ART IMITATING ART (AIA)

Ten (10) amazing artworks by the 10 Wanna be Artists! They created these during the ARAL PINOY'S FREE Acrylic Painting Lesson for A Cause, with the theme: ART IMITATING ART (AIA). Aral Pinoy launched today a fund-raising amazing artworks! This event for a cause is a collaborative initiative between Art Party Ph and Aral Pinoy. The proceeds collected out of the paintings that will be sold will be used for the schooling assistance of the Aral Pinoy Scholars for the school year 2019-2020. Aral Pinoy is grateful to all the support given by those who are involved on this event that they made it possible by their love and generosity. Through their amazing artworks, they are offering one of the many solutions to solving the problem for the need for teaching Good Manners and Right Conduct (GMRC) by teaching through Art and Values Integration (AVI) by raising the awareness on HUMAN VALUES as many outside factors influence children’s values in this new age. These are the FIVE HUMAN VALUES, namely, (1) Truth, (2) Righteousness / Justice, (3) Peace, (4) Love and (5) Non-Violence that are already embedded in them and inherent in the society and are also found cross-culturally and in all spiritual traditions/religions. With the theme: ART IMITATING ART (AIA), these 10 Wanna be Artists imitated or copied a portion of a cubism artwork of Pablo Picasso, the Guernica, a style of painting showing objects that are fractured into geometric forms and using multiple and contrasting perspectives in a single painting. "It is regarded by many art critics as one of the most moving and powerful anti-war paintings in history, and is one of Picasso's best known works." Those who will buy these artworks will not only have the joy of appreciating them or beautifying their homes or offices, they will be investing for the future of Aral Pinoy Scholars. Buy now and invest for their future. The artworks’ prices start from P2,000 pesos. See the posting of each of the artwork of the following the 10 Wanna be Artists soon! https://aralpinoy.pixieset.com/aralpinoysfreeacrylicpaintinglessonforacauseartimitatingartaia/

The subject of the paintings is inspired by Spanish artist Pablo Picasso’s famous piece “GUERNICA” in context with the 1937 Spanish Civil War as expressed today by the Aral Pinoy Volunteers-Artists. The purpose of these anti-war arts is to cultivate peacemakers and a culture of peace through painting. https://aralpinoy.pixieset.com/aralpinoysfreeacrylicpaintinglessonforacauseartimitatingartaia/ Read more here: https://www.pablopicasso.org/guernica.jsp Guernica (Spanish: [ɡeɾˈnika], Basque: [ɡernika]) is a large oil painting on canvas by Spanish artist Pablo Picasso completed in June 1937.

It involved the bombing of civilians by a military air force, allegedly a war crime, at the time unparalleled in military history and brandished as one of the first crimes against humanity to grip the global imagination.
