ARTIST SPOTLIGHT:  LAYES HUSSAIN

ARTIST SPOTLIGHT: LAYES HUSSAIN

". . .  The truth is, art chose me.  I mean, I think art made me, because without art I don’t know what I’d be doing or what career I’d be in.  Pretty much as a kid, I’d doodle but whenever I saw other people paint I’d be fascinated.  I would say that deep down inside, seeing other artist paint sparked a fire inside of me.  Also, in my late twenties, I didn’t want to live my life doing the typical thing of going, out, hanging out, and working.  I wanted to be productive.  I want 30-40 years from now, if a friend bumps into me and asks what have you accomplished in the last 20 years, I want to say something like I have twenty thousand people who own my artwork.  . . . ."

GUEST POST:  The Importance of Everyday Art

GUEST POST: The Importance of Everyday Art

What does the word ‘art’ mean to you?

Does it conjure up images of foreboding galleries with gold-framed paintings from hundreds of years ago? Or is it that strange sculpture you pass every day on your commute and aren’t sure why it’s there...

Confessions from the YH Team

Confessions from the YH Team

Confession!  We here at Yellow Hibiscus Gallery have been wrestling with the challenge of translating the feeling of connecting with a painting in real life to connecting with one in virtual reality.  Yes, we understand that nothing beats real life, but our whole business model is premised on the theory that we can simulate that lovely feeling one gets when one falls in love with a painting.

ARTIST SPOTLIGHT: MAEVA FOUCHE

Ten years ago when I picked up a paintbrush, I didn’t think at that time it would be one of the best decisions I would ever make. I started out with little to no knowledge about art. This journey I’ve been on has been full of enlightenment, progression, self-awareness and fulfillment. I’ve cried, been frustrated, excited, nervous, and even doubtful. With all of that I’ve learned to harness those feelings and translate it into my work. So I would say being an artist has been very therapeutic for me. It has opened doors, and placed the right people and circumstance in my life.
