Hi everyone, I hope you are all doing fantastic today! I’d like to talk about the vision and goals of Tripoart.com. This site is not only about me; Charles DuFont the Artist. It’s about creating a community for artists, where people can share and improve their artistry, it’s about going on adventures and living life to the fullest, it’s about meeting new amazing artists, working with them or buying their artwork.
Blogs are great ‘cause you can post anything you want. Videos, pics of your artwork, you can write articles about yourself, your work and philosophy. You can post entertaining and original stories. Anything your heart desires, all of this can be posted online and visible to everybody in the world. Blogging will give you a sense of freedom and power, just thinking about the millions of people that can view your content. Many have turned themselves into world-famous celebrities, exclusively by their blogs.
Today, Anime Artist Saltylotus will be telling us about her craft, why she loves it and where Anime is heading in the future. Where are you from? How old are you? I’m from Indonesia, but I currently live in Sydney, Australia for study purposes. I’m 20 and I’m about to finish my Masters soon. What kind of art do you do? I specialize in anime-styled works. I’m currently still learning and developing my technical skills for now, so I don’t have a consistent specific anime style.
A native Texan, in 1967 our family moved from a sheltered, suburban Houstonian life, to the vibrant, counter-culture world of the San Francisco Bay Area, where I vicariously experienced all the frenetic psychedelia that was a part of those times. This was my first understanding of what culture shock meant to one’s experiential perspective on life. I may have been too young to take part in the revolution of the day, but I was old enough to appreciate a whole new perspective on the world about me.
I have traveled a lot and been to a wide range of odd places. Some that are awesome and unforgettable and others that I wouldn’t recommend anyone in the world to visit. In this post I’ll explain how you can create an incredible space, that will bring you lots of attention and maybe even be part of your new career or life mission. Almost any house, town, or mountain can be transformed into a tourist attraction by talent, determination, and money if you have some then that will help! Here I'll give you all some ideas and guidelines to begin, let’s get creative!
Today, I would like to introduce you to Chise Yuki who is a German-based Cosplay artist. Cosplay is a whole world of art and fantasy that I am not familiar with, so I asked Chise to explain to us a bit about her art form and how it has influenced her life. Where do you come from and what's your age? I am a 19 years old girl from Germany, south of Lower Saxony. What art form do you practice?
Hello everybody! Today I will be talking with miniature artist Anum Altaf. She is a fine artist who paints very intricate designs, so intricate that one of her favorite things to paint is insects especially beetles. She is very talented and at Tripoart we like to help and promote as many artists as we can, when I saw her art I thought it was fascinating that she paints such tiny and detailed work which has a rich historical and cultural significance. I think its important to preserve our cultural heritage no matter where we are from. So in this post we'll show you some of her artwork
Today we'll be conducting an interview with Lauren Chu who is an experienced traveler and artist based in Canada. She runs a website called The Ridgeline Report which is a blog and art store where you can see her work. She has gained a lot of knowledge and wisdom from being on the road and seeing many incredible places, so we are lucky to learn a few things from this adventurous young lady, let's start the interview!
Reading the book On The Road (published in 1957) by Jack Kerouac reminds me of my own travels, that’s why I love it so much. It was heavily influenced by Jazz music and is considered a defining work of the Beat Generation. The characters in the book find entertainment in almost anything they come across, and if there’s nothing for them to do they just go out and ride, crisscrossing the country several times on a long mystical journey to discover the purpose of life.
Big city, small city, little towns, or out in the country surrounded by the wilds of nature? What are the advantages and disadvantages of each place? More space, less space. More people, no people. Endless forms of entertainment or inventing ways to entertain yourself. Space for a farm, an art studio, or a home gym or the chance to go out and be entertained by the latest attractions of the city, while dining in the finest restaurants.
After studying the life of Genghis Khan for years I became perplexed trying to figure out a way to incorporate his lifestyle and ideals into our modern world, without going on a murderous rampage across the continents. It's true that Genghis used violence to advance his place in society and bring his nation to the forefront of the ancient world, but he was much more than just a barbaric emperor. There was a method to his ways and a reason that he was able to conquer/unite so many from such different cultural and religious backgrounds.
When I first started working with wood as a teenager, I felt like I was traveling back in time. I used to roam around the shop, carrying a board of lumber on my shoulder or analyze my set of carving chisels laid out before me, deciding which one to use. As I worked, I imagined the countless generations of craftsmen who found themselves immersed in the same labor, developing the art of furniture making throughout the ages. I had my face in the history books just as much as I had my hands on the workbench.
I recently had the opportunity to visit San Gil, Santander. It is located to the north of Tunja, Boyaca and south of Bucaramanga, which is the capital of Santander. It isn’t the most beautiful town in the country, but it does offer many attractions, various commercial activities, and the surrounding area is filled with breathtaking natural beauty...
Today, I would like to talk about my friend Juan Sebastian Mejia, who is a professional rock climber and guide with more than 20 years of experience. He grew up in Bogota, Colombia and now lives in Suesca, Cundinamarca, which is a rock climber's paradise that has more than 600 developed climbing routes. These are the questions and answers of the Interview:
A few hours from Bogota the capital of Colombia in a high altitude desert-like terrain lies Villa de Leyva, in the department of Boyaca. A well preserved and very quaint town with a history going back to prehistoric times. Villa de Leyva offers a little bit of everything for all types of tourists. Its history began during the Jurassic Period, with evidence of many fossils and remains of sea life. The most notable finding is the 35-foot aquatic reptile known as the Kronosaurus, which was uncovered towards the outskirts of town in 1977.
