Hello and welcome to a new round of Style Imitating Art!
About Style Imitating Art
Style Imitating Art is hosted by Salazar of 14 Shades of Grey, Shelbee of Shelbee On the Edge, and me. Style Imitating Art challenges us to draw style inspiration from pieces of art. Every other Monday one of us selects an inspiration image and we each post the image on our blogs. The following Monday we share our art-inspired outfits. The following Wednesday, the curator shares all of the submissions on her blog.
This Weeks Curator
Salazar picked this round’s work.
The artist is Japanese printmaker, Ray Morimura.
Ray Morimura was born in Tokyo in 1948. He graduated from Tokyo Gakugei University. Ray Morimura began his career as a painter using abstract, geometric forms. Later he turned to woodblock printmaking. The use of geometric forms can still be found in the artist’s print designs. Ray Morimura worked as an art teacher at Tokyo Zokei University and Nihon Kogakuin school.
Have Some Fun & Join Us
I have a fondness for woodcut prints. I just bought one this weekend at an artists’ open house so I think this is pretty cool. We haven’t had a woodblock since I’ve hosted.
Go take a look in your closet and see what you have. Put something together and send it to Salazar at firstname.lastname@example.org by Tuesday, May 17th.
Anyone can participate and you certainly do not have to have a blog.
If you do share your inspirations on Instagram use the hashtag #StyleImitatingArt so we know you are there. You can also tag us in the images. Our Instagram names are @terrigardner_meadowtree, @14shadesofgrey and @shelbeeontheedge.
I think that’s it for now,
