Art.

Hi, Steemit friends!

I recently started to collect art. This makes sense because art is both nice to look at and reflect human psychology.

I have bought three items over the last couple of weeks:

Time Assassin, 2012 by Eddie Martinez

H.C. Andersen La Petite Poucette (“Thumbelina”) by Theo Tobiasse.

I like the redness of it all with Thumbelina sitting on a flower.

‘Unnamed’ by Sverre Bjertnes and Bjarne Melgaard

I bought this one a the recent exhibition at Fineart. I like the contrast between the raw style of Bjertnes and the more feminine style of Melgaard.

I see that there are also many talented artists at Steemit. Recently, the artist Sabo was suspended from Twitter, and with increased censorship, hopefully, Steem can offer a ​safe haven which could be pretty profitable for the artists too.

Art is both a good investment, 'tax free' and nice to look at: Just as silver and gold!

All of this is simply awesome, The human soul is hungry for beauty; we seek it everywhere - in landscape, music, art, clothes, furniture, gardening, companionship, love, religion, and in ourselves. No one would desire not to be beautiful. When we experience the beautiful, there is a sense of homecoming.
People tend to think of their taste in art as being basically static; if one is a strict devotee of realism, one is not likely to wake up one day and find one’s self enamoured of the bright swirls of a Kandinsky painting, for example, or the nonsensical landscapes of Dali.

This is, however, as erroneous as the common belief that our basic personality traits are inherent and immutable; emerging research shows that we can, in fact, profoundly change our minds where art is concerned—but it usually takes some trying circumstances to bring about this alteration. According to recent studies, we are more likely to relate to surrealistic art if we have recently been forced to confront our mortality.

While the idea of finding comfort in art (and the feelings of transcendence it provides) in the presence of existential threats is nothing new—sacred artworks have been crafted since the dawn of civilization to provoke such sensations—this new research is demonstrating that the same benefits may be garnered from purely secular works as well. Surrealistic art in particular appears to be highly effective for this purpose.

@januasface, Such a adorable painting art works you bought from recent exhibition at Fineart. It's more valuable. I know talented can't give any worth.

This makes sense because art is both nice to look at and reflect human psychology.

Absolutely yep..Both one combination giving most fascinating scenery. Someone prefer to collect art works; then they get massive inspiration. Above three arts more meaningful where you bought at fineart. I seriously like all paintings there. Final one of Unnamed tremendous one. How many art works do you collected? It's interesting thing. Nice you decided to share community.

@janusface,
That "Time Assassin" artwork, I could get the meaning of it! But I saw a clock who got human legs! How much cost you for these artworks? Anyway those are a good collection!

Cheers~

These are interesting pieces. Do you by chance collect oil paintings? I memories of an oil painting that hung in our dining room as a child of a and water-buffalo near a small body of water.

@janusface - Sir you found nice artworks... I agree with you Sir... All artists can use Steem blockchain as the place to share their works... This is the safe heaven & it'll rise the price of Steem too Sir...

+W+

A stunning publication, I adore paintings .
Thank you for sharing . I hope to publish new paintings in the future .
Accept my greetings @januface

The art that can be seen from 20 to 25 years ago is very valuable to this world because the art is currently being extinct, I think the art here has been completely unique and it is possible to make an exhibition with very beautiful exhibitions weird which can bring the whole world It is possible to introduce them because these arts look really amazing.

Those are indeed some nice artworks that you got.While as it seems Steemit is sure gonna be a home for many in the coming as the days are approaching many Steem Blockchain apps are really getting famous and are attracting a lot of attention as well.

Steemit has a great future that we can all share of.

just awesomw concept of art..
outstanding art no doubt,,
its so great looking ,,really awesome

I wonder how much these arts are worth. My friend is an art collector and one of these arts have price tag of 15K which was about 20 years ago. I wonder what it’s worth now. Nice art though! ‘Unnamed’ by Sverre Bjertnes and Bjarne Melgaard is I assume the most expensive by far.

Unnamed artwork makes senses. It's remarkable & you have outstanding senses to select the best artworks. Good collection of artworks.

Hello @janusface,

Extraordinary good artworks & you made an incredible selection.

Wow you bought these three items? I can't seem to decipher their concept, but it sure looks like the have fantastic meaning to their depth, I really love the loud colours, was it in portrait or digital mode? Was it expensive?

its amazing , you done very good work @januface
good to see your beautiful art work

these are beautiful and amazing to see such nice artwork wow :D

Its a great art work :) enjoyed this stuff @janusface

Excellent art can be seen here, I think he has made these art works, he is really artistic and an accomplished artist.These pictures play a great role in the role of some art around the world and are trying to mean things that are good from things. They are meant to mean that they are very good-minded because they can not possess a good mind knowing that they are a dynamic can not be an artist.These artworks may be outdated, but there are many things to understand from this ad, and from here the artists have a good attitude to express!

Thank you for your continued support of SteemSilverGold

what a beautiful art thanks
