Tom Glynn is a rare breed: an artist who can move effortlessly between artforms, materials, scales and registers, equally adept at making miniature paintings and monumental sculptures. And yet all of his work is unmistakably English in mood. His images are populated by the country’s Neolithic monuments and pastoral landscapes, and informed by the many artists who inhabited those places before him. Glynn is driven by the same Romantic spirit that motivated Palmer and Turner, Nash and Piper, Wallis, Lanyon and Hockney, but his art is never anything but his own. It is, after all, underpinned by an urge that has coursed through his veins since he first stepped foot in a sandpit.
HOLLYWOOD BY MATEO BLANCO – Celebrating 100 Years of the Original Marker for La La Land
Mateo Blanco, a Colombian American artist who lives in Miami, has had a longtime interest in expressing the lure of Hollywood. He has explored the power of the image and fame in his highly original portraits of iconic screen sirens like Jennifer Lawrence, whose portrait he recreated using peanuts, Madonna, Dolly Parton and many Marvel superheroes, Avatar characters as well as beloved Star War characters.
In his latest piece, HOLLYWOOD BY MATEO BLANCO, we can see how the stark white background gives power to the image: white, the color of Marilyn Monroe’s dress; white, the color of the lights that shine and make movies possible; white, the first word uttered when the director begins to shoot; white, the color of the gleaming smiles, the diamonds, the very screen on which all our dreams and movies are projected.

A Modern Romantic: Reflections on the Art of Tom Glynn
If some artists are born and others made, Tom Glynn is undoubtedly one of the former. Growing up in West Sussex in the 1950s and 60s, he possessed a voracious aesthetic sensibility from the start. Not long after beginning at school, aged five, he spent the best part of a week constructing an elaborate tunneled structure in a sandpit – astonishing his teachers in the process. In subsequent years he fashioned animals from plasticine, made assemblages from scavenged wood, sketched on scraps of paper, and built miniature model theatres. As he grew older, Glynn became interested in earlier artists, establishing what he has called a ‘lifelong friendship’ with the work of Picasso, Matisse, Arp and Brancusi. But his ambitions to become a serious artist himself only crystallized at the age of fifteen, when he visited the studio of the great post-war British sculptor, Robert Adams. Glynn even showed the older artist some of his own creations, which Adams is said to have admired.

Brief History of Digital Art
Digital art has a rich history that spans several decades. The earliest forms of digital art can be traced back to the 1960s, when artists began experimenting with computers as a medium for creating visual art. One of the first artists to work with digital technology was John Whitney, who used a computer to create abstract animations in the 1960s. Whitney’s work laid the foundation for the development of digital animation and set the stage for other artists to explore the potential of computer technology.
In the 21st century, digital art has become a global phenomenon, with many artists using evermore powerful digital tools to create a wide range of art forms, including video art, installation art, and interactive art. With the advent of the internet and social media, digital art has become more accessible than ever, allowing artists to share their work with a global audience.
