Ars longa, vita brevis. In fact, I'd like to steal this painting. By appointment only.

Georg Baselitz

Brilliant, urgent and provocative, German artist Georg Baselitz is among the most celebrated artists of his time. His engagement with German national identity at a time when many artists were shying away from so difficult a subject was an extraordinary act of self-assertion. Much of his best work appears hideous, unsettling, and in some cases even crude. But there is far more to Baselitz’s paintings and art prints than first meets the eye, and their apparent coarseness camouflages their own astonishing levels of accomplishment.

Malta_The APS Mdina Cathedral Contemporary Art Biennale

by U Gen Ghen

As publisher of Arstler, the web-based fine and applied art magazine, I am pleased to announce that Renay Elle Morris, our editor of photographic and fine art development has been selected to exhibit her photographic images at The APS Mdina Cathedral Contemporary Art Biennale to be held in Malta. The theme “The Mediterranean: A Sea of Conflicting Spiritualties” will be on display in the magnificent baroque halls of Malta’s Mdina Cathedral_famed for its rich archive of paintings, sculptures, drawings and artifacts of the decorative arts, architectural fragments, and curios. The 2017-2018 edition is a large-scale contemporary art exhibition, and follows the success of 2015-2016 where it initiated a framework for artists, curators and researchers to work together to establish a creative space. With a global following, invitations have been sent to Maltese and international artists who have set in motion the development of new works that challenge artistic and political conventions.
