Master watercolor artist Alexander (Arush) Votsmush lives and works in Sevastopol, Ukraine. His work is like having an eccentric uncle who travels the world and turns up with wild stories about zebras, sailing ships, and wrestling alligators. Arush has an amazing capability of teasing out details while all around swirl wild details. There is something like magical realism in work – like the fantastical brought to life. See more of Alexander (Arush) Votsmush’s work on his Live Journal Page, Livingdesign.info, and Blogg99.

I would like to share with you the work of Lek Chan of Taipei, Taiwan. Her work is beautiful, deeply moving and also has deep meaning. I am going to reblog her post on the above artwork “Muffled” from her website:
There has been a of “speech muffling” happened here recently. A gov body openly warned public not to post any info/statement that will harm the country (in fact, not to harm the current established gov). A news program had been punished for showing a picture of our frowning prime minister.
When i was watching a cold war documentary series, i came a cross this line: “What devastating is not the act of censorship, but the product of censorship”. Self-censorship, is far more devastating than censorship itself. When the populace had underwent long period of speech suppression, they will then developed a automatic self-filtration for speech, to avoid political persecution.
There is no room for truth and criticism. Hopeless.
This is my continuing study of art that distorts, smears, or obscures the faces of its subjects. I am trying to get my head around this art – in all its forms. It seems to me to be almost an art movement – there are hundreds of artists that do this type of work exclusively. They are men and women from around the world. They are educated, self taught, professional, and hobbyist. They work in all different genres from photography to sculpture. I think ultimately my goal is to understand what this art says about our world, the culture of our world. I think that collectively this art is saying something about this moment, I think that it means something beyond simply someone smearing their fingers through the paint on a persons face. So I muddle, picking through the minutia of art, looking at different works, parsing them for meaning, comparing them and writing ridiculously ungrammatical sentences. As always if you see your art here and want me to remove it please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will take it down right away. None of this art is mine. All art is attributed, and if you click on it will take you to the spot where I found it.
