric colors that are incorporated into these works of art.

Visit Shaka’s site to discover more of his amazing work!
