I am a self-learning artist and also an engineer, I am very much passionate about art and its history and I do all my art soulfully.
The biggest challenge in art is composing what I imagine, so I want to learn renaissance technique, anatomy, and the perspectives.
SURVIVING A FAMOUS NAME
My name was tacked on before Art Carney and that young actor made most strangers make what they think is a witty remark. For more than 20 years my name appeared over articles in newspapers in New Jersey and New York City, Now my name is on my watercolors, an effort I returned to after writing. Actually I began drawing and painting as a grammar-school kid, and continued as a cartoonist in high school and college papers. I began as a cartoonist at my first daily newspaper and switched to writing-editing when I found there was more money there.
Starting over is scary!
My name is Sharif Makhale and I’m a NYC based artist. I gave up a 25 year career as a martial arts instructor to pursue my dream of being an artist. Prior to that I hadn’t created any art for almost 15 years. After having a personal crisis.
It was art that saved my life and since I’ve been eternally grateful. Since returning to art, people took notice through social media and I’ve been blessed to be a part of some amazing group art shows here in NY and a solo show in Europe in 2014.
I am a freelance artist and do hand-drawn designs, sketches, etc.
I always look for new possibilities to learn good drawing skills and that is why I would like to take part in this art competition – to win the Drawing Academy course.
For as long as I remember, I loved to draw. In high school, I received an award for my artwork from a great Indian classical dancer and film star, Waheeda Rehman. After high school, I wished to join Sir J. J. School of Arts, Bombay, but could not pursue my love of art as I had to struggle for my livelihood by taking some other job, which continued till my retirement. After my retirement, I attended some private classes and started painting. Since then, I felt my life more meaningful and satisfying. Now I paint for my own pleasure and to satisfy my soul. Beauty appeals to me in everything I see. I fall in love with any beautiful subject/object; for, I feel, a thing of beauty is a joy for ever! And I believe, art flows from the heart.
I am an illustrator, and my job is graphic.
I am an artist and most of the hours of the day I work on art.
ART CAN TELL WHAT WORDS CAN’T SAY
I already enrolled the Old Masters Academy and I am really surprised by the professional quality of the lessons. To do good paintings however I have to learn to make good constructive drawings. As I use my art for expressing my inside world, it is important to me to have a good understanding of the human body, and how the body behaves in a certain position.
A lover of art
I love painting and I wish to go to the old places of the world to paint them.
PILAR! Artist Extraordinaire!
It all started in kindergarten. One of my pictures “ made it” to the wall of art. I knew I would be an artist one day. My mother, also Pilar Clinkscales is a fantastic painter. She has had her work in many local displays, and she use to enter all the duck stamp competitions. She won the turkey hunting stamp in Florida several years ago. I could brag about her forever.
Back to me, I’ve always enjoyed art. I found many different kinds of art.
A brief bio of Jack Adams
The art career of Jack Adams is a testimony to the survival of a right-brained person in our left-brained word! Jack inherited the gift of drawing from his Grandfather. And his parents supported the talent as a hobby, not a career. His father was in the Army and hoped for Jack to graduate from West Point. But in his senior year in High School , Jack discovered the annual competition held by Fisher Body for aspiring young car designers. He submitted a sleek, black , high-finned model… and won! General Motors advised Jack to study at the Art Center College of Design in LA. He applied there, and dutifully , he also applied to West Point…the United States Military Academy. He was accepted to both. He went to West Point. Upon graduation however, he asked for an assignment in Air Defense Artillery (the sole purpose of which was to be assigned to a Nike Missile base in Los Angeles, in order to attend Art Center at night-school). And he found his purpose in the “Grand Scheme” of things…. Design.
