Hi guys :)) Today's post is a quick nail art and a pictorial tutorial through instagram and frametastic photos. This nail design is a bit personal to me; I was inspired by Russian Avant-Garde Art (I'm on this whole Russian kick lately), and I wanted to create something that would be pleasing to my eye and personal taste. I hope you enjoy my take on this contemporary style as much as I was inspired by these thought-provoking abstract works.
P. S. I'm out of the state once again, so my photos are low-res iphone quality at best... womp womp... I tried my best to jazz them up with cool frames and funky filters, I hope it suffices :))
This painting is by Kazimir Malevich, a famous Russian artist best known for his hugely successful work, the Black Square, and his signature geometric cubist style that pioneered the Russian Avant-garde Suprematism art movement (referenced above). The photo of the painting was borrowed from mcadenver.org.
There's definitely something to say about these works; one cannot stare at them blankly without forming an opinion or having some sort of a thought-process. Art is meant to be interpreted individually, so it's a personal journey that we must embark on our own.
Here's how I embark on mine :)
