I appreciate the quick service. The rep I dealt with, as I find with all your reps, was very courteous.

Styles & Periods
Neo-Expressionism

Neo-Expressionism, also known as the Trans-avant-garde, Energism, New Fauvism or Wild Painting, is primarily represented by painters starting in the 1970s. Of all the new tendencies born in the 1970s, Neo-expressionism has prevailed as the strongest and most significant. Aggressive, emotional handling of diverse materials characterizes this style, whose exponents have used straw and broken ceramics on their canvases. Most of Neo-Expressionist work is figurative, although the highly activated picture plane recalls much of the work of painters in the 1950s. Many of the artists created large paintings, and in the 1980s, when this style flourished, extraordinarily large sums were collected for the sale of the works. Some of the most famous and successful artists have become stars in international fields of art and entertainment, including Francesco Clemente, Julian Schnabel, David Salle and Mimmo Paladino.

Latest Product Reviews

I really like these pencils. I accidentally found a technique that really exemplified the "magic" in them. Rolling the pencil to preserve the point and coloring in a circular motion really brings out the random beauty of the colors in coloring a small petaled flower like a zinnia. I have colored an entire picture with one pencil and gotten raves about it. The biggest drawback I am experiencing is the lack of tutorials to help people understand how to use them. I have seen critiques where the artist did not have a clue how to use them. I have also seen a Russian tutorial that shows a lot of blending techniques that really show some extraordinary effects. I am currently exploring their use for backgrounds. I like the pencils and find them a challenge to explore the "magic."

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.
