Happy 70th birthday to a living legend and walking masterpiece, Sir Elton John.
On reaching his 70th year, Elton notes, “I’m interested in moving forward all the time, with what I create, my collaborations, and also with discovering the work of other people. I think age is immaterial, provided we keep our minds alive by being open to new things. I can be as excited by a new artist who plays me their demo as I am by a new record of one of my musical heroes. I can be excited by playing a new city I’ve never played before, or revisiting somewhere I know well and seeing how it’s changed. Life is a constant state of flux for us all, and I like to embrace that. I also feel very happy to use my position to bring attention to injustice in the world, and to try to help where I can. At this time in my life I’m the happiest I have ever been.” John and his husband David Furnish have been collecting art since the early 1990s. Counting Damien Hirst and Ai Weiwei among his friends, the Rocket Man isn’t shy about his collection. His catalog of paintings, sculptures, and glass works, among other art objects, is so extensive that a special curator manages the archive.
“You must understand that I live with my art collection,” John explained in a 2015 interview with online auctioneer Paddle 8. His full-time curator, Newell Harbin, is responsible for giving him tips on how to invest wisely. [ excerpt from artnet.com ]

The couple’s private collection remains relatively secret. It can however be seen as a reference as it includes many emblematic works of contemporary artistic creation from the past fifty years – Willem de Kooning, Louise Bourgeois, Gilbert & George, Tracey Emin, Damien Hirst, but also Andy Warhol and Jean-Michel Basquiat, their friend Keith Haring and Julian Schnabel who was at one time foreseen by Bruno Bischofberger as part of a trio with Warhol and Basquiat – and over 7000 photographs, including many modernist masterpieces signed by Man Ray, Andre Kertesz, Berenice Abbott, Alexander Rodchenko or Edward Steichen.

Sex, Drugs & Art.
Painter & sculptor Amedeo Modigliani was born in Italy on July 12, 1884 and began painting at 14.
In 1903, he moved to Venice, where his talents as an artist continued to grow, but so did his appetites, and he was soon drinking heavily and smoking hash.

In 1906, Modigliani moved to Paris, which was the avant-garde center of Europe at that time, where he threw himself feverishly into his work, as well as continuing to pursue his other three passions; drugs, alcohol and women. He also became friends with fellow painter Pablo Picasso, sculptor Constantin Brancusi and poet Max Jacob.
Despite his prolific output in Paris, he was often forced to exchange his work for basic necessities. However, he was saved from utter destitution by the steady patronage of a young doctor named Paul Alexandre.

The eruption of World War I in 1914 marked the beginning of yet another difficult period for Modigliani, whose perpetually poor health was exacerbated by his continued substance abuse and tumultuous romantic life.
During the war, Modigliani also drew on his earlier training to create more than 30 female nudes. Berthe Weill featured them in her gallery in late 1917, in what would be the only solo exhibition of Modigliani’s work held during his lifetime. However, Modigliani was given little time to exult in the honor, as the police caught wind of the exhibition and shut it down for “indecency” on the day that it opened.

In 1918, Modigliani’s health continued to decline, he sought refuge from the war in Nice, with a young art student named Jeanne Hébuterne, with whom he had become involved the previous year. Their daughter, Jeanne, was born that November.
As his health worsened, he returned to Paris in 1919 and began a rapid decline. He died of tubercular meningitis in 1920, at the age of 35, while Hébuterne held him in her arms. She in turn was so distraught that, despite being nine months pregnant, she threw herself from a fifth-story window, killing herself and their unborn child.
Modigliani created hundreds of paintings, drawings and 31 sculptures in his brief 35 years.

Jasper Johns at Pearl Street studio in 1955. Photograph by Robert Rauschenberg

Jasper Johns, Born in 1930, now 87, is an American painter, sculptor and printmaker associated with Abstract expressionism, Neo-Dada, and Pop art.
In the early 1950s, while working closely with Robert Rauschenberg in adjacent lofts in lower Manhattan, Johns resolved to be an artist. With this novel sense of determination, Johns did two things that would help establish his identity and significance as an artist. First, he systematically destroyed all existing work in his possession, vowing that henceforth his art would be free of perceptible debt to other artists. Secondly, he painted Flag, a curiously mature work inspired by a dream in which he saw himself painting an American flag.

More like a riddle than an expression of patriotism or unconscious zeal, Flag is, in many respects, deeply challenging. A close look at Flag’s surface confirms that Johns shared his contemporaries’ interest in the material properties of paint. In most other respects, however, Flag stood apart from its context: in an era that prized abstraction, Johns chose recognizable, commonplace subject matter.

Flag is covered with a lush array of drips and fleshy brushstrokes, initially confirming Johns’s kinship with mid-century American painting. Yet Johns’s motif and technique tell a different story – one of endings and beginnings, and the passage that comes in between. Begun in the fashionable medium of oil-based enamel paint, Flag was completed using the anachronistic medium of encaustic in which pigment is mixed with hot wax and, in Flag’s case, strips of newspaper and fabric to which the coloured encaustic adhered. As Johns explained it, encaustic allowed him to be more efficient and, at the same time, more deliberate in his gestures. In other words, because pigmented wax sets quickly, Johns could add another mark or strip of saturated paper or cloth with the assurance that any previously laid marks would remain unaffected. In this way, each discrete trace was preserved, effectively embalmed. [ excerpt from phaidon.com ]

CONCERT - J'ai eu la chance d'assister au spectacle de @Chilly_Gonzales accompagné du quatuor @kaiserquartett au @MontreuxJazzFestival ! 😊
▪Puissant showman, c'est un de mes artiste favori à propos duquel je rabâche constamment les oreilles à mon entourage. 🔊👂
▪Une virtuosité incroyable et un humour caustique. Si vous ne deviez voir qu'un show cette décennie ce serait le sien! ♩🎹🎻
▪Je vous invite à écouter SOLO PIANO ou CHAMBERS pour vous faire une idée de la trempe de ce grand pianiste.

LIVRES - Le dernier né d'Anna Gavalda est un livre pantoufle. Recueil de sept nouvelles, on y trouve une flopée de personnages touchants et toujours cette impression rassurante de "vraie vie". 😊
▪On est ravis de retrouver le style typique de l'écrivaine et on adore se trouver nez à nez avec ces phrases-perles dont elle a le secret. ▪Pas du calibre d'"Ensemble c'est tout" ou de "La consolante", c'est néanmoins un bon livre qui semble être là pour nous faire patienter entre deux chefs d'oeuvres. ⏳📚

I sure do love how this colab piece with @mark_birk turned out. That negative space and gold monopoly man🖤 #AMArt #MoneyPiece #NegativeSpace #Gold #Splatter #PlantObsession #HornyForArt #ArtArtArt #ArtIsForTheSoul #MonopolyMan #PLUR #Namaste

Sex & Art. "The painter must give a completely free rein to any feeling or sensations he may have and reject nothing to which he is naturally drawn." ~ Lucian Freud

In the middle of the sitting there was a knock at the door. A beautiful woman entered the studio. She did not say a word but went straight to the bathroom. The Grand Painter followed the young woman. He would be back in a few minutes. Then, there was the sound of people having sex behind the bathroom door. After a bath, the painter returned naked to the studio and continued painting. Lucian Freud (1922–2011)—the genius painter and elegant enfant terrible—thrived on sex, he needed it as a source of inspiration, to focus on the only thing he ever wanted to do: Painting. Freud painted seven days a week, 18 hours a day. He examined his models, ruthlessly inspected and exhausted them, for months, sometimes even for years. He did not want to paint them the way they looked, but who they were. [ excerpt from http://artillerymag.com/freudian-pleasures/ ]
Freud, who is estimated to have more than 500 female lovers, was also rumoured to have fathered as many as forty children, although this number is generally accepted as an exaggeration. Fourteen children have been identified, two from Freud's first marriage and 12 by various mistresses.
In 2008, Benefits Supervisor Sleeping (1995), a portrait of 280-pound civil servant Sue Tilley, sold for $33.6 million – the highest price ever at the time for a work by a living artist.

Thomas William "Tom" Roberts (8 March 1856 – 14 September 1931) was an Australian artist and a key member of the Heidelberg School, also known as Australian Impressionism. After attending art schools in Melbourne, he left for Europe in 1881 to further his training, and returned home in 1885, "primed with whatever was the latest in art". He did much to promote en plein air painting and encouraged other artists to capture the national life of Australia. While he is best known for his "national narratives", among them Shearing the Rams (1890), A break away! (1891) and Bailed Up(1895), he also achieved renown as a portraitist.
Through the 1880s and 1890s Roberts worked in Victoria, in his studio at the famous studio complex of Grosvenor Chambers at 9 Collins Street, Melbourne. In 1885 he started painting and sketching excursions to outer suburbs, creating camps at Box Hill and Heidelberg, where he worked alongside McCubbin, Arthur Streeton andCharles Conder, working on representing Australia’s light, heat, space and distance.

In 1896 he married 35-year-old Elizabeth (Lillie) Williamson and they had a son, Caleb. Many of his most famous paintings come from this period. Roberts was an expert maker of picture frames, and during the period 1903–1914, when he painted relatively little, much of his income apparently came from this work. Roberts spentWorld War I in England assisting at a hospital. In Australia, he built a house at Kallista, near Melbourne. Elizabeth died in January 1928, and Roberts remarried, to Jean Boyes, in August 1928. He died in 1931 of cancer in Kallista near Melbourne. He is buried near Longford, Tasmania.

SÉRIE TV - J'ai englouti la dernière saison de Girls en une journée! Toujours un plaisir de suivre ces 4 femmes magnifiquement imparfaites essayer tant bien que mal de devenir adulte en plein coeur de New York.
Une belle saison finale, qui renforce mon attachement à cette série aussi contemporaine que féministe. Exception faite du dernier épisode qui relève carrément de la catégorie "WTF". Un presque sans faute. 😉 👭👭📽 #feedyourbrainwithgoodstuff

Greatest Master "Soup/Build A Fort/Set That On Fire.” ~ SAMO

One of Jean-Michel’s first art projects was SAMO, a graffiti collaboration with his friend and past classmate Al Diaz. The two would spray the tag of their character (which stood for “Same Old Shit”) around the streets of Manhattan. [ excerpt from anothermag.com ]

"I tried to drown my sorrows, but the bastards learned how to swim, and now I am overwhelmed by this decent and good feeling." ~ Frida Kahlo (2907 - 1954)

Frida Kahlo was a Mexican painter, who mostly painted self-portraits.
Here's a few fun facts you might not have known about Frida.
1. She had Polio as a child.
Kahlo struggled with many types of illnesses throughout her life. When she was six years old, she contracted the virus which consequently left her right leg much thinner than her left. She disguised the bottom half of her body in full long colorful skirts.
2. The artist was not able to bear children. Due to a terrible bus accident when she was 18, Kahlo suffered severe injuries, including a broken spinal column, a broken collarbone, broken ribs, a broken pelvis, 11 fractures to her right leg, and a dislocated shoulder. During the accident, an iron handrail pierced her abdomen and her uterus, causing injury that would make it impossible for her to reproduce.
3. She arrived at her first solo exhibition in an ambulance.
During the early 1950s, Kahlo was in and out of the hospital, having been diagnosed with gangrene in her right foot. In 1953, still bedridden, the artist arrived at her first solo show in Mexico in an ambulance. Her foot later had to be amputated to prevent spread of the gangrene.
4. Her home (Casa Azul) was turned into a museum after her death.
The artist was born in the home in 1907 and it had remained in her family throughout her life. Known as Caza Azul, or the Blue House, it was turned into a museum after she died. It now sees over 25,000 visitors monthly.
5. Kahlo was bisexual.
Although she was married to artist Diego Rivera, their relationship was tumultuous and they both had extramarital affairs. Kahlo had a well-known tryst with female artist Josephine Baker. Diego Rivera supposedly had an affair with Kahlo’s sister, Cristina.
6. The artist has lived in Mexico City, New York, San Francisco, and Paris. She followed Rivera to San Francisco and New York City where he traveled for work. In 1939, Kahlo moved to Paris for some time, where she became friends with Marcel Duchamp and Pablo Picasso.
