Scouting Great Artists on Steem


Steem has a great Art Community, with artists from all around the world posting their artworks every day - and being rewarded for that!

Being an artist and making a living from it is hard: the Steem contents rewarding system plays an important role in the life of many artists - and maybe actually changed the rules about what being an artist means. This post is the first of a new curation service that @sndbox adds to its activity as incubator making thematic curation. The curator of this first post about Art on Steem is me, @paolobeneforti.

Peter Gric - @gric


Peter Gric is one of the artists on Steem I like more. His paintings are somehow surrealist and surely visionary and his technique is amazing. His style remember to me ancient painter like Bruguel and contemporary ones like Max Ernst as well. An example here:

@reinhard-schmid - Reinhard Schmid


Another talented artist is, in my opinion, Reinhard Schmid. His technique and his creativity are both astounding and his style browses between illustration, surrealism and irony. You can watch this "turbo-turtle accident" to see what I mean.

@twirble - Dania


Twirble (Dania) is a danish painter I like very much too. Her paintings and drawings seem to belong to a realm of dark fairy tales - but I know this is a very restrictive definition, as you can see watchin this artwork

@elewarne - Elewarne


Another artist I want to mention here is Elewarne. Her post-expressionist (sorry, another restrictive category) paintings have a great creativity and ability to communicate, as you can see in this painting:

@tomek.biniek.art - Tomek Biniek


The last artist I want to mention today is Tomek Biniek and his eerie - but also funny - digital paintings, made with a great technique. Look at this one

Thank You!


I left out of this selection a lot of great artists I met on Steem: my apologies! I promise to write more posts to mention all the Steemian artists I really like! :)

This guest curator has done really well but I think he is more interested in artworks. I think a little bit of flexibility will be appreciated so the curation can cut across every faced of talent .

·

That's true @sistem! Paolo is an artist :D

He's the first of many Guest Curators that will have their own unique subject of interest. Make sure to check out @sndbox-alpha as well, they curate rotating topics each month. Right now, it's Meetups and Philanthropy.

·

you are right, I selected just some painters: it is the only area where I have enough experience - and this was supposed to be a thematic curation! but I'm sure other guest curators will select valuable posts from many other areas!

Wow.... I glad to see this creativity arts. Really that, @paolobeneforti
have a super power about artist.
Perfect shot...I appreciate and respect him core of my mind.
Thanks for the share

I really love the work of @twirble. This remind me of real painting I used to see as a kid. It's great that you are rewarding talents here.

·

Thank you. Checked your website; seems you are doing much more important work. I am humbled.

Thank you. I appreciate

Everyone mentioned was worth the visit. For poems and raps check my page. Real lyricism. Not that mumble rap stuff. Congrats to the curated again. Keep it up.

great work @sndbox , keep it up

I like this project, I will resteemit..

 Much of my art is about exploring that very question, and in that process of discovery whether it be through old books, crusty videos, or just observation of life and its physical principles the artwork and writings I produce are the culmination all of the unconscious and conscious concepts that ultimately lead us, every single individual, in their own experience towards understanding that they are ultimately a free and self-sovereign human being. 

Really i appreciate you.

Wow ... this is one of the most extraordinary things, of course you and your team need a lot of power to select this. hopefully I have the opportunity to join a community that is very appreciative of every creativity of steemians.
Success always create @sndbox and team.
best regards me: @jubagarang

Love this channel! I'd be honoured if you'd check out my latest post, I do an acrobatic sport and make videos, perhaps you might consider it a form of art as I do!

congratulations for @paolobeneforti. you are crowned as the first curator of @sndbox .. and we hope you can also be a curator for us all here !!

Beautiful work! The quality of content here is remarkable, and I love that this first post sets the bar so high! I’d love to ask--is there an application process for becoming a guest curator? I’m an artist/consultant creating on the steemit platform and I’ve recently started to try out being a curator for a few groups, including Curie. @Sndbox is one of my favorite initiatives as an artist interested in cross-sector partnering and in general I’d love to know more!
