Internet Weekly Report - Art And Culture

IWR Art Links For 11/19/2007

The Art of Saira Wasim [Bio 1975]
Saira Wasim is a contemporary Pakistani artist, who specializes in political and cultural art.  Her Silent Voices 1 painting below for example is dedicated to the sexually abused baby girls in Pakistan, who have no voice in that country (our so-called ally).   One of the great tragedies of this damn war in Iraq is that women had it better under Saddam Hussein than they do with our so-called 'friends'.  I think I'll head over to Berkeley this week and check out Ms. Wasim's  One Way or Another: Asian American Art Now Exhibit at BAM/PFA.

Lauren Bacall Photos [Bio 1924]
After I saw the the Penny Arcade Portrait of Lauren Bacall by Joseph Cornell, it reminded me of what a beauty Lauren Bacall was in her day.   Last week, I watched her first movie that she starred in with her husband to be Humphrey Bogart - To Have And Have Not.  She was only 19!

It's been a long time since I posted any monster posters.  I've been kind of keeping this German site to myself because I was using it to create photo cartoons.  There's a lot of great sci-fi posters, lobby cards and paraphernalia on this site.

Sai Tamiya
I have blogged this artist before, but when I ran into her sight again, I was really impressed with the painting below.  The colors, textures and patterns in this painting are quite remarkable.

Sofia Chiostri Postcards (Via Tea Time)
These are cool.

Glamour Photography - Summer 1957 (Via Blort)
This is a full scan of the Summer 1957 magazine.  It's pretty cheesy, but still a little titillating at the same time.
