.my art fragments.


.


.i don't believe in artist statements, in artistic purpose, or in art that's considered finished - what i create remains unfinished, incidental and unpredictable, always evolving with(in) me.
.here are some of my art fragments.

“ I have never once in my life seen a fanatic with a sense of humor. Neither have I seen anyone with a sense of humor become a fanatic, unless he or she lost their sense of humor over something. ”
Amos Oz


































.For Georges Wolinski (one of the first cartoonists i discovered that made me laugh so much), for Jean Cabut, Stéphane Charbonnier and Bernard Verlhac, and for all the others that were lost today.
For freedom of expression and the universal right to laugh at everything and anything.
For art.

.Art Theft and the Misuse of our Artworks.

Journal Entry: Wed Aug 27, 2014, 12:41 PM
I've found 54!! of my artworks offered as free downloads on the infamous vk.com site..There's a lovely wall with my art -titles removed and no links to my sites- where one can click and download: vk.com/aphoticzone?z=album-307… Needless to say that -apart from the fact that they did choose my best works, good taste people ha!- i would like to punch them hard on the face. (::update:: i've realized that there are plenty of other albums from the same user/company(?) vk.com/cvartira on the site, some containing well known artworks from dA artists, titles removed, and of course the free download button is always present..)


Online Art theft, we all know, is prevalent nowadays, and the reason for this journal is not to say, "yeah it sucks" or "when you post online it's bound to happen" , but to see if there are ways to hold to our basic rights of safeguarding our work. And to be honest, it's not as much a matter of money, if any, that these -or any other- creeps may get out of my work, but mostly the blood, sweat and tears that went into it (literally) that are not being respected.


dA is a great community, but it exists because we make it so..we post here, we interact here, we inspire and get inspired. dA should do something about us in return.. A very basic tool that the dA developers may want to look at, is the well known block right-click downloads. C'mon people, you have tweaked the site so many times throughout the years, and yet this simple thing has not been considered or implemented! It works on other sites. Just try to download anything from : 1x.com/ and see what happens: a little box comes up saying "This Photo Is Copyrighted" So simple, so effective!

It's time for dA to do the same!

I'd love to see some feedback - i'm doing some travel(l)ing at the moment, but i always find the time to check on things here.
(Also, thanks to :iconmetal-bender: whose recent journals are bringing awareness to this issue.)

"I will always be the virgin-prostitute, the perverse angel, the two-faced sinister and saintly woman."















"I postpone death by living, by suffering, by error, by risking, by giving, by losing."














"I only believe in intoxication, in ecstasy, and when ordinary life shackles me, I escape, one way or another. No more walls."















"Had I not created my whole world, I would certainly have died in other people's. "















"I have no brakes on...analysis is for those who are paralyzed by life."













"Stories do not end."














"The dream was always running ahead of me. To catch up, to live for a moment in unison, was the miracle."















"I will not adjust myself to the world. I am adjusted to myself."

















"There is a fissure in my vision and madness will always rush through."















"I am only responsible for my own heart, you offered yours up for the smashing my darling. Only a fool would give out such a vital organ"















"Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one's courage."

"There is no escape. You can't be a vagabond and an artist and still be a solid citizen, a wholesome, upstanding man. You want to get drunk, so you have to accept the hangover. You say yes to the sunlight and pure fantasies, so you have to say yes to the filth and the nausea. Everything is within you, gold and mud, happiness and pain, the laughter of childhood and the apprehension of death. Say yes to everything, shirk nothing. Don't try to lie to yourself. You are not a solid citizen. You are not a Greek.* You are not harmonious, or the master of yourself. You are a bird in the storm. Let it storm! Let it drive you! How much have you lied! A thousand times, even in your poems and books, you have played the harmonious man, the wise man, the happy, the enlightened man. In the same way, men attacking in war have played heroes, while their bowels twitched. My god, what a poor ape, what a fencer in the mirror man is - particularly the artist - particularly myself!"

| Hermann Hesse |
