Triptych Canvas Art - Saturday, November 20, 2010

Multi-panel canvas pictures are becoming increasingly more popular today, artists are designing more artwork over several pieces of canvas to create a more visually pleasing image. A piece of artwork spread over 2 panels known as diptychs or 3 panels triptych are visually more striking and help pull of a variety of effects, this gives the artist more room to work with.

Having looked at triptych art it becomes clear that it's not just a chain of prints. In fact they are one distinct painting that is spread out over seperate pieces, forming one image out of a variety of smaller canvases. This leaves you with a panel set that needs to be aligned carefully to retain the desired image.

It's important when printing multiple canvases to remember to print them on high quality wrap canvas and hung close together, with a customarily space of between 1 and 2 inches seperating each piece, this helps take advantage of the look of a triptych canvas. The good thing about a multi-panel canvas is that it can help add a new dimension to a relatively boring subject.

We at Mohka pride ourselves on the range of triptych canvas print that we offer. From the latest modern triptych art ro striking abstract triptych art we are sure to have what you're looking for. Our range is second to none and hope you enjoy your canvas.

Matisse And His Amazing Colours - Saturday, November 20, 2010

Matisse discovered his passion for art in an unusual way, following an attack of appendicitis his mother brought him some art supplies and started painting. Matisse said "From the moment I held the box of colours in my hands, I knew this was my life." Matisse was widely known for creating artwork with amazingly striking colours such as red canvas, yellow and blue. He was a amoung a group of artists who foudned Fauvism which meant the artists works emphasized different brush strokes and strong colour.

One of Matisse's best known paintings was The Egyptian Curtain, it's a wonderful painting whose colour radiates sunshine. The Egyptian Curtain is said to be an accurate reflection of the way we look at things, it has been said that if you stand inside a room on a sunny day and stare through the window at something, your eyes become adjusted to the brightness of the sunlight. WHen you look back at something in the room, you are partially blinded while your eyes adjust to the change of light. Matisse used this theory whilst painting The Egyptian Curtain to increase the lumiance of his colour.

At Mohka we love Matisse's work and his use of amazing colour. We find it empowering and a great source of inspiration, espcially if the weathers dull. We offer a large range of red wall art that encompass the same striking and vibrant colours like Matisse. What ever size or image you choose, the team at Mohka will ensure that only the highest quality materials are used.

Contemporary Film Canvas Art - Saturday, November 20, 2010

A notable movie poster is a tricky thing to find. The majority of posters are cut and paste jobs that don't persuade somebody to buy the movie well the least bit. A great poster is meant to fascinate, surprise, engage & excite. It would ideally be visually attractive or innovative. Especially, it must be so memorable that with a solitary glance it will be immediately identifiable.

Ultimately, what was only a one-time-use reproduced canvas designed for movie promotion, started to be renowned as poster art. Almost immediately, creative film posters started to become amongst the most in-demand items of film merchandising, with unusual contemporary wall art frequently realizing vast sums at fine art auctions.

"In Space No-One Can Hear You Scream", "Where's the Beef?", "The Ultimate Driving Machine" These, plus a variety of similar publicity slogans have penetrated the public's psyche. The immediately familiar slogans are truisms of our generation. They conjure images of triumph and thoughts of comfort.

They're just the results of a multi-billion pound industry directed by a handful of massive international enterprises that invent multi-level marketing campaigns. They utilize these slogans in films and film posters to drive the general public to purchase products, services, and ideas, among other profit-making products. The sayings are engineered in order to educate us to become committed consumers, and they normally succeed.

Vintage Russian posters are the focus of art exhibitions around the world and professional enthusiasts will shell out hundreds of dollars for a hand-painted poster of well known movies. Though the posters are seen as art, not everyone agrees the painters are actual artists. Today if you are employing a hand-drawn poster the public will assume it is a cheap movie.

Of late those marquees are increasingly a fading art. Painters who specialize in making film posters are finding it more challenging to come across employment because movie producers have shown a preference for for polished computer designed canvas prints. A hand-painted contemporary canvas film advertisement costs between £100 and £200 and are typically displayed in a handful of cinemas before the elements fade them. A digitally-engineered poster printed on plastic costs as much as £500, however can travel to more than 20 theaters before it fades.

Should Turner Have Credited A Volcano? - Saturday, November 20, 2010

The British seascape artist Turner said his painting was not to be analyzed but "to show what such a view was like". The superb dramatic sunset canvas prints of Joseph Turner were more than just artistic license - they in fact captured the impact of volcanic eruptions that caused shifts in the Earth’s climate. Experts have looked at the dramatic sunsets produced by JMW turner and other masters to figure out the cooling impact of giant volcanic eruptions.

A committed team of scientists studied the paintings of old masters like JMW Turner and Rembradt to assess the quantity of actual pollution spewed into the sky. The geological archives of eruptions in Mount Tambora, Indonesia, in 1815, and Mount Krakatoa in 1883 among others had been inspected. The eruptions distributed a blanket of dirt and chemicals around the planet and sent overall temperatures tumbling, resulting in failing crops as well as numerous famines.

News reports from the time describe beautiful sunsets for some years afterwards, as the thinning brightness was spread by clouds of particles distributed high in to the atmosphere. By inspecting the application of color of sunset canvas art produced before and following these kinds of eruptions, the experts assert they have the capability to estimate the level of material in the air when they were painted.

The experts asserted that the redder landscapes noticed in canvas prints "can be tentatively attributed to the volcanic eruptions, as opposed to abnormalities in the color degradation attributable to age, or further indiscriminate elements affecting every artist’s colour depiction". The experts went over the ratio of red and other colours in the sky to assess the amount of particles in the air produced by each volcano. Their findings, the scientists claim, are remarkably alike to estimates taken from historical observations in addition to analysis of evidence found in ice cores. For this reason it may be said that we wouldn’t enjoy such an outstanding tradition of sunset canvas art in a world without volcanoes.
