Music will save the world

“Beaty will save the world,” Fyodor Dostoyevsky wrote in  his book, The Idiot.

Music is beauty.  Art is  beauty.

And when music and art meet, the epitome of beauty is born.

Synesthesia is the metaphorical process by which one sense modality is described or characterized in terms of another sense, such as “a bright sound” – sight with hearing -or “a sweet music” – taste with hearing -. With these paintings one can actually “see music”, not only hear it: a double pleasure.

“If music be the food of love, play on.” ~ William Shakespeare ~

“Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything.” ~ Plato ~

Jimmy Lawlor

Jimmy Lawlor is an Irish artist, born in December of 1967 in Wexford, and currently living and working in Westport,  west Ireland.  Initially an illustrator, Jimmy started to focus on fine art painting in late 1990s.  His inspiration comes from the pastoral surroundings of rural Ireland: people, towns, landscapes and animals, portraited with a humorous twist and some surreal elements and themes like flying and over-sized objects.  He enjoys that people can have fun with this art:  “It’s refreshing to hear the chuckles in a gallery, as people see something in the work that reminds them of home,” he said.

Lawlor’s work has been featured in many magazines and  television programs. Also, his work is included in many important private and corporate collections in Ireland and all around the world, among them IIU, Oliver Reed Estate, Hugh Leonard, Treasury Holdings, Diageo Ireland, Dermot Desmond, Brenda Fricker, Great Southern Hotel Group, Government Buildings and Anglo Irish Bank London.

Dancing Flower

“You must have chaos within you to give birth to a dancing star.”

Dancing Flower



In Chaudfontaine Park, in in the outskirts of Liege, Belgium, a huge wooden clothespin is holding a piece of land with a surprising and very admired surreal effect.

This sculpture was designed by Turkish artist Mehmet Ali Uysal, a professor of art at the Middle East Technical University, and built for the Festival of the Five Seasons in 2010.

For another amazing surreal sculpture, see also Horizon, created in 1994 by Neil Dawson and located in New Zealand and Sho, created in 2007 by Jaume Plensa  and exhibited at the Meadows Museum, SMU, Dallas.

Metal artwork: Joel Sullivan

Joel Sullivan, a canadian artist now living in Nova Scotia, was inspired in an early age from his mother’s drawings and spent most of his free time sketching animals, Super Heroes and anatomy which especially fascinated him.
As an adult, after taking a decorative welding course, Joel abandoned the pencil and started to use metal as the base of his work. Combining fine art and metal craftsmanship, Joel creates works that are raw and unusual. He founded Iron Designs and created anatomical sculptures, robots, abstract works and wall art.

Attitude - Angel Roy

The result of a relation between art and anatomy and between photography and graphism, this is the work of French artist Angel Roy.
Angel Roy, born in Paris in 1975, is a self-taugh artist. He began his career in 90’s, in Parisian artistic squats, when, influenced by electro and hip-hop cultures, he organised some artistic events, mixing art, music and craft.
Photographies are the starting point of his work and then Angel Roy uses graphic tools for giving a new face to urban architecture or to human beings.
His vision is to see human beings being like a machine in motion: a “bio-mechanical being”. He likes to emphasise body organs, branchings, and mechanism. Collages, anatomical charts, dark atmospheres form part of his artistic vocabulary, creating a sort of dark, futuristic vision of the world.

Currently Angel Roy spend his time between New York and Paris, where he manages the gallery LA CAVE SHOW ROOM GALLERY in the Saint- Ouen Flea market , close to Paris.
