What does it mean to be a Master Artist? The answer is not as easy as it sounds. For starters, you’ll need to know how this esteemed position gives special distinction. The Law Insider Dictionary puts it simply: a “Master Artist means an artist who is recognized by the artist’s community and peers as an exemplary practitioner of a traditional art form.”
A Master Artist is the “black belt” of the art world. An artist’s painting might inspire, but a Master Artist’s work is sheer genius. He or she employs excellent command of art techniques and understands composition to create the ultimate masterpiece. A Master’s work of art always feels complete.
You don’t have to be a millionaire to own art by a Master. Anyone can collect art from these famous artists! You can find them right here at Seaside Art Gallery:
You’d be hard pressed to forget about this famous artist. Picasso is probably best known for his abstract cubism style, but he experimented with many different genres in his lifetime. He made so many, in fact, that his work is categorized into his own separate periods!
An expert of bold color and Neo-Expressionism, Peter Max is a modern marvel. His bright, funky paintings embody the 1960s and 1970s “Yellow Submarine” spirit into a clean composition. He has painted for six U.S. Presidents, the Olympics, and several impressive venues including the Super Bowl and the U.S. Opens.
Born in Barcelona, Spain, Joan Miró studied art at the Barcelona School of Fine Arts and Academia Galí. His work is a fascinating blend of different art movements, including Fauvism and Cubism. He produced many sculptures and abstract pieces in his lifetime. His experiments in aquatint are especially remarkable.
Not all Masters have to be born with talent. Hailing from Austria, Chaim tirelessly honed his skills in evening art classes while working in the day. The hard work paid off; he exhibited in Greenwich Village and later became a U.S. citizen. Chaim won numerous art awards, including the National Sculpture Prize from the U.S. Treasury. He founded the Chaim Gross Studio Museum, and is renowned for his legacy today.
This influential artist was one of the most important printmakers in the United States. Irving Amen began to draw at age four in New York City. His hope for the human race and his talented etchings drew a wide audience around the world.
Hailing from Russia, Marc Chagall was a Master of 20th Century fantasy art in many mediums, from lithographs to watercolors and even stained glass. Back then fantasy art was thought to come from the subconscious. Quoted from Roy McMullen’s book “The World of Marc Chagall,” Marc stated “If I create from the heart, nearly everything works; if from the head, almost nothing.”
