The New Swans Gazette, issue 6

The New Swans Gazette

Issue 6, 2016-03-17

Because of a heavy work load, there have not been any issue the last couple of weeks.

However, to not let any readers hanging I have made a couple of videos you might enjoy, so here they are.

This one is called “Translators in Heat“. Don’t let the title scare you, noting sexual about it, just a homage to some horror films I quite like.

The second film,  “The faceless man“, is more of an art project than anything else. An important subject about what is happening in the world today. It was also a platform for me to learn Blender (3D animation), so it lacks some consistency between the scenes. I think you might enjoy it anyway.

So that was all from The New Swans Gazette for now.

A creation called “Open” by Veronica

Every creation need a beginning, a middle and an end. The beginning is the foundation, the vision you want to transform to the canvas or to the paper. Sometimes that foundation is based on a failure. Something you did, but the mental image you had never appeared on the canvass, not as you thought it would anyway.
That can be a very good foundation for the next piece, the creation that will obscure the previous one, but never hide it completely.

Open

Open

This creation of Veronica has just such a foundation. It is a multi dimensional image that hides her previous work, but it does not erase it. Giving it the patina that other creations lack, that went from idea to completion without this crucial step. Behind it you can, if you lean in closely, see the old work talking to you, making friends with its new companion, the new work of art.

Open

Open

It is a creation that has a hint, a scent of steam punk mixed with some industrial elements, blending into an amalgamation of difference styles, creating not really something new, rather a new take on something familiar.
A playful game of colours, items and paint makes this work called “Open” fit its name with uncanny
accuracy.

The great thing with this work is that it will never die, not really. It will live on forever as a piece of art, as a memory and even when it will succumb to time, as we all must, it will fule another living being, a nurishment for a tree, growing, and opening, just as this work of art, right now, is opening for you.

A quadrilogy

This gallery contains 4 photos.

In my never ending search for a creative outlet, to find new techniques or just try and fail, I have created my first quadrilogy. More by chance than anything else the four works came to being, being born from a combination of paper, the leftover graphite from when I sharpen my pen and a curiosity […]

12 Doișpe, a home for art

12 Doispe

Starting with the 2nd of November until the end of the month an ongoing guerilla art exhibition is being held at the restaurant 12 Doispe in Craiova.

Thanks to the owner, the artists Veronica Svanström, Cristina Dragomir and Magnus Svanström have had the opportunity to display their works. In a very fluent and dynamic way, they are scattered all over the place, making them blend in and stand out at the same time. They are three very different artists with distinct styles, making this an interesting display of creations.

Magnus Svanström


Veronica, married to Magnus, started her travel into creating art in Sweden. She is an avid scrapbooker and mixed-media artist. Her style varies from steampunk, photography to the simple joy of capturing memories on a scrapbooking page.

Art sets you free

Art sets you free by Veronica Svanström


Cristina is the trained professional. On canvasses she lets her brushes flow, creating ideas, objects and faces in a whirlwind of carefully selected colours and flowing brush strokes.

Magnus focuses more on an idea than the actual technique. He works mostly in acrylic or simple pen, trying to project a feeling or an idea.

And we have a last artist, even though he would himself not agree, he is a very unassuming cool guy. If art is a way to take one form and turn it into something else, then the owner is an artist. Creating a very relaxed and creative environment, he uses another kind of brush to create his own kind of work.

So feel free to visit 12 Doișpe, enjoy some art with a beer or a refreshing ice-tea.

Magnus and Veronica can most often be found at this place on Sundays, so if you see a guy with a sketchpad stop by and say hello.

12 Doișpe, gazdă pentru artă

12 Doispe

12 Doispe

Începând cu 2 noiembrie și până la finele lunii, restaurantul 12 Doișpe din Craiova găzduiește o expoziție de artă în stil guerilla.

Datorită patronului, artiștii Veronica Svanström, Cristina Dragomir și Magnus Svanström au avut ocazia de a-și expune creațiile. Într-un stil foarte fluent și dinamic, creațiile sunt dispuse prin tot localul, ceea ce le face să se integreze bine în decor dar și să iasă cum trebuie în evidență.

Artiștii au stiluri foarte diferite, ceea ce face ca expoziția să fie cu atât mai interesantă.

Magnus Svanström


Veronica, căsătorită cu Magnus, și-a început incursiunea în artă în Suedia. Este pasionată de mixed-media și scrapbooking, a cărui artă o împărtășește și craiovenilor. Când creează, ea poate alege stilul steampunk, să se concentreze pe fotografie sau pur și simplu să capteze amintiri într-o pagină scrapbook.

Art sets you free

Art sets you free


Cristina este artistul profesionist. Ea-și lasă pensulele să atingă pânza pentru a crea idei, obiecte și figuri, într-un vârtej de tușe fluide de pensulă și culori atent selectate.

Dreptatea by Cristina Dragomir


Magnus se concentrează mai mult pe o idee anume decât pe tehnică. Folosește cel mai adesea vopselurile acrilice sau doar un creion, încercând să surprindă o senzație sau o idee.

Și mai este un artist, deși el nu ar fi de acord cu această afirmație, pentru că este un tip modest și cool. Dacă arta este un mod de a transpune o formă în cu totul altceva, atunci patronul însuși este un artist. Creând un mediu foarte relaxat și creativ, el folosește un alt fel de pensulă pentru a crea propria sa lucrare de artă.

Așa că nu ratați restaurantul 12 Doișpe, delectați-vă cu arta expusă acolo la o bere sau un ice-tea.

Pe Magnus și Veronica îi puteți găsi acolo în fiecare duminică, așa că dacă vedeți un tip desenând într-un carnet de schițe, nu ezitați să dați un semn.

12 Doispe, ett hem för konst

12 Doispe

12 Doispe

Med början den 2:a november till och med slutet av månaden pågår en gerilla utställning på restaurangen 12 Doispe i Craiova.

Tack vare ägaren har konstnärerna Veronica Svanström, Cristina Dragomir och Magnus Svanström fått en chans att visa sina verk. På ett väldigt flytande och dynamiskt sätt är konstverken utspridda överallt, vilket gör att de både smälter in och står ut på samma gång.

Detta är tre konstnärer med väldigt olika stil, vilket gör denna utställningen till en väldigt intressant tillställning.

Magnus Svanström


Veronica är gift med Magnus och hon startade sin resa in i konstnärsskapandet när hon bodde i Sverige. Hon är en konstnärinna som skapar scrapbooking till mixed media, i stilar som går från Steam Punk till den rena glädjen av att fånga ett minne på en scrapbooking-sida.

Cristina är den utbildade konstnärinnan som låter penslarna flyga fram på hennes dukar, där skapar hon idéer, objekt och ansikten i en tromb av noggrant utvalda färger och flytande penseldrag.Dreptatea by Cristina Dragomir


Magnus fokuserar mera på idéer än den faktiska tekniken, han arbetar oftast med akrylfärg eller en enkel blyertspenna i ett försöka att framföra en känsla eller en idé.

Så har vi en sista konstnär även om han själv inte skulle erkänna det, en väldigt jordnära och trevlig kille. Om konst är att ta en form och skapa något nytt då är ägaren en konstnär. Genom att skapa en väldigt avslappnad och kreative miljö använder han en annan slags pensel för att skapa sina egna slags konstverk.

Så besök 12 Doispe och njut av lite konst och kanske en öl eller varför inte en frisk iste..

Magnus och Veronica kan man allt som oftast hitta här på söndagar, så om ni ser en man med ett skissblock är det bara att komma fram och säga hej.
