6th Annual Howl-o-ween Party!

1 Nov

We took the crew down to the spooky High Park Off Leash Dog Park for a Halloween Party! Logan, Brooklyn, Theo & Duke had a great time running around and meeting all the other dogs.  The costumes only came out for a short time because as you can see below, Logan’s jockey nearly fell off and wound up dangling precariously by one leg.  Luckily the other dogs jumped into help and he was rescued without suffering any major injuries! 002 022 034 11562_896830783663052_1214126580085462841_n 071 072 053 10696425_896830710329726_2355009180752544920_n 10404219_896830723663058_2479391689446750844_n 074 080 017 029 033 037 042

Julien Marinetti’s ‘Doggy John’

14 Oct

Born in 1967, Julien Marinetti spent his youth between the workshops of great artists and national museums. He was only five when he created his first still life oil painting on a tea towel and started frenziedly distorting everyday objects into primitive polychromatic sculptures. A few years on, academic drawing and sculpture lessons at the “Ateliers de la Grande Chaumière” became part of his daily routine. He fed his imagination on cinema, classical music and punk rock. Young, impatient and already a prolific artist, he only spent one day at the Beaux-Arts (French Academy of Fine Arts) before dropping out and devoting himself to his art.

After several years of oil painting, in 2004 Julien Marinetti renewed his relationship with sculpture, when his masterpiece ‘Doggy John’ rapidly gained him a name in the artistic world. After his first set of ‘Doggy John’ monochromes, the artist decided to revisit the history of art and its Masters through collages, paintings and lacquers. Each ‘Doggy John’ is a unique piece of work; like a sphinx of modern times it reflects contemporary society and its history.  Here are some examples of his fine work…
