Moroccan photographer and filmmaker Achraf Baznani (Born in Marrakesh) carries on the traditions of Surrealism with his wild, imaginative, and wholly impractical imagery. Among his inventive scenarios, small human figures -often the artist himself- appear trapped within glass jars or the size of a camera lens; in other works, Baznani more or less dissects his body, as for example, in one, he cleanly removes his brain from his cranium, or in another, twists off his hand, much as if it were a light bulb. Imparted throughout such works are strong senses of humor and wonder, and as such, Baznani’s art offers a Surrealistic take on life experience in the digital age.
Sam Dougados is a french artitst living in Biarritz, France. Using a rake as his primary tool, Dougados draws at low tide huge frescos on the beach to create site specific street art in a natural public space. As land art, his is completely ephemeral and vibes with its environnement as a big zen garden.
In its second season, The Creative Lives has release a mini-documentary about the life and times of artist Cleon Peterson. TCL takes a look at Peterson’s extensive and exceptional career and interviews the artist himself as well as many important people in his development. This is what TCL had to say about the video:
“Cleon Peterson‘s cruel images of violence assault our senses, yet his goal is not to shock but to dissuade the negative world he sees unfurling around him. War, rape, distrust and dishonor are depicted in classical landscapes framed as if an 18th century oil. Raised in Seattle, Cleon’s mother, a former ballerina, pushed his talent to great lengths, encouraging Cleon to get his GED at age 14 and start attending art college. Brilliant but addicted, Cleon struggled, eventually ending up in a criminally ordered asylum, where he got clean and started to define his unique vision.”
