37 Artists Featuring their art works for 2 days in 1 place!

 

On September 29th and 30th, I will be among the 37 local artists of North York Visual
Artists 12th annual Tour and Sale, displaying my paintings. The event is open to the public and admission is free.

5 Artists will be showing their art works in their home studios and 32 in Toronto Botanical Garden (Edwards Gardens) located at 777 Lawrence Ave. east. Among these 5 artists at their home studios is my dear friend Nahid Marandi who’s studio is located @ 65 Banbury Rd. (home studio C on the map below).

That is why it’s called ‘Tour’ since you can take a tour in North York from Lawrence Ave. to Finch Ave. and Yonge Street to Don Mills Road.

From paintings (oil, acrylic, mixed media, watercolor, encaustic & resin) to photography, fused glass and pottery will be on sale. Don’t miss it If you are in town ;) trust me, it will be colourful :)

Cheers! ;)

Love is in the air – Spring is here – A new year is unfolding!

Spring: Another beginning of the earth and the celebration of “Nowrouz” (New Day) the Persian new year.

Let’s welcome it with open arms and celebrate it with unconditional Love, like the love that Nature gives us.

Let’s cherish each moment that is unfolding before us, and forget about the challenges we had in the past.

Let’s give with Joy and accept with our eyes wide open what is revealed to us.

Let’s open our heart to this joyful event of nature so we can receive the magic of its gift.

Let’s begin a new chapter with all its ups and downs, because without the fall there won’t be any rise.

Let’s forgive and love, even those souls who hurt us the most, because love can conquer all.

Let’s accept that mistakes are for human beings and believe we are all the same.

Let’s welcome the spring, as it always comes after the winter.

 Happy Nowrouz & Peace for our planet!

Do you communicate?

For me, communication is one of the most important aspect of life. Without it, we won’t be able to move forward, can’t share or be involved, can’t love and be loved, therefore we can’t grow in life.

There are different ways of communication.  Some people talk, some write, some listen, some act and some create … in silence …

What you see in a piece of art is not just colors, pigments, canvas, design and shapes. These are just materials that an artist communicates love, hate, fear, happiness, sadness, emotions, and feelings with its viewer.

When a piece of art connects with you, it’s when you translate it into your thoughts. This brings out what you are, how you feel and how you connect with people. This is when you love an artwork so much that you want to have it in your home to not only give you everyday inspiration but also to take you with people around you to another level of communication.

An empty room without artwork in my opinion shows the lack of communication within yourself and therefore with others. It shows a sort of emptiness and absence.

For me, communicating through artwork is easier than using words. It seams that my thoughts are not coming out right when I put them in words. I think of one thing and it comes out of my mouth completely something different. That is why I try to communicate through my paintings. This is my way of communication.

“You use a glass mirror to see your face; you use works of art to see your soul” - George Bernard Shaw -  

What is your way of communication?
