PROPS-TO-THE-PHOTOGRAPHER

Here we go again..................

That MTV interview with the photographer was a well written piece of propaganda for “Bare with me”, basically saying that love is love, and it is beautiful in all forms. The stuff about Lauren and Lucy was all propaganda to prop up the narrative.

The photographer and the wardrobe lady were only saying what they were advised to say. LIES! (though the wardrobe lady decided to fuck the narrative a bit with the “sisterly and maternal connection”) Management did the same thing with DWTS. Val was advised to lie about when and where he had his first meet up with Normani for DWTS. They had been rehearsing for days before that Houston Rodeo, yet they wanted to push the narrative to the general public that the girls were in on the surprise, and helped introduce Mani to her dance partner. Why? To show how much they support her decision to do her own thing.

My point is, they (management) have no problem getting outside forces, other than the girls, to help sell their narrative. The ladies who did that photo-shoot with Lauren and Lucy are no different. Why have the photographer say what she said? They needed someone, other than Lauren or Lucy, to confirm that Laucy was real, to prove that Camren wasn’t. That one interview killed three birds with one stone. It confirmed Laucy, destroyed Camren, then destroyed Laucy, all at the same damn time. Brilliant actually.

In 1976 Georgia O’Keeffe said, “My paintings sometimes grow by pieces from what is around.” Ram’s Head, White Hollyhock—Hills juxtaposes the view from her New Mexico home Ghost Ranch, a flower from her garden, and one of many animal skulls she collected on her walks in the desert.

After O’Keeffe moved permanently to the Southwest in 1948, she displayed animal bones and skulls in her two New Mexico homes, alongside her collections of weathered tree branches and riverbed stones. The bones also served as favorite props in many photographic portraits that were taken of her in her later decades.

O’Keeffe occasionally hung an animal skull directly on a wall, giving it the status of a painting or a religious icon. To her, these bones embodied the harsh beauty of the desert surrounding her home, blurring the lines between indoor and outdoor, living and inanimate. Most of all, their spare, organic forms complemented the unified aesthetic of her art and her carefully curated life.

#art #street Art #arte #arte callejero #bansky Banksy is a pseudonymous United Kingdom-based graffiti artist, political activist, film director, and painter.

His satirical street art and subversive epigrams combine dark humour with graffiti executed in a distinctive stencilling technique. Such artistic works of political and social commentary have been featured on streets, walls, and bridges of cities throughout the world.

Banksy’s work was made up of the Bristol underground scene which involved collaborations between artists and musicians. According to author and graphic designer Tristan Manco and the book Home Sweet Home, Banksy “was born in 1974 and raised in Bristol, England. The son of a photocopier technician, he trained as a butcher, but became involved in graffiti during the great Bristol aerosol boom of the late 1980s." Observers have noted that his style is similar to Blek le Rat, who began to work with stencils in 1981 in Paris. Banksy says, however, that he was inspired by "3D”, a graffiti artist who later became a founding member of Massive Attack.

Known for his contempt for the government in labelling graffiti as vandalism, Banksy displays his art on publicly visible surfaces such as walls, even going as far as to build physical prop pieces. Banksy does not sell photographs or reproductions of his street graffiti, however, art auctioneers have been known to attempt to sell his street art on location and leave the problem of its removal in the hands of the winning bidder. Banksy’s first film,Exit Through the Gift Shop, billed as “the world’s first street art disaster movie”, made its debut at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival. The film was released in the UK on 5 March 2010. In January 2011, he was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Documentary for the film.

Banksy es el seudónimo de un prolífico artista del street art británico. Se cree que nació en Yate, localidad cercana a Bristol, en 1974, pero los datos acerca de su identidad son inciertos y se desconocen detalles de su biografía. Según Tristan Manco, Banksy “nació en 1974 y creció en Bristol, Inglaterra. Hijo de un técnico de fotocopiadoras, se formó como carnicero pero se vio implicado en el graffiti durante el boom del aerosol en Bristol de finales de la década de 1980”. Su trabajo, en su gran mayoría piezas satíricas sobre políticacultura popmoralidad y etnias, combina escritura con graffiti con el uso de estarcidos con plantilla (conocidos generalmente como stencils, del inglés). Su arte urbano combina escritura con una técnica de estarcido muy distintiva, similar a Blek le Rat, quien empezó a trabajar con estarcidos en 1981 en París; y miembros de la banda de anarco-punk Crass, que mantuvieron una campaña en las instalaciones del metro de Londres a finales de la década de los setenta del siglo XX e inicios de los ochenta. Banksy reconoció la influencia de Blek diciendo “cada vez que creo que he pintado algo ligeramente original, me doy cuenta de que Blek le Rat lo hizo mejor, sólo que veinte años antes." Sus obras se han hecho populares al ser visibles en varias ciudades del mundo, especialmente en Londres.
