Beksinski (1929-2005)

“I wish to paint in such a manner as if I were photographing dreams” – Zdzislaw Beksinski Beksinski was a Polish painter, photographer and sculptor. He studied architecture in Kraków and had no formal training as an artist. He specializes in the field of magic realism and dystopian surrealism. He painted in a baroque and a gothic manner with his trademark precision. The first period of his work incorporates expressionistic colors with a strong style of utopian realism and a surreal architecture. The second period presents more abstract style. An exhibition in Warsaw in 1964 was his first major success – all the paintings were sold. Soon he became a leading figure in the contemporary Polish art. From the late […]

Corte no valor das bolsas de estudo

Valor dos apoios será equivalente ao recebido pelos alunos de licenciatura a partir do próximo ano lectivo. Os estudantes do ensino superior com deficiência que frequentam mestrado ou doutoramento vão ter cortes nas bolsas de estudo no próximo ano lectivo e passam a receber o mesmo valor das licenciaturas, denunciou hoje a Federação Académica do Porto. “Até ao ano passado [2018], independentemente do ciclo de estudos que frequentassem, os estudantes com incapacidade igual ou até 60% recebiam uma bolsa de estudo pelo menos equivalente ao valor da sua propina, independentemente do ciclo de estudos que estivessem a frequentar, ou seja, licenciatura, mestrado ou doutoramento”, mas com a nova lei vão receber o apenas 872 euros, o valor da propina máxima […]

Agustín Ibarrola Goikoetxea

Agustín Ibarrola Goikoetxea is a basque painter and sculptor. He began his relationship with painting in a self-taught way (at age 16 he made his first exhibition) and in 1948 the Council of Biscay granted him a scholarship, so he could move to Madrid to continue his studies in the workshop of Daniel Vázquez Díaz, until 1955. With him he made his first steps into Cubism. In 1950 he met another artist who had great influence on his production and his artistic mentality, the Basque sculptor Jorge Oteiza; with him he was introduced to the division and analysis of the space characteristic from constructivism. He also learned from Oteiza the mentality of joint artistic creation, where numerous artists and different […]

Friedensreich Hundertwasser

If you have already visited Vienna, I’m sure you have seen some colorful buildings in weird shapes.   All these art works were done by one of my favourite Austrian painters: Friedensreich Hundertwasser Regentag Dunkelbunt. His name tells us already a lot about him, it’s maybe even more exotic than his style of art. He was born as Friedrich Stowasser but changed it in 1949 and added some words. “Hundertwasser” is because of a Slavic word, “Regentag” means rainy day and “Dunkelbunt” a colorful dark. Hundertwasser was born on the 15 of December 1928 in Vienna and he spent the first period of his life there. During 1943, about 69 of his Jewish relations – on the side of his […]

A nossa galáxia não é plana

Todas as noites, um grupo de cientistas polacos monitoriza a luminosidade de milhares de milhões de estrelas da Via Láctea. Há umas especiais: chamam-se cefeidas, são as mais brilhantes e ajudam no cálculo de distâncias — ao estudar mais de 2400 delas, os cientistas perceberam que a nossa galáxia não é tão plana como se pensava. Afinal, a nossa galáxia não tem a forma de um disco plano, mas sim de um disco com as pontas “distorcidas” numa espécie de “S” deitado. É esta a conclusão de um estudo feito por um conjunto de cientistas polacos publicado nesta sexta-feira na revista científica Science e que corresponde ao mapa 3D da Via Láctea com mais detalhe e precisão feito até hoje.

Francis Bacon

Francis Bacon in my opinion is one of the greatest painters ever to put brush to canvas. His work would completely shock, scare and amaze those who would gaze upon it. His work would be etched upon the British consciousness after the Second World War. Coming out of the horrific and devastating war, Bacon’s paintings would reflect not only his consciousness but he would tap into the dark and unnerving subconscious of the people. He was an Englishman who was brought up in Ireland during in his formative years. His childhood was a very tough and harrowing one,  he suffered from severe asthma and that meant he was a recluse and very shy. Additionally, growing up with a strict protestant […]

Dos CTESP às licenciaturas

Quase dois terços dos alunos que entram nas formações de dois anos prosseguem estudos, mas estas tinham sido pensadas como “via rápida” de acesso ao mercado de trabalho. Os cursos técnicos superiores profissionais (Ctesp) estão a tornar-se numa via de acesso alternativa às licenciaturas. Estas formações de dois anos foram criadas para serem uma “via rápida” para colocar pessoas com formação superior no mercado de trabalho, mas quase dois terços dos diplomados está a continuar os seus estudos. Os dados recolhidos junto das instituições de ensino superior mostram que 65% das pessoas que concluíram um Ctesp em 2016/17 inscreveu-se numa licenciatura no ano seguinte. A realidade é diferente de instituição para instituição. Por exemplo, todos os diplomados da Escola Superior […]

Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec

Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec was born in 1864 near Toulouse (Albi) in the South of France. He was from an aristocratic family. As he was very young, it appeared that Toulouse was suffering from a congenital illness due to his parents being closely related genetically. In such a wealthy family it was very common to marry between first cousins in order to protect the patrimony. This illness known as Pycnodysostosis (nowadays commonly called Toulouse-Lautrec syndrome) weakened his bones. Because of two serious horse-riding accidents, his legs stopped growing, letting him for the rest of his life with the legs of a child. Unable to pursue his original equestrian passion, he started to take art lessons. At the time of his arrival […]

The italian Genius

Leonardo da Vinci is one of the main reasons why I am proud of being Italian. He was a world-class artist due to his predisposition for arts and sciences and for the results achieved in both artistic and scientific fields thanks to his ingenuity and talent. He was borned in 1452 and he started his career in a famous artistic Emporium in Florence where he could train his natural skills in painting activities and in sculpturing. His talent was rapidly recognised by the noble and powerful family of Medici, which attract the artist to his court and start commissioning some of his paintings. After that period, Leonardo was sent to Milan where he discovered a stimulating context that allowed him […]

Head in the clouds

Today you’ll learn about René Magritte, the famous Flemish surrealistic painter.  Because there are already numerous biographies out there and Google provides us so kindly with quite a complete overview in his life and oeuvre, I’ll try to approach him from a different angle. Even for the people who aren’t really actively roaming in the art scene, the image of a pipe with the description ‘ceci n’est pas une pipe’ (French for ‘this is not a pipe) must ring a bell. Or perhaps you have seen the applefaced guy with his bowler hat around? These frequently used images belong to the common visual knowledge, thanks to the many channels they’ve been exposed through. It could be you’ve been hiding from […]

Zdzisław Beksińsk
