I recently placed my first order with MisterArt.com and am absolutely astounded at the short amount of time it took to reach me. It was even delivered a day earlier than the shipping carrier's website said it would be! Everything was packed nicely, with masking tape around the tops of all liquids. WOW! I have ordered from one of your competitors in the past - and am here to tell you I will never utilize their services again. I am shocked at the differences between you and that other company - you are in a completely different category as there is NO competition! I wanted to thank you for doing such a terrific job. I am ecstatic with every item I ordered and cannot wait to order again from you. Your prices are fabulous, the product info is terrific, confirmation/update emails are informative without being overwhelming, your products are high quality and the shipping is beyond fast. Thank you for truly servicing your customers - from the fine artist to the craft hobbyist. You've earned a long-term customer!

Gino Severini

Gino Severini

(1883 - 1966)
Born: Cortona, Italy
Style: Futurism
Famous Works:
Before deciding to become an artist, Gino Severini's life had been decidedly unexceptional. Severini grew up poor and faced expulsion from the Italian school system at the age of fifteen. After moving to Rome and finding work as a shipping clerk, Severini developed an interest in art and enrolled in classes during his spare time. Severini became friends with Umberto Boccioni, and the two studied under Giacomo Balla who introduced them to the principles of Divisionism. Inspiration found Severini in Paris, where he moved in 1906, and became friends with Amedeo Modigliani. In this way he became a link between the work of the French avant-garde painters and sculptors, and the Futurist movement in Italy. Futurism sought to portray objects by understanding their potential for movement, by portraying an additional continuum of time. This is in contrast to Cubists, who were looking at the spatial concept of multiple points of view. In 1910, Severini became a formal member of the Futurist movement by signing its manifesto. Though he was officially connected to the Futurists, Severini's work continued to demonstrate Cubist influences as well as elements of Divisionism he had first seen in Giacomo Balla's work. Severini was adept in the Futurist style, and though he completed several works that explore the dynamism of war and locomotion, his works featuring dancers are the ones that set him apart. Beginning in 1916, Severini explored the Neo-classical style, moving away from Cubism and Futurism. During this period he completed one of his most recognizable works, Pierrot the Musician. Severini went on to work in mosaic and fresco, completing many commissioned murals, even dabbling in abstraction before eventually revisiting his earlier theme of dancers in motion. Severini's work reflects the influence of his extraordinary group of friends, including Pablo Picasso, Juan Gris, and even Georges Seurat. Evident in his work is inspiration from Seurat's use of localized, brilliant color, the Cubists' emphasis on objects or words as symbols, and the Futurists' kaleidoscope of time and motion. Throughout his career, Severini continually worked to synthesize multiple styles, and in doing so, created his own.

For many years I used the Elegant Writer pen for calligraphy. But the last few years I have been using it for creating art work. Check out my blog on www.myelegantwriter.com Or just google elegant writer to see how many people are using the pen in various ways. It's fun and an inexpensive way to make art.
