The world has been fascinated with Freemasons for centuries.
Countless books, articles, documentaries, even Hollywood films have been made about this ancient society.
Yet, most people don’t really know much about the Masonry, their history, culture, traditions, and they certainly don’t often encounter Masonic artifacts in their daily lives.
For this reason The World Art News is especially excited to share with our audience Exclusive HD Photos of one of the largest and most spectacular Masonic Gold Jewels in North America and possibly the World!
Internationally recognized artist and filmmaker Annalaura di Luggo unveils “Collòculi” – her most artistic challenge!
“Collòculi” is an immersive, multimedia interactive work made in the shape of a Giant Eye from recycled aluminum. The symbolism of recycling is both suggestive of environmental rebirth as well as the deeper meaning of taking old thrown away emotions and creating new, more positive views through new eyes.
COLLÒCULI WE ARE ART by Annalaura di Luggo is currently on display at al National Archeological Museum of Naples MANN (Italy) until January 2023.
Former co-director of the Swiss Camera Museum, Jean-Marc Yersin started out as a professional photographer.
Since 2018, he has returned to his first passion, continuing a cycle of images that inspired him thirty years earlier. He frames tightly, in black and white, motorway structures, factories and mountain buildings.
The compositions are geometric, contrasted, sharp. There is no human presence. The forms are abstracted from their functions. The silence is absolute.
These are photographs under tension. They show the conflict between the built environment and nature, between concrete and the landscapes.
The Spy with License to Dance … and Paint!
This isn’t a fictional book by Ian Fleming, nor an imaginary film about the world’s most famous secret agent.
The “James Bond” we’re talking about here is Italian, and his name is Alberto Spadolini (1907 – 1972).
He was sexy and daring like 007, surrounded by fascinating women and celebrities of the international jet set, continually moving between different milieux – showbiz, politics, sophisticated circles, and war scenarios.
The only difference is – he was real.
Part 3 of our Exclusive Interview with Dave Vescio may be The Best One Yet!
This time Dave, an Ex-Con, a Movie Star, and an Award-Winning Artist, talks about perhaps the most important subject of all – Creativity.
Here’s a taste: “Just focus on creating art and getting it out into the world anyway you can. That’s all that matters. If you want to sell it, sell it, if you want to give it away, then give it away, if you want to store it and hope someone takes it after you die, then do that too. Either way, focus on creating the art that you want to create in this moment in time. That’s all that matters, that’s all there really is. Everything else is just an illusion of false realities of what we think life is, but actually isn’t.”
To get more out of looking at and creating art there are two easy-to-learn concepts combined by the masters of painting that have rarely been published together – until now.
Discover simple ideas that are changing how the world sees art, and revealing a visual language that has been hiding in plain sight.
The combination of asymmetrical balance and the brightness/weight illusion is a reintroduction, from the Modernist period, of a way of seeing the world and art like an artist. Like learning to play a musical instrument (or balance a bicycle), it takes practice to coordinate all the parts.
In Part 2 of our Exclusive Interview with a Movie Star and an Award-Winning artist Dave Vescio we dive deep into his Dark Past, Time in Prison, and the Harsh Lessons of Life. Dave candidly talks about his Inner Demons, Psychological Trauma, and how to live with them.

“The ones who think they are heroes tend to be the most vicious villains of all!”
“I want my artworks to show the spiritual world that everyone else just seems to walk by and not notice at all”
In Part 1 of our Exclusive Interview with a Movie Star and an Award-Winning artist Dave Vescio we dive deep into his Art, Fame, and Success, discovering what impact they had on his extraordinary life.
“I’m an artist trying to reveal to the world the things it refuses to see”
“Acting got me to tap into the deepest, darkest pits of hell”
“Art is actually our savior, our church, our educator. It’s a safe place to experience and learn about life.”
“I chose to venture out into the unknown and experience the world as it really is!”
“Explore everything in this world, until you find what you truly love to do, then explore even more!”
Dave Vescio tell his incredible life story of how he went from a Soldier to an Ex-con to a Movie Villain to an Award-Winning Contemporary Artist!
“I went on the run for a year-and-a-half. I finally got caught and was sentenced to 10-years at Fort Leavenworth, a hard-labor, maximum-security prison for Department of Defense inmates. I lived amongst some of the worst criminals in the world. We had serial killers, rapists, child molesters, and even murderers. Which turned out to be the perfect training ground for me to study these monsters and figure out why they committed these horrific crimes. I did 5-years in total; two-and-a-half on the inside and two-and-a-half on federal parole.”
