Undiscovered Weekly: Traditional

Fri Jan 18, 2013, 5:58 AM

Welcome to Undiscovered Weekly for Traditional Art.
Undiscovered Weekly is committed to spotlighting exceptional artists who have low page views, and/or few watchers, and have been a deviant for three years or less.
Information for this feature has been collected and presented by Astrikos.

Welcome to the second edition of Undiscovered Weekly!
This series aims to direct a spotlight on some of the undiscovered talent across various galleries here on deviantART.
Each week we will cycle through the various galleries, at the end of the article, you can find the listings of who features which gallery. 
If you know of anyone who is undiscovered, please note the specific article writer in which the deviant's gallery falls under. Please do not note the group.


Autumn Leaves by Midnight-Sun-Art

:bulletblue:Why did you start creating art?

Creating art has always been a part of my life. I can’t remember the  first time I drew or created something, but as long as I can remember I  have done it. It’s like an urge or a longing; I feel the need to do it.  When creating personal art it is my way of coping with or expressing my  feelings. Also some of my happiest moments are when other people  appreciate my creations, I feel that my art serves in best purpose then

When the sun sets in the sea by Midnight-Sun-Art

:bulletblue:What is your favorite piece of art you have created?

I have created art for so many years and have worked with so many  different media, so there are many pieces that hold a great place in my  heart. But my oilpainting “philosophy” is one of few art pieces I deem  only “mine”, and this one I don’t think I will ever manage to part with  for any price. The idea for this painting came to life during philosophy  class. The lecturer was talking about the good life, and that humans  are at peace and happy when they do what they are meant to do, and I  started doodling. I took home the sketch and this is the result. It is  really portraying imagination; how a horse porcelain doll can come to  life (thats why one might think the horses proportion is a bit off, but  it really isn’t, because the model was actually a horse porcelain doll  with similar features, and not a real life horse.)

:bulletblue:Do any of your works have a special meaning behind it? Which ones?

Most of my art is inspired by something. I have always loved animals and  they are one of the biggest sources of inspiration. I love the idea of  using art to spread awareness, so I do many works portraying endangered  species. Like the tiger for example, one of my favorites. A piece of art  with a personal meaning behind it is “kittakima”. My ferret meant a lot  to me, and when he passed away after a long and hard illness, painting  this watercolor was my way of coping with loosing him.

:bulletblue:Why did you start creating art?

Hi. Thank you for showing an interest in me and my art.
I've been  creating art for as long as I can remember. I never had the chance to  attend a tertiary institution, but nothing can stop passion. I feel  alive when I paint and make things. I have loved and continue to love  the journey of finding my language. Its where I feel really me.

:bulletblue: What is your favorite piece of art you have created?
My  favorite and best piece of art is always the one I'm busy with,   whether or not it says what I want it to. I only find out when I'm  
finished.Alien by SamanthaJordaan

:bulletblue: Do any of your works have a special meaning behind it? Which ones?
Most of my works have a special meaning behind them, and reflect what I  am experiencing in my life at the time. Others I do just to relax and  have fun. Then there are commissions that have a special meaning for the  person who requested them. I always learn something from each work.Dandelions by SamanthaJordaan
Samantha's gallery is full of wonderful still life paintings. Her style is  detailed, emotive, and colorful. She knows how to compose something  wonderful for the eye.

Exile morning by N8grafica
:bulletblue: Why did you start creating art?

I started creating art at a young age when I discovered I had some  drawing ability. My brother and my cousin, who has since passed, were  major sources of inspiration. Since then my mandate has been to create  art as a means of honing my voice. I believe my voice will service a  message that's worth sharing.

:bulletblue:What is your favorite piece of art you have created?
My favorite piece is the Conduit. It best represents a philosophy and a 'way' that I try to attain to
weightlessness by N8grafica

:bulletblue:Do any of your works have a special meaning behind it? Which ones?

Most of my traditional paintings have allegorical or symbolic  meaning. The Conduit, Removing the thorn, Still standing, Light of  Truth, and a new one, Murder at Eventide, all have narratives, and are  featured on my home page.

:bulletblue: Why did you start creating art?

I have no idea why I started. I cannot remember a time when I didn't  draw. Though while I was working I did very little art. Now I am lucky  because I have all the time I need to create. Back to the question. Why?  Like Lady Gaga would say I was born that way.
