Ivan's greatest passion is art, because "it allows the artist to create the impossible" Thus, he continues to create a world of possibilities. Each of Ivan's work, has a unique signature of eyevan. The eye represents the the concept of "beauty is in the eye of the beholder", where each individual has a different perception of beauty. "I hope my paintings have opened your eyes and change your look on life..." says Ivan.
"Owning a piece of art is beyond the physical canvas itself, but owning a piece of time."

A glimpse into Baroque Art
Baroque is an art movement from the 17th century, that resulted from the religious wars of the Protestant Reformation and the Catholic Counter Reformation. Religious faith reached an emotional height and the intense feeling, which inspired both faiths, produced a rich expression in art.
The term baroque implies a certain roughness, and the stormy paintings and dramatic music of the Baroque period often possessed the rugged torment of emotion. The French used the word "Baroque" to mean "a painting in which the rules of proportion are not observed and everything is represented according to the artist's whim." In the 17th century, art was naturalistic rather than ideal, and emotional rather than rational-art of movement, vitality, and brilliant color. Subjects could be chosen from daily life, as well as antiquity and the Bible, and presented to

Surrealism on DeviantArtA small introduction:
Surrealism was an artistic movement, founded in Paris 1924 by André Breton. Dedicated to expressing the imagination as revealed in dreams – it's when artists create dreamlike paintings filled with familiar objects that have been changed in a weird way that you would not see in reality.

FriedDay Features #8: :devsylwiatelari:+FoodHello guys! This Friday I'm going to interview a very inspiring person, She's called Sylwia and she's also a fellow traditional art CV on DeviantART. I honestly think she's too awesome that I decided to interview her in order to deliver an idea of how amazing she is. Also, I'm featuring some awesome culinary and food photography deviations. I hope you love them, spread some love and get fat.
Who are you? And what do you do?
I'm Telari. I'm a Time Lady and I'm 903 years ol... oh, wait. I'm Telari, I'm human and a little bit younger than 903, officially. I'm an illustrator and a writer and I write about my illustrations, too. I'm bored most of the time, also when drawing or writing.
If you could say something too important to others who are reading, what would you tell?

PE: Daily Deviations - The Myth and the LegendDaily Deviations, or DDs . . . for some deviants, receiving one is the epitome of awesomesauce in the deviantART world. For others, they are a nice way to show off the work of lesser-known artists. Still others treat them as a special way to bring attention to great art that exemplifies works being done by a particular gallery or community.
Perhaps because there are so many different ways of conceptualizing DDs, there are also many myths and misconceptions. I would like to address some of those myths by responding to the ones most frequently heard. Please note that these opinions are mine and reflect my experiences with the photomanipulation community, but perhaps they will be informative nevertheless.
Myth 1: DDs should always be perfect.
To many of us, the ideal Daily Deviation goes to an artist with amazing talent whose work draws you in and makes you think, "Wow, everyone needs to see this!" A DD should move you, inspire you, and provoke you to think, b

1. Miscellaneous vs Other
Over the past few months, we've been diligently working on cleaning up the category tree of old and unused categories. While most of this will go unnoticed by the community, what you will notice is the change from "Miscellaneous" galleries to "Other". The reason for this change is simple. The concept of Miscellaneous leads one to believe that it's a junk drawer category for everything under the sun when the intention was to be an "Other" category for deviations that don't fit well in other sub-categories of the tree. We're also working on u

Once upon a time, I was a volunteer, and speaking from experience, it can be a both blessing and a curse.
I believe that many current and former volunteers will agree with that sentiment and I feel it's important to explain a bit about why I believe this to be true.
Maybe you're not aware of the variety of ways people join the volunteer team. As per FAQ #85: Can I be a volunteer on deviantART? many people send in an application to express their interest in joining the team and I go through those applications and s
December 2012 Traditional UpdatesTraditionalists
Traditionalists is a new group aimed at giving the traditional art community their own unique voice by giving the traditionalists a place to gather, organize, and inform others with the help and guidance of the traditional Community Volunteer team. The idea behind this project was to open the channels of communication between the traditional community and the traditional CVs so that we can all work together and develop a main hub for all things traditional. If you haven't joined this group yet, we'd like to encourage you to do so.
