Arte Povera

Arte Povera developed in Italy in the 1960s, and became an internationally influential sculpture movement. This movement is called Povera, which is Italian for “poor,” for the artists’ use of discarded and worthless materials. Part Conceptual Art, part Minimalism, the movement liberated artists from traditions. Also called Actual Art, Impossible Art and Anti-form, the message of Arte Povera was a reaction against media and commercialism and therefore the Pop revolution that was glorifying the erasure of the hand of the artist. Informality of process, as well as display, allowed a stronger, more vital connection to everyday life. This prerogative has much in common with the Performance artists of America, and the connection between the artist and materials. In a similar current, Japanese artists of the Mono-Ha, or school of things, were also creating works of sculpture using everyday, beautiful, materials and presenting their work in unconventional ways. While an almost entirely Italian-based movement, the currents of Arte Povera were felt all over the globe.

I use mineral paper with alcohol ink. It is an excellent alternative to the more expensive Yupo paper. However, mineral paper is not as stiff as Yupo.

I'm not a stencil artist but a silversmith. I have several of the 1" brushes, and they are perfect for sweeping my bench. I use the brushes to sweep the silver and gold filings off my bench, and they do a superb job of cleaning loose metal bits off my projects. I don't like to use any other brushes. I use the smaller ones ( the 1/2" and 3/8") for gently cleaning wax models and jewelry in progress. These brushes have greater control, stiffness and yet pliable bristles that does the job very well. I'm sticking with these brushes for a very long time.

I absolutely love these markers. The colors are beautiful. They are easy to use as well. These are a good price too.
