Marsha Bhagwansingh Offers Classes And Individual Instruction In Calligraphy, Lifelike Drawing, Portraiture, Painting, Composition, Mandala Art, And The Art Of Coffee Painting

Caribbean born award winning artist, Marsha Bhagwansingh, known as “Marsha B”, offers classes in Palm Beach County.  While her influences include the Italian Renaissance, the breadth of her talent includes Calligraphy, Lifelike Drawing, Mandala Art, Portraiture, Painting, Composition and Color, and the art of Coffee Painting!  Are you intrigued?  Marsha continues to explore new mediums, and offer classes at Easel Art Supply in Lake Park, FL and at Lot23 in Northwood Village.  She is also available for individual and group lessons.  The Rickie Report shares the details and some sneak peeks.  (We were going to say “perks” because we are so excited about painting with coffee)!

 

 

 

 

M a r s h a         B h a g w a n s i n g h  

Art       Classes

 

 

 

 

 

Influenced at an early age by the Italian Renaissance, Marsha began her formal art training in San Fernando, Trinidad where she gained experience with graphite, charcoal and chalks, and subjects such as the human face and figure. In 1992, at the age of 18 began her career in tutoring calligraphy, which she continues today. In 1995, she furthered her art education at Miami Dade College in Florida where she was introduced to sculpting and painting.

 

 

 

 

 

Marsha began teaching calligraphy at the age of sixteen.

She opened classes for adults in drawing and painting in 1999

 

 

 

Marsha’s   Programs  Include:

Calligraphy

Lifelike Drawing

Portrait Drawing

Painting

Composition and Color

The Art of Coffee Painting

 Mandala Art

 

 

 

“Wave” by Marsha Bhagwansingh, Oil on Canvas

 

Within recent years, Marsha has explored various new materials with which to create her art, including coffee!  She offers classes in the art of coffee painting in Northwood and Lake Park.  She also is influenced by the exploration of the more spiritual side of life and the therapeutic aspects of art. She enjoys painting mandalas for relaxation and healing, sharing this artform in her mandala making classes. Marsha enjoys exploring new mediums and manners of expression, believing that self-expression, imagination, and the will to push beyond the norm are necessary for artistic growth.

 

 

 

“Mandala Peacock” by Marsha Bhagwansingh,  Oil on Canvas

 

Upcoming programs:

 

Mandala Art:  Mandalas help activate our own healing abilities for physical and spiritual balance and opens the gateway to our inner potential. They can be used as spiritually transforming and meditative tools. When creating and viewing a mandala, the left side of the brain (responsible for reasoning and problem solving) rests, creating a shift into a relaxed state of inner clam.

 

 

“Coffee Flower” by Marsha Bhagwansingh, Coffee on Watercolor Paper

 

 

 

The Art of Coffee Painting:  Centuries ago, when coffee started to be widely used in Europe, artists who had been influenced by the Chinese tradition of painting with tea, began to experiment with coffee as a painting medium. Today, coffee art expressions are created out of something seemingly ordinary, while presenting the delicacy of watercolors with a soothing muted palette and an unmistakable aroma with which to create art.

 

 

Calligraphy by Marsha Bhagwansingh

 

Calligraphy:  The ancient art of Calligraphy is still alive today and has drawn many to its skillful letterform expression of written communication. Calligraphers give writing a visual life with which to impress upon the reader, a more meaningful and eloquent message.

 

 

 

“Bo” by by Marsha Bhagwansingh, Graphite on Paper

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ongoing classes:

 

Ongoing classes in drawing and painting are held at Easel Art Supply Center

810 Park Avenue   Lake Park on Saturdays from 10:30 am – 1:30 pm

 

Individual attention

All levels welcome

Yury Lobo Exhibits New Work At Art On Park Gallery, Artists Of Palm Beach County Offer Free Classes, Workshops, Poetry Events

Art on Park Gallery, home of  Artists of Palm Beach County, presents new artworks by Yury Lobo.  He was raised in a small rural town in Russia, where the signs “No Trespassing” hung on every door. By pure chance, at the age of 12, Yury and his mother attended the first American Exhibition in Moscow.  He was particularly struck by the painting, “Cathedral” by American abstract expressionist, Jackson Pollock. That day changed the trajectory of his life forever! Pushing boundaries, Yury found freedom in the United States, being fully opened to new heights of artistic expression. The Rickie Report shares details of his newest exhibit at Art on Park Gallery in Lake Park.  Meet the artist on Friday, August 24th at a free, opening reception.  We also list classes, free workshops and other events available at Art On Park Gallery.

“Exhausted” by Yury Lobo

 

 

Since his early childhood, Yury Slobodenuk has been fascinated with the world of wild colors and the art of collage. However, he never considered becoming a professional artist partly due to the lack of encouragement from his parents and partly due to the general disapproval of this “degenerate art” by the Soviet authorities. What stands out in his memory is a visit to the first American National Exhibition with his mother in July, 1959, featuring among others, Jackson Pollock’s “Cathedral”. Yury was shocked and amazed at the same time. He tells The Rickie Report, “Most visitors considered it a joke..in bad taste. But the impact on my subconscious at the age of 12 was life changing. That is why my interests centered later on with more avant-garde artists. I appreciate Van Gogh, Chagall, Kandinsky, Malevich, Picasso, Matisse, Miro, Brague, Warhol, Rothko, Klimt, Shiele, Modigliani and of course, Pollock.”

 

“Venus of Auschwitz” by Yury Lobo

 

Yury created a few paintings for close friends and family, trusting his inner instincts. Back then, in the USSR he didn’t have the courage to paint and share his passion for abstract expressionism and collage publicly. Keeping his painting mostly to himself, he pursued a career that was more economically sound. He received a Masters degree in German and English, studied the history of art and worked as a licensed multilingual guide at the majors art museums in the former USSR. He became a journalist, interpreter, German teacher, TV script writer.

 

“Beatles Undivided” by Yury Lobo

 

 

 

Having fled the USSR in 1991 for political reasons, Yury first established himself in Miami and pursued his journalism career, working for several Russian-American newspapers. Later, he started one of his own, but sold it in 2007 and moved to West Palm Beach, where he continues his career as a German teacher and now a contemporary artist. The freedom of expression in America has motivated and inspired Yury to fulfill the dream of his youth – sharing his creative side publicly. His artistic name, “Lobo” is a shortened form of his long Ukrainian last name, “Slobodenyuk”, which translates to ” a free man”. “Lobo” means “wolf”, the symbol of the tireless will, yearning for freedom.

 

 

Yury tells The Rickie Report, ” My fellow countryman, Kasimir Malevich once said, ‘Comrades, arise, free yourselves from the tyranny of objects!’ In this sense, I, like him, consider myself an abstract artist and a revolutionary. My battle cry is ‘Stop copying the world! Create a new one!’ Whoever is afraid of bright colors is afraid of life, which I am not”. Furthermore, Yuri confesses, ” I know it sounds nuts, but I consider myself a kind of modern reincarnation of the late Jackson Pollock who, in his own words was a “cowboy” painter. Like him, I’m painting “from the hip”, creating huge abstract compositions within minutes, using brusque wild strokes of bold colors. Some of my colleagues (part joking, part serious) are dubbing me “Jack The Whipper” for whipping that canvas with paint instead of dripping it as Jack The Dripper (Jackson Pollock) did”.

“Night in Lisbon” by Yury Lobo

 

 

 

Yury goes on to explain, “In the art of collage, I represent a completely different point of view. My slightly distorted collages are pretty close to reality and filled with hidden ironies and sometimes tragic messages. Being a history buff, I can’t help but act as the mocking bird, laughing at the human inability to learn from history…which of course sees that such ignorance is doomed to repeat itself. Every collage is a “time capsule” with a message to future generations. A true artist is about the inner energy which he or she tunnels to the public through the art. If there is no reaction at the receiving end, then the energy was either poor or lost in artistic translation”.
