FRIEND's Review of the New Damyan's Exhibition at Nouvum Hotel

The Novum Hotel is a new Hotel opened in Prague in 2007.
It has a very interesting and high standard of interior design and the spacious rooms are well decorated and comfortable. The bar and café is very relaxing with nice lighting and a friendly staff.

Recently the hotel opened an exciting and original exhibition of PORTRAIT and GRAPHIC ART by Damyan. He is a young and talented Russian artist living in Prague and many of his works are celebrity portraits, Prague Graphics inspired by Art Deco designs and Celebrity portraits.


All the works on display are signed limited edition copies in mainly A3 format in A2 format frames (42 x 29cm). The originals are often for sale also on request. If you like the style and content of the works on display you may also COMMISSION a portrait or full body drawing/painting of yourself or your partner.

Portraits and Prague Graphics are all mounted and framed and look very good in the halls and rooms of the hotel adding a lot to the character of the interior. Even if you are not staying at the hotel it is worth stopping by for a drink and to look at the exhibition….ask for a card of the artist in case you want to order or commission your own work. NOW is the time to order or purchase for CHRISTMAS as they make wonderful unique and affordable GIFTS for all ages and types of people!!

Prague Hotel welcomes our new exciting young artist – DAMYAN!


This autumn we are happy to expose a variety of works by a talented Russian-German artist.

Damyan has his own site specializing in CELEBRITY PORTRAITS but recently has been doing new works portraying the beauty of male youth in a highly original and appealing style.

He is happy to paint or draw COMMISSIONED works in the medium and size and style of your choice. They make great gifts for that special person in your life or perhaps you would like a portrait of YOU!

Most of the works on display are signed limited edition COPIES (thus the reasonable prices), but if you are interested in seeing/buying the ORIGINAL just let Harry or one of the staff know and we will confirm if it is still available and the price.

Damyan’s GRAPHIC works (many of Prague) are very detailed and original and inspired by art deco themes and design. His other passion is MUSIC of all kinds and he has been filling some of his weekends as a DJ at local clubs.

Feel free to contact the artist directly about any questions or commissions or ideas you may have. Thanks for your interest and we hope you enjoy the works on display.

Damyan's Exhibition In Villa Mansland Prague


Hello all my dear visitors, readers of my art blog. Here we are, after the hot and interesting summer full of adventurs and discoveries I started to plan where to exhibit my art in Prague.

Mainly the idea was to exhibit the Limited Edition Signed Reprographic Copyes of Celebrity Art Deco portraits and Prague Original graphic works by Damyan...

And the very first exhibition took place in the beginning of October 2008 in Villa Mansland Guesthouse Prague! I was really excited to get my art out of the studio and please the curious eyes

of Mansland visitors with detailed black and white graphics and Sublime and Expressive portraits of famous people like: Amy Winehouse, Elvis Presley, Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, 50 Cent, Orlando Bloom, Madonna, Will Chalker, Tom Cruise, Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears, Accent, Princess Diana, Jennifer Lopez, Christina Aguillera, Marilyn Monroe....

I exposed nearly 60 Reproductions of 20x30 and 30 x 40cm sizes.

The Prague Graphic works also include the Full colour Collages also exposed in Villa Mansland Guest House. The Exhibition will last till the end of November 2008.

Live Portrait drawn by Damyan at a Party in a Prague Hotel Villa Mansland

Hello World!

Here is a video clip of Damyan drawing a portrait of a young man at Easter at a private party in Villa Mansland Hotel Prague. The Portrait took 2 hours of work.
The Model - Jiri was very patient, and posed quite well. Even though the illumination was bad, the artist succeeded in capturing the face expression and the typology. It was the very first drawn portrait of him, so he liked it. The owner of the hotel bought the portrait at the auction. And now the work hangs on the wall in one of the hotel rooms.
Just like this Damyan can create a portrait of you.

AMY WINEHOUSE - A 5* Winner of the US Grammy Awards
























February 10, 2008 is Amy Winehouse's Day!
Amy swept the board last night at the 50th Annual Grammy Awards in Los Angeles (2008). She picked up a stunning 5 awards in the six categories in which she was nominated.
The music has NO BORDERS! Art has NO BORDERS! Even though Amy didn't receive a damned USA VISA [I had a similar bitter experience too] - her music travels and brings a lot of pleasure to people and music fans all over the world!







On the pictures on the left I present you the sources of inspiration for the portrait I have done. Antonio Gaudi's masique sculptures and arhitecture, and the byzantine mosaiques. Byzantine Mosaic and its traditions taken from the Great Roman Empire Art are still a great source of inspiration for me as an artist. I am putting some good examples of Byzantine Portraits of Saints and Queens with Kings. So here I will show all the main stages of creating the portrait of Amy Winehouse, the Star of the Month!





I Iwant to share and show my work that I recently did, a Pseudo Mosaic Portrait of Amy Winehouse. Her music, her style, incredible voice and original appeal inspired me so much that I wanted to create a series of her portraits, but I will share today only with the FIRST one:


Also, as I am passioned of architecture and as I love the original style of Antonio Gaudi (25 June 185210 June 1926) - his GENIAL architecture and interior designn. Especially his mosic works left a deep trace in my creativity and imagination, which have also inspired me to do a portrait in mosaique technique.


"Amy Winehouse" (2008) PseudoMosaique by Damyan TwoNine
Dimensions: A3 size : 297 x 420 mm
Support/Medium/Technique: Colored Pencils, Black Ink on Grainy Art Paper, Mixed Medium, Rapidograph.
Availability: Original Available for Sale, LTD Signed Reproductions of any size Avalable.

Looking for an Affordable Unique Gift for all Ages and All Occasions?

Many people waste time, money and stress searching for the ideal gift for a loved one or close friend only to find that after all their efforts it is received politely with a feeling that they wish you had not bothered! Others make the mistake of thinking that they need to spend a small fortune to impress the recipient. Look how many gifts were sold on ebay after Xmas! Can you imagine how you would feel if you saw one of the gifts you gave a loved one sold on ebay?!

So read this and STOP making the same mistakes, change your mindset and not only save time and money but also ensure that the recipient of your gift will be happy to receive a unique, personal and lasting present. Think back and ask yourself what really touched you when you received a gift? Was it not often the unexpected gift or the one that showed a lot of thought went into it – the gift that was given with love.


Let me give you an example if I may. I organized and led tours all over the world for international students for many years. I knew as a guide that I would be lucky to get any tips or even presents at the end as schools and students were not expected to do that…….many colleagues working in the adult tours market made much more. I liked the fun and challenge of working with youngsters and the fact that each tour was different and it allowed me to see the world and learn a lot.

You may say to me how can I find that unique meaningful gift as maybe you have or know one of the following:
- a wealthy man who has it all
- a fussy wife who has special tastes
- a teenager who changes his wants list according to the latest fad and fashion
- a well known person or celebrity who you have no idea what to give that will be liked


NO MORE STRESS AND WORRY!
ART GIFTS ARE THE ANSWER…….
how about an amazing and beautiful portrait gift according to your specifications (or you can allow the artist to use his creativity and imagination as my portrait artist friend Damyan did when painting many celebrities!). When looking at this portrait artist’s site and seeing that he also does COMMISSIONS and how different and talented he is, I offered to write a page about UNIQUE GIFTS for his website as so many people do not think of ART when looking for unusual and lasting gifts that will mean something to the receiver! Of course the artist has to be talented and also offer something different with a wow factor or you risk the recipient disliking the end result.

GRAPHIC ART Inspirations for a Professional Skill Artist


Good evening my dear readers, friends!


Today i will reveal my graphic art inspirations and main Artists that I admire in graphic Art. As leonardo Da Vinci said "The Drawing is the Most Important Art and A BASIS for All fine Arts"
So here are some relevant examples of graphic art of Otto Wangner (Austria) and Gustave Klimt(Austria). Their detailed graphic works for decoration of publi buildings, private houses, concert halls, Railway Stations had a lot from the Secession Art deco style, using the principle of filling the particular spaces oif the composition with flowers, vegetal elements, golden and silver accents in expressive stuffed square .

insertments in CONTRAST with empty, simplified stripes and figures of architecture or people.





Gustav Klimt slightly begins to stylize the figures, decorates the Portraits, experiment with painting and sculputre.

This principle is often called "Full-Empty" which makes the Art Deco style stand apart from all the previous tendances in the Fine Arts. The Composition, The Decorative pannel or the portrait with Empty squeare spaces and small stuffed parts with deco elements make the composition fresh, and catches the eye on certain parts of the composition. Stylized deco Fonts rise the expression of Secession and confers the conposition an aspect of Applied Art Work.

Gustav Klimt's Graphic poster for the Secession Exhibition in Wien (Austria). the composition begins to be devided into parts of interest filled with details and empty spaces.





While Klimt - a rebel Artist - who wasn't recognized and was toughly criticised by the leading Professors and Artists did a more bi-dimensional interpretation of the real subjects like landscapes and Woman Figures. The period of Art Nouveau seemed to make the artists perceive the reality otherwise... the perspective was not so important any more. The academic detalisation and the Air perspective, shading and true live colours were not a priority any more.
OTTO WAGNER


The Art had allready new horizons and objectives. Art Deco was a hymn for symbols and shapes. The portraits became decorative and slowly evaluated into posters and stylized monumental figurines. very often these figures were simplified into squeare and narrow sculptures on the buildings, designing a new era and conception of Art.

A Very good example of Art deco style and expression of the mood of the time in graphic art are Otto Wagner's Graphic and Architectural projects.



"Vienna" graphic Work overview by Otto Wagner. Otto often used black ink and watercolour for his graphic works. Very detailed and serious realistic approach.
























Damyan's graphic Work dedicated to Prague. "Prague The European City". I used the image of the GIRL (dreaming) from Klimt's painting, as Europa - the Goddess on the background of Europe in top, after that zooming into Czech State with famous panorama of Prague with bridges and ending with prague Map graphisme.

Damyan's Graphic Work "Prague - the HEART OF EUROPE - Mater Urbium" Black and White Ink technique on Tinted Grained Paper. Classic book Frame from the Middle Ages. Prague as a HEART on the fading Europe image which transforms into the sky clouds. Prague View with Saint Vitus Cathedral and PRAHA inscription in the bottom part inside the Frame. Work with Middle Ages inspiration.





















Damyan's "Pargue - The Heart of Europe" Negative Print Version. Winter version. Prague at Night. A3 size (297 x 420mm).
