We Welcome Cuban Artist Yasiel Palomino Perez

 

We are thrilled and honoured to welcome Yasiel Palomino Perez to The Phoenix Collection of Fine Art. From his beautiful equine art to landscapes, portraits, Old Havana's classic cars and abstracts, Yasiel's work is awe-inspiring. He is able to capture the essence of each subject in his masterful brush strokes. Working in acrylic and oil, his stretched gallery wrapped original paintings are highly collectible and a great investment in fine art.

Rick Pas - Acrylic Nature Paintings

Ever wondered how beautiful art is created? This article from the e-magazine, Artists Network, explores the creative process of Rick Pas and his nature art.
When people hear the low, measured voice of artist Rick Pas for the first time, they suggest he could have
a successful career in radio broadcasting, but broadcasting’s gain would have been the art world’s loss. Pas specializes in painting nature and wildlife, but his focus is on the abstract patterns and textures visible in nature, such as in the veins of a leaf or the tracery on a moth’s wing.

Wearable Art - Canadian Jewelry Designer, Danny Pollak

With the One-of-a-Kind Christmas Craft Show on the horizon, it fondly brings to mind my career as a jewelry collecting editor for the second largest women's website in the mid-2000s. During my tenure, I wrote about fabulous jewelry and its makers -- including the Canadian jewelry designer Danny Pollak -- interviewed famous designers, learned about gemology and immersed myself into the world of gems.

Inevitably, I began designing jewelry myself and learning how to string beads, then fabricate metal, and finally make chainmaille. I did the craft show circuit, but lately have put that creative outlet on hold to devote my time to The Phoenix Collection. The following article written in 2014, continues to get lots of visitors although the page is no longer a part of any website, so I decided to include it here in our Art & Style blog since jewelry is after all, wearable art.

If, like a moth to a flame, you are drawn to unusual and dramatic jewelry that has more than its fair share of pizzazz, then you’ll love Canadian jeweler, Danny Pollak. Pollak has been designing and making high quality jewelry for more than 30 years. Every handcrafted piece made by this master metalsmith is guaranteed for life; repaired and returned by mail, free of charge. He crafts his pieces in brass; then coats them with rhodium, 24 karat gold, sterling or copper. Swarovski crystals or rhinestones in dynamic colors such as red, orange, purple and lime green are then hand-set into each piece. Most are finished with vintage objets d’art accents.
