Practicing My Art by Design

No pretty pictures of kitchens, products or art today. Just a heartfelt message I feel moved to share with you in case it might be something we have in common.  As a full-time “wanna be artist” I’m always thinking about how to get more time in the studio to work on my art. I beat myself up regularly because I do not make enough time. The days become weeks then months then years. I’m no longer young. My days on this planet are becoming fewer. I know this.

Explaining and sharing his vision and understanding of ceramic tile is what he does best and he has graciously agreed to dish his knowledge here with us at Artful Kitchens. Take it away, Ryan! (For your viewing pleasure I am including some photos from some of the Spanish tile brands seen at Cevisama15)

According to our friends at Wikipedia, “Street art is visual art created in public locations, usually unsanctioned artwork executed outside of the context of traditional art venues. The term gained popularity during the graffiti art boom of the early 1980s.” I have always been intrigued by the visual language of Basquiat and the mystery of Banksy.
