For it is in everything: Landscapes, portraits, nayiv, "nude", something uzahali fairy ... Hrandioznyy series of abstract works ... All this can not be confused with the works of other myttsiv - at least in our halaktytsi. Today his paintings are impressive art in Europe, America, Australia, it offers the best exhibit in the halls of the world and this is in contrast to past persecution and prosecution in their own country, Ukraine. About the period of his life the artist says: "Sometimes I say to the exhibitions of my work, this has never seen, and I say - if you saw this, they would not see me. For appreciated what never was. So I shook the world. There have been nine periods of creativity, "nine Marchuk and each of them something amazing.

I primarily need a surprise. Something is always running in my head, you need something new to do. When I have to sign a picture, I will send it to the world and know that the response to it will be indispensable. And the "tenth" Marchuk will be required. Ripen. About art: "For me, art - the life and revelation. Alternative exists. AND at the same time art - is hard labor. I work 365 days a year, and without that I can not. This verdict of fate, karma, sentence, doom. I do not escape. I dream relax on the beach, lying in the grass, listening as she grows, I want to look like clouds floating in the sky, I rejoice, have fun, socialize in the company, not refused to go to school to teach someone something there. And then think: but I also want it to do something yourself. Thought invincible! " In 1956 graduated from the Lviv school of arts and crafts. 1965 - Lviv Institute of arts and crafts, ceramic department.

Hey guys!I was interested in observing and opening new artists for myself!Hope you will enjoy it too! 15 Damien Hirst One of the famous artists in the field of contemporary art is Damien Hirst. He is a known entrepreneur, art collector and artist. He is considered to be the most prominent member of the Young British Artists, a known group of visual artists in United Kingdom. Damien Hirst is also considered to be the richest living artist in United Kingdom and has an estimated wealth of £215 million in 2010. Damien Hirst was born in Bristol and grew up to be a troubled child and have been involved in shoplifting, which led him to be arrested twice. Although a troubled child, he has shown interests in drawing and arts in a young age. Damien Hirst’s mother supported his desire and interests ine arts. 14 Robert Combas The artist Robert Combas Born May 25 1957, Sète (Lyon), France. Lives and works in Paris, . Style and technique of the artist: Figuration-Libre-Graffiti, Painting, 13Takashi Murakami Born in Tokyo in 1962, Murakami is one of the most influential and acclaimed artists to have emerged from Asia in the late twentieth century, creating a wide-ranging body of work that consciously bridges fine art, design, animation, fashion, and popular culture. He received a Ph.D. from the Tokyo National University of Fine Arts and Music, where he was trained in the school of traditional Japanese painting known as Nihonga, a nineteenth-century mixture of Western and Eastern styles… 12 Gerhard Richter The artist Gerhard Richter Born Febr 9 1932, Dresden, Germany. Lives and works in Cologne, . “Impressions: Clean and clear works, empty faces, melancholy of fading memories and passing emotions, holiday snaps, newspaper cuttings, weight of meanings, contemplation, history, ideology, war, beauty in terror, conceptualism, irony, scepticism, nostalgia, self-reproduction, postmodern, photorealism and abstraction, near monochrome, gray, after abstract-expressionism, uniform, strategy…” © the-artists.org 11 Francis Bacon For nearly 50 years, until his death in 1992 at 82, Bacon worked the fault lines dividing abstraction and representation and sometimes photography, where many contemporary painters from subsequent generations have staked claims of one kind or another… 10 Christian Boltanski One of Boltanski’s favorite themes is his own life story, both actual and reinvented, which he evokes through startling collections of photographs and objects. In other pieces, he assembles seemingly mundane elements to address some of the most fundamental and disturbing contradictions of twentieth-century life. 9 Yan Pei-Ming His giant portraits of Mao, Bruce Lee, the Pope, his own father and even children from the slums of South Africa, are created using big brush strokes and a unique style that renders the works both messy and, from a distance, evocative and emotional portraits of his subjects... 8 Lucian Freud “My work is purely autobiographical,...It is about myself and my surroundings. I work from people that interest me and that I care about, in rooms that I know… When I look at a body it gives me choice of what to put in a painting, what will suit me and what won’t. There is a distinction between fact and truth. Truth has an element of revelation about it. If something is true, it does more than strike one as merely being so.” 7 Miquel Barcelo Miquel Barcelo extends the primitivism of Art Brut into a dialogue with prehistoric art. This beautifully printed catalogue documents an exhibition of sculptures and works on paper held at three venues in Avignon—the Palais de Papes, the Musée du Petit Palais and the Collection Lambert—in which Barceló responded to the Quattrocento and Gothic works held in their collections. 6 Fabrice Hybert French artist Fabrice Hybert (b.1961) specializes in tapping into what he has called ‘the enormous reservoir of the possible’. His aim is to examine the way we communicate, and to mimic the endless linkages between ideas. Hybert’s art ranges from drawings, paintings and objects to installations, performances, traveling public artworks and videos… 5 Jeff Koons The major contemporary artist-provocateur Jeff Koons is one of the most well-known and intriguing artists of the 20th century. His works, with their seductive surfaces and flawless execution, transform everyday objects and fantasies into high art… 4 Yoshitomo Nara The artwork of Yoshitomo Nara is deceptively simple. Peopled with entities that call to mind toddlers or infant animals with their balloon heads, persimmon pit-eyes, and pinprick noses, each work is a peek into a world that seems eerily familiar… 3 Martin Kippenberger “People come along [in twenty years or so] and can say what the work and the artist were really all about. What people will say about me then—or maybe not say—will be the only thing that finally counts. Whether or not I contributed to spreading a good mood. What I’m working on is for people to be able to say that Kippenberger had this really good mood”. 2 Chuck Close His portrait subjects were often other painters such as Francesco Clemente and Lucas Samaras, and his work was shown in the prestigious Pace Gallery in New York City. Then catastrophe struck: Close suffered a collapsed spinal artery, which ultimately left him paralyzed and permanently wheelchair-bound. For weeks, many in the art world thought he might be dead. Certainly, the obituary of his painting career was quickly written. But a scant two years later, the indomitable Close reemerged, his canvasses as large as ever, the heretofore objective distance between him and his subjects foreshortened to make room for a new depth of emotion in the work. 1 Banksy Banksy is the pseudonym of an English graffiti artist, painter, film director, and political activist. Because he was primarily known for his graffiti, his works can mostly be viewed on the streets, bridges, and walls of London, and the rest of the world. Banksy is a freehand artist who grew into prominence in 1990. In 1994, he ended up working in the underground scene. He started selling his artworks commercially when he met Steve Lazarides, a photographer, nominated himself as his agent.

Дворец Роганов

Дворец Роганов находится в центре Страсбурга рядом с кафедральным собором. Этот дворец был построен в 18 веке (строительство велось с 1728 года по 1744 год) для князя-епископа Армана-Гастона де Роган-Субиз. Это один из самых ярких представителей дома Роганов: внебрачный сын Людовика XIV («короля-солнца»), тонкий политик, он был покровителем наук и искусств и главой ордена Святого Духа – наиболее престижного рыцарского ордена во Франции старого режима. Дворец в неоклассическом стиле, вошедшем в моду в Страсбурге в начале 18 века, спроектировал французский архитектор Робер де Кот, работавший ранее над версальским замком и хором собора Парижской Богоматери. В 1704 году Арман-Гастон де Роган приобрел несколько домов поблизости от кафедрального собора и через какое-то время приказал снести старые здания, чтобы рядом с собором построить свою резиденцию, которая в течение 18 века оставалась резиденцией еще трех членов семьи Роганов. Планировка дворца достаточно характерна для зданий эпохи классицизма. Перед дворцом располагается парадный двор, т.н. почетный двор (иногда в русском языке употребляется и термин курдонёр), обрамленный административными флигелями, вход в который лежит через триумфальную арку. На триумфальной арке находятся скульптурные изображения Милосердия и Религии. Главное здание имеет два этажа, второй этаж отведен для прислуги, в западном крыле дворца располагается обширная библиотека. Главный фасад выдержан в достаточно строгом стиле и украшен только четырьмя массивными колоннами, поддерживающими треугольный фронтон. Поверхность фасада, обращенного к внутреннему двору, оживлена рядом пилястр. Сейчас во дворце находится несколько музеев: музей декоративно-прикладного искусства, в котором располагается коллекция керамики и мебели, музей художественных искусств, где можно ознакомиться с богатой коллекцией живописи и археологический музей.
