SATH – Visual Communicator

On POLITICS

Artist: Sath

“The wall with the judge was painted in the village of Son Servera, and it talks about the freedom of speech. A Spanish rapper was condemned to jail just for the lyrics of his songs… ridiculous.”

Artist: Sath

The wall “Congreso De Los Imputados” is about politics.

Artist: Sath

“At the entrance of the Spanish parliament (congreso de los diputados): I changed the word diputados for imputados, (that means imputed). There are 2 lions, so I painted 1 of them (changing the ball for a prisoner ball), to criticize the government and the corruption.”

Artist: Sath

On SOCIAL ISSUES

Artist: Sath

“I also attached the image of the last wall with my project “Som-Riu”. This week I’m gonna start another “Som-Riu” project in another village.”

SOM – RIU is a participatory mural project to aid people with intellectual disabilities. Learn more! Visit a previous GLaM post: SOM – RIU. 

With HUMOR

Artist: Sath

Sath’s sense of humor is precious, whatever he decides to say with it.

“By the way, this wall painting is the new Spanish gastrobar Broken Eggs by the Galician Chef Jacobo Astray, in Ekkamai. Great selection of wines, craft beers, amazing food and service. All for affordable prices! Buen provecho!”

The CANVAS below is titled: UNI-CORN

Artist: Sath

With  LIVE PAINTING

Artist: Sath

For the live painting shows, I paint in front of the public during music festivals. They can get tickets to win the painting with a raffle at the end”.

Sath paints B.B.King

I asked Sath about the above shot.

 “The organization in that case was called “renou col-lectiu” that in Catalan language means “collective noise”.

Sath hails from Mallorca (Spain). He uses spray & acrylic paint to create colorful pieces, slightly surreal.  He uses figurative elements, & impossible situations or actions, but he never neglects the message.

Boogapony Holly

I found this in an alley, & it made me think of Holly from House Of Heart

Artist: Nicolas Canon

I sent a pic to Holly and asked, “Does this look like you?” She answered positively yes, then mentioned something about ducking lightening.

Artist: Resa

Then I muttered I should be doing graffiti tours in Toronto. Holly said she’d drive the bus. Well, one thing lead to another, and we formed the Boogapony Dancers.

Artist: Nicolas Canon

Of course we would need the perfect outfit to dance in front of graffiti, street art and murals. We came up with the outfit you see here.

Blind Artist Seeks Audience for his Fab Art

My friend Vernon went blind 20 years ago. Yet, he still paints! I asked him if he remembers colors, & uses that memory?

Artist Vernon Milette at work on “Primary Squares” – Photo © Sal Buccellato

“Yes”, was his answer. He added “And I always paint in oils”

The above oil painting titled “White Glads at Night” is my fave. It blows my mind that he painted it, blind, with a knife. Vernon also designs gardens to this day.

Vernon told me, ” I can show you the exact spot in my garden where these Glads grow”

Above in mixed media, is  “Soup”

Vernon said, “I used several stencils from the Dollar Store for the background. The word SOUP & the A & Z are on raised wood blocks (about 1/8th of an inch). It’s an homage to braille, in that it is tactile.”

Artist: Vernon Milette – Photo © Sal Buccellato

There are lots of colors in the above painting, “Tenements”. I asked Vernon how he knows which tube of paint is what color?

Vernon answered, “I have a bar code reader, that reads out loud to me. On the tubes of paint, the color is listed in the code. I line them up accordingly. Tenements is done in 3 colors, mixed in variations and applied very thickly”.

“Rhapsody in Blue”

This painting was inspired by a jazz evening w/Molly Johnson at the Soul Pepper Theater . Molly is an amazing singer, & friend of Vernon. He sat in a front row & is still inspired by the love and recognition Molly showed him when she sat at his table.

Vernon noted, “thoughts inspired by Molly were: “cello note”, Molly lead, ultra marine.  All other singers = other blues. The shades progress to a light turquoise for depth. It’s painted using a cardboard template, with a brush. Check out Molly’s Kensington Jazz Fest

“Construction”

Vernon told me, “this painting is based on a construction site’s nails, screws, black nails, rot & climaxes in rust. All colors represent something  at a construction site.
