@itsstefa rocks

Stef Thiele is a painter living in Hamburg and happens to be the one artist – I admire the most. Her work is so modern and versatile. It can even translate well into marketing campaigns..

_______

Having observe her evolution over the past year or so – is an indication of greatness in becoming. She is the first artist I feature on Netdiver mag. Not the last! Stay tuned.

_______

Excerpt from her artist manifesto:

I am a viking. But despite my own uncompromising determination, my works consist of a difficult-to-describe mix of euphoric "what if’s" and melancholic “could have been’s”.

_______

The yearning for spontaneity and freedom collides with the compulsion to try to foresee the future and plan it meticulously. This is translated into busy, colourful compositions that are seemingly unable to find a clear focus.

_______

Often whole pictures are buried beneath the surface of a completed work, with only tiny parts of the past peeking through the hundreds of layers of thick brushstrokes and poured and thrown acrylic paint. Each picture is a battlefield – a back and forth between giving up control and winning it back.

I’m Back!

Has it been 7 weeks already? Never took time off from publishing nor curation to focus on creating ART only. Read the whole post for a more in-depth reveal of my new career direction.

________

Change of avatar = new journey for me.

Updated avatar reflects both sides of what content to expect in my feed: design + art.

cgwarex new avatar

_______

Netdiver mag will publish again – weekly – and as of right now lol. I still hold a lot of appreciation and respect for creators in the industry. Guess I just can’t stop showing what inspires me.

Curation of design + abstract art in the XXI century have resume.

_______

If you like Colourpop art – follow my Instagram feed to view my color explorations and where I share about processes, artist life, tools and tips. Oh and the Merge series is well under way, and I have loads of new works to show.

_______

Editorial addendum

Red hot on my mind is ‘content‘.. visual and written. What and how – staged or not – to show? What and how – personal or not – to write?

My eureka moment came when I realized I wanted to share my ‘explorations’ – as a big eye wanderer and record the ‘journey’.

That’s it. Simple. No limits – no constraints – no agenda – no schedule – no performance – no imaginary crowd to please.

I am on the ‘move’ creatively – an artistic explorer of sort – this is who I am – so who I am I – I will share.

Colourpop worlds

_Colourpop worlds invitation_

Going on an Art furlough

_Going on Art furlough_

Netdiver Mag will be on hiatus until mid-March /18. I am embarking in a most exciting phase of my life: preparing an exhibition worthy portfolio of both generative arts + abstract & plus fluid art paintings.

On top of that – 3 print portfolios to showcase paintings + generative art to gallery owners.

A lot and lots of work ahead.

_______

As you can see in the staging above – the orientation of renders is pretty much left to the taste of the buyer.

Follow my journey on /iG.

_______

I use an _honor system_ to sell my art: in love with one or to gift someone? DM/ and make me a fair offer (pricing do not include shipping & handling).

All renders available to download as hires to print locally. Gift Art now!

_______

Just Like Cake – 11 x 14 canvas – fluid art

A = business of Art

A = business of Art

Netdiver Mag will be on hiatus so I can concentrate on the upcoming launch of my generative art + abstract painting business.

Much to do – but pumped to enterprise to the finish line – a new ad(venture).

From: July 3 until September 3.

_______

via: Above visual by Kurppa Hosk – says it all. It takes talent in both aspects to succeed: business vision and creative goals.

Upcoming cgwarex.ART

I will launch my generative art + abstract paintings venture next Autumn – so I staged this little series to share with you – the future I am hoping for.

_______

I have been working on this for over a year now – and stoked my new website is starting to be designed. Online stores are in preps and will launch as soon as ready.

_______

Nothing beats staging to get perspective. I encourage you to do so for your personal projects.

.ART domain extension

Sunrise wave

I am thrilled beyond thrilled to have been accepted (vetted by a panel of artists) to own cgwarex.ART domain extension!

______

Self-explanatory

If you are an artist whose ‘name’ (as mine) says not much to a target audience – (unless you are one of the 1.5% of artists who live from their art) – then get yours.

Costs $$$ for the first year – but irrelevant if you think marketing $$$ to get your name out there. From now on – I will never have to explain what I do: .ART says it all.

Yay!

_______

Why choose .ART?

.ART is a new top-level domain created for the international art and culture community: identify – value word – express – inspire – search – connect – educate.

Now opened to all since May 10!
