Love Is In The Air: Celebrating What Brings Us Together

Love is a deep bond between people, filled with care, affection, and understanding. It’s a feeling that brings joy, comfort, and a sense of belonging. Love motivates people to support, cherish, and prioritize each other’s well-being above all else. In honor of Love, we have curated a special collection of artworks showcasing this special bond.

Artwork by Craig Alan: Love Around the Corner, Everyone, All You Need Is..., Love High

Craig Alan knows All You Need Is Love

Craig Alan celebrates the bonds between people in his Populus series. His compositions reflect the goal of expressing the notion that “we need to work together to accomplish larger goals. We can’t think the individual is more important than the whole.” To illustrate, Alan’s unique “Populus” characters interact with each other, coming together to create larger compositions.

Alan pulls inspiration from significant human events and pop culture. Many of his pieces carry a theme of Love and World Peace. Works like All You Need Is…inspired by the Beatles song “All You Need is Love”, and his Love Around the Corner and Everyone, inspired by Robert Indiana‘s famous LOVE sculpture.

Jurgen Gorg Vivaldi Seasons etchings: Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter

Jurgen Gorg illustrates the Seasons of Love

Jurgen Gorg’s Vivaldi Seasons etchings illustrates a story of a life of love. Starting in Spring, a connection sparks between the two subjects. As they hold each other in a loving embrace, music plays as the love brings on the warm colors. Moving into Summer, their love blooms. You can see the colors are warm and the red surrounding the couple illustrates the fire of their young passion. In Autumn, the lovers still have the spark between them; it may not be as bright as the summer, but the fire is deep like burning coals. Finally, Winter illustrates the bittersweetness of a love lost. We see the lone figure watching a fallen rose, still red among the cold landscape, reminiscing a life of love represented in the ghost-like figures embracing in the background.

Dr. Seuss artwork: Antlered Animal Adoring Small Pink Tufted Beast, Cat Carnival in West Venice, Elephant Presenting A Flower to A Bird, I Wonder Where My Emma Is Tonight

Dr. Seuss’ Quirky Love Stories

You may not know that Ted “Dr. Seuss” Geisel was not only an author of beloved children’s books, he was an incredible artist that created a variety of paintings, using his own “Seussian” style. This collection of “Secret Art” includes a variety of themes, including our favorite – Love!

Theodor Seuss Geisel, known to his family and friends as “Ted,” was a romantic in many ways, often crafting paintings and drawings that tap into our ongoing quest and desire for romance. In I Wonder Where My Emma is Tonight, a wistful stag allows a pair of woodpeckers to safely court atop his antlers. There is a sense of pride in providing such sanctuary for these lovebirds, although one can’t help but sense a longing for the stag’s own sweetheart, perhaps a doe named Emma?

Other pieces that illustrate Dr. Seuss’ romantic side are Cat Carnival in West Venice, where you see two fancifully dapper cats stealing away for some privacy, or Antlered Animal Adoring Pink-Tufted Small Beast where a stag is smitten with a fluffy beast and trying to get her attention.

We Would LOVE to help you find that perfect piece of art!

Craig Alan: Populus

Posted on: July 31st, 2023 by Art Leaders No Comments

Craig Alan: Populus Exhibition at Art Leaders Gallery August 2023

Featured Artist Exhibition: Craig Alan

Art Leaders Gallery is pleased to feature works by American artist Craig Alan. Focusing on his signature “Populus” imagery, this exhibition explores the relationship of the individual versus the whole. In today’s social climate, Alan’s Populus is an important reminder of how it takes all kinds to create a world.

Exhibition is on view at Art Leaders Gallery from August 1 to 31st, 2023.
Published August 1, 2023

Populus was created as visual social commentary. As an experiment, Alan stood on his mother’s 6th story balcony snapping photos of the populated beach below. Later realizing how a small wedding party formed the shape of an eye, the painter began considering the possibilities.

Current events have continuously inspired Alan’s Populus series. From notable world events to Pop-culture icons, the painter challenges himself to illustrate what the masses relate to. As a result, his compositions reflect the goal of expressing “we need to work together to accomplish larger goals. We can’t think the individual is more important than the whole.” As the audience moves closer to his works, the overall shape dissolves into the smaller figures – further emphasizing that everyone is in this world together.

Art Leaders Gallery has a large collection of Limited Edition and Mixed Media pieces for sale. We encourage you to visit the gallery or browse his available works on our website here.

May Florals: Floral Art

Art That Speak Universal Language, Lasts a Lifetime

Banner - May '23 Floral Blog

Since humans have inhabited this planet, the beauty of nature has immersed their lives. In nature, flowers have one simple purpose – reproduction. And in essence, the reproduction of beauty and life itself. Much like the reproduction of life and beauty is where we also find the reproduction and perpetual replication of floral art. The use of flowers for adornment, decoration, and artistic representation has played an integral part in the traditions, cultures, and connections of humanity over the centuries. Flowers enhance one’s feeling and impression. They connect people to the simplicity and sensitivity of nature. They drive emotion and passion. Evoke sadness and remembrance.

Floral design or floral arrangement is the skill of using plant materials or flowers to create eye-catching and harmonious composition, along with choosing whichever medium an artist may see fit. This aura of refined floristry can be traced all the way back to ancient Egyptian culture. This origination of artistic floristry has played a significant role in the interactions and relationships amongst humans over the course of history.

Page through the chapters of time and centuries past and you’ll find that flowers in contemporary art have retained the same symbolic value of life and beauty since the beginning of time. Few things carry such timeless symbolism and connection that flowers and artistic floristry deliver. A universal language for all and a powerful way to connect with people. A language of love, emotion, beauty, sadness and celebration that universally speaks to all. Flowers and floral art evoke such emotions within us. Love, passion, desire, innocence, joy, sadness or even death. They can represent a multitude of emotions and feelings. Likewise, it is a transferable and giftable language that can be spoken through canvas and florals mediums. Furthermore, a timeless one at that.

In conclusion, flowers are not just pretty decorations or gifts, but powerful sources of emotion and beauty. They have the ability to transform our lives, enhance our emotions, and connect us with each other and with nature. Whether as a depicted as a simple bouquet or a complex floral arrangement, flowers and floral art stand as a testament to the integrity and beauty of the natural world, and a reminder to appreciate and cherish the wonders that surround and connect us all.

Pop Art: Popular ‘Art for the People’

Posted on: April 1st, 2023 by Art Leaders No Comments

Pop Art: Popular ‘Art for the People’

Pop Art celebration for month of April: 1st -31st. Featuring artists: Isabelle Scheltjens, Srinjoy Gangopadhyay, The Bisaillon Brothers, Craig Alan, Pietro Adamo, Aniczar Marin

An abbreviation of Popular Art, Pop Art is an art movement that originated in 1950s Britain and soon came to flourish in America in the 1960s. Drawing inspiration from popular appeal and mass media, Pop Art uses recognizable imagery that presented a new-age challenge to the once modest traditions of fine art. Likewise, challenging the culture and dominant traditional views of what art should be.

Bridging the gap between the exclusivity and classical art, the Pop Art movement made art accessible and connectible to the masses, influencing an entire new wave of artistry and expressionism. Paving the way, early 1950s British Pop Art drew heavy inspiration from an outsider’s perspective on western culture and post-war Americana. While early 1960s American Pop Art was inspired by everyday imagery and culture within American society.

Richard Hamilton, Roy Lichtenstein, David Hockney, and Andy Warhol are traditionally viewed as the originators of Popular Art – Pop Art. Richard Hamilton is often labelled as founding father of British Pop Art. And in 1957 he defined the outlining characteristics of Pop Art as follows:

            “Pop Art is: Popular (designed for a mass audience), Transient (short-term solution), Expendable (easily forgotten), Low cost, Mass produced, Young (aimed at youth), Witty, Sexy, Gimmicky, Glamorous, Big business”

Join us as we celebrate these iconic ‘characteristics’ in our currently featured in-house artists, highlighting these bold and vibrant colorways of popular imagery and satire that is Pop Art.

Isabelle Scheltjens

In the tradition of Pop artists, Isabelle Scheltjen’s favorite subjects are modern-day celebrities. Using her unique glass-fusing technique, she melts together different colors, textures, and sizes of glass, which she organizes into bold, vibrant and captivating glass portraits. As a result, Isabelle considers her work a form of contemporary pointillism. Likewise, the colorful glass pieces are like the dots of paint used by pointillists. And the glass pieces bring to life a larger mosaic style portrait. Adore some of Isabelle’s celebrity-subjects ‘from a distance,’ in her pieces – Woppi, Someone Who Cares, and Lilou.

Textured oil paintings at Art Leaders GalleryImpasto Style, Textured Oil Paintings

Published October 13th, 2022

Texture can affect mood and influence the meaning we perceive in art. For example, in oil paintings, texture can add space and depth to a painting. One way to create texture is to use a process called impasto by applying thick layers of paint, keeping the physical marks made by the artist for visual effect. Additionally, using textures can give weight, distance, and gravity to artwork, portraying dramatic emotions.

Several of our artists use impasto as a technique to create dynamic oil paintings. Below are three of our favorite textured oil paintings currently available in the gallery!

Afternoon Break by Konstantin Savchenko

World renowned artist, Konstantin Savchenko creates paintings in an impasto style, using thick layers of oil paint.
