Enchantingly Woven | Thirubuvanam, Thanjavur, Tamil Nadu

A wrap of glory!

The craft of silk weaving has been practised in the town of Thirubuvanam for generations, and the charm of it remains intact.
The art is well-known for its distinct patterns, which were influenced by the Chola dynasty. Thirubuvanam silk sarees are light in weight and have a variety of exquisite motifs as well as a unique folding pattern, making them a craft developed to offer you the glossy grandeur.

2/as I took this pic of us painting new fresh art over tired&worn gimmicks of an #artmarket "commodity" we were forwarding the human #aesthetic at the request of building's owner, but simultaneously &unintentionally we were devaluing stock portfolios! Hence #GANGSTALKERS began..
3/...to assemble around me in a threatening manner just after #artgallery owner #TonyTaglianetti shouted "it's not up to the building's owner what they have on their walls" and then made a call from across the street..

Luboš Plný is a Czech painter and conceptual artist, usually classified as a creator of art brut ("raw art" or "rough art"), a label created by French artist Jean Dubuffet to describe art created outside the boundaries of official culture.
Plný is fascinated by medical iconography. An expert in the mysteries of anatomy, he devotes himself – when not drawing – to all sorts of performances where he confronts the limits of pain, which he experiences as an act of purification, transforming suffering into artistic work.
He incorporates organic materials, photographs from 19th century atlases, pictures of anatomical wax models, and clippings of models from fashion magazines in his work. These images form the foundation for his graphical compositions.

The #Zapatista tour of #Ireland, a long aul’ thread (but pix and vids!) to wrap up

In 1994 indigenous peasants in the mountains of SE Mexico rose up against #neoliberal capitalism, their latest struggle in 500 years of resisting colonialism…

#LaGiraZapatistaVa #EZLN Zapatista women at La Realidad
If you need a backgrounder, here's Mick McCaughan, ex-Latin American correspondent for the Irish Times and Guardian introducing why the #Zapatistas matter:

27 years later, they hold liberated territory the size of Munster –

governing themselves from below

with a powerful #womxn’s movement

practicing #AgroEcology

and with their own culture, education system, community media...

Two reports adopted by an overwhelming majority in @EPCulture👉@MonicaSemedoLux report on the situation of #artists and the #culturalrecovery➕Mrs. Melbarde’s on Europe’s Media in the Digital Decade: An Action Plan to Support Recovery and Transformation.
4 key take-aways👇
1⃣MEPs have strong concerns against coercive buy-out contracts, urging the @EU_Commission to take concrete steps to prevent coercive practices that can hamper creators from enjoying adequate & proportionate remuneration @nnienass @TFrankowski21 @laurencefarreng @CISACNews
2⃣ @EPCulture asks @EU_Commission to assess the role and impact of streaming services (both AV and music), on creators’ remuneration and cultural diversity - including algorithms and playlists. @Ibangarciadb @Film_directors @GabrielMariya @authorsocieties @DomenecD @fred_matic

Collectors: It's not just about status or money, it's about supporting artists who have invested years into developing their craft. Artists have been overlooked for far too long, yet continue to pour into what they are passionate about. Artists make our world a much better place.
Being an art #collector, whether in #cryptoart, #nft's, traditional #art, or many other art forms - it must primarily stem from a love for beauty, skill, creativity, nature, meaning, and thinking. Great art makes us appreciate, connect, aspire, reflect, and adjust perspectives.
As collectors, we help to recognize these talents in original artwork. Collecting from underrated, undervalued, underappreciated, unknown #artists who display stunning aptitudes for creating is a joy and a privilege, as it communicates to artists that they are valued and seen.

@tari has hit a home-run with Yats based on the appeal of universal aesthetics, ease of entry into the #NFT space for #creators, and a viable model of scarcity #economics. Lastly, they are good fun!

/THREAD #🧵
UNIVERSALITY #😀
#Yats are modern hieroglyphs. Visual communication is ancient, and crosses all language barriers. The best Yats will capture human experience without being overly complex. Simplicty means mass appeal.
ARTISTS #🎨
#NFTartist will find #Yats an easy medium to work in. The 4/5 string Yats are going to yield the best return for artists on a budget bc these can be created for $4-$8, and offer more room for expression.

If you #freelance, in general, they can do what they want with your work. They own it. They can edit as they like. If there is no “no edit” or “pre-approval” clause, forget it.

This is the price you pay to play with properties like #SpiderMan, #StarWars, or #DungeonsandDragons.
Freelance #writers and #artists expecting to have input and editorial clout—to really shape an entire product from soup to nuts, to have final say over nearly anything: don’t bother freelancing.

It’s not for you.
Next up, if you’re out to create something amazing, I can almost guarantee that it only comes along in vast, company driven group project once in a blue moon, and only then randomly, because stars align or something and the people click.

My 555 #nft batch is an exception, a one time only gift and thank you to the rad community that expressed has about $100 to play with. It is not intended to be a rare collectible its my version of prints or stickers. 99% of my art has always been 1/1 🙌🎨continues in comments👇
I do believe in scarcity and all my other #nfts are 1/1 or max 5/5 . How do we keep art rare and also include everyone to have access to play and be a part of the space. I feel if each artists released 1 big batch for their comm that doesnt take away from the scarcity👇
There is enough room for most of the art to be rare and also have a category of accessible stamp logo sticker print like thank you that comm can hold and be a part of the space. Thoughts? Lets @clubhouse about it 💗🎨🙌👇

#VoicesFromKashmir is an initiative by @SFLCin to bringing you stories from Kashmir that were lost due to the #CommunicationBlockade. These voices are of students, of businessmen, of ordinary citizens effected by #InternetShutdowns.

In this series we listen to Shayan Bandey who used to be an entrepreneur but ever since the #Internet was shutdown in #JammuAndKashmir, he has been unemployed.
#VoicesFromKashmir #Kashmir
Shayan used to run digital marketing campaigns for his clients based in Jammu and Kashmir, but with #NoInternet, he has been forced to look at other alternatives and look for himself and his family.

Αυτή νομίζω είναι η αγαπημένη μου ζωγραφική 😊. Εντωμεταξυ στην αρχή σκόπευα να κάνω κάτι πιο απλό αλλα όσο προχωρούσε η ζωγραφια τόσο πιο σύνθετη μου έβγαινε 😛. Και τελικά έγινε η πιο μπελαλιδικη απ' όλες😛. #art #popart #artists #colours #sunset ImageImageImageImage

*DON'TJOINTHEM* "The more #artists support ambition to be part of the status quo, the more we support the limiting structures set by the status quo" great insight from #artist @camp_networking in response to my provocation. Image
"Organisations to make #artists regular agenda item, to get beyond who are we going to work with but how can we support #artists / include #artists in our organisational make-up beyond the programme"
