A Whack on the Side of the Head

Artist Rafael Barrios recommended this book to me, A Whack on the Side of the Head by Roger Von Oech.
I just started to read it when I found this and I couldn't resist myself from sharing it.

"By changing perspective and playing with our knowledge, we can make the ordinary extraordinary"

KiptonArt enables interior designers to source emerging artists

Posted on Tuesday, February 22, 2011.

KiptonArt, the online gallery for emerging artists, has announced the
launch of an invitation-only Interior Design Studio,  enabling designers
to share art with clients through online portfolios, and search over
$33 million of art by price, style and medium.



Canti Chair by Brad Luczak


"The inspiration came from our desire to make it easy for Interior
Designers to access the most cutting edge emerging artists," said
KiptonART founder Kipton Cronkite. "We are seeing massive interest
from interior designers (in emerging art) and this is something they have
been asking us to develop."

A personalized art advisory service will be launched in coming months
to help designers navigate the 8,700 images and 1,550 artists in the
database.

KiptonART Featured Artist NADIA MARTINEZ




KiptonART Featured Artist NADIA MARTINEZ


This interview was publish August 3rd, 2011 
click KiptonArt Online Magazine.

At what age did you know you were an artist?
Since I can remember I always liked to draw, I have always liked the creative aspect of things; however, I never took it very seriously until I came to NY and started taking art classes in 2001.

What was the first work of art you created?
I remember my mother being very proud of me about a mini watercolor I did on a wood veneer sample, it was about 2 x 3 inches.

What is one of your favorite past exhibitions?
In 2003, I saw Leonardo da Vinci, Master Draftsman at the Met and Matthew Barney at the Guggenheim, the same day. Amazing contrast but at the same time very similar; both doing things that were not common or “normal” at their respective times.

Who/what is your biggest influence or inspiration right now?
My faith and Street Art are my biggest inspirations at the moment.

What is the first thing that comes to mind after an opening?
I can finally have time to just look and enjoy my work. However, soon after I start thinking what is next; either continuing the same body of work or change medium and start a new series.

Why do you work in this particular medium?
Every time I start a new body of work I try to use a different medium, it gives me energy and inspiration. Mediums are to me like languages and by using them I feel I am creating a new “Culture”.

Do you collect anything?
Ideas, images and any kind of interesting materials.
