World Art Day 15 April

15 Apr

In the hope of spreading Art awareness, last year Bedri Baykam presented a proposal suggesting that Leonardo da Vinci’s birthday, April 15, be declared World Art Day (WAD). A whole bunch of countries including Mexico, France, China, Cyprus (Greek), Sweden, Japan, Slovakia, Mauritius and Norway unanimously accepted the proposal by the IAA’s General Assembly. The AA/AIAP, is an NGO operating with UNESCO, comprising artists belonging essentially to the fields of painting, sculpture, printmakers and artists practising other forms of creative work in the visual arts.

Although the music world isn’t included in WAD, there does exist a World Music Day celebrated every year (since 1982) which takes place on 21. June. More of that in June, but for now here is WAD playlist. I have to praise John Langford for his entertaining prowess. He’s just great and this song slaps down on the counter what it’s like to be an artist and entertainer. And it goes without saying that Langford’s other bands, mates and collaborators – Sally Timms, The Sadies and the amazing Mekons – join him in excellence.
Brian (Peter George St. John le Baptiste de la Salle ) Eno, is not only an accomplished master mind musician and author, he created ‘Self Storage’  – an Installation that was exhibited at the Alcan Foil Factory near Wembley in 1995. The song Regiment from the Album My Life In A Bush Of Ghosts (Brian Eno, David Byrne) is an amazing, eclectic, sensual mix of east meets west and the Album as a whole was considered ground breaking upon its release in 1981. It is indeed timeless as it brings together electronics, ambience, held together with a beautiful bass line and beat.

  1. Regiment, Brian Eno and David Byrne
  2. There She Goes Again, Velvet Underground & Nico
  3. Andy Warhol, David Bowie
  4. Renaissance Man, Gene Burnett
  5. Architects Dream, Kate Bush
  6. John Langford, Are You An Entertainer
  7. Art For Art Sake, 10CC
  8. Street Life, Roxy Music
I leave you also with the video of Roxy Music’s Street Life. Brian Ferry- well he’s just a walking work of art in a sharp suit.

    added- checkbox and from now on every time a comment is added I receive four emails with the
    exact same comment. There has to be an easy method you are able to remove me
    from that service? Many thanks!

    When a user comes in searching for a product personal trainer
    24 hour fitness requirements they will often be charged anywhere
    from two to five times the actual cost of materials, not to mention inflated labor costs.
    The site offers deals on bulk orders and a lot of times, people find coupons for dog food coupons.
    Online retailers are giving away great discounts to try
    and attract new customers and increase their sale and create brand awareness.
