Anthony Bouttell's Wind Surfing Imagery

Wintertime in Hawaii is the season of big wave surfing and strong trade winds that also fuel a very active wind surfing and kite surfing scene. Studio Artist user Anthony Bouttell has an online gallery of Studio Artist generated wind surfing images that give a feel for the wind surfing action happening in Kailua Bay on the windward side of Oahu.

Anthony describes his work as "photo-graphics. "With photography, the mere act of taking a picture has altered the image. Choosing the camera format, the film speed, aperture, type of lens, and a host of other parameters have all contributed to a unique vision of the subject. The darkroom now exists inside of the computer, which simply extends this creative process into the digital realm".

Artificial Afrika - A Tale of Lost Cities

Studio Artist user Vernon Reid is premiering 'Artificial Afrika - A Tale of Lost Cities' at Dixon Place in New York City every weekend this month. This multi-discipline piece explores the Dark Continent merging world music, hip hop, film, and visual art. Artificial Afrika examines the idea of Africa, not only a continent with a multiplicity of cultures, languages, and peoples, but also Afrika, a country of the mind.

Grammy award winning Reid is joined in collaboration with Akim Funk Buddha and DJ Leon Lamont. Studio Artist was used heavily to create the multi-media imagery in this critically acclaimed show. The next 2 shows are February 24, 25 at 7:30pm, Dixon Place, 161A Chrystie Street, NY, NY. The Lounge opens at 6pm.
