ILKIN DENIZ

 

 

"Early Morning" by Ilkin Deniz

“Early Morning” by Ilkin Deniz

 

Ilkin Deniz’s journey of painting started before he went to elementary
school in Turkey and continued with commissioned drawings of cartoons for comics, studying at the graphic department of fine art of a fine Turkish Art School, ( Mimar Sinan Fine Arts University) and holding exhibitions composed of distinct illustrative drawings of his early years. His painting life lasted in Istanbul until his thirties and now continues in Florida where he lives with his wife.

Painting by Ilkin Den

Painting by Ilkin Deniz


These fine paintings bring to America the elusive charm and feeling of
Mediterranean – poor boats wandering the blue waters of charming Istanbul to catch fish. Bought by painting collectors of America, the beautiful paintings of his continued adventure painting seas and boats have shown to the world of art that these talented hands of the Mediterranean earned the outstanding reputation with his canvas, paints, mind and soul.

Painting by Ilkin Deniz


When we observe the paintings of Ilkin Deniz, we see the following:
The soul of a boat resting in the unique harmony of the blue of the sky
with another blue of the water which perhaps is whispering a hope in the
distant horizon.

 

"Dream" by

“Dream” by Ilkin Deniz


In another unseen horizon, prayers send to the God are secretly collected in a boat on shore. In that painting, the wise Goddess Athena is carrying from the depth of the see Odysseus who was captivated at the see by the boat in the painting.

"Old Boat" by Ilkin Deniz

“Old Boat” by Ilkin Deniz


Sorrow and loneliness freed from the sharp light of the Mediterranean
have hidden in that painting, manifesting themselves through the boat.
By owning and displaying one of the paintings of Ilkin Deniz, you don’t
possess an ordinary painting, rather you come in touch with the
unity of the melancholic charm of the Mediterranean with the boundless
blue of ocean.

MIKE BACON

 

When Mike Bacon grew up in North Palm Beach, FL he enjoyed fishing, diving, camping, canoeing and spent countless hours on boats, wanting to spend every free moment in, on, under and around the water. His parents taught him to love and respect the marine environment and Mike began scuba diving at the age of 8 and was later certified in 1971.  After graduating from Florida State University with a BS in Geology, Mike worked for Mote Marine Laboratory assisting in the collection of sharks and clear-nosed skates for cancer research. He was deeply involved in the Red Tide Research Program, the Fish Stock Enhancement Program, the Marine Mammal and Turtle Stranding Network as well as turtle nest relocations.

Mike’s passion for underwater, nature and wildlife photography bloomed as he honed his photography skills. He tells us,  “The National Wildlife Federation, The Sierra Club, Ranger Rick, Audubon, Greenpeace, Sea Frontiers and Scuba News all published work from my very first submission. Not only did I win the International Wildlife Photo competition in the underwater category, but I also made three covers that first year. I was hooked for good and I decided to leave my job at Mote Marine Laboratory and moved back to North Palm Beach and begin my “career” as a full time nature photographer”.

Mike has been a full time professional underwater, nature and wildlife photographer for the past 13 years. The first three years my income as a freelance photographer was generated solely through submissions and sales of one time publishing rights of my transparencies to magazines, textbooks, calendars, encyclopedias and other book publishers and supplemented by sales of my other transparencies through “stock agents”.

Mike’s advice for other photographers who want to make this their career? “Shoot what you love the best. You have to love the being in the environment even when the subject isn’t there. Only compete against yourself. Follow your dream. Give it your all and don’t get frustrated!” Sounds like good advice from a man who loves what he does!

Beasties of the Kingdom are a Must See at 17th Annual Downtown Delray Beach Craft Festival

The 17th Annual Delray Beach Craft Festival goers will have a lot of artists to see.  John Raya’s creations, “Beasties of the Kingdom” promise to amuse and please all ages.  Previously sharing his creative genius at Disneyland and Universal Studios, John eventually struck out on his own.  Choosing a “Beastie” is probably the most difficult decision you’ll have to make!  Everything is handmade in the USA ( including the paint as well as boxes).  The Rickie Report shares the details of the full event and a glimpse of some “Beasties”.

Meet John Raya

and

his Beasties of the Kingdom

 

 

Throughout his life, John Raya’s two passions have been sculpting and cartooning. As a child, John spent long hours mastering the great works … from the “Sunday funnies”, his favorite comic books, or the all-time classic “Mad Magazine.” Any piece of paper was a potential sketch pad for John to practice drawing his childhood heroes and heroines. He shares, ” I mastered anatomy and life drawing skills by the age of ten through long hours laboring over the finer points of proportion and structure … by sketching the likes of “Wonder Woman” .”

John’s talents soon found their way to Universal Studios in California where he worked summers as a cartoonist between stints at Cal State at Fullerton where he studied the “3D’s”–dating, dancing, and design. With a knack for quick-sketch caricature, John’s art drew him to Disneyland where he would sometimes sketch up to 400 people in a single day. John eventually found his way to Walt Disney World® in Florida, where as an art director, he was responsible for artists operations in the theme park.

 

 

"ZsaZsaZebra" by John Raya

In 1975, mustering his entrepreneurial spirit and with his accumulated professional experience (and a prayer), John embarked on his own business venture. Developing the “Beasties of the Kingdom” collection along the way, John fulfilled a lifelong dream and created a vehicle for his personal style and sense of humor. Starting with just six designs in his collection, John soon directed his talents to creating new and better “Beasties” to keep up with the ever-growing demand. Since then, John has increased his collection to include over sixty new “Beasties of the Kingdom” that has attracted a global family of collectors.
